    Question about pings and BF3 servers

    So ya the thing is that im going to be buying a BF3 server with my friends, but 2guys from our group are from US and the rest of us are located in Europe.

    Is it possible to get an IP from the hosting locations where these 2 guys could check their ping's and then we could decide what location we will be using. The location where they are playing from is Arizona

    Also a question about BF3 50% discount. When you go into the form where you set the slots etc, does the price mean under the info's that you need to count 50% out from it or is it already the price with the discount, and that when does the offer end? Is it when the BETA launches or is it when the game goes LIVE?

    Thank you.

    It is £1 per slot per month with the discount*. With regards to ping this page has some test servers, though their location is not stated.


    *There is no discount for paying for a time period greater than a month.

    There are 4 demo BC2 servers, try a trace route to those for an indication. One appears to be Dutch, 2 appear to be German and one appears to be Russian.

    Ok so we decided to go for 2 servers then, but i didnt get the discount yet...

    So the site tells me that with 16slots it gives me this price = 6 Month Prepay Total (approx) (1) €106.56

    Does that mean that it already has the discount in it or do i need to calculate 50% off from that so thehn the price would be 53e is it like that or is the price 106e with the discount?

    Currently £1 is 1.13e.

    Interestingly, perhaps to you, i3d while charging significantly more than multiplay for a single 16 player BF3 server, include a FREE 16 player (presumably unranked) passworded server.

    However their pricing (for a 16 slot server), is 10.32e more for the first month and 3.82e more each month thereafter.

    Considering the server demands that succesive battlefield games have required its not suprising to see higher costs.

    Still one question. Does the offer end when the BETA launches or when the game goes LIVE?

    Nothing to lose by ordering now, ive had a look as i was sure there was a post by a MPUK user to the effect of "order now or miss out" but, i cant find it.

    I think the point of this 50% off system is to drive in the maximum amount of people who are pro multiplay, to order now, rather than later especially when at this time the competition are either more expensive than multiplay's 50% off or limited to one continent AFAIK.
