Yes, it generates a lot of traffic and games with 32+ players require more processing power than smaller servers.

How much to get server back up?


Thanks! It is much appreciated. Few others also donated, so it is enough to bring servers back. :)

They are working on it right now, it should be online shortly, but i didn't get any ETA yet. Will keep you updated, or you will see it online few minutes after it is reconnected (server auto-restores itself after reboot).

Update: after billing confirms the payment it goes to queue for reconnection.

Yes, you're right in a way...but most of people using this server are children. Not sure they can donate a lot, but you think right.
By the way, when you contribute to the life of forum, i mean when you put money into the pot, do you become an admin, and in this way, are you able to ban the cheaters or hackers???

It depends, if someone is hacking and then donates we can't give them power to ban people on top of that. :-D Generally those who donate are also serious enough to be entrusted with admin and so on.

ARES is back!

Big thanks to all who helped with this! :)


Edit: Server may reboot, but not now. I need to check few things later and see if restart is needed.

Well, aimbots can also auto-ban someone from other games if those games use anticheat of some kind, besides being banned by other admins eventually.

We did use it few times. Generally those with more advanced aimbots could still play, while many regular players experienced lag and some even had trouble setting it up properly. Something like VAC would be much better, not sure how good it is, but setup requires zero effort and it just works in the background without annoying messages and kicking legit players every few min if they didn't set some cryptic cvar properly, like PB does.

Hello. I would like to donate few dollars now and more later, but I just want ask one question before that, after I have donate, is it possible not to get kicked out. At the moment I cant connect to the server. I played 3 maps few days ago, was in 10 place, 4 place and was winning one when someone kicked me out. This happen time after time and now its getting a little bit annoying hehe :-)

I love this game and I just want to find away to be able to played a few times a week ... or more :-)

I want to donate money but I continually get autokicked for kicking ass. I have messaged you about this already, Dyn and am willing to donate a few hours of my time each day to policing the server so that aimbots aren't present...this morning I was on with three of them! Briony3, Traktor and one other. Sigh...this time, I was autobanned as "Lauren" because my ping is 45 (and everyone else was 200+) and I have a good computer that was built for COD MW 3....soooo lonely morning with out Ares FFA again.

I believe that was fixed earlier. Ping has no influence on it.

I am looking for something in max $80-$100 monthly, maybe not all 3 will come back, but Ares TDM has priority, of course. If you are not sure about donating perhaps you can wait until server is up and then decide. Of course banning is possible for those who donate and are serious about it, and are not aimbotters. I know you play legit, just saying for anyone else.

FFA is back, right now i am not sure yet how powerful this system is, so maybe we will need to get more resources. As you can see both TDM and FFA are on the same IP, in case we upgrade it will get its own IP, but for now this is pretty good solution. Will only show after servers are more populated.

Thanks, it is much appreciated! :)

In case of ban problems, let us know and we will sort it out. Using what game provides is no reason to ban.
