News Downgrading Website Functionality23rd Feb 2019 · 0 Likes · Like
Since we started using DISCORD, the website usage has drastically dropped, which was anticipated. Currently just about everything is done through our DISCORD, so there isn't really any reason to maintain the website. The chatbox and forums are still viewable, but have been disabled (hint: use the discord # channels to type). In the near future, we'll pretty much disable everything and ensure there is a channel/bot available in DISCORD.
We're not going anywhere or taking down servers, just going to limit our interactions to DISCORD. I know there is interest in Battlefield 5 servers if they ever come out with a rental server program, so we'll be doing that. We also continue to have people play PUBG and Rust.
For those of you who have some weird aversion to discord, it's free and you can use #pub to chat if you don't want to join a voice channel. And here is our discord invite link: https://discordapp.com/invite/74zYWMm
Servers and Long Queues
I'm sure you've noticed lately that Server is constantly displaying a 20-person queue. Then you click that "Join" button and you joined the server and you feel like your whole life is a lie because there are only 3 people in there and they all have 100+ ping. How rude! Well, we truly are sorry you are experiecing this.
As many of you know, we have never used "fake slots" in our server. This is really prevalent in BF1 and some BF4 servers. Some people are not as popular as we are so they pretend to have a higher player number than they really do with the objective of getting people to join the server and populate it. What we do is called seeding and all we have is a few AFK accounts in the server.
However, lately, we have been targeted by players that have been banned by BF4DB. They used to only do it to EU servers but they found that the NA servers are ripe with players and why not ruin other people's experience?! Fucking dicks, I know.
What can we do about it as a community? Not much, the bots never fully join the server so we can't ban them. They just "reserve the slot" and not enough information is exchanged for us to ban the account. On the brightside, you can still join the server since the queue isn't really 20 and after a few tries you'll get right through!
I've been trying to get people to start using BetterBattlelog, a community drive Battlelog plugin which let's you customize how your Battlelog looks. Aside from the customization options, it lets you see the TRUE PLAYER COUNT in the server. How? Easy, follow this link and read the instructions about how to set it up. If you have any questions message me on here or Discord and I will do my best to walk you through it
This is what it will look like! Also make sure you are using Battlelog and not the in-game UI!
TL;DR: Cheaters get rekt, cheaters stomp feet like a toddler and finds a way to fill up the queue without actually filling it up.
So, we know that some of you have not made the dreaded switch to Discord for two of the following reasons:
- Discord doesn't move you automatically based on what team you are on
- No perks if you join the voice channel on Discord.
Well, the first one remains true. BUT the second one has just changed!
Starting yesterday 05/21/18 if you are in any of the Battlefield Voice Channels (Battlefield 4, BF4 1: ALL MAPS, BF4 10: Mixed Mode) you will get the following perks:
- VIP Kick Whitelist: No more getting kicked because you don't want to throw money our way, we get it you don't like us enough. However, there is one small thing if your Discord name does not match your in-game name the perks are not going to apply to you.
- Auto-Balance Whitelist: No more getting moved to the other team and trying to coordinate with your buddy which one of you has to switch and timing the switch right as another player leaves.
- Ping Whitelist: *drumroll please* the least favorite perk, but if you join any of our Discord voice channels no matter how shitty your 3rd world ping is (SuperHansSolo) you will NOT get kicked. Isn't that exciting?
A little more information on why Discord will not work with Procon. I reached out to the AdKats Developer and he said that because Procon was built on .NET 3.5 which doesn't have web sockets because of this the info would have to get pulled via the Discord widget URL which has a refresh rate of 5 minutes only.
Sad News About One of Our Own
We all know someone who has been diagnosed or lost the battle with cancer. We have received some really sad news that the wife of one of our most active members in Server 10 has been diagnosed with cancer.
The member has agreed to let us post the GoFundMe Page for anyone to donate whatever they want. This is not a requirement nor should anyone feel obligated to do so. However, if you want to help a family overcome this ugly monster I'm sure every little cent counts.
The GoFundMe Page can be found here.
Transitioning to Discord31st Mar 2018 · 1 Likes · Like
We had no intention of renewing TeamSpeak 3 again after the next expiration came up. It was the plan to transition to Discord however, recently discovered that it seems people were more ready to transition to Discord than I had thought. So, JERiv has gone ahead and put one up. It's a work in progress, but feel free to utilize it instead of TeamSpeak. Of course, that means that we lose sync for BF4 however, it sounds as if Discord plans to bring in sub channels giving hope that it may be possible in the future!
