About 2005 Esh (who sadly passed away 2011) got Call of Duty.
I along with Macone thought it was a good game. We used to have a laugh online shooting one another and getting killed by everyone else.
One day whilst having a few pints (yes we are that old) we thought it would be a good idea to rent a server of our own.
The only name we could think of was the name of the pub we were in at the time,
and as there were three of us we named our first server Jackdaw 3
We carried on like that for a year or so renting a few more servers and webspace, untill I decided to buy my own server which enables
Jackdaw gamers to host almost any on-line game.
As yet we do not take part in any leagues or ladders, but thats not to say it wont happen some time in the future
So as you can all see Jackdaw Gamers has remained and still is online despite a few problems along the way.
The main server is located in a datacentre in Cheltenham which is in the South West of England it has been replaced and upgraded several times over the last 13 years.
It has the capacity to host websites and game servers and is currently running 3 VPMs which include JD3s game servers and website.
Throughout the time it has been online it has been bought, datacentre rental charges paid for, repaired, upgraded, and maintained by myself.
Although we can host any online game, the main game we play is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 along with 2 Battlefield Bad Company 2 servers.
We have hosted all the dedicated server Call of Duty games at some point in time.
But as trends have changed we seem to be favouring MW2 more then any other game at the moment.
We have friends from all over the world literally, and welcome anyone who plays often and fairly in our servers and
contributes to Jackdaw gamers happy and friendly attitude.
We are a friendly bunch who welcome like minded players in all our servers and forums.
