XD Private Server Idea?!?

53 Replies 324 Views Created 30-03-2012

I was thinking about getting XD a private server!

 

If i was to do this, would any one here be interested in having access to it?

 

At this moment in time im not too sure if i am going to get one, im just curious if any you friendly peeps would be interested in using it?

I'm sure there would be interest in it. Do you know how customisable the servers are?

For example could a knifes and nades only server be set up

Thanks....

 

Im just thinking things through and discussing how we will split the bill between XD members lol....

 

I was thinking leaving it open for XD and PS Forum users and, obviously locking it for Specific events and matches!

 

But i just dont know right now

 I played on a random server yesterday, it was ''hand guns & knives'' only..Although you could still use machine guns & everything else, so I'm not sure if you can disable things, or is it a case of just adding a ''don't do this in game. If you are reported, I will ban you'' message. It did say ''you will be banned if you don't use only knives & handguns''...

 

I did ''accidentally'' kills someone with a grenade, but I never got kicked...I'll add that it was also the most boring game I've ever played. Your think handguns & knives would be ''fun''..It's after 5 minutes, just boring.

 

I've love a server that rotated every single map, & also rotated either CQ or Rush on every map....DICE can't even do that. I'm suspicious that their ''map roation'' which isn't great, was done on purpose in hope that people would buy their own servers to set up better server set ups.

If it's made private the games are then unranked, for anyone thinking of boosting... Ha
Yesterday I hit a random server and it was 1750 ticket start on conquest metro...
Killlllll Feeeeest :-)
Nearly a full rank up from that one game, granted it lasted just over an hour but - dam that game was fun, from owning to back foot so many times and felt so much more like real war!!
It's that game that's making me think of renting a server I want more.

I'm not sure if high tickets on big conquest maps is a good idea, twice its frozen my PS3. I'm not sure how well the console memory handles large amounts of accumulated damage over extended periods of time from the frostbite 2 engine. Maybe they were just random freezes though. Its worse though if you've invested a high score in a longer game - only to lose everything.

I played a 1000 ticket game last night and it was pretty good, but they should be renamed 'Get kicked if you are better than the admin' Servers :\

Was thinking about enquiring about an OPC server - I asked Vissy if it's something that SCEE would be willing to support and he said it'd have to be proposed to higher ups and that.

The best way to find out would be to see how many people are interested I guess, and go from there: i.e., how it's paid for, settings, rental duration.

I can see loads of players getting kicked because they shoot the host

What mode were you playing cringles? I've done knives and nades on squad rush to try and keep the players together, it was hilarious. Agree about rotation to keep people interested

That is so true tricky-- I joined a rented server and to test out the insta kill will unguided tank shells, " oh there's a chopper" and with my first shot across the map Booooom double kill and the I got kicked-- I said to myself ooops that must of been the host and then I just laughed at the rage kick!
On another server a I had to bail from my jet and "ohh look there's a flag camper so I pulled out my 320 and delt him some death from above [DFA] and then I go kicked!
So yeah it's gonna happen alot, I'll probably kick high lvls if I see them dominating but not for one kill that's to much.

The same thing used to happen in Warhawk.  I don't know if BF3 is set up the same way but if you got kicked from the same server a certain number of times then you got banned.

 

It was quite amusing going back and looking for the host just to get kicked again and finally banned just for the lol's

 

In fact I think they should make a new ribbon for it:)

Well myself randy and ratty all got banned from a rented server today :(. First proper game we went in to :lol: 

 

Saw a post on the battle log by loads of people complaining in it after having their rented servers removed after kicking people. Turns out if you set rules in your server like "pistols and knives only" and enforce them by kicking people out who don't use pistols and knives then you get your server taken off you without warning and no refund given on any remaining days you had paid for.

I've just rented a server for a week to try it out and it turns out they can ban anyone thay want...
You can assign friends to the VIP list witch lets them join private game at will and you can also assign them as admin allowing them control of the settings wilst your offline!
Sofar it seems a nice setup.
Everyone is welcome-- I don't have a ban hammer!!

Hope it works well for you. If I had a server i'd try to set up Squad Deathmatch without vehicles. The SDM medal is one that hardly anyone has because its so difficult. I've always thought the vehicle that spawns at random places unbalanced the round unfairly, because a weak squad can take the win just by being lucky enough to get the vehicle.

Then you have to focus on avoiding the vehicle or destroying it. It would be better without it IMO, and let the best squad win fair & square, guns only.
