      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.

I am starting this thread for all of you who are proud to show off your custom emblems made in Battlelog.  Let's see those skills!  As you are allowed to make multiple emblems, post a link to any if not all of them.

 

The best way to post them is to go to your soldier> overview> click on emblem [this bring up a bigger version]>right click>copy image url> then paste it in the image properties as a reply.

 

Let's get some creative competition going when you have time! :P

This is one I made so far, going to use the triangles now to try and mimic our emblem as close as possible, still trying to figure out a way to spell out ADK

Second emblem I just made. I'd say it's pretty close, I'm not graphic major but I tried =\

I was attempting the same concept last night.  I deleted a layer by accident so i'll try later.  The second one looks quite similar.

I've seen half of these posted elsewhere on the net. >_>

@[member='Pepsi']....  That's some fine criticism for someone that hasn't posted any emblems yet.  I've seen timers before.

I'm not sure whether I like this or Butters on the side of my SCAR. :P

@doughboy60 [wont link you for some reason] if you don't use a BG behind it, it will go on the weapon better.  I just took what you did and copied the logo layers and offset them.

I thought it would be funny if my vehicle's looked like they had pizza delivery decals on them.

Can we get an "official" emblem to show off and for people to see in bf4?

I will sacrifice myself and let them knife me a couple of times in a round :)

@[member='caveman70']  If someone decides to do/choose and official emblem you would still have to make it yourself as you can not import emblems (as it stands).  So even if there is an official "emblem" they will most likely all look slightly different, if you indeed want an adk emblem I suggest looking at @[member='doughboy60'] 's earlier post or mine [I used his idea just layered it differently] as you can do the logo with only 6 layers.  It looks nice on the vehicles/weapons and can be made fairly quickly.

 

@[member='Pepsi']  I'm just referencing Pepsi for the quote above, as he is the gfx guy.

ok, it would have been too easy I suppose... 

Will try to make the best of it.

Yeah the top one I did in 5 layers, the back layer is the big circle stretched out like a canvas set to black.

2nd and 3rd layers are the same thing just flipped and stretched.

The 4th layer is the triangle scaled to the picture as best as possible

I have a 5th layer, it's the square in black to make the triangle get a sharper edge.

 

I used the same ideas I did with cod and implemented it in BF4's emblem system.

 

The 2nd emblem I did is about 13 layers, that one was a bit annoying trying to get both sides perfect so I did it as best I could. I could make a video if you'd like just let me know.

@[member='Pepsi']  I wish they would have went with MOWF style, but as it's on weapons/vehicles I can understand why they wouldn't want the patch look.  MOWF did a very nice little stitch pattern.  I kinda hope they change the emblem editor a little bit, I'd like to see a couple more symbols and maybe 10 more layers if not unlimited.  It would be nice if you could just merge layers to free up more room, as I'd like to get a little more intricate on my emblem.  I am noticing more and more people having their emblems show up when I die which is nice.  

 

As I'm a big Indianapolis Colts NFL fan [being from Indiana] I made this one fairly quickly for my very limited time in MOWF

They really limited the stuff that we can use (again) which is stupid and they need to let us import emblems.  

 

I tried to make an emblem a few times, but I couldn't save it for some reason. :(
