I see Shadow started to do some Posts regarding State of the Community but that has since stopped (Could be due to lack of time or just not caring, either or, meh). I was reading over quite a few posts and of course, they are outdated. Would love to see how he and the rest of BOSS feels now as newer games come out (and future games)about possibly expanding the community into these different games...

Myself? i would not mind chippin in for a new server and/or fees should many of you agree to start up a new game thats a bit more recent. Course, we would have to poll the forum to see but im sure many would answer and we would get a good round about estimate...

Im at work right now being counter productive and not wanting to work on translations for our software for my client :)

Any thoughts?

We thought about having a Bad Company 2 server at one point, but the way the servers are setup with that game is horrible. Hopefully Battlefield 3 will fix that (Yeah, right...).

Right now there really aren't a lot of decent games that people play online. Most of them are fad games. A game that hits with popularity then dies quickly there after. We have tried TF2 servers a few times before, but we don't have the player base in BoSS to get that going.

Agreed but we could start thinking about the future. Any game people see right now worth at least starting a discussion about a potential dedicated server?

Like Zeke said brotha, it'll be tough to find a decent game out there to make
a dedicated server for because most of the games are just a fad. They die
out way too quickly, and then you have to try and turn the server into
something else.

Also, I'm at a loss for new games that we could use. I like clinging on to my
old games too much lol.

Like I said, I have hopes that Battlefield 3 will make having your own server an easier deal. Right now you HAVE to purchase a server through a authorized host. As Shadow has said, if they'd just allow you to use your own hardware it'd be golden.

Not sure that will change as long as it's EA.

Hmmz...what about non-EA FPS? Unreal Tourney or even COD Black Ops?

All seems to have a good following with the series...

I think alot of us are possibly grabbing black ops when it drops no?
