      Battlefield F.A.Q. [Please Read]   04/18/2016

      After multiple questions coming up that were about the same topic we have decided to create a little F.A.Q regarding some of the most talked about topics. Please make sure you read EVERY question and answer. First thing's first, please use the search feature before you ask a question because it might have been answered already: CLICK HERE TO USE THE SEARCH FEATURE Q. I've been banned what do I do? A. Visit the "Ban Info" menu at the top of the page and click that appropriate link that relates to your ban. Then make sure you fill out the form properly after reading the guidelines to submitting a ban dispute Q. What do I do if someone is hacking? A. If you are in game you can report said individual using @report 'playername' REASON HERE If that doesn't help you, you can always submit a ban request by visiting the "Ban Info" menu at the top of the page and clicking the appropriate link Q. Can I submit a request for a new server, or a smaller special server? A. Sure but to put it bluntly most requests have been made already so rather than making a request that has already been made you should visit THIS LINK. That link talks about how we can go about getting more servers and what needs to be done to get those. Q. Well why don't you change some of the servers that you have now to those special servers? A. Because we have those servers as they are what stay full and are the easiest to keep populated. Just because 5 people like something doesn't mean that it's a smart option to keep a server that those 5 people think is a good server. Q. Why don't you change the ticket counts? A. Ok this is where you need to start realizing that the admins at ADK have been running servers for well over a combined 20 years if not more. We promise we're not going to do something that won't work and if we do happen to do that we have our admins making sure that we try to provide the best servers possible for as many people as possible. We love suggestions but when the suggestions are made that make us seem like we don't know what the heck we are doing that's when it's a little overboard. Again just because you and your buddies like something doesn't mean it's a great idea for a large gaming community as the server won't stay populated and pay for itself. We do want to start bringing more of those to the community, but please refer to the answer of the 3rd questions where a link was posted regarding different servers and how to make it happen. But to answer this question some, on certain servers like our BF3 TDM, it is meant to be a quick round server where you have a match that ends quickly. Some people don't want to play a round that goes on for 30 minutes, and a lot of people have enjoyed it. And again our admins do look at servers and how they are doing, but don't forget just because a few people want something doesn't mean everyone wants it. Q. How come I can't use explosives in a no explosives server but everybody else can? A. In actuality those individuals aren't supposed to either, but they are choosing to break the rules We are humans and unfortunately we aren't perfect to catch everyone. But our admins do the best that they can to be perfect and we have our auto admin in place for no explosives, but it comes down to rules are rules. If you choose to break them and you get in trouble, that is your fault and there is nobody else to blame. You can make reports and if admins aren't in the server they will go over them to see those who break the rules often and will deal with them. Just because an admin isn't in the server doesn't mean that we aren't looking at the reports. Q. Why don't you have servers that have multiple expansion maps on them? A. Because they are quite difficult to maintain unless you have people willing to be in the servers and make sure they are populated day in and day out. Please refer again to the link in the answer of the third question as this relates to that. If we have people who are going to make sure that these servers will indeed stay populated then possibly but so far we haven't been able to get that. In the past we've done B2K which a lot of people were begging for an it went nowhere. Q. There's someone cursing and using racist remarks in the server, why haven't they been banned? A. Because the reality of it is nobody will ever be happy, these are not remarks that you will see any admin using but we aren't going to police everybody and what they say. What one person might find offensive, the other person might not. So if we remove a few words then we'll need to remove all words that people find offensive. Now if the individual is spamming constantly and/or just being a troll about it you can always submit a ban request and let us know what was happening. Admins will then look over it to see what action needs to be taken. Q. Why don't you kick people who have a high ping? A. In reality high ping doesn't cause as many problems as a lot of people think. Admins have been talked to about how to handle something that is absurd but they will not kick someone with a 150 ping because people are complaining about them. We have members from all over the world and we're not going to limit what servers they play on. Someone's high ping to a server does not cause a server to lag. If the server is lagging it'll be everyone noticing it. BUT if there are only a few individuals who are complaining about lag, it's more than likely an issue with their connection to the server. The best thing to do would be do a tracert to the server, but most people don't want to believe that they might have an issue on their end or somewhere between their house and the server. And the reality is that there could be an issue that someone is seeing. There are plenty of posts about ping in the servers so feel free to do a search to look them up. Q. Why don't you just disable weapons that you can't use in the no explosive server? A. Don't you think we would have done that if it was possible? :) Q. Why can't I dispute a ban after 2 months? A. If people cared so much to play on our servers after a perma ban, they would come and dispute within the first 2 months. We feel 2 months is more than enough time to dispute a perma ban. Q. Why don't you have anything besides 64 slot servers? A. Again refer to the link in the answer to question number three. But long story short, it's not easy to keep small number servers populated as often as possible when we have as many servers as we do. Due to the fact that you could lose 15 people at a time in one game, there goes half the population of the server which could indeed empty the server. So if it's wanted we need people willing to put in the time and effort to do such and to make it so that there is always a queue for the servers. Q. Why does it seem like you guys get frustrated when people ask certain questions? A. Seriously though, it's because they are normally questions that have been answered multiple times and most of the time it appears that the question wasn't thought about in the manner of "Hey I wonder if anybody else has posted about this." Unlike Battlelog where things normally get hidden and admins don't respond, we do see pretty much 99% of everything that is posted without it getting lost because of the fact that we have admins for each particular section of the community. And those admins do make sure that we respond to topics where someone might have a question. So with that last question being answerd, please just take 10 seconds to browse the forums and search to see if your topic has been discussed before you go and make a post. If it's not too old or hasn't been answered feel free to leave your input but a lot of the same questions are coming up over and over. Ping, ping, ping, why can't I use explosives, ping, ping, can we have more servers, why can't we have these maps, why do you only have like 200 tickets on the TDM server, 64 players is a lot of people to have on a server, where are the expansion maps, why is this person using curse words and racist remarks and hasn't been banned yet. As always we do appreciate and ask for suggestions but most of the questions that we see over and over have been answered and could be answered for you by making a search on the forums. Thank you for your support of the community and as always we will continue to provide the best possible gaming experience on our servers for as many people in the world.

No one to my knowledge.

Our Rush BF3 Server is ranked 10 in the world.

 

TDM BF3 is ranked 19 in the world.

 

most of the time they make the battlefield 4 servers look like crap activity wise.

Yes, this is true.

Okay, here's the deal. 

Battlefield 4 launched initially October, 2013. ADK wise, it did not get such a huge following (and take all of our players away from bf3) until the early summer of 2014. When I joined in April, teamspeak was full of bf3 players. We lost actually a few servers.

 

NOTE: numbers might be a little off.

- A Metro, no explosives (which we carried over to bf4, and look at the huge success we have had with it (and frustration from "@killing" people ;) )

-A three map rotation of: Caspian, Firestorm, Kharg (May 3, 2012- May 3, 2014)

- 24/7 Armored Kill | Conquest | 1000 Tickets. Which ran from (June 13, 2012- October 14, 2012)

- 24/7 Metro Conquest | 1000 Tickets Which ran from (May 1, 2012- Oct 31,2013)

- 24/7 Capture the Flag (Jan 21, 2012- May 14, 2013)

These servers, to my understanding went down to lack of donations (primarily), and server population/popularity 

It is unfortunate that these servers are no longer there. The turnout is: A few retired/resigned BF admins as well as some players within the community and pubs that are no longer with us. But these sorts of things happen, unfortunately. 

I'm pretty sure AOB would still have the five servers for BF3 if we could handle donations (and servers were popular, of course)But that is currently not feasible I believe. 

I do know this. The two bf3 servers remaining are not going anywhere, anytime soon, except up in ranking

The Euro no explosive server are full right now... there is demand for that kind of server but there is no server left in America.

 

Just made a print screen:

How much it cost to run a server like "metro 64 no explosive" ?  

Maybe we could find some donation ;)

I know it is only a matter of time before BF3 servers go down now that 4 has been out and that Battlefield Hardline is coming out. So get one of those to keep playing with :-) I will as soon as I have my new rig

Not sure if you read everything above. BF3 servers are not going anywhere anytime soon. And just because Hardline is coming out, doesn't mean BF3 will be forgotten. BFBC2 servers are still full, and so are COD4 servers. 

IMO, Hardline is a bad community investment, but that is just me.

Hardline will not have the following as the traditional BF series, imho, according to what I've been reading in the chat in BF4.....I think the BF player base doesn't like the theme, and is definitely gun shy considering EA's track record on new releases.....I know i won't be playing it or purchasing it for multiplayer use and will stick to BF4 for now until a good replacement FPS comes along.

I think that Hardline was great, I got accepted into the closed beta for it and I loved it! It is not exactly like the Battlefield you are used too, it is completly different than the previous games so you cant judge it on that alone, it is Cops and Criminals, not US vs Russia or some variant of that. I know that just because there have been 2 new releases after 3 dosent mean it will just dissapear, but I deffinetly forsee it going away within the next 2 years. Servers that I used to play have gone down, and stayed down and I am seeing less and less players in most server, In fact, I only remember seeing one other guy besides N00bWithGun72 wearing ADK tags, and no names reconize from the website on there. I still play Battlefield 2, 1942, and 2142, heck, I still play COD2! That just dosen't mean bf3 will still have alot of other players in the future, I know the Black Ops 2 population is dropping.

wow this thread got little of topic for a few... :D.   Everyone loves our rush server, and the tdm has players on it every second of the day, when most servers are dead or just few players on them.

 

BF3 will be around for another decade so lets all enjoy it. I try daily to get folks on TS, and for recruitment. It all starts with ADK players, admin or not to say HI when you join server. Chat with the other players, and be respectful always.

 

 

now could someone, or a business sponsor a server and bring back metro server? Would this be possible, and cost is what $500-$600 a year?

Donations. We get super fortunate with last minute $100 donations from people. That is the reason the servers were taken down in the first place. To essentially move over the donations to BF4.

Well i have a small i diea not to bring the servers back its to make sure that we have the chance to get them back :
How about if we create a topic we ask the members if they can and ready too donate for those servers , and if we find that there is members are ready to donate we can ask ABO to look in the case again .
What do u think @FeatherStone3 ?

I know we have 2 amazing servers ( TDM and Rush ) , but if u remember we use to have many people ( members and none members ) in Teamspeak and know as u can see there is a few players who in rush and tdm channel in teamspeak even that i can named them , if we could bring the metro server back i think that will bring more players to teamspeak and will we will have 3 amazing servers , but thats all wont happen unlise we find some members and people that donate to this server .

At the end as i said its up to ABO to decide .

Note : sorry u may find some wrong in my wards thats du to my english sorry for that .

When we are relying on the SAME awesome people every month to keep the servers online we are not even going to think about adding more servers.

This entire month we were at like 20% for battlefield donations until the big hitters stepped up like they tend to do. We can't depend on them and we won't depend other sections to keep servers online just because people want them.
