    Don't take this to lightly, if you wanna succeed as PC clan you need your own server(s) which requires a nice clan wallet, A LOT of admining the clan, server(s) and hackers, yes, pc will have shitloads of hackers.

    I've got years of experience in battlefield on PC, as admin ect ect, it's really, really hard and it can take the best clans down

    Well then, I definitely don't want to go there.

    hit me up with a message and let me know what you want to do or what you are looking for.


    in other news I'm getting it for both.. will probably upgrade one of my gfx cards just before launch day to make sure i can run it on the highest settings.

    Hey thanks for the heads up K4OS. It all depends on how much money I make this summer if I could be able to get if for both.

    DFA will still primarily be on the Xbox 360, but we might also expand to the PC. We're not sure yet.

    It does take some money for clans to stay afloat, but you can get a sponsor to cut the costs down and have advertisements on the website as well. As for hackers, yea they do exist, but in my experience - Counter Strike etc, you can tell who they are if you know the game well enough and can kick/ban them or better yet, use them for practice and just kill them regardless of hacks. That being said, I'm sure hackers in BF differ greatly from hackers in CS. Also having an anti-cheat plugin on the server would decrease the hacker population tremendously, compared to not having one.

    Should this still be an 'Announcement'?

    Yes. We still need to decide whether or not to expand to the PC with the launch of BF3.

    Never enjoyed playing games like this on PC. RPG's are fine, but never really enjoyed playing games like this because of all the hacking and cheating and the sorts that goes along with them, no matter what you do to stop it someone will be there trying to get around it all.

    That, and the enormous amounts of time and money you have to put into a clan to keep it going.

    I for one dont have a PC capable of playing games on it (old P.O.S. thats been through the desert numerous of times) nor do i have the money to fund buying a gaming PC or having my brother in law help me build one.

    My votes no.

    The fact of the matters is that if you want to be a PC clan you are going to need a server...which costs money. I would appreciate a PC clan base but in my opinion it is not a neccesity.

    Well why not just branch out into a PC division and play in other peoples servers, and take it from there. Maybe the PC division will decide to combine some money and get a server for the clan. I don't know just brainstorming and throwing ideas out there.

    We are not doing thins half-assed. If we branch out to PC, we're getting our own game server and Ventrilo server.

    I am currently looking into getting sponsorships (let me know if you have any ideas or recommendations) just to keep the door open if we choose to branch out.

    I heard one of the big wigs say that they were going to have dedicated servers. Now I don't know if this has anything to do with getting our own server or not.

    Well myself i know for a fact i need to build a hardened server for work, i have priced everything and I’m in the process of purchasing PC components over next couple of months. For me living in the UK plus me being a IT professional i can purchase high end computer components for really good prices, everything should come to the total of £1500.Its just the security that will be a challenge. i hope i I know Defgrppa is in the process of building his own PC, i hope he might host games from his PC.

    Aside from recently playing the first level of Deus Ex for a few hours a while back, it has been years since I fully played a game on the PC. I'm not sure what the prices of a quality gaming PC are now-a-days but it's cheaper for me to just have a console.

    Plus I really have loved my 360 since I first got it. And with everything they're adding to the marketplace recently, it's giving me more reasons to stick with it and not go elsewhere.

    Removed both option. It's multi-choice, so you can tick both options at the same time.
