We had a little spare time, so what could be better than to spin up 2 new Xmas themed Counter-Strike and Condition Zero servers for the community this Christmas season! This is our first time doing this for the community, and we enjoyed it very much!

Hop on, wear your Christmas hat, and have fun! We added FastDL support so the map assets load blazingly fast.

Note that the servers are unranked, so just in case you want to goof around, we believe it's the season.

Happy gaming!

Wishing you Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas!

Three New Battlefield 2 Beta Servers
October 24 2022
Featured image for featured.jpg

Since the launch of our very first vanilla Battlefield 2 1.5 server two weeks ago, we have thoroughly enjoyed those classic 16 player maps.

However, out of the box, the original BF2 did not include support for playing with bots on 32 and 64 player maps. We like the BF2ALL64 mod because it does not modify the vanilla BF2, but simply adds support for playing with bots on 32 and 64 player maps.

Hence, we decided to create 32 and 64 player BF2ALL64 servers for the community, knowing how few servers there are out there.

Today we announce three more servers:

Together with our first vanilla BF2 server, we now have 16, 32, and 64 player ranked servers, just like the original BF2! Our BFHQ rank system recognizes player scores across our vanilla BF2 server, as well as our BF2ALL64 servers. That means we get the complete stats including stats for large map vehicles (aircraft, helicopters, boats) which makes the ranking system as comprehensive as the original BF2 BFHQ.

The unranked playground server is for anybody to have fun with any 16, 32, or 64 map without their stats being ranked.

For best bot performance, all four servers run with ESAI mod with optimized strategies by the BF2SP64 community. It is said to be much better than the original BF2 AI. We hope you like it.

Finally, to play on BF2ALL64 servers, simply install the BF2ALL64 mod. Download links are on the COMMUNITY page.

You can find the servers on our gametracker, or on BF2Hub.

Happy Battling!

Battlefield 2 server beta launch
October 12 2022

Battlefield 2 has been a title that we really enjoyed playing more than a decade ago. We have played but have never hosted a server for the community. Since there are not many servers remaining, especially in our geographical region, we decided to create one.

Hence, today is the launch of our Battlefield 2 beta server! Although it is not a BF2Hub official ranked server, we have created a private rank system which is viewable at bf2.startersclan.com. If you are using BF2Hub client, configure the BFHQ to be bfhq.startersclan.com to see the stats in BFHQ in-game. Do note that the server is currently in beta, and we may revise the server settings and reset the stats anytime throughout the beta period, until our official launch.

You can find the server on our gametracker, or on BF2Hub.

Happy Battling!
