Final Game Night On GB's Battlefield 3 Server

That's right - the Giant Bomb Official Server for BF3 will finally meet it's end this month on the 25th - exactly 1 year since the launch of BF3. It's been a long road. LAVs were flipped, knife-fights were had, stand-offs were screwed up, the GB hub was founded, but unfortunately the game has passed it's vogue in the eyes of the Giant Bomb community, and so it's time for it to come to a close. Much thanks to for bankrolling the server for so long and for doing such a stellar job managing the server. And of course, so much thanks as well to those who have donated to keep the server up and running over it's year-long lifespan.

Events for the upcoming expansions will still be scheduled on the Hub steam group, however, we will not have the privilege of having a server at our disposal.

But enough eulogy - we've still got a bit left in us!

This Saturday, 5PM EST (10PM GMT). The password to the server will be: Basketball

We'll all be hopping on the server for one last chance to get in a game full to the brim of friendly duders!

If you would like to be reminded of this info, join the GB PC Gaming Hub steam group and we'll notify you through Steam on Saturday.

Ah, we had a good run. I assume it will mostly be vanilla maps to accommodate the most players?

@Akrid: Ahh, sorry to hear that. I've been a member of the clan since day one and have always tried to join up with you guys on scheduled runs. We've had some pretty good games and the server made those awesome BF3 TNTs possible. But yeah, a big shout-out to you, @AhmadMetallic

Shame to see it go, but I have to admit that the game has grown quite stale, so I understand this decision. Looking forward to getting together for some shenanigans one last time.

If this is still going when I get off work, I might hop on. Haven't played much of the game at all.
