    [WCFS] TheFragShack 24/7 DM <HC Ranked> is Live!

    Looks like the DM server is doing quite well. Not hard at all to get peeps on there. Being that the servers tend to list right next to each other, perhaps some of our DM traffic will carry over to the Conquest server.

    From what I could tell, the Battlefield community seemed a bit skeptical about this game mode, being that Battlefield has traditionally been a team-objective based game. Some frowned on this mode because it was deviating from the core game play of the series. Perhaps this mode is turning out to be more popular than anticipated.

    Perhaps as this game matures more server variables will be available that allows us to control Vehicles. In COD we can control vehicles. Simple command really.

    Played some squad dm again today and it seems like it requires more focus that COD for some reason. Maybe its just the being a new game thing.

    Funny that no clan members needs to be on this server to get it going. Peeps seems to like to for some reason. Been pretty much full all day, even after EA crashed late this morning. Traffic came right back.

    Nawwww. I think its because EA was smart and incorporated a new game mode into the Battlefield series that caters to the COD crowd. That being TDM, which is the most overall popular FPS out there. Most seem to prefer TDM. I imagine more servers will pop onto the scene in the next few weeks.

    Right now only 4 out of 10 maps are available in Squad DM. I imagine that future patches will resolve that, as well as open up more player slots. Ideally I'd like to see at least 20 slots available, 5 per team. Seems like good game play.

    I got up this morning and checked at around 7:00am and the DM server is still full. Its been pretty much full since Dice worked out their connection problems yesterday afternoon. Good to see its gaining popularity. Now we just need to get the Conquest one going. Too bad about yesterday in the mid afternoon, had 16 peeps on it and then the connection problem happened and it emptied the server. Been empty pretty much since.

    Have you been on any servers with automated messaging? My understanding is that its not possible at this time, I could be wrong. They have an option to resolve slots but right now it isn't working properly and sometimes will lock out a player slot not allowing it to be filled. I hear they're going to be fixing this shit with the next patch which I think might be out this week.

    I can direct you guys to a site to download an admin tool, The tool is a bit buggy and you need to make sure that the server is is HC settings, which sometimes it falls out of. I think the BC2Guardian tool is probably the best. Just now learning it.

    What I figured I'd do is wait for them to fix these quirks so that admining it makes more sense and is less hassle. If we get on and want to play and the servers are full, we can try and kick people who have the lowest score so we don't kick someone whose been a loyal visitor for awhile. I'll put up some instructions for this tool shortly.

    Hey Ant, I prefer the Command centre tool over Guardian... Also I have found you can actually ban and kick in it. Just right click the player and the little menu comes up...
