Why people ban-vote me on FreeZone servers o_ò today it's the second where I am banned (Freezone Rock n' Lol)...
The TrackMania universal forum ^_^
I dont think you can blame this all on the freezone to be honest, i know it affected things to a certain extent, but the fact the game is now aging, and a new one on the cards, is a MASSIVE contribution to why many are taking a break (myself included).Badwolf2 wrote:@tcq
The point is though is that there is an issue, clans are closing down servers because nobody is driving on them anymore, and a lot more are sitting empty, which is good in a way I have a couple of servers i play on that were always full and so hard to get onto. Now though I can get on whenever I want, but it's damn lonely driving by myself.
Now don't get me wrong i'm looking forward to tm2, (should have been released last year or earlier), but there is an issue with the current setup or else people would not be having to close servers and people would still be driving on the servers.
Check out Madhouse (sometimes called Mkey's Madhouse), it's popular in the Australian evenings. Its a TMUF server - all 7 enviros - and it has plenty of server regs. As a pom i only get to play it when i get up earlydylaan wrote:I've bought the game however the Australian community seems to be completely dead. Not a single player on when I checked. Thanks guys.
Well out of 9 out of 10 players i have spoken to have uninstalled the game because of the freezone and have no intention of buying TM2, which is 90%. My point here is i can quote numbers too they mean nothing really....jamie_macdonald wrote: I dont think you can blame this all on the freezone to be honest, i know it affected things to a certain extent, but the fact the game is now aging, and a new one on the cards, is a MASSIVE contribution to why many are taking a break (myself included).
I know at least 50 TM players that are on a break until TM2 personally, and of the active players i speak to, that is around 80% ...
So just remember there are many contributors to a decline, including negative and presumtious comments and attitudes we see all over the place (this thread has lots for example).
Bit of positive thinking, and less assumption that you know all the contributory factors may help you gain some positive aspect on all of this i hope
peer2-peer functions for what?jamie_macdonald wrote: Peer to peer functions, increased LP ability in non stadium environments, and to support the dev who supplied you with all the fun?
I run mutiple servers (shells,game servers,webhosting,fileservers etc) and i know what i costs (not a lot these days anymore, traffic became cheap, gbit unlimited colo links for 30 dollars with great routing... **** i even have gbit at home for 50 dollars unlimited a month) but how many nations servers does Nadeo itself hosts? Not a lot i think at least that wasn't the case before and one master server (who only have to list other servers and some stats) isn't that expensive. So if traffic it's the problem i got a few empty racks you can have, np but that's not it.jamie_macdonald wrote: You try running master servers for TMO, TMOPO, TMS, TMSX, TMN ESWC, TMN, TMU, TMNF, TMNF variants and see if your ISP charges you for the traffic, i think this at least should be obvious to anyone with any hosting knowledge whatsoever... At least they continue to support us with all they can (money does not grow on tree's i guess xD)
Okay since when is this about reducing traffic or costs?jamie_macdonald wrote:No it's an attempt to reduce traffic/cost ...Read the OP for a clear explanation
You obviously didnt have quite as much traffic if it's affordable then

The Nadeo team is working hard to have the capacity for all simultaneous players using free accounts. If we encounter unforeseen issues, we will try to adapt quickly to the situation and we apologized before if we create troubles. We have been informed really late by our partner that they are shutting down our contracts, and we now have to quickly adapt.
Looking forward to your comments
