Hi there other BF fans.

 

Will there be a BF1 server? This game is gona rock as how it looks now in my eyes, much better feelings about it than BF3 and 4.

 

What you guys think?

All BF4 servers are much costly. If community comes up with donation yes. 

 

Thing is people will buy it for 50$ once it's released but when it comes to donation only few decide to donate. We had BF3 when it was released and no member played on it much so we had closed it down. 

 

Maintaining + populating server is not an easy task. If someone wants to donate and take charge of it, feel free to PM me.

Cost means - Every server is not free. You will have to pay GSP xx amount for xx slots. xx is variable. So 50$ every month additional on our current expense is tough for me right now. I don't have any room. If someone is willing to donate - Please let me know. We can work something out. 

 

Maintaining - You will have to configure server, maintain it i.e. any issues comes up be ready to fix it - it might be midnight or during when you are sick. You got to get on IIRC and contact the staff for the host to fix it fast. You also need to maintain add-ons and keep up with latest changes. 

 

For the first time since 2008, I have slacked on ET servers update i.e. silEnT mod update on all servers. That tells me enough, that I don't have any extra time right now. So if some one is willing to do it, I am all for the support. 

 

Populating - That's the big game. You need to put shit load of effort without giving up. You need to plan on how you are gonna make it popular and recruit members/players who will help along the way. Now let's say if 50 people said they will help you only 1-5 will do if you are lucky. You need to stay put, focused and be in contact with all for the first 3-4 months. 

 

I hope that gives answer to your question.

Yes it does.

My other question is .... BF is a game that FA would like to have ? Is this a game that could be considered for the future of FA ?

Also we have an Insurgency server ... if we have effort to do ... we could be better to concentrate on populating that server first cuz i went back to that game yesterday since Shoes ask for help in recruiting there.

Alright up :

 

I gave BF 1 a try, I strongly suggest you guys do the same.

I know it costs quite a lot. (arround 40€ = 47$) but I think it worths it.

(I could also share my account)

BF 1 looks VERY appealing to me, though some things which hold me back paying THAT much money for a FPS with a single player campaign of only ~5hours.

 

Although I've heard BF 1 does not support third party servers, meaning they only run official servers and so we couldn't set one up even if we wanted to. (I'm not a 100% sure about this)

No, that means we can only rent servers from EA. It may cost a lot

That could be worth it to rent BF1 servers at some point.

 

But not now, not enough "control" is given to the renter.
