I just wanted to make a complaint against the Australian servers.
Theyre all crappy.
I know not much can be done at the moment, but i choose to voice my complaint.
Is there no way to get any other permanent servers up?
Its a shame that gamearena have such fucked up servers, its a disgrace really
We cant even have a 1 on 1, or a proper game of CTF.
Just wondering if it was possible to get another server up perhaps?

Lol, well put Robbbb, the only problem being who will pay for the cost of a permanent aussy server or two? All i desire is that the GameArena servers be put right... or at least replaced and put out of their misery! Twisted Evil I'll fly to Aus with my sledge hammer at the ready! Surprised

Agreed, even though i'm not from aus, the game arena ctf server uses doom2.wad, and i don't get how that works.

To put it plainly it doesnt work Smile Its a waste of a server, Ive told the GA guys plenty of times with messages on their boards, IMs and emails and they still dont get it. If ya lived in Australia you would know thats typical of Telstra though... stupid and lazy

ADDED:
Just adding that Ive sent MORE emails, job requests and forum posts to GA just now... if they still dont get the hint theres something massively wrong

Nah the GA servers used to be good they just lack mantainence now. Deathz0r tried with GA and telstra as well but got no results. If I had the money I would fund a couple of xtra servers for a few of us kiwis but I hear they cost a fucking bomb.

Anyways I heard of this guy that droped out of school with no qualifications and went to work on an english oilrig. He was getting $20000 A MONTH!. Thats right $20000 A MONTH!. Then the little faggit left because he didnt like the food. Wot a fuckin wimp!. BTW this was my friends cousin and I actually know the guy, this anit no urban legend bullshit. But just imagine how many servers we could host with 2o grand!.

GameArena is a part of Bigpond so I assume Telstra pays for the servers....

Instead of bitching here ,Go bitch on the Bigpond Gameareana forums .
Did you log a request for a server change on Bigpond GA forums?
http://www.gamearena.com.au/messageboards/561/thread.php/3632372


Did you request the maps needed on Bigpond GA forums?
http://www.gamearena.com.au/files/request.php


Did you even post a thread about this issue on GA forums ?
http://www.gamearena.com.au/messageboards/561/index.php

Did you even put in a request for Internode, iinet, netspace and
3fl (pipe and waix traffic servers) to host Zdaemon servers?
http://games.internode.on.net/gameservers.php
http://games.iinet.net.au/gamestats.cgi

In fact i did try and get into those stupid forums but i could not because i dont have an email address with an ISP
Besides, This seemed like a logical place to complain
There was a thread about the servers earlier
So stop using such a smug tone

Haha OMG guys you are gonna love this.... this is basically what I asked in the job request (and also forum post and email) I sent to GA

"Zdaemon CTF server is missing its CTF PWADS and doesnt function as a CTF server... could this please be fixed.
Also requests from the community for the Zdaemon Duel server to be restored as an exclusive 1on1 server"

This is the reply from the job request...

"Job #69006 assigned by you has been amended"

Whatta joke!! The CTF server is still screwed and the duel server is still FFA, they even had the balls to tell me in future to post these kind of requests in the forums!!!

Shocked hmmm... Rightyho! outcomes the sledge hammer and lots of angry Australasian doomers with it! Twisted Evil

So... are there any other ways we can get through to these pompous admins with their heads in the sky?

Maybe sign a petition that says "GameArena servers suck!!!" or we could flood their systems with so many complaints they won't know what to do with them... but we can tell them where to put them can't we? Cool
