So is SWC's game/website server thing hosted in some room chock full of servers in a warehouse somewhere in England? Or does Veynom have some really sweet privately-owned computer setup somewhere hosting the site? Also where DOES he host it from? Germany? London?
Ayeyeye, I've been playing too much Watch Dogs. It's made me curious.
Tracerout suggests Dallas, which rings a faint bell from similar questions from a few years back. I believe there was a storm or something in Texas a few years ago that knocked the server offline, which is where I first heard the servers were located there.
Edit: Well, this was easier than running a traceroute...
Yes we have dedicated hosting provided by crucial paradigm, based out of Dallas, Texas.
Perhaps paradoxically, the server's timezone setting is MST, not CST.
