254 players aren't enough! I'll be disappointed until 255 players ...

While I obviously want Project Reality to continue moving forward with innovation and development, I do not think 200 player servers is a necessary step. Many of the reasons why have been touched on already, but some of you seem to forget that outside of "MMO FPS" games, the Battlefield series has some of the largest servers at 64 players. People got upset when it was announced that Bad Company 2 would not support 64 player servers. Bad Company 2 is also largely heralded as one of the best BF games to be released.

Point being, there's more important things that could be focused on instead of doubling the player count on servers. I'm currently pretty satisfied with the direction PR is going and I don't necessarily think 200 player servers are going to make anything "better" about the game.

Fast-roping would be awesome, but likely difficult to do. I'm frankly surprised I haven't seen more military shooters utilize fast-roping.

and destroy this game i'l just have to discontinue playing this and have my fingers crossed for squad since PR devs are inflexible.
as cool as that sounds, you simply dont understand how game engines and development works. 254 players are simply not nearly achievable in any kind of playable state, for something like that you would need full access to the source code, and even then it would be impossible to get stable and good gameplay out of it.

Thornehaw: If all this have been evidently true, Battlefield is a much scarier and dirtier than ever imagined. Not a conspiracy, but a possibility. If it is true, then trusting another is quite worrisome.

Actually, 254 is the max number, as was tested about 3 years ago by soppa. So you are the one who doesnt know anything about the game engine @zeno :P

Just cause the server sucessfully boots with 254 player configuration does not mean its playable. Remember the massive FPS problems, server rubberbanding and client and server crashes running with these numbers? Pepperidge farm remembers.

Well it was regularly seeded, so it was in a playable state. Although the first time he tested it, was on fallujah.

I am anyway not interested in anything larger than 200p due to the inability to create more squads.

"playable state", as in stable and actually enjoyable.

the gameplay enjoyment would drop to almost 0 after a couple of rounds when the "ermergerd, this is so cewl"-effect wears off.

- Terrible rubberbanding.
- Stability issues from hell.
- Gameplay is simply not suited for that ammount of people.
- Framerate for low/medium users
