Hi PapaCharlie9,

 

first of all huge thanks for this plugin. It did an overall amazing wotk till late this afternoon.

 

All of a sudden it stopped working and I had a 22 to 16 balance on my server which lead to a lot of players leaving, as MB simply did not balance. It actually "saw" the difference of 6 and acknowledged it but didn't do anything. It just sat there saying autobalancing active, for about 10 minutes. Switched back to TrueBalancer for now.

I did notice 3 players with the same tag but that shouldn't stop MB from working, should it?

 

I am using the setting from your MB Settings thread for Conquest Large normal Maps.

 

I wish I could give you an excerpt from my pluginn.log but I can't get it working. Chat, Event and Console logs are fine, just plugin.log wont work. Its always empty.

 

Anyway, have you heard about anything remotely similar to my problem and what could be done against it?

 

Thanks in advance!

How many tickets and how many (max) players?

 

My guess is that your Late Phase is set to Stop,Stop,Stop, so the balancer stopped. If you have a large Late Phase ticket size, larger than it should be, that's what would happen.

 

No need for a plugin log, just post your settings, particularly Section 3 and Section 8 Conquest Large.

Yes, but that won't make sense, as I've tried to explain before. The Whitelist has priority over everything else (except Scrambling). If a player is on the Whitelist, they will never be moved by the plugin.

 

The priority of processing is this:

 

1) Scrambler

2) Whitelist

3) Dispersal

4) Balancing, unstacking and unswitching (normal processing)

 

Because Dispersal is higher priority than normal processing, you should leave dispersal players out of the whitelist. I think that achieves what you want, if I understand it correctly. It doesn't matter what the balancer or the unstacker does for everyone else, it treats dispersal players as a separate and higher priority balancing goal. For example, a dispersal player will not be moved for ordinary balance, if it would make dispersal players unbalanced.

could dispersal priority be higher when the player joins ? and through the round it gets lower than whitelist ?

Two possible explanations:

 

* If the server was full the whole 9 minutes of the round, there will be no balancing nor unstacking. There's no room to move anyone.

 

* If you have a very long whitelist or lots of players with clan tags, the pool of players available to be moved will be small. You won't see many moves, maybe even 0.

Not a bad a idea at all, specially for the "Disperse Evenly By Rank 145", if it made it higher priority when they joined, then it would be nicer. :smile:

 

I love having lvl 145 evenly across both teams, but also as I told PC9, would be nice if it stopped dispersing lvl 145 players on late phase. :smile:

However, the game wouldnt auto balance even when the team difference is 5. I've set autobalance based on 40% roundSPM.

 

I searched the log and says me and my friends are the in whitelist, therfore excluded, but wouldnt it choose someone else if it has excluded me? Because it seems to me that it stopped searching after the exclusion.

Isnt it that a swap, is swithing 2 players, so setting max swaps on 8 is in total 16 people to be moved?

Thanks for checking.

I waswondering if it would be better to lower the size of the late phase tickets to 200 or 150? Downside could be, that several might rage if they get balanced that late. Anyone hwve those settings?

 

On a side note...what does MB do when during the late phase where the balancer is stopped, a lot of people leave? It will leave the field unbalanced right? Or does the plugin have a feature built in to prevent this?

If you have balancer and unstacker off during late fase, you get an unbalanced game yes :sad:, Maby PC9 can built something in for the laste fase that if x amount of players leave, balancer gets turned on for 1 time.

 

Downside is that you will move a lot of players from the winning team, that will leave also i think ! Maby its better to end the round if the round gets realy to unbalanced!

Too many problems to list. Simply does not do what I thought it would.

More than likely my set up of the plugin, besides the global spm balance I would like to see happen, it's just not an option.

Any help would be appreciated.

Back to insane balancer until I can get it sorted.

Really the only thing I was worried about with Multiblancer was the inability to scramble teams at round end while keeping squads together. Just tested the new version of MB and it seems to be doing a fine job at keeping squads together during the shuffle. So far I haven't had any complaints about squads being broken.

 

Hell, without InsaneBalancer or TrueBalancer running we haven't had a crash in several hours!! :P Obviously exaggerating about the severity of procon crashes / lag outs, but all admin tools seem more responsive. This is especially true with multiple populated BF3 servers running on the same procon instance. Previously on startup procon would just lag for several minutes until the stats fetching was caught up (truebalancer), but running MB with Battlelog Cache we're seeing many of the players being updated in seconds because they're already in our DB.

You might want to take a look at planned features for V2*.

 

It would be interesting to see how much of a difference online stats makes to game balance. Unless you run a 24/7 metro server or the like, online global SPM is pretty much worthless to judge who is valuable to your team. I suppose if someone has under 100 SPM you could rule them a 'bad' player. But players from 250+ I would say it's anyone's guess if they're a team (objective) player or not.

 

A metric that could be interesting to try would be vehicle stats. Quite often we see the most lopsided games because there are several very skilled tankers on the server. This is especially true for the smaller city maps. If it were possible to call the next map and identify that it was 'armor heavy' we could then split individuals up who are the armor whores (or jet, helo, etc etc). If there are 4 good tank drivers in different squads, it would be pretty bad to put them all together facing a team made up of guys without any vehicle experience or people with all their time as sniper. Though perhaps this is just getting to the point where it's too confusing. lol. =\

 

There is indeed a lot of 'meat' to this plugin. If you install it now you'll be able to slow cook it to see how everything looks. As you've seen from other posters here, this isn't a plugin you download at 2 AM and have it setup and running by 3AM... no matter how much coke you've had.

 

Now I'm member of the MultiBalancer cult.

Colors indicate squads.

===== END =====
Notice that the US (left column) Echo squad was moved to the RU team and kept the same squad id. Likewise for RU Delta moved to US. But in the case of US Bravo, the RU team already had a Bravo squad, so US Bravo became RU Alpha.

 

Details of the scramble. Shows how the sum of the metric (Rank) is used and the squads are sorted high to low. The top squad is allocated to the losing team first, then the next squad is allocated to the team with the lowest sum, and so on until all the squads are allocated or until a team has the max allowed players.

For some reason Im sorry to say this but Im not too happy (yet) to this balancer, I have been using BF3 truebalancer(happily but it causes procon crashes) and frankly I dont see difference in round score. Major complains about regulars who asked me to change back to old balancer or they stop playing in our servers are: 1) it will tear apart squad even with same clantag (2 with same clantag) has been splitted to both teams according to them many times (yeah I have a correct setting keep squads together on). 2) some people complain that this balancer is always balancing them.

Im using preset standard (I also tried aggressive setting in metro and it was switching some players so many times that they left servers (around 20 from 48) so that setting is at least out of the question. Also many friends complain that they are divided always not same before, I adviced them to make common clantag.

There is so many options and Im not sure is this standard setting the best... But I will keep using this a bit more to see how this works in a long run...

Although it seems to make games not result in baserape which is a big plus, some people complain about always being balanced. On some occasions multiple times a round.

 

Is it possible to limit the plugin balancing a person more then 1 time a round? I feel noone has a problem being balanced 1 time a round but as it takes high score players to swap I feel it's not fair if they are being balanced twice or more even.

 

Maybe im overlooking a setting in the plugin but for now I cant seem to find this.

What are your unswitch settings? Multibalancer does balance/unstack players only 1 time!

    • Game Server Hosting:

      We're happy to announce that EZRCON will branch out into the game server provider scene. This is a big step for us so please having patience if something doesn't go right in this area. Now, what makes us different compared to other providers? Well, we're going with the idea of having a scaleable server hosting and providing more control in how you set up your server. For example, in Minecraft, you have the ability to control how many CPU cores you wish your server to have access to, how much RAM you want to use, how much disk space you want to use. This type of control can't be offered in a single service package so you're able to configure a custom package the way you want it.

      You can see all the available games here. Currently, we have the following games available.

      Valheim (From $1.50 USD)


      Rust (From $3.20 USD)


      Minecraft (Basic) (From $4.00 USD)


      Call of Duty 4X (From $7.00 USD)


      OpenTTD (From $4.00 USD)


      Squad (From $9.00 USD)


      Insurgency: Sandstorm (From $6.40 USD)


      Changes to US-East:

      Starting in January 2022, we will be moving to a different provider that has better support, better infrastructure, and better connectivity. We've noticed that the connection/routes to this location are not ideal and it's been hard getting support to correct this. Our contract for our two servers ends in March/April respectively. If you currently have servers in this location you will be migrated over to the new provider. We'll have more details when the time comes closer to January. The new location for this change will be based out of Atlanta, GA. If you have any questions/concerns please open a ticket and we'll do our best to answer them.

    • Hello All,

      I wanted to give an update to how EZRCON is doing. As of today we have 56 active customers using the services offered. I'm glad its doing so well and it hasn't been 1 year yet. To those that have services with EZRCON, I hope the service is doing well and if not please let us know so that we can improve it where possible. We've done quite a few changes behind the scenes to improve the performance hopefully. 

      We'll be launching a new location for hosting procon layers in either Los Angeles, USA or Chicago, IL. Still being decided on where the placement should be but these two locations are not set in stone yet. We would like to get feedback on where we should have a new location for hosting the Procon Layers, which you can do by replying to this topic. A poll will be created where people can vote on which location they would like to see.

      We're also looking for some suggestions on what else you would like to see for hosting provider options. So please let us know your thoughts on this matter.

    • Hi All,

      So seeing as Venice Unleased is released, I'm looking into if I should offer game hosting for it. I would like some feedback on this subject.

    • So as the topic title says, should EZRCON offer general web hosting services?
      • 1 reply
    • Added ability to disable the new API check for player country info


      Updated GeoIP database file


      Removed usage sending stats


      Added EZRCON ad banner



      If you are upgrading then you may need to add these two lines to your existing installation in the file procon.cfg. To enable these options just change False to True.

      procon.private.options.UseGeoIpFileOnly False
      procon.private.options.BlockRssFeedNews False
