  • Server Branding

    Is it possible to put in the server banner that appears on battlelog the Sniper Limit message? right now, it only says: "TacticalGamer.com - Teamwork, Maturity, VoIP - Active Admins"

    There's a character limit on the server name. The current description uses the available characters to get across what we're about and what we offer, in the little space provided. We have previously discussed this, but I'm sure we can take another look at it, and see if there are any variations we could use to include the above.

      We only get 63 characters to play with - currently using 60.

      Also FYI the sniper script is getting upgrades to be more user friendly going forward in regards to understanding it is running and how it works. You'll get a private yell when you get killed for example.

        Anyway to make the Script kick players after like 5 kills... I've notices snipers care less of the rule. snipe... die. respawn on their beacon and snipe again. Because when the server kills them. it doesn't count as a death on the scoreboard.
        Please Be Warned...

          THIS. As long as there is a warning as well.

            Thanks for the explanation. I just think sniper reduced servers seem to attract more team based players. If it turns out that the players who are not interested on team play all migrate to a server that doesn't care about enforcing rules, they will eventually get all sniper servers, and they will eventually get less and less traffic until they fade into obscurity. I have nothing against snipers, in fact, I prefer to have one in my squad as long as they are fulfilling the full recon role and not just on a corner of a map near a beacon sniping.

                  E_Leader brought up a good point about people just accepting the death as no big deal and spawning back on their beacon. Now that he brought that up I was thinking that the other night it seemed I was getting sniped by a lot more people than I should have from the other team and at one point I wondered to myself about the sniper limit. Anyhow, it seems many of the chief complaints on the server lately are about the sniper limit. I personally don't care because on hard core it can be such a pain with so many snipers. We've been getting a lot of non-TG'ers on the server lately and they complain about that and cussing the most, gets kind of old.

                    I second this. I've played on no-sniper-servers that have a script that kills you once for a sniper kill and if you do it again, you get kicked. I figure if that's possible, I wonder if there's a way to implement that into the existing sniper limit that's already in place. If you snipe without claiming a slot, you get killed/and warned, just like how it is now. Do it again (or 4 more times) and you get auto-kicked.

                      The server description now reads "TacticalGamer.com - Teamwork, Maturity, VoIP, SniperRifle Limit" (as of last night, the 26th). . maybe this will reduce the number of guests who join our server looking for a populated hardcore server to go snipe on.

                        Also, maybe an added benefit will be having more people join who like to do more than just lonewolf (driving more of the right people to our server).
