Free Shard Discussion / Dragon and the New Client
« Last post by ted_gress on March 23, 2019, 11:08:13 PM »
Hi,

I'm building a shard and I'd like to do a custom map using Dragon. I was wondering if anybody on here has gotten Dragon or any other map maker to work with the newest clients. Thanks,

Ted

I like the more frequent voting system. It should keep things interesting.

News / Votes now reset every week
« Last post by Red Squirrel on March 05, 2019, 11:59:38 PM »
Decided to switch things up a little and voting will now reset every week, starting Saturday night at midnight.  (technically Sunday I guess)

Also I am aware that there is lot of cheating going on and unfortunately it would be a full time job to try to police that.  I figure the community as a whole can more or less call out the cheaters as needed and rather than try to police all of this, I've chosen to take a rather neutral approach to it.  I do not encourage cheating by any means, and may randomly decide to ban cheaters at some point, but for now, I'll admit, I've been letting it go.  This may change without notice however. 

As a player looking for a shard to play on, just keep in mind that the numbers you see are not always real, it's a good idea to check out a potential shard's own forums to get an idea of traffic etc.

This seems to have subdued.  I opened a ticket with our server provider but they did not have any known issue.  If it happens again I will provide them more details so they can check their end. 

There's also a possibility that it was a DoS attack or something, but if it was, it was a pretty weak one.

We are experiencing latency on our network and currently investigating.  Your shard may appear offline when it should not, or take longer to poll and cause spikes on the graph etc.

I'd start a new topic, but it seems you still haven't done anything about this...

Interesting how shards with 4 and 8 average players can beat shards with 2-3x that many.

Assuming 1 vote per day, and a max of 15 players logged, Today is Feb 9th... (15 * 9 = 135 votes.) How does the 1st shard in screen shot get 167?
Also, every player votes every day, without missing one?

18 x 9 = 162, and they have 156. This is more realistic, but I think still a bit fudged.

Please implement your captcha, and/or other spam protection you've been thinking about for the past 2 years.

What is your server and is it still doing it?  Could have been some odd network glitch somewhere.

This afternoon, during normal operation of our shard, UO Gateway decided to start showing us as offline and stopped pinging our server.  When I look at our account it says the host name and/or port is invalid... which hasn't changed and we're still online.  We've been listed for a while and have never had an issue.

Unfortunately there is not really a real way to police this as the value comes from the server.  However if a shard is known to fudge their numbers then by all means they can be called out for it by the community and it will look bad on them.

When noticing servers that are spoofing is there any action to it? Example Ultima Online Forever doesn't have that many players especially now. I played there for 5+ years and this is their darkest times. Barely anyone at the bank, and it shows they still have 900+. I just hate when people are dishonest about their numbers, and waste your time by logging in and confused where the pop is.
