New Server?

Postby Nad » Mar 16th, 2009 at 2:35 pm

What is it going to take to get a new server hosted? What games would people be interested in playing? I haven't touched an online game in over a year, but wouldn't mind kicking back and playing some FPS from time to time.

I still play a good bit of TF2 and have even played a bit of CSS over the past few weeks. But I think K2 has said that its gotta be free. So which one of you guys works at an ISP and can get him hosted? I gots no money right now due to my recent house purchase, but I can help with admin.

Pho is correct - I have the hardware, but unless any of ya can find me a place to put 'em free of charge AND on a decent pipe, it aint gonna happen.

Either that, or myself or one of ya wins the lottery and hooks us all up for life ;)

What would it cost to have it hosted somewhere for a year? I've never messed with this stuff before, but if it isn't too expensive to run a game server or two, I bet getting the money to front a year worth of hosting wouldn't be an issue.

You're lookin at 139/mo minimum, and thats hardware that THEY supply. To host my hardware could be less (but with a lot less bandwidth that's metered) or a lot more.

So for a full year you're lookin at 1700+ for someone elses weaker hardware.

When I used to work with The Planet, my monthly bill was around 300+ a month, but that was back when I was single and not trying to build a house.

Free or bust.

Yeah I know the feeling. I was looking at a site today that offered Dallas hosting for $.75 a slot. I know nothing about it, but 2 25 slot servers would cost under $40 a month, but that could be really crappy hosting for all I know.

That was at Game Servers

Yeah, those X amount per player slot servers are shared hosting, meaning there's several other game server processes on that same box, with limited accress. Fuck that.

I can say that I'm enjoying having the pre-existing structure of my clan for hosting CSS, and not having to mess with any back-end or admin issues for now. Even if Hardfought put servers up again, I don't know that I'd be available to help with running things, even putting in time adminning (not to mention the conflict of interest it would present).

I don't think there is currently enough demand to warrant putting up our own game server again. Times are changing and we're all old.
