    I'm not sure how this would turn out, but I feel like it would: A) Reduce overall lag, B) Cost less money to run, and C) Allow for a better concentration of players on the kept servers (more players)
    My idea is that servers 7-12 on War should be taken out, as I've noticed a significant drop in overall players, unnecessary and empty worlds, and I just feel that they need to go. Note that this is my opinion, however turned into an idea, so feel free to explain why you agree or disagree.

    We always drop in player count during the school year. When summer comes, we normally get a surge of new players, making the 7-12 servers needed. It'll be summer before you know it :wink:

    There used to be twenty servers believe it or not. During the summer, there was a point when all had over 30+ people.

    I see what you mean, and I, too have noticed some of my friends being more inactive due to school. I guess I'll just have to wait and see in the coming Summer. Thanks for clearing that up!

    I wish that would happen now! Also I may not remember all this activity during the summer because the last summer I played Brawl was in 2013, as I quit through most of 2014, so I probably don't remember much it.

    I think that we should have servers 7-12 disabled through the winter, when the activity drops considerably, but to reactivate them around mid spring, when the huge influx of players occur. I don't know much about servers, but I think that would be more cost effective than keeping six mostly unused servers around.
    man, those were the days.

    When I started playing War, all servers were full, specially the 1-5 (always full) and also the server 6-14 (yes, 14 servers before) had 30 players. I don't know what happened. With Party, when it came out, Party had 22 servers, all almost full, and war lose it members. And also in my opinion, I think War becomes rotten because of some players. They don't care about playing, sometimes some players tell me that they are better than me because they have a better KDR than us, but I don't care, they don't think that I and I think so many other player, are playing for fun, we don't care about our score, everything we want are the funny moments that we have with the friend (or something better). But some players don't understand this way.
    They don't love our way of doing play. They don't understand. That's maybe why War lose so many players who are playing other server or made their "outro".
    They just deleted 2 servers, I don't know why. And also they was a other parkour which it was really great.

    To conclude, I think War becomes rotten because of what I said.

    I don't play war anymore but I disagree. What sig said pretty much sums it up.

    Read what @jkzoom said. Why do you disagree? He did disagree partially, and told us why, providing a compromise. I want to hear your opinion :smile:

    I agree with @jkzoom and @Striker_Sly.

    If the number of players is predictable why not reduce the number of servers in the winter months and then expand for summer.

    My impression is that a cost/benefit analysis would show it would save money in the long run.

    Yes but occasionally we get bursts of new plays; if we reduce the servers by half, although the remaining servers would all have players, most servers would be full. A much easier way to reduce lag and cost is to lower the player capacity of all the servers, so servers like server 1 don't have 50+ players.

    One year ago, there were 14 servers. Now 12, and I totally agree with you.

    Just like how some food items in restaurants are only available during breakfast/lunch/dinners. Thus the server would save more money leading up to reducing the cost of donor weapons, then finally leading up to them being more giveaways where I can acquire them all MUAHAHAHA :stuck_out_tongue:

    This is why I want your opinions! It's great to come up with a compromise as well as specific examples to make this work. I think this should be implemented, and it would not just benefit other players and I, but the server as itself as well.

    I personally like to have some empty servers. It makes room if you want to 1v1 and also makes room for bug testing withough altering other players game play.

    I think that as many said that the servers 7 to 12 should be disabled during the school year but enabled during summer.
