I have a question.
How many coppers need the 100k servers?
Only 80k copper?
How to create the 100k server?
I create the 60-90k ladder server to 80k copper?
And Nadeo approved the 100k ladder server and not need another 80k copper?
THX

ps:Sorry my english is not good.
Nadeo need to approve the server, then you can uppgrade it. no need for another 80k coppers.
On sunday you set config to 60 - 100k, and it automaticly changes to 100k when ROC starts.

What about other upgrades from one tier to another (i.e. from 80k to 90k) ?

Do we need to get all of those coppers again, or just the difference?

Sorry - I should have been more specific.

When I specify the server username for a server which is already registered as an officlal LP server, will Nadeo only deduct (or give back in the case of a downgrade) the difference, or do I need to delete the server first, to get the coppers back, and then register it again at the new limits?

You will find them on many 90k ladder servers too. There isn't really a way to tell though, but usually, if all the tracks are good and challenging Rounds tracks, they've probably been approved at some point, especially if they also have a league tag, like ESWC, ESL, UL, SL, LE, GC, whatever.

I've been strungling to find a fun server with long tech/tournament tech. Especially on the 70-90k level almost all of the servers are Dirt, Speed or Nadeo...

You can find trackpacks for the next RoC in this part of the forum. Mostly posted in their own server topic.

Question:
It clearly states that for 70-90k and 80-100k "Big competition" tracks only. Does this rule still exist? I don't think there are any big tournaments using long dirt tracks or Nadeo tracks. ESL does run a speed competition, so maybe that tracks are ok (from those trackpacks). So why 90% of the 70-90k servers use those types of tracks, and are allowed to use those tracks? The rules clearly say something different...

Everybody has the right to drive what he/she likes, just wondering about the rules

No wonder I can't crack the top 100 after rollback Mondays.... no point for people with only Nations Forever to do RoC i guess
