    MythWorld.net Server Changes!

    Webman97
    By Webman97,

    Hello Myth of the World Members,

    We announced on our Twitter (@MythoftheWorld) on January 16th, 2019 that we have modified our game server network! We have removed our DayZ server in favor of adding three Killing Floor 2 servers! These servers are for all other gamemodes Killing Floor 2 has to offer (Endless/Versus Survival/Weekly Outbreaks).

    We also found a replacement for our Squad server! Our Insurgency: Sandstorm matchmaking server is online as of today!

    As we continue to build our infrastructure, we will make changes to our servers. Our Conan Exiles server is the only game server we host with persistent data, whereas all other game servers are either matchmaking or co-op servers that do not save player data persistently. As such, we will avoid making data-wiping changes to our Conan Exiles server without polling the community.

    Feel free to leave feedback on our Discord or sign up and post on our forums!

    Best Regards,

    Webman97


    MythWorld.net Launch!

    Hello Myth of the World Members,

    We announced on our Twitter (@MythoftheWorld) on January 10th, 2019 that we have launched our game server network! Our game server network includes servers for Conan Exiles, DayZ, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Squad and Killing Floor 2. As our community grows, we will modify these servers based on player feedback.

    Yesterday, we decided to take our Squad server offline due to server licensing rules set by Offworld Industries. The following is a statement I wrote regarding Squad’s server license system:

    Quote

    After further review of Squad's server license system that admittedly should have been done before we launched this server, we fundamentally disagree with how Offworld Industries has chosen to issue server licenses. Offworld Industries is openly admitting their player base is not capable of providing high-quality servers without supervision. The best servers I've ever played on were not supervised by the developer, they were supervised by players who truly care about the game. Offworld Industries defines this supervision in their 'Game Server Administration Guidelines'. Many of the guidelines listed force server owners to host a very specific type of server - one that does not allow a server owner to create a positive and unique culture within their own community. This kind of control and restriction does not allow room for expansion or growth, instead favoring large gaming communities who can provide the manpower Offworld Industries mandates to obtain a server license. Squad's server licensing system as of today is a win-win for the developers: they do not have to host official servers and their player base does all the work! If you dont make it on the server list this server license gives you access to, you're classified as an unreliable server and therefore an unreliable community. While we respect Offworld Industries right to enforce community guidelines within their game, this is not the right approach. As such, we've taken our Squad server offline permanently.

    We are currently looking for a replacement server in the Modern Warfare Multiplayer genre as a result of taking this server offline. In the meantime, enjoy our other servers!

    Best Regards,

    Webman97

    • Hello Myth of the World Members, This year we're excited to announce MythWorld Minecraft! Members have been expressing interest in a server with a persistent environment for quite some time. When we launched a temporary vanilla Minecraft server for members only, we had a number of you join very quickly (and stay) and we realized it was time to invest in this environment. We've put a lot of time and consideration into the type of server we'd like this to be, alongside what our members are interested in playing. We've created a new website for MythWorld Minecraft to keep the server environment separate from the community environment (we're aware Minecraft isn't the sole reason players are a part of MythWorld). If you'd like more information regarding our Minecraft server, please go to https://www.mythworld.net/. With the launch of our Minecraft server and community feedback, we've replaced MythWorld Halo Missions with a MythWorld Game Night. Additionally, we have opted to avoid focusing on any games specifically as a community from this point forward. This is another reason the MythWorld Minecraft server has a dedicated website. We have also opted to remove the #event-feed bots posting updates on the Discord due to the maintenance required when changing the schedule. Updates will be posted directly to the website as of today. Best Regards, Webman97
    • Hello Myth of the World Members, Every year I summarize our community growth and overall experiences. This year's theme: Starting Anew. 2018 and 2019 have been combined since MythWorld was created in November 2018. I began Myth of the World with a set of fundamental values I believe make a strong gaming community. However, I was alone. I began the process as usual, designing the logo, website, Discord, etc and join my empty servers to try to interact with anyone who joins. This process, over time, allowed me to begin rebuilding my vision of a gaming community: “All players should have the privilege of entering a community without judgement. We are here to play games, plain and simple.” As of the end of this year, I’ve come across many players who either agree or disagree with this idea. A few even became staff members. Before banning members who disagreed with our values, we gave them the privilege to explain their actions and beliefs in community membership. This was a year of decent player activity and calm rule enforcement. Most players who found themselves breaking the rules did not understand: “We are here to play games, plain and simple.“ We began this year outside of my comfort zone – using Discord. I was initially reluctant to use Discord, however it has proven to be the preferred platform of the community. We also launched MythWorld.net and began experimenting with game servers. We found ourselves focused on hosting Killing Floor 2 because it aligns closely with our values (despite the theme & genre). We also launched MythWorld Events this year, events that have been very successful in both encouraging player activity and documenting our experiences as a community on platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. With the release of many new games towards the end of 2019, our community decided game servers were not necessary and we agreed. Thus, we announced the shutdown of MythWorld.net. We have polled our community to determine if we're heading in the correct direction, and the answer is a resounding yes. After navigating through the initial growth process, we've found our balance. Now it's time to focus on spreading our mission. Best Regards, Webman97
    • Hello Myth of the World Members, We have decided to shut down our game server environment, MythWorld.net. While you can still get to our website using MythWorld.net, all game servers will shut down as of January 10th, 2020. After one year online, MythWorld.net has brought together many members from Killing Floor 2. However, with the release of many new games that do not require servers, we do not find it necessary to pay for and maintain our game server environment. This only impacts our Killing Floor 2 servers - our Discord and the website will remain online. Additionally, we have decided to refocus on MythWorld Game Night and MythWorld Halo Missions. More information on both MythWorld Events can be found on our calendar, here. Best Regards, Webman97
    • Hello Myth of the World Members, We are excited to introduce our first nightly event: MythWorld Nightlys! This is our solution to the question "what are we playing tonight?" Every day at 8:30am EST, we will announce the MythWorld Nightly game and any MythWorld Events for the next day. All other MythWorld Events are prioritized over MythWorld Nightlys. MythWorld Nightly games are selected based on community feedback. As such, the current MythWorld Nightly rotation only includes games listed in our #events channel on Discord. If more than five members are interested in modifying the existing rotation, we will poll the community and make adjustments to the rotation accordingly. Members are not required to participate in the MythWorld Nightly event. The purpose of this event is to answer the question "what are we playing tonight?", and allow members to plan when they'd like to participate. Best Regards, Webman97
    • Hello Myth of the World Members, After many moons of investigation regarding rubber-banding and lagspikes on our Rust server, we have come to the conclusion that the application is poorly optimized and not worth the investment of further time and resources trying to locate and fix the issue. As such, we have shut down our Rust server permanently. Best Regards, Webman97
