      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.

BF3 vs BF4

Recommended Posts

Battlefield 4 gives me a sense of accomplishment because I still have things to be ranked up and unlocked. But Battlefield in general runs better and looks better. Somedays I am convinced BF3 is the better game but I keep hoping between both titles. What pushes me away from BF4 is the constant FPS drop and crashes. But having a goal keeps me coming back for more. 

Anyone else feel this frustration? Playing both games is fine, but which one is better.

bf3 seems more fluid in movement on screen...bf4 might be better if it had shipped playable instead of the cluster fuck it is...has got a somewhat better...I still play both when bf3 works...not sure if bf4 tainted it in some way...seems to crash a lot...

Bf4 feels like a downgrade coming from Bf3, the new amount of guns and fancy add ons is nice, but the game overall feels a lot worse, personally i can live without the buildings all falling for decent game play of Bf3.

BF4 is incredibly buggy (moreso than even BF3 was at launch), the gunplay feels forced and uncontrolled (when you can reg) and completely non-existent most of the time due to the terrible netcode. It seems like almost every gunfight ends with a trade. The recoil just feels very sporadic and uncontrollable on most guns, and then non-existent on others.

 

The game at large just doesn't feel polished or ready for release. If I was testing an alpha I'd say it has a future to it, but as a released game it's just a pile of shit that should be scrapped, peoples' money refunded, and then re-released in a year or two when it's actually finished and polished and worth releasing. DICE has gone way downhill in development quality, which is only exacerbated by EA's unrealistic deadlines in an attempt at beating CoD.

 

BF3 is by far the superior game in terms of playability, although BF4 has it's bright points, not the least of which being a great variety of gameplay, which is one thing it definitely has over BF3.

Have spent more time in BF4, and since i started BF3 some 1 month before BF4 launch i didn't have the reference you guys with longer playtime. But as time go I tend to like BF3 more than 4, it feels better. Still noobish in both, but i agree with above posters. BF3 over 4

4 has its issues, I've heard 3 also had a ton of issues at release. Ultimately 4 will be the better game imo. Maps like lockers, and the new metro with more opportunities to flank make for better maps and gameplay. Now if they fix AA/MLRS sitting in uncap, possibly raise heli flight ceilings, and nerf AA active radar missiles conquest will be great.

It's not fun in 3 when some TV scrub is sitting out of bounds launching missiles from his cobra all day. Metro just turns into a giant stalemate because everyone wants to bipod.

Lockers is almost the same, but 2-3 people can push hard outside, flank, backcap, and force people to move out of C allowing your team to move up. Things like that make for better gameplay. Dice is also supposed to be releasing a large patch for several issues this week/beg of feb.

3 never had the same kinds of issues at launch that 4 did. Most of BF3's bugs were largely inconsequential to the actual nuts and bolts of gameplay. The big problem with BF3 in the beginning and really all the way til the last patch was that DICE blows hard at actually balancing the game. But there is a difference between balance and bugs. BF3 has had it's fair share of bugs, but they were not, IMO, nearly as game-breaking as the bugs in BF4. There is also the issue that unless DICE actually recodes almost the entirety of BF4, the netcode in BF4 is far inferior to the netcode in BF3, which means all else equal, BF3 will still feel a lot smoother.

 

I agree BF4 does have more overall potential, but I just never see DICE actually getting there with the game. It floundered and flopped at launch after the most hype I think any game has gotten in a long time. Those pissed off players won't bother trying it again for a looooooong time, if at all. DICE put the perverbial gun to their head when the released the game in the state it was a launch.

I'm no expert but I think (and this isnt pointed at you specifically) people scream netcode without having a clue what theyre talking about.

My ability to land 200+ m headshots while semi suppressed in BF4 competely blows bf3 out of the water. Always befuddled me when I was using a long rifle, little to no sway, yet my bullet would go flying off by a foot in any random direction while suppressed. 

everything else that needs to be said has been said by others.

This is a ignorant topic.

Battlefield 3 was released in Oct. 2011. Dice/EA has had well over a two years to get the game where it is today. You all are so quick to forget the many fucking problems BF3 has had with the same shit your hating on in Battlefield 4. Same exact fucking problems and some of you in this topic I remember listening to you bitch about it.

Battlefield 4 has only been out now for 4 months and you are comparing it to game that has gone through 2 years of updates and patches to get it where it is today. Quit being cancer and hating on your community. Give the the game time to evolve and get patched.

I get so tired of seeing people complain about Battlefield 4 it's unreal and it's one of the reasons I quit being the Battlefield VA cause I was tired of adults crying about a video game stiring shit. Edited by Pepsi

Battlefield 4 seems to be too easy. The bullets kill faster and guns have less recoil. I'm not complaining at all about the visuals or bugs, even though I like how vivid BF3 is compared to the dull color scheme of BF4, but when I did play BF4, the skill level required to be good dropped waaay down. I know there shouldn't be any judgement on low level players killing you, especially when the game just came out, but being killed from across the map by a level one witht the default loadout that is standing in the middle of a white feild dressed in black staring at the ground jumping all around is redonculous,

 

Although I can only judge on behalf of console, as that's what I played it on before I built this PC, but I'm sure the playerbase is far advanced, and superior on PC right?

 

Right?

I don't know what it is, but I just like the feel of battlefield 3 way more than battlefield 4. I mean 4 is enjoyable, I loved the campaign but the multiplayer I just can't really get into. I don't know why, I'd probably get into it if I played it more but, the technical issues with battlefield 4, even with my build I have problems with it. So all in all, battlefield 3 is better to me.

BF3 and BF4 are basically the same to me but BF4  has slightly better graphics and just a little more than BF3.  Example BF4 you can put more attachments to your guns and the commander mode...thats about it.  On the other hand BF3 is more stable and has less glithces and bugs.  Like I said they both feel that same but if I had to choice I would probaly say BF4(even with all the bs) over BF3 but thats just me beside BF4 just looks cooler.
