Aside from the dbd server I played in the past couple of days that has had multiple lag spikes and crashes, my ping spikes for the ladle and makes it more difficult to play. Is it just the fact there are so many spectators? I was able to play MegaFort 9v9 with less lags than Theo's today, and I'm not sure why.
Lag is a myth, its only in your brain!
More or less to the first point :P
I get in a more competitive environment, and in a tournament none the less, one is to be more critical of a server's performance. However, I feel it's worth noting that I had small, if any issues, in your server than I did in Theo's on Sunday.

Maybe it's the way I have things set up, or maybe the computer I use just sucks? I'm not sure, but regardless, I typically am a supporter of Theo's server. It is typically one of the better ones for me, but on Sunday I could not get my ping to stay stable. It was horrendous. I'm curious as to why this could have happened.

In general, it does feel that ladle servers are worse, but as I said before, I could see that being an issue in terms of the fact it's for a tournament and not just casual so I am less affected by it.
BRAWL dead. RIP.

On my server, the health measurements (CPU, RAM, IOs, etc.) were ok during the ladle.

Except for armagetron, the server was mainly idle.

My provider didn't publish anything about network issues this Sunday.

I don't know what went wrong. Maybe a link between my provider and your isp was heavily used?

That's pretty much the only thing I can't measure.

As usual, we don't have a lot of feedback. I'm not sure if you were the only one impacted or not.

I don't see any reason why ladle server would be worse.

I mean that's pretty much the same hardware, the same software (I'm still using the same version), the server is restarted every ladle, once the auths are published.

The only thing I can come up with is this: random luck. Sometimes it works better if we're lucky, sometimes it's worse. Maybe linked to the network usage by other people. Maybe everyone started to go on youtube just during ladle? Or something?



Or maybe it's something else, totally unrelated. But I don't see what it could be.

On my end I think it may have just been due to a winter storm affecting my stability to EU servers, dunno

Fun ladle, gms to WW, CTa, and Rogue Tronners. Always a pleasure to play you lot.

+1 to Kyle's NYC

Server was very stable for all of the matches we played, I had no issues on my end. CTbeard will hopefully reign supreme next ladle :stubble:

Nice stream sylla, keep it going.

Well played Rogue Tronners, congratulations. Two really close and, despite the lags, fun matches. I'm looking forward to facing you again, soon.

Forgot to comment on this. Thanks for streaming sylla+others, I definitely enjoyed the recordings and commentary. I have some suggestions, if you would have them.

Perhaps divide your commentators up, have one commentating on blue team and one on gold, that way you're not talking over other people--also it helps spread the commentary out so you're not focused on one team in particular. I enjoyed the spectator cams, but I'd like to see closer to the zones, or even some 3rd person action.

Definitely a promising start, I truly hope you will commentate the next ladle. I will gladly tune in/watch the recs.
