Hi IZZZI,

Sometimes the server is a little wonky and doesn't show up in the lobby. If you want, you can join through direct IP: 108.61.100.36:2302

Hope to see you around. :)

Hi Fuzzy

Thanks!  I'm really keen to play.  However when I use that address in the Direct IP, it asks for a password.  If I don't enter a password it tells me I have been banned.
Since I haven't played with BFM for many years, and have never been banned, I assume the problem is that I need a password.  can you help?
A PM to my messages here on BFM is fine if you don't want the password in an open forum.
Sincere thanks!
IZZZI

O.o
Being a good racer in Halo isn't just about getting the best times. You have to know where your teammates and enemies are, and most of all... how to be crafty! XD -nods-

Oh... and "v.v" = sad face.






Props to Plixity for the first sig, Slayton for the Season XIII trophy sig, and Jane for the banner! Thx guys! ^.^

So glad these are still happening with great success week after week every Saturday! It all started with a one-off showing (organized by Jay) that filled the server with pretty much only BFM members. After that, both Suprman and Lemming started organizing some scheduled races here and there. There was clearly some interest and I didn't want that to die out so in December 2016 I started a bi-weekly race at the usual scrim time (it was then changed to every week). First 7-8 months or so we would usually get about 6-7 people showing up which was pretty good in my opinion. Making it weekly at the same time I knew we would be able to fill the server again like the old times as some of the members would eventually return and catch up with what was going on.
It's been over 3 years now and we've been hitting the full server mark for a while now every week! So yea, I'd like to show some appreciation first to Fuzzy (for keeping the servers up) and then to some members/guests that have been showing up every week. People like MacAir, Invert, Boredom, Mr Do, Navy, Bob Marley, Whipwreck, clipseur. There's a few more but I can't remember you all!

For 2020 I'm hoping we can get some more members back and who knows we can get the Aussie one going on! (hey Slimmy :) ). Oh and getting a one-off of something like CE (believe I have the BFM map rotation) or Halo Soccer again would be amazing too!
Happy new year everyone!

Since more people have been showing up to our races (and even earlier than the usual start time), we've decided to add 2 new extra weekly races! Now racing every Monday, Wednesday and of course on Saturday. Always at 8PM CST! Post will still be updated on a weekly basis.
Thanks.

Just a note about the time. The start time is 8 p.m. Central and that is Daylight time. I point that out in case anyone outside of North America is using a time zone translator to determine their local time. Mil had mentioned last night that he was surprised to see everyone show up so early and it didn't occur to me until later that the surprise may have been that it was pretty recent that we changed to Daylight Savings Time.

The success of the extra racing nights will depend on people showing up and so I encourage everyone to do so.

Next week Europe is going to move its clocks forward as well so we will be back to normal again. Anyway just like when we first started back in 2016, don't expect a huge turnout in the beginning. As for me 2AM during the week will probably be impossible but Saturdays for the time being, I will stick around for a few more weeks!
