{R} Ronin Clan - Update

edited February 2012 in Clans
Good day all,


With Gheed banned from the forums, I will handle all the affairs of the Ronin Clan, and Ronin Server. It is my intention to pay for the {R} server, as I have let Gheed front the bill for too long. I greatly appreciate all he has done for the {R} community, and for the PVK community as well. He will not, however, be involved with the working of the {R} server or the {R} clan.

It is also my intention to take the {R} server in a different direction when the new patch/maps hit. I would like it to showcase the new content, thus, it will be new maps only rotation, with an old map vote option. This way, at the time of the patch launch, we will have a nice varied server selection for new and old players alike. I would like to pay homage to Cannabis Club, for being the place that started my PVK love affair, by giving them the LTS spotlight. This will not effect the outstanding relationship {R} has with The Gentlemen's Club, Slammin' Butts, or iG. In fact, I invite all servers to become members of our server ring.

I thank the community for creating a wonderful gaming experience for me, and the DEVs for making it all possible. Thank you for putting that extra special ingredient into your product: Love.

For anyone in Ronin, or future {R} members, feel free to add me to friends anytime, and if you have a suggestion or gripe, I'm all ears.

Peace! :emot-awesome:

    So this means. . .there will be an american server with stock map rotation?

    Oh, the joy I am feeling! Long live the new management!

    Suck up less, or at least make it less obvious.

    Higher player count?

    Can we exceed a full house?

    I must have forgotten to have mentioned that I still pay for everything and am very capable of continuing that trend. I built Ronin; I re-built GC to become the most popular server on the list and the way I'm feeling is that I'm either going to keep GC and wait for the patch to roll around for that new crowd or completely shut both of them down.

    The last community I let friends keep alive (protf2) backfired on me so if I'm leaving, the servers I built and payed for are leaving with me.

    He's right, I will be paying for a newly hosted server.

    Goodluck with the server, the only thing i would like to mention is that you should really take in account to treat players on your new server better, even ronin community members. I don't think i have played with you before and {R}Blaze is a very nice guy but i haven't really had great experiences on your servers and have seen quite a few times gheed yell in the microphone to both younger community members and other players. He treats people like they are shirley, caddle, mindless beings who aren't good for anything but populating his server(s) and that's pretty . . shocking. However, i see only possitive respondings to this thread so i'm pretty sure you can twist the community into something more friendly. Goodluck ;)

    If you have played with me, you know I'm a chill as back clapper. Gheed just has a different approach than I do.

    What's the new server's host information? (is it up yet? I haven't checked)
  • KazvallKazvall Members
    edited 6:55PM
    Not up yet. It will be soon. The current {R} server shuts down on Feb 2nd. I am changing hosting, as our current hosting lags like hell. There will be no lag on my server, damnit shirley!
  • edited 6:55PM
    Aren't GC and Ronin on the same host? I could confirm that I encountered a lot of lag on Ronin, but GC has always been fine so far. Maybe the provider put a heavy load on Ronin's machine (e.g. all other customers using a shirleyload of plugins etc., causing great spikes).

    I don't know, your server had a couple spikes this evening

    It may have something to do with the 24 slots, back when Ronin was having the choke issues it only started once the playercount got high
  • edited January 2012
    I didn't experience any, but maybe I was too tired to recognized lags at all.

    You can't really do anything against them. There are so many factors you can't control with a gameserver provider:
    1. Host system (load, connection, maintenance times...)
    2. Resources your provider assings to your gameserver
    3. Server plugins you use (You can't draw conclusion on how 3.) affects 1.) and 2.) in this case)

    I am going with 20 players, to provide 2 idling spots.

    Use slots that can be divided by 3. So 18, 21 and 24 will be your options. That way every team is able to have equal numbers.
    Or did you mean that the idling spots are included with the 20 player slots (creating 18 'free' slots)?

    It was about half an hour before you connected

    Well, no matter what size server, you always have idlers creating a balance discrepancy. I figure 20 people is a good number.
  • HeiHei and truly did she know the name of the Kong Senior
    edited 6:55PM
    I can't argue with that. It's not like you can't change it later if it's an issue
  • KazvallKazvall Members
    edited 6:55PM
    True that. I'm mostly concerned with server performance. I don't mind getting killed, as long as "latency" wasn't the cause.
