As it currently stands, of writing this post, there are a lot of plaza servers being hosted right now. Personally, for me, and someone I was talking to about this, we believe that this only spreads players apart, when we believe the original intentions of the game were to bring people together and unite them.
Back in the old GMod Tower days, there were only two servers, which held more players than the current servers of TU hold.
Why are there 8 western U.S Servers, 4 San Francisco servers, and 4 U.S Eastern Servers?
Actually, why tf are there that many servers in the west? When clearly, most players are playing on the east.
There’s also just a crap ton of EU servers as well, which I again, don’t get
Solution: For the U.S, have one eastern server, and one western server.
Give the Eastern Server at least 105 player slots, and the western server 64 player slots.
The eastern server here is getting more priority because the eastern servers are more active currently.
I’m not sure where you should go regarding the EU servers or any of the other regions, but keep in mind with what I said above, and you should have an idea.
Reason: In the original GMod Tower, as I said, there was only two servers, which allowed for more players to connect with each other as much as possible.
The maps are also very large, and allow for a lot of space for players.
Also, I think space for gameworlds, public condos, and etc, being limited, is healthy.
The original GMod Tower had limited space, forcing people to do other things in the game, allowing them to not do one thing for the entire time (I’m talking to you, casino/arcade goers).
Force people to do different things, and force them to wait in the plaza, actually hanging out with other players.
Waiting for games to start in GMT was actually fun, as you hung out with other players and hung out in different condos.
Conclusion: I seriously want this to be considered, so if you want to correct me on certain things, or tell me why certain things might not work, or otherwise give constructive criticism, I highly encourage that you do, so as to improve this game as a whole.
EDIT: THIS POST IS PRETTY MUCH OUTDATED! I WILL CREATE FURTHER POSTS ADDRESSING THESE MENTIONED ISSUES!
Have a good day, and I hope to see you in the next thread.
