We dont sponsor any clans, the website you were on probably just put that because the have a server from us. The ventrilo servers are very reasonably priced with a 16-slotter @ $9.99/mo. We offer ventrilo servers in Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta.

lol the website was http://www.ventrillo.com i didnt say clan sponsorship i sed its part of ventrilo u guys r under their sponsors so i was just thinking. but wishful thinking i guess. alot of companies offer free vent servers, alot of really bad companys. and i just figured since u guys were so good that it was an option but like i sed wishful thinking.
since i can get a cheap private server that come wit free vent i guess best bet would be to rent a scrim server from a different company and they'll throw in the vent. bc thats wut my member was doing before he canceled it on us and led me to here ..lol but thx anyways guys

The list on that site is just a list of fully licensed ventrilo hosting companies, not sponsors :wink:
As far as getting some kind of discount on a vent server, thats something you should email us about: rentals @ nuclearfallout.net

We rent out Ventrilo servers in the three locations he listed.

Ventrilo servers are expensive to run in terms of bandwidth costs, and the makers of the software also charge us for each slot we offer. If we were to give them away for free, even if the clan doesn't use it, we would be losing money because we'd be forced to pay for the slots.

When companies compromise on quality they can offer lower prices. We choose not to make that trade-off -- we're content to offer servers with amazing quality at a reasonable price.

Not everyone wants a Ventrilo server. We offer it as a separate choice so that those customers do not have to subsidize the others who do want one.
