:icon2: If you were unexpectedly kicked while following the server rules, it was likely
because of the "auto-admin script" running on the server. This script automatically
kicks players for three reasons, listed below. Please review these cases before
creating a ban-appeal!
:icon2: If you think you WERE violating the server rules, CLICK HERE to resolve the issue.Note: Un-ban requests in the general forums will be locked!
1. Non-supporting member joins a "full" server (62/64)Two player slots are reserved to allow the script to process joining players. The server is FULL at 62/64 players. When a non-supporting member joins the server when it is full (showing 62/64), they will be "kicked" after fully loading the map. Unfortunately, we cannot edit the following kick message to indicate that the kick was for a supporting member, and not due to your behavior.
When this happens, just re-connect once the server population drops below 62. Also, be aware that the in-game browser doesn't always show the updated player-count.
2. Kicks for not being in a squadOur server requires all players join a squad within 90 seconds. This applies to both supporting members and non-supporting members alike; both will be kicked if they do not join a squad. This kick operates whatever the server population. If you do not join a squad within 30 seconds, you will begin seeing repeating warnings in the top left of the screen:
After being squadless for 90 seconds, you will be auto-kicked from the server with the following notification:
3. Non-supporting member kicked to make room for a Supporting MemberThose who donate to help pay for the servers (Supporting Members) are given priority access over non-Supporting Members. When a SM joins the full server, the auto-admin script kicks the non-Supporting Member who has been playing on the server the longest. One player in & one player out, keeping the server population at 62/64, ready for the next supporting member to join. This is fair, as it gives everyone a chance to play and experience our way of gaming.
Note: If you are tired of being kicked from your favorite server and decide to support the community here with a Supporting Membership subscription, be sure to register your BF2 Player ID with TG to never be kicked for a SM again!
If just need an admin, your best bet is to get on TeamSpeak, and find one in any of the Battlefield subchannels (PR, PoE2, or 2142). If it's early in the day or you can't find one on TS for some reason, please make a post in the Contact an Admin forum. This semi-private forum is monitored by all BFx admins, and your post will get a prompt response. You will only be able to see threads you have started and will not be able to see other player's threads.
