as it isn't being used for CP maps - some of us kind of guessed that wouldn't work anyway - could it go back to being the same as #1 but maybe with no class limits (enables more craziness if needed )?  there have been a few evenings now where a few people have been waiting to join and giving up to go to one of the dodgy ones *shudder*.  when there are 8 or so people waiting I would be happy to swap and start to bolster up #2

I agree that this would be worth trying, as #2 seems to be empty most of the time. It can be frustrating trying to get onto #1 at peak times, the "connect 87.98.254.85:27015" minigame gets old pretty fast!  Shocked

I'd also be willing to join server 2 to try to fill it up a bit, announcements might help with this too when #1 is already full.

That seems like a nice idea. I don't know if this is possible, but if so -> could it be done that upon trying to join THG 1 when full, you would be automatically redirected to THG 2 - as to help the server to fill up a bit?

While it doesn't help with actually connecting any faster, you can set an alias up so you don't have to remember the IP and port - e.g. I just type thg and it does the same thing.  All you need to do is add the line
alias thg "connect 87.98.254.85:27015"
to your <steam>\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\cfg\autoexec.cfg file (create a blank file if it doesn't exist already).

irc redirects aren't allowed if your want the server to stay on valve's quick play lists.

If the idea is to make #2 a server that can be used to play on while waiting to get on to #1, it might be an idea to limit it to just a small rotation of the more popular PL maps. The server used to fill up reasonably well with just randoms when it used to be like that.

Yeah i agree it does seem to help keep it full due to the quick join starting with PL, its another reason why they are played so much more "poor cp maps"  Laughing

Thanks Derfy, I tried to bind it a while ago but it doesn't work from the menu, didn't think to simply use the alias in the console  Rolling Eyes   Smile Thanks!  Very Happy

Also you don't have to remember the IP. As the website and TF2 server are hosted on the same box you can simply use 'connect triggerhappygamers.com' and it'll resolve to the correct IP, and will use the default port of 27015.
