Gamespy uh oh

Ok I am currently trying to figure out if what I have heard is true, so at the moment this is speculation on the part of the gamespy community that I have spoken to.

Apparently, the people who own gamespy did an audit. It showed a lot of games were published on gamespy that had not renowned their fee's. So far SWAT 4 and NWN have been mentioned. (Some saying that the people who now own the rights to NWN are the people who made Bualders Gate Enhanced, but Im not 100% sure that is correct)

What this boils down to, if it is true, and I am in no way saying it is, but if it ~is~ you will no longer see lists of servers when logging into gamespy via NWN.

You will still be able to use favorites, History and direct connect.

But thats the main problem, ~you~ (the existing player base) can still log in.
New players will no longer see server lists and therefore will need to find other means of finding a PW to play on. A google search of nwn role play server doesnt see Avlis mentioned in the first few pages. I havent checked our current standing on NWN Vault.

No need to spread DOOOOOOOOOM and panic yet, it could be a temporary thing, but if it isnt, it may have just gotten harder to attract new players.

ANyway Im sure someone knowledgeable can shed more light on the whole thing,

Not sure about the whole 'someone knowledgeable shedding some light' part, but when I logged in earlier today I didn't see any servers. I had to use the history tab to find the Avlis servers. Might be something to this.

renowned is now opwned and patented by me. No one else may use this typo without consulting me and getting prior consent.

For those who do not speak Blondy, it quite obviously means renewed. Derr. :mrgreen:

I noticed this as well the other day. Did some digging around and found a few threads on social.bioware.com explaining the situation. It seems that there are a few who are taking the time to come up with some kind of site that will list servers and what not. Maybe that's something that our community should look into? Anything to help the player base grow would definitely help out!

Anyways, since I have been pondering doing some off-world exploring on some of the other CoPaP servers and DIDN'T have them in my favorites, I took the time to find the direct connect information for each world, and their respective servers. This also helps out when the history tab shows offline servers even when they're not (which is what I was dealing with). I was unable to find a complete master server list... So if anyone is, or was, thinking about going off world but didn't know the specific information like me, here it is:


Avlis:

- Mikona - world.avlis.org:5121

- Wilderness - world.avlis.org:5122

- Elysia - world.avlis.org:5123

- Le'Or - world.avlis.org:5124

- Deglos - world.avlis.org:5125

- Ferrell - world.avlis.org:5126

- Visimontium - world.avlis.org:5129

- Underdark - world.avlis.org:5130

- M'Chek - world.avlis.org:5131


Hala:

- Hala - nwn.ysgard.org:5123

- Ysgard - nwn.ysgard.org:5124


Arkaz:

- Nuvar - server.arkaz.com:5121

- Iron - server.arkaz.com:5122

- Toloira - server.arkaz.com:5123


Tairis'nadur:

- Twin Cities - nwn.tairisnadur.com:5121


If I happened to make a mistake, or forgot to add a server, please correct it so nobody gets confused!

Enjoy!

So the list of server connections has already been posted, but here's a site that seems to have picked up the serverlist from Gamespy also.
In case anyone is interested. :)
