What is the name of your company?
The name of my company is Blazin Barrels Game Server Rentals

What is your name and title?
My name is Reg Piper. I am the owner and President of Blazin Barrels.

When did your company officially launch?
Blazin Barrels officially launched online on November 14th, 2003. We are almost at the one month old mark.

Tell us about your company and services
Blazin Barrels offers online game hosting for games such as Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, Soldier of Fortune 2, Battlefield 1942 and many others. For those that wish to host a server and have other clans and friends play with them online, this is a very affordable solution for them. We also include free clan website hosting, and offer very reasonably priced TeamSpeak Voice servers as well. We have specials for new clients which can be viewed at our website.

What is your day to day role like at your company?
My role is to be a "jack of all trades" right now. As a new company we are going through a learning curve with all the different games. I have the assistance of a brilliant technical person who is nothing short of genius. His online name is Soulja. I rely on him a lot. As well, there are numerous emails that need answering. People send in questions, complaints and just comments in general. However, every single email gets looked at and responded to if appropriate. I am an avid gamer, but all the work involved in running this company has drastically cut down my game playing time. However, it is a hobby as well as a business, so I really don't mind. What I really enjoy is interacting with my clients.

How do you differentiate your company and products in a highly competitive industry? Why would I choose you?
In a nutshell, what differentiates Blazin Barrels from other game server rental co.'s is our service. We consider each client a friend. As such, you get treated like a friend. We do not charge you for every little extra thing you want to run. As I said, this is a hobby so I can keep the margins very low. Which means a great value to our "friends". We will always strive to make our friends happy. If we don't we guarantee to work out a satisfactory solution or you will get your money back.

People would choose us for our honesty and integrity. We are not out to gouge anyone. We strive to provide our friends with a great place to game and compete and for a very low cost.

What areas in your business would you like to improve?
Currently we are striving to continually improve all areas of the business. However, what will remain at the forefront of our efforts is to continually refine and offer our friends great deals and prices.

Who do you see as your major competitors?
I don't see anyone in particular as a MAJOR competitor. There are many game host providers, but those that offer honesty and integrity would be our direct competitors. People see through the others that are just out to clean their pockets of their hard earned cash. Having said that, there are enough customers around to allow any business to thrive. Anyone shopping for a game server co. should always strive to find one who is honest and lives up to the promises.

What do you feel is the best thing about your company?
I would have to say the best thing about Blazin Barrels is our outlook. Anyone working in this co. is involved in the gaming community. We have all experienced renting servers from various hosting companies. We know what you need, what you have gone through, and what you expect. We are one of the gamers. We will treat you exactly as we would expect to be treated ourselves.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
That is a very hard question to answer. 5 years in this business is an eternity. However, I see us still being the same, friendly company that we are now. Possibly just have a lot more servers to enable us to continue to offer great, low cost solutions to gamers.

Do you have any final comments?
Only that I am very fortunate to be able to turn what is my hobby into something I can use to help other people. Gamers and online communities are made up of quite a mix of people from all walks of life. It is very interesting getting to know these people.

    Reg, and Blazin Barrels, are one heck of a great entity to deal with. I inquired a few months ago about a server for FarCry, and while the linux version has still not yet been released he has converted a server to Windows, to allow, this and other games to be played., I live on the West Coast, and have Excellent pings to the server. Rocket speed, friendly reliable service, and all around good people !
