    Well we had a few fun games till I got booted from a server. I was something like 24/0 with the Bradley on Leguna Presa, and we were only like 3 minutes into the round. I went down from the top bad and their tank was there, killed it at C, then capped C, then moved up to A, killed more, capped A. Then C was flashing, so started heading back that way, killing people along the way. Seen a bunch of people on a hill, just ripped them up, one came down to C4 me, Marine got him. Then I got booted and the message was. "GO TO FLAG". Even though the map had only been going for 3 min and I already capped 2 flags.

    Then they killed ufgy20 (a friend if you havent played with him, he wears TPU tags, but mostly just lurks), server mods killed him for spawn killing when he was in the dead center of the map heading to flag B. Marine got in an argument with them, basically seems server mods got owned and weren't happy. Funny thing is, one of their server mods spent the 2 previous maps camping as a Sniper, never once went on a flag.

    Good times, got to love server bans for wrecking peoples KDR.

    Which Hosting provider is best?

    Ok, so Im going for a 3 month rental of a 24-32 man server. Which provider is best? I was thinking a Dallas or Chicago server. I would like to stay under 100. I found Hypernion (sp?) and Xfactor and Art of War. Which is best for bang/buck?:confused:

    most the TPU folk in the US would be able to connect to Dallas or Chicago just fine. Kurgans server was in Chicago and only had a 10 ms difference than most Dallas servers...from the LA area.

    Dallas would be better for me. I sometimes have issues with east coast servers.

    do a bit of research. find out what they run their servers with. I have seen more and more severs that just don't have the hardware to keep up with a full 32 man game.

    Avoid, avoid and avoid.

    If you really want a good GSP scope out Nuclear Fallout. 32 player servers with vehicles and destruction require significant resources to run adequately. Nobody likes rubberbanding and ping spikes. NFO doesn't overload their boxes and they use Internap bandwidth which is the best. You can test one of their servers by simply searching for NFO in the server browser.

    Good Company Gaming in Chicago is one of my favorite servers to play on because it's an NFO...the registration is always great and there's no delay between a kill and the death animation (which you'll typically see on bad servers after the R8 patch).

    I think 24 should be sufficient... depends on the price difference though

    price indeed. if it's significant, go with 24 man, if not, go for 32.

    *edit- just noticed that this thread absorbs more than %10 of all clubhouse posting. good work guys.

    No problem...but to be fair, now that I think about it I can't say for sure how Art of War BC2 servers are. Hypernion is the WORST, XFactor has not been good and Gameservers varies from terrible to ok depending on location. I lopped AoW in there because I tried a UT2k4 server with them years ago and it sucked big time.

    What seems to happen with BC2 servers is the longer the match goes on the more stressed a server will become. So some servers will be fine for the first 200 tickets or so and be a rubberband fiesta by the end. Try playing on a high ticket Oasis or Atacama server to get an idea of this.

    When is that server going up ? Is it going to be hardcore ? Vietnam too? Just curious.
    Thanks by the way and even though I'll get raped I'll probably still join. :roll:

    I will tolerate a lot in a game, but when people go out of their way to be useless, pisses me off. I just played with one of the worst teams ever twice today. When then entire rest of my team's total kills is only 5 higher than my kills alone, we have a problem. These were quality idiots that seem to be testing the theory you can win a round of Battlefield without shooting people. Snipers hiding in extreme low traffic areas defending locals that aren't flags, people in tanks not shooting at engineers 2 feet in front of them because they are trying to snipe some guy 200m away, name some dumb shit and they did it.

    And while I got some help from Red Tango later, it wasn't enough. Rage quit, you damn right I did....twice.

    I got on briefly just now, killed and was killed by Rad_Ed and BlackHaru, and jumped off because I need sleep. The connection is really good and the people aren't too bad. :)

    Killer_Rubber_Ducky, I'd recommend at least 2 others admins besides yourself.

    It was funny watching a guy talk smack at Haru like he didn't have connections. Did he not see the [TPU] tag or something?
