Dunno the name of it - it's been in my favs for years so I just click it. The name says "fast downloads - reg weps - zp" or some nonsense. It was always full - the day before it went dark, there were a few hours of high skill 10 v 10.

Finnaly you should try VM server there are many WH players. There are not only RX, but a lot of WH maps, NW and IG maps, also there is zero ping, which gives more equal chances and also there is NO WARPING PROBLEM :wink:

G will kick your ass there

I just don't like RX and that server is very heavy on the RX.

If you were playing, wouldn't that be a high skill 9 v 10? Actually, I get it. You were specing.

RX does suck in that most maps rely on the rocket. You can just launch a rocket at a person and they can't do anything about it. Kind of mindless.
I do love the WH maps on there and pretty much rule them. Most of the players can't play a map without a RX.

Saturdays see some traffic on WH. Come join.

Me too! Except I would like it a little slower so you have a better chance at hitting moving combos. Pretty tough at the current speed.

I think if we could put together a server on the East Coast of North America with ZP, we'd get the 100 or so Europeans players that were left behind when they shut the server down. It's beyond my technical ability, but I'd be willing to pitch in some money if anyone knows someone we could hire to do it.

Agree, from here it could be X or Dem(he had his own server in past) , from E-201 - Philp(really smart technical guy) @GNU you could ask him.

Working again, and they just kick my ass in my wootbatulus map :cry:

Question is how we can bring few of them here. Well I remember when ,fast download smoking'' sever was new and there were ONLY FAKE SMART PLAYERS (they move like real players, playing really well and talking but this were still bots) :arrow: later server was full of real people. In my opinion we should add few fake players on WH. If UT Server Browser will show active players online, real players will join for sure.
True is people(also fake) attracts more people,please consider this

Also several Latin guys from the old UK servers, UK closed IG and ComboGib servers, sounds good... Im in!

It looks like there are several regulars from North America, so I think a US East Coast server would attract some. That server starts bogging down at 20 players, and I've seen it with 32 playing. Another option might get plenty of traffic.

Ok guys, Philp will help, he used to run all the old E201 servers including NWs and IG - we need to know the settings, how many slots? Is New York City ok for you?

Feel free to check this website and have an idea of the cost: https://www.nfoservers.com/order.php - There you can select UT99, choose the number of players (Do not count the spectators, they are free to join) and select the period of time.

Who else is in?

Let me know if you have any doubt.

Just did a hypothetical costing and it looks reasonable :)

I'm all for this. I think we can get some people from VM as well. Not everyone likes the X8 rockets.

I know that Xero could stand up this server, if he has the time. I saw what he did to fix the crash bug here, among other things. Not trying to volunteer him but I'm fairly certain that he could do it. He's wicked smaaat.
