Hello Shark

Thanks alot for the informaiton and cheers for the work done smiling

Yea I guess you are right Randomizing is better left off specially on wake plus after I read what you said, most of the people in there know each other and want to play together on the same team, specially when you have different clans who want to be on the same side for 4 - 5 rounds of playing.

Also, great job on the servers and maps change, will see how it turns out.

Cheers.

B29az says :- i think after airfield is lost then after u kill the jet and chopper it wont spawn anymore for the US side, i think thats fair otherwise its just rape and people leave..

So true, rape = people leaving.

So you're addressing a mechanics of the game aren't you?

I'm not yet an expert on these but basically you stated that if USMC captures Airfield, and you take down China's remaining J-10's and Z10, no Jet nor Attack Helo will spawn at Airfield for the USMC to use?

I believe one F-18 will spawn and that's all. I am not aware if the F-35 spawns on the Carrier will behave differently, when either Airfield is capped or the F-18 spawns.

But yeah, most of our Players enjoy the Wake Server because it is protected from base raping. Also, the new "Oman & Dalian" Server seems to have been accepted well.

1. Regarding the Website/Forum, what is the platform that is being used? Do you guys host your own or you rent a server and domain? Reason I am asking is because I build websites and deal with many server providers, so my questions is just in case I can give a cookie recommendation if it finds it self helpful and also I am just curious.
We don't really release too much detail on this stuff in public but happy to discuss more in private if you are interested. The Domain is ours purchased/leased for 2 years. The site is on rented web-hosting, yes. If anyone has a recommendation regarding the website i'm always keen to hear it, it's a long term WIP.

2. Regarding Ventrillo, I have noticed that Ventrillo server is 99% of the time empty since your Server VoIP works perfect, my recommendation here is to dump it or upgrade to Team speak, team speak attracts more people and most of gamers have it installed by default, nothing against Ventrillo, but Team Speak is more professional lets say tongue
It's been a bit quiet lately but various people do connect at different times, sometimes when our European Soldiers are fast asleep as well. I don't really agree that Team Speak is more professional to be honest but i believe others have already answered this. I left it in the hands of: Italy S_h_a_r_k_93 & Netherlands Rico946 to start a community vote if they felt the discussion warranted it.

3. BF2 Server Wake Island, I have been on the server many times, my recommendations is as follow:
- When the map ends, please switch teams randomly, there has been hours yesterday when the teams were just stacked, and it was going on and on for rounds
- The rule regarding kicking for attacking grounded vehicles should be removed, since it confuses people in general, I believe that we can attack grounded plans and choppers, a couple of scenarios yesterday for example, the attack chopper of china had a single player in it and he was flying a bit and switching to tv then landing, it confuses the f35s whether to shoot or not and even the cobra, just a recommendation.
Thanks for your recommendations but Wake is our longest running and all-time most popular server, the settings have already been tweaked and tweaked rigorously over a long-period of time by myself and the majority of people here are happy with them. The Attacking Grounded Aircraft with Jets rule which you are referring to is unique to our server and most people love it.

4. Gulf And Dalian Server, what do you say if you just combine both servers and make them one, or in fact just make a server and call it Air Maps, and another server INF only which you already have? Reason I am saying this is to lower the cost per month, and mainly we have the most player I believe in Wake.
Not a bad suggestion but the Oman server is intended to be Oman only and will stay that way, I've set Dalian as the first map in the rotation as a compromise, we could set it to 2 rounds of Dalian as well potentially. Until recently we had a Dalian only server as Italy S_h_a_r_k_93 mentioned but it wasn't overly successful so it's been switched to the vehicle rotation.

5. Special Forces, I saw some people saying to add more players, the only issue with adding more players is the map size, in general, SF has less players nowadays playing it, so to have a 32 player map with 5 players in it is just boring, is it possible to maintain the 16 player map size and increase the player count to 32?
SF certainly has less players nowadays but it seems our SF Server is growing more popular by the day and is quite often full now. A full Server is the right time to increase the Max Players as far as i'm concerned but the Special Forces server is Italy S_h_a_r_k_93 's baby, like Wake is mine so it's up to him.

They are referring to a script Weekend Warriors wrote where after Airfield was lost (+3 other flags if i remember correctly) and if the Chinese team were losing by a certain amount of tickets, the USMC Attack-Aircraft on the carrier would not re-spawn after the Chinese team managed to destroy them and until they managed to re-cap airfield. This may not be exactly correct, i'm struggling to remember now but it's close to how it functioned, i may have some details slightly off and can't be arsed to look it up. Instead of the Cobra & F-35Bs Jeeps would spawn in their place.

I have asked Viper from Weekend Warriors multiple times if they would be willing to share/sell some of their unique scripts but they have no desire to help us, shame to let some great scripts die when they no longer run a server anyway but it's their property so i have to respect that and suppose we'll have to go back to working on more of our own.
