At first you made it sound like there was some kind of official word that it wasn't being shut down.

All gamespy controls is the server browser, just do direct IP.

Direct IP works and i joined a server but only the host was there (the host is a afk bot in this server) -_- ill keep looking for other players but i don't think ill find any.

I test 10 servers and it was only me and the auto host. I would like to point out the server i used are fully 24/7

I really lol'd when I heard Trial servers were down. All those thousands of players suddenly have nothing to do. Hehehe.

Quite right, and these players never actually paid so I'm fine. I would have prefer not to shut down anything... but a 10 years old demo is due

*NOT OFFICIAL
Ok so till now the Halo trial servers were shut for good.. but that doesnt mean the halo custom edition ones will... so stop worrying.

for more info go to StormUndBlackbird vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVBS-wclxgM
Well I'm surprised, that this video get's spread like the plague, but even I have to admit, that this is not the most informative thing to get info about this whole Gamespy server thing. The video is already outdated, as there have been many versions of this drama made, which has more sense. I'd tend to just stick with theses forums and its amazing community doing their best to keep the game, that everyone enjoys to play (imo).

Trial inst down, just the server browser... Come on people. Stop calling it dead when clearly you can still play online.

CE won't die either just the browser will.

Surely this will bring the player base together more? increasing the amount of people visiting the site in order to play the game?

I suggest Dennis post a Sticky detailing how to join servers, so people who search for it can find it.

Considering that GameSpy has NOT discontinued service for Halo PC and Halo CE I think that information would be unnecessary.

You guys are all panicked over nothing.

I should have mentioned an IF in there somewhere.

Check it out. It's got various IP addresses for Ratgames, the main page also shows how many players are on it (1 person is just the autoserver)

Last night we had 9 people on at one time, but probably 15 in total (leaving/going). Just connect to one of these and when people see someone else is on they'll join.
