Any idea on why it went down? Did it have to do with all the 'ghost' players that were listed on the Outbreak File 1 server list but actually weren't playing? Kept seeing that list piling up.
Those ghost players are simply an artifact of File1 server that fails to remove players names if they don't actually log out properly and simply close PCSX2 or reboot the game. File2 does not do this. No idea if it is a mechanic of the original File1 server netcode or something that happened due to less than 100% replication of the server in obsrv server emulation. The KDDI server source code was never released so it is an emulation only.

The ghost players are a matter of not properly removing a player from the list of sessions stored by the server when a player disconnects. More down to the code in deciding when a player's session should be terminated and removal from the server's internal list.
