That's right, Funbocks is now running on new hardware!
We have a Sandy Bridge i7 quadcore with 4x 3.4GHz (3.8 in turbo), 8 threads and 16GB RAM.
Other MWLL servers are toys in comparison. Huntress runs an old dual Xeon with 2.2GHz. >grinning smiley< Even if our machine was clocked at 2.2GHz, we would still be about 30% faster. In other words, we could run 4 servers on this machine and still blow Huntress out of the water with ease!

It's hosted in a German datacenter, attached with 100mbit/s full-duplex, which should give the Europeans excellent ping. Traffic is not limited anymore either, 10TB/month oughta be enough. Also the ping will now show in the server list.

We can all thank eRkkituo for affording this beast. So make sure to mail the old Finnish bastard some love letters!

Oh, did I mention that it runs under Linux/Wine using my extensive run script? Because it totally does. Much better stability than on Windows.


I have increased the player limit to 28. If it wasn't for the clients crapping out, we could probably do 40.
Oh, and TS3 runs on this machine aswell. Much better connection guaranteed!

oi, guys... since I've been directed here by Focht I'll let you know that Funbocks is running at 32 players right now and the performance both server and client side is just awful. 30 players seemed workable but not great but 32 is spoiling the experience for a large section of the playerbase.
Probably best to go back down to 30.

Yeah, it was a test. We're going back to 30, thanks for the feedback!

Derp, I should really check these forums more often tongue sticking out smiley. Cool to hear, TY eRk Bro i7 WOW >grinning smiley< . I also have other questions: when are you guys online tongue sticking out smiley, cause playing LoL with my friend and my brother for the past month has left me spoiled. I need company. Also is everyone from CJW the admin on our server, cause people have been asking me to ban Simon Phoenix, and frankly I can't blame them. The guy is a fucking flame machine, that doesn't know when to shut up.



Human + CJW = Spit drooling retard

Don't you dare banning my favorite pet-troll!
Honestly, he's completely harmless.
Re: Funbocks updated

But he is pure fail.

I asked him how much he weighed and whats appeared to be his boggle, but he failed to get the reference.

I say we burn him as a heretic.

We should first further shame him by officially declaring him our CJW Mascot, cause he doesnt like us, dunno why....maybe we too baws...
Then we could proceed with burning him as a heretic, quineg ?

Might want to stickie that somewhere, I'll have to chuck you some cash after the megawub I'm afraid. Everything I've got now has to go towards that.
