Zeal quits hosting

6 Jul 2013 at 14:40

It has been announced that DanZeal, the long-time JJ2 dedicated server host, is shutting down the network after five years of 24/7 service.

It has been alot of fun having the server running, but I feel that I have run out of reasons to keep it up. It’s taking me time, energy and money to having it up. It’s with a sad feeling but also a relief to press the power button.

The J2O staff would like to profoundly thank DanZeal in his efforts to keep the game alive for such a long amount of time. Other than maintaing his own servers Zeal Alpha and Zeal Duels, the Zeal network has been home to other servers, namely Anniversary Bashes 10 and 14, and also numerous JDC events.

Personally, I have also had a short-lived pleasure of maintaining a Jailbreak server on the network, for which I’m still grateful and proud of!

It is yet unknown whether the jazzjackrabbit.net clan ladder will continue to function.

I never got the chance to play on the network, but anyone who helps keep Jazz alive is a hero to me. Thank you so much, DanZeal.

PT32 pretty much summed up what I have to say.
So, I guess I’ll just say this:
Thank you, DanZeal. :)

The end of an era. I figure this might spawn more 24/7 servers just because multiple people could feel they want to contribute to keep stuff going.

By the way, what happened to Azure Moon (the dedicated server project)?

Thanks for your effort to keep this game going, your help was invaluable.

Thanks for your services Zeal!

Yesterday, I already saw more players hosting their own servers. Now we need another 24/7 server besides the rather laggy Camel Duels. :P
