I noticed that there must still be something wrong with my query. Velocity sumo is on there now. I'll take a look sometime later.
I finally got time to find the error. i had a + where i meant to have a *. it made it just a little over 7 hours instead of 7 days. Anyway I made it show how many times it showed up with players and the max number of players in it that it shows up with. (it does take a little bit of time to load)

Thank you for fixing the script, Kyle. When I saw your original post, I checked a few server logs, and wondered if something was wrong with the script. This will be a very useful tool for me to keep track of my server's actual usage.

No he doesn't....it's just you again who misunderstands it.

Once again, step by step :P

1) Most clans host servers
2) These servers have usually the similar settings
3) Many clans host many servers with the same settings
4) So, where's the point in having about 20 Fortress Servers when 3 EU and 3 US ones would be more than enough (so there's always a "regular" server and 2 servers for clanwars)
5) Now we still got our 14 servers ---> enough room to try something new and creative.
If this is what was intended, then I suppose I did misunderstand; my apologies. Though I still disagree somewhat with the idea.

With one of the 14 hypothetical servers, somebody needs to make a server that simply has team on team matches. Team x vs. Team y, no bases, somewhat low rubber, and the teams just fight until all the members of one of the teams has been killed. Sounds like basic fun, kinda like ffa but with teams; it may already exist and I just haven't played it, my apologies if that's the case.

Of course there used to be basic team servers. You may not realise this, but fortress and all that other related crap haven't always been in the game; they only came about 3 years ago. Unfortunately, in people's desires and efforts (still ongoing) to strip away the uniqueness of this game by shoving in all these stupid, superfluous, gimmicky game modes (just play another game!), many of those good servers got lost.

However, I will be alternating BiH as a teams-of-two server now and then. No horrid clans needed (or wanted).

And, of course, there is presently sinewav's incam-only server, "Adventures of TRON: Tron Experience," which is 3v3 teams.

I've played since summer 2005 (longer than you perhaps?) and I am aware of what existed then, and what exists now.
Back then, I played primarily in ffa servers, and also in some shooting server. Fort must have existed around then, because I recall playing it a few times (and disliking it; I'm guessing it was still in a beta state). I don't think sumo existed at the time.

Phytotron, I don't understand the aura of hate that always appears in your posts. These game modes may be "crap" to you, and people's opinions will vary; but if you want to attract more players to the game, it only makes sense that you widen the variety of playing modes. I personally find fort, sumo, and ctf delightful :D

Phytotron is like the old man who always yells at you to get off his lawn. The one that plays cards all day, doesn't leave the house, and always seems to bring up how he use to walk fifteen miles each day to school, in the snow, both ways. If you just nod your head once in a while he probably won't get aggressive

Fixed that. And Phytotron was around way before shooting servers came up, which was after Fortress. So Nelhybel loses that particular irrelevant e-nis contest.

Funny how shooting and other game modes have changed the way people play. The first year I played Armagetron, I spent the vast majority of my time playing Fortress Shootout! I dabbled around playing in other servers, but Fortress Shootout will always be my first love. One night a fortress player introduced me to Fortress, and I began to focus much more on that. Nowadays, I am not playing a lot, since I have begun to code scripts and a little C++, as well as server hosting and game server administration, and my new forums, blogs, and wiki in the works. But, I randomly play CTF, CTFS, Fortress, Sumo, Wild Fortress, Sumo, TeamSumo, and any other server that people are playing in, even if I get totally owned!
