New Server

We just put in an order for a new server and it will be replacing the one we have right now.

The main reason for the move is because the server we have right now, although decently powerful is with a company and datacenter that has consistent connection issues, ranging from severe packet losses to random disconnections overall. It's been happening everyday for a month now, and even though we have put in tickets with the company, they refuse to do anything about it and they've actually pinned the blame on us (they said it's a problem with my ISP) and that their end is clear. Although, everyone lags out at once, it's obviously not my internet but theirs.

Our new server will be costing us nearly double what we have been paying, but it will have more than twice the processing power, and every other spec will be the same. This new company we are working with have a very good reputation for having a very solid datacenter that focuses on stability and even includes extremely good DDoS protection, so we should be good for the long haul with this server. Believe me when I say i've been looking for weeks for a new server that isn't too expensive.

We need all the donations we can get, but don't worry - because of this new server, we will be giving RenCorner nothing but new and improved servers. Our Minecraft server is almost ready for the public, Renegade has more custom stuff coming to it, and we have the following game servers coming soon: CSS, TF2, and CoD4.

If you would like to donate (believe me, it's well needed) , please help us out by looking here: http://www.rencorner.net/forums/index.php/topic/11-how-and-why-you-should-donate/

Any and all donations goes directly to benefit the community and not anyone specifically by any means.

Good to see the back of the current server hosts, having the entire renegade and minecraft servers randomly go offline every day was a nuiscense to say the least

It's the fact that they are completely unaware of the situation that they might be in, and they would rather pin the blame on the people making the complaints rather than taking a look into their own datacenter and possibly consider the fact that they have broken hardware.

In any case, i'm working through the night to move everything over. The Marathon server has been completely transferred over and has been running for over an hour now, we've had 12 people in game for the greater part of it, and i'm pleased to say that it's running extremely stable. People from China and Europe both see their pings between 200-300, which is an improvement over the old 300-500. It's hosted in California now, and I live in New York, the complete other side of the country and I get pings between 80-100 versus the old 50-70, which still isn't bad. Anything over 250 is real noticeable so for the most part everyone should be happy.

What I notice is that my ping sort of locks onto 100 for a bit and then moves between 80-120, but stays on 100 (once it was stuck for like 30 seconds, and I wasn't lagging out - I was still getting fed information) which shows that our new datacenter has a much much more stable connection now.

We also shouldn't be having to deal with anymore downtimes lol (our old datacenter can go suck one.)

Good to hear everything went smoothly. I've played a few hours already and it was extremely fine to play. Hopefully others think so too. B)
