    The EA Main servers either went down for Maintenance or they just Effed up and finally died.:nutkick:

    I agree and disagree. In a 32 player server with resonably even teams 2 choppers usually won't be in the air all that long. Players should be capping flags and helping their team but I do feel that vehicle theft is legitimate and at times an integral part of the BF experience (all personal opinion). The point I wanted to discuss was the differnce between base rape and theft.

    With that said in a smaller server if Haru and I get our hands on both choppers the server will likely just empty out.

    I actually wonder how a 32 player game where base rape is allowed would look like. I mean, it isn't all that hard to defend against base rape if you got 2~3 players defending the base + surroundings. It would make the game a bit more interesting.

    However, I hate both base rape, vehicle theft, and anything of the sort (ie: sniper sniping from outside the base but waits when the person takes one step out of the base and snipes).

    Last time I played on the TPU server, I got base raped only once, but it was super douchebag. He put an AT mine right under a vehicle... His name was Ogor. Apart from bring a heli or tank or hellfire strikes on the base, AT mine is righ there on the top

    Even in a full server with decent teams, with 2 choppers patrolling B pretty well on Atcama, that map can get locked down. I think that the smoke ability has way too short of a cooldown on it. I'm pretty damn good with tracers, but getting a great pilot twice within that cooldown window is far from easy. If that was changed to a longer cooldown, then I wouldn't mind it so much.

    Also the fact that the AA gun is in a valley, and snipers on A or C can basically score a free headshot on you.

    I don't mind theft from bases that aren't yours. But generally, bases are a ways out from a flag, and it's a waste of time to venture out that far. I'd rather lay mines down and the opposing teams first base and watch them run them over. Then get afraid to even drive up there, then the base is all yours.

    I agree on the cool down time being too short. At times I feel invincible but the AT4 is still effective in the right hands and it only take 2 tank gunners to effectively ruin a chopper in 60s.

    We do have a TPU server. Search "TPU:" in the server browser and you'll find it. ;)

    Does Wiz approve this ?

    Why not write some plugin or a web service to attach it on tpu.com ?

    The website is for the TPU BC2 Server. It came with the Server. And Why would Wiz have to approve? Does Wiz own/rent the server?

    Dunno I'd just ask him for his opinion maybe he'd plug it into the tpu.com instead of tpu.somewhereovertheinternet.com where nobody will visit.

    Still i wonder why the fuss? It is the site for the Server. It is a server hosted by Nuclear Fallout. It is provided by Nuclear Fallout and I am renting it. Technically, it is a CiO server.
    If you do not want a TPU BC2 server then say so. The site is primarily for posting the stats and donating. It would link to Techpowerup for forums and such. But, if you don't want it, say so and I will give it to MIA or some other group on Xfire.

    I'm not saying it cant be done, but if you want to use the TPU name then you really need to get permission to do so.

    Actually, it appears the domain "tpu.com" is currently unused and available for purchase.
    Maybe Wiz should purchase it.
