Gamespy Server Lists Are Offline


So you may have noticed that, for the better part of a week now, the Gamespy client is no longer compiling lists of servers, by type or otherwise. Your History and Favorites tabs will still work, but Gamespy is no longer populating the client's Internet tab thanks to a recent buy-out by GLU Mobile.

Story here:

http://social.bioware.com/forum/Neverwinter-Nights-1/NwN-1-General-Discussion-Forum-No-Spoilers-Allowed/GameSpy-server-list-gone-AWOL-15186804-1.html

http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/199/index/15193845


So unfortunately, that makes the task of finding a new NWN server very daunting; every existing NWN server out there can expect to take a hit in their numbers of new players as a result. So it's up to us to get the word of Andrune out there. And since this development has spurred revival in multi-server NWN communities, this could be Andrune's chance to get in on the ground floor with several of them.


Our options:

Neverwinter Nights Server Lists:
http://nwnserverlists.boards.net/

Neverwinter Connections:
http://www.neverwinterconnections.com/

The NWN Community Status and Info topic:
http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/189/index/7476445/1


And supposedly, the Xfire client is still populating Neverwinter Nights' server lists (though without separating them by type or genre). I haven't reinstalled Xfire and tried it myself, but anyone who does have Xfire may want to check it out and get back with us.


So what can we do to get Andrune seen and heard? What can we do to help?

I didn't notice at all! But then I don't server hop a lot. Its another nail in the coffin for the NWN community, but its proven resilient thus far...

And I agree, I think its a great opportunity for us to put ourselves out there. As of now we've got our thread on the NWN Persistant World forums... at a bare minimum I think we need to keep 'that' going: Andrune's NWN Forum Thread
I guess the next step would be setting up on these other sites. If anyone wants to lend a hand with screenshots, making nice and pretty compilations of our key features... it'd be vastly appreciated.

I was also thinking we could throw together more one-off pnp style adventures to appeal to the NWN Connections crowd. Maybe set a date like 'This saturday we're running such and such an adventure: escaping from a faerie prince's mines, hunting a dangerous witch as librarians, etc. so roll up a character and play our quest for a couple hours.'

Once I get out of finals (they've been especially brutal this year) I intend to start a weekly or bi weekly plot with Temperance Isle that might be a good advertising point.

Okay, I added a write-up and listing request to the NWN Community Status and Info topic here. Let me know if I need to change anything about it.

I'm off to bump Andrune's NWN Forum thread now. Thanks for the heads-up, Numos. emoticon

Add image tags around "http://www.iscandar.ch/server.php?ip=173.160.202.85&port=5121&template=signature" and you're set. emoticon

Also, y'all might want to check this out:

It seems that a means to bypass Gamespy and leave GLU and their extortion attempts in the dust is already in the works and nearing completion. Stay tuned....

*casts Raise Dead*

I finally got around to looking up the list of gameworlds on the NWN Wiki, and to my dismay, Andrune isn't on it. emoticon

Does someone want to type up a page for Andrune here, or should I dig up my Wiki account and do it myself? Be advised that The Krit will probably go over the article with a fine-toothed comb, so let's make it perfect. emoticon

That is how I found out about this server. Marketing is very important now.
