i vote 24, we have enough servers imho.

i dont think it would be a problem to find the money to get more servers if we needed to. robot pilot nerds are generally happy to spend money (think mwo).

I'd be happy to donate a bit of money towards server hosting if need be. The mod is completely free after all, so I'm already up $80 on what is basically a full AAA game from 10 years ago ;)

a year ago we had quality pubs from 3v3 on and considered a decent one at 7v7 already
when we had 9v9 it was considered "full house" ::)

I think we wold be good at even 18 max, or 20, but 24 is really really enough for a full featured public game IMO

And if disconnects continue to reign, we will cut to 20 "to be sure"  - better be excellent than too massive a match?

I agree - quality over quantity  ;)

vvv Maybe he's right!? I've joined right at the start of a renaissance :D

Nah, man. MWLL hasn't "basically already died off." We are in the MWLL renaissance.

6-7 in the morning and almost two full EU servers :o. With some familiar names too! Same with tha American servers around that time. People really like getting their MW:LL fix before work  ;D.

I'd say 22-24 would be optimal too. 4-4 guys coming off two servers can comfortably seed a third and attract those 2-6 lone warriors sitting on otherwise empty servers. Wouldn't go below 20 though, as someone suggested.

how about gradually?

have the SA as is (16?), make official maps (least bugs) be 24 and mixed maps (so relaxed re: performance) be 20 for a while?
 :o
have the community decide (by using the better ones) which number is best?

I'd go on a limb here and predict that over the year there will be more waves of both people who are completely new to MWLL and more disgruntled MWO players incoming here.
There's still quite a lot of people who think that MechWarrior 5 will have some sort of multiplayer.

80? Meh. We had over 130 tonight and it's still going super strong!
don't bother sending me PMs, I probably won't be reading them in time.

Even with two servers going down at once we're at 80.
