    We now have a BF3 server online running 64 player Conquest with ALL maps including the DLC. Server is located in New York datacenter for best pings for USA and EU. It is as centrally located as I can get with a great pipe to the EU.

    I am setting up the admins with Procon and should have that done later today. TKC members that wish to have admin rights on the server need to let me know so I can get them setup.

    There are 3 new servers now. They are much like the BC2 nexus servers. In the BF3 forum section TacTicToe posted links to set up your BF3 game folder. Espacially the launcher he linked is recommended. Hope to see you in game soon.

    Yes but I doubt it will ever get populated or even be there in a month. These 3 new servers run just as good as official servers and have a much bigger chance of people actually playing on them.

    The problem is the way EA does the match making and run BF3, BF4 and Hardline servers. BF3 is the least constrained and is still difficult to populate. Since the game is older people have their favorites to play on. So now you need to rely more on match making, if people are still going that route. Take a minimum 8 players just to start a round. Server has been online for 2 weeks and has only had 60 people connect in that time. Which means for 2 weeks we have not had enough connect for a full server. Run into this same issue every time I put up a BF3 server, getting enough players there to start is a bitch. First 10 days I ran it is a Conquest64 server, which is the most popular gamemode. I then went to Rush, TDM, TDM/Rush mix, and server still has not seen a single round. I have even had it set to adjust the player slots according to how it fills and still nothing. Its just a tough nut to crack. 24/7 Metro Conquest is pretty popular, but there are already so many established servers out there.

    BF4/Hardline I dont even consider because of the extremely restrictive guidelines from EA to host a server. You get a majority of the players from match making,. In order to get players for match making you need to run it as an official server. As an official server you are not allowed to have ANY rules or restrictions. You are not allowed to have reserved slots, you can not kick or ban ANYONE for ANYTHING. Basically you are paying to host a server for EA with your name on it. Nothing more. It really sucks. Then there are the huge issues with the servers themselves crashing so often once they are filled. Last update created a memory leak for the servers. Im not even sure if it has been addressed yet.

    Yeah my fav's list for BF3, they are always full with waiting room only. And they stay that way. Getting it established is the key. But once it is, its pretty much self sustaining. Good PB streaming support with admins that make it known you cheat or engage in monkey business, out comes ye ole Ban Hammer.

    Also posting it helps alot. But where to post it is the question. Normally really active groups / clans get people playing on servers they frequent. If they don't already have one of their own of course.


    Operation Locker
    Metro
    Wake Island
    Kharg Island
    Noshahr Canals
    Sharqi Peninsula
    Seine Crossing
    Caspian Border

    Operation Firestorm

    Those are about the most popular maps servers run and people play. Karkand sometimes.
