UKCS Expansion - New Servers!!!

Postby TC on Sat Apr 25, 2009 5:18 pm

I'm pleased to announce that UKCS is expanding thanks to the support and donations from our players!

I've bought a new Core i7 Extreme machine which is the fastest processor currently available. This will be installed in our data center and have a 1gbit internet connection. On UKCS we only like to use the very best for our players!

We will be rolling out the extra game servers of various game types over the coming weeks, starting off with additional TF2 servers. We will be offering an additional TF2#1 style server, and another dustbowl extreme server. The existing servers are both heavily used and there is demand for extra slots which this will provide. The new TF2 servers should be available within the next couple of days.

When starting new servers they take a while to build up a player base, as they won't be in people's favourites, and this is where you have a part to play. We will be looking to our existing players to help populate the servers and get them established. To help with advertising their existence, we will be using our steam group to make invite announcements and in a few weeks also sending out a UKCS news email telling everyone about them.

I'll be posting up info of each new server here as we release them. Other game types will follow in due course.

Happy gaming everyone :D

IS there a way to put an overflow type mod for the servers?

e.g. If someone wants to join UKCS 1 and it's full could they not be redirected to another server directly?

tbh I don't think you will need to worry about people populating the servers tbh. They will populate themselves rly. And we have alot of regulars anyway so it won't take long.

Just need to sort out the map rotation on the TF2 servers now :P

Brilliant News TC!!

Just as a question though, will we have to download an updated version of the GUI in order to join the new servers as a sponsor, or will it update itself?

:) :) :)

When it gets updated you can just re-download it from the TF2 section. I'm not to sure when the updated GUI will be put together.

Postby what would jesus do? on Sat Apr 25, 2009 10:14 pm

one normal spawn server with normal rules would be cool (24 players), but oh well. arena was ruined for me because of the 32 players upgrade (lots of camping with engineers) and #1 and #3 are also just too crowded. still good news, more ukcs players and everything. just hope they dont steal my slot on #2 %)
