Hey everyone, just a little reminder to be on the [AK907] Clan TeamSpeak 3 server for tonight’s clan event! You can join the server by clicking the TeamSpeak picture below. Also, Battlefield 3: End Game is discussed below!
Tonight’s event challenge will be to obtain the HIGHEST OBJECTIVE SCORE between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM. The winner with the highest objective score will receive a weeks worth of fame on the AK907 home page! Congratulations again to last weeks winner, Gr0wzy, where he beat out everyone else to obtain the most kill assists!
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.
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.
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… 🙂
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:
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.
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!
