Server quality seems to be on par with other GSPs, it’s been pretty much stable and not many notices of lag.
Pricing is a bit cheaper then what you would find for the service but not by much.
The website is good and it gets what it needs to done, bit I feel It could be better.
Over all, this is a well established host that knows that they are doing and I like it.

This server has been one of the best I’ve ever had. The support team is always willing to help, even with smallest of issues, no matter what. I’ve never had an issue with my server and I always get low pings. I recommend these guys to anyone looking for an awesome host.

The server functions perfectly, we have not had any issues with it at all. Hell, we haven’t even had anyone complain about lag yet. Top quality without the super high price of some of the other TF2 servers we’ve used in the past. The support is efficient and there’s usually someone around to help us out if we need it. Keep it up.

Like Static said we used to be part of this owners gaming “community” until i posted my review about his servers. so we know everyone here that is posting good reviews and none of them play besides DKX, and Darkhorse.

The servers do not function at a par that is considered standard by now with AvP servers. They are indeed unplayable at most times, the owner blames “bad gaming code” but this is just not an acceptable answer. If WPC can run servers out of their basement that have no hiccups i dont see why “professional” servers cant do the same.

The site, claims 24/7 support but i dont think theres ever someone online to assist, tested it a few times still bupkiss.

pricing is about the same around the community, if you actually have a friend who hosts a server you like they might even just hook you up for free.

as for overall service i cant say cause i have never purchased a server from hivegaming. But due to the unprofessional attitude of one Josh Mcbee and harassment that I had to deal with, i would urge consumers to steer clear and go with someone more reputable.

These servers are plagued with the laggy bug where the first time you join the game, it is very laggy. Sometimes it can take over 20 – 30 seconds just to spawn after being killed. You will see enemies running in place, you attack them, and then they fall down dead not registering who killed them. Also, when players leave the game, sometimes it will boot people from the game at the same time. Most servers out there have overcome this issue. I haven’t noticed it in any servers except Hive Gaming servers in several months now.

I was a part of this website before as a Super Moderator and had no ill will towards them or their servers. However, after some of their recent tactics, I felt it was my duty to write an honest review.

Some of the people writing these reviews have not played AvP on a regular basis or perhaps even played on these servers. Therefore, how can they possibly review the servers? Also, the negative review, although written improperly, brought up some of the same points that I am bringing up. The owners of these servers contacted and harrassed the reviewer on Steam and then had the negative review removed.

- I rated the overall service 3 stars simply because I never dealt with them on a client basis and didn’t feel giving anything less would be justified.

- Server Quality got 2 stars because of the issues mentioned above.

- Pricing got 3 stars because it is pretty much on par with the rest of the market for AvP.

- Website got 2 stars because of the amateurish feel to the site. I also don’t think they have permission to use the transformers trademarks. Kind of unprofessional for a business.

All in all, I didn’t play in these servers when I was a part of this network, and I still don’t. These servers are supposedly housed in a large server hosting location in chicago with some of the top of the line equipment. The server I play on is hosted in a friend’s basement and I feel it runs better.

Currently I’m living in the oceanic region – most U.S servers I have played on have an excessive amount of lag – however it’s actually quite amazing how the american AvPsource servers have changed my opinion of overseas gaming.

The guys at source must have someone looking out for them, because their servers set the benchmark for national, and international competitive gaming.

About shamshi’s comment, this is absolutely false and misdirected. It is common knowledge that the latency issues with this game are due to the game code itself and not the server it’s running on. You can check the Sega forums and see for yourself where everyone has complained about this. This is on Rebellion’s end and cannot be helped. Also, if you want to be thorough the issue exists when a user with a significantly higher ping joins the server as the game code dynamically adjusts itself to cater to the higher ping player. I have had AvP servers from several other providers including GameServers.com and UltimateGameServers.com as well as HiveGaming.net and the result is always the same. I can also tell from his rating of the price that this is false. Even if you weren’t satisfied with the service or website there’s no way you can say the price is not more than reasonable. I believe this rating to be a disgruntled employee or other deeply angry person and think it should be removed.

As for my own rating, I have several servers from this company including: an AvP server, a Team Fortress 2 512fps server, and a TeamSpeak 3 voice server. All of my servers are wonderful and we have experienced only minor latency issues (again this is code based) even with players from as far away as Russia and India (the server is located in Chicago, US). I tested several of their test servers as well as read testimonials and asked around on forums and I have never heard of anything bad regarding this company or their service. I highly recommend them for all of your game server or voice server needs.

Hard to say anything negative about this site. Clan hosting, servers for sale on multipule game platforms, consistant event hosting and even their own chat software!(pending). You can satisfy all your gaming needs at this one stop shop, see you over there!

My team Vicious Malice play on any of the 6 Alien vs Predator Servers provided by Hive Gaming. Regardless that we are situated in the EU and the servers are in the US, the quality still shines through!

Keep up the good work!
