      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.

Only played a few rounds, with the L86A2. I'm in heaven. Head glitching is not possible and the servers are filling up/ full. Magic :D

Head glitch might be fixed, but the bipod whores are still whoring it up.

Yeah, the bipod corner glitch still lives on in infamy......lol

 

Oh, well....nothing's perfect....

 

AN94 is good, but now you can't find a support in the servers....lol

 

Cheers!

According to the updated notes they decided not to include that update in this patch, will have to wait for the next.

I'd feel better with the Patch. The Weapons are more balanced. The M416 is finally a deadly Weapon against AEK and F2K. I really love the M416  :wub:

 

LMG's: The L86 is a very nice balanced LMG, a good weapon between Assault Rifle and an LMG. The Accuracy is pretty good and it aims much faster as my lovely M249 :) 

Netcode Fixes: I had problems while starting up with the new Patch. I fixed it with a Gamerepair over Origin and my FPS crashes and lags are fixed. (Looks like) :D

Shotguns are now the go to's in most scenarios. The updated damage model makes them stupidly ridiculous...11.2 as max damage, min is 5.6. Something like 19-21 pellets on the 870, uts and spas. Combine this with an increased hip fire accuracy and tighter shot pattern (full choke and update) and that thing is clear cut above any other weapon to take at ranges below 50m.

Lag seems to be more evident and choppy. I've had multiple people tell me the game seems to crap out and get choppy more frequently. I've had FPS drops from 100-40 or so at the same time as various others (so its more than likely not my GPU crapping out) Someone on reddit was saying its server side CPU issues...I don't know enough to say what really is the case. 

One hit kills and various hit detection things like @[member='Surdawi'] said appears to have gotten worse...I occasionally see the bullets that kill me fly by my arms or go way wide, only to be hit by them. Pretty sad when I think I've danced around a guys shotgun blast only to get pulled back and killed but c'est la vie. 

Tracers. I wonder if this was testing for battlefront? Fun note. I think on the LSAT (or M60), if you ADS and fire, you can see the tracers appearing half way through your barrel. 

Headshots are still a bit wonky IMO but that's balance for ya and 2 shot headshot requirements. Nailed a guy in the face with the mare's leg across the metro, no kill (I have my headshot markers a different colour, so I know I landed it) Also pretty sure you can't break shield glass with the mare's leg (surprising since its .44, but I think they coded the round differently and wouldn't be surprised if they forgot that buff)

AN-94 is ridiculously easy to use on burst. Shoots stupid fast, minimal recoil. Muzzle brake, angled foregrip and you can easily compensate for whatever recoil there is.

As for the head glitching fix, I guess its working. Its weird user end when you see your gun clear a wall, only to fire and shoot the wall. 

SRAWs are supposedly giant paper weights now as well (have yet to test them)

 

And everyone's kits got reset to...yay! At least that's consistent.

Overall, I think this patch is sketchy. Not amazing (fall patch was actually pretty good) but not outright shit either. I just forsee a giant uts and shotgun spam in the future.

I am a huge MG4 user and I have to say if someone begins shooting at me even after I've opened fire they can easily take me out. The sudden intake of any suppression from any weapon renders the weapon useless. I can also shoot directly at a player without taking any fire and 'miss' half the shots. They just disappear in mid air. And I have excellent accuracy.

They didn't tell us any information about what the crap they're doing with the UCAV, everyone assumes its another nerf because of all the whiny complainers. My K/D isn't improving as much as I wanted it to because of this xD. Although I so glad they took the ladders down so there won't be any more camping.

The weapons are a nice add in, but I encountered audio problems I didn't have a week ago, still get head glitching but not as brutally obvious.

 

I havent encountered lavo'ing (bipoding) yet, however I feel I am done with the game and going to move on (maybe play a match here and there).  Now I am hooked on CS:GO.

Whoever OK'd the flash bang change needs a swift kick in the stomach with a machete. There is a delay for UCAV/Mortar deployment. You have it but it shows zero ammo and you have to wait. The shotgun buff is ridiculous and wasn't needed at all. The netcode fix made the one hit kills more prevalent. Mare's Leg is a useless pea shooter.

 

The AN-94 and L86 are the only good things so far.

 

I also noticed that I can't uncheck the box to disable Origin in-game. It's stuck on...

The netcode fixes where not all implemented on this patch. They did rearranged how some data was prioritized and tweaks to the cone around your player (cone has higher tick rate).

As always, this game has huge amounts of data requirements un like any other game. Obviously the world isn't ready (internet backbone mainly). Where Hardline plays better because it has a more standered requirements with out all the destruction. Blaze backend with receiving all your server and player info is another huge data issue that ties up the system too.

Just fyi.

The patch for me has pros and cons.  Cons, as i have been getting one shot by guns that shouldn't one hit kill, and getting killed behind a wall.  It's increased more since the patch so that sucks.  The game feels smoother in terms of FPS, so that's nice.  Pros, as I feel like some of the weapons i used before feel easier to use/buffed, but other than that, I'm fine with the patch.  The new weapons, I have mixed feelings.  Mares leg for me, is more aesthetic than practical.  The Groza's, Eh, i am not a fan of them.  Other than these quirks, the patch has been great!
