I like that every thing you equip to your rifle actually changes things. I run AEK with a heavy barrel. I love the changes to the helicopter I am getting to be boss in it now. The game feels really good now.

We should get a fund together and rent get a server for TPB.


Oh yes. Choppers=the shit.

I hate the mobile AA now. I think they could weaken it against infantry, that seems fair, but when the gun on top of a jeep can take out a scout heli faster than mobile AA something is wrong. I probably shouldn't have held out so long on earning the service star for the AA. This might be a little difficult now.

Something I really have a problem with is how inaccurate bolt action rifles are when you are moving. Your cross-hairs don't really matter at that point because the bullet will not hit where you aim. If the rifle was sighted in properly the bullet will hit where you are aiming. That's how rifles work. Maybe instead of jacking up inaccuracy DICE could have made your back and front sights not line up properly while you move.

I really like how unused the USAS is after the patch. It was getting to a point where I couldn't do any good on small maps without using a shotgun because of the USAS. It's nice to see people using more weapons. Of course there are still the die hard fans with 92 service stars. That hurts to see.
Back, I am.

Hey TechPB Xbox players:

Would you guys be interested in setting up a long-term rented BF3 server? Like everybody pitches in a little a money via paypal and whoever pitches in money gets admin status? I could put in 10 bucks right now, and if we get like 5 people to put in 10 bucks every 3 months we could keep a official TechPB server going for a long time. And if you think about it, 10 bucks every 3 months isn't that bad.

What do you guys think? I really like having my own server to practice jets and stuff without being killed, but it's pretty steep for 3 months if you pay that yourself by 1 person.


EDIT: I didn't read the page earlier. If you guys want I could oversee the servers almost 24/7 if we did rent because I had leg surgery and am stuck in bed most of the day, so I could keep tabs on it almost constantly until about mid-may, but then summer comes soon and I could take shifts with someone.

EDIT #2: I was able to secure a server based out of the West US tonight for a week, so its ready to go if you guys want to extend the thing more. Whoever wants to be an admin PM me. Also my gamertag is AHomelessWalrus.

Im in I can for sure put in money. I would love a server of our own. It seems now all you have are 24/7 metro or oman maps.

I was thinking we could do a daily toss up type thing, like vehicle based maps one day, then the next day all infantry maps, then like every Friday night or something set it to unranked and play around with the damage settings and all that fun stuff. Just throwing around some ideas, tell me what you think.

EDIT: ok, so I'm thinking anybody who pitches in money to keep the server going will be granted admin status, anybody in the TechPB BF3 platoon automatically gets VIP status for the server.

For all those who want VIP status post up your gamertags and I will add you.

Also, for money collection, does anybody have any ideas how we could do that? We could just send it directly to my PayPal, but I don't know if you guys trust a stranger over the Internet with your money, so maybe someone like HeroForADay (since he's for one a mod, two way more well than I am) if he's up to it, to set-up a separate PayPal and we all send money to that? I don't know. Anybody got ideas?

if hero is up to it I am Ok with that. It doesn't matter to me who is in charge of the money. As long as you are on and around you can do it. If 6 people chip in $10 then we can get 90 days. To me if you disappear then it is only $10 of my dollars.

We could also do it where I extend for 3 months and pay it all up front, you guys (whoever I make admins) see that it is extended for 3 months then Paypal the money to me afterwards. I think that would be the easiest way, now to find if there is a way they can check how long the server was extended to.

Also, so Cable is putting in 10 bucks, I'm putting in 10 bucks, so we need 4 more people with 10 dollars.

Also, Cable what's your gamertag so I can make you an admin.

Ok, so for the server pool, I figure the easiest way to do it would be PayPal. Would you guys be comfortable with me collecting the money, or would you prefer that someone else do it?

Also, I'm taking off some of my personal friends off the VIP do we can fit the entire Xbox TechPB platoon on the VIP list. Then if any of the admins are on the VIP list I'll take them off so I can fit more people back on the list (Admins get the same stuff as VIPs, just with more administrator type tools as well, I think)

I've noticed snipers are running into buildings and shooting people point-blank almost non-stop now. I hope in the next patch they nerf the snipers close range ability, because I don't want this to turn into a CoD quick scoping game.

Also, just a heads up, in order to join the server you need to have installed the rent a server update. It's about 1 gb and takes roughly an hour, but it's worth it.

They just buffed the snipers for one hit within 15 meters to the high chest. Its not that big of deal especially if you ever played BC2 you would understand how much they nerfed sniping.

K, I set up all the game modes and stuff. Feel free to use the server whenever you guys want. It's set to ranked infantry battles right now.

Also, don't forget we still need donations to keep the server going. If you plan on donating please PM me. You get admin status if you donate (but we will see how that turns out, if it gets out of hand I'll just pick a couple people who seem pretty trustworthy). If we get 3 more people to donate by the 20th I can extend the server for 3 months.

I'm considering letting the server die on the 20th. We don't really get enough use out of it. Turkey, PB2011, Andrew, and Hero tried playing a for a while and it ended up getting boring as hell.

What do you guys think? If we do keep a server I have no problem hosting it, I think it's an awesome resource, but not enough people use it right now.

Should I let it die or keep it running?
