    Free Game Servers

    Hello, my name is Justin Clutter and I own Sprocket Networks. We have been in business for 8 years and provide all types of hosting from our 4 data centers located worldwide.

    we have released our new game server hosting network and would like some people to test the servers out for us for free.

    We plan on providing this for free until everything is verified perfect on the system. We have already tested this extensively so we foresee zero issues but want real people verifying us for this.

    Once we go live, everyone who helped us test this will get slots for 50% off the retail price of $1 a slot.

    please e-mail [email protected] to find out more information and sign up.

    Happy gaming and thanks!

    We have a server that's ranked 59th (sorry, not 35th) worldwide for Counter-Strike Source. It's going offline on the 15th of this month. With your assistance we could redirect all traffic to your freely provided server and give you a decent stress test ASAP.

    The Server as mentioned is 40 slots. Counter-strike Source. 66 tic. 24/7 Deathmatch running crackhouse.

    Let me know.

    Just say the word and I'm ready to proceed. Our guys can get everything setup with provided FTP, etc.

    Maybe PM me so we don't take over your thread from other offers.

    Are your servers Windows or Linux, and what kind of specs are the boxes that the game servers will be on, would the performance be nice?

    Also, is there any kind of control panel included to make use easier, or just basic ftp?

    Thanks,
    -Bryce

    Not to sound ungrateful but are you planning on messaging us back or would you rather pass?

    No PM from you, no reply here and your email is returning an invalid user message to senders.

    My apologizes, I will PM you now. I am not sure why you can not send to me. I have had about 15 e-mails regarding this that have gone through.

    wow thanks, this is the fastest support ive ever seen, even faster than ukgame , i see on your website that you have multiple datacenters/locations, just 1 suggestion/question, why isnt there a box saying what datacenter/location you want your server hosted?

    Thank you for this ,

    Thanks, we are processing your order! Right now we only house game servers in Dallas, Texas. As we expand, we will add the check box. Thanks for the idea!

    i cannot upload dll files, i broke something, and i am trying to reinstall metamod , can you please enable this, oh yeah and btw, my ping on the scoresheet was 81, and on the real chart it was 121, but the real fps chart the fps is always higher, and that is excellent considering im in the UK, and the servers are in dallas! oh yeah, 1 feature you may want to install into TC Admin, is server reinstall, or some kind of default backup, incase you break something, you could add it to the mod installer?

    Well done! but seriously can you enable dll uploading for me

    We can not allow DLL files to be uploaded for security reasons but can re-install for you if you like. Please work this through the ticket you opened with us.

    Thanks!

    done , your support keeps on sending spam, saying "This Will Be Examined ASAP" and like i said, please put a backup into the TCA. Mods folder, or add it to the mod installtion, with another host, you could completely reinstall your server, ther was probably some TC Admin mod or something for it, i will look into this for you,
    Thanks Haynes11
