Last night was another great 7 hours of gaming! We had a few new people hop on TeamSpeak, we played several different game modes in Battlefield 3, and discussed the addition of our CounterStrike:Source server!
Thursday Night’s Winner
Last night several of us got online and tried to kill as much as possible from within vehicles. A few of us had some great runs, but there is only one victor this week. The winner of last night’s event, with an unheard of 59 vehicle kills spread over just 7 games, is xStormSoulx!
Congratulations on the win, xStormSoulx, and we hope to see you online next Thursday for 7 more hours of straight ownage!
In addition to the clan now accepting donations to go toward purchasing a Battlefield 3 server, we have finally gotten our own CounterStrike:Source server up! I have written a new page, titled “AK907 Clan Servers” (click the link to be taken there) that will house all of our server information. We will be adding at least the Gun Game mod and the Admin mod so the server can be easily managed and fun to play on, so if you would like to check it out, connect via ak907.net:27015.
Once the mods have been installed, I will post the Administrative information in the forums (secured) so all of the clan members can gain access to the server when they need it. Please contact me if you do not have an account for the forums and I will create an account and forward you the login information.
I have went over the entire list of Battlefield 3 server providers here in the US and compiled a spreadsheet of pricing for all of them. All the prices are for a 48 man server and they vary from right at $40 to $105. Personally, I want a server that gives us the option of purchasing the “CPU Priority” feature which will (hopefully) allow our server to run as best it can. The feature is included in the price for the providers that offer it, and the providers that offer it are highlighted yellow. You can check out the spreadsheet here: http://sdrv.ms/XHibYX and let me know what you think about the list and what you would prefer to have (leave notes in the comments section of this post). I believe the goal we should be aiming for on a monthly basis is about $65, and for most providers that is what we need to pay to get started. So we have our goal now and we are $1.64 closer to it from donations, YAY! If you have the means and support the clan having it’s own server, please:
That’s all I have for now, so thank you for reading and I look forward to SEEING YOU ON THE BATTLEFIELD, SOLDIER!!!
