Recently BTSGaming.NET has altered our Teamspeak Host. Teamspeak is now hosted by a more dedicated Teamspeak Host with a better uptime percentage. We only have to pay less than 3 dollars a month! And we have full control over Teamspeak. Some hosting providers at that price block some of the major options that control our ability to have our community.
Teamspeak information does not change.
TS.BTSGaming.NET should still be working. However the Teamspeak IP which some of you used will not work.
We have officially decided on a date to completely reset the server. Due to the fact that there is a point in the server which makes most players want to start over and get a fresh slate. I know the feeling. At some point or another, we need to do a reset. A planned one is the best than a surprise attack from the RUST developers. So if all goes smoothly...
On Friday,January 31st, 2014, any RUST players are encouraged to be online for the last final battle of resources. The ARENA will be the location of battles. Shooting will be highly recommended in the ARENA. Any weapons are a green light to bring. Doors will be wide open, and we would like users to fight WITHIN the arena and not camp the outside. You are free to bring whatever you would like to the Final Server Battle. Including Explosive Charges! For this will be the final day for all your items to be considered yours. After, everyone will have a fresh start and items will be restricted/limited for the first few days.
The Server will be reset at 12:01AM, Saturday, February 1st, 2014. This means that the Friday before reset is the final ARENA Battles. Bring your teams, find a corner inside, defend it for your life. Server will be wiped clean. Nothing will remain. All bases will no longer be there. All personal gear, gone. Prepare to battle it out for materials once again.
What to Expect After Reset:
Restricted Explosive Charges - Unable to Create or Drop in Airdrops
Explosive Charges were becoming too popular. To make the game a more interesting enviorment and to increase trade, communication, and respect between its players, we will be removing the ability to craft or find Explosives and Explosive Charges until the communities are formed. This is a safety measure to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to start on day one.
No Longer Instacraft
Instacraft was making users quickly gain resources in which should take longer periods to create. Became issue when people were instantly making items in front of players bases to gain entry without knowning what they would of needed.
Community Involvement in Matters (Group Council Admins)
You are an important part of the community. Each group that joins our Teamspeak and plays within our boundries will be offered a position within a RUST Admin Council. No abilities within game, but abilities to vote in decisions based around bans.
Better Defined Rules based on RUST Server.
We plan on making a section on our website BTSGaming.NET Rules to make a clear understanding of what we expect the relationship between our players should be. These will not be strict but more a common understanding between everyone of what is right and wrong to do within the server. We will not be making crazy rules such as no attacking between the hours of 3AM and 10AM. We just want to clarify what you should already know.
Teamspeak Channels for Groups - We would like you to become more involved within the community.
Teamspeak is a great way for us to communicate with one another. I do know you all currently have your own Teamspeaks you use. And I know how it feels. I am NOT making it manditory, but with respect if you could please join our Teamspeak while on the server it would be much appreciated. We want to know our resources are being put to good use! You're more than welcome to switch back to your Teamspeak while connected. But if I need to contact a member of your group, its best I find you on Teamspeak than trying to figure out which group you are apart of. The Teamspeak IP is TS.BTSGaming.NET.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
If you have any questions, please visit BTSGaming.NET, register an account, and Private Message. I will not be able to take all questions through Steam.
Users will be brought to a private location where two players who have been stripped of all their gear will duel it out using the power of the mighty hand cannon. Each user will get 10-15 rounds of Hand Cannon Ammo, and a single Hand Cannon to use in the competition only. No user other than the Administrator will be armed at this event to prevent chances of robbery or murder. Any user not following the instructions of the Administrator will receive a minimum of a 24 hour ban.
Requirements to Attend: To encourage recruitment to the server, there will be no requirements for this event other than being on Teamspeak.
Prize for Winning: Signal Flares, Kevlar Gear, Research Kits, etc.
BTSGaming.NET has decided to close down our two Battlefield 4 Servers. Due to the server host and EAGames, they turned our launch day #1 server into the server no one wanted to join because of all its crashes and unable to remain online. As a community, we have decided to leave one feature of BTSGaming.NET available which is our Teamspeak.
Teamspeak Administrator Application Open
That being said, BTSGaming.NET has opened its Teamspeak Adminstrator positions and would like you to come join us on Teamspeak. We offer free services such as Teamspeak Channels to small groups and a place to stay when you're bored.
Donation Benefits Altered
Battlefield 4 Donations are closing. And BTSInvestors are still remain online but will be dropping in price. If we plan on opening any new servers in the future, we may bring new features to BTSInvestors Club.
I still believe BTSGaming.NET doesn't need to be large. We are friends who enjoy playing multiple games together and hope you would come join us. I believe we are in a good place right now and we don't need to grow into these large communities. If you think differently, feel free to bring in as many people as you possibly can into BTSGaming.NET and I'll reward you for your promotion of the BTSGaming Name.
BTS Gaming is proud to announce their forums are now under Alpha Testing. If you find any errors throughout the forums you are more than welcome to report them to the Help Desk under the BTS Information. There are no positions at this time available or posted. Feel free to start topics throughout the forum and check back daily for new information. A good section to start looking at would be the Help Section, which will be worked on and updated in the near future.
