I think if you just change the background image on the website it would look a lot nicer, and can you pick something that will stretch to 2560x1440? the image is small and has a huge border around it now.

Will update the front page when I have some more information on new tournament or if someone is going to be trying to run weekend events. Easy.

Angry - I recall your original post was redoing the website. I am open to trying new designs, but we aren't going to go back to a specialized setup like IPBoard and hosting our own stuff. Why? Well look what happened when Dyn00 wanted to walk away, no one else here readily knew how to step into that, as well as, it wasn't easily transferable. So, although this website/forum is very simplistic, it is easy for anyone to figure out, can be transferred easily, can be updated easily, etc.

-background: most people don't run resolutions that high. Hard to correct for the ever changing capabilities of monitors.... But, I am willing to bet that most of us don't run past 1080.

I'm not going to re-post my message. Here's what we need to know.

There are several BF servers left. 1/2/4/5/9/10......

Which servers is the community not really interested in:

2 Rush HC (up for removal)
4 Normal Rush (up for removal)
5 CQ HC Base maps (up for removal)
9 HC Infantry (hate to consider it for removal, but it seems interest has dropped)

In my opinion, nobody in the community likes playing in the Normal server. In fact, ever since it became "mandatory" to seed #4 for seeding perks, interest seems to have dropped for seeding parties.

Server 2 is another server that struggles to populate even when you drop 20 members in at once.

I hate to say this because Server 9 is my all time favorite just like how Server 3 was, but it looks like it might need to go away if we aren't seeing it get populated even with all the changes we've made to it.

Agreed Cuban except for #9. Having an all infantry map is a great change up fro a lot of our players. I know many people can't get through the day without spamming tank fire but 9 is a great break from the armor. If it needs to be seeded more then lets do it IMO.

i agree with most of what Cubano said EXCEPT!!!!!!!!!!!! id love to be able to hold on to server 9, even tho it's not always populated, it is still my favorite. Maybe it will stay more full if seeders only have to seed 1/9/10... hopefully optimistic

I'm also going to agree that we should try to hang on to server 9. Though it doesn't really populate by itself it gets going pretty quick with a few seeders. I would be willing to help start seeding parties to take some of the burden off of Cuban and Bizzle.

The others are kind of just collecting dust at this point though.

should just drop it down to 1, 5 and 9 and make them all 60Hz servers, should be able to afford it with the savings on the others right?

I was going to ask if some servers have higher tick rates than others because it definitely seems as though the hit reg on server #2 is better than #10. maybe it's just in my head though.

Anyway I'd hate to see #2 go, but honestly it's pretty much gone already

Please keep #10. It's still popular and full during the day.

10 isn't on the chopping block. We aren't giving up on #2 just yet.... But the people who want it haven't really stepped up to help populate it. That makes it extremely difficult.

we did try 60Hz on 9 at one point and it didnt work out. the reg just didnt work well. Id say to leave server 9 where it is at 50Hz

I've played on other 60Hz CQ Large servers and seemed like every TV missile I fired was so easy to control, almost all hits. I really feel like 60Hz is the way to go, can we at least make #5 60 since it hardly has "water" maps.

Nooooo, 60hz is a complete disaster at least in regards to 64 player conquest.  It was tried on Server 1, even going down to 45hz at some point, and the experience was just awful.

I've tried playing on a sever running at 120hz and god damn that was a nightmare for both myself and my CPU. Never tried 60hz or anything beyond 30-50hz

You're not the only one playing. Just because it works for you doesn't mean it'll work for someone else.
