Wow, what a question.

Yep it's a simple enough question, one I was asking not all that long ago myself, sadly the answer gets very complicated very quickly.

I’m no expert, but here goes.

There are many problems hosting games from your home.

The biggest is bandwidth, you need lots of it for each player that joins your gameserver. A quick look on google indicates that you need something like 768K? of upload for every 10 players. We have slots for 20+20+20+24+12+24=120 slots for COD alone, not to mention the Medal of Honor server or Ventrilo.

Then you need a good top end dedicated machine for each game.

Simply put, there is no way anyone could host the quality or quantity of player slots =[E|M]= has available from a domestic connection to the internet let alone maintain the cost of the computers you’d need.

Yes you can host the game from your home and have a few friends join in, in fact this is how some of the guys test new maps etc (“Listen server” started from within the game), but this only works for a very limited number of players, after that the game becomes unplayable for everybody (to much lag).

There is also the problem of downloads of custom maps (Redirection), the machine running the game is busy eating up bandwidth just sending and receiving all the player information, they are no good at sending maps to players as well. We have a large collection of custom maps on our cod2 servers. So these need to be stored and sent out from somewhere else also, as they will for cod4 when the servers get Modded for custom maps.

If you google search for “cod4 dedicated server setup” and get a feel for a basic setup, you’ll soon see how complicated a truly professional and reliable setup like Carls is. Not to mention the additional game modifications, weapon modifications, map pack’s etc etc

Aside from the occasional problems with gameservers (they host our servers for $), it really is dam good value for money considering the hours of fun we and so many others get from it. Remember this is all up and running 24/7.

Thanks Carl, =[E|M]=MajorCarl for the endless hours and $’s you have put into all this.

And thanks also to our Co-Captain Jim, =[E|M]=Killbilly for his ongoing financial contributions and Website and Redirect hosting.

This game Rocks
