  • I'm too lazy....

    to search for the information so I'll waste other people's time. I've started to play a bit again on the 48(?) server. Does the server rotate between Hardcore and non? It seems to me it does or I might be wrong. I don't play Hardcore and would like to jump in on dates or times when it's not turned on.

    It was non hardcore because of some server issue the other day.

      It does run HC now all the time though, I actually like it more when engaging infantry, vehicles.......not so much

          Hardcore was the "best" settings or something silly, I dunno I liked my third person view in a tank.

          Imagine hiding from me in a tank with 3d spotting?

            Only if you imagine me using an RPG or SMAW to ambush you when I can track your movements through a wall and then adjust my aim based on a little orange tank icon. It works both ways. The other way infantry works there is that we can actually take some indirect tank HE shells without dying immediately. So running away from tanks after firing might actually work.

            I see the benefits of HC, but it is all the wacky lack of balance from DICE when it comes to game mechanisms that makes it fail. Hardcore is just a massive nerf to infantry with few downsides for vehicles other than a lack of third person camera and lack of vehicle autoregen. I rarely see anything other than air vehicles use autoregen anyway, so the downsides are pretty slight. (Think of it this way, if I am going anti-tank as infantry I require another player to bring me health, if I am going anti-anything as a tank...I can restore my own tank's health).

            HC solves the problem of messy hit reg making the damage model seem poor...but the game clearly wasn't designed around it mechanically so it is a partial solution forced by the difficulty populating custom servers.

              Its much easier to kill people and stay alive as a tank in vanilla then it is in hardcore and with the 3d spotting, if you can see someone chances are that they see you too.


              Then there is the whole, the game is balanced for non-hardcore issue.

                Tanks in hardcore are scary and harder to kill.

                Noted: move on.

                  I agree with the Scary and hard to kill, just not in hardcore :3

                  But yes lets move on, tank vs infantry discussion come up way to much on the TG forums

                    I prefer HC for one reason... Imagine me in a jet or helo with 3d spotting... Nuff said lol. Either way though there is something broken...

                    Nothin we can do about it besides complain... or kill eachother, i prefer the later of the 2 ;D

                      Welcome back to the server FatKid. In answer to your question; we run a 48 players HC server with default HC settings for server #2, our main server. Fallen has also setup an "Ultimate Map Manager" that adjusts the map size to the current number of players on server, as the population changes up and down over the course of the evening. On the occasion in which there is a problem with the Manager, or an announced setting change such as for a password night, you may find things not as expected, but it's rare. You can find updated information about the servers and other relevant information at this link. Current server setup, etc.
