I recently opened a Battlefield server on a dedicated machine based out of Chicago -- with a lot of good mods to enhance the experience. You start with AK's and Bolts as well as gear/med supplies. You have a list of kits available too. The balance of the server is perfect as the speed of everything is increased and scaled smoothly.
Server Opened on 8-24-15. (NEW)
