  • [ANNOUNCEMENT] BF3 Server Changes

    Based on feedback and the direction the admin team feels is best for [email protected] we have decided to tweak our servers to the following setups. As always there is still the possibility of further changes/tweaks as we continue to feel out this game and what works best for us.

    Server 1: (big and epic)

    - 64 Player
    - 80% Health
    - no regen
    - Caspian, Kharg, FireStorm, Canals only
    - 200% ticket count = 600 tickets per map
    - Kark pack added for sure when launched since we expect the layouts to not change much and they will be maps fit for 64 players

    Server 2: (just right for a full rotation)

    - 44 Player (one person that was previously left out has someone to talk to now)
    - current settings
    - full map list
    - we may tweak tickets up a bit more at some point
    - possible kark pack added at launch

    Server 3: (small - rush/inf focus)

    - 32 Player
    - 80% Health
    - No Regen
    - All Rush maps - 1 round per map - rush maps back to back so you do attack then defend
    - Smaller infantry CQ maps not on S1 added - Seine, Bazaar, Tehran, Damavand, and yes Metro for now
    - possible kark pack added at launch

    Each server offers something different and we believe desired while retaining the same settings(health/no regen/ff/no killcam/no 3d spot) so the core feel of gameplay does not change across servers.

    Please leave all feedback and constructive criticism in this thread.

      Awesome changes! Glad to see the variety in all 3 servers with the 80% health & no regen, and happy to see the addition of the B2K DLC. Personally, I would still like to see S2 at 48 players allowing for a full squad, but that's me.

          Awwwwright.
          I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

            Two people in a squad seems weird to me but I'm sure that 44 players was chosen for a reason.
            Besides that, all the changes are good.

                  Awesome! Changes make sense across the board. Thank you for mixing in some conquest infantry focused maps on the rush server too. And as much as I didn't like 64p Metro, I actually think the map will play much better with the 32 player cap.

                    One other thought, is it possible to change the map rotation such that you play both sides? Perhaps not for conquest, but I think this would be a nice change for rush.

                      Keep in mind that sometimes squads only fill to 3 people, so you could potentially have 2 or more 3-man squads.

                      3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                          Excellent mix of choices. Before not I only wanted to play on Server 2, but now I believe I'll enjoy any of the three servers.

                            I'm Commander Shepard, and these are my favorite servers on the citadel.

                              Metro is one of the best rush maps, its just people played it so much in the beta, within a month people will rediscover how good it is
