Hey everyone, today’s blog post will consist of getting you guys up to date on the latest happenings surrounding the [AK907] Clan, along with some tidbits about Battlefield 4, the upcoming Clan Battlefield 4 Giveaway (Pre-Order), the discontinuing of our 48 slot server, and anything else I can think of whilst typing this post out. 🙂
[AK907] Clan Meeting
The [AK907] Clan Meeting will be on Sunday, June 2nd, starting at 9:00 PM, so mark that spot on your calendar! Here’s why you NEED to be there…
We are going to be discussing the first Battlefield 4 Giveaway Pre-Order! For a detailed look at everything we’re going to be talking about, you can check the forum post here, but for now you need to know that this meeting will be setting the date(s) for the giveaway contest, the criteria you need to achieve eligibility to win the contest, and what we need to make this a quality gaming event! Along with those items, we will also discuss:
- Battlefield 4 Giveaway (Pre-Order)
- What will be the criteria for winning the prize?
- Who is eligible to win (Donating Members only? Non-Donating Members? Non-Members?)
- Dates and times?
- Donations, expenses, and purchases
- Server Population
- Since time on (seeding) the server will be a large part of the criteria needed to win the giveaway, we need to talk about what map rotation we are going to be running that will encourage [AK907] Clan Members to play on the [AK907] Clan server
- Any other ideas we can think of to attract people to hop on our server!
- Gr0wzy’s YouTube Videos
- I’ve got a couple of recordings going and have uploaded two of them to the Mega upload site (credentials for the site are HERE), but need to upload another handful I’ve got
- The videos need to be edited together to make a quality 30 second to 3 minute video that is entertaining
- TeamSpeak Permissions System
- Forum post HERE about this
- Weekly Clan Event
- Obviously I have not had the time I need to coordinate these events the past month. Others have also showed interest in changing the day of the week for the weekly clan events from Thursday to another day. We would LOVE your input! Check the Facebook question here: https://www.facebook.com/questions/496896080375643/
- Forums and Blog activity, posts, and comments
- Anyone visited the home page of the blog or the forums lately?
Obviously we have quite a bit to discuss in the Clan Meeting and I hope we can cover it all. I also hope we have enough members/non-members/recruits join us to and give us some valuable feedback regarding all of the questions we have. Kaidok and Hassassin… It would be very valuable for you two to join us for the meeting and provide some feedback to me before we get started!
Other [AK907] Clan Stuff
Well things have been super crazy for me (personally) as of late and I just have not had the time or energy to put into the clan like I did 4 months ago, but I have been working on improving that and this post is proof of it. The [AK907] Clan will be losing one of its Battlefield 3 servers on the first of June. On top of that, we already lost our DoD:S server that was hosted by GameTracker/GameServers. We will still have CS:S, the 24 slot BF3 server, and our TeamSpeak 3 server, along with all of the hosting and everything – It was all just getting to be too much for one person to manage. Honestly, the [AK907] has access to a lot of resources and the management team has a canny ability to sniff out such resources and obtain them for little to no cost. It’s just getting to a point where we do not have the time to do it all on our own, and work a 50+ hour work week, and play Battlefield, and work on our own entrepreneurship or other endeavors in a given day/week.
That being said, we’ve had some renewed interest in the clan as of late. We’ve had several additional users on the TeamSpeak server and have continued to populate the Air Superiority server on a semi-regular basis – Honestly getting the AS server populated takes every bit of 15 minutes of sitting there and waiting for people to join – It’s not that hard! 😀 I usually end up adding the guys that chat on the AS server to my friends list and some of them have continued to play and join on “the crew” when we’re online. Super exciting to see a renewed interest like this!
Posting is probably going to be slowing down over the summer, but I will try to write some articles when I have the time to do so. If anyone else would like to give writing a shot, holler at me! It’s super easy! 😀
Battlefield 4 News
Well, it’s been a bit since I last posted about Battlefield 4, and a couple of new items to report on have arisen since my last post.

- Those who pre-order Battlefield 4 will receive the first, of many map packs, for free (Only the China Rising map pack will be free for those that pre-order)
- The first map pack has been confirmed as titled “China Rising”
- Additional goodies for those that pre-order
- Additional items that you may receive for pre-ordering Battlefield 4 may include (but are not limited to)

- There will be a Battlefield 4 Multiplayer Demo for us during E3 on June 10th, 2013 so we can check out the multiplayer aspects of the new Battlefield
Well that’s all I have for today… I would like to add that we had a pretty nice turn-out for last night’s “event” even though there wasn’t a challenge and no one technically “won”… I did change the home-page “winner” from R00ster to TwoSixTroy per a conversation we all had last night. I hope you enjoy!
Report back for the Clan Meeting on June 2nd at 9:00 PM! See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
