      (Incomplete) VG Server Standard Maintenance & Updates - Friday 0300 ZULU (Thursday night for USA)   06/15/2018

      **Too many players online, only did half the work - will complete tomorrow evening, same time**
      All VG Game Servers including TS3 and Falcon BMS will be going down for standard maintenance and updates on Friday June 22st at 0300 ZULU (which will be Wednesday evening in the USA).  Downtime is estimated to be 5 hours, but could be shorter (or longer) depending on a number of factors.  TS3 and Falcon BMS may be restored faster, and we may get these servers back online before moving on to other tasks.

  1. FatAlbert is still around ;)

    Sorry fellas. I'm sorta back. Just need to iron out some health issues.
  2. Net neutrality....I always thought that was a given. But the internet has never been "neutral". What's next rainwater being rationed? Oh - that's already happened. An unnamed city in the U.S. has declared Rainwater as being the property of the city. AND they sent a man to jail for water theft....because he had a pond formed by rainwater, on his property - even though he had the proper permits - which they revoked. It's the same old argument.... Sacrificing the rights of an individual for the good of the many. But now, we are sacrificing the rights of many to benefit the few. such a shame.
  3. FatAlbert is still around ;)

    Hey PR fans, Just a quick note......Thanks for the PM's and other messages. I know it's been afew months, but I'm still around. I started a new job in July. Unfortunately, I've been working somewhere near 100 hours (a week) for the past several months and it's put a considerable dent in my gaming. Just for nostalgia, I'll play solitaire for a hand or two, just so I can say "I'm still a gamer" I think my next "scheduled" day off is Christmas day. So...I'll see you guys then.
  4. Dead Pixels? What can I do?

    Gotta LOVE IT! <3 best response EVERRRRR! LOL
  5. World Of Tanks.

    oivay! What server though? I'm not one of those people who have multiple server accounts. I'm strictly US. I don't have many of the newer tanks. I stopped grinding for tanks a couple years ago and sold off most of my gold tanks. Plus, I let someone play my account so they could play some of the higher tiers. Looks like they lost "afew" LOL. BTW, I played on a standard account for years. Can't afford the Gold. oh did I mention my WoWarships & WoPlanes accounts too? I've gotten to maybe tier 5 in warships and tier 3 in planes. Don't play them much.
  6. Dead Pixels? What can I do?

    I tried rubbing the pixel in circular motions, but all that happened was - I got excited. It's like VR porn, with tactile feedback I tried color stimulation with a special program - Note to self: don't stare it for half an hour - all you see for several hours after, are bright colors flashing randomly. Yes, ThiJoe is totally fake!. I came across one of his videos last year. "How to double your internet speed" wrapping a cable around your internet cable.....ahem....not that I tried it... I'll try swapping from DVI to HDMI to see if that helps at all. My Asus 1ms gaming monitors served me well. I feel lucky they lasted this long (bought in 2011). With 3, 23" monitors and a 46" connected to my GPU, I think I can ignore a couple of stuck pixels. Thanks for your suggestions.
  7. Dead Pixels? What can I do?

    Tonight, I turned on my PC and noticed two red pixels on one of my monitors. Anyone have experience with fixing something like that? Anything I can do to fix that?
  8. Server Crash @ 5am GMT (1am EST U.S. time)

    Yep, it solved the low pop. situation.
  9. World Of Tanks.

    I saw that (thread from 2010). I decided to post, in the off chance someone still played. I tried the Blitz version tonight. LOLOLOL it's hilarious. I'm undefeated!!!! Of course, I only played "1" game. My vision is too bad to play it on my phone again. I know plenty of people who have accounts on ALL of the servers (EU/US/SEA/RUS). Try looking it up on youtube.
  10. 13 of us were on Barracuda (and only me and a medic trying to actually cap a flag), and the server crashed at 1am Eastern U.S. time (5am GMT). I'm wondering if it was an automatic server reset? Regardless, it killed the server. 3 players played Jabal Al Burj. Shame. The 3 of us had capped east and west beach and was capping Bridge flag when we had to go back to East Beach to defend. Of course, we couldn't get any AT kits, so we just hid behind some sandbags from the BRDM, until our tickets bled out.
  11. World Of Tanks.

    Is there a =VG= WoT clan? I have tanks for Clanwars and strongholds (Tiers 10, 8 and 6), 52% WR. I uninstalled awhile ago, but if there is an "active" =VG= WoT clan, I'd be interested in re-installing and playing with you guys.
  12. Maps for low player count

    Hi Semler, okay. I was thinking there was a "set rotation" of maps or a "normal" rotation of maps. I see that I was wrong. I didn't realize there were so many variants of the map rotation. Thanks for clearing that up.
  13. Maps for low player count

    Yes, maps are crashing often. It's frustrating and we lose alot of players during the crash, mapswitch, crash episodes. Also, the coop server will never please everyone. It's been a nightmare recently. No English or Don't know what they're doing or wanna play their style, or the kits they want to play. Maybe we can reduce =VG= workload by setting the map rotation as normal and leave them that way all night (unless an admin is on). If people want to play, they can play. At least the expectations will be consistent. Just an idea.
  14. Cancer Sucks

    Yo. You take care of yourself first!!!! Game with us when you're bored. Having lost 3 parents to cancer, in successive years, it's tough to hear this kind of news. For your sake...and your kids...please take care of yourself FIRST! Best of luck and I'll check in on ya. BTW, you were curious (concerned)........"Hateroneactual" is moving to a new house. That is why you don't see him on much lately.
  15. Operation "Red Tide" Part V

    Wow! That was so unintended!!! (Medic = Huckelberry quote = "Doc" Holiday) Good on ya, Kav for catching that one!
