    The EU server has been behaving badly for many weeks now. I've been wondering why it hasn't been fixed but I just realized... Has anyone actually said something on the forums?

    So anyway;

    The EU server has frequent lagspikes that make everyone lag for several seconds at a time. I'm also noticing some general lag despite my ping being good... But maybe that's just me. The biggest problem is the lagspikes anyway.

    We need to have this fixed soon!

    Also, someone else mentioned that they suspected the server was full due to STV demos. I don't know much about this but maybe this should be investigated.

    OH, and speaking of STV demos, do we really need them recorded anymore? After all, people generally don't need them... And without Boojum off the staff no one uploads them to the site anymore. The Announcer spot on the server is causing a lot of headaches as it takes up a spot... Techincally, but the browser doesn't see this. So when the server is full it shows 24/25 players, which effectively breaks auto-joining. STV is just a mess.

    Instead of SourceTV we should stream everything done on the server ever.

    Not a bad idea, but in that case everything would be seen from one player's perspective, so you might as well just ask a friend to record a demo if you can't be there.

    The server is getting annoying. I don't know if it was server's fault, but I was getting over 250 ping. (I usually get ~60) No other apps were using the network.

    For the record - after all you yanks left and we were about 8 or so people, there were no lagspikes anymore.
