With the new Races and the reduced statistic display, server performance is excellent. Right now we've got 91 players logged in, and the needle's barely pushing yellow.

(I have a little desktop widget that shows me the current server load - the needle turns yellow when we go past a server load of "1" over the past 15 minutes)

(server load of "1" means that the CPU has been in constant use over the sampled period - a load of "2" would mean that the server has had to queue requests. When it's under 1, there's no lag whatsoever. When it's over 5, there's a little bit of lag. The Season One server would jump up to four with 30 players online.)

This means we can throw players at the server with impunity! Guys, remember there's loads of DP's to be made from referrals! Wink

109 players. I have never seen this many people logged on at once.

Can't... resist... temptation...

"Here's the first rate opportunity,
For newbs to join with impunity!
Say farewell to the felicity
of around 3 players per City...ty!"

Now, serious; that is quite an influx of players I've noticed.
More advertising, or just word-to-mouth?
Either way, it's good!

...right?

Beats me where they came from. But I said hi to a couple and messed around with them a little.

I was surprised to see a couple dozen Rookies on the list when I logged on that night.

A few of them will be old players who are only moving up slowly, and may have changed their names, but yeah there does seem to be quite a few new faces.

I just stated this week. Someone in another game I play mentioned it and left the address. when I followed it to take a look the front page had me laughing so hard I just had to try it.

I actually don't know how I got here. All I can think is that I must have clicked on a banner, since no-one referred me. And since you aren't doing banners, that is very improbable indeed...

Oh, he's doing some banners alright. I done seen'em on MS Paint Adventures and sometimes on Dinosaur Comics. (That might be olden days ads with Qwantz, though, it is hard to say.) He's also lured people in from banners on Girl Genius. I came from MSPA and I saw another ad for us there recently. Sessine came from Girl Genius.

The banners are handsome and steampunky, which is why I clicked mine once-upon-a-time.

Found mine on Hell Rising once, one of those Urban Dead take-offs. With Vampires, you know. It was a pretty standard one, with the hair-brained symbol. Did it change at all? Can we see the new ones?

adding to the banner spotting:

just saw it yesterday or today on sluggy freelance.

and for some unknown reason, i noticed it still mentioned something about stabbing your buddies in the back or some such nonsense; thankfully that aspect hasn't evidenced itself in this current version Twisted Evil yet.

I got here off Something Positive, to the best of my recollection. Joe's is damn savvy about advertising to the target audiences. Girl Genius? Sluggy Freelance? Mahussive readerships plus they're aimed at exactly the kind of people who would love this game. Go Joe!

I don't advertise just anywhere, y'know. Wink

MS Paint Adventures has probably been the best for us. I dig the author's sense of humour - and that leads me to believe that his readers do too, and I want players with that sort of wit.

I found the ad, for those of us who've not seen it.

It's awesome.

Ah, that is different from the one I saw on Girl Genius that led me here. It was a horizontal banner, talking about all sorts of stuff to be found in game (chainsaw-chuks and midget jokes stand out in my memory).

But yesh, you seem to be doing a great job with where you advertise, CMJ.
