There are quite a few server around, so can generally judge how popular a setup is by how populated the servers are.
Unfortunately so few people have been playing lately on classic servers that I don’t think this is accurate. There are 2 limitless servers and 7 or so limited servers, and only 1, maybe 2 out of all of them would be full, if any (sans the past few days since free weekend), so people would join the servers that had some people in them rather than none regardless of their preference–I know I do, as well as a few friends.
Regular official Singapore servers are dead… but there are now 2 TO Map Contest test servers (one is the old one, which was previously converted from one of the Official classic servers, and one new one that appears to be on a different IP / server).
Thanks, I verified the game cache and 6 files didn’t verify and were downloaded, I will edit this post when I play the game and inform everyone of any improvements.
EDIT: No improvements found apart from one server in which the lag spike dropped after I idled for a minute or so but that’s unacceptable I can’t join a match and stand still whilst expecting the other players to wait for me.
Thanks for reporting this. I’ve removed the names above in accordance with forum rules.
I’ll have a look around for the players you mentioned. However in the meantime it’d be handy to know which specific US Central LTS servers they visit or roughly at what times (also if you’ve played with them recently, you can go into steam > view players and if you can send me their profiles via PM if you still have them on the player list :)
