  • I need 30 sh_fullspec'd regulars on Chuckle at 8:30PM Central Thursday (Aug 7)

    TGNS remains 8v8. To be clear: nothing is changing that. I'm experimenting only with spectator count.

    Server performance was a concern when we initially considered allowing spectators during gameplay. We started at four, and we've comfortably grown to eight. Thursday night, I'm going to password Chuckle and hex edit its server executable to experiment with another spectator count increase, and I need to test without strangers involved.

    I've got a laundry list of concerns, both social and technical, but I here prefer observations over conjectures.

    Chuckle's password during the event will be "spectest" (minus the quotes). Please don't join with the password Thursday night unless you're prepared to prioritize testing over expedited and interrupted gameplay.

    Please don't give the password to anyone (regular or stranger), but please do point interested parties to this post. Participants will need sh_fullspec to join the server (immediately enable it on the TGNS Portal's FullSpec page -- no mapchange required).

    Thank you in advance for your help!

            Test shows unstable server perf above 8 spectators (w/ 16 players). I'll likely want to hold another test event just like this after we start experimenting with modified server/client rates (no ETA on that).

            Thanks to everyone who helped. I'm very grateful.

            We will not be changing spec count now.

              I had to bail early due to a family emergency so I'm glad you managed to get enough people. Not that I had any doubt! :)
