When I'm looking for a game is that ALL the servers available? Is that the total of players on the planet playing Starhawk at the time? I count less then 300 players in the servers visible on average.
I thought the Warhawk servers were the best I've ever seen in regards to info and set up. Something similar might force everybody to fill the servers instead of having servers that look like 6/32, 7/16, 12/24 etc.
Also the current set up would have to be rife with stat padding/boosting etc. Having the ability to create ranked games containing just 2 players is insane!
I'm not having a whinge but trying to get my head around the thought put into the whole server setup.
@ Wii, Yeah did that mate. filters set to display the max amount of players and games.
Next server question:
I'm nearing my rift skill badge so there's cake all over the servers and last night only 4 yellow fist servers where available to me.
If I play cake servers I am of the understanding that I will be penalised for playing less skilled players then myself. Correct?
Only 4 yellow servers where available and then they were frustratingly stupid with me stuck on the teams that would:
1. build 32 structures and no hawk base!?
2. Have players demantling our own Hawk base!?
3. Players that just base camped!? (supply bunkers ARRRRGGGHHHHH!)
4. Players giving me advice over the mic in TDM when I was the ONLY ONE scoring points!? (My head still hurts thinking about that one).
5. Rift skill badges stacked on the opposing team!?
6. Teams quiting and I find myself fighting off a base ravage (THIS happens a LOT).
Also I'm sick of feeling that I have to stomp some poor ***** as he respawns to get somewhere in this game. Unfortunately if it's not them it's you.
I hope the game balances out very, very, soon.
Last night I had to turn it off, I was SOOOOO depressed & frustrated over a stupid game.
I don't think you'll be penalised for playing the cake servers as such, you just won't improve your skill score by as much as you would if you did well in a fist/skull game. It's still worth playing the cake servers and winning if you can't find a good fist server.
There was another balance update overnight so perhaps the balancing will be better now. Tonight is guaranteed to be fun anyway, you'll be playing with us!
LOl caltalica at being annoyed enough to turn it off, I know where your coming from , i do the same , love it & hate it at the same time
but on topic the server list has had me wondering too , i used to get about 25 servers listed, then after the last update my server list grew to about 50 games available .
I also noticed sometimes ppl on my friends list are in a game that does not appear on the list of available servers,
I think i read somewhere that lightbox are aware of the problem & are working on it ?
I remember when warhawk was new there were around 600 servers to choose from ,
I cant help wondering how they have so many basic issues after 3 years development .
At least they are working on it
Now if there were just a way to patch the noobs & campers...
@ Wii, Oh for sure mate, tonight is ON! Raven will be there too :Thumbs:
@ Gunzz, all true mate.
Lol CAMPERS! :Stupid: It really does my head in & poor Raven has to live with the state that these noobs put me in :Lol: ARRGGGHHHHH! (there I go again).
Hope to see you join in the festivities tonight too gunnz :smileywink:
What servers do you guys join? NA ones that say full connection? Or EU ones, hoping for aussies? Sometimes I join a game that supposedly has full connection but I am lagging by about 2 secs...... I find the only way I can play properly is to host my own server......
I could have written that exact post KRO :smileywink:
QD do sometimes throw up the "ANZ QUICK AND THE DEAD" server. It's much the same as the Wednesday night server but no password required.
If it hasn't been done I'm gonna suggest everyone on this forum add each other to their friends lists. That will make it easier to get games with players from the same region.
I'll make room on my list before tonights games to start adding ANZ Starhawkers.
