Title: Clan "LANSE"
Post by: jason on November 23, 2007, 08:41:18 AM
Lo,

Who do we have that's interested in getting this ball rolling?

Game wise, I'm not too bothered what we play - but is TF2 going to be more forgiving?

Do any of you have connections so we can get a game server up and running for "not a lot" per month. Alex's m8 still has our old box which we can use. . . .

What up/down speeds do you need to run a server.

down = more than up

up circa 2-3 meg peak

you cant run a server on the home connection, there's far more to it than just peak throughput, I think Jason meant anyone that can have the server hosted in a datacentre

ye,

home connections aren't up for it really.

We have the machine. . . . . supposedly, Alex, has this bloke got a phone number?

don't they block ports required for hosting servers on domestic connections?

Shame, thought being as im hardly ever home it might be of some use. Bethere claim that they dont block ports, i will find out when i get connected on friday.

I'll definately be up for joining you whatever, but having tried my hand with some of the other Intel guys at the Multiplay i32 Team Fortress 2 tournament, i can safely say it's NOT FORGIVING :)

I'd love either TF2 or CoD4 ...
