Some good reasearch pzych0 :)

However back to the topic, i think the DoD server would need to be more populated to have another one. Plus you have to take into considersideration the cost of a new machine to act as the server, and money for bandwidth etc.
So it would be a while untill a new DoD |UKCS| server is about i would think?

I've received no extra sponsorship to even pay for the first DoD server, and only 1 thank you for upgrading that one to run on top spec hardware to increase player slots.

There will not be another DoD server unless players pull together to sponsor one.

Yup, TC doesn't have unlimited funds tbh. Seems like no areas outside CS seem to give the same support.

I agree and personally can´t think of a reason why someone would prefer CS to DoD, but a second server with permanent ff would certainly add an edge.

Sorry I´m broke so can´t donate, can´t even provide me with enough sound and fury

DoD:S is certainly quite large, but it doesn't come close to cs according to statistics. It is less than 1/6 the size of cs:s.

However, if the server is continually full, maybe a second server would be useful. It's about priorities, I suppose, and the amount of sponsorship coming from DoD is likely to make a difference in TC's judgement on this. These servers are more expensive to run than you could imagine (I'm talking many thousands for all the servers) - most of it directly from TC's pocket.

Im still a bit of a css fanboy but i got dod:s the other day and loved it. So far ive never had to wait to get on the server. Sometimes its near full but the first day i got it there was only 3 people playing, this was mid afternoon time. It clearly isnt as popular as the css servers are and maybe doesnt justify another server just yet. But if thats what the masses ask for then i suggest you start digging deep to help the big man.

At the moment there isn't the players out there to fill the servers as it is, so certainly no plans to introduce a 2nd server. If there's any issues in getting on the server then a VIP slot is the best option available to players.
