Currently I'm looking to setup a dedicated ET server on a fractal T1 with a 640k upload. What would be a good number of players for the bandwidth I'll soon have? I know on RTCW I ran an 8 player server on a 256k upload with good pings... But being ET is different for sure... any feedback or advice would be great... Any other server advice would be appreciated since I have never run an ET server before... Just trying to avoid the kinks early...

I have a 256k upload and I found that it supports 8 players very well with low pings. So with a 512k I would try a 14 to 16 player server. it shouldn't lag. Most of my 8 players range from 60 to 280 in pings... depending there computer and connection, lets not forget location. I do have the sv_rate set a 8000 though to stop the bandwidth hogs... I think default is 10000.

My server for RTCWS 1.0 is : 12.206.132.237:27960 {CFU} Crazy 8 Ball.
