Decreased total players of Ireland from 200 to 150, why?

Why now on the Ireland server only can be connected 150 players? Since I’ve playing this game always I do it in Ireland Oficial Server, and that server has always had capacity for 200 players. After the wipe, at the night normally have 190-200 players connected and with this decreased it’s more harder to play because it’s always full. I’ve trying to play for the last one hour, and i can’t because is full!

Someone know something about why Facepunch makes this changes?

Because official servers are for testing. The servers gather a lot of performance data and statistics for the devs, and the devs adjust servers to test various things as needed.

Welcome to alpha. You’re not playing a finished game, here’s your hard hat.
