Perhaps it's time someone stepped up and put some money into the US server problem. Huntress left a gap when it had to be closed. It was run through www.nfoservers.com if someone is interested and needs a reliable host.

With Bulldog out of the loop, I currently see no way to make a joint US/EU server happen. I will start two seperate Playground threads for this week, one for US and one for EU. US gets a server of their choice and EU plays on Funbocks as usual. I hope this is in the interest of all parties involved ;)

you could even do the staggered-days thing for EU/US, too (i.e. when EU is on wed-fri-sat, US is on thu-sat-sun, then the other way round). that way, there's less overlap and so less chance of ending up with two half-filled servers, with the exception of saturday, which is the strongest in population probably anyway, reducing the half-filled server probability.
or would that fragment too much? I'm not sure, this depends on if US/EU people will still play on the other "side's" higher-lag server, or decide to stay away until "their" event comes up.

That's how I planned it, yet.
How servers are populated, or rather continue to be populated, in the EU and US "downtimes" is up to the players... I can only suggest to play at certain times ;)

Derp

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Could one of the US players please chime in and give a suggestion for a nice US time? My browser window with the Playground-US thread has been sitting there for hours now and it just needs a time for the event to start  8)

So, I was on today for a bit, and it was mainly 4v4 TC. Just a single data point, but still, quite the difference compared to the past couple of Wednesdays.

Edit: Looking at Spooky's tracker, it seems the population got up to around 20 players. Still, when compared to the past week it was fewer people for a shorter time.

That's disappointing. Hopefully the numbers will pick up on the weekend.

I'd like to get some opinions from our Australian and New Zealand players; specifically if it's been possible for them to participate in any MWLL gaming lately, maybe on one of the PG-US events.

I think the Funbocks server are more forgiving when more players are up. Matchbox kicked me out at 16 repeatedly so I could not do much yesterday.
Watch "Save the Supers" you will get some laughs in.

Should I ever be listed at the top of my team, then we have a serious problem.
