      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.

As you can obviously see, Caspian has been having a better population in our BF3 section, Even though BF3 is slowly dying, our caspian server will always be one of the more popular servers out of all our servers. I feel that we need to keep caspian over rush because rush isn't popular around us BF3 locals. No one in the BF3 section wants to play rush and thats why we go to caspian. I feel getting rid of a server that our community actually wants to play and wants to keep is going against our standards and ways of going about things. Its common sense, If we have members that favor something like caspian and enjoy playing it then why would we get rid of it? to suit population issues? if thats the case then get rid of rush.. Caspian brings us more enjoyment and players then any servers besides no ex. 
AS A CASPIAN PLAYER AND FORMER ADMIN, PLEASE CONSIDER KEEPING IT! FOR THE BF3 COMMUNITY!!

Doesn't look too good for Caspian rank wise.

 

If you don't want to see it go, I suggest that everyone who votes yes actually spend time populating it :) its my favorite BF3 server too but I don't have the time to populate or upkeep with it so I will not vote yes.

Okay great, Its not rank #1 in the world but so what? Dont get me wrong I have no fuckin idea what rank has to do with it, But as I see it, as in my opinion I think we should keep something that a majority of people want, And populating it? Hell yeah i'll jump on there when im bored out of my ass and play it, Thats not a problem, But i'll tell you I wont populate rush, because none of our community members play it, I'd populate it if it was fun to play, But I dont favor rush, I favor caspian, so does other people, and people who play on the server. 

I know rush is probably going to come out on top for reasons like its caspian is not a better rank then Caspian, Cool.. But if we are getting rid of it because of certain peoples preferences and going against what members feel is right and enjoy playing that certain game mode is wrong. WHAT I'm basically trying to say is I'm in favor of what is right for our members. I wouldn't get rid of something that our BF3 members enjoy playing, I don't see a reason like it not being rank #1 in the world so we are gunna remove and keep something that we don't play. In my head it doesn't make sense at all to get rid of something that we play, rather then keeping something that a bunch of random people on the internet play. Why not do it for the members and for the people who are actually on the inside like myself, Thump, Zep, and the other BF3 people. So if we enjoy something more then something else then why dont we actually remove that something that no one really wants.
If it means more money for the community then cool, go for it.. but it really disappoints me to see something that McThump and I and many others really like playing to go. It will always be a place to have fun. And if it must go then so be it. I really want the best for the BF3 community and I feel getting rid of our favourite Vehicle server a sad and foolish thing to do.  ( General post to others, Not directly pointed at nova) 
-Thanks @Novaura no need to comment with anything on the other post, I've read it.

There's all this talk about "we should keep this, we should keep that"  when in reality it should be "Here's my money each month to cover part of the server, I have 5 other people who are willing to split the cost as well.  Can we keep the server running"

 

As with all of our Battlefield Servers, we're pretty much running on empty right now and this IS the last month that determines the fate of the battlefield community.    Both Rush/Caspian will be on their way out if things don't change and we don't start seeing income for the servers.     The BF4 Servers are the same way about being on their way out.  

 

Why should we continue to keep something just because "it's a fun server and we all love it" when there's no money coming in for these servers?  

 

 

 

So some people might get offended with this, but people need to start putting their money where their mouth is in regards to our Battlefield servers.     Please realize just because 10 people find it fun doesn't mean that it's worth while for us to have due to the money aspect.   If $10 people who donate want the server to stay around, that's a different story.    There is not an unlimited amount of funds here though, and the fat is starting to be cut. 

 

 

Now for those of you who don't understand the ranking and why it's important - the lower the rank the lower the amount of people who are coming into your server.   In Battlefield 3 due to the small number servers that BF3 still has up and running.   Having a rank of 300 right now is like having a rank of 2,000 in BF4.     There's only roughly 1,000 BF3 servers that are running in the world and I'd say only 50 of them are probably full 24/7 anymore.  So as much as people hate on us for bringing up these stats and numbers; when you say "it's our favorite and that's why we joined, it should still be up compared to another server"  you might want to first check the stats of the other server that's going down hill, and then see how much people are donating to keep the server online.  

 

 

I will be editing the poll to reflect what the real questions should be.

Poll has been edited accordingly to reflect the real issue at hand.   It's not a matter of rush vs caspian - it's a matter of are we getting donations for the servers or no?

My understand was that this was gunna be a removal of only one server, Which is why I made this. I was told that one was gunna be removed and the other to stay, but in the case that both need to be removed for money reasons okay

Originally it was going to be one server, but looking at both of them over the past month there is no reason to keep either with the lack of funds coming in.   All BF3 servers have slowly been taking their toll and unfortunately it's not looking good in the end.

And now he calls me fat!!!                                                                                                                                         :D

 

 

Yup, AOB, I totally get it.  I got no arguments with any of that - never had.  If it goes, I will be disappointed, but life will go on.

LOL 

 

 

In all seriousness I'd love to have the servers until literally the game is dead. .   But unless we have someone with large pockets who will just give us money to keep the servers hosted each month it can't happen.    The servers are just too damn expensive and we'd be better off to get dedicated servers and try to move into games that we can host if we want multiplayer fps games if we can't bring in enough funds each month.
