Since the release of NS 3.0 we have received a lot of feedback, most of it very encouraging. We also have reports of a possible server performance issue. We are taking this very seriously and are currently investigating it.
Server operators with information on this are encouraged to submit feedback here in the re-opened forums. With your help, we hope to resolve this and any other minor issues quickly. Until that time, we recommend a reduction of the amount of player slots on your server to reduce the impact of any possible problem.
Thanks for your patience and support!
