Hey, I noticed that this server seems to dump everyone in the evening sometimes. Idk if this is because of scheduled restarts, it crashing, or whatnot. Does anyone know what is going on?

Schedule restarts are announced in the chat at the end of rounds. No one reads chat so every one gets mad for no reason. Hehehe. But can you give us a time so we can look if it's a crash or a restart?

Also, sometimes the server is just empty(like now for example). It seems some nights it just doesn't recover from dumping everyone. Is there something we can do to mediate this?

yes BT, you can volunteer with server seeding, you get special perks and stuff http://www.migaming.us/ne ... wspost/47992
this is about to change in the near future with battlelog making way for in-game browsing, but we're prepared - http://www.migaming.us/ne ... wspost/54410

I just came here to the forums because the header of the server I'm always on says " See Forums" and no one is playing.

Can anyone confirm?

Server needs to be seeded. When it reaches a certain number it automatically changes to "Volunteers Needed" and once the population goes up it changes to its regular name.

If you want to become a seeder, first you must apply to become a member and then apply to be a seeder.

Is there any way to put a ping cap on this server?

SO is server balancing something we have control over? This server gets lop-sided really quick on most maps and although I don't mind most of the time (normally I try to vote infantry heavy maps and it helps even things out), it seems like it always wants to lump all the 140s on one team.

Here are screen shots from a game I just left. The first one is very early on in the game, and the second is the end. This happens regularly. 

A lot of people have been complaining lately, so I figured I'd bring it up. But if there's nothing we can do, I'll try my best to explain it to people on here. Thanks for any help.

People often confuse balance and stacking. Balance essentially means that there is equal weight right? For BF4 and plugins, that just simple means even sides in terms of the number of players. Stacking is when to many good players end up on one side. What we found when we used to run the unstacker, is that if you did in slow motion, people would get moved way to late in the game and at a rate of 80% or more, leave.... If we do it quickly, people get killed out of no where in the middle of a good run or something, then moved, then leave the server as well at an even higher rate. So, it's not fun for the people being moved and nor the people taking the beating however, having it try to fix the problem at the end of the round seems to help keep the servers populated and actually led to far fewer complainers. Typically the stacked teams are fixed after a round or two (not always as there are a lot of factors that come into play that make it not always work great).

Understood. There seems to be a massive influx of new players on this server that I've been seeing and I just don't want them to quit the servers or game because they think nothing is being done. Thanks for taking the time to reply!

Due to a lack of donations and interest (judging by population). Server no. 8 has been shut down.

Hi, is there a reason why I keep on getting kicked from this server without any explanation? My ping is below 250 always (around 210 - 220). It has started to kick me ever since I went 14-2 in Pearl Market with the FAMAS. I stopped using the FAMAS but I am kicked without even playing that long now (once I get noticed)...I try die more than usual but I still get kicked.

I am also happy to make a donation if it means I do not get kicked if my ping/follow the rules is in order.

Thanks.

Is there anyone I can contact via email of some sorts?

Server 8 is shut down. Are you sure this is the server you're having issues in?
