Unlike my other suggestion a few days ago, I feel like this one is something that [almost] EVERYONE struggles with.

Although sometimes situational, players (such as myself) can be found sitting for tens of minutes on end hitting the refresh button waiting for the 50/50 player limit to somehow flicker down to 49/50 for just a brief moment so that we can join. Now, I understand that the limit is probably there as an incentive to buy a [VIP] or [VIP+] ranking on the server (the message you get when the server is full definitely indicates that), however, it can be unfathomably frustrating to be sitting there and clicking refresh until the server has an open slot.

Since the server has grown so much since the early days of when I first joined, I feel like a 50 player maximum limit is just to little. My solution (most likely not the best) is to increase that limit to something slightly above 50 so more of us can play but somewhere under 75 to 100ish so that there can still be some incentive to buy [VIP] or [VIP+] rankings. Again, this is just a suggestion, and I'm open to comments and criticism from both staff and players alike.

Thanks!

FireEmeralds76,

The primary reason the server size is half its normal size is to improve performance so that there is less lag. Players complained often about the latency, and the best solution to help a lot of it was to reduce the server's player limit. It wasn't changed purely for creating an incentive for players to buy VIP and VIP+ for the sake of one perk (might I note that the perk you mention has been part of the ranks for quite some time already).

OK I understand now. Thanks for the clarification, Kate 🙂

I think I like the server as is. Now, the lag isn't as heavy and phat.

this 50/50 thing has gotten more people to get VIP and donate for the server

It may be annoying for me sometimes to come across "We are full on wood", but it made me enjoy the other players more.

I have to ask, though: will the player limit be increased once the server does not suffer lag anymore? I'm simply curious about it, because I remember seeing a maximum of one hundred players back in 1.7 (Not sure about 1.8 though!)

It might not, as 1.9 lag has already subsided and the server is only 50 still. I like it, as a 100 player limit will truly cause the server spill.
