Donated
I heard word
Of bellied sailcloth,
Creak of oars,
And gold in Eastland.
Then I smelled
A smell remembered:
Salt of spray
And black-pitched boat's keel.

Strange. It seems I can no longer use the homepage link to donate for our servers.  ???

That's weird. It works for me. What about others?

Just made a quick check in server hosting and I found out that SimRai is doing 50 slots for 5 euro.
While JestServer's cheapest option is 6 months(semi-anual) for 4.68USD a slot. So 50(slots)*4.68USD/6(months) = 39USD or 34.22euro.
That's with being on a 6 month deal instead of monthly and you still pay 4.22 euro more...

Questions:
  • Why pay more money?
  • Why not take SimRay(or many other cheaper options but requiring more manual configuration)?
  • How does the 17.6USD/month add up in this? I count 39/6(months) = 6.5USD a month.

On a sidenote, I want to mention that SimRai has better locations for hosting too.

Hi volcom and thanks for caring about the server and making a search for other options!

We considered SimRay, as they are indeed cheaper. We host our training server with them and while our experience there is decent, the servers at JestServers are better quality (in our experience). According to the maxim "Never mess with a working system" we decided to stick with Jest, because we want to maintain the quality and reliability of IG_Battlegrounds. Thanks to our recent agreement with Jest we now pay less than we did before, so while it still is more expensive than SimRay would be, it's cheaper then it was before. JestServers 50 slots paid semi-anually would be $39 per month, not $6.5. It seems you divided it by six twice. We pay $17.6 per month as part of a special deal with JestServers, so more than 50% less than the monthly price would be if paid semi-anually.

In short the answer to why we are prepared to pay more money and stay with Jest is the excellent quality and service we've had there in the last six years, coupled with the importance that a smoothly and reliably operating IG_Battlegrounds has for our clan.
