I know a lot (and I mean a lot) of people have gotten iPods or iPhones for Christmas, and, given by the amount of people visiting my previous fixing iPod article yesterday, I’m assuming that there are a bunch of people that either need help setting their iPods up, have encountered some sort of error, or want to know how to do something with their iPods or iPhones. If anyone needs help jailbreaking their device, getting it set up, or anything like that, I provide free, non-professional help. As a disclaimer, I’m not responsible to anything that may happen to your device, although, seeing my track record, I can probably help you. Either post a comment or contact me, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
They better be good…
First of all, as of late, Battlefield Heroes has passed its 3 millionth player mark, which is huge for them: the game has certainly come a long way in the past year or so, and I’m happy to say I’ve been in it allll the way since the private beta. I can’t say I’ve been playing as much (Left 4 Dead 2 has been keeping me substantially busy). Regardless, I feel as though I owe it to my readers to explain what in God’s name is going on over at EA’s Battlefield Heroes servers.
Secondly, probably thanks to the recent player milestone, the Battlefield Heroes servers have seen more activity as of late then they ever have, which is a big deal. Huh. It would seem as though they could do with a few new servers, or something like that, to keep up with these new demands. So, why is all this activity happening now? Partly because EA and the Battlefield Heroes team released a new map for battlefield heroes, called “Sunset Showdown.” While the map doesn’t showcase anything new (apart from the sun being slightly lower in the sky), I’m sure it was reason enough for a lot of almost-fans to try the game out a second time, just for kicks. On top of that, those who are die-hard Battlefield addicts are probably drooling over the new weapons released (for a small fee, of course) to the game. At a price of 560 BattleFunds, you’ll get to indefinitely use the new weapons, which seem to just be better, without any real drawbacks. It doesn’t seem as though they put much thought into the weapons, which is a let down. Hey, at least Valve knows how to release new weapons.
Here are some numbers, just to show how crazy Battlefield Heroes has become.
- First off, 1382 years of gameplay have been spent, cumulatively, by all the players.
- 294, 697,962 people have ‘died’ in the game, more than 5 times the total number of people ever deployed to fight by the United States.
- Every battle takes about 4.7 minutes to play. How quaint.
So, what now?
Well, first off, wait. The BFHeroes team is working diligently to fix all the connection issues, and there isn’t much left to do, apparently. If you’re getting a specific error message, try posting it here, and I’ll try to give you an answer as best I can.
Everyone who’s so keen on getting their version of beejive working again should know this; The latest beejive idea is now out. Here’s how it works;
Thats right; a new iTunes account allows you somewhat of a ”second chance” for a license. The only issue with this is that you’ll need to either re-purchase any previously purchased appps from your old account on your new account, or find cracked .ipa’s of them (which is highly discouaged). After you make a new account, you’ll need to do one oif the two methods described in my previous article, “Beejive fix”. Here’s a link;
This apparently worked, and it’s been confirmed by a few commenters. Everyone let me know how this goes!
