Offcorse real players is the best . But if there is no real players ? . If u play Arcade u will  at 2 of 3 times  get linked to a server with bots

the more real players that gets alocated to the server the bots will stand off   FillEmptySlotsWithBots=True is to keep server alive in the Arcade system

Real players overide the bots. If a real player leave server a bot will take its place

I get the bot and player thing but i am pretty sure you can't rank on your own server whether it's set to Arcade or anything else.

So then i dont get the point to put u server in Arcade mode ?      What does that funkton do then if it not  put u server in the Arcade network

my opinion is that u server will be in the Arcade network  and only way to rank is to go thrue arcade u never know witch server u will be alocated to

and yes u cant rank on u own server if u not get connected to it thrue arcade system. witch is highly unlikely

I realy appreciate this discussion because there is no manual to how to run u server u have to do u own conclusions. and am in no ways saying that mine are correct   :D

From the wiki :

Use 'Arcade' for arcade game modes and 'Unranked' for Wartide. 

Arcade = if your server run game modes : TDM- CTF -DOM.
Unranked = if you run only Wartide mode.

Nothing more. Both system are UNRANKED (arcade and unranked)

I doubt our servers are part of official Arcade servers because we are able to change settings (timelimit, gamescore ...). I m not a specialist but i don't know how they could use our servers for official ranking system if we set our own rules.

.... and if they are using our server for official arcade servers, there would have been less issues with connexions at EA launch ! ???

Arcade    TDM  CTF DOM    in ranked arcade system those gametypes shoild  rotate. How come that i several occations  got connected to server that  have rotation CTF  DOM  CTF  no tdm

even  got connected to servers running  TDM CTF TDM I find it odd  that bulkhead run Dedi servers with removed gametypes..If u get connected to a sever u should at least stay there thrue a game cycle  (TDM CTF DOM)  and not thrown to a new server after every gametype . Thats  one reason i think its players  servers in the Arcade system. But can also be a bug in the game or something i dont know

I was under the impression you couldn't rank up on your own server as was evident when i had 3 servers up. We found it pointless playing on those due to not ranking so battled with the official servers losing connection and the rest of the hassle.

It would have made sense if you could rank on a stock server at least as Soldat Ryan quite rightly pointed out "there would have been less issues with connections at EA launch"

Maybe with full release in 2019 the above could be the case but for now running your own server for other than matches or training etc it is just pointless.

I think in 2019 upon full release, it will better than expected.  The reason I believe so is based on the position BH took regarding what EA really meant to them regarding the development of this game.  It was a true testing and feedback environment because they just didn't have the manpower and tools to do it all themselves, which are the words right from the lead dev's mouth, James Tatum, mentioned at a speaking event early on in Battalion's infancy.  Some have glossed over that as if it weren't true, but it is.  Based on that, I think many will be pleasantly surprised upon full release.

Regarding XP and ranking up on private servers.  I cannot recall any old school shooters that you were ever able to rank up on while playing a private server.  I sure have not played every game or every server out there, but have played many and can't think of one where you were able to rank or get XP.  I could be wrong, but having said that, I think that if the clan wars system BH is talking about implementing is built to be robust and inclusive, It should be feasible to think that you could also rank up and get XP on private servers if those systems are built to work together in any fashion.  It seems like they could be and It would be a new and welcomed twist if that were the case.  We will see I guess..

On COD4 you are able to rank up on all server, except if the server is modded. 😉

Yes CoD4 and CoD WaW if memory serves me correctly but the only thing that ruined being able to host your own ranked server were the guys who managed to run fast ranked servers which was a thing with CoD WaW.

If you were able to host a ranked server with Battalion i feel this would help pick the game up, for example players from everywhere and anywhere in the world could join a local ranked server and not have to rely on BH hosting any.

@Excel 

Ranked local host could boost up the cheating issue imo.

But we get cheats in any online game but the difference would be it would give the server admins a free hand to kick and ban cheats rather than having to tolerate them until you leave the server only to be able to report that player through some ineffective reporting tool.

Problem with cheaters are, they will always be around, it's how they are dealt with that matters.
