      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.

Things never stays as what it is , things change with life , go up or getting down, In the last 4 years i have been here in ADK my only hope is not to see this day that i will be making this topic ,But here it comes , 4 years of success , 4 years of happiness , 4 years of entertainments in one of the best if not the best sections in ADK , THE BATTLEFIELD . It was truly A DIFFERENT KIND .

 

In the last 4 years we have met , played , hangout with amazing people , considered them all as a family and a part of our lives , Some has left , some will never left , And some will always be in our hearts for life . In this section we had amazing times that any other section wont be able to provide to there lovers . And now it's the time to say Goodbye to it . 

 

We have been fighting for the last 2 years to stay up , fighting all DICE and EA bad  decisions in what related to the RSP ( Renting Service Program ) , They broke what they have build in BF3 and BF4 down , They toke out what any other gaming community needs to keep their BF sections up , and sadly them have made it . We tried and tried and tried , But nothing was working , we were wasting out times and our energy that if we used it in other thing it could done a lot of things , but we no , we put all our hard work as a staff for the section to make it raise up like what it was before , but we were fighting Something bigger as i mentioned , EA/DICE .

As a Staff in the BF section , i have seen and had the pleasure to be on of this amazing Team , people that put everything they have for this section, hours and hours of working for ADK, not getting paid , not getting anything , the only thing that they were getting from all what they were doing is the RESPECT that was enough for them , hearing "Thank you for your hard work" was enough for them to know that they did something in their free times . It was enough for me to keep doing what i was doing , in great manner , great effort to keep the BF section always in the top , And we made it , We reached to the top .

 

But like any other thing that reached the top , you have to fight to keep it there , and we lost that fight , and Now the time has come to take a rest and thinks of the future that maybe it hold something that can help us bring This section back to life . 

 

To all the STAFF : 

I want to thank each on of you for your guys hard work , for each min you guys put here , without you guys we wont be a life since this place started 9 years ago , without you we wont see ADK in the top from thousands of gaming communities around the world , we have reached that cause of your guys work and loyalty to ADK . 

Populating the servers with you guys for hours and hours makes me know you well , makes me feel like we are not thousands of miles away , no , it was like we are a room a way from each other , being with you truly make us one family , a family that will never dies . So i want to say thank you so much , thank you so much for your hard work , for being with us till the end , thank you for anything you have done , whither you still here or not , you were a part of US , you were a part of this great section . 

Thank you for being A DIFFERENT KIND . 

 

Our VA word to us : 

 

Screenshot_26.png.ec2312dc5fb6927ffb1aed5bdb287c28.png

 

To all the people who played and helped us in the section :

You guys and girls part of this great family , without you guys we wont have a section , playing in the servers with you for 4 years made us a strong family , built a strong relationship between us , You also should take the credit for your great work helping us keeping this section life , You guys truly A DIFFERENT KIND . 

 

 

These are moments i wont forget for my life in ADK as a BF staff and a BF player , moments that never going to die with this section . 

 

 

In the end , i want to say that we might come back in the future , so Please don't forget us .

Well, we all saw this moment coming since the RSP was released. With almost no tools to keep a server running on Battlefield 1 (Which includes the 20 players to start minimum and also the traffic that you get from Quick Match Which is NONE, The only way to get people was spreading the word, inviting randoms and posting in forums/websites/reddit), the lack of communication from the developers of DICE/EA is awfully horrendous, we called out so many times the things we needed to keep servers up and running but the only thing we get is "We are working on it"... 

It is sad to say goodbye to the sections that, at its peak, brought a lot of new people to the community where they were having fun playing and helping us. We tried our best to keep the section going but with all the effort we couldn't save it from this very moment. Thinking on all that we did to keep it going from shutting down BF3 and BF4 servers,trying to populate BF1 with all the settings against us, from the 20 men to start the game to the Custom label that is was used to differentiate the official servers from DICE/EA from the RSP users , then coming back to Battlefield 4 to "try again" the formula we had gain over the years there, but sadly it was gone when we shut down the servers a while back.

I will keep good memories from this experience here, from meeting all of you guys to being part of the staff (which i enjoyed the most of it). here is a playlist from all the recordings that i did on the servers (sorry for the quality i had a potato PC at that time)

We were named by DICE for the professionalism we showed to manage the server, we were the best and still are the best doing on what we were trained. With all said by @LaithSJ it is time not to say goodbye, but a see you soon. Thanks to all the Battlefield staff, oldies to the newst.

@Darknae @Zaizz @F34RL3SS it was a pleasure to meet you all and work along side of you.
