    Ok heres an update on the MOH server lineup... unfortunately if something happens to the backendd at EA server settings need refreshing in ProCon but below is how things will be set out. We split 1 x 24 slot into 2 x 12 slot as this seems to be the game size (6v6) that CG may start ladders at...

    any suggestion re any other server settings i am all ears.....

    =UGN= XGN Bruticus (24 slot standard)
    =UGN= XGN Devastater - No Snipers (12 slot hardcore)
    =UGN= XGN Menasor - (12 slot standard)

    All 3 servers have the same map rotation which is basically every map and gametype supported by that particular map.

    Other servers

    =UGN= BiG #1 (24 slot standard)
    =UGN= BiG #2 (24 slot hardcore)

    I've rented a server for a month with the sole purpose of having one without snipers. :)

    Happy to hand out admin privs to others who want to play it and will kick snipers when I'm not around.

    a lot of the servers are doing so now as the sniping which is leading to camping and that is useless on obj , sector control... it would be good if you could limit the sniper to 1 -2 per team

    I'm just wondering if the "no sniper" servers are still ranked or not. I thought that might not have been allowed by Dice or EA.

    You would only be able to do that on an unranked server. EA do not allow you to restrict weapons or classes on ranked servers. You run the risk of losing your server if caught.

    Yes they will be ranked. Currently I do not think you can actually preclude the choice of the sniper rifle to the player... It is an agreement when you enter the server that you will not choose the sniper rifle hence why someone would need to be present to kick these offenders... Double offenders, snipers and ignorants!

    You can't set a server config to restrict certain classes. By "no sniper" it's based on people respecting the rules, or getting kicked if not. :)

    You might be able to do something with procon scripts, but not at the moment.

    Yes, it is ranked.

    I hate snipers - believe me! They sh1t me to tears when you are the only one moving up to achieve an objective and they sit there grabbing cheap ones!

    But to restrict the use of a kit or weapon/s across the whole map has parallels to knife only servers which restrict the use of all weapons but the knife. When those rules are applied to ranked servers you as a player run the risk of getting your stats wiped by EA.

    EA have enforced that policy in the Battlefield franchise and cant see why they wouldnt in MOH.

    Redgum i think with the knife only servers in BF the certain people who only implemented them did so hence they could stat padding eg.. get the GOLD KNIFE badge their was only one reason any player would go into a knife only server ...

    With the restriction of only this one gun which is happening on more servers now and EA have said themselves the sniper is too powerful it cant be seen as stat padding so wont breach their rules...

    But if you made sniper only then you would be seen as making it easier for snipers to stat pad

    I hear what you are saying and will trawl the EA forums to see if this is covered off by EA in anyway. For the sake of a quick investigation I would rather get a clear indication than loose my stats over it.

    sif the gold knife was hard to get on a normal server:twisted:
