    3:30 AM Very late. First night. Lots sleeping.

    There is no queue on Teek atm. This is good. It means the queue will settle down over time.
    I think In just days with hitting minor queue during peek times.

    I did a quick census on Tormax...

    There are 130 players in Crushbone alone on Teek.

    There are 93 players total on Tormax.

    Tormax will be an extremely low pop server. It is real and not just conjecture at this point.

    I knew it would be... I didnt think it would be that bad.

    All the census ive done so far it looks like Teek will have 10-15 times the amount of players.

    Just want you to know what you are getting into there. Its not too late to reroll.

    --------------Edit------------

    Just took another census on Tormax since the one I took was very late at night.

    Its 05/27/2024 Sunday, 5:30pm EST of the 1st weekend. Prime game time.

    229 characters, total...

    On the other hand... if you all just made ONE Tormax Guild.. you could just have the server to yourself lol.

    I'm not trying to dogpile on tormax people. I'm not one of those people laughing at it failing, or hoping it does. Options are good for people that want different servers.

    Prime time day 1 and teek is exploding, tormax is literally "low" population. This is just a warning to anyone who thought of playing tormax. Just beware of what you're signing up for.

    Exactly, the use case for Tormax is if you want a private server for you and your friend group to play non-raid content on that Darkpaw will pay to host for you

    Anyone remember the old Trakanon server?

    Tormax is Trakanon 2.0.

    If you are just trying to do non-raid content for you and your friend group, there are actually TLPs with much better rulesets to do it on.

    And since they are all beyond Kunark, the Kunark start on Tormax wouldn't even be a deciding factor in the decision. :)

    Complete waste of resources for the Tormax server.

    Interesting. I wonder how they will kill this server?

    So much gaslighting and concern trolling going on. Its amazing how the candyland free loot people on teek still feel the need to troll to make themselves feel better

    Why would anyone play on Tormax?

    It's literally Oakwynd but worse, 25% less AA exp, 25% less loot, 15% longer respawn timers.....
  14. Mezrah Augur

    Well I played on it yesterday because I could not log in to Teek. I expect to only play on it when I can't log on to Teek. They should at least allowed all boxing on there.
  15. Lejaun Augur

    And Oakwynd has a lot more people. We had a full raid (few boxes) and even had some OW racing.

    It's just that many predicted that a Phinny clone will be lackluster. Delusionally thinking it will be a success because Aradune was, completely ignoring the very unique circumstances around time of release of Aradune, was astounding to say the least.

    This is not about Teek. This is about an absolutely terrible recycled ruleset, which has failed worse than thought. It is the first TLP to not have queues, since queues were a thing. Even you can agree that doesn't augur well at all right, putting aside your rage against free trade for a moment?

    Tomax didn't interest me because it's just more of the same. I was hoping that each 25th Anniversary TLP server would have been something that was unique and imaginative. Out of the two servers Teek is the closest to that high standard.

    When film studios release "anniversary" editions of classic films, they often go the extra mile to include deleted scene, interviews with the cast, the making of featurettes, etc. The idea is to make an offering so compelling that its irresistible to the consumer.
