Update: Xonotic North America Servers - nvz - 04-13-2014

UPDATE 4/14/14:
Thank you everyone for your donations!  We have accumulated over $140.00 in donations for the server!  The dedicated server costs 69.00 a month, which means we have enough for the month of May's payment as well!  Keep up the good work Xonotic community!



As some of you may know, the Bitmissle North American servers hosted in New Jersey have been shut down in the recent weeks.  This has caused a huge impact on the North American community, especially since activity has picked up A LOT duel/pickup wise since I joined the community about a month ago.  Now, our plan is to get a dedicated server for around $69-$80 in the New York area to benefit both the Americans and Europeans.

New York is the most ideal location for our servers.  We could run probably around 3-4 servers if we wanted to if we bought a server box.  I've been doing a lot of research the past week on dedicated server hosts, and it seems like dedicated server-only hosts are the most viable option right now, considering that dedicated servers hosted by game server websites are way too expensive and only offer 8-12 core machines when we only need a single or dual core right now to run our servers.

Now, in other news, we are getting a central server(Chicago) that will be optimized for [HUB], brought to you by GlobalGamers!  The donation of the server to us is awesome news, even though we don't need a central server just yet, we will take what we will get!  

However, I have collected enough funds to pay for this month very quickly and if any of you are willing to donate our paypal account address is xono@gmail.com !

Thank you to the following players who contributed so far to this upcoming project!

NA Xonotic Update 6/3/2014 - nvz - 06-03-2014

Hey guys nvz here,

Giving you a broad update on what's been happening here in the North American vanilla community. So we have a league going on this summer! This weekend I plan to touch up http://www.galaxypugs.com so it's ready to list our weekly news and statistics as well as publish a few forum posts to let contestants post their match results! You can sign up now: http://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=4936&pid=67186#pid67186


Thanks to our Australian friend Mario, he has taken the time to set up our servers in New York multiple times. I bought a dedicated server box for 2 months from reliablesite.net which quite frankly, is a piece of fucking shit service. We had server speed ups which was the first time I've seen anything like that and someone was bandwidth mining our server to death, resulting in packet loss. I used Donations from our paypal to pay off the server and cancel our subscription there forever.

Now to solve our issue I had to get some New York servers. I went to http://www.nfoservers.com , the place I used for my galaxypugs UT3 servers, and purchased a $50 virtual quad core New York server that is providing our 4 NY servers. This is the only time I'm going to really pay out of my pocket for a server, but you can donate to this email via PayPal if you want to help pay for the server. The cost is 50 dollars a month. I plan to purchase a Chicago server as well for 20 dollars with any additional fees I get.

Please donate to xonoticusa@gmail.com via PayPal.

Anyhow we have 6 good servers via NFO:
(SMB) New York Duel
(SMB) New York Duel 2
(SMB) New York Duel 3
(SMB) New York votable
Denver Smokehouse Duel
(SMB) 1v1 San Jose

Why not just get a server from OVH.ca or for overall ping in NA https://www.versaweb.com/dedicated.php


Selling Duel/Votable servers - nvz - 06-28-2014

I'm selling my NFO virtual servers for Chicago/New York. They are both dual core and support 2 servers a piece.

They are 24.99 monthly. Please PM me or email me at dallaswalls22@gmail.com. The deadline is July 2nd, 2014 for the servers or they will go down.

UT3 is having more duel tournaments right now and I cannot afford to support Xonotic anymore with 2 vacations and school coming up Sad. I'll probably play Xonotic again hardcore once .8 arrives. Thanks for the 4-5 month ride everyone, I'll be back soon.

2014-04-30 05:18:58 spinda | no he's not
