Managing Multiplayer Game Servers
Gaming is the mass medium of the 21st century. We've soared past the early days of Tetris and Pac-Man to multiplayer games designed to solve complex scientific and social problems. The stereotype of the gamer as a solitary creature still has a lot of hold in modern culture. Think of the word "gamer" and you start to imagine a caricature of a teenage geek, holed up in his bedroom, subsisting on snack food and ignoring his hygiene and social life, fixated on his favorite game. Players meet online to compete and form teams, swapping strategies and banter over voice chat. Gamers are also taking themselves out of their bedrooms and into real life gaming competitions, where players from all over the world meet to see who's the best, competing not just for points, but for real money and prizes. Some gamers are so good that they've been able to make a living playing competitively , like professional athletes. Gaming hardware makers seek these professional players out for endorsements the way sneaker and cereal makers seek out other professional athletes. These servers need to be hosted somewhere, and with the business web hosting market saturated, a number of providers are turning to a very lucrative player base.
