So inspired by BTR's post, I thought I'd drop a post letting you know about GetSome.

 

GetSome has a long history in the NZ Gaming community going back over 15 years. It first started off as ICONZ Arena, got renamed to GamerHub, which later merged with Clearnet Deluxe,  then another name*, then got resurrected as GetSome.

 

We have Discord, some forums no one really uses any more, and a bunch of servers colo'd at Vodafone's DC on which we offer game servers for whatever the community wants to play. Within reason, we're happy to put up whatever public game servers anyone wants, as long as you can guarantee they'll actually get used, capacity isn't really a problem for us. Only glaring exceptions are we can't offer servers without a publicly available server (e.g. newer Battlefields etc), or potential legal headaches such as emulated/unofficial servers.

 

Live list is at https://www.getsome.co.nz/servers/ but as of this post we have:

 

  • 7 Days To Die
  • Ark
  • Battlefield 3
  • Battlefield bad Company 2
  • Conan
  • Counter Strike 1.6
  • Counter Strike Source
  • Don't Starve Together
  • Factorio
  • Garry's Mod
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Minecraft
  • SCUM
  • Space Engineers
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Zombie Panic

As well as TS, Mumble, etc for those too old fashioned to use Discord ;-P

 

Discord link or http://getsome.co.nz/discord

 

 

 

The forums are pretty much dead these days, but you can find them here if you really want.

Fixed.. I forgot the widget on the website gives out short term codes on the fly.
