If they dont, bring them with you to that server.

It would also be in your benefit to make a free forum for the server and the people who play on it. Run everything from there instead of trying to get people to come here.

Yea I'm already working on a free forum right now, I imagine PbN will be our primary means of communication for awhile until things either get off the ground or crash and burn lol

Well I can probably give you a few bucks for now but come December I may be homeless, jobless, and 40000 dollars in debt with no way of repaying it sooo I wouldn't count on me being a steady contributer.

ninja pmd you.

also, doesnt Gameservers offer free web hosting for every server purchased? we can use that for the server's community site and forum


Oh and for the guy talking about loving rush, i too LOVE LOVE LOVE rush gameplay. but im focusing on 64 players right now (true battlefield) and will simply hope they implement a 64 player rush. i personally think they should, but who knows.

i would like to see something along the following: 64 player conquest and rush // 32 player conquest and rush // 16 player conquest, rush, and squad tdm // 8 player squad tdm??

How much are you looking for as far as donations go? I'd like to help out and get in on this. You can PM me if you prefer.

Free forum? No! Just buy a domain on godaddy, and I'll temporarily host it and we can setup a Wordpress game based page, and PHPBB forum. Do NOT use a free forum or you'll see people bail. Nobody takes those seriously. I can host unlimited sites on my hosting account so it'll be easy to setup overall. All you need is Wordpress for the front page and news, PHPBB for the forums (free), and a script that joins them which is easy.

If the server is constantly populated, like most, I don't have a problem w/ donating but it'll take that first month to find out how the server is because if I don't want to play on it it serves no purpose. I have a feeling, though, just the PBN peeps coming in will keep it partially populated, and if you get a decent initial population in there (w/ a solid server) you can get it moving.

Things you should do before "game release day":
- Come up with a definitive clan name
- Register a domain for the clan and setup a site, forums, etc.
- Get people involved prior (already doing this) and get a solid group setup for release day who are active on your site
- Come up with a good server setup that you can put in your server name in the game browser
- Come up with a good server name that will be easy to spot for people looking for your server (or a populated one).
- Again... get a decent site setup. When you say "X Clan Server - 64 Player Domination - All Maps - Hardcore!" or something like that people are going to right away want to check out your site if they like the server and clan members on it. So have something solid setup, and a way to recruit.

You can hit me up here, or PM me, and discuss the site side of things if you'd like. Throwing up a template modified site for starters, and forums, is pretty easy. Just gotta dedicate the time on it, and make sure the people who are involved w/ your clan are going to use it. If people see a dead site they don't care to join, assist, donate, etc, because its a dying cause.

I think any donation that people can afford is reasonable?



Should be getting some good speeds in game. Glad I finally setup a new network in the house with a repeater.

You can donate as little as $1... every bit helps. The server is $85 a month for 64 slots, even small contributions add up. Thanks to the awesome people who have already donated! We already have a $90 surplus which means we are paid up for 2 months!

I'm not looking to start a clan or any of that, I'm just looking for a place to play with some friends. If you all want to go hardcore and start a clan, help yourselves... I just want a reliable place to play.

I think, from personal experience, it will be a lot harder to keep a long term populated server if you don't have a site/community behind it.

People tend to like their favorite servers because of the connection, playlist, and people who monitor the server and they want to be part of that. Especially with games like Battlefield which are clan heavy.

I hate to say it, but I can't think of one server that wasn't part of a clan I still play on because they quickly desolve into chaos, and you don't have any way to talk with the people behind it.
