    Possible 3rd SoV Server

    Post  drzdeano on Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:58 pm

    There has been a few guys expressing interest in funding a 3rd server for SoV.

    If we can discuss the options we want, we will choose maybe 5 and then have a poll.
    However most of the people who have offered the cash do have the scrim practice in mind. So softcore is almost a requirement. We dont like it but we need it.

    So far the requests have been

    Softcore
    Rush
    T/S DM

    Request it would be named as a SoV clan server, meaning we can do whatever we want with it. Not run it as a public sever. ie Change settings/maps/nuke it randomly keep everyone on their toes. Shut it down for training.

    So given that, i am suggesting a mixed mode softcore server. Any and all possible game types.

    Upside
    Rush!!!! > More fun
    SDM!!!!! > More fun
    Softcore training. > Scrim team needs it.
    Different server will attract more/variety of players(possible members) > More members

    Downsides
    If we do get another server we will need to upgrade our procon layer thing > More cash
    We have another server to populate > More time
    We have another server to admin > More time
    Reduces number of sov members in each server > Less fun Sad


    P.S. I will have no part in this if anyone even remotely suggests anything to do with tehran highway. Its my way or the highway. har har

    Was aiming for 48 slots.

    Server cost is
    48 slots per month
    =================================================================================
    By The Slot Game Servers - Battlefield 3
    » Game Slot Count: PUBLIC - 48 Slots ($1.49/Slot USD) $71.52 USD

    Subtotal: $38.14 USD (Price for today until > 01/05/2012)

    25% One Time Discount: $9.54 USD
    Total Due Today: $28.61 USD

    Total Recurring: $71.52 USD Monthly
    =================================================================================




    48 slots per 3 months
    =================================================================================
    By The Slot Game Servers - Battlefield 3
    » Game Slot Count: PUBLIC - 48 Slots ($1.49/Slot USD) * 3 months - $203.83 USD

    Subtotal: $172.47 USD (Price for today until > 01/07/2012)

    25% One Time Discount: $43.12 USD (25% off during April)
    Total Due Today: $129.35 USD

    Total Recurring: $203.83 USD Quarterly
    ===================================================================================


    The current server cost is
    $164/month
    $492/Quarter

    This would increase to
    $235/month
    $696/Quarter


    Not 100% sure about the procon but it is not much more than a dollar or two.

    What do you mean about new maps?

    dont really know anything about them

    my guess is it will be like a back 2 karkand expansion.

    I dont believe anything had to be done to the servers on our end for that?
