Yes the server will be chicago, and we need to know everyone who is committed to splitting the costs of the server, it's down to around $25 a person right now. We will most likely be ordering the server in the next day or two.

Yes clanforge is essentially RCON. the same tools that were used in BC2. I should have more details by the time the wkd rolls around. If you guys want GGC streaming you'll have to apply asap. Looks like there won't be battlerecorder on release but there's people working around that right now. we may have a solution. and for anyone in Alberta/B.c Chicago pings between 70 and 85 which is more than decent.

My funds are limited, but I would pitch in and my roommate may do as well, providing we knew we'd have reserved slots.....

And I wouldn't be able to play until 8PST like SugarJ.

I believe that anyone who contributes funds will get reserved spots. And a fair number of the committed "sponsors" are from the West so there should be some of us to play with/against. I'm assuming that there will be lots of folks playing who might not want to chip in, too.

I think there's 9 of us so far who have agreed to share the cost for a 3 month sub for a 64 man server. Anyone that wants to chip in a few bucks and help the cause is more than welcome. PM supaflyx3 or headsh0t, they are the ones arranging it.

Replied to PM's. We will be ordering the server this weekend so the finalized amount of funds needing to be contributed to will be known. As it looks now, with the interest we have, it should for sure be below $25 per person for the 3 month rental on a 64 player. If any more people would like to help out we may be able to get below $20 per person. Thanks guys

Can this server be in Chicago, or somewhere central? Or is it gonna be on the West Coast?

Just let us know who to make EMT/paypal out to and the final amount. I imagine we'll get a handful more :)

Headsh0t will be PMing everyone who is committed after the server has been ordered with EMT/paypal details.

Reserved spot is nice. Does this also include some admin abilities for undesireables?
