I was on last night around 10pm EST and saw this server listed. It had 8 bots, but ping was 0.

Tried to connect to it, but obviously couldn't.

Anyone can explain what that server is about?

it happens when someone starts a server, and then they decide to stop the server. It takes TM a while to get rid of the name of the server. But if the ping is 0 obviously it was cancelled so you know not to go there

It also happens when someone sets up a server behind a firewall...

Most Firewalls can stop incoming connections, but any time you run a Multi-player server,you send heartbeats to the master server if you are connected to the Web.

You can disable this in config.cfg if you wish to run a private server

If you want to regulate which applications, games, etc...can access the Web, use a firewall like Zonealarm to allow or block all outgoing connections to the web or LAN.

Thanks, guys.

In this case, I think specifically it's the CPL Event in Dallas happening this weekend.

discussed back here: /forums/archive/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000588.html

They're probably behind a firewall.

Yeah. I believe there is a fire wall. I set it to connect to the master server but it seems that it doesn't work. I had hoped that people would be able to join and play against the newbies here. Oh well...

We've had up to 9 people and 3 tanks at once over here...

Yea I saw the CPL server, too. Then I saw the Ping=0.

I was bummin' that we could't connect to the event. RC had all the newbies to himself.

Heh.

We ran the Tread Marks Tournament here last night. Some nice action! 3 elimination rounds (we had 22 people show up out of 36 that signed up). The finals round consisted of 6 players. It averaged almost 2 frags a minute for the leader and the other players weren't far behind. It was a very close game...
