I like the sound of this. Recognise the map in the picture, it was a lot of fun in BF2.

Great, did some reading, dont get too excited.

DICE are apparently running at a loss and EA are preessuring them to roll out new games fast. That means minimal investment in testing and development, sound familiar.

Heres at least 2 projects they have to complate before BF3.

Battlefield - Bad Company 2 - the first one is as buggy and glitchy as you can get apparently and was a spin off for PS3, now the second one is for PC as well, confused?

Battlefied 1943 - More of the same as the MOHAA etc crossed over with BF2 and similar map locations.

And prob other things. Apparently EA is broke, others say they reported good figures.

The talk I read is basically going along the lines of them forcing DICE to roll out game after game with the absolute minimum of finishing and testing to maximise profits, so it seems you server admins can look forward to your continuing full time job of keeping the monkeys at bay.

Tell you what though, not sure what the 43000000 kills thing is about but this looks a hell off a lot of fun, no qeue jumping, everyone gets a plane!

I loved all the BF1942 games they rocked and I spent a few hours in the coral sea map, was great fun on the AA guns on the carrier and being tail gunner in the bombers!
You could even repair the damage done to your carrier!!!!
This just looks like a spam fest, but we'll see.
Arrrr the jet packs you got in one of the expansion's were fantastic!!!(Secret weapons)

It a big problem with trying to make a game work on all formates someone misses out.
Will helpfully be and much better game made for PC.

I'd be keen for some 42 action!!!!!

Oh yeah Mo's a hack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That would be a totally different server and double our costs! Not happening!

1943 Iwo Jima looks fun, also I do believe Battlefield Heroes still has a lot of problems as well (I get server auto-kicked everytime since the new patch).

Five bucks EA will ruin BF3 by putting it on to consoles. And EA pretty much does ANYTHING for money. Goldeneye: Rouge Agent is a good example, it was made out of some guy's Bond fanfic. Seriously. For a mere cash-in attempt. On the other hand Timesplitters: Future Perfect is fantastic and so is 2142.

Game servers are expensive things, in that most clans who run their own fund them in house so to speak. I know roughly the costs SAF will be paying for their one and I must say I'm impressed at your dedication. One game at a time is totally understandable. Its like the old saying, you can only drive one car at a time lol.

SAF originally moved from BF2 to 2142 didnt you, how long did you run BF2 and how long do you anticipate running 2142 before you consider your next choice? If you dont mind me asking? :)

Most of the clan have BF2 and played it for years but we were never a BF2 clan... born from 2142. Who knows what the next server will be!
