We're happy to announce that from today, everyone can now access a preview of the upcoming Dedicated Servers update.
We have picked 3 key Community members to head up the servers for the three core regions, the admins can then recruit additional admins if they wish to help them run a great server during the preview period.
The Servers will be running on Multiplay's ClanForge Software, you can read up on all the features provided here
Count - Wiki Overlord, and awesome evangelist of all things community! He will be admining all the servers located in the US Region
Marisa Krisiame - Providing us with laughter with the 'easy-listening' music, and much super clever technical talk. MK will be admining all the server in the Australian region.
Old Flads - It's not often you see Olly without his Camera, he has been an awesome member of our Community, he will be admining the London Server.
Throughout the duration of the Preview you will only be able to play on the Servers provided in the Server Browser
How they choose to run the servers during this preview period is completely up to them, and we look forward to what they come up with!
