Title: Completion
Post by: jazzking on July 08, 2014, 03:54:55 pm
It occurred to me that newerth has the power to basically force a move to SL if it was completed. By taking down the auth, clan, and server list server for XR and setting them up for SL.

I wanted to mention this because it's my hope that a conservative player base doesn't make the project less likely to be finished and polished. Of course, SL would need to be really amazing to merit a forced switch, since XR is hard to beat.

There won't be a forced switch. Even if we wanted to, which we don't. The owner of the only active server, Groentjuh, can't be forced to do anything :). Not even half his server slots! Not even an Evolution day, like he promised! Not even a chocolate cake for his dying pet iguana!

Oh I didn't realize that Groentjuh ran the general savage server besides his game servers.

Have a talk with him more often, then you'd know.

I always knew that he ran his game servers as well as the newerth.com server (not that they're different). However I had this conception  of the server which maintains the server list as belonging to a newerth admin, but in fact it's S2's. Nevertheless XR could be given a slow death by updating the client to send master server requests to the wrong place, for example to a "dummy" server telling people to install SL.
