How to populate a CoD4 server?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question...

Im not going to put the IP here, unless you guys ask for it...and I'm not going to advertise the server here, but help me to promote my server.

I got a CoD4 clan going, with a few of my friends, we have 4 people so far, but I'm working on recruiting more.. We play stock TDM and S&D. Server has Nerfed Heli too...

What are the best way to populate the server? I'm new to the clan leadership and I just need some help on getting started.. Any suggestions?

Due to alot of people asking to PM IPs to them, I decided to post it here.
The IP is: 12.25.65.65:28960
Thanks for playing with us!!!

Play on it. A lot.

Not much else really...not many people choose to go to empty servers.

remember that crowd=crowd, people will normally just want to join an all ready populated server rather than wait for one to fill up (even if it's a really good one).

So try asking people which maps they like, and set it to them when it is empty. On my old cod2 server whenever we set it to carentan/dawnville the server would fill up within a few rounds, it's supprising how many people sort by map name.

Or you could try adding lots of friends on xfire and try to get people playing by the ''friends of friends playing'' bit, i used to find alot of good servers that way.

The 3rd way, and probobly the most obvious is to try and run it well, 90% of servers i have found have been through friends + clanmates fav servers, but i have found a few good ones by chance.

good luck anyway, boyd.

Its hard. There are so many other servers to compete against.

Im the same way, I look for servers with 12-15 in them. Get over 20 on and its just die die die , for me anyway . this seems like a pretty good way, telling us on here. We (OTHG) have our own server too but its hard to get outsiders on there. I find quite a few through x-fire too. PM me your ip , I would jump in there.
