Notable moments in 2018 for HelloClan:

On June 8th, RamboFD was appointed Leader of our Rising Storm 2 Vietnam server. Since then it has been steadily building, it even peaked it's player limit a handful of times forcing players to actually wait to have a turn to play on it. Bearing in mind that server has a 64 player limit. It has had some teething issues, but at the time of typing this post, our RS2V server is currently ranked #22 out 279 listed and ranked servers from around the world.

On July 19th, the HelloClan staff decided, to change the way the server was run. This most notably revolved around our Repeat Offenders & Admin actions topics. It was drastically changed with the intent to make things easier for players and Admins alike. Granting Admins more freedom with their decisions in-game, and allowing them to take action when they independently feel necessary. We also made a very big change in terms of legacy, we removed the need to Warn players before kicking then banning them. We had also thrown tried what player(s) had requested time and time again, that is removing certain maps from rotation. The end result was that it just didn't work, but we tried. You can view the changes made from in total from this topic: https://www.helloclan.eu/threads/8272/

On December 9th, Vmax was appointed Leader of our Battlefield Vietnam server. The position had actually been empty for a while...full topic explaining (sort of) can be viewed here: https://www.helloclan.eu/threads/8633/

-------------------


With a little bit of this and that, I hope this post was not too boring to read. :)



We will continue on as we have, smoothing the road over as we go along. HelloClan has no intention of dropping anything, in fact I have some plans in mind for the near future. It all depends on availability. Battlefield Vietnam will always have a priority with me, although I don't lead it (anymore), it is the first game I've ever played online. It has a special meaning to me, I may not have grown up with it like many of our players have, but I appreciate it no less than any of those that did.

If the plans materialize, the announcements can be expected early 2019. Until then, we march on!



As will all things, see you all somewhere along the line!

A slight after thought!

Just to remind everyone that we do live in a crazy world, but a cool world, there is still a Tesla somewhere out there in Space with a dummy in the drivers seat complete with a "don't panic" button. Intended to visit Mars' orbit, and which it has surpassed.

At the time of posting this, the vehicle and it's unwilling occupant is currently sitting at: 338,710,525 km away from Earth, traveling further each moment at a speed of 35,862 km/h. It also 244,522,066 km away from Mars and it's increasing the distance as it aims for the reaches of Space. Also note: The car has exceeded its 36,000 mile warranty 11,623.0 times while driving around the Sun. :D

Cool you made such an annual report where we have clan infos / server-stats and even some interesting moments from the ending year.
Was refreshing besides just digging in plain stats, :p

So we can say:
By having our flagship Battlefield Vietnam and a promising future outlook, our clan is ready to set sail for 2019 ;)

Interesting stuff :)

At the risk of sounding a bit nerdy, I love statistics, but you missed out probably one of the most interesting of all (To me at least) - What is the highest number of players that were on the server at the same time this year? And when did this happen?

Bring on 2019!

I was going to do it...but the task of actually finding that out accurately is rather daunting. There is no way to actually see when the highest number of players was online from stats that are available to me. Unless of course I go through each and every single round's event log for the player totals. ;) Can I just tell you - there is a รɦเƭ ton of event logs. Excuse the beeped curse, best way to describe it. :|

It is likely however the last topic that was posted regarding player numbers. Although there were a few Discord posts...

Safe to say that it was around 43 earlier in the year.
