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

 Last Weeks Winner

Battlefield 3 AK907 Clan

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! ūüėÄ

[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 Servers¬†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.¬† 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!

Battlefield 4 Clan AK907

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!

Last Thursday we had a great time with a couple people showing up for the Weekly Clan Event and then again on Sunday when some of the clan members came together for our first Clan Meeting, and then comes End Game with Air Superiority!

Thursday’s Clan Event Winner

Well, last Thursday we had another 7 hours of gaming and fun times. Unfortunately, only one person signed up in the forums, so the victor again is KUCF – Congrats man! I don’t have any screenshots or any other information to throw regarding last week’s clan event, but stay tuned for this week’s event because it’s bound to be fun times in happy town since the End Game released in the US today.

Sunday’s Clan Meeting

Sunday’s clan meeting was definitely healthy. I am glad to report that we are going to be keeping the 48 slot server at 48 slots, though at times that player count may change to conform to the “Quickmatch requirements” needed to try and get our server going. There’s a final report and follow-up regarding that meeting that has been posted here for everyone’s enjoyment:¬†http://forums.ak907.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=167 (My notes are in RED in the second post in this thread)

AK907 Battlefield 3 Clan

Battlefield 3’s End Game was released today including two new, original, game modes: CTF and Air Superiority
Join the AK907 Clan Thursday on TeamSpeak for a chance to win big with Air Kills!

Other Stuff

Dedaciai purchased a 24 slot Air Superiority-ONLY server for the clan for the rest of the month of March (Thanks Dedaciai!!!). I am happy to report that the server has been full most of the day now, and there has even been a queue for it at times! I have changed the 48 slot server over to CTF-ONLY as of about lunch time today. We’ll let this roll for a little while and see how well the CTF mode is taken. If things aren’t picking up for us in a couple days, we should probably switch it over to 24/7 CQ Large on the End Game maps and see how that’s taken.

 48 Slot End Game CTF:

 24 Slot End Game Air Superiority:

There was an additional patch that was released with the Battlefield 3: End Game map pack that fixed a couple of items on EA/DICE’s list. Here’s a brief overview of those fixes:

  • TV-missile should no longer be able to blow up the chopper shooting the missile (YAY!!!)
  • Fixed proximity¬†defense¬†on mobile¬†artillery¬†and increased proximity defense radius
  • Scavenger ticket count increased (by double)
  • Enabled player movement on Gun Master pre-rounds
  • Improved the position of the repair torch on the screen when repairing vehicles – it works now
  • Fix the issue where AT mines would count as vehicle kills
  • Fix an issue where player camera would flip 180 degrees if the player was revived in water
  • Added ticket status at the end of round screen for Scavenger
  • Enabled Co-Op dog tags to be used in-game now
  • Added some additional ProCon commands

There were a couple other lesser-known bugs that were patched as well. A full report from EA/DICE can be found here: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/news/view/2925730253179557023/

This Thursday’s Weekly Clan Event is sure to be fun times, so be sure to join us in TeamSpeak for your chance to win a week (or two!) of fame on our home page! This week’s challenge will, obviously, be to get the MOST AIR KILLS in light of the Air Superiority game mode that was released today. Be sure to hop on our TeamSpeak server between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM Central Time to get your pwn on!

That’s all I have for today, but I look forward to seeing you online to help get the servers going every day this week! ūüôā

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

If you are a Battlefield 3: Premium member, be sure to check out the Videos Section of you Battlelog to preview the new video that came available this morning: End Game Teaser! I did a rough preview and it looks pretty exciting! I mean, you can’t go wrong with a motorcycle, right? .

End Game Battlefield 3

Motorcycles will be a feature of the Battlefield 3 End Game map pack due out in March 2013.

That is all I have for today – make sure you check back with us by next Thursday where we will have our next Weekly Clan Event. We haven’t decided the challenge for next weeks event yet, but expect that to be up no later than EOD Wednesday.

I do have my computer with me over the CHRISTmas, so I should be online off and on through the weekend/EOD Tuesday.

If there are no other announcements until after CHRISTmas, we at the [AK907] Clan would love to wish you and your family a VERY Merry Christmas and a most wonderful New Year!

Until next time, see you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

Clan Updates

There have been a few discussions this week regarding the type of game server we want to put up to help build our member base. I think we are torn between a few different ideas, but I think we can overcome them too. Firstly, the AK907 clan does not have the financials to pay for a Battlefield 3 Ranked server. I think a Battlefield 3 server would be our best choice for bringing in traffic to the clan site and new member prospects. Since we don’t have the financials to pay for a Battlefield 3 server and we do not have any current sponsors, I think I am going to work on setting up a special PayPal account for the clan to accept donations that would go towards paying for a Battlefield 3 server. Expect to see a post about that sometime in the coming weeks with some new links on our clan page. If there were any overages in donations, we could use that cash to purchase items to be awarded as prizes for clan events, or for shipping for gifted prizes.

 

AK907 Clan Server

Day of Defeat: Source

The other option is to setup a server that we could host ourselves, using the same hardware that currently hosts the AK907 site. This is¬†actually¬†already in the works, however I’ve been holding off on moving forward with this project for a few reasons. I am not sure which game we would like to host. There are SEVERAL options, but I think the best options would either be Counter Strike: Source or Day of Defeat:Source. We could also try something like an Unreal Tournament, Call of Duty WaW or MW server, or a Quake 3 server, but those are games I haven’t played in years and would have to find my discs, if they are still good, etc etc… Either way, I think this servers’ hardware is capable of hosting both CS:S and DoD:S at the same time, though probably not much more than that. Really all I am lacking on moving forward with this project is the time needed to setup and test the servers.

Gaming Updates

There was an update this week for Medal of Honor: Warfighter – The release of the Zero Dark Thirty map pack. I think I’m coming to find out that they are not giving this map pack away, even to Digital Deluxe owners! It does seem like a fun addition though. There were also a few updates from the¬†enormous¬†patch that was released days before the map pack which included VoIP improvements, in-game party improvements, quick select for classes/weapons, improved stability, and a few other items.

Now the exciting news… ūüôā

Some details regarding the Battlefield 3 map pack End Game have been showing up across the internet. There are a few different reports, but basically the official reports are this:

  • Four new maps designed for high speed combat and action
  • Three new vehicles including the fast and agile dirt bikes
  • New dropship provides support to ground troops with vehicle drop capabilities
  • Return of the classic Capture The Flag game mode

Battlefield 3: End Game delivers some of the most high-speed warfare to date across four vast maps. Race through enemy lines using the new dirt bike, bringing speed and agility to the Battlefield, or fight back aerial assaults with new lightweight AA vehicles.
Coordinate lightning fast attacks and defenses in the return of the classic Capture The Flag game mode. In the skies, the new dropship introduces the ability to turn the tide with rapid deployment air drops of troop transports.

 

The initial “teaser” trailer for the End Game map pack is expected to be out this Friday, December 21st, so keep an eye out next week for this video!

That’s all I have for today. Please try to join us tonight for our Weekly Clan Event, but if we don’t see you have a wonderful, safe, and very merry CHRISTmas!

See you on the battlefield, SOLDER!
