I was recently playing on a server that the owner of the server is selling many ingame items to anyone who will donate to him directly he has several donation packages all of them include many in game items to help the donater get a huge advantage in the game the way i understand the t.o.s is that you are not allowed to selling in game items for profit on any server the server name is battlegrounds pvp https://7daystodie-servers.com/server/57687/ the owner of the server then decided to ban multiple players from his server who notified him that what he was doing was against the t.o.s of the fun pimps and he swiftly banned them me included i am a streamer on twitch and a long time 7 days player and feel as though someone profiting off of all the work the developers did is wrong most of the ones that donated when they found out it was wrong the promptly requested refunds from there pay pal and the server owner is fighting the claims. this server is very toxic i dont recommend playing on it at this time
Watch as this server ranking plummets, the up-time decreases, and the server dies...all thanks to Godaddy and his lack of personnel skills and treating players like absolute crap. Godaddy said I was a toxic player right before he banned me this time. Yea sure, I'm a toxic player if that means I help players and admins, vote on the server daily, donate money, and express truthful concerns about Godaddy and his lack of caring.

You have the right to post your opinion (positive or negative) but stay polite and do not make drama or flame war.
I will follow these rules and post my honest review of the server after more than 5 months of playtime on it.
The mods used on the server are some of the best I have ever seen.
Lack of active admins: There are 6 admins (Matniq, Lepreacher, Sk8, Zero, Bosnian (made admin today) and of course the owner Godaddy) and the only 1 that is active is Bosnian.
Lack of consistency and knee-jerk reactions: Godaddy deletes (without notice or with maybe an hour notice) anything that he feels causes server lag--this includes bedrolls, minibikes, vending machines, bases or parts of bases, mods, etc. Makes game changing decisions in 30 seconds without care for the player.
Constant wipes: I have never seen the server go past 600 days, ie constant wiping, up to 4 times in 1 month.
Favoritism: Godaddy has favoritism and treats most players like crap. He bans/kicks anyone at anytime for anything...literally makes up rules on the spot and chooses who he enforces them on.
I have been banned numerous times for being a "troublemaker". Troublemaker includes things like asking questions and expressing concern for the lack of admin presence. I have personally tried to help Godaddy address problems and fix issues, and donated more than $150...my mistake. Additionally, Godaddy will allow his friends to disregard his rules.
Power tripping/abusing admins:
Admins routinely cuss out and/or yell at players for sometimes seemingly no reason.
Admins will blame players for whatever they want with zero proof.
Example: my base turrets killed Lepreacher (an admin) who logged in for his monthly check up, while I was offline. When I logged in, I was instantly put in jail and cussed out by Lepreacher and Godaddy for killing an admin. When I finally got them to understand I can't control turrets while I'm offline, Lepreacher rage logged from the game while i was stuck in jail until Godaddy freed me.
Second example: A few weeks ago a player named Sarumain was banned for using an aimbot. Shortly after, something happened to the server and Godaddy proclaimed that it was being DDOS'd by Sarumain. After a couple hours, Godaddy regained control of the server. The following day, my friend AzoVFU was playing and Godaddy banned him. I asked why he got banned and Godaddy said that he DDOS'd the server last night (even though it was already established this was Sarumain).
I can provide many more of these examples upon request.
The server runs like shit and Godaddy is liar/thief:
After several weeks straight of the server running terrible (often times less than 1 FPS) Godaddy proclaimed he had to get a new dedicated box to run his server (because he received a notice that he couldn't run anymore on a shared server). Godaddy said he would need 160-270 USD to get a new box. (This doesn't make sense to me since he receives hundreds of USD from players buying VIP packs for 35 USD a month). GOdaddy states all this money goes directly to the server but in actuality he uses it to open servers for other games (ARK, LiF, Rust, Conan, etc). He even solicited additional funds from players to get the dedicated box. He got the box (allegedly) and it still runs like garbage...It will run ok for a couple hours and then back down to less than 1 FPS...guess what the problem according to Godaddy is...the players. Godaddy never takes accountability for his actions or lack of actions.
Good god. I have never seen an admin start drama like Godaddy. If a player starts drama, they are banned. If Godaddy starts drama, its a normal occurrence.
Overall: Avoid at all costs! It is an extremely poorly run server that runs extremely poorly. The lack of pvp servers forces players to this server, but I promise, save yourself the heartache, and avoid it.
I agree with everything TheHensch said just now. The administrator is just atrocious.
Aside from the fact that he is a liar and has a horrible temper (already covered by hensch), GoDaddy and co. simply make horrible, awful decisions and has no idea how to troubleshoot problems or use any kind of deductive reasoning.
Example: Back when there were minibikes, he had this rule of "no minibikes in lobby." He would go CRAZY if he saw one there and threaten to delete it, often without allowing any time for you to take it apart. Then, after a few wipes he made teleporting minibikes illegal entirely, despite the fact that that wasn't a problem.
There were still plenty of problems with minibikes, since the bike frequently gets stuck or teleports ahead of you or falls into the ground, and these problems are normal to 7d2d. So after he got sick of dealing with everyone losing their bikes, he added a command #lostbike that would teleport your minibike to you as long as you were close enough for it to show an indicator in your compass. Well, this WAS a good idea, IMO, except he fucked it up by making it have NO cooldown. The result was that you could use the command as often as you wanted, as many times as you wanted. You could use the fact that it always teleported the bike one block to the north of you to glitch into walls and break into bases, and at the very least, see through walls and get intel. The simple solution to this problem would be to have a cooldown of 15 seconds or so. Any longer and it would be bad for players who have legitimate problems with bike and need it to be rescued, any shorter and it could be abused in the manner described above.
We told GoDaddy about this problem, and for a while he did nothing about it. Then, at the end of 2017 he wiped the server and removed minibikes completely.
So as a result of his bad decision making and inability to accurately assess the cause of a problem, we have no more minibikes. In order to get around, we have to use a special item called Speed Pill, which is fairly rare and takes a LOT of vending machine runs to gather up a stack.
Now, this wasn't that much of an issue since the map that came up after wipe had a lot of cities that were fairly close together, and several custom prefabs with lots of vending machines. BUT, not two and a half weeks later, he wiped server AGAIN and the map that came up has half the number of cities as before, they are twice as far apart, and have NO custom prefabs.
Somehow GD got it into his head that that either the custom prefabs or the number of cities or both were causing the lag. They weren't. What was causing the lag was players collapsing buildings and dropmining. And guess what? on the new map with no custom prefabs and half the cities.... server FPS STILL regularly is between 1.2 and 0.2, which is completely unplayable if you are traveling or PVP-ing
I have played on Mayhem' server, DirtyOldBastard's server, and one other that had teleports to lobby, and there were NEVER any problems with minibikes teleporting on those servers! They even designed their lobbies to be minibike-friendly with a nice open area to teleport to and a ramp/drawbridge leading out. Problems? NEVER. And I teleported on the bike a LOT. Well, GoDaddy's lobbies were never designed for minibikes. In fact, they were never DESIGNED at all, they were either some tiny, simple piece of shit that you HAD to teleport to get out of, or they were some prefab that he downloaded and added traders to. Usually these prefabs were wholly inappropriate as a PVP lobby. Which leads me into my next point...
DirtyOldBastard's server and one other server I played DID have custom prefabs, and didn't seem to have any problems with them. It also had a lot of cities fairly close together.
A LOT of the prefabs on DoB's server showed up on BattlegroundsPVP. And a lot of the mods on Battlegrounds show up on other servers, too. Valmod is the most obvious one, except he tweaked it a bit to be slightly different. And the rest of the mods were created by the modder BeatKidz.
So Godaddy is a copy-paste admin through and through. He's basically a copy-paste PERSON, considering his name was Negan before it was Godaddy and his "wife" (his alt account) was named Lucile, names taken straight from The Walking Dead. Now he's called "GoDaddy" which is not only obvious but, IMO, kind of a dumb choice of a name to copy.
The server used to be called "Nuketown" which I thought was rather unique and catchy, until I was told me that Nuketown is the name of a map in a different game. Figures. Now the server is called "Battlegrounds" which is plain, uninspired and excessively common as a name for both servers and videogames, think PubG, etc.
GD doesn't seem to have an original or creative bone in his body, which would be fine, except he tries to pass off ALL of the custom prefabs and ALL of the mods as his own work. No credit at all to the creators who did the work making those awesome prefabs. Nobody would really care, as long as he credited those people, but he doesn't.
So GD is a LAZY admin. And trust me, I am something of an authority on the subject of lazy. Whenever a problem gets complicated GD rages and logs off, then gets someone else to fix it for him. Whenever I or anyone else ask him to log in to fix something simple, we get ignored. He is very, VERY difficult to talk to, not just because of his broken English but because he just wont reply to you, or answer some very simple questions.
It seems like for some time now GD has gotten sick of doing simple admin tasks and dealing with questions from every player that logs in. Well, guess what? THAT'S WHAT ADMINS HAVE TO DO, ITS IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION!! I mean, ESPECIALLY for a game like this which is still in Alpha and riddled with bugs and glitches, all changing every time there's a new update. He should have known what he was getting into when he started all of this. I was admin of a counterstrike:source server for half a year, and I had to deal with all kinds of drama and ban list adjustments and bugs with mods. That was a COMPLETED game with less than half the issues of 7d2d and I STILL got sick of it after a while. Fortunately I wasn't the only admin there so I had help.... which leads me into ANOTHER point.
GD could hire other admins to help hm out, and he did. When I joined the server, he had this one admin who was nice and gave me a pistol when I joined. The next day, he was gone and the day after that I found out he was banned because he was recruiting for another server. Fair enough. Then he got this other guy, Jeff, to be an admin for him. Jeff spent a lot of time building this cool sphinx for a lobby, then HE got banned too, I'm not sure why. I think there was like one more admin that came and went before he got a player named Kevlar to be admin. Kevlar was pretty cool, his English was good and he knew how the game worked and how people play it. But about 5 days later, he was gone, too. I asked, and he quit being admin because he "couldn't stand dealing with GoDaddy anymore."
So he can't hold on to any admins for any length of time because either they piss him off or he pisses them off. Well, he FINALLY found an admin who speaks French and has pretty good English. He is responsive, and genuinely seems to care about other players, and has never gone off on an all-caps tirade like GD does on a regular basis. BUT, unfortunately, this admin is basically Godaddy Lite. He still blames problems on the wrong thing, has no deductive reasoning skills and wont investigate other players when asked to (if he has, he hasn't said anything to me)
So in short, the quality of person that is willing to be an admin for GD is only a few steps above ShitDaddy himself. And to be fair to GD's admin, he is really nice and does really try, and is quick to respond to players with issues.
So, in short, GD and co. have no business being in charge of anything. Every solution that they have come up with is either wrong, ineffective, or causes additional problems that need MORE fixes. GD himself is petty and vain, prone to bouts of anger, and completely clueless as to how people want to play PvP.
This server is great with great mods. The only problem with the server is the administrator, Godaddy, and the owner, LePreacher. Without them, there would be far, FAR fewer problems and a lot less drama.
Horrible admins, the owner clearly lacks basic knowledge of running a server. Within a few weeks of playing server has probably had %60 up time if that. Even after collecting hundreds in donations still asked for more to get a dedicated box and wound up doing the same thing. Avoid this server if you want to actually play and not wipe every other day or experience 7-15sec lag delays on your actions. sad, could've been a great server if the owner didn't spend %99 of his time playing Rust with his buddies
Hey Bad Cops! Its OC. It is OC that you have been asking for my servertools code. I have to remark something mate. Why are you modding 7 days into battlegrounds instead of playing battlegrounds? It is like modding tetris into doom. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
So far a buddy and I have been having a blast on the server, have not seen any drama so far, although the admin seems to play Ark more lately than 7D2D it is the most fun I have had on a 7D2D server in a while, I only have about 1200 hours in the game but it’s been a while since I was as interested in playing as I am now that I have joined this server
Basically, I played this server for a few hours then hopped on Mayhem to tell my buddies about it. The server owner (GoDaddy) then messaged me saying that anyone that plays on Mayhem isn't welcome, and that I was banned.
I mean your server is cool, but I won't be bullied in any fashion, much less by some broken English-speakind sumbitch with a God complex.
Besides, I'm just playing there until Outsiderz comes back up. :) Your loss, too. I donate heavily, as do many others in my crew. You can't threaten people to only play on your server. I would rather play vanilla than play on a server with an admin that banhappy.
Calm your tits, dude. Taking this shit too seriously lmao
I added you. My name is Silly Willy ingame.
I am eager to hear why you would ban someone for playing on another server. So far, all I've seen is unprofessionalism rivaling that of an angsty preteen that's buying a server with their mom's credit card.
I'm 29 years old. I haven't seen a high school hallway in over ten years. I don't miss the drama, nor do I look for it in a game I play. You need to grow up.
GoDaDDy: I wanted to advise you that anyone who plays on mayhem is not binned to my server
GoDaDDy: im sry
GoDaDDy: delete me the your friend
Silly Willy: Oh. Ok lol.
*Re-Added as requested here*
Silly Willy: So why am I not allowed to play on Mayhem?
Silly Willy: Even though I paid for this game?
Silly Willy: What gives you the right to tell me I cannot play other servers?
GoDaDDy: BECAUSE ALLUCASH THE FOUNDER OF SERVER OF SHIT IS ONE OF MY JOY WHO FLY TO PLAY ME AND WHO STATER A SERVER THEN HERE IS THE REAL REASON
Silly Willy: That's between you and him.
Silly Willy: You did not buy me the game.
Silly Willy: You cannot tell me how to play it.
Silly Willy: Or where.
GoDaDDy: HIS SERVER IS BLACKLISTED
Silly Willy: I don't give a flying fuck if Allu DDoS you, hack your facebook, steal your bank info, whatever. That's between you and him.
Silly Willy: I did nothing wrong, and I'm free to play both if I so choose.
Sadly, he seems unable to discuss this calmly (or legibly). So play here at your own risk, and definitely be careful donating. You may not be allowed to play on any servers he doesn't like the admins on.
I should also add that while his sever is 30-slotted, 10 of those are donor-only. Donating also gets you a set of 600 gear (including a sniper), so it's pretty pay-to-win. When confronted, the admin will say that players can refuse the donation reward if they want.
and you are your dump a shit your just stupid you pence you're gonna show me silly code it's my praying not even a minute code your code so find it better yours prays for more than a month and what are you saying to everyone no one has got his fashion happy santa dinbesil tabarnack
See, comments like this will do nothing to help your rep. If you want to steal players from Mayhem PvP, then you just need to provide a better atmosphere. Threatening to ban anyone that plays on Mayhem is just going to cost you, not Mayhem. They never made me choose, therefore I respect them more.
Instead of throwing tantrums, maybe just learn what you need to do to make your server better.
I have played on the server for several months. Over the course of these months I have watch the server grow and the admin team improve the server greatly.
The main admin is also quite the modder. New and fun content is constantly being released. New weapons, features, skills, craftables, custom spawns, and commands.
The admin is also on quite frequently to try and resolve any conflicts or problems that may arise. Most notably he recently found a workaround for the "black screen of death" problem.
Although it is a pvp server, the community at large is usually pretty friendly to chat/play with. Destruction for pleasure is not tolerated...only what is necessary to conduct a raid.
The only "complaint" I think I really have is that the admin speaks French. Although he knows English pretty well, at times it is difficult to communicate a point. The language barrier does cause some frustration when not being able to communicate how you are intending.
Overall, this is the ONLY server I play on. Try it out, you will probably like it too.
After I died because of an invisible sleeping tourist zombie that spawned in my house, I went to click on spawn on my bed, the screen went black, but the "Alpha 16.2 (b7)" is still visible in the top right corner, but I can't Esc or see anything. Every time I restart the game and log into this server, I get the same black screen but the server console pops up for some reason.
If the server Admins can save my inventory somehow and then delete my player profile, so I can log in normally again and be teleported back to my old /home, that'd be nice.
