  • Server is moving to Chicago (temporary?)

    After months of only many regulars having network troubles to the server, I've decided to give Chicago a chance to give us a better experience (we've been in Virginia so far).

    The server will move tomorrow (Monday). I'll post in this thread (and update this post) with the new IP, but you'll be able to find us in the stock server browser anytime, regardless of city.

    With input from players and observation, the admins will judge the Chicago network experience for all players on average and decide if we'll stay in Chicago or move back to Virginia.

    Thanks Wyz, I will try to make sure to monitor the route more closely.
    It seems like the Virginia hops have been fairly bad all around for a while, so hopefully moving to Chicago will avoid those.

      Virginia did this.

        Has the server been down all day?

          Yes. It'll come online in the next hour.

                It'll give you guys something to do while you're all stuck inside from the cold.

                  Also checking in from IA. Can't wait to try it out - several nights I had a terrible last hop to the server, here's hoping this improves it!

                    Anecdotally, the server seemed more consistent to most players tonight, with the exception of the weird server crash toward the end.

                    Will keep monitoring for issues.

                      The connection definitely seemed to be better for me (in Atlanta). If the server was in Virginia previously then it was probably in the DC area and therefore all-the-way on the east side of the US and in a very busy hub.

                      If Chicago doesn't workout you can always move it to Atlanta!

                            Looks up to me, holding at 16/17 players right now.
                            The server's IP has changed, so make sure you look up the new TacticalGamer.com server in your server browser.

                              Closer to me now, so working good, but no issues before.

                              One thing we did notice that was with the max number of bots added (25?) the server became extremely choppy to the point that everyone was rubber banding around. Don't recall if this happened previously or not.
