Who came up with the bright idea to limit df servers to 16 players? Someone needs to get of the junk and give us some big fun rooms again.

I see no reason not to have the 32 player option. If the host can't handle that many, he will set his own limit. But, for those who can handle 20 or more, this is very dissappointing.

Please reconsider.

Why are you wasting your time in the Ubi lobby? Use Hyperlobby and forget about that POS.

IF UBI allowed more than 16 players per game, this forum would completely shut down.
When you get 12 or 13 players in there it already slows this place to a crawl!!!!!

I respect what HL is and does for the community, but really has nothing to do with the topic.

I've flown at UBI for the last 18 months because I like the interface and the people who fly there. It is just as much a home to me as HL is to you.

What I am asking for is an explanation for the 16 player limit, not gratutious HL plugging or UBI bashing. This change just seemed to come out of nowhere. Could it be because of limitations of the dedicated server? I really don't understand why they did this.

Even when TX-OC3 was running on Ubi instead of Hyperlobby I'm pretty sure they had 32 players...didn't they?

UBI.com is a pretty inefficient system from what I can tell. More Raven Shield problems were caused by UBI.com than the in-game browser system thats for sure.

So the limit probably exists because something else isn't optimized or is working properly.

This is a new problem that just arose, along with this not being able to host thing.

I guess they decided to change something when the patch came out. You know what, if its not broken don't fix it.
