A while back there was a second Texas server created, and the split of the population has hurt both servers population. Since its the middle of the wipe cycle there is probably not much that can be done, but when the next wipe comes it would be nice to see the servers get merged. Facepunch Texas (USA) and Facepunch Texas III both are the same size and seed, and at peak times rarely see 100 players anymore.
Populations are down across ALL servers. There will be a increase in the player base after the next wipe.
