The gaming community syRed was founded about the end of 2010 and was emerged from the clan The Burning Legend. The technical implementation was carried out by Rammrocker.
The aim of the project is to promote the fun of playing together and to simplify the way of communication with a website and a permanently running voice server.
The first and most significant breakthrough happened with the hosting of own Battlefield 2 Server by Electronics Arts.
The whole system was based on an own statistic system for rankings. The programming happened in the cross-platform language LUA. To create a unique experience: Maps got be modded and many more customizations for the multiplayer were done. The servers were nearly all the time filled with about 100 visitors..
Till May 2014 syRed operated some of the most successful Battlefield 2 servers, until the associated GameSpy servers were switched off by Ziff Davis. Caused a shutdown for the syRed Battlefield 2 part too.
During this time some other projects get growded. One of these was the server for Rockstar Games Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The SA-MP mod offers a possibility to to add a network based multiplayer to the original singleplayer title. An own huge, nearly 20.000 lines gamemode in the PAWN scripting language was coded for this.
Besides many web applications with sql database connection, for example a donation system with PayPal API, a few more gameservers like DayZ and Minecraft were configured and hosted.
Through a focus on 24/7 operation, experience in the fail-safe and stable operation of service applications has been gained over a long decade.
