Help fight the Dutch discimination in BF3.
« on: November 05, 2011, 02:23:12 PM »
Battlefield 1942 had it and all the others lacked it. Of course I'm talking about windmills!
It's absolutely outrageous to pay 50 euro for a game that's supposed to bring gaming to the next level. Yet where are my windmills, where are my clogs I ask thee?

The Ice Cave having strong Dutch roots does not shy away from these questions. Instead we ask, no we DEMAND an increase of overall sea in all DICE maps. Furthermore the lack of below sea level combat areas and increasing sight of mountains does not sit well with us.

Join our battlefield 3 server and help fight the cause known as Dutch Discrimination. We too feel just like you that there should be clogs to walk over the seine cross canal. Our ideals bring balance to maps like hairnose canal. Bring this map below sea level and mobile AA harassment to infantry comes to a halt!

Help fight the cause now!


Main server:

No bullshit rules, all maps besides metro conquest.

Private server (pw polar):

This is a special private server with instant vehicle respawn and requires only 1 player to start the match. The ideal server to practice your flying skills or help join the Dutch cause. For every ten vehicles you blow up Dice might add one bicycle.

Furthermore we still need people to help pay for the server on a monthly basis. Every bit of money helps to keep these servers going.
Total monthly costs: 53 euro

Ouch, high costs. I would pay but I don't play BF3 :S Perhaps I could donate once. You still get 15 euro from me anyhow. I earn 230 in a month anyhow now so I might just give TIC some. Treasury page is neat by the way.

It does seem expensive but we looked around, it isn't such a bad deal, with the 16 player server thrown in

Figured it wouldnt be so bad because with so many of us playing it, only needs a few euros here and there from people and its paid for, it also has a very low ping which is nice

How are the performance in contrast with BC2? Worse, better? Lacking of Quad core is still a no go?


So I heard Britney Spears was looking for a drummer?

BF3 runs great and I haven't heard anyone else complain about it.

I have problems with very slow loading of the maps and sometimes stutters. Also I have mouse problems where for some reason the mouse sensitivity is much higher than in windows. But I'm just that kinda guy that has problems with everything.

Like when I went karting with some friends I had the broken kart.

Did you do some research on the issues you are having? I've seen a few fixes fly by regarding the loading issue. Mouse sens you might want to tweak in-game there's a hardware and software related mouse option you can pick.
BF3 runs fine for me besides the rare crash to desktop, loading bug and losing control of keyboard. All of these are fairly rare so they don't bug me that much.

I would however not recommend Fly tries to play BF3 on his constant crashing pc along with an old dated dual core he's running (2.0 ghz if I recall).

I'm now using the tool PROCON on the BF3 server. This should add in team autobalance and reserved slots.  Furthermore I've also re-enabled the server's anti cheat streaming towards PBBans and renamed the servername to reflect this.
Please continue filling up the server when its empty as you guys have been doing of late. With 4 guys needed and 10-20 minutes to fill the server up it should be more then do-able and with some luck will make the server self sustainable.
