''What will cost you to add the new skins'' - You got yourself an answer.
Since they were added in Saturday the server basically died since 90% of people will not wait 2 or 3 minutes to download them even the boosts anymore are not that as successful as they used to be.

I have been boosting the server regularly for past 3 months to get that population going around. I am expecting to regain the rank we had in at least two months ahead.

Everything else also matters, but it's just dust in everyone's eyes. Unless we are encountering crazy compound effect.

We had something that worked reasonably good and someone got bored with it now there are new maps, new skins, and maps that repeats only about once a day. I hope you enjoying that on an empty server...

Lets put all in perspective now. Removing the 5 maps i suggested did make some old players play less. That's true. But it didn't affect the new players coming. What did affect the new players coming to our server is less boosts. From 24.2.2018 till 2.3.2018 we had 0 boosts. Then on 2.3.2018 we had 1 boost. And then watch this comedy. On 3.3.2018 we have first boost on 14:42 and the second one in 15:28. So the difference isn't even 1 hour and someone already boosted. Whoever boosted in 15:28 killed the previous boost since there should be at least 2 hours difference. And then again on the same day the-denis-bg boosts twice in 17:27 and then in 17:40 :haha: . So what i'm trying to say is that yeah some old players liked the removed maps so they play less, but it still didn't affect the new players rather that lack of boosts affected it. As for the models, i remember when i came back i had to download a lot of stuff before i connect, since we have a lot of plugins. I mean i didn't mind it. But i don't remember how much time did i download the models. Also Maverick i think you should try a thing called FDL. It makes players download server stuff in seconds, not in minutes. Bring back maps, remove models, do what you want. But i tell you, without constant boosts don't expect much better rank. Once you start going in top 1000 servers you'll need a lot of boosts since the competition gets heavier and heavier.
I wont bother myself with the server stuff from now on. Do what you think is right. I will still fulfill my role as a server admin daily.
Sincerely, Mr.Roller :)

I thought FDL was active all the time. It's something that any server tends to have if it wants more players.
2-3 minutes of downloading will turn into about 15-20 seconds if FDL gets on. It costs although, but it shouldn't be much

But we got to increase some income of players first, to get them interested, or it's no difference if we have FDL or not.

There is FDL from day one, but the thing is 95% of the people are not with Steam which means their speed at best is 10 times slower or even more inconsistent.

For example back then in the beginning I tested how fast the files are downloaded and the Max Payne skin we used to have would download for about 20 seconds while the Duke skin would take me more than 2 minutes although they after about the same size.

Of course this has been my theory since ever for reason why the are less players, but usually is a bunch of small thing together who knows.
Because I know from me if a server took me more than 30s to join I just cancel it, maybe it does matter if player is already played in it, but still.

I am thinking of adding the removed (de_rats1337, de_farmrush, awp_snowfun2) maps in hope to, increase the people playing on the server. I pretty well know their disadvantages and problems for balance and well being of the players as it was well discussed in the previous topic, but we will need to deal with it.
