CoD:BO Remote Console FAQ
A: With the addition of player hosted servers, clan servers, custom map rotations, adjustments of game rules, and many other game customizations are now a reality for the Call of Duty: Black Ops Mac player.
Q: Can I choose the location of my server?
A: Yes! When ordering your Call of Duty: Black Ops server from gameservers.com, you will be able to select an option for the location of your server. Pick the location that best suits your needs.
Q: Does this mean I will be an admin and be able to kick people off?
A: Yes! You will have administrative control over your dedicated server. This does mean you will be able to kick and ban other players whom you don’t like, though we suggest a fair and modest rule over your server.
Q: I’ve heard of “Ranked” and “Unranked” servers. What’s the difference?
A: One of the most important decisions you will need to make when ordering your server is if you want a Ranked server or an Unranked server. Here is a brief rundown of key differences between Ranked and Unranked servers:
- Allow for significant configuration options including custom map rotations, modification of game rules (player health, scoring, available kill-streaks), and much, much more
- Do not award players with XP
- Require a monthly subscription fee of $0.99 per player slot (up to 24)
In general, an Unranked server sacrifices XP gain in return for more configuration options.
- Allow for selection of map rotation, game type, server messaging, and more
- Award players with XP
- Require a monthly subscription fee of $14.95 for a server with 18 player slots
