Thanks.  I created an account, but I'm undecided if I will play or not.  First the whole SCoRE fiasco, and now it turns out an admin on the new server already went "rogue" and boosted his or her buddies' toons to level 50 over the weekend, causing a character wipe next weekend.  Not very confidence boosting. :P

looks like they shut it down already, I suppose it would be too difficult/costly to setup a private server to solo on?

Probably not, considering how old it is but I don't know.

I suspect this won't be the end of private servers though, someone is going to do another exclusive one and probably work harder at keeping it hidden.

It's a shame, the level of interest is still really high obviously.  But people probably won't take the chance on having this many people hosted going forward.

It's more expensive than you think.  For *one* person, you need a minimum of two physical computer servers, preferably three.  All have a minimum of 32 GB of RAM, powerful CPUs, Windows Server 2008 or 2012 Enterprise, and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or 2012 Enterprise.  The average Joe ain't going to be able to do it, nonetheless afford it.

It turns out the three day weekend server cost $2,500 to set up.  It would cost an additional $2,500 per month to run.
