BF4 Server Info

Postby Specialist » Wed Oct 16, 2013 3:06 pm

All,

We have two BF4 servers on preorder. Both servers will be up and running when BF4 launches on 10/29/13.

We ordered a 70 slot server which will run conquest and a 36 slot server which will run obliteration/rush. Both servers will be located in Chicago, Il.

    70 slot = 64 max players + 2 commanders + 4 spectators

    36 slot = 32 max players + 2 commanders + 2 spectators

I'll update this post with detailed server information as soon as it's available.

Woohoo! Although I was curious why the larger server counts the commanders and spectators in its count but the 32 does not. Does this mean the 32 is really 28 active players, or is it really 36 including commanders and spectators? Will admins have the ability to kick a spectator, for example, if an admin would want to shadow a suspected hacker but there were no spectator slots open?

Do you think the 64 player server will fill up?

I've always felt that some of the best rounds are on a full server. True definition of Battlefield.

If the rest of the maps are anything like Seige of Shanghai, absolutely. That map feels empty with less than 60.

We have a ping limit plugin but it's currently off. We can set it to kick when someone reaches a certain ping threshold. We can add certain players to the plugin exception list so let me know what your Battlelog name is and I'll add you to the exception list for the ping limiter.

I believe Beaver is right on all accounts. Premium usually gets a 2-week early access to new expansions. Now AFAIK, this newest map pack called Second Assault is not free like the first DLC, China Rising, was. Buying the map packs individually costs $10 more than buying premium and getting everything as a bundle.

And yes, the four maps in this recent update are new looks on Operation Metro, Caspian Boarder, Gulf of Oman, and Operation Firestorm

Still a little unclear on this :( . So, will these new maps be available to all in a couple of weeks, or do I need to send EA more money in order to gain access to them?

Like I said, I don't think Second Assault will become free after this 2-week period ends. China Rising did/was.

Bingo. There are 5 total DLC's. The first DLC was given out for free to all players as a sort of olive branch for all the game's launch shortcomings. The other 4 DLC packs, including Second Assault, must be bought either individually for $15/each or as a part of Premium for $50 for all 4 DLC's along with the other Premium perks (although there are deals out there to be had that offer Premium for less than $50).

If you don't have Premium or buy the Second Assault DLC separately, you will never be able to play the new Second Assault maps.
