Par, you got your server pieced together again, or will it be LDA?

heh, I got there at 9, only a few peeps left then. (Max, and MealonCracker). Max left for a bit in the second round, so it was really just me an mealon against a bunch of bots.

amazingly...I won by three frags. I can't belive it..(playing alot of GROPOS, entirely different game in the way it handles)

define a good turnout.

This board is dead.

The servers are nearly dead.

So I thought to myself why go through the hassle when their is a low enough head count now to play on LDA?

Whats the definition of having dead servers? We have more servers than we ever have players online, I find that kind of funny.

ok, so everyone except LDA shut down.

Will anyone care? I think so, but maybe I'm wrong.

Try an experiment? Turn off your TM servers for a few days and see what BBS noise is generated.

[disclosure: I play mostly on LDA, just looking for anybody online while I'm online.]

Do that I'll kick yer TM butt on the Armageddon server all day...just kidding!! Every game has it's ups and downs. This game is how old? 3 years old and never got marketed correctly? I play to have fun and garner some gaming excitement. DDMs or not, I just want to blow up stuff...

I rarely have the time to play, and when i do i get the usual spawnfrag situation which is frustrating at best. Ive recently found an old zip of an install of bz1.8 which i currently play tue/wed - its an ancient game and some of the ppl are dicks, but the ones i play with, play with honor, so thats cool.

Cant speak for gropos, but i am forced to wonder, if these 2 big mods emerge (bz and gropos), if anyone will be left to play em ?

Or care ! Seems to me ppl are discovering new games..

for the record, i dont believe that 9 to 15 ppl on one server could be deemed a good turnout, bz has 1 server left and gets about 30 players. and its a dead game that was also poorly marketted, in fact dead from the neck up at launch, even the publishers expected it to fail, but at its busiest it had around 400 ppl on a server at any given time...

Now 400 ppl is nothing compared to quake ! or indeed the whole world community of millions of gamers, yet bz endures and is still faring better than tm, i find this unsettling in many ways.

my point is that it takes me 30-60 minutes every firday AT WORK to prep the DDM server. For what - 5 players? That's waht the turnout lately has been for a DDM. IN A ROUGH NUMBER!

Not the 25-30 we used to have.

So that's kinda my point.

changed my mind. Gonna leave the demo server up till LDA gets rid of the demo download.

Par, Dont sweat it. Everyone realizes that you have other things goin on. Thanx for running it as long as you did.
