At the time of this posting there are 56 active players…Having seen the player count vs. unique count, I can safely say that the actual, unique online active player base is 28. A simple equation if 56 divided by 2. No, each person does not play on two clients at the same time, however one person may run 4 clients. It’s dirty math, and pretty accurate.
To the point of this post…there are 28 active, unique players. How many staff members? 11!
Staff members: Nisti, n0m, Kleio, Mod Terror, Mod Prox, Mod Rapps, Mod Sanka, Mod Britz, Mod Umba, Uncle, Mod Vinkie.
There are more mods than usual and less players than usual…Correlation is not causation but it may be worth checking out.
We have breaking news ladies and folk. RSCRevolution has changed host and this is big for 3 reasons:
It’s no longer hosted in Canada. It’s now hosted in… Amsterdam! The #1 place where NO ONE EVER has a website hosted. What a terrible decision. They will regret this soon.
It’s with a different webhosting provider. It was with bandwith ulimited, or something like that. Now it’s with Hydra Communications Ltd. They pay between £60.00 – £75.00 a month for this beefy server.
This host change is suppose to bring a lot of people back –why? I have no idea. This reasoning is absurd to me but this is what n0m expects. News flash — changing a webhosting provider doesn’t magically make players come back unless they are pure stupid.
PS: We received a tip that Kleio pays for all hosting fees while n0m manages it.
That concludes the breaking news. Tune in next time for breaking news covering RSCRevolution.
Yes, RSCRevolution will survive — this can mean that a handful play the server, it would still be considered ‘surviving’. This will eventually happen. Someone told me it would do the opposite — it will grow past 200 players on at a given time. Sorry, that’s a fanciful hope. The last people to be playing RSCRevolution are going to be of two groups of people
A. the loyalists – those that have played for 3+ years and have devoted hundreds, if not thousands of hours into the game.
B. new players – those new players that do not know the shit storm they are able to walk into…nothing you can do to help them, but they will find out after a few months.
PS: if n0m leaves the server it will crash and burn. Mark my words.
