Quick Match players, have I got it right? startup/config included.

Hi,

Can someone check my startup/config to see if I should get quick match players, or help me get quick match players.

We have an 18 slots BF3 server currently running, the originial BF3 maps, mix of Rush, Conquest and Team Deathmatch.

Config/startup.txt
vars.friendlyfire false
vars.idleTimeout 300
vars.teamKillCountForKick 5
vars.teamKillValueForKick 0
vars.teamKillValueIncrease 1
vars.teamKillValueDecreasePerSecond 0
vars.autoBalance true
vars.killCam true
vars.miniMap true
vars.3dSpotting true
vars.miniMapSpotting true
vars.3pCam true
vars.idleBanRounds 0
vars.vehicleSpawnAllowed true
vars.vehicleSpawnDelay 100
vars.bulletDamage 100
vars.nameTag true
vars.regenerateHealth true
vars.roundRestartPlayerCount 2
vars.roundStartPlayerCount 2
vars.onlySquadLeaderSpawn false
vars.unlockMode "stats"
vars.soldierHealth 100
vars.hud true
vars.playerManDownTime 100
vars.playerRespawnTime 100
vars.gameModeCounter 100
punkBuster.activate

We also run ProCon with the following plugins
BF3 Auto Message
Adaptive Server Size (when empty it set to 0/4)
In-Game Admin
Killrate Checker
Spambot
True Balancer BF3
Insane Limits

I have read the R21 admin docs for BF3 and it says:

Quickmatch
First off, there is the Quickmatch operation.
Quickmatch will only go against ranked servers. Also, the ping site setting is taken into consideration; players will have a slight preference to game servers which belong to the player’s closest ping site location.
If the user has not selected any filters in the server browser filter, then a couple of default search criteria will be applied:
- Preset: Normal (see below)
- Game Mode: Rush, Conquest, Team Deathmatch
- Game: Base game only (not Back to Karkand)
If you select any items in the following categories in the server browser filter, then they replace the corresponding default criteria:
- Preset
- Game Mode
- Maps
- Game (base / Back to Karkand)
Other categories have no effect on quickmatch.


On that basis, it looks like I have it covered, just wanting confirmation, I have it right.

Also, if I was to change maps over the Back to Karkand only would Quick Match still work?
Regards,
Garry
