Servers costs varies with the size of server we would get. I'm pushing supa for a 64 player server, which would round out to somewhere around $80 a month apparently(Compared to $100/3mo for a 32 player server), and there's already three people willing to support such a server. Hence if we have 5 people, the monthly cost would be $16 each. I also suggested paid VIP slots (something like $5/mo for guaranteed access to the server, especially for HWCers who want to help, but don't want to lay down a large amount of cash.)

I can host a TS/Vent server EASILY at my work, we don't have to pay for something like that.

Supa is taking point on this though, and probably knows more/better.

I'd potentially be interested if HwC Platoon actually plays like an actual team (haven't had the chance to play BF3 beta yet) instead of just going off and everyone doing their own thing. Ultimately I want to play team based and people playing their roles.

I cant agree more, This is why we have squads, To play as one.

A few medics, Assualts, Engineers, working together = Unstoppable team.

From my limited military knowledge, a Platoon is suppose to consist of 2-4 squads which contain 16-50 soldiers. What they want to do is make it a HwC team in a sense, with people working together in what BF calls squads (which are normally called fire teams, which a squad makes up several of them)

I'd be willing to chip in $10-15 a month. Looks like some West Coast folks are in, so I'd have someone to play with. (Nothing against you EST folks, but I don't usually play until the kids are in bed, around 8:00 PST/11:00 EST.)
