Well a week ago bravo and papa were crashing like crazy because of all the channels in them being full.
So they just made more servers and split up the number of channels so that the servers wouldn't crash more.
Seems to me that it worked .
On the bright side, if a server crashes, there is a backup server you can easily go to, and less people will rage about it. In the worst case scenario, all PAPA or BRAVO servers crash and you are left with nothing to do for a while.
