    I guess this is directed to the admins

    I'm just wandering why the servers was changed from 72 to 62 players? Is this a Squad thing or a BigD thing, cause lately BigD has become very popular and its hard to get into servers and I think it would make such a big difference if the player total was increased like it use to be

    If I could get some feedback on this it would be great!!

    Greetings

    I believe it may have been lowered for performance? I think once we go over 62 players start notice jitters and lag. It may have been fixed in V6 with the new netcode, but I dont think it has.

    The way squad is atm with the animation system anything over 60+ players wrecks performance (tested on my pc and a few others) @Madhouse could you plz pitch in!
    I dont know if having those extra players would change the battle that much.

    Its not about the gameplay or total player for a better game, its just about getting a spot in a server

    Squad servers are a fickle beast. Yes there have been performance increases in alpha 6 but a lot of that is client side.

    Using BigD Teamspeak and getting a few guys to jump over to another server to seed yields great results and it doesn't take long for a second to fill at peak times. You can always ask an admin to change to a smaller map to begin with.
