  • Where has the population during euro hours gone on the PR Server?

    I was working from home yesterday, took a break around lunch time loaded up PR, and *GASP* The TG PR server was dead as a doorknob!!

    We need an influx of Euro Admins stat!! - I think we are at full capacity for North American Admins - Not trying to be rude at all, so please don't look at it that way.

    Plus what is it that we as TG Members can do to help get the server during Euro hours up and running at its highest potential, the way it used to be?

      How would more Euro admins increase population exactly, unless you make it compulsory for them to seed. We have Euro admins, they log into CC and see the server is empty, hence they have nothing to admin.
      What might be an idea is if the players seed, instead they choose to play on other servers.

      I am perfectly happy with the make up of the admin team at this point, your looking in the wrong direction I am afraid Randy.

        I think some of the Euro guys have moved over to PRTA server, since that is a good teamwork server and the ping is simply better for them. (I can attest to ping being a pain in the ass having gone from 100 ping to 200 ping since moving to Taiwan) Also some euro TG regulars don't play the game any more who used to seed quite often.

        I'll be honest I don't like seeding servers, but I sometimes do it just to get the ball rolling sometimes. But generally my time is limited so I'd rather play a full game to be honest than seed on another server, to be blunt as it is nearly 3 am in the morning when in euro time for me.

          We have admins to cover the Euro times but like Wickens said, no one is there. Usually we can get about 3-4 guys on early, but you need about 15 for the server to start to fill quickly. Once you have about 15 guys you are high enough on the server population list that people see the server and join as the other servers may be full.

            this has long been a problem in euro hours. the issue is too many new servers.

              I was wondering when this Euro down time is? I ask because I go to work at 10:00 PST and my computer is on all day at home so I don't mind loading up PR and seeding the server. Admins can kick me once the population starts to rise. But I wonder if being inactive will get me an auto kick?

                Admins have nothing to do with the lack of Euro population. We've had this problem for well over a year now.

                  You can see from the graph here that the down time is from about 10am to 6pm. (GMT) Also there is an idle kick in-action, but I think that requires you to be spawned in. Not entirely sure.

                    If you don't spawn in you will remain there until the sun goes nova.

                      or an admin will ban you to remove you after the server is full (instantly remove the ban after that of course)

                      so if your computer is idle while euro hours just start PR and load in the server without joining the map.

                        Gettin' laid.

                        Although we could still seed I guess.

                          Correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't the reason we lost euro players because we moved the server to Texas. Now the ping for them is a lot higher then it was before.

                            1. Server moved to Texas. This didn't affect many of our TG Euro's, but to the casual Euro PR player, why would he play on a Texas server when there are some decent Euro servers? We've seen a lot of new Euro based communities spring up in the past 2 years. Our server move may have driven the passer-by away. No, ping is not everything, but it's hard to get a Euro player to join our server without any prior TG experience, IMO.

                            2. It takes seeding, which due to RL and other stuff, a lot of people can't do. It's up the the Euros, quite often, to seed the server on their own. Compound this with problem one, and it's hard to get the server going in Euro hours.

                              No.

                              We had lost the euro population long before we moved the server to Texas.
