      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.

Yuki on Raptr

Recommended Posts

Lets do an F.A.Q. first so I can get that shit out of the way.

 

Q: What is Raptr?

A: It is a social website for gamers by gamers. It is small in terms of members per community but has well over 20 million total members.

 

Q: What is AMD Gaming Evolved App?

A: It is a small app that allows users to record, share and broadcast content from games they are playing.

 

Q: Why should I care?

A: Because you can earn free rewards just by playing your games as you normally would.

 

Q: Rewards?
A: No joke, you can earn things such as Video Cards, discounts at certain online stores, in-game items, and even games. All of which are 100% free. 

 

 

Ok now that I have your attention and you are wondering why I am promoting such an app when our site is to be the social area for ADK, its because of one simple thing, VIDEOS. While I can post link after link after link to all my videos I upload, it is hands down faster to just upload to Raptr from my desktop and have Raptr send it to my YouTube account. I also get views that YouTube would never give me. Take for instance, a video I have uploaded to Raptr via the desktop app has currently at the time of typing this, 9000 views. 

 

That same video on YouTube, which both were uploaded at the exact same time by the Raptr app, has NO views. Im not sure why anyone would want to use YouTube over Raptr if they are just attempting to get views without attempting to earn money. I know sil3ntwarrior has a single video on Raptr that has over 140k views. But that same video has almost nothing on YouTube. 

 

I know I keep ranting on about how many views you get from Raptr and how its better than YouTube for views. So why do I keep going on? Advertising, its simple, you get a few ADK members to keep uploading videos with an intro of ADK in the video and we can now mass advertise with out the struggle of forums or YouTube. My first video I put on Raptr was done on July 21st, that single video which I had not set up correctly nor named it or added a description has 40k views. Thats just one video, if we start to add up all my videos together, we are looking at over half a million total views in less than a single month. You see where this is going?

 

Now I am no way suggesting that we go to Raptr and start blasting out videos and advertising ADK all over it. Thats the last thing I want, honestly I am getting well respected on Raptr both by the Devs and the community. I am currently the top BF4 player on Raptr and I am one of the top posters for BF4 on Raptr. I would hate to destroy my good standing and I would really hate to known as the one guy that turned Raptr from a social gaming platform into a mass advertisement. 

 

So what am I suggesting? Well basicly I am suggesting that we can upload our videos to Raptr. This is to give everyone in ADK a place to go to and check out each others videos and get people outside ADK to see our videos without going to forums and posting it around. Look into Raptr if your wanting a new way to get your videos seen and if you are looking for a great place to see other videos with out the mass advertisements on YouTube.

When you get some free time could you write a guide on being as cool and influential as you?

That's a lot of views. Is this only a amd thing? My new PC I will be building when I return has a nvidia card. (I just skimmed over this post because my phone is being stupid). I could start uploading to this site.

What's interesting is on raptr it's showing all of these views yet these views don't transfer over to youtube.  On top of that you say you have 50 new followers yet on YouTube you only have 7 subscribers.  

 

 

Something doesn't make sense of this all. . .

I think its because the video on the site is embedded as Flash, which I wish I could get more views on my youtube channel. I was looking into monetizing my videos to start gathering some pocket change but because the views don't transfer over that idea went out the window.

 

But ya, my youtube has 7 followers but my Raptr account has currently 153 followers. Which is great, I love seeing that many people wanting to see new videos from me. This also looks good on me for the contest that Raptr is hosting. Its based off AMD GPUS so all you Nvidia users are out of luck. More and more people keep following me and it shows that I am putting out videos that people want to see. Here to hoping that I win either the FangBattleBox or one of 3 R9 270 GPUs.

@[member='Dynasty'] Have you been playing with them a lot? I know there was that streaming thing going on. I wanted to join in with you guys but the times you would play were the same as when I would work & now I'm out if town for 3 weeks. Funny stuff would be a nice change of pace over run-and-gun gameplay.
