For BFM Members, we no longer use Ventrilo. To get access to our new Discord server make sure you post >HERE< (http://www.bfmracing.net/forums/index.php?topic=61664.0)



Upcoming Halo race nights (Weekly basis):

I thought about it, but it would lose its point after the first racing night. I plan on updating the thread depending on how many people show up!

You can make a poll where you can then change your answer. After the night of the race, people can go back and change their vote. I set mine up to do just that.

Yay, thanks a lot for coming! Thanks to saes, clipseur, gamepanther, MacAir, kingas and BIGEE. Got 6 people for a few moments ;D The idea here is to make this a regular thing and hopefully more members will catch on to this and show up more often. Also I'm trying to do it at least once a month! Added a new date (January 14th) and for now see you next week!

Yay, a lot more people this time! Peaked at 9 players and averaged at 5-6 during most of the time. LOTS of guests and for most of the time it was just a normal server back in the day with me having to admin and kick people. Anyway thanks a lot for showing up. I'd name you again but there were a lot of you today. As for more racing nights I added a new one so hopefully we keep growing and more members show up!
See you next year!!  ;D

I'd do these more often if also more people showed up. Also these occur at 2AM for me which is a bit of a pain sometimes. But if there's any member who is willing to take part in "hosting" one of these sessions I'll gladly add more dates. Christmas/New Year coming up as well.

Well you are more than welcome to add me on steam. Probably the easiest way to get hold of me if I am on for a couple of games.

The rocket league stats thing shows my profile details :)
That or there's discord :)

So... I play MANY games, can host servers if the game supports locally hosted servers. (Like Garry's mod.) Otherwise I would be willing to play the game on a specific server. Like I said I play many games, I currently have over 113 installed on my computer and have 206 plus games available to me (new and old). I would like to play them with groups of people so if anyone wanted to play co-op or battle or whatever then please don't be afraid to PM me. I do have PS4 and PS3 available as well.

I'll try to make the next race as well on Jan14th!

Also Lemming I tried to add you on Steam, but there are 24,000+ results XD
So in quick fix mode I will give you a link to mine as when you search my name it also pulls thousands.

Now, today was awesome really! First race of 2017, wasn't expecting many people really and BANG when I joined there were already 6 people in there  ;D ;D Got the server close to full during most of the time. Was pretty cool to have you all there!
Oh and again, guests, guests, guests! Where's the ranks?? (Reaper did join :P)

Thanks a lot, see you on the 28th!

Can I tell you something? I had no idea it was you on Discord xD Like I knew there was someone there because I answered but I didn't know who it was xD There should be a way to know who joins the channel otherwise I can't tell!

But there is Mil :)

You can activate an overlay for any game you are in so you can see who is speaking and who has joined :)


Also I shall level with you all. During my write up my old laptop died tragically. I cried. It was a sad moment. As a result I have new shiny laptop but no halo. I have just found a disc though, so need to reinstall but not sure if its the same one that I registered recently =0

Cheers everyone once again. Server full  ;D ;D ;D We did it! A lot of fun as always. Thanks a lot for coming, some of you are always there for the races and it reminds me of the old times! Now, I scheduled the next race for February 11th but I will NOT be able to be there but I left it as it is. I'll try to get at least one BFM rank to take part there.
Btw, how are you guys liking the schedules? Would you like it more often? So far I've been doing these mostly every 2 weeks. It's also hard for me to plan ahead but I've been trying!

Anyway thanks again!

Alright so, here's an update about the scheduled dates. February is going to be hectic for me. February the 11th I will NOT be here and for the 18th I may arrive a little late or too late. I won't be able to tell. Have a friend's birthday on that day. Both dates will remain scheduled and hopefully we can get the servers running  ;D

Aw. I have church service to attend on Saturday nights. It's required since I am in their school of ministry. (I work Sunday mornings, so I can only go to the Saturday night service). Perhaps if I stay home ever....

How long do y'all stay on for?

Post by: BFM_Mil on February 22, 2017, 05:16:33 AM
Aww, it usually lasts about 2-3 hours. This isn't the best time for me either since I'm european but I chose this because it is the usual scrim time.

We've been using the new Sapp server, server #2. I'd say to go the traditional way to get all the servers listed and just find it.

06/17/17 Report: A decent turnout by all the usual suspects + BFM_Ben1+ all the awesome guests, even though it was an off-week  ;D. Great to have classic competitive racing back once again on BFM servers on hopefully a periodic basis. Let's try to keep this up. Thanks to all who attended.  :)

I was about to show up but close to 2AM I was feeling way too tired. It was a very long day, it's been way too hot in here (over 35C on a daily basis) and I just couldn't. Sorry but great you all made it! I'll keep this trend going (at least for now) so be there this Saturday and the next one ;D

Maybe we can organize a separate starting time that would be more accommodating for players on the other side of the planet, such as what the Aussies and Kiwis did in the past. Please post if you have any recommendations. :)

I'd love to do other timezones but not many have expressed themselves or showed up on the forums. I just kept going for the normal scrim time as it seemed pretty standard. We can try to do a different timezone and see how it goes.

06/24/2017 Report: Belated apologies to Bob Marley, Justatarget, and others during a competitive race that night. I developed a bad habit of spam-nading and getting unnecessary kills while on foot. I can attribute it to playing on race servers where slayer is typically the priority. It's not an excuse, but please let me know if I continue being a nuisance.

Otherwise, the turnout Saturday was good. Continuing on a weekly basis gives more members and guests a better chance to race competitively once again on our awesome servers. Though, I still can't figure out why Invert and Ben1 chose a chain hog instead of rocket hog at the start of Sidewinder.  ;D

For everyone frequenting this forum, please help spread the word that we plan on racing every Saturday. It's always more fun when we have more racers. Thanks for everyone's time.

Yea, I think we can make that change happen :D With 16 dates so far and with 7 months in the making the turn up is getting consistant so we can definitely make this change! Gosh, you guys are always here! Thanks a lot for coming! See you this Saturday!
So far we have sticked with the 8PM CST being the normal time. In the future I'll try and see if other times would benefit or not (which is hard because earlier would help the europeans and later would benefit the aussies). This is a somewhat not too bad for everyone even though it is at 2AM for the British and 3AM for pretty much the rest of Europe :\

07/01/2017 Report: Glad to have BFM_Dstroyer join in on the fun today. Good to see the BFMers and veteran racers all having a challenging race. Had some players from non-rules based servers too, which at times made a mess, but that is what it is. The turnout is slowly growing. A couple months ago, I would not have thought that we would be able to even hold races every other week. Now we have races once a week. How cool is that?  ;D

However, it takes considerable effort to keep this up. We need more support from our fellow clan members. For a clan with over a hundred members, some of you attending once in a while would help immensely. Since the forums doesn't have the reach to all the members like it had in the past, please help spread the word via any way possible about Halo Racing Nights on BFM servers every Saturday.  :)

I've been racing a lot in Lickity's server on Friday evenings.  As many of you may know the server has been modified so no matter what hog your in, it's a rocket hog.  It was an honest mistake.  I just have to remember which server I'm in.  And Ben1 followed me because he recognizes talent when he sees it.    ;D

08/19/2017 Report: A really competitive racing night with the addition of Superhawk and NavyJayhawk. Haven't seen them in a while so I hope they can join in on a regular basis. It was great fun playing aside from the fact that I was dead last in every map for almost the whole night. There were some conflicts and frustration among the veteran racers about us not being aggressive enough in kicking certain players. From my point of view, I give everyone the benefit of the doubt when kills are disputed in the heat of battle. It's only if it occurs continuously or blatantly that I will exercise the kick/ban tool. We all know by now about how the races should be run on our servers. If there is a need for discussion about a particular event during a race, please bring it up on the forums or pm one of us. Please don't open up a discussion right in the middle of a race.

If I recall properly, we were loaded on the bridge and moving in your direction. It helped that you stayed stationary for once. If not, well... bring it on. :toughguy:

Btw, realistically that fight should not last long. In addition, an overabundance of fake marketing hype coupled with an extreme money making activity usually results in a major crowd disappointment.  2c

Since there's a lot of old members showing up right now let me just throw a couple of shout outs to a few people that also help a ton with these "Racing nights" (yes, it's not just me).

BFM_Fuzzy - for maintaining our servers!
BFM_JANE - updating the header every week!
BFM_Skedog/Wic - dealing with most of the Discord issues and also being in touch with old members!
BFM_Enigma - also a great help with the Discord server!
BFM_MacAir/Boredom/Invert - Geez, they're in the server every week!


I probably forgot a few but still, thank you!

Wow! Best turnout for Saturday Night Races yet. We had Invert, MacAir, Mil, Mr. Do, Octane, Blitz, Reaper, Cuda, NavyJayHawk , and a complement of awesome guests (some of whom have played on our servers every week for almost 2 years without fail, such as Bob Marley, Clipseur, etc...). Thanks to all involved in making it great (especially those working in the background: Fuzzy, Jane, Wic, Skedog, Enigma).   Please forgive me if I left anyone out. Let's keep this up. Before long, the second server will be full as well and the credit list will be even longer  :yesyes:

Mid-Year report:

We are clearly in an uptrend. Veteran race players are making their way back to play on our servers on a continuous basis. Unfortunately some of these players also bring their bad habits from the past with them. In addition, the majority of the new players are of an international (non-English) speaking origin. Adding additional language admin support will definitely add to BFM's longevity. We will eventually need more help with adminning as long as this trend continues. All in all, last night's session was pretty awesome. The majority of the slots were full most of the night. Usually there would be a big drop-off 2-3 hours in. There were still 6 players racing when I left at almost the 4 hour mark. If we have more tags help out, I'm sure the sessions would be extended. 

If 343 Industries ever brings the Halo Master Collection or newer Halo titles over to the Win 10 platform, we should be in a good position for a BFM revival.

Where in the world is Mil?  ;D

Mil was celebrating his anniversary!! ;D I'm glad this is still going strong after 1 year and a half! Seriously, this is mostly because you are all here every week! :hug:
I'm sorry!! But young Mil with his 26 years of existence still enjoys nightlife a lot. If I'm not too tired I'll still show up at 4AM or 5AM (2-3 hours after the start). But that's not usually the case. If by any chance I stay at home I should show up most of the time. The rest of July and August I won't be at home due to vacation so I'll probably see you all in September :'(
(i'll still be updating these don't worry!)

Hey Unka-Dan, good to see you! Well, I have some good news for you, you're in the right place!! We've been racing every week with good turnouts from some of our BFM members and long time guests. So every Saturday night at 8PM CST (next one being on August 4th).
Also, we use Discord now instead of Ventrilo. To get an invite to our Discord server check this thread: http://www.bfmracing.net/forums/index.php?topic=61664.0


PS: I won't be around during August as I'll be going on vacation. Enjoy the races guys and thanks for showing every week :yesyes:

Hey Bowser, great to see ya! :yesyes: For 1 year and a half now, we've been hosting these! It started out slowly but we've established ourselves at that time every week and we now have some consistent turnouts with the races lasting 2-4 hours on average.

PS: The nostalgia will hit you hard!
