Where should the SpaceBug SMP be hosted – EU/US/AU ?

Hi guys,

Ok as some of you know, I am looking to change host (better price, better hardware).

At first thought I would just go with US hosting again (west coast this time), but to be 100% sure we actual do have most players from US I invite you to take part in this Poll below.

Please just mark the place you live or live closest too. I will then have a better foundation to make the right choice. It will probably stand between West Coast (phoenix az) or Amsterdam.

Where do you come from? EU/US/Asia+AU

Update 2014.01.25:

Ok I have now ordered the new server – It is located inΒ Ashburn, VA (East Coast)
Will start setting things up slowly next week – it will take a bit to get everything done correctly and there should be expected some downtime as I will make quite a few changes to support multiple worlds, but I will keep the downtime to an absolut minimum.

More info will follow when I get started on installing everything. But expect to be done with the new server and possible the new world within the first week of february.

    To be fair Europeans just have a flat out better internet connection. They usually get 50-100ms more than most Americans. If you bought a server on the East Coast, in New Jersey/New York. Which will average the pings of both UK/US gamers it would be pretty even all around. Tho AU will take a slight hit, but their internet is pretty poor unfortunately anyways. There is no way they won’t have a high ping unless its hosted in AU.

    Yep it does look like we will end up with East Coast hosting from that Poll


    Darn it. Was hoping to get a sort of improvement but ohwell, lets keep fingers crossed xD

      Will also upgrade CPU -- a notch up compared to now. And from what I see, they latency seems a tad better at the new host.
      So this upgrade should come with some improvements πŸ™‚


    And, this is a great example that shows that space doesn’t forget players πŸ˜€
    I will be looking forward to the new improvements ^_^
