[BB] Bella's Battleground Server/Community

ChrisJChrisJ Member Posts: 25 ★★

Who We Are

Bella's Battleground has been active for over 5 years now with a reputation for being a well moderated server. With more than a dozen admins and over a hundred [BB] members, the server is almost never left unattended. Several clans and regulars call our server home and actively work with us to achieve the most balanced matches possible. We do our best to make sure the server is welcoming, enjoyable, and there is a common respect for all players, new and seasoned. We have over 20 layer rotations we cycle through with a focus on RAAS/AAS while also throwing Territory Control, Invasion, and Insurgency in to the mix regularly.

Why We're Here

Our server currently fills by around 4:00 PM and begins to taper off around 1:30 AM. We would like to increase the active server hours by filling earlier and lasting later. (Times are Central Daylight Time (CDT), UTC -5) To that end, we're actively seeking players to fill the server as early as 12:00 PM(with plans to further increase active time once this is achieved) and last as late as possible. In other words, if you're sick of server surfing or waiting in queues during any of the above times; come check us out! Visiting clans are often granted whitelist in exchange for helping seed/promoting server balance.

What We Ask

If any of the above piqued your interest/curiosity(it should have) find us in the Squad server browser and join our discord server! Server rules can be found in the #welcome channel. Engage with the community, ask about us/the server(#squad banter), join us in voice chat, post memes, etc. If going public isn't your style you're more than welcome to DM Bella, myself, or any of the other server admins(marked by A[BB] in server or Purple name in discord) with questions!

P.S. Whilst joining [BB] is never required/expected, it does have its perks!


Regards,

Bella's Battleground Community

    I think this is a great server and I've had many gg's here. Good luck!

    I would avoid this server like the plague, the community is tainted by the staff team unfortunately.

    I am a man with autism, my in-game name was "stone cold steve autism" and I had been playing on this server for at least 24 hours with no issues whatsoever, people were interacting with me and I had nothing but wholesome interactions with the community through this name. As a person with autism, I personally would not take issue if someone else were to use this username or a username similar as they are not using the term "autism" in a derogatory manner. I have used this name across numerous different servers on squad and other games with community ran servers with 0 issues whatsoever.

    Last night, I posted in chat "any chance of a squad opening up? stone cold steve autism needs a place to stay". a few seconds later I was greeted with a kick demanding that I change the name. I went onto their discord to try and clear the air, explain my situation and hopefully move forward. Please note that I was more than happy to change my name, I did not appreciate the way that Bella and her admins talked to me and the way they addressed the issue. Partial discord transcript below, happy to provide the full transcript.

    kjh — Today at 01:24 Hi there, I'm an autistic man and I have the in game name Stone Cold Steve Autism. I don't think it is fair for you to demand that I change my name, kicking me from the game because you believe that my name is offensive instead of taking a few seconds to talk to me

    I've been autistic for my 23 years on this planet, you taking offence on my behalf when I am making a light joke of my condition does nothing except build frustration. I have had people laugh at my name all day and as an autistic person I enjoyed the social encounters I experienced as a result, I do not think it was fair for you to kick me in this manner.

    Now, I would understand if I was making a derogatory comment regarding autism, by all means punish me. Simply having the word autism in my name should not be grounds for punishment, it is not hate speech.

    As a licensed server we are obligated to enforce the CoC.

    How does my name break the CoC?

    You may see your name a joke, but others can find it offensive/disrespectful.

    How does my name break the CoC?

    "Bella ♡ — Today at 01:37

    The word itself is a derogatory term whether it's malicious or not and is not allowed on the server. Same as words like retard. Someone names themselves with the word retard in their username, it is not allowed."

    Not only is this statement insanely offensive, but it is also horrendously tone-deaf to the issue at hand. The word itself is not a derogatory term at all, the context matters a great deal. I understand their perspective that they want a friendly and inclusive community and there were countless ways for them to go about saying this without being incredibly disrespectful to me and my condition. I sat in their waiting for admin voice channel for 20+ minutes whilst they all sat in their admin channel typing to me, would it have been so difficult for you to have a friendly chat with me? Why did you immediately go on the defensive, saying that my name broke the CoC? To me, this seems like a petty excuse to exercise your power on an online gaming community and is a sad reflection of the mindset of the staff team. Like I said, would have been happy to change my name if you were to speak to me like a human being and not a prisoner in your discord pow camp.
