Renting CS:S Server

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about renting a server for my clan and don't know where to start. We have members all around the country, so how much should I spend and where should I look to get a server that will give a decent ping to everybody?

Google brings up GameServers.com as the first hit - are they a good company to go with?

They look good imho...and I believe I've been in a few of their CoD4 servers.

I used to have a BF2 server with them, as well as a CSS server. Support was a little slow, but they could have shaped up a little over time. Everything else was good. I got a vent server from them also and it was perfect. Not very much lag.

Some of the people they hire for tech support can be quite dumb however. They don't read your problem and sometimes come up with a semi-automated response of obvious fixes (that you already tried and that's why you made a support ticket). They do have some good tech support people however. If you have a serious problem, an experienced tech jumps in eventually.

Overall I would rate them 8.5/10.
