#90 new dm servers in Projects

King of the Hill maps generally feel like total clusterfucks by their very nature. That said I think ramjam is my favorite one that was added because it's rather wide and spacious. I thought lumberyard was alright too but it definitely had issues as well, to be fair.

#5 Bad routing to chicago servers + somewhat high ms in Hardware

This bullshit started in early November for me. Almost any connection I make the signal goes to Denver first and then to anywhere else.

#69 new dm servers in Projects

The soap balancer makes the servers play a lot better most of the time. The problem is that every once in a while it goes into a frenzy and isn't satisfied with the teams so it keeps balancing repeatedly. It's definitely annoying when you're the person who gets balanced on each of these consecutive waves. This is not ideal and we were looking into some solutions to keep the same people from being balanced in two consecutive waves but haven't finalized anything yet. For now we could tweak both the frequency of when it checks frag totals and/or the % difference that causes it to decide to balance. I do believe that they're set pretty much perfect right now....except for when it gets into this frenzy state. So we'll mess around with it and make it balance maybe a bit less aggressively. We obviously don't want people to have a super crappy dm experience.

There are years of 'control' experience for how dm servers play without the balancer. Often the teams would spontaneously end up with most of the top 8 players on one team and the worse ones on the other. Of course nobody would ever just manually switch due to a mix of laziness, apathy and the risk of losing their desired class slot (and I wouldn't expect anyone to). On map change, when most of the players stayed in, you would get largely the same teams because people load in based on the speed of their computers (and net) so they'd load in exactly in the same order. It should need no explanation why the server plays better when the teams aren't horribly lopsided. It's better warmup/training/fun for the best players, the worst players, and the middle of the pack when the teams aren't utterly stacked. You also get some increased variety as far as opponents you get to fight which is a good thing.

But anything I say you can just counter with "shut up. who cares. it's just dm. just go shoot people." So let me go ahead and airblast that right back at you. You literally respawn right away. Just resume blasting, dude. Getting balanced and shooting at the wrong color takes, what, 1-2 seconds? And you're upset about this happening at most several times in the span of 10 minutes (length of most maps)? So you want to forgo the benefits of balancing in order to spare yourself a few seconds of annoyance? "shut up. who cares. it's just dm. just go shoot people."

#1 lfp RGL S5 in Recruitment (looking for players)

Looking players for RGL S5

--WE HAVE OUR TEAM. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TRIED OUT--

Likely mid-high Main. Depending on the final roster we might have to play Advanced but probably not. We plan to play the standard Sun-Thurs, 930-1130~ est. Must be able to mostly be here for those times (and by extension of that: no HL players). Performing decently well is important but just as important is being easygoing and fitting in with the mumble atmosphere.

#14 Spaceship server costs in Projects

Hello friends. It's December. I didn't want to be annoying last month but now I'm back with the same plea for a little help to keep The Spaceship servers operating. The financial situation is only very marginally better than 2 months ago. I gave 20 bucks last month and now again this month. Would you consider throwing a dollar or two Steph's way? Thank you!

I have made this absolute abomination to help inspire you to donate. Maybe if you help out I could promise to not make something like this again...

#3 Plinko LFT S5 in Recruitment (looking for team)

Would proudly call him Dad. What Florida said above is all 100% right. He's the coolest guy with a ton of valuable experience. Over a 1-2 seasons I saw him dramatically improve and get back into fragging shape. Best of luck to you man!

Powerful and smart gamer with a low mouse sens. who can play every class. Has a positive attitude and works super hard at anything he sets his sights on.

edit: I was there, live, on stream, to break Tery's heart with this FL/MA fact.

#21 koth_clearcut in Map Discussion

https://www.teamfortress.tv/57319/clearcut-graphics-performance-troubleshooting

The map runs at 10 fps for my one backup player that I have to use this week who knows how to play scout so I guess we're hosed. In summary: The Candles aren't worth it. Cheats have to be on in order to disable dynamic lighting and we obviously can't do that.

The other thing that might contribute to fps issues is that the map has a bunch of full tree models around the perimeter (though only on the red side anymore). Often stuff like this is in the 3d skybox or has a draw distance that is limited. So like the trees in the mid arena only need to be visible if you're in the mid arena. The ones by red spawn only need to be visible if you're in the spawn area (very small), etc.

Another month arrives and Stephanie is still experiencing difficult times in this coronavirus economy. Even if everything were back to normal I still feel like this is something our community should contribute to regularly to help keep these services available. I am asking for your help once again in keeping the Spaceship servers up. Even just one or two dollars, if you're able, would be highly appreciated and helpful. I have given 15 this month and hope that our generous regulars can help to meet the rest of the goal like we were able to last month. Thank you!

Please help if you can:

Yeah those are in the works for some improved spawns but at the end of the day there's no guarantee that it doesn't totally suck anyway.

#6 M17 LFT for s4 IM/Low Main in Recruitment (looking for team)

Really nice guy and you can tell he's dedicated. Plays well. His greatest strength is that he can speak and play at the same time. If you have him try roaming that puts him above most other roamers and is an immense asset. Gl dude.

#1 Spaceship server costs in Projects

This is regarding all of the Spaceship servers (MGE, DM, bball, ultiduo, etc). I focus on the DM servers since they're the main ones that I utilize and for the fact that they're the only proper DM servers in NA. These servers provide important services to our competitive community. Many nights now I see all four of the primary DM servers full and that is awesome! But as with most good things in life these servers are not free. It costs 75 dollars per month to keep them running. Steph has been covering this herself for a long time but now has come upon tougher times due to the virus. ( https://twitter.com/spaceshipSrvs/status/1287828476272218113 ). Yes the tweet is from last month but it's no different this month.

I ask for your help. Last month I paid the entire $75 but that's not something I can sustainably keep doing. I know there's a whole bunch of people who are regulars on these servers (definitely the case with DM). If you're someone who utilizes and appreciates these servers and can afford to help with the costs would you please consider doing so? I realize there's many people who simply cannot but I know some people out there can. Even if it's just 1 or 2 dollars that would be super appreciated. What about sending 1 or 2 bucks every month? If a small group of regulars did that then we'd be covered. Seems like more than a fair price to pay for these services. (I already gave 10--guess I REALLY like my DM servers)
