We currently run 5 servers from the EU. These servers have long contracts and are managed by Game Service Providers (people that know what they’re doing)
All could be thought of as ‘Vanilla’ because we like to give feedback to the Dev team, but all have emergent communities, that is, the people that regularly play on them have influenced how the sandbox is ‘flavoured’ on that server.
We are currently not running any Mods (except Deer Isle which runs the Deer Isle mod) on our servers as we feel they all have faults (no disrespect to the modding community, it’s early days)
We do not run passwords or whitelists as we feel this creates ‘safer’ servers for one reason or another, and safe servers are kinda boring, randomness keeps a server edgy, and there’s some great people out there just playing casually, they don’t play whitelist because they can’t be arsed and they won’t look up the password because they can’t be arsed, and they could be your new best friend forever
They’re in the community tab, search for ‘Spaggie’ (I know the browser is less than ideal, it’s being fixed)
Within the rules we do our best to not define how you play the sandbox game you bought, we just try and give you somewhere to play it. None of our servers are RP (Role Play) but you can if you want, none of our servers define base size or raiding rules, but we reserve the right to wipe the server if the server gets kludgy. Enjoy DayZ. If you want to play on The Village, please make sure you adhere to those rules which are slightly different (no TS) since that’s what that community wanted.
If you need rules and reasons please look at The Rules all our servers are 1PP because we believe that’s a nicer and immersive way to play (and it’s scarier). Except The Village our servers are currently ‘mostly daylight’ with regular restarts, we keep the nights as long as we can without affecting server population (people start logging off at about the 30 – 45 minute mark which is a shame). The server rules change very infrequently, I think the last big change was mid 2017 when No TS on The Village became mandatory due to the community in there wanting that.
Here’s a quick rundown:
Shhh…. DVS Clan server – hosted by Spaggie
Currently running the TRMZ Server pre wipe data
This was our oldest server, years of fun and friends just playing DayZ. We met great people and had great adventures on this server over the years, and we learnt ho to play DayZ This server died due to a change at Multiplay which is beyond our control We’ve commissioned a new server to replace it. This is our test and dicking about server. It runs fewer slots at the moment (30) to make it silky smooth. If we’re doing anything ‘funky’ on a server as a test, this is where you’ll see it. Try saying “HEWWO” to people in there.
NEW SERVER! Deer Isle – No Mods – By Barely Infected – Hosted by Spaggie
This server runs 1 mod which is Deer Island
Deer Island is a 3rd party map by John McLane who has a Discord The server was installed and configured by Barely Infected. It’s a lovely map. We won’t tell you what we’ve done in there but it’s probably for more experienced DayZ players. There’s a channel in BarelyInfected’s Discord and we’re trying really hard to not post the map, being lost is great.
You need to subscribe to the one mod, Deer Isle and you’re good to go.
DayZ Village – Barely Infected on YouTube – hosted by Spaggie
Vanilla, wiped only with community consultation
We are very honoured that our friend BarelyInfected and his community allow us to run their ‘The Village’ server, this is a full day/night server on a fast speed multiplier. Some people might suggest this is an Role Play server, but we don’t tell you how to play. We do ask that you don’t use External VOIP, TeamSpeak or Discord here please though, the idea is to try and make The Village a living world, and keep the server in the server.it’s more fun for everyone. You might call this ‘Hardcore’, but it’s not an RP server and never has been
The idea for the TS is that there’s nothing more scary than hiding in a shop and hearing players talking ingame running past. Rene especially didn’t want groups of players running around in silence. You don’t always know who is nearby so help them have a scary moment by not using VOIP. In mid 2017 The Community said they wanted this rule to be mandatory to a negotiable exclusion and they would police it. They’re very good at finding rule breakers.
The Village has a community here: http://barelyinfected.com/news/
TheRunningManZ community server 1PP open to all – hosted by Spaggie
Vanilla, wiped on 1st of every month
We are very honoured that our friend TheRunningManZ and his community allows us to run his server. This server is not especially Player versus Player or Player versus Environment, it’s a server where almost anything can and does happen. People on there seem to play with a slightly trolly sense of humour. Play it how you want, we don’t tell you how to play.
TheRunningManZ also has a 3PP server run by Blackhawk, you should play on there as well: TheRunningManZ community server -3pp hosted by Blackhawk
Russia 11 – hosted by Spaggie
This server is currently running Experimental
You need to use the DayZ Experimental client download
This is essentially our gaming clans playground at the moment, we leave it open so that people can come and play. It was set up as a joke to piss off MrOGx community who’d spent time looting up for a fight with us, so we dropped a clean server on them and punched them out on the coast. Glorious Victory for Death Squad 5000 (Love you OG). We just left it running it felt so nice. We sometimes run events and evenings on here, and pretty much everyone is invited to those. This server is very volatile as it’s where we test and break stuff.
If you’d like to find out about our events and play evenings please follow Death Squad 5000 (The DVS Clan ironically angry name)
We are not alone, there are some great servers in the Community Tab, paid for, run and loved by long term DayZ enthusiasts who would love you to choose them to play on.
I am Jack, I’m the operations manager for the Spaggie servers. I spend a lot of time with a lot of other folk trying to make these servers THE BEST DAYZ EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE, please feel free to ping me on Twitter should you need help
