There aren't enough servers! I can't do much about this considering my comp isn't strong enough to host a server, but I would like to see more! Right now, there are about three running. One of which is private! Because of this lack of servers and the abundance of players, the servers are often over crowded, and lag is unbearable. Someone do something about it! Please. As I hear, it isn't that hard to set up a server. So if a few people could just set up a few extra servers, I would be really gratefull. Thanks.

P.S. Since I know you are going to say "why don't you do it" I will reply in advance by saying because my comp sucks. End of discussion.

Over-crowded servers? It's called a full server, and it happens to be a good thing.

When at least two public servers are up at the same time (i.e. Crackaz and Brody's), I have NEVER seen both full. So, I don't think we need more servers. Just more players.

Most people don't host a server because it doesn't just take a good pc and a good high speed connection, it needs a spare good pc and an unused high speed connection, either that or pay the 40 some odd dollars per month to have a company host it for you.

Indeed, Crackaz is great.... til you break something.... but i hear thats not for long.

Even brodys is unstable these days, VERY unstable.... I might start putting the TuF server back up.
