Absolutely. I am in awe of the people who are able to speak/type so well in English and am utterly embarrassed that my attempts to recently learn French and German have been dismal. Have learn't enough to speak it in shops and the like but not to have a proper conversation. I wish my school had spent a little time to get us speaking practical French rather than concentrating on repetitive grammar exercises. I would never make fun or comment on anyone's use of English. I try and make sure anything I type is correct only because I like to do that and turning off autocorrect really helps. I really do admire and am jealous of anyone who has two laguages.

Tried a few different apps for languages but I feel that I just suck at learning. Do make sure that before we go into a shop or restaurant that I know basic phrases though. My dad was of the embarrassing click your fingers and speak LOUDER AS THAT WILL MAKE SOMEONE MIRACULOUSLY understand English. That worked well when he wanted 3 oranges but ended up with 3kg of them. We were OK for vitamin C for quite a while!
To beginners having two languages doesn't really help that much.

For me being able to speak English with any real thought makes it really easy to communicate with people not from the Netherlands. But besides English you basically don't have to know any, since its basically the language everyone speaks (at least a little bit)

Although I went to France once in a people where tourism was basically non existent and me trying to speak English really did help because they couldn't understand me. Lucky I have my girlfriend who could speak a bit of France because I would have been lost there :D

Of course some game modes we come up with are of limmit because they hurt the server. But I would love to play such game modes like the swap nuke or any other mini game we can come up with that need everyplayer to obey the rules. So if you guys like we can plan such event. I would love to rent a server so we can play such an event as a clan together.

But such event needs some coordination so if you guys would like this (just a random event where we try different thing on the server. Imagine hide and seek game or any random idea we can come up with that need everyplayer to follow the rules) I would love that.

We can use a date planner so we can find a date were we (NRU family + some close friends) can play on such a server for a day and have some fun.

This is not ment to be another server we play on just a one day event where we can mess around and have some fun together.

If you would like this I would love to make this happen

Think about X v X domination tournament between nru players. Messing around with random setting and game changes that make the game weird or funny. Which we cannot do on our official server.

Since we're all from different parts of the world a real meet up would never be really possible but we can do a NRU family event like this. Which I think would be really fun!

So going back to topic here: Is "Infantry heavy sunday" okay for tomorrow? What about the map rotation I proposed? Any objections there? :)
let the server take a break. last days there was a lot of server issues and specials and so the ranking is going down and with that, the server population too.

playing some maps with "main focus" infantry or just some infantry only, specially on some maps, which are normaly dominated by vehicle or boats can be really intersting. so lets use the time to next weekend for make this more specific. which maps, infantry only or just the maps with less vehicles, conquest big or conquest small?? vehicles spawn time stay at 75% or maybe put it higher?

All right, that makes sense :)


For this Sunday, how about “Infantry heavy”? Meaning maps, in which the combat is mainly between infantry with only a handful of vehicles. I quickly looked through the map list and picked the ones where the majority of flags is mainly contested by infantry. This would still leave enough maps in the rotation to not get stale and next week we could simply switch and run the server as “vehicle heavy”. So both, people preferring infantry combat and people preferring vehicle combat can have an event for them.



Maps in rotation:

Flood Zone

Guilin Peaks

Hangar 21

Lost Islands

Lumphini Garden

Nansha Strike

Operation Locker

Operation Metro

Operation Mortar

Operation Outbreak

Peal Market

Propaganda

Sunken Dragon

Wavebreaker

Zavod 311 + Graveyard Shift





Maps not in rotation:

Altai Range

Caspian Border

Dragon Valley

Dragon Pass

Giants of Karelia

Golmund Railway

Gulf of Oman

Hammerhead

Lancang Dam

Operation Whiteout

Rogue Transmission

Siege of Shanghai

Silk Road



Maps I am not sure about:

Dawnbreaker

Hainan Resort

Paracel Storm



If not, then my second proposal would be “5-minute-swapnuke-Conquest”. This is just regular conquest/conquest large but the teams get swapnuked every 5 minutes. I think that would be fun and ensures the rounds are more dynamic.


This is what I had in mind

Would it be a good idea to do a whole day of one of the lesser played game modes on a Sunday? Like a whole day of Capture the Flag or a whole day of Chain-link? I know these appear in the wild Wednesdays but they are always a lot of fun when they come up. Plus, it might help some of the regulars get to grips with how to play these game modes. This could also work for Obliteration or Carrier Assault.

I have a feeling someone is going to tell me that this has already been tried and results in an empty server, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
