The Great TF2 Squeeze!

That's right folks, we're slimming down for the...err...winter! The restructure will happen on the 30th September 2015.

We're cutting away some of the duplicates and less used servers, as well as bringing something new to UKCS! Shh! More on that when it's done cooking.

The server names may be changing slightly, but the IPs will remain the same:
  • UKCS TF2 Instant Respawn (#2): 78.129.244.230:27030
  • UKCS TF2 24/7 Dustbowl (#3): 78.129.244.231:27015
  • UKCS TF2 24/7 2Fort (#6): 83.142.230.55:27030
  • UKCS TF2 Payload Rotation (#8): 78.129.244.236:27030
There will be a refresh to the GUI being released shortly, when it's done a magic link will appear HERE!

Thanks for continuing to support the community, without you there wouldn't be a community. Please feel free to leave us feedback either here, via PM to the admin team or email me direct apacheflame[at]ukcs.net.

Much Love,

The TF2 Admin Team <3

Mmmmm... monkey nuts......

Also, can't wait to see what the new server will be - it will be interesting to have something new to spice up TF2 on UKCS!

If you are faithful to just one server, you probably wont notice the changes. Although we have some new maps being tested out for the rotation servers. The new server wont be to everyone's taste, but it is something that has been requested in the past.

Nope, we haven't added anything and to my knowledge we are not having any networking issues at the moment. Occasionally we have problems if there is a problem with the network connection coming in from LINX (A main routing hub that takes major connections from Europe+the UK), but this tends to be transient.

If the problem persists then drop me a PM and I will look into it further.

They should already be? Occasionally we lose connection to the master server, but it is only temporary.

We have certainly been able to use eternaween etc before.

It's been nearly a month now since the announcement of a new super secret server, will we be getting news soon? How does the admin team feel the changes made were received by the community? I see #8 is still very busy during the EU evenings still. The downsizing was obviously a good plan for server cost reasons, but 2Fort and Dustbowl don't appear to have anybody playing any longer, the whole month is empty according to the Gameme stats, how long before some changes are implemented, new maps tried? What about some community polls to find out what people would prefer to see on these servers?

The new server won't be ready for a while yet, it's taking quite a bit of work to sort out.
We're also working on getting what was #2 fixed, we do have a new map rotation ready for when it is.
We left Dustbowl and 2fort untouched because they were the only other populated servers.

I'd love to get some feedback as to what you would like to see. People can either leave comments/suggestions here, PM me or catch me on Steam.

Thanks,
Matt/Sieben
