Of course, I only crashed the party because the server wasn't full, and I was quite prepared to be kicked if the server did fill up.
I'm thinking of putting up my Arena Only server on a semi-regular basis, if there is interest (see my thread down the list a bit). Of course, I haven't really had a chance to 'stress test' my connection... haven't been able to draw a crowd of more than about 6-8 players any time I've put a server up, even without a password. Guess not everyone appreciates the Arena loadout like I do.
Narrows, Junction, Basin, and Outlands are probably the most popular. At the very least I love Narrows and Junction, and they tend to have the best action (other maps tend to spread everyone out more; Junction and Narrows have areas where everyone just loves to spawn, so action is always going strong)
Also, you may just want to do something else with the DM; add another mode in every so often. A DM/Assault/Zones server will get hits just because there aren't many and when a good one goes up, it fills quick.

Breaker is a nice map. The pick ups are easy to see for anyone who is not familiar with the map (unlike those that are "hidden" in the asteroids on Flotilla).
I love the new arena loadout. It's perfect for having lots of fun using the stealth skill ... though Leenail might disagree
Good games and see you all next year .
Sadly, Arena Only limits the choices to Junction, Glade and Relay (allow Arena Loadout on medium maps, pretty please, SSM?) and CTF, Zones, DM and TDM (add Arena Loadout to Assault, pretty please, SSM?).
Knowing that I can almost never finish a 45 minute match, I also limit the time to 20 minutes (10 minutes on the DM - which I throw up as a bonus... I suck at it, but it's still a lot of fun) and 2500 (Zones), 8 (CTF) or 50 (TDM).
I suppose I could also throw in bonus GK and Assault matches after the first and second go-rounds (though with this many rounds I may drop the limits to the minimums):
Junction - CTF
Relay - Zones
Glade - TDM
Bonus: Breaker - GK
Junction - TDM
Relay - CTF
Glade - Zones
Bonus: Narrows - Assault
Junction - Zones
Relay - TDM
Glade - CTF
Bonus: Relay - Arena DM
