    Server Slots

    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking about building a custom server for us and co-locating it.
    Based on forums and feedback/ suggestions - it looks like people prefer 16 - 18 man servers over 20 - 24 man servers.

    So my question to you. Would you rather have 24 slot servers, or 18 slot servers?
    With the 18 slot servers, it's better performance on server and client. but with 24 slots ( my preference ) - I find it more fun.

    Share your input here. I need to know in order to start pricing the appropriate hardware.

    Thoughts / comments / suggestions?
    Also - TF2 server? Interested? Open thread !

    seeing how people come and go. and the number of good players VS bad... 24 seems to be a good number. in large numbers team work can make up for failings.. less people means super players can control the game more then they do now.

    Hmm.. I kind of like the smaller games. Of course, I get to play some of those on captains nights anyway.

    I agree with Kizer AND Drengor. 24 seems to be a good number, and for anyone looking to play a smaller match every now and then can sign up for captain's night.

    Ok, well it doesn't look like I'm getting more feedback. So what I'll do is run the combat server on Silver ( 18 slots ) and Keep Diamonds at 24. Emeralds has been sitting idle so I'll nuke it till we need it.
