Back in the BF3 days I did a rundown of good servers, providing links and reviews to help people find good places to play. I’ve been on BF4 for about six months now and have had some time to get a good idea of what servers are worth playing on and which aren’t. I figured it’s about time to do that again for BF4 and starting with my own clan’s server seems the best place to start.
The 5307th has been around for a lot of years, and I’ve been proud to be a member for almost as long. We hit a slump there for awhile, after COD4, not really having a game we all settled on. We hit up World at War for awhile and then Black Ops but neither of those really touched on the magic of our days playing Medal of Honor and BF2. After a dry period in which a few of us played nomad on BF3 servers we have finally made a home for ourselves and are growing again.
We are a tactical clan, which used to mean something completely different than it does now. What it means is we want you to work as a team, use VOIP, use commander, follow squad leader orders, etc. Those aren’t rules, but they are highly encouraged, and our regulars know it. If you aren’t getting with the program you’ll know right away. Our rules are simple and easy, and you can find them in more detail on the forums. Just follow one of the links on the left under Links or BF4 servers.
- Kill by any means necessary. We don’t want to hear you cry about what weapon killed you or what is overpowered. On our server you need to bring your big girl panties and fight, not whine. That goes for complaining about the game. We aren’t EA, we aren’t DICE, we aren’t software support. If you have a problem with the game take it up with them, keep it out of chat. If you have a problem with us, bring it to the forums.
- Be respectful. While sometimes the language flies, and yes, the game is rated M and has cursing in it, that does not give you free reign to come to our house and pee on the carpet. If your cussing and douche baggery are directed at another player you can bet we’ll tell you to lay off. Hate speech, racism, and the like are NEVER tolerated.
- Please apologize for TKs. We have a punish feature, and also a forgive option. Apologize and be forgiven. Repetitively TK and say nothing and you might find yourself shown the door.
- Listen and be mindful of the admins. There are times, when the server population is down, when we will ask you to limit the combat to a couple of flags or maybe a weapon type. This is to keep things fun, intimate, and help seed the server. Please play along. It doesn’t take long to get things populated, and it’s much more fun playing 4 on 4 if we keep things close and personal.
You can find us on most days in the evening U.S. time, but earlier on the weekends. The server gets rocking at night and stays fairly active into the wee hours on Saturday and Sunday. You can find our forums and website on the left, and visit often. Our website is stock with videos, gaming news, and whatever else we decide to post. You can also find information on how to become a member, get involved with the clan, and get access to ventrilo. We are a hardcore server, though we’d prefer custom to make it like BF3 hardcore, but that’s a whole other ball of earwax. Come by and check us out, say hi, and get registered on the forums.
