I've completely read over this part and i need to give some psychological advise here.
This last sentence blew you off.
It seems you're depressed about this whole contest thing and how it turned out.
And how much public players UT99 has in general.
Also judging on the fact you left multiple discord groups after trying 2 days to get a match with players on your map.
I say to you Sir, welcome to UT in the 21th century, please take a seat next to the bittered veterans everywhere.
My name is bitteredveteran #888, nice to meet you!
Goodluck on further travelling down the rabid hole with your ''guesswork''.
Confirmation on that won't make you happy right
It actually gives an backwards effect' on what you're trying to do, what @jackgriffin said.
Cheer up, play a game with friends you know in RL, or atleast, have the most in-common with.
''Lay down'' by the fact you cannot gather multiple people which have their own thing going on.
And approaching/gathering unknown groups and pug players in all discord groups, which only play competitive and always will.
Don't get me wrong here, I completely understand your frustrations as i had them self multiple times.
They come in phases
Then some logic kicks in, and they go away.
The day will end, like every other day, and the 333networks master-server is up for continuity of this beautiful world.
A UT99.org GameServer would still be a very nice contribution to this whole thing before the 20th birthday..
Then you have the right people together playing public on all the good stuff.
Approached all the ''upper echelons'' here.
With the right people to spread the word, my assumption will always be that UT99.org has the most power to give public a boost.
But the need and the passion has to be there.
As PUG scenes are keep getting bigger. (my biggest frustration, but you probably noticed)
Sorry for my walloftext, it felt like a good one though.
I felt attached to the subject.*PS, listen to some Joe Rogan Experience on youtube, it will make you deal with your stress in a good way
although he mentions quake a lot
