    You all know BD servers, good and popular. Now, due to some changes in my finance situation I can't afford to run 2 dedicated servers, one in EU and one in US, so I am looking for a co-owner with whom we'll split the cost of the servers. It's not cheap so probably must be an adult with a job and a salary. If you're interested please contact me at irc, #kag.leo at quakenet. If no co-owner is being found the US servers will be off in the end of the month. thanks.

    According to your ip, your US server is hosted @ reliablesite.net. You're paying at least 69$/month or more. A vps in the low end would do just fine for a 26 slot server!

    I have a vps in Germany that handles 28 players with no server lag, the server can probably handle more than that. It'll probably surprise you to know that I only pay 6$/month. The only long term problem is that I'm limited to 1 tb bandwidth.

    Code:
    1024MB RAM
    4 Shared Cores
    50GB Diskspace
    1000GB Bandwidth
    1Gbit Port Speed
    KVM/SolusVM
    1 IPv4 Address
    Overall it has a unixbench score of 1431.

    If I was you, I'd look out for some cheaper hosting. After all; kag doesn't take a lot of processing power.
    I wish you good luck with your situation.

    You are very very wrong. Shared cores ? KAG doesn't take lot of CPU ? Really ? Anyway, I am not looking for advices, thanks.

    *Btw VPS suck really bad for game servers. I am telling you this as a guy that run servers for 10 years and have tried them all.

    I would recommend hopping around to some gaming communities that might be willing to expand into some other games.

    They might be willing to pay for some if you can maintain it and pay for part of it as well.

    Just off the top of my head, Xeno Gamers and Firepowered Gaming, may be places to check.

    If you want I can also post an Ad on Facepunch... Facepunch gets a lot of traffic going through it, so it would be a good option to go with.

    Heres the links to the respective sites:

    http://www.facepunch.com/ w/ the correct category link below...

    http://facepunch.com/forumdisplay.php?f=189

    If you want to make an account yourself and make the post you have to have someone refer you who is already a member (which would be me)

    https://xenogamers.org/

    Try to message Silence, their leader, directly before you post any sort of thread.

    https://firepoweredgaming.com/forums/

    I don't know who is in charge of their community right now... so I would contact one their head admins I know

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/rannmann/ via steam. If you want, before you add him I can send him a quick pm to let him now what is up.

    I hope some of this helps.

    and P.S.

    I wouldn't mention me on Xeno Gamers at all unless directly to their leader, Silence. I left on very very bad terms except with their leader.

    Everything else is a GO on mentioning me and could help you out a bit.

    Edit: http://steamcommunity.com/id/xgsilence

    That is the xG leader's steam account.

    Well if you don't manage to find anyone you know on these forums it may be a good option. I can promise you xG and FP are safe.
