If by bringing it alive you mean populating 9 servers with fake players then sure.

instead of running in circles alone waiting for a player, it has gladiators and if a player connects, a gladiator will be kicked automatically to keep player count at 8.
If you mean the fake players on masterlist, I dont wanna do that but because of that .dk server on top of masterlist, which had collected all the very few lithium players left,  I have to because he's faking it and much longer alive than mine, otherwise nobody would check a new one (see empty lithium server 24/7 on tastyspleen), the lithium scene is very small and the only 'bigger' scene is DM which I dont like that much, so I have good intentions. If that .dk would stop the fakeness, I would do that as well , because of him, I would have no chance as a new one without this fakeness :/ I hate to do it, but I have to to stand a chance in this scene, dm is different, like tastyspleen and playground but lithium scene is too small.

But the other server has bots that blast eachother without skill, so I'm not worried, players will see the difference by trying that the bots on mine dont get that easily killed as his one, so it will work out eventually ;)
I started those servers because his one was the only one populated sometimes but it's a very boring game, the bots are blasting eachother in the water in q2dm2 for example and than you get this on the scoreboard (let's assume my name is superman)

1. superman 220
2. botone 29
3. bottwo 26
4. botthree 28
5. botfour 12
etc.

You can imagine how boring this is , so I needed to change this because I like lithium that much but this server didnt satisfy me at all, so I did it as a service, but also for myself!
On top of that, that alternative server is malicious (forcing downloads even when you disable it as client) and he's hiding the menu to chase players, just a couple know how to do it on his server like me, so he has weird intentions, no mapvoting and just the 8 dm maps and a very long timelimit.

I just wanted to give a better alternative with more diversity.

I played on that one other lithium server yesterday after a while and bots without skill are very annoying you really feel stupid if they dont have the skill to deliver a punch so I would prefer to play alone on my server than on that server, even if it has 2 more real players, I like a challenge and cant find it there, so it's just a matter of time (if you like lithium, I do, I like to fly, I enjoyed lithium back in the days on xs4all in 1999-2003, I played till the sun came up and the slots were always filled on both servers offered)
Now you'll know why I had to fake some players, It's the only way in the lithium scene where you should be happy with 4 real players joining the same server.

greetings

i don't see a problem with putting bots on a server to get noticed. i still connect to my own server from time to time to get to the top of the list myself (with all the wallflys) players like to see some players in the server because more often than not, empty servers are filtered out.


(see empty lithium server 24/7 on tastyspleen), the lithium scene is very small

Well i had asked quadz to create that server at the time but he didn't want to limit it to any 1 players restrictive settings, instead community input. so he just left it up. The lithium scene is small and sporadic yes.


and the only 'bigger' scene is DM which I dont like that much, so I have good intentions. If that .dk would stop the fakeness, I would do that as well, because of him, I would have no chance as a new one without this fakeness :/ I hate to do it, but I have to to stand a chance in this scene, dm is different, like tastyspleen and playground but lithium scene is too small.

i don't see the competition factor here. this game is way past old, i don't think anyone has a chance to get an alternative server off the ground really,(unless you have lots of friends that are players, that like the mods.) as for competition? there is no beating tasty or acme out of it. they will remain populated until they shut down which will probably not be for a LONG time :-) other than that, we have pretty much the same reasons why we leave our servers up, to hopefully see players come and to preserve the fun/nostalgia/integrity of the mod, regardless if anyone shows up or a small fraction.

anyways, i noticed your server is in europe, netherlands or france? i ping 160,  i tried playing the bots it was pretty fun, but your mod is more like lfctf vanilla and it's laggy to USA players. not knocking the server, but your base will have to be european players mostly.

True, it's in the Netherlands, I have the same problem with Tastyspleen, ping is very high for me :)
So besides my own servers, playground is the only alternative which has populated DM server.

Good luck to you, but I'm quite positive that lithium is dead in Europe.

Funny story: it took me a couple months realize i was playing against bots on the DK server.  I was like, "why are THEY so stupid?!" turned out that was the wrong question!

I am 100% pure AcmeCTF if you took an X-ray would probably see a wormbot inside of me... that being said, I love tastyspleen and appreciate their approach of offering all things Quake 2.

In particular, it was amazing to have the Mutant server feature the new maps from the q2cafe 2015 mapping contest... wicked good idea guys! 

I would love to see more of that kind of curation on Mutant.  It could be like when a classic rock radio station lets a listener be the "DJ" for an hour to play 10 of their favorite jams.  Give the power to a single player to set a 6 - 10 map mutant rotation for the whole week, and let's see some of the community's favorite "deep tracks" custom dm maps!

Anyways......... thank you Amplifier for starting up a new Lithium server!  I will check it out for sure!

thanks :)
well, my energy is not appreciated by all people, that guy from that same dk server has started an offense by lying on every board you can find see this and also my reply:
http://quake2lithium.com/forum/lithium/400-playing-lithi-is-still-the-only-thing-i-want-to-do?limit=6&start=12

(still wondering where tastyspleen said that I'm bad for the scene and where I said something bad about this great community who kept q2 alive in general)

people with questions about this guy, I'm @AmpliF1eR on #Quake2 channel on Quakenet.

greetings to all ;)
