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:
- 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
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!
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! 😀
[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!
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:
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!
