looking for european based servers

can only find a list of 50 servers with my steam client and they are hardly ever populated

i live in the uk and the only servers i can find with people on are based in texas etc so the ping is never great

any1 know any popular euro based servers?

For whatever reason the European servers don't stay as full as the North American ones, however normally when I get home from work (I am working to some strange East Asian time zone) there is one that has a fair amount of people on it, or is full. I can't give you any specific names, as it changes depending on the day, similar to the NA ones.

That said there doesn't seem to be right now.... your best bet is to probably join a euro server during your prime time and other people will MORE THAN LIKELY join too.

That said, my highest ping to any server hosting FF is 220. Combined with the fact that conc timing is client side it's more than playable on that server. (It's a Russian one, and I have played on it atleast once).

You are lucky then, my ping in US servers is around 180 - 200 ;D

But yeah, if you join an empty server, it'll likely fill up fast.

This page gives you the top rated servers on GameTracker. Whats really nice is it even gives you the country flag so you know where the server is.

http://www.gametracker.com/search/ff/

Right now this is the most popular EU server shall we say.

I'm hosting 3 servers in the EU atm.

130.89.175.52:27015 #FF.Pickup @ quakenet - #1 2fort only - 2.1 EU

130.89.175.62:27015 #FF.Pickup @ quakenet - #3 AvD & CP - 2.1 EU
91.121.158.184:27015 #FF.Pickup @ quakenet - #4 Tiger & Anticitizen- 2.1 EU

All the servers have the following admins:
  • Rawh
  • gnaa
  • Shadow00Caster
  • Bully

If you'd like to be an admin on the server and populate it, you're welcome to drop me a pm with your nick, steamid and reason why you should be an admin

Everyone in the EU needs to walk around with a big FF logo on their head, when people ask .. tell them to goto the website.

Problem solved!

BTW, if someone actually does this and takes a picture .. I might have to come do something naughty to your pants...

Circ is probably still willing to make them, we just need a bunch of people who will buy it so we can get a discount.

How much it was? 20$? 80$? 2,000$?

Might as well revive the thread instead, we (mainly me) are going out of topic here.

haha, touche

editted

[edit]
130.89.175.53 died. The machine simply stopped and doesn't want to boot anymore. Remote power on/off didn't work.. I have no idea what's wrong with it at the current time, will have to move the the server area and inspect it myself...

back to 3 servers then :/
