FragBU Euro?

I've noticed reading through some threads that alot of Euro players would play at a FragBU event if it weren't for the bad ping.

If there was enough interest and support behind it I'd be happy to set up a server for a Euro Server (probably based in the UK). The problem is the price.

As everyone knows, servers cost money to run and maintain. I could set up a PC at home, but the upload speed of around 1mbps would probably make playing worse after a couple of players joined.

I do have a little machine at home I could look in to setting up a UT3DS server for this Friday night as a little test run, someone else might have to provide a TS server if we want to have the fun and frolics like the US guys do.

Is there enough interest for this Friday/Saturday?

the high ping doesn't bother me. when I joined last weekend, I had like 150.
the problem is my availability and the time at which it starts.
have it advertised in #fragbu or even on the front page, put some time at which it starts (so I don't have to wait 3 hours for it, to leave and have it start just after).

the idea will be having it around for 6pm GMT onwards. As I said I've got a little PC I can set up and see how it performs on my connection at home with 10 or so players.

But if we want a decent server it'll cost and I'm not sure I want to venture out for a server if there isn't the interest.

Ah, didn't even know. To start with I'm not actually going to fork out any money on the server as I already have a machine at home I can use as a server so it'll be a test run to get things going.

Looks like your not the first with a suggestion for a Europeian server: http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=175014

What we really need is an official server.

I know, I know Wowbagger rented it, my little PC here I already own and can get up and running for this weekend at no cost so it can stick around a bit.

Yea i tried to bring this to life again but only one showed up, and that was while i was afk trying to get more to join

TBH, last time half the players were from Clanbase since i had a hard time to fill the server.

If you do this Hunter ill try and be there (and maybe one or two from FCE2)

I should hopefully have it all up and running around 8pm GMT all going to plan, though it'll only have stock stuff and possible the HOLP Map Pack.

Are there any other maps I should get on there?

There's a point, are you planning on using any custom content that should be downloaded before we play?

sorry I was eating. It seems ok with 2 people. Though it might suffer if anyone actually showed up.
