    Ok folks, I have some great news. We're evaluating some options that would let us run more gameservers at a lower cost! One of the things we need to do is some performance testing to see how well it holds up under load.

    Sooo... I'm thinking of throwing up a 32 man server to really put some stress on it, and running a mod server because those tend to remain well balanced at higher player counts (vsh, dodgeball, tf2ware)
    What I'd like here is to get a feel for which would be the most popular to get folks in for testing.

    I'm leaning towards VSH or tf2ware right now... though if there's an overwhelming demand for 32 man 2fort instaspawn spamfest, I'll happily entertain that as well :D

    More details will follow as I get things set up - but for now I'd like to hear what you guys think as to what I should do with this 32 man test server.

    for now I've put it up as a 32man 24/7 tf2ware. :)

    TF2Ware might be better in rotation rather the 24/7

    I'll probably change up to dodgeball or vsh soon.

    Edit: We'll see how it goes, it seems to be doing pretty well on its own right now.
