So as I understand it, if we preorder and get teh $1.24 / slot price then that price is locked in for as long as we keep the server? There wouldn't be a rate increase imposed at some point?

Correct. If you pre-order now, your servers will stay at 1.24 a slot for the life of the subscription.


Now say, if you order only 24 slots at 1.24/slot. And decide to expand to 32 slots, and they are raised to 1.50/slot. You will still pay 1.24 for the first 24 slots, but you would now pay 1.50 for the remaining 8 slots.

Hope this helps :)

If you order a BFBC2 server then you would be on a server with other BFBC2 customers, if you ordered any of our other subscriptions you would be placed on the server along with them. You might struggle to find a dedicated server for $12.50 per month :D

Not sure if you are referring to the physical connections at the datacenter but all of our locations at running with at least one gigabit connection to the internet some locations have several!

when you do pay per slot you get lots of people renting on the box. When you rent a dedicated box, your the only person on. It comes with a nice fee

All access to the servers will start once we receive the go ahead from EA/Dice

What that means is that we are not allowed to give access to the servers prior to the official release date and time.
