Be Broadband Launches Online Gaming Service

Posted: 23rd Aug, 2008 By: MarkJ
Popular UK ISP Be Broadband has teamed up with Enemy Down, a competitive gaming website, to launch its own free gaming service for members - Be Mixes. The service will allow players of online games, such as Counter Strike Source, to join matches and have their stats tracked for use in ladders, leagues, tournaments and events:

Oli White, Head of Marketing at Be Broadband, said “Online gaming can be a fantastic experience, with great players having closely fought matches on fast servers. But very often the reality is far from this, with half empty servers lagging, along with abusive or disruptive players. Even if you do find a good mixing server with plenty of players, some people will be joining then leaving three rounds later and ruining everyone’s day.

A lot of Be members are gamers and we believe that secure, fast and free game servers should be available to all and, coupled with our excellent broadband service, this brand new “Mixes” system will give Be members the gaming experience they want.
”

Most online gamers rarely have problems finding a fast server unless their ISP is at fault, although it's always good to see a provider taking gaming more seriously. We've also managed to track down further details about what members can't expect:

Fast Servers – Not only are our servers packed with the latest technology, they’re set-up by gamers who know how to get the best from your favourite game. No worries about lag, all our servers are 100 tick to ensure you can play your best possible game. Secure – say goodbye to noobs with Aimbots, all our gamers can use the Karma system to report give feedback on players who cheat and/or spoil the gaming experience. Coming soon will be X-ray integration, the best free to use anti-cheat technology with over 1,000 cheats caught and banned in the last 10 months, it’s making gaming a better place.

Prizes – you don’t have to be pro to earn money from gaming, we’ll be awarding a number of prizes every week to reward different types of play and skills. Maybe it’s most headshots or knife kills, whatever your style of play, whatever weapon you like to use, there will be a prize for you to win every week.

Statistics – Think your better than your mate, well prove it with our detailed in game statistics. From kills, damage done and favourite weapon there’s all sorts of information to track how well you do.

Karma – any game is only as good as the people you play with, after any game you’ll be able to rate your fellow players. You can reward good play with glowing praise or perhaps mention that a fellow player maybe shouldn’t TK so often or leave the game halfway through. Players who receive a high level of negative feedback from will receive a suspension, from 24hrs to permanent depending on the severity of the activity.

FREE! – yes that’s right, it’s completely free. For the first weeks we’re running the beta test we have opened the beta up to any member who is currently on a Be Broadband package. As soon as the beta is over this system will be completely free for everyone to use.
