Love the new features..

Post by Behemoth » Mon Apr 04, 2011 4:39 pm

The tracker, teamspeak server and d2 tracker are all awesome, I was wondering, would it be possible to implement a Server on demand into the DBB?
i'm pretty sure theres a server machine that has enough to be able to put up a game, maybe even two..
any chance we could see this happen?

A D3 server? I don't see why we couldn't I like the sound of that. Since I don;t have root level access I'll need to get with RC.

It would be nice if Jeff250 could figure out how to make a D2 server on demand :)

While the DBB server pool probably has the spare CPU and bandwidth to run a couple D3 dedicated servers on demand, one key consideration is: location. It should be fine for west coast players, but I'm not sure it would be as good for east coast or midwest players. At any rate I would recommend finding additional servers beyond just the DBB ones in different geographic locations (possibly including some overseas ones) in order to really complete such a server on demand system.

I agree, is there any people who would mind sharing their server capabilities to tie in with this system?

What do you mean? D2 is peer-to-peer. You can think of this as everyone being their own server.
