    Official TF2Maps.net Server - Dallas, TX
    Server IP: 174.34.133.100:27500



    Official TF2Maps.net Server - London, England
    Server IP: 85.234.148.93:29015


    It was obvious that after 5 minutes of announcing the server consolidation, that our EU members were going to have none of it.

    So, we're back to 2 servers. In in Dallas, TX and the other in London, England.

    I've created a group that consists of the following members:

    • grazr
    • Flame
    • Icarus
    • Snacks

    They will be in charge of keeping the servers updated, and online. They will also be able to upload maps for those without VIP access. Them and ONLY them will be allowed to do this.

    They will take requests via forum PM and chat/steam friends.
    They will upload maps as they see fit.

    The New York server will stay online for another 2 weeks. The maps that have been uploaded to that server will be available.

    The site's upload system is now transferring maps to the new servers.
    The admin is now active on both servers.

    Please post all problems with the new servers here:
    http://forums.tf2maps.net/forumdisplay.php?f=27

    I'm sure there will be some bugs to iron out as always.

    The Dallas server is being hosted by Frag Fest Servers, so yes different host.
    The EU server is being hosted by INX Gaming.

    I'm hoping through all these moves someone forgot to pack that in-game stats plugin... really rather pointless.

    The idea was that it'd be used for on server contests or something where, say, the player with the most play time each month would win VIP for the next month or something. That never actually came to be realized.

    So from 2 servers that i get high ping with, to 1 server with low ping, back to 2 servers with high ping. I just hope they don't crash nearly as much as our servers usually do

    How do you get high ping with a Texas and London server and low ping on a New York server?

    Oak: Live in New York, for starters.

    I get an equal ping to Dallas as I do to London. About 80 or higher.
