Hey guys I am planning on launching a gaming division for a while now and I am just trying to find out what are the hottest games servers to sell. Please post your favorites games server for games you like the most.
And also do any body in here no any gaming forums?
One of the biggest games, of course, is Counter-Strike source! There will always be a demand for this game, it's huge.
Other new/good ones:
Left4Dead (Source Engine)
Team Fortress 2 (Source Engine)
Counter Strike 1.6
Day of Defeat Source
Battlefield (2, 2142, 1942)
You're best off looking for someone who knows stuff about game servers before launching, there are quite alot of things to consider.
I know how to configure alot of game servers. I just asking opions so I know which ones to start with and which ones I need to buy license for.
Thanks for the reply
If you want to host battlefield servers then you need to contact EA to be able to host Ranked servers I believe..
Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare
Call of Duty World at War
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
Counter-Strike: Source (100 Tic)
Day of Defeat
Day of Defeat: Source
Day of Defeat: Source (100 Tic)
Half-Life 2 + Mods
Red Orchestra: OSTFront 41-45
Team Fortress 2
Those would be my recommendations. Ranked servers are great but as a new player in the market you will most likely have trouble competing with those that are licensed resellers of Ranked servers.
As for purchasing 'licenses', buying the game is the first start but many of the ones I listed only require you to download a free dedicated server.
one thing I will say is make sure you invest your money in the right servers and the right transit provider. gaming traffic is far more sensative then just your average web hosting provider. heed the warning, otherwise your just loose custom due to lag.
