Hey guys,
Im sure you all know about the new BF1 by now, we will prob be holding a server for this but before we get to that point we ALL need to talk about the future of our BF4 server.
We would have the option of just moving over but not all of us will have BF1 so it comes down to how long we keep the bf4 server running while we migrate over or we can run both servers, for the latter we would need help in funding the servers as a 50 slot server is not cheap, as it stands we do have some that contrbute to our server, but in general we only have 3 main funders,
If you guys have any thoughts please post here so we can prepare for the new BF1 tital on its release !
Thanks

~Striker

I personally, would wait and see how the beta and release is before picking up a server. for the sole reason of, past beta's and releases of the Battlefield games have been poorly optimized, full of bugs and glitches, and simple poor net-code. So, with that said, my suggestion is this. Do a poll within the group of us after members have played the beta, seen game play footage, the rants, complaints, etc. as for the bf4 server, I don't see, for the time being, game isn't dying out. but possibly add different game modes, like TDM or Rush, into the rotation with Conquest.

I agree I say we try out the beta first and get everyone's opinion before we move forward.

I also concur with what rogue mentioned, right now the server is mainly funded by Rogue, KB and myself, we do have some contributors that chip in from time to time but its mainly us 3.

Remember it doesn't have to be much, even the minimum amount ($5 a month) will help us out a lot, regular contributors will be added to the VIP list, you can read more about it by clicking on the Donations tab

Thanks,
Ice

EA cant afford another game to be a flop, Titanfall, Hardline and starwars all fell just after release.
Hardline was a spin off same as bad company 2 so looking at this next one it has to be the next "big" release same as battlefield 2/3/4.
I boubt they would ever think about using a match making system ( same as titanfall and starwars) as this puts clans out of holding servers as a result the life span of a big release game is short, hardline does have servers but they are small.
Looking back at DoM they still run their BF3 server due to a small part of the clan wanting or only having BF3 and this is fine as it is a popular server, the few players that want the BF3 server make up the monthly fees hence why its still up,
we will see how things pan out, but one thing for sure is Ice wont get BF1 as it will make him feel old

reading a few things has got me concerned is that they may use a "match making" system, if this is the case and is implemented in the new engine then we will not be able to host a server !
I hope they dont but there are too many youngsters complaining about PC servers " High ping players, badmins" ect, match making was implemented for consoles, PC gaming has always had dedicated servers but the new generation are almost dictating the future of PC gaming !

I'm in the wait and see camp as well. In all honesty I probably wouldn't have bought bf4 had I played a demo for a month or so. There are more issues than just the "net code", but that's one that has continuously make me regret getting addicted to this game. One hour of gameplay and I feel totally synced with the server; the next hour I'm dropping dead a full second after taking cover This time around I went ahead and pre-ordered BF1. If it's a heaping pile of garbage I'll request a refund through origin before my time is up. I think it hurts a lot more to have to give the money back than just to hear "I'm not going to buy it" like so many say.

Anyway with that ugliness out of the way; I have HIGH hopes for BF1. I can't wait till the beta opens up so I can hopefully put my fears to sleep.

Beta first impressions:
game runs really smooth, feels a little slow to me, maybe that i need to get used to it, the map thats on beta is huge 7 flags too big for 48 slot looks like it will need 64, now the main thing i noticed and ive heard about is the "invite to party" option, the only time ive seen this is in a match making system for joining a game, but it also has a server browser, so not sure how or if they are going to rent servers, we will see. Will this game have a long shelf life, im not too sure, it is a lot slower as you would expect. ok guys when you get your beta codes thru, shout me for a game and lets see how it feels

just got in to have a round or 2 on full servers, the game is growing on me, may be cos i was 2nd on the scoreboard but yea i getting to like it...
not touched any settings yet running med with everything else on, AA ect dont like motion blur but thats just me, i turn it off in all games
killing someone as a road kill with a horse feels quite good

Problems i have seen is chat window flickers game play feels like im in mud, slow, but the game runs really smooth, had a flickering screen on death (only died 3 times but had it every time) not tried the new nvidia drivers that was release for the beta today tho.
Dont seem like a bad game atm, few more days needed in game first !

100+ fps with ultra, including AA and no blur (was set at auto..) went on an american server, barely saw above 65 fps -.- gameplay seems very pre-order worthy, players are...well, players, some need to be taken out back and shot, some need to understand how a door works >.< a few issues with the deploy button, and solider's belt's being glitchy. but, overall seems so far like a stable beta, even if it just 1 day so far.

the game runs stable for me with no prblems that i have noticed, but ive read a lot of ppl are getting huge frame drops, but it is a beta and not optimised yet, conquest lost me for a bit, I was un aware they remove the "ticket bleed" system, it almost like a new mode, and yes it does feel a bit like BattleFront gameplay, ill hit some rush later today and see how it feels
BTW my soldier is not leveling up ........ ?

EDIT : i have to say, the art work is awsome in this game

Rush feels quite good in bf1, bit like the old BC2 rush, they have the rush servers set on 24 players, i think that 32 would be best placed for this mode, the main thing that would stop me from getting this game would be the lack of clan run servers, its still not been announced as of yet if they will have rentable servers for BF1...........
