Servers Shut Down: 4/16 - Änderungen der Server

  • Hallo zusammen,


    Nach erfolgreichen 3 Jahren ist es nun an der Zeit einige Änderungen durchzuführen. Lange konnten wir Hardline noch qualitativ und stabil gute Server bieten. Wir haben stets versucht durch klare Regeln und feste Einstellungen ein best mögliches Spielerlebnis zu ermöglichen.

    Leider lässt es meine aktuell berufliche Situation nicht mehr zu, die Server so wie sie bisher sind zu betreiben.

    Daher werde ich nun starke Veränderungen durchführen. Es ist noch nichts fest da noch ein Gespräch läuft.

    PB1 68 Slot: Wird wie bisher zumindest noch um 6 Monate verlängert da R4YL zur Finanzierung beigetragen hat.

    PB2 68 Slot: Wird zum 16.04.2018 auslaufen

    PB3 50 Slot: Wird zum 16.04.2018 auslaufen

    PB4 68 Slot: Wird zum 16.04.2018 auslaufen

    PB5 68 Slot: Noch nicht sicher da sich eine Person zum teil an der Finanzierung beteiligt

    LF-PB 34 Slot: Wird zum 16.04.2018 auslaufen

    bf3 1 34 Slot: Wird evtl. noch um 6 Monate verlängert

    bf3 2 48 Slot: Wird zum 16.04.2018 auslaufen


    Die LF Server werden von dieser Umstellung nicht betroffen sein oder nur zum Teil. Hier kann ich aber keine Informationen bekannt geben.

    Da auch die Spenden so gut wie nicht mehr vorhanden sind kann ich leider kein weiteres Geld in die Server investieren.

    Da auch ein Root Server von mir im laufe des Monats abgeschalten wird kann es auf der Webseite, Teamspeak und bei der Administration der Server zu Beeinträchtigungen kommen.

    Sollte noch jemand Interesse haben sich finanziell zu beteiligen stehe ich gerne für Gespräche offen.

    So wie es aber aktuell aussieht wird es langfristig keine Server mehr von uns geben.

    Diese Entscheidung fällt mir definitiv nicht leicht, aber durch Probleme mit einigen Admins, was mir zusätzliche Arbeit und Ärger beschert hat und durch Einstellung des Supportes einiger für uns wichtigen Plugins für den Server, ist die Zeit die ich investieren muss zu hoch.


    Ich möchte mich nochmal bei allen bedanken, die sich hier aktiv um die Betreuung der Server gekümmert haben.


    Viele Grüße

    Hello, everybody,


    After successful 3 years it is now time to make some changes. For a long time we could offer Hardline still qualitatively and stably good servers. We have always tried to provide the best possible gaming experience through clear rules and fixed settings.

    Unfortunately, my current professional situation no longer allows me to run the servers as they are now.

    So I'm going to make some big changes. Nothing's set because there's another conversation going on.

    PB1 68 Slot: Will be extended for at least 6 months as R4YL has contributed to the financing.


    PB2 68 Slot: Will expire on 04/16/2018

    PB3 50 Slot: Will expire on 04/16/2018

    PB4 68 Slot: Will expire on 04/16/2018

    PB5 68 Slot: Not sure yet because one person is partly involved in the financing

    LF-PB 34 Slot: Will expire on 16.04.2018

    bf3 1 34 Slot: May be extended for another 6 months

    bf3 2 48 Slot: Will expire on 16.04.2018



    The LF servers will not be affected by this change or only partially. But I can't give any information here.

    Since the donations are also almost no longer available, I can unfortunately not invest any more money in the servers.

    Since a root server will also be shut down by me during the month, the website, Teamspeak and the administration of the servers may be affected.

    If anyone else is interested to participate financially, I am open for discussions.

    But it looks like there will be no more servers from us in the long run.

    This decision is definitely not easy for me, but due to problems with some admins which gave me additional work and trouble and by discontinuing the support of some important plugins for the server, the time I have to invest is too high.


    I would like to thank everyone who actively took care of the servers here.


    Many greetings

  • Oh man.

    I'm sorry to hear this, but your decision is totally understandable! Thanks for your invest (or whatever is the correct word) in the servers, although no one asked you to do so. Too bad Hardline ended up as a "dead" game, which is a shame, since most of us in the forum had a blast playing it.

    Thanks for your reply. I try to keep Hardline online for you and the other gamers. But unfortunately no longer to this extent

  • Sad to read about it.


    Is the blocklist working in the servers presently somehow extractable? So, whoever may take up providing server (s) in the future, could have data about violators PB servers have gathered over the years? There's like 7k + people banned, last I checked.

    I don't think anybody's gonna care. I have contacted EA several times with some problems. I have never received feedback

  • Schade, dass das Spiel bald so richtig tot ist. BFH war mein erstes und einziges BF Spiel. Es kamen sehr viele Server, die aber genauso schnell wieder verschwunden sind. Danke dir, dass du uns allen neben deinem privaten Stress die ganze Zeit über die Möglichkeit geboten hast, BFH in einer hackerfreien und geregelten Umgebung zu spielen. Ich werde mich mal im Clan umhören, ob wir nicht zumindest einen der Server noch etwas länger am Leben erhalten können.

  • PB #1: Conquest - mix maps

    PB #2: TDM

    PB #3: Hotwire

    PB #4: Conquest - Downtown only

    PB #5: Conquest - Dustbowl only

    LF-PB 34 Slot - DLC Bounty Hunter


    bf3 1 34 Slot: May be extended for another 6 months

    bf3 2 48 Slot: Will expire on 16.04.2018


    My suggestion:

    Keep #1. #2. and #3.

    Combine #4 and #5 assuming the person is still helping you fiance it. If the person is gone, you should close both of them because people can just go to PB #1 and vote for the maps they want to play.

    Close BF3 #1 and #2 servers. There are many other German servers for Europeans BF3 players to play on.

    Close LF-PB 34 Slot - DLC Bounty Hunter because it is not very populated. It mostly averages 10-12 people in the server including the server startup people. With actual people playing, it's 3 vs 3 and at most 4 vs. 4. Most people do not have all the DLCs, so they get kicked out when they do not have a DLC for the map then it becomes 2 vs. 1.


    I can help you finance PB #2 TDM. It's like 0.60€ x 64 player slots = 38.4 €/month = $46.98/month so about $50 USD per month for me. Do they charge fixed conversion rate?

  • The proposal of CampToKill is most adequate. It's sad that it all happens with one of the best shooters of our time. Whatever happened, I'm grateful to the admins for all the efforts to provide the best possible gaming experience for the players. If you were not, we would have to play on official servers with cheaters, glitchers, campers on the roofs and spammers in the chat

    As I understand bunch of players mostly active in #3 are discussing providing the funding for it.


    BF3 #1 is one server I've seen Antitoxis himself playing (he is usually just idling in BFH servers to get them going). It might be his own preference to keep it going.

    In that case, I would suggest to close one of them because it does not make sense to have two BF3 Noshahr Canals TDM servers: BF3 #2: 16 players and the other is BF3 #1: 32 players. The BF3 #2 16 players says "best TDM maps," but there is only one map. They are both Noshahr Canals only.

    Noshahr Canals is probably configured as default map for #2 because it's by far the most popular BF3 TDM map. Few times I went there I was attracted by Kharg Island map currently running there. It also ran Firestorm. Could be, another map is decided by players vote, when the vote fails, it loads Noshahr by default. Can't really remember - ran BF3 last time in February. It definitely ran other maps as well.


    As I understand from opening post, #2 is destined to be closed anyway.
