Arcade Servers and legit servers for hive skill ranks

Hi mates,

im asking myself if there are any restrictions for servers which transmit data to ns2 to calculate the hive skill?
How many mods can i install until my server is located as a Arcade Server which dosnt change my hive skill?

For example:
If i install mods which make the game unbalanced, could it be still not arcade?

Regards,
Snooops

    There is a whitelist of mods you are allowed to use to be considered whitelisted, but as long as you're at 24 or fewer player slots and not running any mod that changes the "game mode" such as combat or siege, you'll be in the NS2 tab.

    Well ...
    im not sure about it, but the SEK2000 Server uses its own logic of team balancing and not the hive skill data like all other servers. I have played a few games on it and it was allways clear - the team with the highest hive scores won the game.
    Im not using this server anymore - and i dont want to blame anybody.

    That is considered fine since people can just naturally stack and decide not to shuffle. It's not like NS2 is very balanced with perfect hive skill nowadays anyways, since aliens are winning around 60% of games on average.

    You still gain and lose hive skill on whitelisted servers according to how the teams matched up against each other...
