Today’s blog post is going to go over tonight’s challenge, last weeks winner, this Sunday’s clan meeting, Battlefield updates, clan server updates, and anything else I can fit in here.

Clan Meeting This Sunday

This Sunday will be our second [AK907] Clan Meeting, and I hope everyone will join us for our discussion and updates. It’s important for everyone that wants to be involved with [AK907] (accepted members, donating members, recruits, and non-members) to try and join in for these meetings because they affect how the clan is ran. If you like or do NOT like something, bring it up in the meeting! There’s no “bad discussions” in our meetings and there are DEFINITELY no “bad questions”. Anything about the clan goes!

Here is what I plan on trying to discuss in the meeting:

  • Financials
    • Donations
    • Expenses
    • Purchases
  • Give-Away (Where to obtain funds to purchase)
    • Battlefield 4
    • Computer Parts
    • Other stuff
  • Server Population
    • How can we populate our servers?
    • Map rotation change?
    • Free reserved-slots for regulars?
  • [AK907] Clan YouTube Channel Videos
    • Does anyone in the clan record (FRAPS/Bandicam)?
    • How can we help Gr0wzy get our channel going?
  • New Recruits
    • [AK907] Clan – Our History
    • [AK907] Clan Goals

If there’s something else you would like to discuss, please mention it here or post a comment on this thread in our forums: http://forums.ak907.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=189&p=721

Ā Last Weeks Winner

Battlefield 3 AK907 Clan

GvnrRickPerry does some annihilation of the opposing force obtaining unheard of TEAM SCORE in a single round! (Click to see larger image)

 

Last week we had a couple of people hop online for some pwnage, including a new “regular” going by the name of “CRACKdaSKULLS” (add him on Battlelog if you haven’t already). We pwned it up and eventually came away with some great stats.

Congrats to the winner of last week’s event, with a total of 480 TEAM SCORE: CRACKdaSKULLS!

Congrats to this week’s winner: CRACKdaSKULLS!!!

I hope to see several of us online tonight for our next clan event! Thanks for playing!

Tonight’s Clan Event Challenge

Tonight should be another great turn out for our Weekly Clan Event, so be sure to join us between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM Central US Time on TeamSpeak 3 (click the TeamSpeak 3 image below to be auto-connected to our clan server) where you can compete to win a week of fame on our AK907 Clan Home Page!

Tonight’s challenge is for you to have the HIGHEST GENERAL SCORE between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM Central US Time. Tonight I see us playing on a few different servers, but I hope we can get our 48 slot clan server going just so it will ease the whole stats logging that I have to do after the event.

I believe I’m going to try to change the map rotation up a bit. I’ve seen other servers do a CQ map (any map pack) followed by a CTF or CQ map from the End Game map pack and it seems to attract some players, so I may set that up some time today to get ready for tonight. Here’s to hoping! šŸ˜€

[AK907] Clan Servers

Well, as most of you know, we dropped our 3rd clan Battlefield 3 server (Branzone) last month and it was finally cut off for us. We may be dropping the 24 slot AS server soon if we do not receive some additional donations as well. I’ll be updating the AK907 Clan ServersĀ page at some point today as well to reflect this. Other than that, most of our servers seem to be working fine: CS:S, DOD:S, TS3, BF3:24 Slot, and BF3:48 Slot. I’m also thinking about purchasing CS:GO and replacing the DOD:S server with a CS:GO server. I may still do this at some point in the near future because I would love for the clan to bring in additional members that would support those servers.

I have been working very diligently, when I have the time, on fixing the vastly broken TeamSpeak 3 permissions for our TS3 server. Right now things are a long ways from how I want them, and it’s going to take several hours to get them back right and working like I would like them to.Ā  I hope to be working on this today and over the next week, so keep an eye out for changes!

Updates from EA/DICE

So, as most of you have seen, Battlefield 3 will be receiving another Double-XP event that begins at 4:00 AM (Central Time) on Thursday, May 9th. As you can rest assured, many [AK907] members will be online during the 96-hour time-frame to attempt to level out their soldiers. We look forward to seeing you all online during this event!

Chopper over the Caspian Sea in the Battlefield 4 campaign preview that EA/DICE gave us.

EA/DICE have not been very forthcoming with Battlefield 4 hints, but we have managed to find out a few things here and there:

  • Armchair General
    • Rank up into the seat of the brand new Commander mode and lead your team to victory
  • Battlelog 2.0
    • The next version of the stat-of-the-art gaming portal. Track every shot, every opponent, and every detail of your online Battlefield career.
  • Go Premium
    • Stand out on the battlefield with exclusive uniforms, weapons, and more. Get exclusive expansions, starting with Drone Strike (TBA).
  • Thrill Ride
    • Thrilling single player campaign takes you all over the world as part of an elite squad of soldiers.

And a release date of late October, 2013, was all found on a poster that EB Games had put up. Keep in mind that the release date may not reflect the release date in the USA as this poster was found at an EB Games in another country that is overseas:

Closing

That’s all the news I have for today, so I hope you enjoyed the blog post.

Again, be sure to join us on TeamSpeak tonight for our Weekly Clan Event, and definitely don’t forget about Sunday’s [AK907] Clan Meeting!

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

-GvnrRickPerry

Last night we had another great clan event with several people hopping online to help get things going. I got all of the servers configured with the End Game map packs, and switched them up a little so they are running 24 Slot Air Superiority, 48 Slot Rush, and 18 Slot CTF (Hardcore). We actually had both RUSH and AS servers full last night, and that continued until well after midnight!

Clan Event Winner

Last night we had 5 people on TeamSpeak, so there were definitely enough people to determine a winner for this weeks clan event! Since KUCF has won twice in a row, he is notĀ eligibleĀ to win this event, but that doesn’t matter anyways because he didn’t get very many air kills. Fortunately, I hopped on the AS server before anyone else got online and had a couple of ace rounds there before hopping over to the RUSH server and trying to get it populated. Eventually the rest of the crew got online and joined us on the Rush server, and then it started to get full! I ended up switching myself to the other team at first because they were loosing pretty bad, and I wanted to make sure they stuck around. That was a bad choice, because I only won 1 round last night because of that… šŸ™‚ I will say that I did have a couple of really nice rounds as far as points go, but I think everyone else did too.

AK907 Clan Battlefield 3 End Game

We ended up having some great rounds as far as points go, but only one person wins the event for tonight…

So Dedaciai hopped on for 3 rounds last night and ended up walking away with the prize due to getting 16 kills in one round (albeit most of them were my deaths)! Congrats to Dedaciai and we hope to see you online Sunday, and again next Thursday for the Weekly Clan Event!

This Sunday

This Sunday we’re going to do another one of these Clan Events and see who all is able to make it. The challenge will still be to obtain the MOST AIR KILLS between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM, so make sure you join us on our TeamSpeak 3 server (AK907.NET) so you areĀ eligibleĀ to win! It’s going to be difficult to showcase two players, but I believe I can accomplish this with another widget in WordPress, so we’ll give them a week of fame as well!

There has been lots of playing around with server settings trying to get quickmatch to work correctly, along with making sure the configuration is ideal and people want to come play on our servers. I think we finally have most of this figured out, but what I’ve found is that the crowd changes every few days. When End Game first came out, our CTF server was getting a lot of the attention (AS is always full!), but lately (past two/three days) it has died down, so yesterday we changed it over to Rush and got a full 48 slot server again. I think there will be lots of map and game mode changes to try and get something that everybody wants to join in on, but for right now we are going to leave things as they are and see what happens.

 

AK907 Clan Battlefield 3 End Game

Congrats to this week’s winner: Dedaciai!!!

That’s all I have for this week, but make sure you join us this Sunday as well as next Thursday for our Weekly Clan Event! Also, check out our forums as registration is now open (butĀ SEVERELYĀ restrictedĀ until I approve and authorize the account, so use a familiar nickname) and anyone can register! I have been monitoring spam attempts, and we get several of them a day, but so far they have been thwarted!

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

Thursday night’s clan event winner is discussed as well as End Game and the [AK907] Clan Meeting on Sunday.

[AK907] Clan Meeting

Next week is going to be a big week for [AK907] as we are going to be

  • Meeting Sunday to determine several factors about the clan as well as core members
  • Increasing the player count from 26 to 48 slots on our Chicago server
  • Switching the 48 man server to CTF-ONLY (on the 12th)
  • Purchasing an additional 24 slot Air Superiority-ONLY server (implementedĀ on the 12th)

I don’t know how to say this without sounding like a complete douche, but it is imperative that you join us on Sunday for the clan meeting. Even if you do not have anything to give, your opinion still matters to me and I would appreciate if everyone that has been on the TeamSpeak server in the past 6 months join us on Sunday to talk about things. The agenda for the meeting can be found here (http://forums.ak907.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=167) but the items I will be discussing are going to be brief and I will try to finish my topics as quickly as possible so I can address each of the people that join us for the meeting.

Last Night’s Winner

Last night I got online a little later than normal due to me being behind on a lot of things because of my move last week and my vehicle problems. I did catch up with a bunch of stuff and hop on the [AK907] Clan Battlefield 3 Server and try to get it going for us. After sitting in the map rotation that the clan voted on for about 2 hours with no one joining the server, I decided to change things up a bit and re-implement the GunMaster/Domination rotation. Sure enough, shortly after switching the maps to a Domination game mode, the server started receiving players. We managed to gather about 8-10 people online last night, and with 200% tickets we were able to hang on to most of those players through several maps until well after 11:00 PM.

Congrats to this week’s winner: KUCF!!!

 

A big shout out to =365=X1101110266 for hopping on the server later last night and helping to maintain the player count! The =365= Insomnia Clan has pledged their assistance in helping the [AK907] Clan get going and with any questions we may have about clan related items. They have also offered to assist us in getting our server started, if we find we desperately need the help. šŸ™‚ That being said, I would like to say “thank you” to everyone in the =365= Insomnia Clan for being so welcoming to us, and specifically for allowing me to ask the questions I’ve asked and to play on the =365= server without worrying about pissing people off. THANK YOU!

That being said, there was a sign-up in the forums last night for the weekly clan event, but since I’ve had such a rough week and only one person signed up for the event, I decided to change the event to “no sign-up required” for yesterday only, and to just work off of the people that hopped on the TeamSpeak server. This is going to be something that is discussed in the clan meeting on Sunday as well. Even given that I was going off of the TeamSpeak list, there was only 3 people (including myself) that were online for the clan event yesterday. After the dust settled and the kills were counter, it was determined that this weeks clan event winner was KUCF with a total of 116 kills! Congrats man, and good luck to everyone for next weeks event!!!

Battlefield 3: End Game

The End Game map pack has been released for Premium PS3 players, and while I haven’t downloaded and started playing it on my PS3 yet, I have read several reviews that have only gotten me more excited for this release! What has really got my goat is this video:

Specifically the first 25 seconds of it. I’m not gonna lie. I’m pretty turned on from watching it again. I have read quite a bit about what EA/DICE was trying to accomplish with this final release and it definitely sounds like they have succeeded in what they were trying to accomplish. Their goal for End Game was to use the Fostbite 2 Engine to render 4 distinctly different seasons across 4 different maps:

  • Kiasar Railroad with it’s spring setting offering players a vast landscape with, as the name suggests, a railroad cutting through it creates a simple yet effective crossroad layout
  • Nebandan Flats is the summer settings with a low and very flat desert location offering players capture points centered around small groups of buildings to takeĀ coverĀ in
  • Operation Riverside offers a “tangle of rural pathways leading down to a chaotic jumble of buildings”, including a river as a naturalĀ boundaryĀ and plenty of buildings to use as cover
  • Finally, Sabalan Pipeline with the winter season, that takes place in a snow-covered oil refinery with each capture point built around lots of cover

What’s obvious about these maps is they are definitely Battlefield maps with a familiar feel, not catering to a particular style of gameplay such as the CQD maps. The End Game map packs also bring back to Battlefield the original CTF and Air Superiority game modes which are bound to liven things up for a while until Battlefield 4 is released.

One of the most exciting items coming with End Game is the new DropShip, which is a C-130Ā HerculesĀ that has the ability to drop vehicles Ā into much-needed locations:

AK907 Battlefield 3 Clan

Dropship: A new vehicle that will be coming with the Battlefield 3 End Game map pack.

That’s all I have for today.Ā CongratulationsĀ to KUCF for the win this week (second week in a row, so someone new has to win next week), and I look forward to seeing you all online Sunday at 9:00 PM (Central) for the [AK907] Clan Meeting.

Have a great weekend, and see you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

The AK907 Clan Battlefield 3 Server is now online!

It was purchased last night and was configured throughout the evening. About 10 people hopped online and started the server, and a fewrandoms hopped in too. We had a couple of rounds of rush before the end of the night, but today I changed the map rotation a little bit and eliminated the rush mode. This is just temporary until next week when I can tally the responses to the survey I have posted below. The survey is open to anyone, but I would ask that if you hang out on the AK907.net TeamSpeak server that you leave your name so I know those answers are from our community.

(The survey was removed from this blog post because it was causing a strange issue where focus was directed to it when arriving at the home page, causing people to scroll to the top of the page. To participate in the survey, please follow this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1jBOHxCYeCY8DjshKLRndKwskry6rLGJT4TDc5709NZQ/viewform)

 

End Game

Battlefield’s next map pack titled End Game, due out in March, has been talked about quite a bit recently, and a ton of really cool details have came to light! There is an expansive blog post (here), from Battlefield, that details the maps and their supporting game modes, along with distinguishing features about the maps. I recommend you take a read if you really want to see what these new maps are going to be like.

That being said, EA/DICE did post 4 hi-res screenshots of the new maps, and I’ve brought them here, to you, free of charge. šŸ™‚

Please donate so we can keep this Battlefield 3 server up and operational, and remember to put your BF3 name on the form as well so I know who you are!

Don’t forget to sign up for this Thursday’s Weekly Clan Event in the forums too! This is going to be something that we’re going to start doing regularly so more people come to the forums. It’s a GREAT way to interact with the community and really be a voice in the clan! Here’s the link for the sign-up forum, and if you don’t have a WordPress or AK907 Forums account (WordPress and AK907 accounts carry over), let me know what you want your username to be and I’ll hook you up with a password: http://forums.ak907.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=144

That’s all for today! Be sure you complete the survey above so we can get a map rotation going that’s a little more “official”. I will tally responses next week!

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

The winner of Thursday night’s Weekly Clan Event and a peak into what we’re getting in March with End Game.

 

Weekly Clan Event

This week’s clan event went well with a few clan members joining on TeamSpeak to show the enemy team how it’s done. I was only able to make it online around 9:30, so didn’t get too much time to get caught up with everyone else… Still I managed to come away with -19.41 skill the few minutes I was able to play. Dedaciai came in with -47.91, Gr0wzy 30.95, and theĀ congratulationsĀ to the winner of tonight’s event, TheGermanR00ster, for coming through with 101.39 skill. He had a great round and really showed the Russians how to play with the AEK-971.

Battlefield 3 -End Game Details

Today some additional details were released regarding the EA/DICE Battlefield 3’s End Game map pack due out in March of this year. A couple of videos were posted that showed the use of these new game modes and some of the excitement we might expect from them.

The first video is a good peak at Ā Battlefield 3 End Game Capture the Flag mode and a couple of the new weapons and vehicles that they bring to the table.

It definitely looks interesting, but I’m honestly wondering if the whole flag run that is in the video is staged or if that is actual gameplay and a realĀ representationĀ of what it will be like. I’m also left wondering how big those CTF servers will get, will they be 16, 32, 48, or 64 man servers and at what point will it be “too much”?

The second video is all about Battlefield 3’s new Air Superiority game mode. It looks to be quite a bit of fun and you actually get a glimpse of one the of capture points in the video above, at the very end. If you are premium member, follow the link below, log in to your Battlelog, and check out the video and let me know what you think about it. At one point, I counted 10 jets on the screen (5 v 5) and it was an epic Ā scene to leave us drooling on.

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/premium/video/2013-01-31%2014:00:00/

I’m looking forward to Battlefield 3 End Game now because it looks like it’s going to bring back some of the core Battlefield game modes and go back to the roots of what makes Battlefield, Battlefield. The use of the Frosty2 engine is a real benefit to us players, even though we have our good days and bad days… At the end of the day, it’s still a fun game, and I’d keep playing it if it wasn’t for the next game right around the corner.

AK907 Clan Battlefield 3

A glimpse of the Air Superiority game mode coming with the March release of the End Game map pack, that is expected to be EA/DICE’s last major release for the game.

There’s also some additional tidbits about the End Game map pack that EA/DICE posted in their blog, titled End Game – First Look, which you can find here: http://blogs.battlefield.com/

That’s all I have for this week, but check back next week when we’ll be discussing next week’s Clan Event challenge and trying to come up with some new ways to make you sweat.

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
