Promoted Map of the Month – ns2_yana

Posted by in Uncategorized, May 15, 2017

This month (May 2017) promoted map: ns2_yana

Lately we decided to give those custom maps a spotlight on our servers who have received a huge update or where the mapper is working hard to get his map done. Creating a map is a very time-consuming hobby and requires a lot of skills, especially for a game like NS2. We appreciate the work of the mappers and we love custom maps. Therefore we pick one map each month, that deserves to have the full attention from us. Promoted maps will have a high chance to be displayed in the mapvote (80% to be exact). This month promoted map: ns2_yana

Relaunching Wooza’s Hamsterwheel

Posted by in Uncategorized, May 13, 2017

It’s time to bring back Wooza’s Hamsterwheel server!

Wooza’s Hamsterwheel offers intense 16vs16 battles. Ideally for those who think 21vs21 is too much but 12vs12 on the other side too less action.
The server is also perfect for new players; Welcome and support them!
When the server is in a healthy state, we might add 10 spectator slots back. This is not sure yet.

Every succesful server requires seeders. Even tho this server was once very popular, things have changed and it needs time to bring back the server in it’s old shape.
Good times to seed Wooza’s Hamsterwheel are at 6-7pm UTC+1.

A new beginning

Posted by in Uncategorized, April 26, 2017

Good news, everyone!

With UWE’s recent decision to re-introduce the ‘ALL Tab’ in the server browser, we found the passion again to put more time into NS2. We’d like to present some community news and what we have been working on lately. We would also like to invite you to our second Gorge Plushie Event, starting this Saturday (2017-04-29). Read further down about the Event.

We also want to mention how important seeding is. Since there is the ‘ALL Tab’ again, we have the possibility to seed the server earlier. Seeders decide if the community can grow or not, and we are depended on you!

The Wooza Spirit

Posted by in Uncategorized, November 10, 2016

There are a number of notable differences between how Wooza servers are run and other hosters. This article aims to collect and explain the idea and logic behind it.

What sets us apart from other servers

For a while we tried different approaches. The well-known teamstacking problem was the one that broke most ideas. If a player goes out of line the first idea that comes to mind is to limit said players sphere if influence. Creating and enforcing rules, restricting movement/free speech and a tendendy to overachieve is the usual response. We tried a number of those and realised it doesn’t work. Read More
