    Default Future Game Servers Inquiry

    Hello,

    I'm new here and I noticed that you are planning to rent out video game servers in the future (namely Source-based servers) and I have a few questions. I'm particularly interested in the Left 4 Dead 2 and Day of Defeat: Source servers. Please excuse me if the questions are a little pre-mature:

    How do you plan to price the servers? How much will it be per player slot?

    What features will come with each server? How much control do I have, especially in terms of modding and FTP access?

    P.S. It's rather weird and amusing to see my own thread get Tweeted. Haha!

    Woops! Not supposed to go to Twitter :). Well your post is famous now!

    Let me answer your questions the best I can at this time...

    1. We are looking to be 0.50 - 0.60 cents / slot for public and 0.75 - 1$ / slot private. Coarse this is subject to change when we do launch.

    2. Yes you will manage your game server though or control panel which is already in place for our voice services. As well as FTP access to manage maps, sounds, mods etc.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions!

    Ah, thank you so very much for the quick reply. I'll have to be around at game server launch when you might have great prices and features like those!

    Oh! And when do you expect to launch? I'd like to know how long I'm waiting.

    Very soon. If everything goes well, within 4-6 weeks.

    Hello again,

    How's the progress on deploying the game servers? Just wondering.

    Thank you!

    Pretty good! We have a few servers available. What game would you like us to start with?

    At the moment, I'm more interested in renting out a 10 or 12-slot Left 4 Dead 2 server. My clan lost theirs a long while back and I'm looking to help replace it for them. I'm hoping that you have a pricing promotion, though, that's why I'm here - you'll have to forgive me if I seem like a cheapskate.

    Thank you!

    P.S. Thank you very much for the fast reply. My last GSP only checked their own forums once a week - partially why I left.

    You will have FTP access to the servers as well as a control panel to control a good portion of the servers abilities as well as restarting the server etc.

    As far as pricing nothing has been set in stone yet, we are looking at LFD2 ~$1.00 / slot.

    We will announce our launch once we are fully ready to take this on. We are planning this so its not vaporware at all!
