If you're on facebook, twitter or wherever, tweet your server details so people can check it out.

 

If you're on Battlelog, again post it up on your profile. Also, they have a 'Community Approved Server's thread on their forums where you can add your own:

But yeah I could check it out if I'm on over the weekend. :smileyhappy:

 

Edit, do you have any rules or weapon restrictions?

The ridiculous ticket count might possibly be one reason, although there does seem to be masochists out there who seem to like 500% bore fests but they may already have their fill of the dozens of 500% ticket servers already available.

Try making it 100% tickets, making it clear in the server description that it is, and you're likely to have it full of people who don't want to play 2 hour games.

Agree about 500%. That would put me right off. If you want longer games I wouldn't go over 200%. You might also want to stick Metro in the rotation as well. A rubbish map it may be but it's popular and will draw people in.

I'd drop the 500% down to 200% or 300% Also change the name to something like "Conquest only, 200% - all maps."

 

People will know its a Europe server from the filter, the only thing they want to know after that is what map, modes and the ticket count is so have that in the title and people will join much quicker.

 

Anyway I will be on the server tomorrow to have a game or two if you're on mate. Later.

Follow the trends.  If you're upping the ticket count to maximum then just specialise in one map.  Example,  Bandar Desert Conquest is popular at the moment because of people doing various vehicle unlocks and assignments.  If you put up a Bandar Desert 24/7 200% to 500% tickets it will fill up quickly,  as long as you don't have silly rules and the starting players are only 2 - because people hate to wait.

 

If you're doing Tank Superiority,  then just pick the best two maps,  but don't add extra tickets - think about why people are there - they're picking the server because they want TS ribbons from wins,  and if you add extra tickets it takes too long to earn that win.  Same for rush,  rush with extra tickets is daft and favours the attackers obviously.

 

If you have mixed maps and modes people will play the map they searched for then leave,  because your server won't fulfill their personal objective in the next mode.  I find people have two or three things they want from a game,  and they search for a single map that will achieve it.  So in the Bandar Desert example,  people might be hoping to earn some gunship,  jet or chopper kills - but if that's not possible they might capture some flags with the destroyer to finish their vehicle unlocks, or use the mobile artillery.

 

So in one single map you've catered for a wide audience.

Aggree with all the others . I think the 500% ticket count is putting people off. I always look for 100 - 200% ticket games in europe that have mainly conquest maps with just an odd Rush TDM and T S game thrown in.
Also forget about rules and restrictions . Restricting weapons is a real turn off, Spawn camping on servers should be the only thing that is dissallowed..
