Forced to downsize...

Hey guys,

For those unaware, there's going to be an update at the end of the month - regarding the CSGO Panorama UI going live by the end of the month.

With this update, it's cutting out the MOTD! Which means, no more advertising for community servers! Shitty Deal!

I'm going to be forced to downsize the server count! Everything will depend now on donations.

SERVERS AREN'T CHEAP!

I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to be doing yet with the server count, but obviously we have to downsize!

What I'm thinking is...

1 - DM/FFA (US) - Our most popular DM server. 192.223.24.235:27015
2 - Retake (US) - Our most popular Retake server. ???.??.??.??:27015
3 - Retake (EU) < This server is extremely popular. 31.186.250.97:27015
4 - 1V1 Arena - 40 Slot - Our #1 server by far. 162.248.93.9:27015

For those who play in the retake (US) servers - PLEASE POST AND "VOUCH" FOR THE US RETAKE SERVER THAT YOU'D LIKE ME TO KEEP!!! I'M UNDECIDED ON WHICH ONE.

I haven't really seen the 1v1 Arena server reach it's max that much. It's usually at around ~25-30 at its highest. IMO, 40 slots is just a tad bit much.

I disagree,

Last night, the server was so full that 1. All the arenas wouldnt show, and 2. people were waiting in spectate for an open slot.

You've never seen the 1v1 w/ 40 people? It happens lol it gets really loud the couple times I have been on it when it is full xD.

Also, I'm sure someone will come up with another way to play advertisements at some point lmao.

Unlikely. With Valve it seems once they make up their mind they stick to it. They probably have a decent reason to remove it. It could be seen as a security exploit as it is a chromium browser window, in theory, it could be hijacked to perform an unwanted action. So from valves side removing it doesn't hurt them but it removed a potential issue for a player.

It's shitty for servers and communities that did nothing really wrong with it but yea. I doubt it'll come back.

Understandable changes. I'm happy as long as there's at least one NA retake on the East Coast.

I play retakes the most, there is really no retake server that is the most popular. I think there should be more than one server however. 2 servers would be perfect to be honest. I can't really tell you which retake server is the most popular. Since we have so many I always see around 4-5 completely full.

It all comes down to $$$.. the 4 servers are going to cost just under $100 USD per month as it is...

I'm all in for #8 because that is the retake that I play most on and also the only retake that I get under 80 ping on. Just my preference though. 😁

Because Valve isn't making money off those advertisements that's why they are removing the MOTD's. I would also like to say that I have seen the 1v1 servers fill up quite a few times. Although we have several 1v1 servers I would still like to keep 2 of the 1v1 servers so that if one fills up we can still have access to another to play on.

@PandaWubs It all depends on how much the community is willing to support the servers to keep them running. If we kept two of every server in every location that someone wanted we would have the same number if not more servers than we do now. So I feel like he will only keep 1 1v1 as 1 full all the time is better than one full all the time and the other empty or half full. Nothing says down the road if the community is supporting the servers and people play them that he couldn't turn on another server of any kind.
