Another newb question if you do not mind. Is this a beta? Their are not many maps and I am just curious if their coming out with alot more and or do we have to pay for a retail type? I have looked around the web but not alot of info.
No, not a beta. Those are all of the maps available for now, though many custom maps are starting to pop up all over the place, some good, some not so good.

The server will be taken down in a few days. I don't have hardly any time to play any more due to work/classes/family.

Sorry for the buzzkill and the terribly run tf2 server the past month or 2 =)

:(

Oh well, good luck!

How much does it cost to get a decent server up and running anyway?

When I looked into it, a good, 100 tick server was ~$50 a month.

Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the info.

Where can I go to find more information?

I just googled "team fortress 2 server" and "counterstrike server" etc and just looked around. I'm not sure who the best to use would be. I know eventually we'll have a website server (or 5 :))

Heh, cool. I just did that. I'll take a look around and see what's out there.

Cheers,

I've grown attached to the "Sunlit TF2 Redux" server. Good ping, basic rotation, and almost always full.

Do you have the IP? I have a tough time finding these servers without the IP. :eek:

They have another server too that I play on if it's on a map I prefer, but it isn't full as often:

Well, I just got my 1U Xeon 3060 Dell server. I'm going to be getting some colocation space in the next couple weeks. I'm trying for a space in a data center that has a pair of OC146 connections. Once I'm there, I'll open up a server that will run a handful of small time websites and 2-3 game servers. That will smoke any $60 hosting you're going to find where they pack 8-12 servers on lesser boxes.

For now, I mostly play on the SourceOP server which is 32 players and almost always full. It has standard maps and rotation as well as stats. Try that one and if most people have good pings, we can make ATOT our clan tag.

Well I stick to 32 player servers where it's a little more difficult to rack up insane numbers of kills without a decent number of deaths.

With two medics being the next highest score totals I think it's safe to assume one or both were pretty consistently healing you or each other. 10v10 with decent tactics that's tough to beat.

I had the weirdest thing happen. I had put auto-cinnect on a server that was full. I then went to another server and started playing, knowing I would eventually get taken to the first server once a spot opened.

When that eventually happened, I was playing for a bit then noticed I was not playing as KeithTalent, I was playing as someone named 'nullname'. So I left the server and went back to the old one I was at and it said I was banned, then I tried another and it said I was banned.

I had to restart Steam to get things right again.

Very, very strange. :confused:

Well, it was 12v12, but that was the end of the map so people left. I play on 32 player servers from time to time, and it's definitely harder to live. I think I can attribute my longevity due to the lack of spies. I never got stabbed once.

(yes, I know I'm bumping a "dead" thread)

Just got Orange Box last week - been playing TF2 mostly. My Steam name is HoosTrax. I think I already saw a few people I recognize (like SexyK aka AgentZero).

Well you can always add me as a friend, I'm on quite often (this game is like teh crack for me). I'm under KeithTalent, but I most often play on West Coast servers since, um, I'm located on the West Coast.
