Most of the USA is being forced to shelter in place right now because of the Corona virus. This has caused a massive spike in traffic to the gloveworks AWP servers.
With this surge of players both west and east servers have been bursting at seams, especially on weekends.
HOW THE FUCK DO I AWP WHEN BOTH SERVERS ARE FULL???!!!
Additional AWP Server
We (me & ff) have added an additional AWP server! It’s in Dallas. This expands our reach to 3 locations total (LA, NYC & Dallas). If you live in central America you will probably get better ping to the Dallas server.
Now when both west and east servers are on trash maps you can join the central server.
New Casual Pub Server
Woh. I know. Wtf is this?
*alert* This is not an AWP server. I repeat. This is not an AWP server. *alert*
To be honest this new casual pub server is something for me personally. I have always enjoyed playing in the casual pub environment. The pace is slow, the banter is high and you can still make some sick plays for your YouTube highlight reel.
If you frequent the Valve Casual game mode as much as I do you’ll notice something. You play the same maps over and over again.
Don’t you get sick of playing the same 10 maps in CS?
YES!!!! WE HAVE BEEN PLAYING THE SAME MAPS FOR 20 FUCKIN YEARS!!
So fuck that. Let’s play on some beautiful new custom maps that give us a breathe of fresh air inside this old repetitive game.
The new casual pub server is loaded with custom maps. Just keep scrolling and you’ll see.
Dope ass maps right?…
Yes. Clearly. lul.
But it is very important that you understand this…
The casual pub server will fail and die without your help.
The average CS:GO player clicks on the Valve Casual button inside the games menu to play this game mode. This is bad. It’s bad because there’s no custom maps and no sense of a local community.
It’s up to us. We need to spread the word about our new server and invite all of our friends to come play.
Our new casual pub server is in Dallas. We chose this central location to provide the best average ping for everyone in the USA.
It’s got 24 slots. That’s 12 vs 12 when full of players.
With this pandemic everyone is being forced to stay inside. We’re all getting incredibly bored. The 2 new servers are in response to this.
I want to provide some relief to people’s boredom. Hopefully these upgrades will help.
Stay healthy. Stay safe. pz.
