Just play official servers is your best bet. That's all I do, I think i've only ever been on one or twi private servers and even then for only a few minutes.

:smileytongue:  

There's some good games to be had on private servers though.  If you like a quiet game for a change try looking at the bottom of the list,  I had a game on Kharg once and just went around capping flags and hardly saw anyone the whole game,  ended up scoring about 9000 just from flags.  

 

In the server browser filter for Conquest / Europe,  then page down right to the bottom,  look at the games with only a few players in,  often its someone waiting to get enough players in to get the server going,  but like I said,  if you've been playing hard and want to slow the pace down a bit you can find some decent games if you scrape the bottom of the private server barrel.  

 

They're less likely to kick you out if the player numbers are low because it could tip below the server threshold and end the game for everyone.  If you get bored easy though just driving around it ain't for you lol.  I love a busy Metro game myself but with quieter games in between sometimes.

Re: Banned from servers

Remember to check the description on the loading screen and then the welcome message, often certain weapons are banned.

That said, I've found even abiding by the little rules you'll be banned from a fair few private servers, presumably because you killed its owner or he wants to free up space.

Mentioned this on Twitter, but it would be nice if there were an obligatory "reason" field when banning someone from a private server - that way, if they put a stupid reason you could assume they're just sore :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Banned from servers

Tbh servers should not have a kick/ban button unless your ping goes super high 

Only time should be allowed to kick/ban is on unranked servers

Servers should also be forced to a set standard can't change it that much.

 

I have found that if you keep getting kicked leave the server and never join it again. Owner should get bored when nobody plays on the server.

I don't understand why people kick for stupid rules only time you should kick is when people park a jeep on the runway.

Re: Banned from servers

If you can't set basic rules and kick people out I don't think anyone would rent a server and the whole scheme would fail,  as opposed to how it is now where DICE/EA are making tons of cash,  probably much more than they do on DLC.  Can't see them changing it mate,  they'll think if you don't like it use the official servers. 

 

The funding raised might help pay for future DLC development so its helping the game,  kind of.  Not being able to set rules is like renting a venue for a real party,  except anyone can come and you aren't even allowed to kick people out of your own party.  Nobody would rent then,  its more like sponsoring a server tbh.
