    [WCFS] TheFragShack <HC Ranked> is Live!

    Post by Antares on Tue Mar 02, 2010 5:15 pm

    The server is live and running in Conquest mode. Only certain maps will work with certain game modes. Right now I think there are 5 Conquest maps. I believe that eventually we will be able to run the server with different modes that don't have to be manually changed like right now.

    I have had to fiddle with this thing multiple times and the server has dropped a few times. I will need to get you guys some admin info so that in case it drops again, you can get in and restart it. I'll also need to get you guys set up on BC2CC, which is a program for controlling the server. Limited right now and pretty much useless. I don't think the console is working in the game right now. There are also issues with favorite servers. I imagine we'll be seeing some patches soon.

    There sure are a lot of servers out there with the name, WestCoast in them. I'm wondering if we should go with something else since we're all going to be grouped in the same ping range, since we're all on the west coast. Adding in any special symbols in the name makes it harder to find since I'm having to locate the server via sorting by the name.


    Server IP is - 8.6.3.76:19567

    TheFragShack <Hardcore> is Live!

    Post by Antares on Wed Mar 03, 2010 10:31 pm

    Ok, I'm changing the name to TheFragShack

    If anyone has any comments or a suggestion, by all means lets here it. Why did we change the name from WestCoastFragShack? Because I sorted the servers by name and realized that there are about 7-8 other servers out there with WestCoast in their name. Considering that all these servers are on the westcoast, they'll fall into a similar ping range and players sorting by ping will probably see a number of WestCoast named servers. Figured something a little different would be good. Plus, I think TheFragShack sounds kinda cool.

    Maybe we should change out clan tag to, [TFS] Hmmmmm.

    Well Kreika, The clan isn't just based on the West Coast anymore... Its really a worldwide clan (Or at least OZ-US)

    What about |FS| or -FS-

    Unfortunately there is already a [FS] clan out there. I'm not sure about a [TFS] I'm proposing the brackets because for some reason when you try to use a | sign, this weird little icon is used in its place.

    I'm proposing [WCFS]TheFragShack as Moon did originally because there should be others out who enjoyed our COD servers and will want to hook back up with us. Plus there are people out there looking for a clan and may want to join in hopes of hooking up in a clan.
    On not seeing the server, they have been having some problems with not all of the servers showing up in people's broweser. This morning I couldn't locate it in my browser but the server is running, as I saw three people on it on GameTracker.

    Kreika, do you have Ventrillo? If so, we could help you find the server. Hope to see you tonight.

    If we can get some more clanmates on like we had last night, we should be able to start building traffic. I think we need at least 6 people and others should start joining. 6-8 seems to be the magical number when others start joining.

    The more I play this game the more I like it! I enjoy the diversity of the weapons/gadgets in the game.

    must say i ended up playing mw2 last night .After i got off the clan
    server, I tried a few aussie servers, got sick of not being able to
    kill peeps with a full clip, games took too long, too many
    snipers. i think I'll have to work hard at enjoying it. my
    biggest gripe is that the maps are too big, I like close up
    action and not having to run too far to get back in the action.

    I too like closer in action, however with this game and more people on a server, you can spawn into various areas of the map so that you don't have to run so far. That or you can use a vehicle that is at the home base. I do think the maps are a bit big, but again, with 25-30 people on a server, you shouldn't have to go far to find a target.

    Maybe IW will get their heads out of their ass eventually and will make dedicated servers available in MW2.

    I am not holding out. Even if they do I prob still won't buy it. Just the fact that they screwed us all around so much and have become so money hungry.

    Only thing your gonna see for MW2 is the 2 map packs we will get, with all the shit going on between Act and the former 2 leads of IW, which they are suing the publisher atm, not gonna get servers for MW2.

    Oh well, it doesn't really matter. The new Medal of Honor should be out in the coming months, along with Crysis 2 and the next installment of COD scheduled for later this year. Between BC2 and the rest of the game coming out, I'm fine for the rest of the year without MW2.

    This is the information that Shek is referring to. This isn't surprising because gaming has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry. These are huge corporations that focus entirely on the bottom line results from the decisions they have to make. They realized that more dollars could be had by crapping on the PC community and short-changing us with sufficient functionality to enjoy the game. This will be the same path most other companies follow. Its not about making us happy, its about doing enough to get the bucks!

    Shek - Does your current PC not support BC2? I thought you were going to build a new one? I know you lost your job.

    Dude, exactly! I have a PS3 sitting around doing the very same thing. All I use it for is Blu Rays. I have a few games but don't ever play them.

    I think the main goal is to develop these games that will support keyboard and mouse. I've read that a few times. Thats really one of the biggest obstacles to getting people off PC gaming. I also think that in time they will improve the graphics on the console side. I for one will convert over as soon as they do support K&M. I'm tired of dumping tons of cash into my computer every few years just so I can keep up with the Jones'. I have a sweet 50" plasma and a kicking surround sound system. Would be nice to game and enjoy the comforts of my main living area and not be stuck in the back of the house in the office so that I can game. I've thought about hooking my computer up to the TV, but in all it would be a big hassle.

    ive played my kids copy of mw2 on ps3 on my 46" lcd and surround sound 1 word, SWEET!!!!!!, trouble is the screen is so big you cant see everywhere and your like "fuck where did that come from, oh that dude in the corner
    ". i even tried halo on data projector, man that was awesome, great for multi player as everyone basically gets a 40" screen each.

    Laptop could only run CoD4 when everything was turn down to the lowest settings, CoD5 was a bitch to run, at times it would be smooth, most of the time, its utter crap, MW2 and BFBC2 would not run on this thing Razz, just gotta wait it out.....

    Best fun I've had on BFBC2 so far.....getting a headshot with the repair tool as a Engineer, getting 3 roadkills with the UAV (sooo damn funny, should try it, just ram it into someone's ass), and going 28-3 just using a UAV because the other team loves to die from it.

    Though it was nice having so many peeps on the server, it got frustrating pretty quick with all the sniping going on. It got to the point that I couldn't move far without getting sniped. The spawn raping snipers was starting to piss me the fuck off. In general it was hard to get near any flag spot without getting sniped. I imagine that the Rush mode is similar with sniping problems. I understand that its part of the game, however most of the maps provide ideal sniping/camping spots and there isn't much you can do about it. One other thing that kind of annoys me is that we can only play 5 maps out of a total of 10 in a particular game mode. Not sure why the maps couldn't be developed to support both game modes. Anyone know the answer to this?

    I'm considering starting another server and paying for it out of my own pocket and making it strictly squad deathmatch. Its only $20 a month. It seems to be a pretty popular game mode as I notice that most of the servers out there running it have people on them. I imagine that the amount of sniping in that mode will be reduced, as there are no objectives for them to camp around. any thoughts on this?

    Thats what I've been noticing too. They're not all full, but there seems to be plenty of traffic on them.

    I've started a 16 man Squad DM to give it a whirl. If it doesn't do much then I'll turn it off at the end of the month's subscription. Same name as the other one, however there is a 24/7 DM in the name as well.

    Sweet. I went to get on it after gaming tonight but it was empty. DM against myself is no fun. lol

    I really don't want to go console, though i know it will be cheaper in the long run the graphics aren't easily upgraded and the KB+Mouse thing is stopping me.

    The squad DM server was totally full for awhile. Actually there was good traffic going on it for a number of hours. If you jump on it alone, I think you're more likely that people will jump on because its not an objective based game to where you have two people running around a huge map trying to control points. In fact right now as I look at Gametracker, there are 5 people on it and there appears to have been traffic on it in the middle of the night.

    It was actually pretty fun. Pretty serious DM action really.

    I don't dislike any maps as of yet. I am sure I will after I have overplayed them though...

    I like the White Pass one but it sure bogs my frame rates down. By far the most straining on my ancient rig. Overall I think all the maps are pretty good, though I have played only 2-5 in the Rush mode. Not sure what the others are like.

    Speaking of the Rush mode, should we consider changing the mode over to Rush to see how that goes? MistahT talked about starting a WCFS server and running Rush. If he carries through with this, then I don't see a reason to change ours over.

    Sure. We could give that a go. I got a little sick of it in Beta but now it should be good. As long as the only map we had back then isn't there... lol
