      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.

Jet Ramming, Is it griefing?

Recommended Posts

Jet ramming is the act of a player using a jet as a weapon to ram into another vehicle such as a tank, or more commonly, another jet or chopper. The player attempts to line up their jet in such a way that when it hits its target, both the target and the jet are blown up and everyone is given a KIA.

 

There are plenty of forum posts all over the web talking about jet rammers, and how much of a pain they are. But would a player who is constantly jet ramming other players be griefing? Personally, the odd jet ram once a game is nothing, I have done it by accident before. But then we get those players who make it a mission to jet ram several times over and over in a single match. Even targeting a single player to ram. These players are in my eye, griefing not only the players they kill, but their team as the waste a jet that could have gone to someone who could have put it to use. These players do make people want to leave the server as well as cause others to rage in chat. I know personally I was ready to kick a player today for constant jet ramming, even called them out on it and still had them jet ram. I had to end up leaving the server because of the fact that I was unable to play in a chopper or in an armored vehicle because I would get rammed. 

 

What are your thoughts on jet rammers? Is it griefing? Let me know.

I dont think it is necessarily griefing, it depends on the player. Its a low move to do either way, but some players do it because they are out of ammo or have been seriously wounded. I think it is only griefing if thats your intention upon you getting in the jet.

Prove that?!....It's no different that jeep jihading with C4....Happens all the time........You won't be able to prove intent, and even if it is or was the pilot's intent to ram, it's still a legal kill.   Destroying team assets can be griefing, but not this, imho......

 

Cheers

I don't think that it is. Not everyone is able to pull up and might look like it was intentional or in some case, two aircraft are lining up their shots on each and hit each other. I think it would be hard to prove that it is griefing.

Im not talking about the accidental rams, Im talking about a player who gets into the jet just to ram someone, not once, but several times over and over, death after death. They get the jet as soon as it spawns and instantly ram it into someone and repeats the process. The person that did it to me, was not even firing the main gun, they were just lining up the jet and ramming. And I know for a fact this player is doing it to ram, not on accident.

I think it is despised as a tactic overall, and can piss people off, but it is legitimate....Nobody gets to say how players get to deploy available weapons except in "No Explosive" servers or prohibited weapons in servers where conduct is spelled out by established rules.  It's a slippery slope prohibiting uses of weapons in servers with no rules governing the conduct....If you start enforcing this, then do you also look at roadkilling with vehicles?....A player has the choice to use a weapon system the way they want to even if not to our liking or the way we would use the weapon....a case in point, jihad jeeps to armor, atv roadkills, jetski roadkills, AA against infantry, etc.

 

Cheers

I will say that I have done this multiple times. Why? Because I get pissed at a no-lifer jet guy who does nothing but stay/camp in the jet the whole game and goes 79-10. You best believe that when my plane spawns I am going to try as hard as possible to ram him. I hate those people......

I agree that it is totally a legit tactic. As op said, it may be despised, but it is legit. Essentially, that player is giving up the ability to have air cover in order to destroy an enemy asset...its a trade off.

I don't think it's grieving at all, I'm rammed plenty of jets/helicopters. No on purpose but on accident. If I'm flying my jet at a helicopter and the gunner/passengers see me and hit me, and I automatically lose motor functions in a jet...thus I can't turn or do anything in time. The only option is to ram and both die, rather than bail and make it look like it was on purpose. It's just a mechanic in the game that we can't fix and shouldn't even attempt to admin.

Though it is an incredibley annoying tactic. All's fair in war.  Winning by any means necessary within the legitimate parameters of the game is what it's all about. Ive grit my teeth and cussed out about jet ramming before, and ultimately I've just had to end up accepting it as a reality in the game. So though I will say "All is fair in war.", I don't think that Jet Ramming is by any means an honorable form of combat, lol.

I personally don't like rammers, but I am not saying there is anything wrong with it. Just personal feeling. If you cant get close, and keep getting beat, I can see using ramming as a tactic. I spend alot of time in armor, boats, and anti-air, and I get rammed by C4 roadkillers and air kamikazes all the time.

There is always a point where it becomes excessive.  That is the point where action is to be taken.  If someone is intentionally getting into a jet to ram into someone in the air, it is greifing.  At this point warnings should be given out, and if it persists, then punish and ultimately ban.

There is nothing bad to it whats so ever, for maps that have airstrips and two jets sitting there I say that anyone can place c4 onto the jet and use that to get c4 kills. Not many do it but if you learn you can do it perfectly to jets and helo's as well as tanks and such. Maybe mix it up with both c4 bikes and jets. Keep them guessing. So really, its also a form of trolling.
