Server Maintenance Planned

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

We're currently in the process of fully integrating our gameservers from NFO over to a new dedicated host, OVH. The move to OVH is due to primarily two reasons; 1) New hardware will provide an improved performance across all SG servers; and 2) Support for specific operating systems and software for back-end work will require us to change server hosts.

 

 

These are the specs of the old machine versus the new machine:

The Technical Team has already started moving our main servers over to the first dedicated server box. Our Zombie Escape and Jailbreak servers are currently running on the new dedi while the Technical Team continues to monitor server performances. The remaining main servers, Trouble in Terrorist Town & MiniGames, will be moved over to the first dedi in the weeks to come. If all things go well, we can proceed to move the remaining SG servers over to our second dedi. All servers will also deal with an IP address change, so keep an eye out for any announcements regarding the new IPs once moved.

 

We'll post back here with any updates we have and hopefully everything will go smoothly. Thanks for your patience.

FastDL is facing issues which are rendering certain players unable to join the server if the current map hasn't been downloaded by the player. As a workaround, please view the map list for the server you're trying to join here, download the .bsp.bz2 file to C:/Program Files(x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike: Global Offensive/csgo/maps on your own computer (unzip the .bz2 and take out the .bsp), and restart your game. The technical team is aware of this and hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

 

EDIT: Should be resolved now.

We've done that with Jailbreak but it's up to the individual server managers. I threw a message in the AT chat as a reminder :] thanks for bringing it up
