Black Ops + UKCS ?

Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

Black Ops + UKCS ?

Postby raphey on Fri Oct 22, 2010 11:09 am

I hope this fred is in the right section... but black ops is a steam game, isn't it?

I heard that there will be Dedicated Servers for Black Ops. So I've got to ask: Will there be Black Ops servers hosted by UKCS??
It would make everything so perfect! I love UKCS and I will love Black Ops :mrgreen:
Mr Frying Dutchman already told me that UKCS rather won't host Black Ops servers, if so - why??

And I'm wondering why nobody asked that before...

I guess it depends on hardware requirements and the uptake of it? We had BF:BC2 servers which died due to lack of uptake and various other bits and bobs.

I would be interested though :P

What do you mean with uptake?
I think there will be much more people who will play Black Ops. So I think a lack of players isn't given.
Certainly the hardware requirements are high, nevertheless there will be definitely more Black Ops player than BF:BC2 player.

I think the uptake will be big enough for atleast 1 server :P
Will there be a statement from the UKCS President? :mrgreen:

first off - hi, good to see new faces around here!

UKCS aims to bring the best servers to gaming community on owned (not rented) top spec servers.

The man in charge - TC - is always keen to hear suggestions regarding new ventures for UKCS. Currently - as u can see - we have a great community built around the source engine games. We have tried several none source games - BF2, BF:BC2 to name 2 - to break out further but due to lack of take up we have faltered. In some cases this is because we have been late to join the fray or where take up seems low.

I would love to see UKCS host a server for the new COD game. Especially if we can host one right from day one and be providing an excellent service to the users, but that is ultimately in the hands of TC and whether the work required to provide this service outways any benefit we would get as a community.

Hey Kev,

Do you know if TC makes it to all the sordid corners of the forums or is it worth shooting him a PM/are questions like this handled through the board mods?

Thanks :)
Yeah, UKCS has the best servers. This nice quote is just the truth "Once you've played on UKCS - you've found a second home" - it really is like that...for me since the first time I played on a UKCS server. And thats why im asking for Black Ops servers.
I really think that there will be alot of people who will play und would prefer UKCS!
I mean the UKCS Community is really really big.

Tbh I don't know if UKCS will be able to get their hands on one. I say this because I read in a magazine lately (Custom PC or http://www.bit-tech.net) that there is apparently only 1 provider of Black Ops Servers :/ which meant they couldn't even get one themselves to try the game on (the way they'd like to).

Don't quote me just yet though, going to go look it up to make sure I'm not mistaken (also if that was the case I'm sure UKCS could just get one from whoever it is supplying the servers :/).

EDIT: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/201 ... edicated/1

There's what I'm talking about, it would be possible but UKCS wouldn't be able to host their own on the current servers I believe.

Hmm, that seems to be the nail in it. UKCS own their own hardware and so dont rent servers. It seems a really stupid thing for treyarch to do. I'm willing to go so far as saying more stupid than not having dedicated servers at all. Think I will pass on black ops now...

I just don't think the team (or company maybe) behind the CoD games are with reality tbh when it comes to pleasing their customers :/

Asked Xerxes (VP) and he confirmed what I had suspected. As we would not be able to have our own physical servers it is probably not going to happen. Sorry dude!

With the fact that Black Ops dedicated servers can only be rented from a specific company, and can't be hosted on our own machinery, I highly doubt that UKCS will have any Black Ops servers.

The main reason BC2 was able to be tested was because BC2 was actually able to be hosted by us and not hosted somewhere else and just said to be run by us.

While I'm no official word, I will suggest not to get your hopes up.

Thanks for reading the thread before posting Chris...

On a more constructive note: I will hold off and see what rap this gets from gamers and critics before running to game/steam with money. I bought MW2 and regretted it. I dont even bother with the multiplayer

Does anyone know where you can get the PC version cheaply? I keep hearing about various offers but they always apply just to the (massively overpriced anyway) console versions.
