  • Classic swarm - active servers

    Ten years now, eh? Well... (edit:eleven and counting)

    There are, at the moment, only two swarm v1 server left.

    Rob and Felix kindly provide the DE server, it has all the standard maps and campaigns, runs smoothly for several years now, and has seen a lot of reunion sessions. It is playable from the USofA, and from Canada, too, ping-wise.
    You can check from your browser if there is anyone playing there at the moment, via (browser needs to allow php scripts)
    Thanks again to Rob and Felix, for providing this place to play.

    The Space Engineers' server is located in greece, and it actually features two processes, here are the IP addresses:

    The server has all the maps, I think, and it runs the Options Mutator. So players could type 'mutate optionhelp' into the console to get the small help screen up, showing the availiable mutator commands.
    The server also has some odd unfinished stuff and unfinished maps. Try at your own risk.

    Thanks to tchatzi too for keeping this one up. You guys are Humanity's last refuge...

    Greece may be too far for the US players to get a good ping, but the DE server works okay.

    I will keep this thread up-to-date. If any other permanent servers were put into service, they could be announced here as well.

    EDIT: Updated Dec. 2015

      Let's hope it is just a momentary issue.
      Server has issues and i dont think its going to be resolved soon, needs fresh installation and Thanos needs free time that cant find apparently.

            Hey guys,

            Rob and me just moved our Alien Swarm server to a new host.

            The new IP Adress is

            You can use the Server Browser to check for active players:


            With this step we ensured the survival of one of the two last remaining servers.

            To celebrate this step there will be a game tonight!

            I will be online on the server at about 21:00 GMT +1

            CU later!

                Xmas swarming

                It is that time of the year again.

                I remember some good chrismas sessions, in hindsight it seems like every one of the last ten years, a bunch of badass space marines were out there, eager to squish some bugs.

                So I plan to be online and playing as much as I can, these days. Hoping that some of you may come.

                Updated the server list, and put a link in, to, so people can check from their browsers if anyone is logged in to the DE server.

                      For the last soldiers:

                      Have to switch to an other server in the medium term.

                      So there is the new server on: already running.

                      You can watch at:
                      Please try and report if something is wrong.

                      The "old" server on will be shut down after some time - in 2017.
                      Just for fun
