When MTS started to gain a large popularity, ping started to suffer under the immense amount of players. We obviously wish to create the best possible experience, so we upgraded to a much better box (server), and it helped the lag alot, but we realize that its not been great by any means... Therefor, we started investigating means of lessening the load on the box, and the database, but it proved to be more complicated than we orignially thought. However, after many hours and many consultations with some great IT people, we have had a breakthrough, and we, the MTS staff is happy to announce that the server will be split up on 2 machines tonight at 10 pm BST . Its 2 of the strongest machines money can buy, but with less load working together, so it should hopefully have a major effect on ping. This will however, require us to wipe everyones points (again) as we transfer the data, and the ip's will change (only affects main cluster) .
We will double point gains for the next 24 hours as a compensation.
New ip's will be announced shortly
