How to populate your game server

So you’ve decided it’s time to purchase your own game server.  You’ve played in others and for one reason or another you want to take on the responsibility.  Finding a decent host, purchasing the server, and setting up the configs are all the easy part.  Now how do you plan to get your server populated?

You could spend hours playing against bots or by yourself hoping that a few people will stumble in and it will begin to snowball.  This can take an enormous amount of time.  My last CS:GO server took me about 2-3 weeks to get populated and ~120 hours.  Then once it was populated it ran on it’s own for the most part, but still required some maintenance population boosting from time to time.

Most people probably don’t have the time or drive to  dedicate that much effort into their new or existing server.  That’s where Old School Gamer’s comes in.  We are currently in the alpha stages of our application, but here’s the final goal.  Our service allows you to populate your server with real people.  As your server is seen by others as consistently full the server will gain reputation and start to stay full on it’s own.  Our vision is to have a community of gamers that play any and all games that have a multiplayer variant.  Server owners can come an purchase packages to help populate their servers.  From there the gamer that’s going to play the game regardless can pick and choose what server to join to earn some cash while having fun!

As mentioned above we are still in the alpha stages of the application.  We have began taking users into the gaming community.  The goal is to have the gamers all setup and ready to earn when we flip the switch for server owners to start purchasing packages.  If you’re a gamer you can register here.  If you’re a server owner with question feel free to register and send me a message on the forums.
