Game Discussion: Section 8

Ranked servers

  • Posted on 16 May 13 at 02:14Permalink
    So does anyone have any fresh info on the problem TimeGate and SouthPeak are having? The last I looked into it, they were at each other's throats over the ownership of the Section 8 IP and the servers were shut down while that was being sorted out. I also heard that one side had won the legal battle (SouthPeak?) but I've not seen any official update from either side since 2010-ish.

    I've only eight ranked achievements left on the retail disc to complete this, so it'd be pretty cool if the servers are ever due to come back.

    The servers went down in 2012... The dlc's been delisted too so it's not likely to go back up.

    I've been following it for a few months now. One of the mod's forum posts spells out the issue (link).

    From what I can gather, SouthPeak controls the stat tracking certs they need to renew. As a result of the legal problems between them and TimeGate, it was never resolved.
