Hello Fellow BOOM! Gamers...

This is one of several upcoming announcements I plan to release this week. Please read and stay up to date.

Over the past few weeks, We have fielded many complaints of people coming into the Hightower DeathMatch server and capping the objective with the cart. As usual, newbs join the server without reading the CAPPING IS DISABLED and cap the point repeatedly, thus ruining the fun of using the map as a DM Zone.

Today I successfully resolved the issue so people can no longer capture the point with the cart. The problem was we use a SourceMod plugin to freeze the cart, but the plugin resets itself every time the map changes or someone wins. I have now set a Cron job to automatically run and confirm the capture remain's disabled every 30 seconds. This will effectively block the cart 30 seconds after each round starts.

Please keep me post an any issues that come up and take care.. More to come!
