Planned server downtime: 16th of april 2011

Our server is going on a little trip. During this trip it won’t be online.

After the trip it will have a new IP address. If you use our services by connecting to ‘fakkelbrigade.eu’, you shouldn’t have to do anything.

The move will happen on the night of saturday the 16th of april.


edit: all done :)

Dignitas vs TCM shoutcast and demos

Busy night for our poor server.

Dignitas played TCM on granary and gorge, in a match that was crucial in deciding who’s going to win season 7 of the ETF2L.

FakkelBrigade provided the gameserver, relays and shoutcast Mumble, and boy, did our server get slapped around.
950 spectators and close to 400 people listening in on the shoutcast Mumble really strained our resources.

Need more CPU cores

Also, Valve decided to release a TF2 update during the match, so when the map switched, the server got updated and everyone had to restart their TF2 to get the updated client. Brilliant timing 😀

Anyway, here are the goods:


Shoutcast recordings


You’ll need 7zip to extract the STV demos.

Pros vs Pubs part II

A while ago we were the host of  a ‘pros vs pubbers’ match, today there was another one.

This time the pubbers won! You can get the STV demo’s here

Thanks to Jojipo on the Steam forums, here are the recordings of the Mumble shoutcast, recorded in OGG format, get Winamp if you can’t play OGG files already.

Our server got quite busy with serving the match, the STVs and the Mumble shoutcast 😉

CPU load

TF2 Blows blows, here’s why

They interviewed Exfane.

In the interview an intoxicated Exfane spoils some FB state secrets, for which he will be executed.

As you may have noticed, we switched servers this week. We’re now on a shiny new quad-core machine. This means we can run more servers, STV relays and (private) Mumble servers.

The ‘old’ server is with us till the end of the year, so we have an even bigger shitload of bandwidth and server capacity than usual. If you’re in need for a server, ask around in #fakkelbrigade on Quakenet or contact us on Steam.
