OC3D Dust 2 24/7 - Bring Her Back

Just been speaking to Jim tonight and I have came up with an idea.

Since the current Mill rotation has sat empty for a while Jim has took it down, so I put this idea across to him.

Why not start the Dust 2 24/7 server back up, transferring the ranks over from the old one and see what happens. As when it used to be up before the server problems it was really popular, then the server had a few problems, it was taken down for a few days and when it came back online it was laggy so I assume people removed it from there favorites.

Now me and a few others miss the server and want it back live so Jim says if I can convince him with some postive poll stats he will stick it back online.

Happy voting

I liked the dust2 server when it was active. Was also the first server I used to play on regularly and the reason why I joined these forums.

Not sure what happened but suddenly everyone stopped playing on it which I think is why it was changed to DM.

With equk on this, it used to be really popular, then died , then changed, would be good to see it up and full again. We all need to populate it , even if it means you play against a bot for a while, as most other people only join if they know there are real players on, sometimes you have to be the FIRST person to get on the server.

Usually once players are in it will stay busy. Very rarely do I play on a server with less than 4 players, it just is not as much fun.

It died after the server went down for a few days.

I vote bring it back. Once you get 1/2 people on there it fills up.

Good thread Hyper. I agree, we need somewhere to play, see regular faces, pick up new members etc

The only reason it was had to populate again is because when it did come back it seemed knackered and every1 looked elsewhere for a server. I'd do my best to get it populated, I have tried many times to get the rotation server going but without success
