I had 2 servers on BF4 and it only worked because of 2 things.
1 - Most important Kicking and banning hackers. This disuades hacking and also keeps people coming back to servers which ban scumbags. Now the latest DLC is launched it is back to epidemic proportions.
2 - Various things should just happen but dont in Battlefield. Auto kick beyond a ridiculous parameter of KD etc or Auto balancing and reducing the number of players to start. Did this happen or can you now use some plugins?
I have a fair bit of admin experience on various games and I was disappointed that, at least on the surface, the server rental programme seemed like a loot box style attempt to just squeeze more out of the players while reducing choice. Perhaps not so surprising now. So I couldnt use my favourite companies. But things may have moved on a lot and where I really didnt like the game, some new maps are more fun so I am luring old clan friends back occassionally, maybe more so if we had hacker unfriendly server to play on. Are the above possible? Otherwise I am basically just paying for EA infrastructure in my view.
