My name is Caleb "Meta" Harrod, Lead Administrator and web developer of the Survival Operations community for DayZ (a ArmA2 Mod that has blown up very quickly). I am also a "Regular" (regulars are nominated and voted in) of UnitedOperations (an ArmA2 ACE + UO mods Mil-Sim community. Probably the most popular ArmA2 ACE communities to date as we have been featured in several articles in PC Gamer in both the website and the magazine as well as others).
Survival Operations is currently in the development stages of our community website and will be launch over the next week or so. We consider ourselves the sister community to UO! Our quick splash page can be found at http://www.survivaloperations.net
We are currently looking to get a dedicated box to host several DayZ servers on as we will be migrating the United Operations DayZ players into its own sister community (Survival Ops) and hosting our own servers on our own budgets and funding.
I am looking to get the best possible hardware and bandwidth at the best possible price.
What we are primarily looking to do is have a partial partnership with whatever company we choose to go with that will be a trade of advertising for a reduced rate on said box. (Very lucrative community where nearly everyone who owns a server is running it on their own dedicated box. Very few teams or communities purchase individual servers like in CoD/CS/etc.).
The core element of Survival Operations are comprised of military vets with combat experience and several popular youtubers within the DayZ/ArmA Community. We will be pulling in a player base from thousands of subscribers, holding monthly prize drawings, articles and interviews, video content, guides, and more.
DayZ Mod's recent popularity burst and current daily growth had sent ArmA2 & OA to the top of the Steam Sales list and is responsible for somewhere between 25-40% of all ArmA2 sales. this community continues to blow up and many communities and players are looking to get their own servers up and running but don't exactly know where to look or start.
If you have private offers, questions, comments, or would like to see the websites design and talk shop, etc. feel free to contact me at [email protected]
When posting an offer please post the Company you represent (with web address), hardware specs, bandwidth limits, regular price, and partnered price (to compare) with a contact email address.
