PostSubject: Do We need our own Server?   Mon Sep 05, 2011 5:12 am

Hey guys, i been doin some math (amazingly) and i find that im making quite enough money per month to rent out our own server for battlefield Play4Free...
Now just thinking that it is completely nessesary that we all have ur own server and admin powers so we can remove any unhonorable players (Tkers, Trashtalkers, Assholes, all together) to our liking...

Ill be able to fund our server so u old farts dont have to make urselves older by dealing with another task, so before i actually rent the server, jus reply ur opinions about the idea and from there ill choose to rent one out for us

Wow....I gotta say, not a bad idea. It would be nice to set up the map rotation to something that the group likes.

yes it would... i can set us all up with a server at any time, and like i said, we can kick bad players, own map rotation that suits everyone, and of course, be helpful to spreading the clan and gettin more people to want to apply as members

I went ahead and rented out the server through MYinternetservices.com, as it was one of the cheaper and easier to understand (to rent out a server) that i saw....

Server Status as of now is Pending, when its finished ill tell u all more, but for now which maps would u all prefer?
And ill be giving all of u admin powers to the server once its active

A few things...You should have been supplied with a LINK to the server. We need that to be able to bookmark and join it. I have started the client side setup on it. Got the banner running and am getting ready to check out how to get GGC streaming up and running.

Not sure what the hell is going on but now I am unable to even kick people acting like fools. I am able to issue the command and it shows up in the "server admin" message area but the person does not get kicked.

This means that nobody is able to 'police' the server and idiots are running rampant. (As is a person that I suspect was hacking...)
Permenent bans also cannot happen until GGC is streaming.

That is possible. Let me see what I can find out. I'm pretty sure I did try to register it but got stopped because I didnt have the correct access to the server.

I'm not sure why the 'kick' function isnt working though.

Nope...the only servers I have listed in "MY SERVERS" on GGC are the 3 Hotel California servers that I'm an admin on.

(By the way, I'm admin there because that is where I was playing most and is run by one of the guys that I played quite a bit with during the closed beta phase. He asked for a few 'regulars' to help police the server(s) )

Sooooo....not sure what to do now. You try asking someone on the forums on GGC or try sending them Private Message? Usually those folks are pretty helpful.

To clear up problems with GGC request a different IP address for the server by submitting a support ticket at myis. To clear up the kick issue submit a ticket for that with details of the problem I would advise a gameserver reinstall. Myinternetservices is decent host but have you checked out branzone.com?

Well...I no longer will play on the server because it is impossible to remove people who teamkill and generally cause problems. There are no admins if there is no ability to kick people. Warnings do nothing.

Let me know if and when this gets resolved.

If we cant fix it, maybe we can try renting a different server (Branzone?). Is anyone interested in the idea? If so, we can try to figure out the best way to do payments and/or donations.

my opinion is:
thanks again to clown for renting this server
but if we can't admin it, kick asshole, join it = i am not interested
and i will not donate or pay for something like that !
u need to find a better server where all TCP members can have all access (admin, kick, manage, join)

If we do it as a clan (server rental) it will be like it was with Americas Army. All members will be "admins" and have the power to enforce whatever server rules we choose to have. Usually with this game though it only requires removing the idiots that blow up their own teams vehicles and such.
I would get us streaming to the anti-cheat organization GGC-Stream and PBBans to ensure we remain relatively "hack free". The other important aspect of that is that you can use their banlist to permanently ban repeat offenders. Currently there is no other way to do that.

I also appreciate Skippy's getting the server currently running. Its tough to get things going when doing a server setup. That is why it is usually good to have a few different people with access to the server account to manage things when others get busy with real life.

Again...I just throw this out as an idea. I am willing to pitch in some if we think its a good idea. With that in mind I would say that I have seen GREAT responses and feedback from the current server. (except when the fun is ruined by morons...lol)

And i checked out all of the other server providers, but myis was the one that i could understand easiest (if that makes sense), but i like soul's idea lol
Mostly because until im 16 i wont make part-time wage or whatever, and parents fail to pay their children for doing THEIR work... (and its leather work so its difficult >Sad

i am agree with soul
we need the same than we had on AAO
count me IN !!
i can put some money in = someone else ?

i will check server provider to see what we can find better
and YES some people here need to have ALL access to the server (like soul)
it is what i have done when i have rent the TS server = i have sent ALL the access to soul
u can trust on him
but u can't trust on ur parents for paying u lol !!
let this server die
we will find another solution better for all the clan

hahaha alright then frenchie i agree with u haha,,, but i wont let the server die out until we all agree with something... souls idea sounds good, that way we all dont need to rely on just 1 person to pay off the server....

Ok...sounds like I'll start trying to figure out a clan-pay system of some sort. It was easy with Americas Army server providers because they had been established for so long but I'm not sure that something like that exists for this game. I will certainly look around this weekend and see what options are available.

As for the trust thing...I think I can say with certainty that if you arent trustworthy enough with things like server rights then you would not be a member of this clan. Its small because finding truly trustworthy people is not as easy as it should be.
