Oz Gaming Community Update
I’m sure over the past few months you guys noticed the drop in traffic to our TF2 servers. Besides everything that has expired within our community, popular gaming sources tell me there has been a significant drop in Steam portal traffic for TF2 over overall, it’s not just us. This drop in traffic has obviously affected our community. Some of this has to do with many of the new games released for the PC, PS4 and XBO. Besides that, over the past few months we’ve had a lot of changes throughout the Oz Gaming management. As for me, work has been kicking my butt. As this is a good thing for my wallet, not so much for my community. Same goes for Jab. When you add all these things together, it’s almost impossible to build a strong gaming community without our admins being active, interacting and recruiting on a daily basis. Maybe TF2 is slowly dying out? Don’t know.
You guys remember the major issue we had with GameServers.com? That forced me to relocate our TF2 servers and start new IPs, after 7 years that is never a good thing. Especially when you spend all that time advertising your IPs and the players adding them to their favorites and suddenly it’s no longer there. Not good. Then I found Fragnet.net. They were suppose to be our crutch, but 3 months later they failed us. I won’t go into detail, let’s just say their support is horrendous. Stay far away from Fragnet.net unless you don’t mind waiting 24-48 hours for someone to respond to your support tickets. I will be posting negative reviews about Fragnet.net just like I did for GameServers.com. What can I say, I don’t like it when people waste my time and money. Others will know about it.
With that being said, after 7 years I will be taking a short rest from running/managing/building/owning a gaming community. I plan on keeping www.ozgaming.net up and running until I figure out which game to go with for the next 7 years. 😉 Any ideas please post them in the comments below.
Whoever wants to use www.ozgaming.net, the forum and social media will be up and running, so feel free.
Please post your questions and ideas!
I love you guys!
