So, if you've been playing starcraft for the past few years. you've been noticing the death of players. I'm curious, because, the main reason I get when I ask people why they stop playing is because of all the immense hacking, for instance a hack that completely shuts down the eastern server for a period of time. These hacks are only getting worse. I've been getting hacked myself a lot by a variety of hackers. So I'm curious, why is there no private server being setup by the starcraft players that would police the server enough to keep hackers out? I mean really though, the games been out for over 14 years and there's not one private server setup? I don't understand why?

There's the iccup server, which states whether or not you have anti-hack on when you enter a game. If you don't have it on, most hosts will ban you. ICCup is used almost only for melee, though, so it'll be pretty tough for you to host UMS maps on it.

no ums? I couldn't do that, it's all I play on it, thanks though!

People do play ums on iccup. I think us broodwar east is the only server i've encountered that's so overflowed with hackers. US west non expansion doesnt have this issue (there are people who hack, but nothing on the level of crashing games/servers) but i'm guessing you're looking for broodwar only. I would say iccup is probably your best bet even though people still hack on that as well.

iCCup, as others have said, is the best foreign private server. There is a certain amount of UMS played on it although not as much as on US East. Fish (a Korean server) is far more active than all the other servers combined, but it's largely Korean which makes it difficult for most foreigners.
