DayenTech Shuts Down Servers Indefinitely

By TronFAQ on Thursday, February 09, 2006 at 12:50 AM
It is with regret, that I post the first newsworthy item on this site. DayenTech is shutting down all of his game servers, including the ones for TRON 2.0.

Back in the days when the PGB server was still around and being run by Suspect, at first I couldn't understand why these new "DayenTech" servers were so popular. It wasn't until later that I realized why . . . his pings and bandwidth were amazing, thanks to having a T1 line!

After Suspect's server disappeared for good, Dayen's servers just kept on going. They ran almost 24/7 for the better part of 2 full years! No one showed as much tenacity and dedication when running TRON 2.0 game servers, as did Dayen. I don't think even BVG (the game's publisher) could claim the same steady, consistent uptime over those years, that Dayen could.

The shutting down of Dayen's servers will leave a huge void on the game grid. Dayen, on behalf of the TRON 2.0 community: I can't thank you enough for your dedication, generosity, and willingness to listen to the players. Few other server operators would have had the patience to listen to everyone's requests.

We will miss you.

    Yeah wow this is really sad man. I had so much fun having a 140-230 ping via dialup I've no idea how I'll be able to play discs or LC anymore now that Dayentech servers are gone. Cheers & thanks a million for having them there as long as you did man. I'm crossing my chickentoes they'll be back or I'll be digi-fryed xtra crispy in The Kernel's special recipy. crc is a tech help Clan so if it's hardware probs talk to us we may be able to find a solution. And Tronfaq, you stepping up so fast is really amazing & for that we are also grateful.
