hmmm... and more hmm...

why is it that no one plays online. I stopped playing INF since the sobservers are gone. The last time I checked I saw many 0/16, 0/8, etc. servers. INF use to be fun and could still be fun if more people played online, I hope people agree with me.

Infiltration is not just a mod, but a whole new look at Unreal Tournament

Thats a great thing to say /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think that youll see a change when 2.8 is released (its really going to blow people away). The other issue that hinder online play are the bots, while they are nowhere near human players, I imagine this factor drags people from the servers. Give it some time, itll happen /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't give up on online play because the SOBservers are down. It can be a little hard to find them, but the couple of online games I played with real human players made it worthwhile (even if I had 3x the ping of everyone else...hehe, well at least I won Fulton /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ).

I do agree with you, but sometimes I think you have to hop onto an empty server, do a little bot abuse and wait for other players to join in. Problem with people not joining empty servers is tht they stay empty /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

And hopefully by 2.8 they'll have the master server working so finding Infiltration games will be much quicker process.

Hopefully our servers will be back up to snuff by this weekend. We are also in the planning stages of adding another 1 or two servers using a different ISP to increase redundancy, so that should help.

Once our ISP get's thier issues fixed, we are going to try to make use of this forum to schedule gametimes on the servers so that people will get together more often. The problem demonstrated by what you said. You stated no one plays on-line. Earlier today, our Team DM server had 9 people on it. The problem is that the community is spread all over and everyone plays at different times and people will not play with bots longs enough to draw more players into the game and few join a server with 0 players on it. In order to get a game started, someone needs to take that plunge. If I catch the server empty, I try to join and play for a while. It never fails that there are 6+ players on when I leave 20 minutes (or 10 hours /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) later.

SG Servers also has a few other plans. We are considering setting up a server whose game modes, settings, etc. will change weekly based on a poll run from our page. This is probably a month down the road, but we hope to increase usage by making the servers appeal to a large audience rather than being configured the way my staff and myself prefer them. Until now, I think most Server Admins have chosen to run servers for themselves and let other people join in. Since we eat the cost, that makes sense, but we would also like to provide servers that are configured by what the community asks for.

Also, the 2.8 release will definately help things out.

Plus, with the addition of the Real Maps server and the other servers that are coming on-line there will be better selections so people can find a better ping. And ping is what draws the players in many cases.

High ping is why I don't play online. Once we get, if we get ,DSL here in Ponca City, OK USA then I'll be out there again. In the meantime my bud Emthon is trying to get our ISP to set up a UT server(then upgrade to Infiltration). We'll let you know when its up and running.

Warning:
Playing this game might lead to major digestive problems.

Or do you just get too much lead pumped into your stomach by the bots? Cannot wait to meet mean mofu Neo online

You got off so quickly... it is not fair. I got killed by you so many times and then... at this celebrated moment when your head disappeared in my sights you disappeared, too. Got a headache? When do we continue?

Gameranger (Mac only :P) will download the server list, ping the servers (5 at a time) and get all the info from 'em. It will sort out all the Infiltration servers. I usually count around 25 something. Only a few have people playing on them. I used to be one of them.

But like Neo, I've been playing 2.8 one helluva lot. I have yet to vomit, though my heart has been doin' some funny things lately.

Anyhoozawhatzit... I look forward to dishing out gallons of whoopass on everyone here and when you get killed by me (possibly from behind with the ka-bar) I want you all to look at my ping. Yes, that's right. A whopping 190-500 ping on my rusty ole 56k modem. You got fragged by an HPB and you didn't even see it coming.

I will take all of you on (and give you a run for your money). No exclamation mark, no yelling; a simple statement. And anyone who has played INF against me knows not to let me get ahold of the M16.

I for one, will play a lot of INF when 2.8 comes out. And I expect a lot of others are waiting for 2.8 as well. /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
