The Sanctuary UK are Half-Life² Deathmatch games servers are based in the United Kingdom.   The Sanctuary UK [S-UK] clan was first established in 2001 as a server for Half-Life One Deathmatch (HLDM). We stopped supporting HL1 in early 2006.

If you need more of an adrenaline fix than the standard Half-Life² Deathmatch can offer, then we also host a Adrenaline Gamer 2 server which provides an experience closer to the original HLDM game, with faster movement, Jump Suits, and weapons such as the Gauss, and Gluon.  Server Details are shown below.

The philosophy on our servers are, not to take it too seriously, and the emphasis is on FUN.   Arrogance and gloating are not redeeming features.   Remember, it's only a silly game.   If that is not your outlook on the game of Half-Life², then we would rather you moved on, to a server where they like  continual bickering and arguing.   Several regular users of the servers asked if we could have a clan, so all in good fun we now have the clan tag of [S-UK] and to see a list of those brave enough to want to bear that tag in front of their name, click on the members button.
Anyone who would like to join our clan is welcome, as long as you are mature enough to understand that when you wear our TAG, you represent our CLAN. This means that when you are playing on our servers, or on others, you are an ambassador for our clan, and you are expected to treat people with respect. You are expected to mind the rules of the server that you are playing on. You are expected to be friendly, and have a minimum understanding of English.

Server Information:     The games server is co-located for us by Gaming Deluxe Servers, in Saxon Datacentre, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England.
                                If anyone wanted to run their own games server, I would highly recommend they try Gaming Deluxe Servers, as they have
                                very reasonable prices, and support that is second to none.  They can't do enough for you.  The staff, being gamers
                                themselves, know exactly what is needed to help server owners. Gaming -

                                Deluxe have been operating as a Game Service Provider for several years and have grown to become one of the leading
                                hosts in the United Kingdom. They are one of very few companies that have their own network infrastructure, using two
                                Gigabit Foundry routers to make sure all gamers have fantastic pings and latency. They are well known in the community  
or having first rate support on a 1 to 1 basis, all staff have MSN, Xfire and IRC so that you can talk to them if you have problems.
