GamingDeluxe have been in operation since 2004. It all started when Andy Wood got original Call of Duty 1.0 for Xmas from his brother in law. By mid January he was playing with a bunch of regulars and soon joined forces with them and joined their newly formed clan. The clan members were screaming out for a server and no one would step up to the plate and pay so Andy did and began administrating the server, the with IT skills he used in his day job.
Within a year CODUO had been released and the clan had one of the busiest servers in the world. The clan were spending out £200 a month on a dedicated server which performed poorly so Andy decided to invest some cash with fellow clan member Flave and get a beast of a server that could handle the popularity of the server. With that, the server was so good people would ask who hosted it, and the reply was us, and people started to ask to rent space.
Within months we had bought another server and found ourselves up to five servers in no time. By this time flave was unable to assist any more so they parted company. Andy continued alone to the point that COD4 was released and had 40 servers and had soon out grown his host who was looking to get out of the Game Providing Business and so Andy again made a leap of faith and invested into this and bought his business. With that came employees whom you should all be familiar with Steven Smith and Jon (Carnage). Since then we have grown from strength to strength and over the years taken on a lot of other GSP’s including:
