We kind of need admins more than ever now. Servers should take experienced veterans and community members who are trustworthy and enroll them in a volunteer admin program for servers that don't have enough dedicated admins.

Admins and experienced players need to control the flow of the game; guide the newbies and report bad behavior.. make sure there are no "FREE KITS" squads or players without microphones.

Sadly, it seems like many of the servers that saw a sudden increase in popularity aren't managed well at all, especially the American ones.

Stop making these shitty useless threads. Holy shit.
Play the game, teach people and have fun.
If you don't have fun, leave. I'm sick of people bitching about all the new players. Be happy, ffs.
If one server has no admins and it's shit, join another server.

Not everything can be lollipops and rainbows all the time, so is life. Deal with it and make the best of it.

Everyone who has played the game for a while knows when to find another server, problem is when newbies who join a random one and get treated with a less than optimal PR experience.

Of course we want a bigger playerbase, but funneling newbies in to the right channels is trickier because they don't know how the game is "supposed to be played" in the first place.

Exactly. It's about showing new players what PR is actually about. That's why I feel like some of these new servers are actually doing more harm than good by painting a very negative image of PR. The fact of the matter is: PR is one of those games where good administration is essential to the gameplay experience. I think a large part of the slight decline in player numbers since 1.3 release can definitely be attributed to bad server experiences.

But it's not too late to turn the wheel around. I think the devs should enforce the server quality standards more strictly. Maybe it would be a good idea to create a thread where you can report bad experiences on servers. If enough people report a server, the devs or other trusted members of this board could then play a few rounds on the servers in question to see if the complaints have any merit to them. Repeat offenders could even be threatened with losing their server files license. This would definitely encourage server owners to work on better administration.

But on topic, I just joined a server (Not gonna list name of server... first time in 1.3) and literally... this guy was blowing up all of the choppers for zero reason. I decided to leave since I wasn't in the mood to put up with that behavior. I'll try to get online later probably and see if it's any better. If not, I'll wait another week or two and try. (Since usually that is when the people trying it out and destroying your team vehicles tend to leave).

The patch (1.3.1) added admin commands that take player ID instead of name and fixes being unable to ban players because since 1.3 admins are only able to temp-ban players.

For all this talk of old and experienced gamers I have seen very few people actually step up to the plate and lead effectively.

Just have to be on at the right times I guess. I've seen a lot of old timers leading multiple squads. Just the other day I saw dbzao, Portable.Cougar, and Spriggan leading a 3 squad platoon very effectively.

I myself have had a few great rounds leading some of the new players. As long as they have a mic and are willing to learn the game, they usually do pretty well.

I forgot what roles you filled, but you all listened and followed orders and directions very well. I think 2 or 3 of you were fairly new to PR which didn't stop us from being the top squad! The 40 person assault on the air tower on Saaremaa was amazing! Great use of the grappling hook JekisCool! And a big thanks to sciddles and Leaded for being the medics. I hope to run into you guys again soon!
