Min. required 8 players for round starts in BF3 is the default setting in the startup.txt file. Are we allowed to modify this default setting to four (as it was in BC2) on our Public server? This way we can at least seed our server, now it just sits there empty all of the time. I know how to make it happen, but are we allowed to do so on Public servers? I presume there are now regulations pertaining to private warservers? Else we wouldn't even be allowed to explore the maps and practice squadbased playing? It's all a bit confusing to me so pls let me know what is and isn't allowed.
