      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.

Ever get called a hacker or glitcher? What do you do?

Recommended Posts

Seems I get called out a lot in ADK #6 ever since the bi-pod case.  I can be running around gunning with my pistol and still get called a bi-pod/head glitcher now it seems.  

 

I had someone even suggest I was using a hack today because they lost a few fire fights with me on the run and they left me low on health but I lucked out and didn't die.  I am better in lockers than in most other situations though.  I usually come out with more kills than deaths no matter what I play (with the exception of air superiority).

 

I am just curious what everyone does when they are called out.  Rage, laugh, cry, etc.  I try to ignore it but generally after a really good round I will either take a break to give people time to stop worrying about me or I will switch weapons and kits and try to unlock some stuff.

 

I know I am not that good of a player I just know the map well enough to know where people like to camp and how to use choke points.  Also knowing how to use the mini map is a huge help.  Sometimes I kill people I can't even see by firing random bursts into areas I know people like to camp.

 

The MG4 is a beast whether shoulder fired or setup with a bi-pod.

 

 

 

I didn't get called out nearly as much in BF3 but I do remember my favorite one was on Caspian when I was sniping and someone ran right into a shot that had gone over my intended targets head at like 900+ meters and it was a perfect head shot.  He raged for a little while about me hacking but it was funny as hell.

It may sound jaded, but I generally don't do anything special when I'm called a hacker, it happens far too much now for me to care, especially in metro and caspian. It's nice to know you're doing well when you get hackusated but it's just something I expect now...

I get called it sometimes just for having a Decent Score on TDM and 95% of games im in the top 3 on a team, I ignore it, personally, i hate people that call anyone better than they are hackers just because they are better players, just pathetic and childish imo.

First thing i would tell you is to STOP HACKING.......lol anyway j/k.

I would just ignore it, if someone keeps coming at you about it, well that is what reports are for. They can submit a report, we an do our jobs and check out the stats, and well if you are not hacking well then joke is on them.

That is the best part about BF4 now - the spectator mode. Cant really hide much there, so dont take it personally, if you are not cheating then well take it as a complement that you are doing well.

Not that i would now about that, i am normally the person getting mad that i just got "one shotted" by someone. Edited by Cagregorio

I don't usually pay attention to chat, so I don't even know if I am being accused. I know I am not hacking. The spectator mode knows I'm not. Punk Buster knows I'm not. so it doesn't matter to me.

Someone was complaining last night because I killed him 6 times in a row in the exact same spot.  Kept popping his head out in the same area giving me a clean shot.  Didn't even notice until some other ADK member started laughing about the chat comments.

once you get the reputation of a glitcher once it stays for a long time.  you kinda had that coming too. 

The problem with this is that I never knowingly glitched and after it was pointed out that my gun was through a wall I changed my game up.  I was completely cleared of glitching since it wasn't my fault that the camera angles are different.  

 

I agree with the fact that once someone calls you a glitcher or cheat it snowballs whether right or wrong but to say I had it coming is a bunch of BS.  Basically it is saying anyone who plays well on a map is asking to be called a cheat whether they are or aren't and it is their fault.

so while your bipoded very close to corners, knowing that in bf3 it gave you an advantage, it never crossed your mind that you never got killed because the game glitches corners out?  i understand you quite and thats awesome but just because you didnt know isnt a reason that people shouldnt call you a glitcher.  thats my opinion sorry if my opinion offends you. im an opinionated person.

Actually I didn't bi-pod often in BF3 and it was my understanding that only a few places were glitched in BF3 as far as bi-pods were concerned like in Metro where you could kneel and bipod your weapon into a wall.  Yes placing a bi-pod close to a corner is an advantage just like standing in a corner but it doesn't mean I was trying to glitch my gun through the wall.  Also I often did take damage I just didn't die because of health packs being all around me.

 

And as it is currently ADK says that bi-podding isn't glitching so really I am not breaking any rules even if I did want to use my bi-pod more often.

Also I would like to move away from the whole bi-podding incident.  It is done and over with this thread is more to find out how different people handle being called a glitcher, hacker, cheat, etc.  

 

Like I said I usually ignore it, but I have had a couple of incidents where ADK members started in on it and those are the ones that irked me the most granted it hasn't really happened lately in game.  As a community I feel we are supposed to stick together not start lynch mobs against one another.  We all make mistakes and we learn from them or we don't.  As far as I know I have been a model community member with little to no issues.

 

I understand your opinion and that is your right and I won't hold it against you but I stand by my opinion that I did nothing wrong and therefor am wrongly labeled in that department.  

 

 

 

So back on topic how do people handle being called hackers, cheaters, glitchers, etc when they are legit players?

Alot of it also has to do with the internals of BF4. The same thing does not always show up on both players screens. I had in incident in TS where a member killed me on their screen, but on my screen I got the kill cam/killed by of a different player. Likewise lag compensation means that while on your screen you round a corner see an enemy, exchange rounds, and win, on his screen he was camping the corner opened up on you as soon as you came into view and you magically spun around and one shot him after he clip dumped you. Clearly that didn't happen, but as I said the information you are actually shown from this game rarely completely syncs up with what is actually happening.

 

So it's easy to see what is, rightfully on your screen, "bs", and simply say yeah fuck that dude is hacking. Most players take what they see at face value and don't really care about netcode/lag compensation and the like. I would say most haccusations are situations like that, while a good chunk of others are just players that can't take losing regardless of what shows up on their screen.

At one point I was part of a competitive Minecraft scrim team, and we had a full team duel (both teams run the opposite direction in a line and whip around and shoot at the same time) and our archers were so good that the other team was convinced we were hacking. We responded by standing still on top of a hill and letting them have free shots at us, and watching as they missed......every single time....

 

I also have been called for aimbotting on this > http://youtu.be/9o4Jk2To0Fg?t=4m3s several times. (4:03)  (Don't watch the rest, it's trash.) 

 

Idk, laugh in their faces and walk away. Consider it a compliment (as long as you're not actually hacking.)
