Question about Expansion packs

Post by purebattlefield » Fri Dec 14, 2012 7:13 pm

We currently are running a map list that includes Armored Kill and Aftermath in the rotation. At low populations we run just Vanilla maps that are included in the base game. We have had reports of people being unable to join when the Vanilla rotation was active. We have also had reports that People with Armored Kill were unable to join while an Armored kill map was playing in the Full map rotation.

Shouldn't anyone be able to join while the Vanilla rotation is active? Also, should they be able to join during the Full map rotation as long as they have the map that is currently active, or do they need to have the expansions for all the maps in the rotation?

Thanks,

If I remember correctly if the server has DLC in the map rotation a player must have all of the DLC to be able to join it, even if it is running stock maps.

Thanks,

So I assume that if we are running with just Stock Vanilla maps in the rotation, then anyone with Battlefield 3 should be able to join.

Vanderburg, that is not correct. Our map cycler puts example maps in so that the browser will work correctly.

purebattlefield, yes, that should normally be the case.
