      ​This week I'd like to highlight our A3 Admin team, all of which have been doing a sexcellent job at keeping the server plague/d-bag free.


      The first two are Whitenun and Cwalka, who took the time to introduce themselves and give a little bit more than just the normal introduction.

      Whitenun:
      How did you come upon your gamertag? Any unique stories here with it?

      -A friend of mine went on a fishing trip and the boat was called The Blue Nun Too. When he got back, he pretty much made that is online tag (AIM, BF 1942, etc). From there, all my friends and I picked a color for when we played BF 1942 together. From there it just stuck and has had adaptations from being White_Nun_Too down to Whitenun. (And it's NUN, not RUN. I'm not a city in Skyrim)

      What made you want to be an admin on our A3 server? What do you like the most here about our server that you felt set us above what else is out there?

      -I've like playing Wasteland since Arma 2 and was excited when we got an Arma 3 server up and running. I wanted to be an admin since I try to be on frequently and I like helping people. I rather be unlocking players so they can play with their friends than banning or kicking people.

      -I play on the server since I am a Member of the community so this is where my friends play. Also gotta rep TPG!


      What has been some of your past admin experience if any, and if not, then -- ALSO-- what has brought you to this community?

      -I used to admin a CS:S and BF2 server for another clan I was in, MI5. The CS server was mildly popular, but the BF2 server was full most the time so dealing with being an admin was a tough job.

      -I came to this community originally to play DOTA2. I quickly noticed there was a small DOTA2 community as everyone was playing DayZ, so I got Arma 2 to join in and get to know people. DayZ wasn't so much fun for me, so that's when I started playing Wasteland. Still played with other in things like TF2, CS:GO, and other games the community plays


      Times you typically play daily on our A3 Wasteland server, and days?

      I get on in the evenings around 7:00 PM EST. I try to get on most days, but weekends are more likely.

      Favorite gun and/or vehicle in A3?

      Gun: Navid Vehicle: ATV
      Cwalka:

      How did you come upon your gamertag? Any unique stories here with it?
      It's been my gamertag on Xbox since way back in middle school when I was lame enough to crip walk and post videos online (which no one will everbe seeing)...also I'm not clever enough to come up with anything else lol.

      What made you want to be an admin on our A3 server? What do you like the most here about our server that you felt set us above what else is out there?
      I was playing on the Wasteland server for a few months on a daily basis and loved the community and regular players. Started to post on the forums and thought I could do a lot of good by helping keep the server quality at its best while I am logged in!

      What has been some of your past admin experience if any, and if not, then -- ALSO-- what has brought you to this community?
      This was the first Wasteland server that I joined. And I have been here ever since. It was pretty much impossible to notstick around. With all the great players and welcoming TPG members, playing the game was 10x more exciting.

      Times you typically play daily on our A3 Wasteland server, and days?
      Used to play at all times of the day and night, but recently got a job in IT as a security auditor which has been consuming my life. So normally anywhere from 6-11pm.

      Favorite gun and/or vehicle in A3?
      SPMG or Mk1 EBR all day.

      Ehhhhhh.
      Ehhhhh.
      Eh.

      I'll still buy it.

      This isn't CS:Go, skill-based matchmaking? Feh.
      Star Wars Battlefront will not have a server browser. EA community manager Sledgehammer 70 posted the news on the Star Wars Battlefront subreddit, saying that Battlefront will "utilize a new skill based matchmaking system" instead.

      The thread is full of disappointed players. The Battlefield games, and most shooters worth their salt, give players the option to join servers of their choosing. Server browsers give you greater control over the maps and modes you want to play, and can offer communities stable spots where they can meet and compete. The alternative, matchmaking, is a good way to quickly jump into a game, but is less likely to foster a community that will stick around on PC.
      Server browsers can be inconvenient for developers who want to see the user base spread across all of the available maps and modes. Servers give the community the ability to flock to a limited set of favoured maps, to the exclusion of all others. which can effectively kill maps that fall out of favour. Is this why DICE has decided to go with a matchmaking-only option, or is it because accessibility is more important to the wide-ranging audience that a Star Wars game is likely to attract?
      We'll find out how good the matchmaking is the "technical test" launches next month.
      Thanks, Eurogamer.
