hi there.. i was just playing forgotten hope and could help but notice that most servers only play a map one round. and i thought, well this kinda sucks, because if you hava, say 512mb of ram, you'd miss the intial landings at normandy, or the first wave of falschirmjager at crete.. so why don't servers allow a second round so we can experience all those things..? i live with 512mb of ram, i was shocked when the doctor told me, i never thought this could happen to me!

Because some maps suck or last too long; two rounds will cause people to leave. Breakthrough, for example, always lasts the full 60 minutes. Two hours on a single map is far too long.

Two rounds can be very boring on some maps, especially when each round lasts over 30 minutes, so very few servers put 2 rounds on their server. However, to help the people with slower comps be able to play the start of the battle, many servers now have their game start delay set very high, around 2 minutes, making it easier for everyone to get into a round at the start of the fighting.

I think that's the best way to handle the situation, long game start time. Though playing 2 rounds on some maps is great fun, for others it can be prolonged torture.

Our sever runs 2 rounds each with a 30 minute time limit - just to let you know.
