Servers Galore!
Posted by Sketch at 10/9/2003 10:46 PM PDT
With the recent release of Halo PC Dedicated Server 1.02, we've been able to vastly increase the number of Bungie dedicated servers that are in operation. Currently there are 128 instances of Halo PC up and running for your gaming pleasure! That's enough to accommodate almost 2,000 of you!

We've got 68 games in the U.S. and another 60 set up for tomorrow's European release. To find one of our servers, look for "BNG-" in the name (BNG-EU- for Europe). When we're not busy working, chances are you'll run into members of the Bungie team as we partake in a little online carnage.

Our servers are broken up into several groups depending on the gametypes being played. Here's a quick overview:

  • BNG-CTF = All CTF. All the time. Maps will vary.
  • BNG-Assault = Strictly Assault. This is the CTF variant where each team takes turns on offense trying to deliver their flag to the enemie's base. Maps will vary.
  • BNG-Slayer = Slayer, plain and simple. Kill or be killed. This will alternate between FFA and Team Slayer games.
  • BNG-Small = An assortment of gametypes geared for smaller games. The max players on these servers is only 8 and overall the map selection tends to stick with small to medium sized maps.
  • BNG-Teams = A mix of gametypes but all are team based - Team King, Team Slayer, Team Oddball, CTF, etc..
  • BNG-FFA = Are you a one man killing machine? These servers are all set up with free-for-all gametypes (Slayer, Oddball, King, etc..)

In the near future, we'll be posting a full list of our servers along with their current map cycle logs so you can find the server that's right for you. We'll also be refining and tweaking the various server offerings based on your feedback as time goes on. Be sure to check out our Halo PC gametypes database and submit your requests for custom gametypes. You can also rate submissions made by other Bnet members.

Happy Gaming!

...and if you run across BNG-Sketch in a game, go easy on me! =)
