Regarding US-West LRP servers

Postby pmtrudeau » Sun Jan 12, 2020 5:24 pm #535107

Since it looks like Manuel has become the main US-West server now, LRP US-West servers are pretty much dead with only a few people playing on them now. The event hall has a lot of people, same with Terry, but they're both EU servers. North Americans generally have a lot of issues with EU servers because of latency/distance. My average on EU servers is generally 200+ms.

I've been thinking that there is way to keep LRP for NA players alive (there isn't really another place to play in NA with a player count above 15) by possibly 1) Merging Basil with Sybil 1 to get a higher player count, and adding a LRP or Action tag to it. Or 2) Removing the Low-Pop tag to Sybil 1's name, and adding a LRP/Action tag to it. I figured since Manuel has that tag, I think the other servers should potentially get it as well.

Another thing would be potentially converting the Sybil-2 Refugee center to an MRP EU server, so that there's a type of server for each continent.

These are just ideas and if anybody else has any other input, that would be great!

Ah, didn't know that! Do the LRP/Action labels sound good as well?

just hold off and people will stop playing manuel after they start catching bans for trying to shoehorn LRP in a server that doesn't want that.

Shifted this to policy discussion as it's not code related.

This would require paying for an *entire* new physical machine.

We only have two physical machines, one west coast and one eu.

Unless you can front the cost of a new dedi on the west, please don't keep suggesting this like turning of one of our virtual servers somehow frees up funds for a real server in the west coast.

seems like it's a bit early to say that

I don't honestly think it is. People are going to flock to the big pop servers, while the other ones will be left out to low-pop. Another suggestion would be to make a US-West LRP server available on the hub potentially.

implying it's the "main" server is a very different thing than saying "it's current;y the most popular server due to how people keep joining the most populated server"
