Server password is going to be announced in public servers.
Announcing the password in public servers is a good idea to increase the server population on Sunday evenings. On the other hand, it will also mean that the public server will die at 19GMT. Overall, is that good or bad? It's hard to tell.

But you should also consider posting the password somewhere here, in the forum (with a bit of delay if you wish). There is always someone sitting in public server specs and asking for a password, regardless of whether it's their clan match or just a PuG match. You will make these people happy.

Furthermore, is a password even needed nowadays? The main reason to switch servers is because you want to enforce PuG rules, and you can not do that on a public server. The main reason a password was used in the past is to keep the newbs out; but we don't have a lot of newbs around anymore. If this claim is true, then the password would only split the (already small) population of players in two parts on Sunday evenings, only to keep out the 1-2 players who joined Savage for the first time that evening. There should be better ways to handle this, especially if you can get a ref password for the match server.

Groentjuh's Match #2
This seems to be a German server. You should consider using one of the UK servers (I believe those are #4 and #5) if you want to get more US players. As someone from US west coast, I get 30+ more ping on server #2, as compared to servers #4 or #5. Likewise, I get 40+ ping on public German servers (Pulse and G&G) as opposed to GK. For me this is the difference of Savage being "still playable" (<155 ping) vs. unplayable (185+ ping). I am an unlikely participant in PuG matches, so I am not advocating for myself here, but you might want to discuss this with other US players.

I totally understand your doubts and worries, furthermore the suggestions you mentioned sound good. However, I'd like to try it in my way for some weeks. If the community should be heavily splitted so that no single match is no more possible or other negative aspects should arise, I will change some settings gladly with your help  Afro

Very nice idea Telvek, good job! I agree with Gridfon with the idea that you should use UK servers for the PUG games you are organizing. Let's see how this goes! Good luck! Human Bow Just Mining Da Stone

As far as I know, Groentjuh's Match #2 and #4 are UK..
Certainly, if ping should be a problem for the most participants, we choose another server.

#1, #2 and #3 are German.
#4 and #5 are UK.

If there's a large demand for it being on a UK server, it can be done on #4 while preparations are being done for NSL 7. During the NSL I doubt there will be any pugs, and if there were I would still prefer having #4 as PUG match server, instead of #2.
