    This was the first time I was banned so I though it might have been something I had done. It was one of my own team mates that was complaining, which I found weird. He/she was writing "yassarikhan786 hack" in the comments and a few minutes later I was kicked.

    That's just poor admining then. Never simply accept the voice of a pubber. Hell, if every claim of "HAX!" was accepted as truth, we'd have to kick Xander every round. The guys insane on foot!

    The inevitable down-side of active admin roles, having to stop, check things out, follow up on claims etc when you would rather be helping your team. Nature of the beast.

    We'll give people the benefit of the doubt and only enforce a kick when it really is needed. Dished out a few well-deserved bans recently as well for poor behaviour as well (repeated spawn raping of attackers whilst telling the admin to "get f***ed" is never a smart move).

    Stupid things like that just make for a poor gaming experience for all involved.

    I've forgotten when I last played Noshahr Canals on foot actually. Every single round I'm on it, I manage to either get the Tunguska or the Little-Bird. The mixture of laser painter and guided missiles on the 'Bird when being an engie usually means I don't go down and I play cautiously with the Tunguska. :) Always good fun though.

    I find the burst fire controls much better, plus my added manual control means I get much more accurate with a steady stream of bullets. Burst fire on LMGs is a waste of time though!

    It might have been something to do with the previous round where I went 15 - 23, due to me trying to C4 everything, which may have cast a doubt on how I was doing much better the next round.

    Do kills count when you are banned? The battle report shows me having 0 points.

    That is not a good enough reasont to kick someone. Sounds like a crap server.

    Reminds me of the russian server where I was kicked for advising people to report a cheat who was playing. I wasn't the one who first noticed the cheat, other players on my team were complaining but I recommended people go and report the cheat.

    I was kicked. Obviously the server was run by crims.

    Probably - And that's the most frustrating situation.
    I had one like that recently playing on a clan's public server where one of the clan-members was one-shotting people with a P90 across the map with his back turned in TDM.

    I didn't comment much on it at first, putting it down to him simply being a lot better than me with PDWs, but then he got an absolutely impossible kill on me and a couple of other players in a very short space of time. They called him out on it, I agreed in the public chat and within seconds I was dropped back to Battlelog.


    On one hand, sure - It's their server, they can act like pricks on it all they want if they're paying the bills - But in this case we have someone who's cheating and being a knob of an admin. How is that good for the wider game, given that the majority of public servers are paid for by private individuals/groups instead of by EA? I'd love to see EA clamp down on both the cheating and the retarded public server rules.

    Sure, individuals or clans pay for their servers and should arguably be allowed to determine their own retarded rules (such as what a friend of mine encountered yesterday: (No ARs/Snipers/Shotguns/Grenades and the server automatically kills you if you use any of them) but they should NOT be designated as a ranked server in Battlelog if they're disallowing weapons or doing other stupid **** like that.

    I'd love to have a Battlelog filter to simply remove servers with idiotic, arbitrary rules that run counter to the core design philosophies of the game.

    I agree with what your saying there, flaming is retarded. Though last night me and another unamed person. Flamed someone on a Pub Server because he camped the whole map and started get annoyed when one of us got a kill on him.

    But hey goes with the idiots that play BF3 at times.

    And regards the Admin kicks, I have had that only once. Playing on a random pubber server and because I will the camping admin who was in the same location everytime. He kicked me from the game. Oh well some people just can't handle the power!

    I think it does on Conquest Small. I've only ever played Noshahr on CLarge though, apparently you get 2 little birds on small!

    Noshahr Canals has the Tunguska, Little Bird and Venom on Rush, that's what we have on our rotation.

    As far as I can remember for Noshahr Canals, in Conquest mode there should be a Little Bird and Z-11W on on the small map and on large there should be AH-1Z Viper, UH-1Y Venom, MI-28 Havoc and SU-358M Flanker-E for air vehicles.

    I just don't get the point in cheating. I guess some of these retards are determined to get the highest score at any cost. Can you imagine what they're like sitting an exam? I guess many wouldn't even sit exams, they'd just apply online for a fake doctor certificate.

    If I am crap at a game I like, I keep playing until I get better at it. That's how it was for me on CSS when I started out. I never aim to be the best either, I leave that to others. It's enough for me just to play as good as I can. I always accept there will be others better than me.

    Maybe we should all compile a list of cheat servers or servers that are known to protect cheats.

    That would be too much effort really.
    There are far too many servers like that and some of them tend to change their name on a regular basis so you could end up with one hell of a long list.

    A different way to go about it would be to compile a list of trusted servers with active admins who enforce fair play but don't push stupid rules that ruin the fun of the game.

    Yo Wyx is there any chance we can mix up the map rotation on the CPC server a little? There's a few maps that we're not playing at all or rarely it seems, eg Tehran, Sharqi. Love all the maps and it's good to throw in a little variety.

    Not strictly flaming, but the only time I've ruffled feathers I got some 'skool' kid saying "I hate you Jester" :D, I loved it, because I'm really not that good. I think I might have killed him several times in a short space of time, whilst capping a flag in a tank, at the "gas station" on Caspian Boarder. A little latter I piled it on, I saw on the mini someone capping forest and sneak over, walk straight up behind the same fella, knife kill and tell them them "you really should turn around more", job done.
