Today’s blog post will feature a few Battlefield 3 Wallpapers that I have found on the net, an update on the CounterStrike:Source server and the mods and maps that are installed on it, as well as this weeks Clan Event.
Donate to our Cause!
Firstly, I want to mention that we have setup the clan to accept donations for the purchase/rental of our own AK907 Battlefield 3 server! Please donate to the cause via the donate button in the sidebar or below. The goal is to raise 65$ per month to pay for a 48 man – all maps – Battlefield 3 CQ and/or CQD server. All AK907 members will have permissions on the server, but those that donate to the cause will receive additional permissions on the server. The “basic” permissions are going to be VERY restricted, while the actual financially supporting members will have pretty much free reign on the server as far as permissions go.
Right now we are $6.19 closer to having a server, so please donate to the cause!
Battlefield 3 Wallpapers
I’ve been looking for various items to bring to our blog, but honestly the Battlefield 3 news is diminishing. I believe the devs are busy working on Battlefield 4 or End Game so they have slowed their posting on the Battlefield 3 blog, so much that their last post was in November!? In any case, I ran across some very nice Battlefield 3 wallpapers that I think you may enjoy. Click the image below to be taken to the BF3 Blog where the wallpaper can be downloaded.

AK907 Clan CountersStrike:Source Server
As you all know I’ve been working on getting a CounterStrike:Source server up and running for us, and I think I finally have everything where I want it to be. I have installed several plugins, a ton of additional (very popular) maps, and the GunGame script. I’ve been testing it out, refining things, over the past week and I think it’s finally at a place where I can be hands-off and just kind of let things run. For everyone’s information, the following plugins are installed:
- Mani Admin Plugin
- Mattie’s EventScripts
- CS:S Tools
- SDK Tools
On top of the above mentioned plugins, I have installed the following map list onto the CS:S Server:
Not all of the maps above are in the Mani Admin Plugin, but I have tried to select the most popular maps and ensure they are in the plugin so you can change the maps via the plugin when you desire to do so.
Lastly, I will need everyone’s SteamID so I can add you to the Mani Admin Plugin so you can administrate the server. Please get this to me as soon as possible so I can finish setting up the CS:S Server and call it complete. Once I have a small group of SteamID’s and I’ve updated the clients list on the Mani Admin Plugin, I will post a brief overview of the Mani Admin Plugin and how to use it. It’s the simplest administration plugin out there and way less complicated than RCON or many other server management tools. If you do not know your SteamID, please go here: http://steamidfinder.com/ and fill out the requested information so you can obtain this ID. You can leave your SteamID in the comments or in the forums as I have posted a new post in the AK907 Members section regarding this. If you do not have access to the forums, just let me know and I can get you set up.
This Week’s Clan Event
This Thursday we will be having another Clan Event. All are welcome to participate and compete for the prize of a week of fame on the home page and bragging rights. This week the challenge is to obtain the BEST K/D RATIO between the hours of 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM this Thursday. I will go through all of the Battle Reports once 11:00 PM rolls around and calculate the best K/D average for all participants who have joined our TeamSpeak server. You MUST join the Clan TeamSpeak server to be eligible to win this event!!!
I’m thinking maybe this Thursday we could hop on the CounterStrike:Source server for a few rounds as well. There are bots on the server, and I actually had a few random’s hop on with me last night while I was testing it out. We had at least 5 rounds of fun before I had to call it a night!
That’s all I have for today, but I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
