Bad news and vision.
First, the bad news. Perhaps you have already noticed on our server page. Our Call of Duty 2 server has gone offline. For about one year long the server has been online.
Because the server was not very populated over time, we decided to bring the server down. Thanks to all those who played at our server. We hope you had fun.
Second, the vision. Our vision is not to stop playing Call of Duty 2. Most of our players really enjoy this amazing game. Next to playing Call of Duty 2, we will play Battlefield 3. We are considering a Battlefield 3 server. Perhaps this will become fact in the future.
Soon on the 27th of October 2011, Battlefield 3 will be released.
The maps will be huge. One map will be 3 times the size of the biggest map of Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Atacama Desert. Lucky as we are, there will be vehicles and other forms of transport. A source tells us that one of the maps will be very special. Starting at a 500 meters high cliff. Would you jump? No? Don't worry, there will be helicopters. Giving you the opportunity to make a smooth flight down. Of course this will be not without risks. RPGs and other anti-air weapons will give you a warm welcome.
Next to helicopters, jeeps, light tanks and heavier ones. There will be jets in the game. Which is not entirely new. In Battlefield: 1942 you already could fly a Second World War airplane. Do you think you will be save in a jet? Because of its speed? No, you won't. Anti-air vehicles will await your arrival. And once in reach...
Below is an explanation of the cockpitview of the jets.
With a lot of weapon choice and special arms. The infantry is one of the deadly factors in the game. The different classes are: Assault, Engineer, Recon and Support. All of them have different special arms and weapons. They all require special tactics and approaches.
But don't worry. A light tank can easily annihilate a squad of infantry. If not balanced
A new Battlefield was shown at Gamescom 2011 in Cologne, Germany.
And Lucky Maniacs is preparing for a new kind of warfare.
DICE amazed us with amazing graphics and a stunning Frostbite engine. Lucky Maniacs will soon change its habits and will join the modern warfare in Battlefield 3. Where apaches helicopters will rain death on our enemies and the footsoldiers will capture their flagpoints.
You can now apply for Battlefield 3, Lucky Maniacs membership on the Apply to join page.
The Call of Duty 2 server is most likely going to disappear and will make place for a brand new Battlefield 3 server.
Of course you will still be able to find Lucky Maniacs members online at public Call of Duty 2 servers. Because we won't quit playing this game.
We are currently discussing a Battlefield 3 server. Stay tuned for more about this in the future.
See you on (the) Battlefield 3, 27 October 2011
Since E3 in Los Angeles, people discuss the matter of Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. Who is better, and so on.
We as the organisation of this clan, also discussed this.
Next to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Far Cry 3 and Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3 is going to be one of the best releases of coming Fall.
We think that Modern Warefare 3 is going to be another Cash Cow, next to Black Ops. That is why we play Call of Duty 2 now, and not one of the other 7 Call of Dutys. As of Modern Warefare, Activision hasn't amazed us yet. But the awesome graphics and realistic looking gameplay of Battlefield 3 amazed us a lot. See video below.
We are still discussing becoming a Battlefield 3 clan. Keep an eye out for more news about this matter.
