    ive become a recon whore with the auto shotty
    ivegot it down now so when we are trying to blow up the m-com stations I just jihad it. plant my c4 and pull the trigger, wait for spawn and do it again

    I destroyed every m-con station there is all by myself a few times now.

    did it in record time today. probly took 10-15min total to win the entire map.

    also, of note, when i being to lease the bc2 server i will create a separate clubhouse thread for people who want to be a part of the action. unless kurgan is up to me PMing him all the time with server info and server member names.

    those that make an initial donation of 10 dollars get admin access. i figure a good server needs at least 1 mod on it all the time. obviously that isnt possible right now. i am shooting for 5 other people to be mods. these people should be older folks like myself (out of college holding a job) who enjoy team based gaming and take pride in being a part of a clan. they should also have the know how to run an admin panel to kick abusive players. other thoughts... it will be a 32 man server, if you initially donate 5 dollars you get a reserved slot, so you can play on the server whenever you wish and it will kick someone if it is full.

    once the server is established after a week or so when the game goes live in march i will begin processing TPUers who wish to play but cannot immediately donate. i sympathize with folks who would rather not spend the cash to play on a server. i want to make this a TPU friendly server so we can all play together and have a good time. obviously this is all still in the planning stages but i really hope i can get something up and running for us all :rockout:

    :shadedshu I'm sorry I have to say this, but C4 zerg is skillless. It's a good way to remove the fun from an entire round, I did it one round to get my point across that it was retarded (since the other team was doing it) and the 1st time I tried it I also blew up every single crate and they cried, next round they didn't do C4 lameness again. It's just no fun, especially when 4 - 5 people do it, with 1 person you can stop them hopefully, but 4 - 5 might be hard to kill them all and defend both crates.

    Im fine with PM's would make it easier to keep in 1 spot anyways, I'll prob toss you a bit when taxes arrive, that is if it's a CTF server, I'm really not much for Crates, but maybe they just make their servers run all game types random, I guess I'm not sure.

    i will be able to decide what game modes i want the server to run. so if the server gets more players on a certain mode i can just leave it on that mode. and then when we all want to play together i can change it or an admin can change it.

    trip, you would be a perfect admin. also, if your friend who played MWLL with us wants in let me know. mailman already told me he is in and i believe he wouldnt mind helping admin as well.

    I'll ask him.. he is definitely playing BC2 almost every day. I'll see if he wants in.

    Also, please note: I will NOT be kicking players for not using mics.
    :toast:

    I think it is important that we as a group make a conscious decision to balance the teams on the [TPU] server. To keep the server populated we should try to limit team stacking of our members so the pubs keep coming back to enjoy the game with us. Of course when the teams are well balances by skilled pubs we will be able to stack up and play some good rounds.

    very true. i think at first it is important to be inclusive and just let people play and get used to the game. once we get all established i think we should make an effort to contact other clans and see if they want to setup a match against us. i would also encourage us to get into some sort of clan tournament.

    It think the best place to start is right where we are.. as a club. Will should still rock the [TPU] tags and host a well admin'd server If things pick up steam in the future I don't see any reason why we couldn't look for ladders and have scrims.

    Also, what do you think W1zzard's stance on us forming [TPU] clans is. There is still a chance that he might not approve.

    I'd be up for being an admin myself, and agree that we can't just stack, I need a shot at some of your guys dog tags anyways right? But remember if your paying to play, try and play on the TPU server exclusively, if we don't keep a good amount of TPUers in there right off the bat, people will breeze by i on the list since the room isnt populated well. So if your paying or even if you aren't make it a point to play in the server.

    i just got off the phone with a sales guy from myinternetservices.com he was very helpful and answered all my questions.

    he said yesterday they had 250 preorders for servers :eek: that was only yesterday and that is just one host provider :eek: he agreed with me that a lot of people are coming over from MW2 because they are pissed at IW and hate not having dedis. so we are really looking at an awesome PC user base for this game.

    although i wont have access to any admin panel until march 2, i will go ahead and preorder the server probably 2 weeks in advance. the sales guy told me on march 2 i will have full access to their mod panel (apparently hosts are still putting together a really nice modcp for this game) and will be able to setup admin hierarchy and reserved slots and everything.

    so i am excited to get this ball rolling. i dont think w1z wil have any issue with a tpu clan because i think it will draw attention to his already famous website. as long as we dont suck :roll:

    Sounds like all good news too me! And from the people I played with so far here, everyone has been great, usually seemed anyone from here is right on the top of the scoring list.

    well when the rest of your team is statwhoring the tanks, what else can you do. no one moves up. just sitting there in the tanks out of range collecting points. So usually im left by myself rushing the shit out of it with the c4.

    Its easy to defend if people were smart, guard the m-com stations and stop statwhoring with snipers, tanks and helis.

    When the time comes, let us know where to send the money!

    I’ll spend 90% of my time on the TPU server and 10% on one EGO CTF server (if they get dedicated servers for this game). I played solely on EGO servers in COD MW and TF2 (2.5 years) so I know they are a bunch of good gamers and guys to play with.

    I like playing with people who are active so hopefully our server pop is naturally always high.

    You can count me in for a TPU clan! If possible I will donate for the server hosting. How would donations for the server be made?

    Also, 1kurgan1 add me to the club, Nick89 in game BlackFallout Recon/engineer

    donations would be made as a "gift" via paypal to me. i will provide that information in a couple of weeks when i start leasing the server.

    btw, i havnt yet prepurchased this game. i am playing the beta using a key i got. so my question is, should i prepurchase through steam or go prepurchase from gamestop. i am more inclined toward steam but THEY NEVER have the game available when they say they will. atleast with gamestop i can drive down to the store and pick it up in the morning...

    @Easy Rhino

    I have no need for admin powers, unless I happen to be the only one of us on the server (which i doubt would happen).
    i would pay just to know I have a good server with low lat to call home, with a reserved slot.
    good?

    edit: I'm more than willing to take on the responsibility if it's necessary, but it sounded as though you already had Admins worked out.
    true afa Steam goes. My nearest gamestop is 45 minutes away, so I use Steam regardless. but we always get it after retail, normally by a little after noon, but sometimes up to days late.
    a lot of that has to do with the individual company though, and I'm hoping that because they have been doing beta through Steam they will stay involved, and possibly let us have it near on time.
    wishful thinking probably - so if you are driving past a gamestop anyway, for the 6-12 hour difference it could make it may be worth it.

    I am willing to donate to the server. I can't do admin right now with school and work, there is just not enough time for me to admin anything.

    And Kurgan add a /Assault to my name on the list.

    Rocking the tags! :rockout:

    The idea of the server is sounding great, I think I have added all of you on my players list now, I will check when the members list gets updated :)

    See you in game.
