    So, it seems that if you let your server lapse someone else can take it over. Your settings are saved but if there are no servers available then you cannot renew it.

    For a company like EA, you'd think that letting potential profit slide would be a sin. Not in this case they, they cannot feed the demand so they're losing out. Makes no sense!

    Server is live!

    What a coincidence, I post on Battlelog and all of a sudden I can renew the server :D

    Right, who wants to definitely part with some cash then? :D

    Once I know how many, I can divvy it up.

    Hardcore settings
    Conquest

    Map roatation:

    Kharg Island
    Operation Firestorm
    Gulf of Oman
    Wake Island
    Seine Crossing

    These are the "default" but I would not mind saving another couple of profiles to include Rush/TDM.

    I'd like to have any changes go through me, for consistencies sake, but if you put money towards, you will have full admin rights and be able to kick/ban players.

    I've had a look at the server a couple of times lately and there was only a couple of players on it??

    Yeah, it needs people on it constantly to build up a following. I've hardly played the past few days and same with the other guys. When it was first up, it was rare for it to be empty.

    Ill put in some dosh.

    Got fucking teamkilled for a tank last night :mad:. Killed him back, then we made up by constantly reviving each other.

    Its a right pain in the arse to try and kill your own team member when you're trying hard though..... I even tried to revive him in order to kill him, but then I got shot before having a chance to kill him.

    In the end I had to spawn behind the git to do the deed :mad:

    I've got about 6 non ODD players who play regularly, so Ill get them to play on there.

    OK, so far it's:

    Me
    Kav
    Lowsta
    KE
    Sim
    DCB

    £42.50 for 90 days so that's £7.50 each (rounded down).

    Let me know how you guys want to send the cash. I've got a paypal account.

    Did you get your headset sorted? I remember us playing BC2 and it stopped working?

    I got BF3 a couple of weeks ago and loving it so far! I'm happy to chuck some cash into a server!

    (I'm playing on the PC though, can I still join in?)

    TitanSound Mr Beardy Drummer

    Sorry mate, this is on the 360 :(

    A few guys here play on PC though, Pingu & Firks spring to mind readily.

    You should all have server admin access now. Let me know if any problems!! But please be mindful, only kick someone if they are obviously being a dick or teamkilling for vehicles etc. I want it to be a server which people come back to because we're not like 95% of the cunts out there that ban you for killing them on their own server.

    Also, what night would be good for "practice"? Really want to get some matches if possible. Could even switch the server to Squad Deathmatch for the night?

    Mid week or Sunday afternoons tend to be good for me.

    Yeah, Wednesday's seem to be the best day for me.

    It would be ideal if we could get at least 8 people. 2 squads on the same side or opposing sides if the server is empty/not heavily populated.

    I might/might not be. Depends on if I have to do a last minute gig or not.

    A question for the helicopter pilots...

    I've never bothered with trying to fly them as I would be taking the place of someone much better than me but now I've practicied flying the AH-1Z on the ODD server I'm getting much better.

    Do they all fly the same or does each one have it's own characteristics?

    Some are a little clumsier than others, the little bird is very nimble but can fall over quite easily too. (PC flying with mouse n keyboard).
  23. sim667

    Different characteristics.

    Littbirds - very nimble, tend to be for lower range, kill troops and light armour. A little bit quicker than the ones where others control the gattling guns. Very easy to land on small buildings and drop people off.

    The ones with the side guns - quite slow but good for carrying lots of people, easier to hover that gunships, but a bit slower turning.

    Gunships - very fast, and can go high in comparison to the others, you can point straight up or down, but don't try a loop the loop, god knows I've tried. It's got long range weapons so you can pop up from behind stuff, destroy and depart very quickly. Most of the time you will get involved in fights with the other teams gunship.

    Think about how you can duck behind scenery to avoid getting locked onto from the side, and using the environment. Practice manoeuvres and landing. If you can land and repair a helicopter it will last longer.

    With every BF game, the best way is to throw them around, see what the limits are. Checking how much you have to counter any sharp movements you make to get back on track is also a useful way of knowing the limits of what you can do. As Sim said, practice going low and fast so you know how to handle it when being locked on to. Knowing the maps also helps, knowing that you can fly low over a certain part and not smash into any lamp posts helps :)

    The biggest mistake I see chopper pilots make is flying high and slow. Everyone that can lock onto you will try, and probably succeed, in bringing you down.

    I find air to air battle against other choppers tedious sometimes though. You're forced into matching their altitude and if you have shit jet pilots on your team, the other teams pilots will be after you like a dog on heat. And I would say that you're at a disadvantage at this stage in the game. The ECM jammer is the best anti lock tool as it breaks both heat and laser locks. Flares now only distract the missile but don't break the lock. Sometimes not at all with Javelins. I got some mint kills the other night with Mr Kav using the SOFLAM on Kharg rush.

    Best setup is pilot with either Stealth or Air Radar, Air to Air missiles and ECM jammer.

    Gunner with Autoloader, flares, guided missile. The flares are good as a second line of defence if your getting locked onto by multiple targets. By the time the flares are released, the ECM will have recharged.

    Communication is also key. If I'm piloting with someone I cannot talk to, dead meat most of them time. But with communication, you can be a flying angel of death raining down fire upon the poor sods below :)

    Oh and we really, really need to get together and get the server active. It's breaking my heart seeing it empty all the time.

    We just need to use it more often. 4 player start limit so not too bad. But we need it to be populated so people keep coming back when they realise we're not a bunch of cry baby cunts and just want to have fun playing the game with teamwork :)
