Its no different then saying PISTOLS ONLY on your own server then running around and hosing people down with an M60 but it kicks or kills the opposing players when they try to do the same thing.
they are obviously using some sort of hack or exploit to bypass the server rules.
I didn't say those servers don't exist, I just said they are breaking TOS technically and they are just hoping for people to abide by the rules they want. They can kill you as a server Mod without breaking TOS, but kicking you for using a specific weapon is against TOS. So if someone wanted to be a pain, they could join said servers, use the weapons they want, report the kicks and such. Also most sever admin kills don't count as deaths against you. So you can noob tube all day for kills then eat an admin kill and keep that kdr.
Ranked Server Administrators:
If you are an administrator of a ranked Battlefield 3 server (referred to below as a "Server Administrator"), you must also comply with the EA Online Terms and Conditions.
Server Administrators are in violation of the EA Online Terms and Conditions if they enforce server rules on ranked servers that prohibit or severely limit players from using any roles, kits, weapons, vehicles, or other features of the game while playing on their server. Examples of such rules that would violate the EA Online Terms and Conditions include:
Running knife / pistol-only servers
Preventing players from using certain weapons or items (such as flash bangs or C4) or enforcing a "pistol only" or "knife only" server rule
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. Examples of such rules that are acceptable are:
Disallowing repeated main base camping/attacking of bases that cannot be captured.
Limiting the use of mortars to a particular region of the map.

I enjoy sitting in my chair and playing pretend war. If I wanted more realism, other games are out there, but they dont have the fan base simply because they are more rough. I actually enjoy lower damage models, the less bullets it takes to kill I find teams just don't want to move, it just becomes a sniper/camp fest as people know that when you make a break to flank, you die too easily. Just kills strategy.
