the whole idea of showing the server to the American players is working. Randoms are joining every 10 minutes and a lot of them are staying.
I also think the recognizable map is helping a lot as well.
Gonna need a lot more staff who is willing to deal with being called the nword/have deaththreats/doxing threats while dealing with mass prop spam/racism/mrdm and everything else the basic server to server troll does. Considering the new player experience isn't that great it won't take long for a first time joiner to just mass rule break
