Battlefield 4 / BF4 Server back to Ranked (ADmin functions back)
« on: March 11, 2018, 11:02:16 AM »
After having to watch a couple of people spoiling the server yesterday, I have switched it back to Ranked today and banned them. We'll see how it goes.  may well adopt the strategy of having it Official during the week when it's less busy and Ranked on weekends when we can control it a little better.

I'm not sure. The vanilla maps are all very well (with the exception of Paracel storm which not many people like) it seems to me that the other most popular maps are Propaganda, Pearl Market and Metro. Obviously you have a lot more experience than I do at this sort of thing but I was trying something a little different by selecting certain maps.  As far as I can tell at the moment, it's working OK so I am reluctant to make many changes.

If you think that would help. It hasn't been doing too badly as is.   I'll need to understand which maps are involved and set it up accordingly.

Battlefield 4 / BF4 Server switched back to Official
« on: March 06, 2018, 11:31:14 PM »
As the number of players has dropped off again on the server, and the previous hackers have now been banned, I have changed the server to Official again to pick up some more players.

Did you switch off Commander like you said and it rebooted server for settings to take effect ?
Yes.

I'll give it a week and see what occurs.  maybe switch back to official next weekend if it's not getting filled.

Sunday morning, after having 2 really annoying hackers the previous day, decided to return the server back to Ranked hoping that plenty of people had made it a favourite by now.

Battlefield 4 / Re: BF4 Server getting good numbers as Official

If you change too many things at once, you can never tell which changes had positive/negative effects.

That's very valid, always keep that in mind.
That's Project Manager/Programmer talk...:)

i will say we could do with another map manager when full to give out all the maps as it would make it more interesting if more maps were available, Plus what about chucking in a few rush maps (not many just a few) and let the public vote for them if they do so wish.

Plus we need more people to help start i played about 6 rounds (with about 10 - 16 players) But i had to leave and then there was 6 . But with Slicks patience he managed to keep it alive and finally filled to about 35 players ,, i rejoined and it filled quite quickly.
Moral is we need more players (not just idle numbers) to keep the seeding quick and painless ..
I realise it can be fairly hard to get going sometimes but I'm not sure that adding a few Rush maps would improve the situation.  People who like to play Conquest would probably leave if a Rush map came up, IMO. I want to give the current setup a reasonable time to work as it seems to be generating players. I haven't added in other maps because of the reasons I gave previously.  I don't want to rock the boat at the moment as it seems to be doing much better than it did a couple of weeks ago.

I'm happy to experiment with more maps and other modes once this format has run for a bit and, possibly, we switch back to Ranked for a bit to see what difference it might make.

As far as seeding goes, we can only rely on a few members who are prepared to soldier on (pun intended) when the server is not very populated. I'm not sure who else we can call on.

Battlefield 4 / BF4 Server getting good numbers as Official
« on: February 24, 2018, 11:25:09 PM »
Seeing as the BF4 Server seems to be hitting good numbers at the moment and there doesn't seem to be big problems with cheaters/abusers at the moment, I propose leaving the Server as "Official" until further notice.

Still got a BF4 server at the moment too.  You could always come and vent some frustration shooting people...:)

Battlefield 1 / New Maps but Browser broken
« on: February 20, 2018, 01:47:38 PM »
As far as I can determine there are 5 new Maps on BF1 today.
There's 2 Air Assault ones (no interest to a crap pilot like me) : London Calling and Razor's Edge.
The others are River Somme, Capporetto and Passchendale.
I've played River Somme which is good but similar to another map (which name eludes me at the mo) without the snow.
I've yet to play the other 2.
