Default TOG BF3 Servers

Hey all,

Any word on how much they are going to cost?

We still have a few months to sort this stuff out thankfully, but I'm willing to throw some coin into the pot for server hosting.

No body knows who is going to have them available for rent, or how much they will cost. Hypernia would be a safe bet, but they are never informed until just before the game is released anyway.

So essentially you will have to wait for this question to be answered in a couple of months.

A 32 slot BC2 server cost $30 USD/month from hypernia, depending on hardware and bandwidth requirements of a BF3 server it's pure speculation, as a guess I'd say a similar price for a 32 slot. Having said that we should be looking at a couple of 64 slot servers ($60-90 each in conq/rush) as a start and adding more servers if division numbers can support them.

I'd expect the DC will be appointed early so we can hit the ground running on release day.

I am guessing TOG could fill at least ten 64-slot servers on release night.

I'll be interstate on a course for work, with no internet access for the entire first week of release.

I couldn't get anything out of gamerservers either. They "claim" to have no info.

Nope, a 32 player BF3 server uses 80% of a core where the same size BFBC2 server uses 40% on the same hardware

We too where very surprised and we raised it with the developers the second we saw the results in the Alpha trials, but its something they said they where expecting

Everyone's hoping DICE will be able to reduce the usage, but we can't price servers based on hopes as that would mean overloading machines and hence poor performance and we just don't do that.

As they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here's what we're seeing
