i dont have any good ones in the abu's.. not that the abu's look good anyway
With a smiling face like that how could I resist!?
I got to get my K/D up, but I just don't care about it. I am all about the "W" and that ratio is nice. I have been off the field for a while. POW, but I will be back in the next few days.
What rank is that brandon I don't recognise it all or have you blacked it out ? Looks like specialist but not sure.
Ok. Kd now 0.97 almost there...
Nope, I'm not sure how close anything is to plat, probably noobtube next, I been playing a bit of every kit, but I'm sure the PP2000, SVU, and M16 are quite a ways off since that takes 1000.
1000 kills for plat?
would that be 10 gold stars? or are gold stars more than 100 kills?
There isnt 10 gold stars, goes up to 9, the 10th ends up being a platinum star. And all the gadget weapons (knife, m2CG, 40mm GL) get plat starts at 500, granted I got my knife plat at 486...
acctualy its around 990-995 kill for a platinum star with a main weapon
For pistols its 500-600ish for a platinum star
and for knifes its the same.
and for everything else thats not a main assualt rifle or shotgun or the number 1 weapon its 500-600 kills for a platinum star
For me Plats will be Colt .45 1911, Knife, GOL, and then the M416 in that order would be my guess at this point.
And just in case my trend of getting people to use the 40mm Shotgun has waned in my absence, I will be back on the field come Saturday morning.
oh ok cool cool ... i should be getting close to my first platinum then sometime
Holy crap it looks like Dice did something, or TPU's luck has turned around, the VA server has been full for what looksl ike almost 2 hours now (Easy maybe its time to step out of retirement!) and My server had 0 people on it about an hour ago and now it's at 16, and I don't think any of them are from TPU, meaning we are seeing random people joining, which is what we been waiting for.
This might be what we were talking about, a East Coast server, a Midwest Server, and a West Coast server (Marines HC server has been hopping).
2 minutes has passed and 24 now on my server, this feels good, maybe we'll see some more people from TPU start playing again. I haven't looked at the NY server, but I see your in the thread digi, is that getting people in it?
not right now - there were earlier though, which was the first in awhile. let's hope...
I just sent Easy a PM, hopefully this will cheer him up and bring him back.
Wait, wait, wait. Easy has not been on? I was out of town tending to family issues which is why I went POW. Now I am catching up on school work. We need to get Easy back on the field ASAP.
With the recent pop on the Chicago server I am looking for more active mods. Right now the modding is spread a bit thin. I need people who are willing to hop on when the server pop is low and mess around till people join. I have found that if you can get 4 in there, then people trickle in and usually you will see 10 people within an hour, once the magical number of 10 is hit, you go to 25+ within 15 - 30 min. Of coarse mods I will most likely need a donation from, I can't afford to keep the Chicago server up without a few donations, don't need a ton, right now got 1, so toss me a pm if your interested in modding and donating a bit a month to help keep the Chicago server up.
He got down about people complaining about server issues and other things, which makes sense, it sucks when things dont work the way they should, especially when you are paying for them to do so. But maybe if his server keeps filling like this it will cheer him up and motivate him to return.
Well, I can play a little while tonight, but not for long. I will be on more once I catch up with my school work.
I can't always jump on to get it populated, I'd be happy to admin remotely if necessary (my lappy would catch fire if I ran the game but mod tools are ok) just let me know.
Feel free to mod anytime, Only me and Soviet are modding right now. Only thing that really needs to be done is telling people to balance teams and kicking drama queens and spawn campers. I don't believe in holding peoples hands, people should know not to spawn camp, if they are they get kicked, if someone sasses about the ruling, they get kicked, if they return and try a rebuttle, they get banned. That strategy worked great last night ,had a bit of drama, some bannings and kickings and then I was finally able to play the game rather than constantly mod and explain how to walk and breath to some people who are smart asses.
I should like use my mod powers. I will have to download Guardian and ask Easy for the codes and stuff.
well i can mod if u need me
i have not had any time to play BC2 due to a heavy school load going into the last month of classes this semester. plus my wife is acting all wife like and ive got job stuff too. so having all that work to do the last thing i want to deal with is people complaining to me about server performance and what not. on the list of priorities catering to people on here is quite low! however, things should begin to ease up in a couple of weeks for me and i will be able to play again. dont worry, the virginia server is good to go though june. i will evaluate things then.
Hey folks, dunno if any of you guys read about this member created autobalancer. It actually works, but not as you'd expect. What it does is nicely ask members/newest joined to switch sides, a couple of times, gives like 20 seconds or so in between, then kicks you from the server so next time you join, you'll join the side that needs balanced. If you switch teams before, it'll announce teams are balanced. It kinda takes the workload off of admins/mods of servers, runs off your desktop, has a white list for clan members so they don't get kicked, etc. It's currently a beta, but thus far works extremely well!
Anyways, here's the link: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/461184.page
I was playing in a server Triptex was modding, and he was getting frustrated at a group of folks that didn't wanna balance the teams out, in this instance it works well, asks nicely a couple of times, then boots ya...pretty much is an "auto-admin" for "team balance issues" instead of a true autobalance like what we should see from DICE eventually. It runs from desktop, has a settings.ini you edit and is easy as hell to configure. Anyone that runs rcon can run this.
Also if any of you guys are interested in finding a different server, or a TPU server is full or empty, feel free to check out our server, just search for BeerMe (there is a Beer_Me, that's not us). We've gotta 20 man server, and it'd be nice to get a few more people on here and there, we're not hardcore, we play to have fun, and as long as you play legit we're good!
The official server name is BeerMe BFBC2 USA. We generally play Rush, sometimes Conquest, just depends on what we're in the mood for. I have found some more time this week to play more so I have a few TPU servers in my fav's, but if my clanmates are on and there's more than a 3v3 situation, I'm on our server.
I can mod/donate if you like.
