4.1 vs 4.2 situation
« on: November 27, 2013, 12:34:32 am »
Looking at this graph

http://www.urtstats.net/42vs41.servers.php?duration=month

The number of 4.1 servers has been getting smaller quickly for the past month. Also, the gametracker positions for the TLWS servers are going up (mainly the Germany one). This means that more people is playing somewhere else.

Also, about our LA instance:



I guess moving to 4.2 had some kind of unexplainable "success" (despite almost nobody plays there).


So, this thread is to discuss what are your suggestions about scheduling a replacement of the 4.1 instances.

As I've said some time ago, my idea is to move the Dressing Room server (if someone still play that one xD) and the FFA one.

Well... part of those numbers are that most servers contain 8-10 bots. I don't know if gametracker is filtering those results, but when I've gotten on 4.2 I can usually only find one or two servers with real players on and the rest are either empty or literally filled with bots.

i come on LA every now and then for a couple of minutes and rarely finds the servers with atleast 4 people excluding bots.... im talking about 4.1 btw.. just putting it out there.... that graph seems kinda fishy...
Anyone willing to help me out on a simple Siggy project of mine?

I don't get it, sorry.
The graph is for the 4.2 server :P


@Durandal They filter the bots in the # of players, so I guess they filter them to rank the servers, but I have no idea.
