#127 - free server reservations in Projects

Lots of DDoSes recently in NA, so we're trying to get DDoS mitigation on more machines. A total waste of my time and budget for this project, but unfortunately it's necessary once more.

Like in the EU, the NA servers with Anti-DDoS are now marked, please use these for your casted matches. A total of 24 servers with DDoS protection are available right now (LA and Chicago), we're looking to add a central location soon, probably Dallas.

ArieWe're also looking to retire the aging FakkelBrigade machine (hosting EU and some gameservers) after almost 8 years of service and replacing it with a modern 6-core machine.

The EU site is now hosted on a shiny new machine, the site might feel a little faster :)

Donations have been solid for NA, so we're looking to maintain the North Carolina machine in addition to the locations from my previous post.

#4 controlling servers while streaming in TF2 General Discussion

You could also use sourcemod and you won't have to use RCON passwords.

Install sourcemod and make/edit a file called


And in that file put:

Why would you be a mod in a pedo's channel, especially after a thread like this?

#125 - free server reservations in Projects

Yeah, it took a while, but we added a second Chicago-based machine providing 8 gameservers in addition to the 8 NFO-Chicago gameservers. Due to tragicservers going away we had to get a bunch of extra capacity in NA on short notice. This has resulted in having too many machines right now (compared to the amount of money coming in from premium), so we're planning to get rid of the Dallas and North Carolina locations as these are the most expensive, and the least popular we think. Let us know here or on Discord if you disagree.

This would leave NA with these locations/servers:
Kansas City 1: 4 gameservers
Kansas City 2: 20 gameservers
Chicago (NFO): 8 gameservers
Chicago 2: 8 gameservers
Los Angeles: 8 gameservers

In EU we had to cope with a price hike for one of the datacenters we use (i3d), but we did that by getting a better deal on the servers in France. So you might've noticed 2 new French DDoS-protected machines (BaguetteBrigade/CroissantBrigade) that are taking the place of the 2 machines we had before.
We're also looking to retire the aging FakkelBrigade machine (hosting EU and some gameservers) after almost 8 years of service and replacing it with a modern 6-core machine.

#2 server crashes when i connect in Q/A Help

Assuming it's a linux server, install 'gdb' and start the server with -debug. Let it crash, check the debug.log for clues.

#1380 PugChamp in Projects
NasBoiiHow come EU pugchamp has some sort of issue every 3/4 weeks

Because it's an all-volunteer site on a $0 budget while being under constant DDoS attacks. And now the EU pugchamp anti-DDoS system is refusing connections from my DDoS protected EU servers.

This is why we can't have nice things.

#123 - free server reservations in Projects

We're still waiting for our tragicservers to come back, so in the meantime we're adding some new servers and locations to to have some more options and capacity. Also, one of our machines from our Kansas location is having more and more issues, so we're looking to phase that one out soon.

First of all, 8 new gameservers in Chicago (NFOservers), these are live right now. We'll also be adding 8 more Chicago servers from a different company/datacenter soon. That server is paid for, but out of stock at the moment.

Also live now from a different datacenter/company in Kansas City, 16 gameservers running on a 12-core machine, a bit like Kroket/BolusBrigade in EU.

#7 question about LAN-streams. in TF2 General Discussion

Because a rapist might just reset your stream key during a LAN if you don't fully control the channel.

Edit: My lawyers inform me I should stick to "alleged rapist and known stream saboteur"

#122 - free server reservations in Projects

Two things, first, for EU players, please use the anti-DDoS servers for official/casted matches and TF2Center games.

Second, for NA players, our long term sponsor Tragicservers (<3) is changing their infrastructure, so while that's happening we're down on capacity in NA. Once the move is completed I'll have to try and integrate their new gameserver control panel with

This might prove to be difficult, even though I have used their new control panel software succesfully before (TCAdmin at Simrai), that was thanks to the exceptional access granted to me by SimRai, because TCAdmin at the time didn't allow you to restart servers (through an API) without extensive administrator privileges.
So bear with us while we wait for this move to be finished.
