    Return, z0mg!

    After a bit of black magic I've managed to fix up my schedule. I now have time for 3 (O_o) games. With this new ability I shall be returning to AS. Just in time for Telic/1.3, Yay.

    It just seems a bit of a strict rule. Why not have an amount of time, and play what you like in that time, instead of EXACTLY THREE GAMES per night.

    Saving room from forums and asking on this topic...
    ...Why are there those stupid 4 slots servers? >.<
    I mean, why couldnt there be few 8 slot servers?
    ...I just looked at the server browser and all 6 slots were empty and two 4 slots servers were full... I dont get it.

    ...Opinions people: Which is better 4 players or 8 players in swarm?
    I'm alive! I think...

    And I think some servers just can't cope with bigger crowds.

    But hey, welcome back Dur!

    Well, 8 players is too many in almost any situation. 6 works well most of the time, but you can't beat the excitement of a 4 player game. You actually have to think, and have a coherent plan...
    It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

    But in 8 player games I can be the tourist! Walking casually in the middle taking pictures and launching some speech binds now and then. Just remember to get a kill to get the "I'm so leet perfect medal"(collect them all! 7 in Sigma, 6 for Ortega and Phalanx).

    Just remember to avoid all the gun fire or consider getting a "My Perfect!" speech bind.

    It's not a perfect if you play the tourist

    Try getting 100+ kills without any injury, only to be shot by Mr. Long Uncontrolled Bursts.

    It's not that I'm playing exactly three games each night, I just have enough time to play 3 games extensively and in addition to all the other stuff.

    I still don't get it. Doesn't it depend on how long you play each game for. Or you could play a different game each day.

    Self discipline is the enemy of fun.

    Welcome back!

    As for 4 vs 8 player servers, THN 1 is effectively 8 players simply because this is already few people, and i think it's more important to have more people enjoy your games, than to have the best games possible. This leads to elitarism anyway, newbies are better off in big servers.

    OTOH, i and i'm assuming many others with me find THN 2 a very welcome addition and actually server of choice for the most time.

    Perhaps i should make THN 1 4+4 instead of 6+2.

    Kinda -- it gets more complicated when you're playing with a group of people. I play Thievery for the same two hours most evenings, for example, because that's when we all get together and play on my server. I could play it any other time I wanted, but nobody else would be around.

    Durandal is one of the taffers who plays on my server, that may explain part of this. ^_^

    Dont change the 4 ppl server. It's pretty good like this... Euro community need a small server like this. On my side, theres already 2x 6/7 slot servers (SOB & DayenTech). Mine is fine at 4+2, plus, it cant andle 8 ppl!

    At up to 4, Euro ppl always get a really bad ping on mine, most of the time over 200ms. So, a small fast euro server is really appreciated yeah.
