      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.

I think I have found a very interesting effect when playing around with this interpolation setting.

When I was playing with the setting all the way to the left, I noticed the kills were rolling in easier then usually...BUT the game was less forgiving on the mistakes and the enemy and you dying at the same time thing.

When playing with the delay slightly on the firefights were a bit more involved and required more bullets to kill someone. The reason is that the person would die but you would not know it until a second later. In addition when you round a corner and start hailing lead hell and you die you can still get a kill because of that delay of a second or so.

Interesting stuff....WHICH....leads me to believe that this might be part of why some people with interesting pings OR people with good pings seem so laggy. I dont know how many of you know of a "lag switch" (thats what I call it) but it allows the player to induce lag in their favor and kill you while all your efforts get "lagged" away by this artificial lag. Although the problem with this is that proving it is near impossible.

@[member='trousergeese'] - check out Cruz's thread(s?) on the FPS bumps

@grim - I think that lag inducement you mention is another issue entirely and obviously a hack as it would involve interfering with the packet traffic

Why we still allow this ***************** on our forums is beyond me. Edited by AOBLXIX
We don't need multiple people saying things like that.

[color=#ffa500][font=comic sans ms,cursive]I, for one, feel that the better one knows and understands their game (all its settings and eccentricities) the better and more effective they will be. In this way, gaming mimics life. As long as a person confines their tweaking to changing in-game parameters that the developers allow gamers to change, I don't see what the problem is. To me, being able to tweak a game to optimize its performance is another way a player can be rewarded by immersing themselves in the technical details of the game. As was said above, there is no such thing as a standard PC and everyone's system and connectivity parameters are different. The only platform where they are the same is called a console. Thus, the developers give players the capability to tweak and accept the trade-offs (graphics quality, smoothness, etc.) that come with changing those parameters.[/font][/color]

[color=#ffa500][font=comic sans ms,cursive]As long as a person confines their tweaks to in-game settings, it's cool with me.[/font][/color]

[color=#ffa500][font=comic sans ms,cursive]Great article Elegy! I look forward to learning more from you and our other competitive players![/font][/color]

Wow this is quite controversial. well my understanding of an exploit is a feature of any game or any program really, that can be abused to give benefits the player/user who knows of the exploit over another player/user like games being cracked or free anti-virus programs, that the designers and developers didn't intend to implement or accidentally implemented into the game/program and its almost impossible to make a game/program that is exploit free. only game I've seen that is exploit free is hawx 2, people keep trying but nobody can crack that game properly. in games wise that could be for example the ability to go under the map or mortaring inside buildings like I've seen in in metro way too often but not recently maybe they patched it (HOPEFULLY). only thing that differs this from a bug is that the game/program will be able to run even with this exploit, where as a bug would crash the client. Well that's my understanding. as this is in the settings, not that i've found it yet, ELEGY you need to print screen it for me:( or at least say which page of the settings its under, as it is in settings it must have been put there after thought of the implimentation so its not classified as an exploit or a hack or even an advantage over other players because everyone can take advantage of the feature. With all that said neet post :) ALSO I tried using those commands in the console for source but they don't change from their set defaults... any ideas on how to change that?
I thought I posted something before, maybe it didn't submit properly... I was having major computer problems caused by the windows booting systems, and a random file in Windows folder called assembly (never seen that folder before, assuming a virus) so I deleted it in safe mode and "bam" all works again. :)

Hello all! After 2 weeks of inactivity thanks to work I finally managed to play yesterday and test out this setting...

First off, @Joey while in game, hit escape, go to options, the second tab on the top I believe says gameplay. It is the last setting, that looks like just a bar, not even a little ball to let you know where the setting is at, just click and drag and you should see it change.

Ok now to the business at hand. I did play with the setting yesterday and I have to say, this is NOT an exploit. There are some people that have the setting to 0 from the get go since their computers are fast machines that can handle the load with no problem. For other people like me, the settings are so low in order to make the game look like it should that certain settings have to be applied (i.e. the network smoothness) in order to achieve the effect. I have ALWAYS complained about how people could see me so fast, before I even knew they were there, or about getting killed after running behind cover, and after bringing the setting down, I can say that the instances of instant death upon going past a corner have gone down significantly. Can some people call that an exploit? Absolutely they can. Will they be right? Absolutely not. Changing a setting parameter that was assigned to you because of lower specs does not mean that you have to suffer the penalty against opponents with better equipment. Now think about this, maybe now you are getting extra kills because you can see them earlier, but, what is to say that they are the same players that could kill you before, and that now you are playing on even grounds and they just suck? The fact that some people think: ohh, you did this, therefore you are cheating because you are better than other people is the worst excuse I have heard, and/or it comes from someone that does not have to worry about it, either because they have it that good so the change in parameters is already applied, or because they are like mac users(yeah I use them too, including iphone, which is why I say this), that are so "anti-establishment" that think that "the man" and all of their "evil ways" are attempting to bring down society so we should not condone it, because we play with a handicap and we are better because of it!

I have to say that I enjoy watching the match videos of the pros, and I loved this topic. I mean, you can ask shonai how our early morning matches went while populating the TDM server. I went from the 5-20 guy in TDM to at some point in the match having about 15-1, and finishing the matches with the best scores of my life. Granted, teamwork does wonders, but seeing how a competitive gamer moves, and trying to understand their thought process helps so much, that coupled with better settings, can really improve your game.

There is 1 little drawback to the setting, the characters glitching when the network is not as fast. It is not as if it is impossible to follow them and shoot them, the problem comes in a low quality system. The map itself is changing so quickly and the game is trying to catch up so nothing looks as smooth. The way that affects the gameplay is that your eyes get tired quick. Your brain also gets strained after processing all the information that comes from putting together jumpy images in your head. Due to that movement and your brain being in limbo as to what you are observing, the chances for motion sickness are incredibly high. Trust me, I know, since after noon all I remember of my day was a headache with intense nausea that did not allow me to go back to gaming lol.

I just saw where article 2 came out, and you bet your ass that I will be paying close attention.
Deuces!

Dang, that just kills my preconceptions. I've always just assumed that the guys that kill me when I turn a corner like they were waiting for me were hacking. Lol.
