Slots Vs. Tickrate
Hey everyone, i had heard that if you have a 32 slot 100 tick rate server that it would be better to run the server at a 66 tick. Is this true and if so what would it do to make it better?

as far as I know it really doesn't matter how many slots, it doesn't directly reflect at all on the tickrate. The only thing is running that many slots on a pc with 100 tick can cause problems just because of the performance demands. That and last I heard 100 tick can start to cause some od, random issues on some set ups. I have always just used 66 tick on my servers. It has about the same outcome (still plenty for a pub) but saves the hardware a lot.

Keep in mind I have been out of the loop for a little while. This may of changed, but i doubt it.
Thanks alot skeletor, i think i might pull the server down to 66 i mean we have a really good box but it is running more then just the src server.

Just as skeletor said,

There are sme unknown lag issues, it's weird everything seems to be running ok if you look at stats of the server but ingame you get a really weird kinda lag. This doesnt always happen but it is known to happen above 20 slots I thought... So I think best to do is run 66 tick. Then you're sure it's right Smile

It all depends wether your box can cope at the end of the day
Thanks everyone for your help, and thanks for that link jonnydog its very very informative. I noticed that my tickrate isnt even at 100 when i have it set to 100 i dont know if its because my client isnt set to 100 tick or something but im only running at 66.
