None taken,

we may consider this as a test run; plus now we have a CQC profile if need be, that we can swap to with no effort. :'D

I appreciate your extremely professional attitude about this.

I'm also very keen not to 'shit-all-over' your ideas or our other members, i realise you spent time making these changes and the changes were made with good intentions of course. So let's discuss anything yourself or other members feel is particularly important to change from the base settings as a priority (aside from Map Size & Player Count).

I'm interested to hear how the performance was over recent weeks following the change of settings/configurations across our servers as well?

I have played a couple of times on the Inf server now.
The only suggestion I have is to remove the Map "Operation Clean Sweep".
It is no inf map, but an air map and it is hard to play Inf on it. The few players on it are leaving regularly.


Thanks

I think Oman had little bit of a boost, but most of the feedback I've gotten was that the Players preferred the 64 map size and its increased air-space; thus I've reverted it back to that size. The Oman Server is running Dalian as well now, in a 4 rounds rotation, as suggested here.

The vehicle rotation was the last one I've changed; we managed to get a group to start it yesterday and it was quite fun. My favorite maps would be Operation Road Rage and FuShe Pass (great fun there with Galactic|Pegasus!).

@Germany SW03_Carbon I agree, I had a match on it some days ago with just one enemy, and it was boring because even in 16 size that map is really big! Laugh So ditto on your suggestion, I agree. Shall we remove it 5tarLine?

Eventually I've been trying to get the Special Forces Server going by promoting it on battlelog.co as well (where I suggest some of you drop a reply during the weekends, to bump it up again), but in that Server you have to be there to kickstart it; otherwise it's not filling on its own very well.

Other than that, aside from the basic map/player sizes,
I don't feel / don't recall there's anything urgent at the moment.

I played some matches today on the inf server and noticed that the map size is 64. It is way too big for the few players and impractical in general, please reduce it to 16 or at least 32

Sorry, back in the shoutbox I didn't realize you hsd already replied to this topic Carbon. If I recall correctly the last profile was Infantry 16 CQC.

How many Players were you playing with, Carbon?

today we were just 3-4 players, playing and waiting for others to join. Lululu and me, together with Princess Unicorn and my SW mates tried to fill it up the last weeks, but the max amount of players we reached once were 12.

64 player size is way too big, because it's too much running and too few killing. Just imagine Oman size 64, with an uncap carrier, lots of water and a giant desert and an uncap airfield.

In my opinion the 32 player size is optimal for inf only on these classical infantry maps, even with only few players:
- Strike at Karkand
- Sharqi Peninsula
- Mashtuur City
- Great Wall
- Blue Pearl
- Road to Jalalabad
(- Songhua stalemate)
All of these maps are also very good playable in 16 player size.

The air maps
- Gulf of Oman
- Kubra Dam
are only practical in 16 player size imo.

So I suggest we should run all the maps with the 16 player size (probably as long we have only few players regularly) OR in 32 player size, but then without Oman and Kubra Dam.

At this time there will be no more changes to BF2 Servers #2, #3 or #4:
-We need to show consistency with what we are looking to provide, people like to know that they can rely on a server to give them what they want and enjoy. This is the key to developing long-term relationships between server and player.
-It's not that long ago (in terms of the time it takes to grow a successful server) that i made the changes to these servers.
-Our BF2 Servers are intended to support 64-Players and that is how they will remain, this is the player-base we are targeting, those that like to / will only play on large maps.
-I appreciate that low player rounds can be slow on any large map, but with a little perseverance of these seed-players the server popularity will gradually increase and that problem will be overcome.
-Finally, due to the nature of BF2CC and that we are running a program which suffers from critical issues on Windows, on Linux - Swapping between different Profiles & Configurations is not always an easy thing to do. In fact, it took several full installs of BF2CC, Reboots & Repairs to prevent it from overwriting / corrupting files. After finally getting BF2CC back into normal operation i'm not taking any unnecessary risks now because once it starts to play-up i'll be back to square one. Changing the Maplist (required to change Map Size) is one of the biggest causes of issues as well.

To be honest, right now i would appreciate if we could all focus on Wake as much as possible due to new competition here. We will be stepping up our efforts to increase server activity over the next few months, more information on this soon.

If you want to discuss any of the above with me feel free to PM or open a new topic in the Private Forum.

Special Forces is however still being configured and Italy S_h_a_r_k_93 is handling this one.
