Help with populating server

Post by jmartg » Tue May 08, 2018 2:55 pm

Hello everyone i just bought a gaming server a day ago and have it all set up.
Everything is working fine,except i am having trouble getting the server populated.
i have been playing with a friend in it to see if that would help get players in,but they either leave immedietly or don't join at all.
here is my ip so anyone can see if anything is wrong with it: 74.91.126.17:27015
Any tips are appreciated.

Sorry about the late reply. We recently started a new server as well. It can be hard getting new players when you start out. I think your best luck might be from playing on other servers and making a lot of friends first, then eventually getting them to join your server. We were lucky having a lot of friends in the community before we started our own server, but it still took us a lot of time playing alone or with a few friends on our empty server while trying to seed it before we started to get momentum.

Another thing that seemed to helped was registering with gameME.com and gametracker.com.... as well as having our server listed on the NFO server's page.

Good luck!! I hope you're doing better with getting players!
