AirConquest server

Hi, guys.  As I mentioned briefly in another thread the AirConquest server is up and running.  It features large conquest maps with an emphasis on air vehicles.  Flying is optional though - all players are welcome.  The idea behind the server was for random players to earn air XP or allow dedicated practice on jets and choppers for new players.  Especially aircraft such as the F35 which has just been modified in the recent patch.

 

The server is hosted in Europe and has a 3 month lease.  You can find it  by searching "AirConquest" in your server browser within the game.  If you need BF3 flight practice its a great place to start. 

 

The conquest maps currently featured are:

 

Gulf of Oman

Wake Island (5FLAG)

Kharg Island

Caspian Border

Operation Firestorm

Noshahr Canals

 

At the moment tickets are set at 200% because previous games were over in about ten to fifteen minutes,  so hopefully the double tickets will allow approx 30 min games.  If the server is empty it only requires 2 players to start it up so its a great place to meet a friend for a fun game.  The server is ranked and will count towards your stats and career progression.

 

My personal motivation for the server is the 13 remaining hours in helicopters I need for the service medal,  so i'll be in and out of the server from time to time.  The games have been popular so far but the server has suffered from a spawn camping problem. 

 

I've learned that an EA directive Here: https://help.ea.com/article/bf3-rules-of-conduct gives express permission for rented server admins to ban players for repeated instances of spawn camping,  I will enforce it if It continues.  All I ask is that players keep away from enemy home bases,  thats the only server rule.

 

Happy flying :smileyhappy:

It's a shame DICE have never put in place a way of making sure spawn raping can not happen in the first place

I agree completely. The server has been busy all day, i've had several messages about spawn campers and i've kicked about 6 players. Some learn the lesson and rejoin the game immediately, others you never see again. I don't like doing it, and I won't kick anyone unless i'm in the game myself and see the offence committed - but I can't be there 24 hours and while the cat's away etc...

I've made the rule clear, people can see it on the loading screen - 'please keep away from the enemy home base' along with a link to the EA BF3 rules of conduct. The worst map is Noshahr canals conquest - I almost deleted the map today, i'm not sure its worth the trouble.

I'd like to keep it in rotation for people who need little bird XP - but most of the offenders are on that map, the temptation to camp / strafe the carrier base seems irresistible.

:) Thanks. Tickets and settings are all normal now, it did have extra tickets but that idea was scrapped. Damavand peak was added into the rotation, I know its mostly an infantry map but it has a special attraction of 1 tank and 1 little bird chopper per team. I've seen some exceptional pilots on the server and some of them like the opportunity of a one on one duel against the enemy. For the rest of us, its fighting in the tunnels lol.

"Apologies, i've taken the server down. Thanks."

Whys that then, too much agro, or too many spawn campers?

 

Thanks.

I can fit in my jeans ok, just particular anatomical parts can't :p

 

Obviously what has happened is my thighs have increased in size  so when I put them on the denim is being pulled outwards which unfortunately makes it tighter across the crotch :(

 

Off to London tomorrow :( Really can't stand London (no offence Fski et al :() Water tastes *****, can't make a good brew, the people (in central London) are rude,and vain. The tube is full of even more *bleeps", everything costs a sodding fortune, no body speaks a word of English and then when they can they pronounce their words incorrectly, since when has the letter "U" been pronounced as an "A"  /rant

 

Edit: fail to see how it was misleading. Quoted you and  "your"  are clear enough :p

Nothing against cockneys, got quite a bit of family down in Harrow and some out in Hertfordshire (possibly near ratty :D) Just the people in central London who are either forigen tourists or *bleeps* that get angry when they miss a tube train despite the next one being due in 2 mins :Shame:

Thanks Reaps, I still have the server until July so i've time to decide what to do with it. It will probably go back up with a new name and no rules whatsoever, because once you have rules you must enforce them, and I hated that part. I honestly thought if you wrote it on the loading screen and asked nicely - they'd do it. They don't.
