First off, let us say thank you for playing on our server. We want all players to feel welcome on the VETs Servers.
Please understand that DICE has given us limited control and it is difficult to keep all of our members on the same side. We had hoped that the new Platoons feature would make this better but it has not kept us together. Also, and this is the second biggest problem, the Server Admin controls do not give us the option to move players to the other side!
We have a lot of players trying to get on the same side and the only option DICE has given us is to kick people. This is very short sighted and we can see that it is going to be an issue for players on our server. Look at the picture, we have a large platoon. Our first night playing with the Spring Update and we had a full side! Unfortunately the Platoon feature did not keep is together. We had to kick a lot of people to get our guys on the same side. We realize this is not going to work in the long run.
To make matters worse, we would kick a player to make room, but our Platoon members could not switch. “Teams would become unbalanced”. Yet our side would have five fewer people that the opposite side, WTF?!? Even with our team having a lot less players, our guys could not move over. Then, people in the queue would come right back on our side. Not working DICE!
We are going to do everything we can to keep our guys together without ruining the experience for the rest of the players who like to play on our server. Please be patient.
The VETs official practice nights are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30-10:30 PM EST. If you were kicked during this time it was because we are trying to play together as a platoon. Let’s hope DICE can fix this and at least give us the option to move players like we used to have in Battlefield 4.
