It is a growing trend that MANY other communities and clans are dropping their DayZ SA servers. This is something we will have to consider as well.
For the next 30 days, I will be monitoring the situation with our DayZ SA server. As of right now, Server populations across the entire DayZ community in general is down due to lack of patch support and game breaking glitches and bugs. It seems that many people are losing interest in DayZ in waves and many servers are going down due to lack of population. We are not immune to this either.
As you may have noticed from the News post today that patch 45 has been pushed back. Which I am sure will push more people to lose interest and play other things. The Devs are trying but lacking as far as keeping everything patched such as God Mag glitches and hackers. Which is another variable in the decline we have been seeing.
Please note that these declines do happen every single time there is a long pause between patches.
All of this being said, I will say one more time. I will be monitoring the situation with our server that is caused by all of this for the next 30 days and hope for a patch within that time. As it sits right now our server does not have the peak players that we used to and consideration for removal of the server is a real possibility. (At least until DayZ SA becomes more stable.)
I know quite a few of you play on our server and I do enjoy the server as well but right now since the overall community interest is down, we may have no choice to take the server down, There is no point in continuing to own the server and pay the ungodly high price for a server if it is not maintaining its population.
We can use the server fees that we are using on 1 DayZ SA server for another server or servers of a different type that will be more enjoyed by all of our members.
I do know this is not fault on our members part and I do not blame anyone or anything other than the lack of consistent patch support for the unstable community participation.
If you have anything you want to add or discuss regarding all of this, please leave a comment. I will be happy to discuss it with all of you.
