What is BE?
BE is a project that Watermelon and myself have been working on for a bit under a year. BE allows you to host Zandronum servers from irc, instantly, on our dedicated server located in metro New York.
Why make BE?
BE is a solution for developers who want to test out wads, or just players who want to host a stable server without the drawbacks of a home server. Some players cannot host servers from their home, and BE lets them create a unique customized dedicated server instantly, free of charge.
Do you have any rules?
There a few rules you should follow. In order to keep our standards high, server hosts must abide by the following rules:
- Do not use bots to get your server to the top
Leave :: [BE] New York :: in the server name at all times (you do not need to add this to the hostname, as it is done automatically)
Do not abuse RCON. This includes kicking players who are not breaking any rules, or giving yourself unfair advantages when players expect a fair game (an example would be using RCON to cheat in a public AoW game).
Make sure your hostname is only in English
Under no circumstances should cheats be on UNLESS the server is private and you know for sure nobody will abuse it.
Also remember that any admin can revoke your access and shut down your servers at any time for any reason. Please do not abuse this service!
How do I host a server?
You'll need to connect to zandronum IRC <irc.zandronum.com> and join the channel #bestever. From there on, please follow the instructions on the website and start your own server.
What kind of hardware do you run on?
We run on an Intel Xeon E3 1245v2, 32GB DDR3 RAM, and a Gbit network connection. Our datacenter is located in metro New York.
If you have any suggestions or feature requests, feel free to post it in this topic. If you want to report instance of server abuse, or griefing, please PM one of the admins or message them on IRC.
