    The game servers have moved to semi-dedicated hardware and IPs have changed. Please see front page server widget for up-to-date game server information.

    I know...and it hasn't even started yet...right?

    Anyway, I noticed that on Sunday when the maps are split between 2 servers that the event starts at the same time on both servers. I personally think you should stagger them. As it stands, at 11:00 central I'll be on the second server in the list to help build the population for when my map comes around.

    I don't know where the servers are located, but if one is eastern and one is pacific I'd recommend going ahead and splitting the start times by that difference (i.e. both at 11:00 a.m. in their respective time zones).

    If not, it'd still be a good idea to stagger them, and you could switch which one starts first each week. That way all the gameday ppl will be on 1 server for the first map or 2 - hopefully long enough to draw in some outsiders before they go over to the server that will be running their map.

    Way ahead of you m8 ;) I'm well aware that last time we used multiple servers, gameday suffered from being under-populated. With that in mind, I suggest you reread this portion of the thread;

    I remember reading that now. Pretty awesome that they've agreed to provide some gameplayers. It'll be helpful to see how maps play with ppl who spend more time playign than mapping on the teams :)

    Here's another suggestion request: Have the server title match what is in the thread.

    For example, today's gameday thread says:
    U.S. TF2Maps #2 72.14.183.213:27015

    but in the server list it shows up as : -E}{G-/TF2Maps.net Best Customs and Stock Maps

    Any chance you could get that changed DURING THE GAMEDAY EVENT to something that says gameday event (so it's easier to tell which server in our favorites we're supposed to join).
