    Hey guys,

    I was playing the first day it had a "full" release and all the servers were their own.
    I just was playing yesterday and there were some named servers and they were mostly locked.
    Is it possible to start up my own server to change loot and such?

    I'd love to hear the what the issue is. Feel free to PM me if you'd prefer to keep it private. If it's something we can remedy or work on I'd really like to get that taken care of. Thanks!

    Like i said there is no issue i'm sure they are great. The fact is they don't host near me and the cost is higher than i would get somewhere else. I also hate when a game picks one hosting company and then that hosting company charges what they feel as they don't have competition. Miscreated did the same thing and said it was temporary and then changed their minds and said they were not going to release server files and they only have one provider. I just want to know that there will be other companies able to host the game and when that might be.

    Right now the cost is barely above break even. The problem right now is how many resources the servers use and it can wildly vary. We see 5-12GB of RAM per STN server. So even if we were pricing on $5/GB of RAM which is very cheap when the servers are specced for CPU over RAM we'd only be making $5 per server at best and that's before processing fees and taxes. So realistically you wouldn't be able to get a better price somewhere else unless they were cramming people onto overloaded boxes.

    The cost for any type of data center or hosting is the not the same everywhere. I am certain if other hosting providers were available it would definitely be cheaper with out sacrificing performance and we could get smaller servers and not have to get a 30 slot server. That is the reason you can shop around and find cheaper hosts for various games some hosts just charge what they want not saying you guys do that just saying it happens.

    I think the price is more than reasonable. Is there a server licence for the game, or is it user licences; each person must purchase?
