It's become apparent to anyone who frequents the RuneQuake server Shmack (or CRMOD server) that the service has been declining slowly,and speaking for myself, Shmack is only enjoyable during non primetime hours (IE,when im supposed to be sleeping, late as fuck,past my bedtime,etc etc)


It has been two years,maybe three,that Shmack has survived off the the awesome donations given by none other than the community members of RuneQuake!

This post in no way emphasizes any CHANGES will be made, what it WILL strive to accomplish is herding all the opinions of RuneQuake players pertaining to the ping/latency issues that for most (not all,I'm not speaking out of turn for anyone) makes it barely enjoyable.

GETTING TO THE POINT AND CUTTIN THROUGH THE BULLSHIT...

The community pays for this server, and as such, if the community is paying for a EXPENSIVE shoddy ass server ($400+ a year?). Point being? We could do better,for cheaper, and I for one think it's time for this discussion to occur, BEFORE judgement day arrives again. This post is Carbon Copy @ two forums, Quakeone.com and Runecentral!

Keep in mind the price is for multiple servers, but still... I have seen multiple people report issues, which sucks. Intermittent network issues are a pain to diagnose, especially since every company in the connection chain can point fingers. I would say, keep posting about problems when they happen, and hope a pattern shows.

This fall I plan on moving the server to a cheaper package (roughly $30 a month) but a way faster machine. The location will still be in Chicago, IL.
