Official Servers with all maps?

As a Premium player once again I have a massive issue with the state of the official servers.

Why can't we have official servers supporting all the Vanilla and DLC maps? When my OAP Platoon jump into a server we are there for many hours and don't want to switch servers just to play other maps and lose other friends upon the way.

Some of you are maybe thinking why don't we rent a server? We've had a server previously for months and currently have one just for a week but we just can't fill it up. We've tried the PS4 Community to advertise but once again it's proved to be a waste of money.

Surely there are many of you just wish to play on a server which rotates all maps for the variety? I like the DLC maps but with just a rotation of 5 maps the same ones come around too quickly.

    It's a nice idea, but in practice, it does not work. As soon as you get a DLC map in the rotation, the server dies due to the number of people that do not have premium. This is the experience we have from our server, but it will be no different on DLC servers, UNLESS they are clearly marked as rotation servers and taken out of quick match for non premium players.

    I'm not being defeatist. Just pragmatic.

    What's this got to do with the OP's question, or are you just spamming the forums on this and other threads?

    Or just run servers like in BF3, some with all maps, some just dlc, some just vanilla maps.

    Just to follow on from first post. We spent a total of around 90 minutes in our server last night waiting for it to possibly fill up. 'All Maps' was listed in the title so perhaps nobody wants to play all the rotation after all.

    I'm looking forward to the next DLC but this server situation is splitting the game into mini expansions on their own rather than giving us a chance to play everything.

    I agree it would be nice to have official servers with all maps in one rotation.
    Im sure its possible and might not sit well with the community but Perhaps having a few premium pass only servers available?
    that way everyone in them would own all maps/content.

    This.

    At the very least there should be some public servers with all maps in rotation. Sorry, but this is BS - I have to do more searching and waiting for a spot for a server with all maps, or choose one that dosn´t, than I am actually getting to play the game (which I did pay a lot for when it was first released).

    I also agree, DICE a few servers with all maps and dlcs dedicated to those who spent their money on premium would be nice.

    Thank you! Im asking for this in the foruns but no one seems to Care. I dont understand how people are satisfied with this situation...

    I would love an all map solution... the maps should be marked 'Premium-only' (available to all during premium trials events) to begin with and hopefully, enough people populate the server to keep it going.

    This has been an ongoing issue for as long as I can remember, well back to BF3 (First console server browser)

    I have no idea why they cannot technically have an official server with all the maps in rotation.

    Secondly there is the ongoing issue of filling servers with randoms which unless you have a massively popular server is a futile exercise. Surely a rented server should have access to quick match players. Is there some Dice explanation as to why not.

    Hopefully we'll get some Official 'All Map Servers' soon. I've given up trying to fill private server, it's just chucking money down the drain.

    Agreed OP. Don't see how this has not already been done since it's a pretty basic concept and surely can't be hard to do.

    You know Dice runs that Premium friends, so why not have all maps in rotation while that is going on at loeast.

    Whilst I fully agree with and support this idea (which isn't new, BF3 had it), I fear @HuwJarz is correct.

    We had a great Sunday night on the Battlefield with our OAP Community but yet again we had to pull out of the server half way through the night and get everyone back into a server for the base maps. Please just trial an official server or with all maps. There was a private one available with all maps but you had to dig deep to find it and then you have the issue of trying to fill it.
