    I'd go with a 32gb dedicated with that amount of players, just for sure. Where to go is a easy question with a quite broad answer; many people have different opinions about certain providers and their services. Most commonly, I see people recommend OVH.

    Game servers aren't designed for Virtual Machines and Containers. The intense and alive TCP connection is always better in a dedicated server.

    VPS is good for non-scalable Web servers working with HTTP 1.0. and other stuff.

    Check this paper on Virtual Machines, Containers and Bare metal servers by IBM: http://domino.research.ibm.com/libr...52195DD819C85257D2300681E7B/$File/rc25482.pdf

    You can get performance running virtual, no doubt. But even a lower clock, less RAM bare metal will improve your latency.

    For the lazy:

    "Even using the fastest available forms of paravirtual-ization, KVM still adds some overhead to every I/O operation; this overhead ranges from significant when performing small I/Os to negligible when it is amortized over large I/Os. Thus, KVM is less suitable for workloads that are latency-sensitive or have high I/O rates. These overheads significantly impact the server applications we tested."
