Hello everybody,

as you all know all of our Servers were 64 size before. I am trying to make some changes for the better, to see if more people join and keep the Servers alive for longer periods of time (instead of seeing them empty all the times).

So, I have changed the size of Gulf of Oman from 64 to 32, and lowered the Ticket count a little bit. What do you think of the 64 map size compared to the 32 size?

The airspace is a little bit tighter, there are two less flags as well. What are your thoughts about this change?

This is what they've told me in-game too, but I'd like to experiment this and leave it like this for a bit. Perhaps we generate more traffic to the website too, of angry Players wanting to revert to the old 64 map size! Laugh However you put it it's a win win! ahah

EDIT: Two hours later and it's 27 Players both on Oman and Wake, seems like a good Sunday for gaming!

Well right now it would seem that Gulf is performing as good as Wake, which is awesome cause Wake is actually the most popular Server we have runnin'.

At the moment there are actually a little bit more Players on Gulf than on Wake! We surely need to get more popular in Europe but I am sure 5tarLine would want us to become popular even overseas.

Do you mean the time limit is to low?
I should check how much I've set it too,
surely lower than what was before, like ...
... 2,5 hours. Laugh

Well, if you say that the rounds are shorter, that means that in the same time unit (say, 1 hour), you play more matches on average that what you used to play "before". So, the amount of points might be lower for each - shorter - match, but in the same time unit (1 hour) the total amount of points is the same as "before" (because you play more - shorter - rounds).

I don't even know why I am attempting to explain this because I don't even have any idea if what just said it's objectively correct or not; furthermore I am basing this statement of mine on a subjective statement of yours, so there is not comparison and my CPU just turned 90° degs for nothing. wink

I'll tell you what, the Server looks better to me than what it was before, but let's try with another setup; some sort of middle ground between the current setup and the old one. What I would like to have is a full server, and a happy server as well; we just need to find the right balance to have both those green lights turned on. smile

I'll apply the changes this night, when the Server empties.
