Who are you getting to host the server?

He should have a computer that't on 24/7 and high speed internet and lots of bandwidth, and a few other things.

I would think most (or all?) of the official servers would be hosted on a dedicated server of some kind. A home connection just typically doesn't have the speed nor reliability that is required for hosting a reliable server.

Danji, of course you are free to set up a public server, call it gu style or whatever you wish. But you cannot call it a "official gu league server". At least, we would kindly ask you not to do so yet. All our "official" servers are official for a reason: They need approval.

We have explained this policy many times in the past, but the main reasons are, first, as blast says, reliability of the server, so that all servers are above some quality threshold. Second, configuration, settings and recording capabilities. Third, 100% trusted owners. The latter is extremely important.

We have turned down offers for "official" servers in the past and continue to do so for the well being of the league system. Just to put an example, last year a guy approached us offering an official server, we tested a bit, but refused the offer since we did not trust the owner. It turned out to be a cheater, by now banned at most servers.

So do not feel disappointed if we do not approve the server as official at this point. Bare in mind that only those who we would trust/select/pick to be full GU admins will be normally given trusted owner status.

w00t i really hope a cali gu server could be set up. don't rush it, make it perfect, that way it will have less problems and hopefully gets to become official, great for aussies and nz players.
