      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.

BF4 Feedback & Suggestions

Recommended Posts

As things get under way we will be posting rules to our servers.    As we will have anywhere from 2 - 4 Official Servers of course we have no control over them.   If you find someone who is indeed hacking and they are in any of those servers please submit a ban request so we can look at their info and possibly ban them from our other servers before they even make it there.  

 

 

 

General Server Rules:

 

  • No hacking/cheating/glitching/exploiting
  • No Griefing Friendlies**
  • Use common sense - spamming chat is one of those common sense things.  Spamming chat constantly with nonsense will get you warned and then kicked.   If you come back with a hot head further action will be taken
  • Respect =ADK=, it's members, admins, and players on the server***
  • If you're not an admin, please refrain from admining the servers in chat, this can get you punished and many are giving out bad information.

 

Operation Lockers NO EXPLOSIVES Servers:

  • NO EXPLOSIVES including using explosives to make holes or damage the map. If a weapon is  not allowed any use can get you "Punished"*
  • If found using Mortars you will be punished as it's not currently detected
  • Same rules as general server rules apply
  • No 3rd or 2nd Floor Glitching at C Flag 
  • Rules are strict to keep things simple for the server and admins instead of allowing the 320 for this load and not that load, it just isn't allowed period (few weapons that way so be sure to read below )
  • Bi-poding is not considered a glitch in BF 4 as there are flanking routes etc..  with the exception of 1 place underneath C tower. Only that place will be punishable and only with video proof if no admin is in game.
  • Depopulating and raping the server is on a case by case basis. This requires a video from the players first person view and third person view showing a crazy score and almost never moving from one spot. All ban requests for BF 4 Bi-pod glitches will be locked without video proof.

 

 

* Weapons not allowed on the server: 

 

Shotguns:

Frag rounds on all Shotguns

 

Grenades:

Frag

Mini

Impact

Incendiary

Smoke

Flashbang

Flare

 

Assault Gadgets:

M320 with explosive & smoke rounds

 

Engineer Gadgets:

M15 AT MINE

M2 SLAM MINE

FIM-92 STINGER

RPG-7V2

SA-18 IGLA

MK153 SMAW

FGM-148 JAVELIN

FGM-172 SRAW

 

 

Support Gadgets:

M18 CLAYMORE

XM25 AIRBURST AMMO & XM25 SMOKE

M224 MORTAR

C4 EXPLOSIVE

 

Recon Gadgets:

M18 CLAYMORE

C4

 

**Griefing friendlies can be taken multiple ways.   But we will be applying it to blowing up friendly assets, vehicles included.    Something that will not be considered will be closing things like doors, gates, etc...behind you unless one individual is in your squad following you doing it constantly to effect you.   

 

 

*** If someone decides to use words that are offensive we will not punish right away for such.   Admins know and have the limits of what they are supposed to do.   If they see something getting out of hand they will take care of it.    But for someone using curse words or racist terms, they will not be kicked/banned unless they are asked to calm down and don't do such.     Everyone has different values on what is offensive and what isn't.   So rather than being the =ADK= police we let things like that slide until they get out of hand.     If you aren't certain if what someone says is too much, simply make a request to an admin to get their opinion or post a ban request with a mature explanation.   Not one of you being pissed off, cursing, etc, etc. . 

 

 

Updated: 12/24/2013

(These rules can change at any time, please make sure to visit this topic frequently to see if anything has changed)

Hopefully the cheat o meters i use will update to BF4 tonight or tomorrow so we can get a good view of their dmg mods as well (if they use any).

 

@AOBLXIX

 

Are the BF3 bans carrying over to BF4? Or is our player IDs changing?

Bans do not carry over but can be used against a player suspected of cheating. Once a cheater always a cheater.

Seriously, how much money do you want for a single hardcore server?

Is that in the cards?

a 64 slot server is 115ish

 

edit 70 slot

Because we're not going to police the entire server.   This is not turning into the current metro that we have now.      That list was posted the middle of last week sometime.   People are going to say "How come I can use this one but not that one"   It's simple to fix it, say no to all of em. . . everything along those lines is a negative.   Period end of discussion.

Any chance of adding an admin message on the no explosives server saying that all grenades are prohibited?

just felt the need to comment on the the NO EXPLOSIVES rule. The use of flares and smoke should no way be included in this rule as neither , to my knowledge, have the ablity to kill an enemy the same way as all the other weapons on the list. On top of this being told a person would be ban for using these weapons seems counter productive. Think of this are you going to stop a person from using a flashlight because it blinding an enemy the same way a flare does. Sorry but I like the server just seems overly strict on things that can help your team but not kill an enemy.

Your option is acknowledge. How ever i do not agree with you. First of all. If you scroll up in this thread you will find a post from ColColonCleaner. Confirming that flares can actually kill.

 

And now we can talk about Flare, Flashbang and Smoke. They actually do damage. It's 5 damage point. Small damage, yes. But you can be killed by it. I've seen it, and i think the admins can back me up with log files from the server if needed.

 

If you have been playing on other ADK servers with "No Explosives" rules. You will see that, Smoke is not allowed there as well. So it's just fair to not allow does item in Battlefield 4.

I agree with all the rules my only worry is that I would put glares in the grenade spot so I would not use an explosive accidently, lol I hope that you can leave that spot empty ao I wont toss something.

the no explosives rule does make the game more fun since your not getting grenade and rocket m320  spammed, I am a claymore addict but can always use them on different servers. 

How about a pistol and knife server I really enjoy those that I have found. :)

That was the same thought process I had when using smoke Stoney. I don't want to break the rules but hell it's so hard not to when you can still equip weapons that will get you kicked.  Maybe one day the option will be avilable for servers to block certain weapons until then maybe it'll be best for me to avoid such servers. Thanks anyways for hearing me out on this.

Two things:
flares and smoke are banned mainly because it prevents people from disputing their ban by saying "I accidently had nades equipped I meant to use flares."

Also you can choose to have no equipment equipped

and I don't understand everyone's problem with not being able to train yourself not to throw a grenade type item on a no explosive server if you cant control your habit then you shouldn't be allowed on the server its as simple as that it literally took me the first game or so to train myself not to use it its honestly not that hard guys

Flairs deal no damage. 

 

Smoke and Bangs deal 5% damage and are caught IF they kill with one. I am discussing this in another topic at the moment and will come to a definite ruling about spammers of those items. If a ruling does going into effect where we will be kicking people or temp ban people for smoke and flash spam expect to have a video ready for admins to see the spammer in action or a admin on duty in the server. This would not be something we could just look up stats for or go by word of mouth on.
