    Hi Guys

    I know you currently have a ranked Multiplay server for an unofficial AVforums clan. Reading through the main thread for this and also my experience of being on your server is that it's empty most of the time.

    The clan I am in www.imgoingin.co.uk also have a ranked Multiplay server and we also have the problem of it being empty quite often. We are thinking of getting rid of it but I thought I would see if you guys that currently pay for the server would be interested in a server share.

    Checked with our clan leader and the Multiplay server is currently £75 a month. Would you be interested in splitting the cost between ourselves? So we just have to find £37.50 a month and we still get to have a ranked server. Plus the chances are higher that it will be full more often.

    Let me know.

    Thanks
    Greg :)

    Its an idea Greg. I feel a bit miffed about BF2 as I never got the chance to put any time in on it ( 9hours worth I think in total). This is becoming an increasing problem for me what with family and work commitments.

    My gaming is suffering. This is after I just spent a grand upgrading my PC and display.

    I see the problems with the idea. I used to be in a clan and organising the people is a nightmare

    The idea is great but either too many people turn up on match day or not enough people turn up

    Practise sessions are also ignored mostly by people as there is no point behind them

    You want to organise people into teams so they get used to playing in the same team every week - not playing with different people every week

    Also get some competitions going. Say best of 3 games team 1 v team 2 and the winning team gets a prize of some sort

    I am interested, really as I play this game nearly everyday.
    Problem for me is that since im in Japan its almost impossible to play on UK servers. Asia or West coast US is my limit.

    Thanks AML, I appreciate why you can't play on a UK server.

    You misunderstand z5461313, I am not interested in sorting out matches, practicing or organising people. I just want to see if the people who pay for the current AV Forums ranked multiplay server want to share the cost with my clan and maybe get a joint server more active. We would still be two seperate clans, just sharing a server.

    If people are interested in joining the clan I am in, that would be great. post at out forums on www.imgoingin.co.uk

    But I was really posting for a server sharing proposal.

    What do the guys who currently pay for the server think?

    Greg

    Hi Reznor, most of our clan is at work (including me) so yes, the server will be empty now!

    We are usually on most nights except for Saturday. But echoing what I have already said above if we can't get a game going we will find a server which does. My Xfire ID is Greg1978. If you add me, you can see when I am online and chat, or meet for a game etc. This applies to anyone else who is interested.

    We play actively as a clan in ED (enemy down) for counter strike source too :D Although our recent performances haven't been as good in cs:s as we have in bf2 (currently 5th :smashin: ). We are always on the look out for quality players to join our roster. Come and have a game on out 100 tick rate server whenever you feel like it (ip below).

    Arrrgh, this game is driving me insane!

    Ok, keep calm...

    Deep breaths...

    For the love of christ why does this game reset all my key settings???
    I spend ages setting the keys only for them to be reset when I exist the game.

    I updated the game to the 1.03 patch.

    I connected to my very first game on the net only to realise I was going nowhere.

    Greg I'll try your server listed, I'm ulysses05 by the way.

    Don't want to state the obvious, but you are putting the 16667 in the box below the server IP right?

    Just found out that the AVForums server is dead anyway, so no chance of a server share if you currently aren't paying anything.

    Anyway, if anyone at all is interested in joining a BF2 (or CS:S) clan, please have a look at our forums at www.imgoingin.co.uk and post in our recruitment section. We would welcome more members. We are a friendly and welcoming clan, we play quite often on line and usually have 1-2 BF2 matches per week. We have a very wide age range, so all ages welcome from about 16 to whatever.

    Thanks
    Greg
