Quadz, I am truly amazed at how much money you spend on us. You could be going on a deluxe vacation every year with the $6,600 server fees. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'm going to assume you are doing pretty well financially. There's no way I could afford that.

Thanks & you're welcome. (My income fluctuates depending on how well our software sells from month to month. About six months ago things were pretty rough. That generous spike of donations last December truly helped.)

Rarely play Q2 due to "life", but very much appreciate your stewardship of the community.

For hosting costs, you could consider going virtual hosting.  I haven't done this myself, so it is just an idea.

east.tastyspleen.net is indeed on a virtual host, and Q2 has always seemed to be as solid there as on our Dallas dedicated servers.

I believe most if not all of the "packetflinger" Q2 servers also run on virtual hosts.

We run so many processes on these central Dallas servers, though. It's possible a virtual host could cope with it, but I don't know for sure. I've always liked having 8 physical cores juggling the dozens of servers we run on the fragbait.tastyspleen.net box, in particular.

But yes, it would certainly be nice to be able to reduce costs to some degree.


Regards,

quadz

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation
