I'll need your SteamID to white-list it and add it to the AGN ID lookup DB table for the scoreboard. You can quickly find out your SteamID using services such as steamidfinder.com or steamid.co. Or if you're in our Steam group, just let me know and I can grab your SteamID for you. After that I'll PM you the password, which is also required to join.

Feel free to post it here or PM me it.

Add tf2.acegamersnetwork.com to your server favourites on Steam.

Just a question, where is this server based? Since you seem to be in the South West (like me) it may cause issues with people further afield.

AGN's server is in New Jersey, East Coast USA.

Currently the best ping times I experience is 76 - 78 ms round trip times, although some days it can be 90 or higher. It's mostly up to our ISPs though, so there's not much we can do about it other than ensure we use a wired connection (wireless is unreliable and can add a few more ms on average), good performing home network equipment and even efficient firewalls. A better internet connection may help, but TF2 doesn't use much bandwidth when playing so unless one is still on dial-up, it may not make any noticeable difference.

The good news though which may shave off several ms and make it more consistent is there're a couple new high capacity and low latency transatlantic fibre optic cables (one ready next month and one in December), greatly boosting telecommunications between Europe and North America. While ~5 ms still would make very little difference for games, every millisecond counts. Considering that actually most latency improvements over the years was caused by ISPs and other local networks improving their systems, it's likely to continue to improve dramatically in the foreseeable future.

On the other hand, 75 - 100 ms is not bad at all for playing TF2. Those in Australia, for example, are likely to experience 200 - 300 ms still....I can imagine that'd make it tough when playing as a Sniper. :SB:s But the only solution for that is to open several servers across the world, which is expensive and will result in empty servers until there are many times more players.

Will there be a message sent out to those whitelisted as to a game time and date whenever there is going to be a game? Thanks!

Yay, I am glad we have a server now! :SByay

I would like to play, but I am not out to anyone on Steam. Is the server name that shows up in the game browser in-game just "Ace Gamer Network"? If so, I might join, because it is equivocal! :SB:P

Sending mass e-mails is cumbersome and may annoy some if one is sent every time someone feels like playing on it. Instead, use the Match Organisation forum, send PMs, IMs on Steam or during major matches if sufficient players may partake a tweet will be issued on our Twitter feed. Ultimately, it'll be something a Community Manager would be responsible for. It'll be a good idea to state times you're likely to be available in this or the MO forum....if many did that it'll encourage others to hang around longer during then. Subscription to threads is also a good way of tracking topics.

In the future, our upcoming AGNIM application will allow users to broadcast alerts that they want to play.

It's called "AGN's TF2 server". It currently shares the same IP address as AGN though, although few would be curious enough to look it up.

I need a link to your Steam profile or unique name (that's searchable) so an officer can invite you.

I'll add you to the TF2 server when it's restored.

I'm going to update and test the TF2 server pretty soon, so for all those who want to join before it's formally rebooted remind me here. After I've got it working and we have at least 2 new active members added I'll set a relaunch date/time.

Currently I have the profiles of dykath and RB Louise.

I've successfully updated the TF2 server and it seems to be working. I've added the 3 new members too. :SByay

We're ready for re-launch soon....

I've added you to our TF2 server.

So there was a long match between me and dykath and it works well, as does the scoreboard. I even learnt that the DeGroot Keep map alters the chat in a humorous way to reflect medieval British times.

And dykath....at one point it seemed you were shooting through the walls at the last map while a Heavy. :SB:P
