Default Developing New servers?

Has the game designers ever thought about opening up new servers periodically? I started the game so late and have learned a few good strategies that I would like to use them on a new server.

You could try not being such a jerk but that is probably too much to ask.

Sadly Rufus, the more you are on the forums, the more you will find this type of response.

I don't think (at least I hope not ) that his response was intended to be rude.

It is just that the older members of the forums hear the same questions or similar questions over and over and over and over that some of them lose the perception of being a "noob" to the forums and think that by answering directly, to the point, it will get you the answer that you need faster.

Yes, he could have said something to the effect that "As a matter of fact, it is something that Playa does ! If you are interested in joining the discussion, or just to see what has been discussed, why not check out this thread "link", or if not, try the search function and see if that pulls up your topic."

But again, just give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. He was really trying to help get you where you wanted to be, he just forgot his P's and Q's, I believe.

So much for the benefit of the doubt. I am with you 100% on this one Rufus.

And oh, Johnnyboy, thanks for perpetuating the stereotype that all "senior" posters are elitist jerks. Nicely done!

That post is primarily about a pay-to-play temporary server. Yes, there is also a minor suggestion for a new regular server, but the vast bulk of post material and subsequent replies are about the tournament server.

Johnnyboy thanked the above post. That is my primary reason for being surprised at the general tone of replies by him.

Most of the Senior Members are not jerks. Many do have strong opinions, but I would not presume to call any, let alone all, of them jerks. I do recall someone putting being a jerk as a reason for editing a post, though.

To give you the answer to your original question, yes, Playa games has opened up additional servers in the past for S&F. One could assume that they intend to do so with this game, based on the fact that the NA server is s1.bloodmoon.com. s2.bloodmoon.com could be coming soon.

I hope that when additional NA and European servers are scheduled to be opened, that we will be informed ahead of time. This has not been the case with the various other servers. I do recall forum staff saying that they are not given much advanced notice, either.

I am not very experienced in Playa game development history, so I have to rely on those that played S&F for info on when a server becomes “full”.

Yeah which is why in my original "defense" of Johnny, I said that "some" of the senior members forget what it was like being a noob.

In my reply to Johnny's post, I did state that he was perpetuating a stereotype that all were elitist jerks, and that is just what it is, a "stereotype" that "all" are jerks. I KNOW that isn't the case (you are a case in point ), but you can't argue that, that isn't the impression for us noobs out there.

Talk about a thread spiraling out of control. Some things to keep in mind.

It is against the rules and terms you agreed to when creating an account to be rude.

Linking to a thread that answers the question is a method of providing an answer, and is not uncommon at all with Playa Games GmbH forums.

This question has been asked before, and more than once. I don't have it in my signature yet, but I have been known to put in VERY LARGE letters that folks need to use the search function. Here are some of the places where this has been addressed. 1 2 3 4

We do not have the infraction system in place on these boards like we do on the Shakes and Fidget or SoccerStar boards. This means penalties often receive a warning and then accounts, especially if the problem is widespread or nasty, get banned. Now you all know.

To address the original post:
New servers are brought online as the current ones fill up. We moderators try to give players a 24 hour warning before this happens. On occasion, Playa makes it a surprise even to us (generally, this coordinates global launches of numerous extra servers).
