The Empire's popularity has exploded over the last few weeks. We have hit the limits for our current server. Unfortunately this means that there will be times when the server is full.Supporters will always be able to connect to the server, no matter how busy it is. Click here to learn more about becoming a supporter.Upgrading servers again is a possibility but will cost more than what we pay now. We can't afford this unless we get more supporters. Therefore the number of "free" slots the server has will always be determined by the number of supporters we have.I really hate delivering this message and I wish there was another way. I have spent the last several days straight on my computer (I even took time off work) trying to tweak every last drop of performance out of the server. I am going to continue trying to do the best I can with what we have to maximize the number of connections we can support.
