I'm an admin at TeamWarfare for SW:BF and I'll be working hard to make sure that TeamWarfare is the best place to enjoy playing Battlefront competetively for the PC.

The 8v8 ladder that is now open for signups is currently the largest competetion anywhere currently forming, with 37 teams signed up already and more signing up each day. We're still waiting on basic server admin functionality among other things before we give this game the 'competetion ready' stamp, but you can still get signed up and scope out the competetion in the meantime. We're working directly with Pandemic producers to make sure that the game gets patched to include the features necessary for competetive play, so it shouldn't be too terribly long before we open things up for challenges.

We will be opening an 8v8 league when enough teams sign up on the ladder.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

You asked for it, you got it! Star Wars Gaming League www.starwarsgamingleague.com is now officially open and is taking teams. This is THE place to play SW Battlefront competitively.

This is a league format 12 vs 12 Season. Season One will consist of 2 weeks of preseason, 8 weeks of regular season and 4 weeks of playoffs. It will culminate in crowning a champion, the proven best team in Battlefront!

There is a 32-team limit for Season One, so hurry and get signed up before the slots are filled. Star Wars Battlefront is absolutely the most exciting game to come out in a long time. It is the perfect competitive clan match game due to its emphasis on lightning fast play, tactics and teamwork.

The point of this topic is to list sites that host leagues and servers. NOT to post your clan server.

Seems this topic has been merged with this one, but you arent allowed to advertise in a new topic anyways.~Alegis

it looks like TOL and ZG may be splitting servers and last time we rented them to people for matches and practices for free.

Alegis 09-24-2004 09:44 AM

Guys (and girls?),

this is NOT TO POST YOUR PUBLIC SERVER. This is for 'companies' to post their adress where people can RENT SERVERS, and for those who host battlefront LEAGUES.

Billy10Men 09-24-2004 11:08 AM

We have been testing over the past couple of days atSpeedLinkServers a UK based server company.
You may of played in one already www.sls.me.uk

Visit our website for pricing and packages or just to spam our Forums ;)

schnooogie 09-29-2004 03:38 AM

http://www.clanservers.net hosts servers as well.

ECGN|MMmmGood 09-29-2004 04:59 AM

So people are hosting them without any admin functionality at all?


Sounds like they are out to make an easy buck more than anything.

I don't think you have a remote understanding of how the hosting business works. Do hosting companies decide which players to kick or remotely change to a specific map on whim? No, that's what the people renting the servers do. If you want to blame someone for not providing rcon/admin then you should not be looking to the server companies, which are just fulfilling needs but at the software developer. I'm pestered constatly by people that know there is no rcon but still want a server. Unfortunately most of these people wanting servers can't be helped due to the broadcast on 0.0.0.0 "oversight".

The hosting companies have to spend time setting up the servers (costs) and in fact this game is more expensive to some hosters as there is no rcon quit type of command and less to customize, so hosters get bugged more to help with changes and customers need a lot of hand holding when they think something is up with their server but in fact it's their client or the game itself. In that kind of support, this game seems to need about twice the average amount of handholding. Then we look at CPU useage and bandwidth for other costs. The bandwidth here for a 16 slot server should be around 512mbps according to the read me but I've not had anything decent for less than 1mbps. That's one expensive server for us to host. Add in the hand holding too and the constant tweaking we get asked about and your idea of a fast buck is simply ludicrous.

Jetstream 09-30-2004 11:04 PM

For some reason edit is disabled for me but a typo correction for my last post: read me is 512kbps for 16 slots.

Battlefront Blitzkrieg (A multi-clan war)

Due to the lack of multi-clan wars (not including team battles and ladders), my group, Ghost Legion, has decided to host its own Battlefront war using the services of BSC (www.battlestats.com).

A scoring system and a match-finding system has been worked out, which you can see in the rules page located to the left side.

The war starts 8th of October. No groups may join after 10th of October, at 1am.

Please, sign your clan up at battlestats if it is not already, and participate in the festivities. The more clans the more fun we all have.

Budnoweiser 10-02-2004 07:12 AM

Hello all

We @ BattleArenas are proud to announce that we will be running a ladder and league on launch aswell as currently developing an anticheat which is close to release.

We have seen the growth in the Star Wars Battlefront and will totally support it in any way we can. At this moment BattleArenas is close to beta testing stage and we are looking forward to release.

You can watch the development aswell as put forward what you would like to see in a league you want to play in, in our forum @
www.BattleArenas.com

Dont talk to me like i'm new to the business, i'm sure i've been renting game servers ( not to mention dedicated/colo ) much longer than you have.

You mentioned the exact points as to why we arent going to rent them, as well as many other providers. If you want to spend all that time hand holding customers and making sure they dont mess it up, thats your call. We use our own custom coded webpanel that has variables in the .ini files and lets them change everything without having to worry about messing something up. No hand holding necessary.

The bandwidth for this game is actually pretty light comparitively to other games with vehicles ( at least for us, we get very good bandwidth rates because we have high commits ). CPU is also very low.

That's not why we dont host it. We dont host it because of the high support cost and low-profitibility. The game simply wont scale if you have 100 customers renting servers and they are ALL asking how to change their server name.

[RNGD]Tyrant 10-02-2004 12:47 PM

I totally agree with Mr. Good.

I certainly hope all companies renting SWBF servers at this point are giving their customers full disclosure as to the limitations of the product they are buying.

Personally I think its like selling people cars and not giving them keys. Until there is a real server manager and remote control it is futile to rent a server for public use (i could somewhat understand renting a private server since you dont have to worry about kicking your friends)

GotGameServers 10-02-2004 06:29 PM

Yeah i tell them up front theres no admin tool. lol

My main thing is im being screwed because i dont want to bother with windows boxes.

There should be a class action lawsuit against lucasarts (whoever) for favoring windows hosting companies and not parallel developing a linux server along with the windows server for release.

When a new game like this comes out companies such as myself and others look to the extra attention it brings with it to get some new customers. As my other thread brought out in the vote there was a 3:1 ratio of linux vs windows GSP's (well 3 to 1 favored linux vs windows).

Im still waiting but i think this is going to go the way of the dodo along with the other co's that wont release linux servers for their games.

PAYBACK Joker 10-05-2004 11:54 AM

Yeah http://www.E-Battles.com has a clan ladder for this game, but we need people to sign up!!!

That's just ridiculous. Honestly. It's evident that this game was rushed out to release as is, they barely had time to get a dedicated server out, period - let alone a linux server as well.

Please, initiate your lawsuit, I only wish I could be there to hear the judge laugh at you while throwing your case papers out the window. Oh, maybe you could try Judge Judy. I do hope you were kidding...

They're working on a freakin linux server. It's been mentioned in numerous places. Keep your pants on.

Kurgan 10-09-2004 10:59 AM

Sounds great, though I hate to spend money on a server until the game has been patched up a bit more (and give us some rcon!).

bishopsfingered 10-21-2004 01:58 PM

Battlearenas will be taking the game under it's wing once the rcon has been sorted, we will then have the ability to integrate our anti cheat system with it and administation tools.

Keep em peeled :D

teknoledge 10-24-2004 01:44 AM

Great Ladder Site.

Alegis 10-24-2004 01:55 AM

About time you got it in the right place. Still it's pathetic to show yourself as "an outsider" saying it rox instead of plainly saying its yours, with some features. How can it be great if nothing has started yet :\

Added anyway

UniBoNGeR 11-22-2004 05:35 PM

I have one server available to rent if anyone is interested. You can test the server first. The name is DrunkenMasters-Rent-Me! and it is running on dual 2.8 p4 xeon processors, 2 gigs ddr ram, 73 gig scsi 10000 rpm hard drive. It is connected to a oc48 network located in Dallas, Tx.

Included with the server is a free teamspeak channel, unlimited bandwith, anb a private ftp site.

First $75 gets it.

I got one coming but for now the website is being worked on....So if you want to rent a battlefront 2 server. Send me an aim: Wardog1368.

Kurgan 11-06-2005 02:59 PM

And despite all this there's still only 26 servers? I guess they really dropped the ball on the server support. :(

Let's hope they don't make the same mistake with SWBF2!

FooKage 07-21-2007 10:50 AM

Another Battlefront League is Ecliptical Realms.

http://www.eclipticalrealms.com

We host BOTH Battlefront 1 and 2 events, twice monthly!

jawathehutt 07-21-2007 03:20 PM

Dude, this post is over 2 years old, almost no one still looks at the BF1 boards anymore. And besides, until vis is kicked out, its more like corrupted realms where what vis and mael say is what happens. That and they put ads to porn sites up for a bit. Not flaming you, flaming the site and most of its admins.(the ones who havent been kicked off because mael and vis disagreed with them.)

frenchsayan 08-17-2009 05:23 AM

This is a forum for francophones gamers on STAR WARS GAMES .
www.starwars-gamers.com.
There is tournament on BATTLEFRONT I 1vs1, 2vs2 and more.

*We want to rent a server in europe for BF I, if you know that , contact me please .

Bokken 08-17-2009 10:28 AM

Should I even bother explaining why nobody will ever read this?
