    if its dedicated and a linuix server it would be faster. also depends or your internet connection. Of course, you can always put a limit on max people that can be on your server. If it lags at 20 people, reduce it to a max of 15, and keep reducing till you get a lag you like. Also, if you want, you can boot players with high ping, i dont know if this actually will help the lag on your server, but thats what i've been told.

    good luck

    yup.. yer right...

    cept for the high ping part...

    high pingers are not the cause of server lag...

    it is the setup of the server.. it can handle only so many people with so much bandwidth...

    if a high pinger joins and lags your server you may need to reduce slots in order to make the server more stable...

    kicking high pingers is not the proper way to solve a 'lag' issue...

    reducing slots is..

    also turn off map downloads from server option as this will save you some bandwidth :)
