Damaged Gaming Community,
First off, thank you all for waiting patiently for Andy and I to get this new server prepared. I am proud to announce that we are putting on the finishing touches now, and the new server will be online in @ 9PM EST (30 mins from this post). This is just an announcement thread to let you the server it about to be online. I will also be making another post later to detail all of the changes on this new server.
There were many reasons for starting a fresh server. However, there are two specific reasons that I would like to explain. The first reason was for increased server performance. The new server is on a brand new dedicated machine that we have purchased through OVH. It has better hardware than our last server, and costs $50 less per month. We have also downgraded to an older release of the MySQL database, which Andy and I believe to be more stable. Also, for the last week, Andy and I have been spending around 18+ hours a day editing our server files for optimal server performance.
The second reason for the new server is that myself, and the rest of my staff decided that we wanted to make the server's gameplay aline more with our own tastes. Don't get me wrong, we were very excited to hit Rank #1 on Arma 2, but it required us to more-or-less "sell out." We configured the server the way we knew would gain server population, instead of the way we would want to play. The new server has been completely reconfigured from top to bottom to create an experience that we are truly proud to have our names on, and an experience that we ourselves would enjoy. We hope you all enjoy it as well!
Server will be online at 9:00 AM EST on 8/9/2016
New Server Address: 220.127.116.11:2302
