I want to add that in addition to changing the address for ZombieHeLL 1 and 2, the two servers were moved to a new host. The servers are now located in Canada on the East coast. Previously the servers were located in Dallas Texas.
Players inCentral and Eastern US/Canada should now get a better latency and ping. Players on the West coast will see a slight increase in latency and ping.
In addition to the move, Tom and I basically rebuild the two servers from scratch. We made many small updates and improvements. We added new zombies, renamed many of the days, and balanced the zombies, including their health, speed and number for each day. We did this to speed up the game play on ZombieHeLL 2 and thus allow players to level up a bit faster.
We are also using a new Fast Download (FastDL) server for even faster download of game content.
You guys will also notice improved MOTDs. We reworked most of the MOTDs and made them a bit more modern. Few small changes were made to the Server Rules and Game rules for clarity. We updated our website to reflect all the changes to the servers and the MOTDs.
Regarding our in-game store... it will be offline for the next 3-5 weeks as we figure out what to do. Our css store is not csgo compatible. We want a csgo store that also works in css. We want one store instead of two. We are looking at our options.
If we switch to a new store, I will mostly likely return all the credits for bought items to the players who purchased those items, and then transfer their credits to the new store so they can rebuy their items. VIP will likely also be transferred.
Over the next 6 weeks we will be making more improvements to all the servers. We may need to tweak zh1 and zh2 as we get feedback. After that I think we'll focus on csgo.
In the mean time, I'd like to get your feedback on the changes we've made.
