Holy crap, we are surprisingly popular!

Our all-time high is now 38 connected players which we hit very early today. This also seems to be the first time we've had full 24 hours with players connected!

As we get more popular, more people will come from areas that are not close to UK or live in the US. This means latency to the dedicated server increases and might render the game unplayable for local games. The donations will help us expand to new areas with faster local servers, just tell us where you would want to see a new CnCNet dedicated server hosted if we get enough players and funding for it.

oh god! let me guess... They are all RA players :P

and CnCNet was originally for CnCTD... It is a bit ironic.

I think that CCHyper need to rush about the RA3.04 Patch :P

Currently, Germany is not a high priority target for a new server as it's very close to the UK and you should have quite good pings to it.

However, if you DEMAND a server located there and donate enough money to fund it, I don't see why not.

CnCNet Has Grown! Join Us Today!


I posted a video about it when it happened. It's great to see that it's getting attention and yes Pichorra. It is quite ironic that there's mostly RA players when it was originally for TD. :P

This is fantastic news. A game series that I grew up playing and always wanted to play online but couldn't. It's good to know that the games can still be played and are still popular. Great work guys :) Is there any interest for you guys to create a server here in Australia?

Well, it isn't free to host servers in different locations but hifi could consider but I don't think that will be anytime soon unless CnCNet gets some more donations.

I am also in Aus and would love having a CnCNet server down under.  I am also willing to make a donation to help out.

Keep up the great work guys :)

Shilor just donated enough money to kick start Australian mirror so if there is demand I need to work on the dedicated to support linking more than two servers together. That means we can't start the AU mirror until I've done that so I need to start working, lol.
