I thought it would be nice to have a consolidated thread where we can show our appreciation for the massive effort that both Acaila and Heidi undertook to get the BC2 servers live. It was a long and involved process, requiring detailed contracts, legal advice, delicate negotiation and the slaying of a few sacrificial goats.
And that was just getting the server software - Acaila then had to set up all of the new servers, and troubleshoot the minor issues that have occurred.
From a player's perspective its easy to get impatient and then just see these servers magically appear, but behind the scenes this involved months of work. So it'd be real nice to show your appreciation if you're happy about the new BC2 servers.
I realise there are still a few bugs here and there, but Acaila has some mean hardware to play with and the skills to figure out the issues, so I'm confident that he'll get everything ship shape in no time.
So props to Acaila and Heidi - nice job!
