We are tuning this server off at the end of the month. As a clan, we do not have a need for multiple BF4 servers and felt it was a better move for us and the future. Our mission is not to grow at a fast rate, but to sustain and grow steadily over time. We value relationships with one another more and want to put less emphasis on particular game modes and competitiveness. We understand many people loved the server. I hope those of you who preferred Hardcore will consider Classic mode and will continue gaming with us as friends.
DICE has a big update prepped for release in September which includes a lot of the big improvements from the Community Test Environment (CTE). One new feature that is really kind of under the radar is they are finally incorporating a Classic preset to bridge the gap between Normal and Hardcore. In a nutshell this mode promises to deliver an experience closer to 1942 and BF2.
Here are the bullet points for the default Classic settings:
(Settings taken from Hardcore marked in Orange, settings taken from Normal marked in Green)
- FriendlyFire: Off
- RegenerateHealth: Off
- OnlySquadLeaderSpawn: On
- Minimap: On
- Hud: On
- MiniMapSpotting: On
- 3dSpotting: Off
- KillCam: Off
- 3pCam: Off
- NameTags: Off
- HitIndicatorsEnabled: On
- ForceReloadWholeMags: On
The patch is still a month away, but I thought I would see if anyone else was interested in this and explore the possibility of using these settings one one of our servers.
What do you guys think? Too late DICE? Too risky to try this on one of our servers?
(Note about the source: It says in the link that the soldier health setting is 60% but I am told that's a typo and the CTE uses 100% health currently)
