Why do I have the feeling that the change of the Rules of Conduct has something to do with that DICE guy who got caught playing on a pistol/melee only server?
Huh?

Even in BF2142 the pistol and knife servers weren't allowed.


Well, since 6 days those servers are allowed.
Rules of Conduct got updated on 4/10/2013, and the part with the "pistol, knife only" got removed.

And to answer your question about that DICE guy... here you go:

No where in the ROC does it say they are allowed.

In fact, it mentions, clearly,

Server Administrators may implement and enforce rules that result in minor changes to gameplay behavior or styles as long as these are clearly stated before a player starts playing on a server. These rules typically introduce minor or limited restrictions on how a certain aspect of the game can be used, but do not create or promote an environment that would allow abuse of the scoring/award system.

https://help.ea.com/article/bf3-rules-of-conduct [help.ea.com]

Knife/pistol/sniper only servers do promote abuse of the scoring/award system. Still not allowed.

If you are an administrator of a ranked Battlefield 3 server (referred to as a "Server Administrator"), there are some restrictions to the rules you can change or add. If you are on an unranked server, you can enforce any rule you want. However, on ranked servers, you cannot enforce server rules that prohibit or severely limit players from using any roles, kits, weapons, vehicles, or other features of the game while playing on their server.

https://help.ea.com/article/bf3-private-servers-info [help.ea.com]

Therefore, nothing has changed. Joining servers that are boost, flagrun, knife/pistol only are unbalancing the score/award system.

So why did that german EA employee say, that those servers are allowed now?

Link to his statement is in my initial post

On the part of Dice there's the statement, that server with such restrictions (knife only, pistol only) are allowed.
• We have updated the Rules of Conduct slightly
• We are no longer enforcing server admins to not run “knife only servers” and similar

problem is, anti-knifeonly rules dont get enforced. No matter how many times you report.
Just look at the scoreboard for knife kills haha

Lol this gonna be good. Imma grab my popcorn for ea team fight.
#1 in the world across all systems with the .44 magnum. #1 in the world across all systems with the Deagle. #1 in the world on PS3 with handgun kills. 115SS with the magnum prebuff. RIP DELAY. Forget game balance I carved my entire reputation around mastering an asinine totally unrealistic mechanic that should have never been in the game from the start, and now I can't declare it was 100% pre buff!

You have a knife as your top weapon.
