About SJC servers


Well, long story, but coming here to do a quick update.

At this moment, the server in SJC is still down. The owner of this company has been known for his lack of support, despite the overall good service. So, in general you don't need support.

Now, I am not the only customer with problems and they didn't communicate anything to their customers about this situation. He dissappeared several days, and now he is answering badly and saying that we, the customer don't have right to complain about a couple of days down.

The most probable reality, is that he doesn't have the money to pay to his providers, and to excuse this, he is discontinuing the services in San Jose, but is just a theory.

In conclusion, I don't see very much probability to get back the same server, and at this moment I don't have an enough RELIABLE box to run the UrT servers like I was. This was the best box, with decent uptime and performance for several months, now seems gone.

I will update you later. Maybe I will create a new Algiers server but that's all at this moment, or maybe the 3 servers, but I can't guarantee the same experience of game like before.

About SJC servers

Can I have his address??? I'd like to whoop his ass if he's down my street. What the hell kind of business is he trying to run...by the way, you can sue his ass (I think) if he doesn't deliver for the amount you paid.

LOL, thanks but no, you can't have it :P

And well, at this moment the company owes me some dolars, I am waiting a possible solution, just to erase my data if possible, get a refund and run away, because this will not be good in the future IMHO, if they stay in the market (and doesn't seems like that).

damn damn damn...those were my favoritest servers. Great ping rate, great gameplay level (sometimes if I caught it when none of the BIG boys were around I could place or show in the standings and feel like I was contributing to the team effort rather than being a loadstone), was even starting to recognize some of the player names and building a bit of camaraderie. If you had to choose only two of the three I'd lean toward the Unlimited/rotating map server and Algiers. I do have a spare case ready to go as I just upgraded. Needs hard drives. Can't remember specs of top of my head but if you're interested I can go find them if that would somehow help the situation you are in.

Cheers!

How about a semi-temporary fix?  I have a server available that you could set up as per the San Jose UrT Nights server.

8.6.74.222:27960

Its been sitting empty (other than the admins occasionally) since we tried to re-launch BLR a few weeks ago.

If you want to set up B3 the way it was running here at TLWS, you're more than welcome to do so.  My only request would be to keep the server with friendly fire on.   ;D

Thoughts?

PS.  I'd be interested to see how everyone pings there.  And ipwn, PM me if you need any access info.  No point in us having an empty server when you have a player base here that's feeling orphaned.

Friendly fire with a large number of players makes it less viable. Especially with relatively new players. Of course, with FF on you probably turn out a better player in the end, but I don't know how many players would prefer friendly fire after the freedom of not worrying about shooting your teammate. There will be people raging and injuring teammates. Personally, I like friendly fire on.

So perhaps we just toggle FF on when there are admins present to keep the ragers in check... ?

I'm just missing the usual crowd, whatever it takes to get a reliable server up and running again.

My UrT experience SUCKS without SJC. It's really the only server I enjoy playing at anymore. All my homies be killin' there too!

That being said, I am all for FF being turned on occasionally. If for no other reason then some well deserved revenge on those damned bots!!!

At any rate ... come back SJC we miss you!!!

Hi Gis, thanks.

As you can see, I have been running my servers in a very custom way, and that is how it works for me, a full root box and I do what I want on it.
Second, having a player base isn't a reality, because just for putting TLWS in the server name doesn't imply that the people will go to play on it. Also, the people doesn't search on the list, just use their favorites list. If the server is down, they will go to another with lots of players. Then, running a server and turn it popular, takes time...

And other arguments...

But again, thank you for your proposal =) I am looking for a box already

PS: Got your PM Mav, thanks for your recommendations

Quick update:

Sorry no time to post more or read the forum u_u

Just to say that I got a couple of boxes to test, almost same location, just another company and datacenter. So, wait until the monday, maybe I will have something ready.

I hope the Florida/De servers are performing fine.

don't know

was online on germany just before, had like in one minute 15 seconds without connection interrupted, but the other players did seem to be fine..., so I guess it was the connection form me to the server, 'cause my internet was working fine to other servers at the same time (ping-command had 20-25 ms to google)

about the not getting in
it did work this time, but also before it wasn't all the times, it only was sometimes
and having this time waited over 2 minutes (hmm, sudokus=) ) I got in, but I think that's a bit too long for such thing?!
