Thanks for the help.
The game are being made in JavaScript/Unity.
I want to know, whats the perfect server for an average of 2000/3000 users online!

    It'd be difficult to make a estimate as to what you'd need -- there's simply too many variables. I can say that 2GB RAM and 2 CPU most likely wouldn't be enough given that's relatively small when it comes to more advanced setups that will require more resources.

    Most gaming backends aren't single-server setups unless it's a very very basic game. You'd be venturing in to clustered setups where your code runs on one server, or a cluster, and your DB servers run on another -- they would interact with each other, preferably over private network.

Depends entirely on your application and server configuration.

There's not a defined limit on the amount of traffic or simultaneous connections a Droplet can handle per X RAM and/or Y CPU Cores. It all really depends on your application(s) and what all you run.

A game written in NodeJS will most likely require less resources than a game server, such as one that is running Minecraft or similar (for example). The difference is hard to gauge as various games require different and varied amounts of resources depending on what they do.

Starting with 2GB should get you up and running, though beyond that, it's really hard to provide any sort of concrete limits.
