    Some of you may remember our old brilliant low population server

    Whilst it wasn't the biggest failure we had (thanks serious minecraft), it was popular for a while and I'd like to see it make a come back but revitalised with the following changes.
    1. Player count changed to 24
    2. Very few current server maps as some of the best maps (such as cloud factory) were on low pop and they the servers need variety. (will probs need me to do some map testing for that eyyy) there is a lot of amazing maps that we cant have due to size.
    3. Possibly host in a more central location which provides good ping for all players (EU?)

    Theres is one more experiment change that could be applied to low pop to increase its popularity.

    Make it a semi-testing server, by this I mean add guns/models/maps/tweaks(HKSL8 NERF?) there that need some kind of community feedback before reaching the other servers, this way the community feels like they're having input and it will draw the to the server and hopefully they'll stay for the unique and interesting map rotation.

    Huge support. This gamemode is more fun with 24ish playercount because at 36 it becomes a fucking zoo with everyone trying to get their say in the voicechat. Not to mention the server load from 36 players going ham on a small map (though not as notable thanks to the server upgrade)

    Well, I'd hope we could fit as many good smaller maps as possible (trust me I've tested half the fucking workshop, theres a lot of amazing small maps), but if they go ahead with the test server side then we could potentially just add and remove a lot of maps very quickly if they're good or bad.

    Low Pop was one of my favorites back when it existed. Unfortunately, it died relatively quickly. I'd be happy to see a Low Pop server return though. To me it provides just overall a better vibe, the server feels more personal and is just more enjoyable as a whole in my opinion.

    +1 Low Population servers are always fun. Less people talking over one another and people tend to be more friendly in lower population servers.

    Although I do like 36 people, this does sound pretty cool and legit. If we can have more weapons and maps, then yea I'm down for that. +1

    Essentially I want it to be accessible to most, judging by the rating on this thread current EU is the audience for this.

    If only there was an island in between Europe and the East coast of America that had servers. That would be pretty nice.
