Hey guys. I kept looking and looking for a topic on a BombSquad BF3 server on the consoles (the PC guys have a pretty excellent system going), and i decided to just spend the money and make my own.

The name of the server is Giant BombSquad, and it is currently set for 90 days (expiring in September).

Right now it is set for normal rules and Epic Battles map rotation (because what other types of battles would the GB community have?). Let me know if you have any feedback! I am going to go add people from the 360 gamertag thread to the server VIP list in a minute.

It will take work to fill this thing, so everyone should help out, and join.

This is awesome! My gamertag is Professor Reid.

Awesome!

The 360 gamertag thread hasn't actually been updated in a long time, so can you put me in there? I've got the game and gold, just need to get the update. I'll join as soon as I can.

Could you post times for game nights? It seems like if you don't do that, then people stop coming.

I went ahead and applied. My gamertag is Project SORN.

Is there anyone in the server right now?

I just joined and didn't find anyone in there. I do have a question and, depending on the answer, a very strong request.

Does "Epic battle maps rotation" mean playing on the larger maps with something like 500% tickets? That is no fun at all. Please, for the love of God, no. Hour and a half long sessions are not fun, and while I love the big maps they sometimes feel empty and the smaller maps help alleviate that a lot.

If I'm wrong then please, completely disregard this comment.

If you're looking at this then

JOIN THE GAME, DAMN IT!

I can't dick around in an empty server forever!

@financingisfree: This is awesome and generous of you. Next time you should try getting donations though! I raise the 3-monthly $180 payment within an hour from this amazing community, maybe you'll succeed to do the same. 
I hope you guys have fun! Battlefield 3 is the best game. 
 
Make sure to take kickass teamwork videos.

@believer258: Epic Battles just refers to the specific playlist of maps that the server is running through at the moment. Its just the biggest maps with vehicles and conquest modes. the tickets and rules are all set to normal. I hate those 500% games as much as you do. of course that was just to start with. we can always change the map rotation at will, no worries.

@AhmadMetallic: I will do that next time, but i just wanted to get the thing started so we have something to go on. once it is nearly expired, i will get the paypal donations going. we just need a place where people are playing and enjoying themselves in order to even get anyone to want to donate, y'know?

and I tried playing on it yesterday and nobody else joined. Has anyone else played on it in a while?

#14 Posted by financingisfree (36 posts) -

yeah sorry. last night got pretty busy for me, so i didnt even get to play on my own server. there are 22 people in there now though :-) anyone who posted in here should be in the VIP list already, so you jump to the front of the line if the server is full when you try to join.

we do need to figure out the GB game night situation. my first instinct is to run it at the same time as the TNTs (thursday 6ish CT) or saturday in the early afternoon (saturday morning cereal with your giant bomb). anybody else care to weigh in?

A lot of people will be watching TNT's at that time so that's a definite "not good" from me. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings are probably best.

@believer258: @financingisfree:

Playing on it right now, it is full.

#17 Posted by natetodamax (19164 posts) -

Pretty cool, duder. I'll add it to my favorites.

#18 Posted by Redsox44 (481 posts) -

I've barely played BF3 after the rent a server update. But a giantbomb server is enough to get me back, thanks. I'm already in the 360 platoon. Will try to play some later.

#19 Posted by big_jon (5707 posts) -

I'm in there right now, pooping on duders, doing GB proud.

#20 Posted by Redsox44 (481 posts) -

Well I was gonna join but now I gotta download a 2.38 GB update...

#21 Posted by RekIvan (18 posts) -

Be on tomorrow, gamertag : Rek Ivan.

Be good to play with people who haven't just bought their gear. But earned it.

Nice, my girlfriend and I need a server that isn't filled with dicks.

Isnt voice chat just the people in your squad anyway? I notice people aren't dicks when they aren't showing off to the full game lobby in COD.

#23 Posted by DjDonFrancisco (289 posts) -

Props to financingisfree for starting this server. Hope this is super successful in the long run. Can't wait to hop on and shoot some dudes at night. GT: DjDonFrancisco

Sounds good, Gamertag- plastic chat.

utterly disappointed, not many playing and my team wasnt even trying to actually play the game instead its the usual BF3 bull crap, everyone sits at their spawn and shoots their gun into the sky. Was expecting a bit more from a GB community server. :/ bleh battlefield is dead to me these days. RIP bad company 2.

Dude there was probably no one in there even from Giantbomb, chill the fuck out.

You want team work, go in with friends.

#30 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

I'd be in there playing except I have to download the 2.3 gig update and my Internet is being slow as hell. Might not make it on tonight.

Dude, you're sitting here bitching about how the GB guys were not playing as a team, when none were in the game...

@financingisfree: Can you throw some Rush maps in the mix? B2K would be best.

#36 Posted by Redsox44 (481 posts) -

Im gonna join in right now.

#37 Posted by hoossy (932 posts) -

I'm down charlie brown.... I join up soon

#38 Edited by EchoEcho (813 posts) -

I jumped in earlier today, got two Team Deathmatch games in a row before leaving. Is TD in the mix due to popular demand, or what? I'd rather it not be in the rotation at all, if nobody has any objections to removing it. I just don't come to Battlefield for Team Deathmatch, period.

Also typically play Hardcore, but I know that isn't what the majority of people enjoy. Going to take some serious getting used to.

#39 Posted by natetodamax (19164 posts) -
@EchoEcho I'm in the server right now and I don't think TDM is the majorly game mode. I've played it followed by Rush and then Conquest.

@Voxel: Want another duder in there?

#41 Posted by natetodamax (19164 posts) -

#43 Posted by erichr (58 posts) -

Big props to you duder, I was actually looking for something like this a few weeks ago. I will for sure try to drop into the server, although for the next few days I'll probably be playing a lot of Close Quarters.

Anyone from GB feel free to add me for online or coop (still haven't done any yet), gamertag is PointZer00

#45 Posted by believer258 (11557 posts) -

@financingisfree

May I suggest adding a password to the server and messaging it around so that only Giantbombers can join and NOT randoms?

#46 Posted by big_jon (5707 posts) -

@believer258: Then it would be empty.

What's the point of paying for a Giant Bomb server if Giant Bomb members aren't going to populate it?

#48 Posted by natetodamax (19164 posts) -
@big_jon Yeah, that was me
#49 Posted by big_jon (5707 posts) -

@Voxel: Sorry duder.

Awesome, I might just get back into BF3 for this.
