Hello everyone, and thanks for taking a look! Today’s post is going to go over last week’s Clan Event winner, tonight’s weekly clan event, our Battlefield 4 Giveaway, and meeting news from this Sunday’s [AK907] Clan Meeting, so thanks for reading!
[AK907] Clan Meeting

Last Sunday’s clan meeting went very well with about 8 people joining us for the meeting and providing great feedback about the questions we had!
During the meeting we were able to discuss financials, giveaways, server population, and YouTube videos.
- [AK907] will be discontinuing the use of it’s 48 slot Battlefield 3 server at the end of this month and using the cost of that server toward purchasing Battlefield 4 for our members.
- We will be giving away Battlefield 4 to our donating members, per the outcome of:
- Server population (who is on the [AK907] Clan Server the most?) – 30-70%
- In-Game (Battlefield 3) Goals (most headshots, or something along those lines) – 20-40%
- Anything else we want to factor in? – Remaining percentage
- Trying to populate the [AK907] Clan Server more with giveaways and a new map rotation for the 24 man server
- If you record videos, we have obtained credentials for a Mega account and you can use them to upload your videos so Gr0wzy can edit them together. Please do your best to ensure these videos are at least preliminarily edited (meaning you’re only uploading the section of the videos that you want to be edited/merged with other Clan players). I’ve been using Microsoft’s Movie Maker to edit the AVI files output from Bandicam and have been cutting out all of the “in-between” stuff on my bad runs to get to the good ones. I believe AVIDemux is another one that could be used (free – GNU) Check the forum post here for the credentials to Mega.
Last Week’s Winner
Last week we had an ok event with 3 people stopping by for some kills. I thought I was going to take the win this time, but TheGermanR00ster came through and completely blew me out of the water in the realm of “General Score” with one game, and he played several like that!
TheGermanR00ster ended up walking away with the week of fame (5th time he’s won – WOW!) after obtaining 59,165 General Score in just 7 GAMES! Congrats to you, R00ster, and the best of luck to everyone for this weeks event!
Tonight’s Clan Event
Tonight is going to be an interesting one for sure! I’m trying a new method of scoring and I’m hoping it gives us a little more flexibility in terms of determining a winner. Tonight’s challenge is to have the BEST 3-GAME AVERAGE KILLS between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM tonight. The way this is going to be calculated I will be putting everyone’s KILLS for EACH GAME they play between the time frame into a spreadsheet. These kills are obtained by going to the players Battlelog page and clicking on EACH of the games they’ve played in the last 7 hours (11:00 PM minus 7 hours = 4:00 PM) and pulling their “Kills” from those reports. Then, my spreadsheet will take take the TOP THREE games for ALL of the players that were in TeamSpeak and averaging them (Add them all together and divide by 3). The player with the highest AVERAGE from their top 3 games will win this weeks event.
Make SURE you join us on TeamSpeak for our Weekly Clan Events, as this is the ONLY way you are entered for a chance to win the weekly prize of a week of fame on our [AK907] Clan home page. A reminder that this event is open to ANYONE who is on our Official TeamSpeak 3 server (not just clan members!), so click the TeamSpeak 3 picture below to join up!
I think this new method of scoring will not only give me a chance to see how it will work and if it should be used in the future, but also I’m hoping it will “broaden the audience” so more people that enter have a chance to win. Instead of Gr0wzy and R00ster taking all the wins, and while there’s no problem with that at all, I just would like to see everyone that plays have a fair chance at winning. This way, if one person only hops online for 3 rounds, the people that are online from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM don’t just blow them completely out of the water.
Good luck to all for tonight’s event!
That’s all I have for today, but keep an eye out for news about the Battlefield 4 Pre-Order GIVEAWAY in the coming weeks.
See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
