Man, one problem after another for EA's botched relase of Bad Company. Are other servers having problems keeping people in game? I can't tell you how many people have attempted to join our server, only to exit quickly. I also have had the same problem. I was under the impression that Dice/EA put out a fix for this, but it doesn't seem to have helped.
These NFO servers are so nice, it's a shame that I can't seem to enjoy them thanks to this mess. Anyone have any tricks/tips that have worked? Is punkbuster creating problems?
So very frustrated...I just don't think this game should have been released. I have been gaming now for almost 20 years and this rivals some of the worst experiences I have bad.
We are still having these issues daily we know its not anything on NFO end . Yesterday we had 3 dumps of 32 players in less than a 24 hour period is anyone else still getting this frequency in player dumps? daily? I beleive i have pestered the support department enough and maybe someone has some advice here
ive heard that changing the map rotation can help too/?
any help would be greatly appreciated
I feel your pain my friend, I really do. We have been having player dumps randomly over the last week. It was the worst yesterday with the PB debacle. Fortunately, the guys at NFO and other friendly admins that are hosted by NFO have walked me through the fire. Did you manually update PB (if you are running a ranked server) then restart the server? That is what fixed my problem.
What game type are you running? Are the maps for your gametypes the right ones and in your folder? I had that problem early on. I changed the game mode and forgot to add the correct maps for that game mode....smart, I know.
Although not adept yet, I am working on it.
I am running: Regular mode, conquest currently.
