When you heard that COD : Black Ops is going to have Dedicated servers you most likely thought "ZOMG NO MOAR LAGZ N WAITIN WHEN HOST RAGEZ" Well that is what I thought anyway.
The grass on the other side might be greener but it still has a few dog turds were going to have to deal with as Activision and Treyarch announced that GameServers.com will have a deal that makes them the exclusive dedicated server provider when the game launches. Here's what the money grabbing arse pokers at Activation said
"We are extremely excited about this unprecedented relationship with Activision to offer dedicated servers exclusively for Black Ops", said GameServers CEO David Aninowsky. "We are placing a great amount of pressure on ourselves to ensure that we exceed any and all expectations."
Well i had a quick look around the GamerServers website the average price for a server is around $15 for a 18 slot.
"if players want to run a dedicated Ranked or Unranked server on the PC, they will have to rent one through GameServers," "Treyarch will be providing a fleet of 'Day-1 Servers' (through GameServers) which will be up and operational on November 9th.
"Nobody will have to rent a dedicated server through GameServers in order to play the game," says Olin. "But for anybody who wants to run their own server, it will be run from GameServers.com."
Moral of the story? Activation and Treyarch are still a bunch of cunts and I would bet my cats life that within the week of release there was be cracked servers.
