      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.

The first couple of months can be donation supported solely by myself depending on the costs. 

However, donations from members will be required in order to maintain it.

Currently I am working on who could host. Right now I am seeing a lot of places that we can go to but as far as who is better is still up in the air. But average cost from the looks of it rn for a 50 slot server an procon as it is needed I have seen it from 62.15 to 75.00.

Again we want to provide a good host so till I can find out more i am guessing it will be anywhere from 60.00 to 75.00 a server

Either day is fine with me. 

Sunday at 7pm PST I'll be doing the final walk through on my new house, so actually, anytime in the early afternoon would be best.

first thanks to Bluemoon for directing me to this topic :)

 

great stuff I will be happy to see it back online ..... I believe I was the last one to leave the server as I remember I stayed the whole day to populate and I came back to my PC and it was disconnected from the game and boom the server not in my FAV list anymore ...  was happy with 600 rep and "whitelisted" :), so remember I want it back :ph34r:

also I can't promise to help with donation but I can help with populating it for sure.

 

looking forward for good news guys

 

peace

Not sure if @Spanky will reply to this or not. But I'll be covering the cost of the BF4 server @Darknae until we get donations in and it can support itself. Right now, there's no sense in pushing a BF1 server that can't be populated due to poorly executed system. The community wants a BF4 server.

Hello BF Players, 
 
 So after really looking into it an gathering a lot of information on  getting a BF4 server i have found a host that we can go to. 

Currently they are also having a sale for first time signers and this would work for us in reducing the server amount. 
 
Currently we are looking at getting a BF server with 60hz 70 slot server. The cost for this server is 1.29 per player at normal cost but sense we would be considers NEW owners to this company we would get a 20% discount. We would also get additional discount if we did a monthly pack with them EI Month to month + No Discount, 3 months + %5 discount, 6 months + 10% discount, 12 months + 15% discount. 

So I do not know how ling this is going on for so I ask you which do you want

So here is the prices as followed

  1. 1 month is 90.95 = This would be the amount per month if we choose this option.
  2. 3 months is 259.21 = This would be the amount owed every 3 months if we did this option.
  3. 6 months is 491.13 = This would be the amount owed every 6 months if we did this option.
  4. 12 months is 927.69 = This would be the amount owed every 12 months if we did this option.


These prices include all discounts. So think this over to be honest we would only to the first 3 options and never do a 12 month deal so now it is based on donations to do this we would need donation in to get this an then once we get it it would need to make sure donations come in to keep it. If we cancel this at any time we lose the discount amount and then would need to pay the full amount to keep it so think this over and let us know how I should take this.

I haven't played Battlefield in years. I used to play on PS3 playing BF3. Never tried BF4, guess it's time to download it and give it a whirl.
