You're more of a Mel Gibson than a John Travolta.

I can only interpret that as a compliment, while both are self aggrandising megalomaniac assholes, with Gibson having the added allure of being a drunken racist misogynist. He is not a member of quite a currently pro actively evil cult organisation (though in historical remit Gibson's clan wins out there), and has actually starred in at least one truly fantastic piece of cinema as more than the limp wristed associate of one bad motherfucker.

That and he's certainly aged physically better that Travolta, and in all his drunken miserable glory has never put out anything nearly as embarrassing as Battlefield Earth or this... offering: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGNIDXUaVts

So cheers sugar tits, you did me a favour there.

Great to see another new/returning popular server BUT I just can't connect to it.

Main screen shows Huntress ping as N/A and when I try to connect it says 'connection timeout'.

For what is is worth I can connect to Matchbox #3 and Official #1 (both showing ping N/A before connecting and in-game ping of ~150).

I had exactly the same problem as you silver....

Ping N/A... connecting... connection timeout...

Just be persistent mate... its what worked for me, took ages, but it did connect in the end.. (for me at any rate)

Yeah some days I connect first try, some days it takes 3 or 4 tries to connect to huntress. I also get these weird lags where my mech will just hang where it is for like 20 or 30 seconds, then the game resumes. Something fishy on huntress server I think, I never get this on any of the funbocks servers.

That is packet loss. You have a bad hop between you and the server.
I suggest you run a "tracert" to the Huntress IP 192.223.26.136
That way you can hopefully see where the packets are being dropped.
The server is located in Chicago.

There are a lot of people playing without issue but I am always looking to improve it.
If you will notice you can see the ping to the server now, and it is also on gametracker.
I will be happy to help you resolve connection issues if I can.

Oh how heavy that burden must be  :-*

Oh and I also as you know Zath have some problems connecting to Huntress, but I am aware of how ungodly my internet connection is, a situation that might hopefully soon be resolved.

Keep up the good work you cipkas.

Bill have you tried recently?

I made a lot of network changes over the later part of the week.
It might be better for you now.
The network is now optimized for mwll and its periodic huge packets.

I've not tbh doll face, not for at least a week.

I'm just sliding into my spiderman pyjamas to watch 15 hours of Noddy reruns, but I'll give it a go tomorrow and let you know if there's any problems.

well chezzar that has more to do with the maps than the server.
the server can't cause a ctd, only the code in the game can.

Played a game yesterday after a week and it was the first time huntress didn't give me N/A for ping or issues with connecting. Ping was pretty low, too.
