Stop by sometime and check this one out ...
theres a bunch of servers that let you start at the highets rank
We play CTF. Starting with all that would be sorta dumb and lose its appeal very fast Id say. I mean wots the point...its really nice to know you climbed the ladder to get to the higer ranks. Longer standing quality players wouldnt like to always jump into the high ranks straight off.
has anyone ever been in a server without battle ranks? if you have how much ammo and everything do yuo get? i have never been in a server without battle ranks
Remember...its just a game!

Wotta ya mean 'no rank' I always start fresh with just one stripe. Is this what you mean? If so...the servers we play on In NZ and Aussie have some pretty kick ass players. Starting high on the rank tables kind of n00bess really!! Earn it I say. Cya. :-)
Do you know servers which allow artillery's from start? I tried that upper one, but it doesn't allow start with an artillery.

The primary gun usually varies depending on which side you have, but all are under 125 rounds. The secondary has 56 rounds. All have 2 grenades and I think that everyone starts with 2 smokes except snipers. All of the ammo varies on which kit you take. The reason for no ranks on our servers -- no tanks or artillery. We play a "classic" gametype in which the infantry rules the day. Jeeps are enabled, and we do allow the bazooka, panzershrek, and panzerfaust to assist in stopping the jeeps. Key words in the server names are like Infantry Only, or just plain Infantry. [QUOTE=spammikone]Do you know servers which allow artillery's from start?

I've not seen any at all. Although, there are a lot of BAS servers I haven't played.
In your server config file add the line: Forcerank 5
I also think you can do it through the console but I'm not sure as I've never tried it: /rcon forcerank 5
If you have too many people with artillery, the fun factor lowers very quickly. I like the default way of having it where people have to earn it. It'd be even better if we could make it where you can select something like a 'scout' class where you could call it in.
I have to agree with Duvall on this one. Whatever happened to earning your rewards??? As much as I love artillery strikes (they are so cool) starting the game with them would be like being born rich. ie: spoiled
