Troll Servers

Postby FailureofHumanity » Tue Dec 03, 2013 8:08 am

I've always relied on public servers since my computer could only host games sometimes, so one day I started noticing servers with many people and great connection, but the host would not press the start button. I'm quite sure that all of these times are not coincidences nor afk, but people just enjoying suffering since this has started to happen in almost every large server, so does anyone know any good ways to identify and avoid such servers without cutting off all large servers? (Sorry if this is stupid) Btw, I've tried testing the host by asking them for a response to see if they respond, but that is an unreliable way in my opinion.

I've seen a few, when I first tested public servers. But come on, they are pretty obvious. Still, arses will be arses.

Anyway, private hosting ftw!

Lol, just join a server with maybe like 10 people for slot openings.

Any server you will see with 99 people as the cap limit isn't a server, it's just a chat room. In the odd chance they do try to start, the server will most likely crash. Most public servers can't handle anything over 20 people.

You're best bet is to find some frequent names that are reliable for you. I'd recommend this guy. His server can hold up to 20 players reliably(got in with 30 players with him once). If you're not getting in, that's something on your end.

I saw that, but the "up to 20 players reliably" seems more impressive than just a single feat.
