As title says, I'm wondering at this point. On our servers we see nothing to indicate that aggressive join is a thing but according to some it has become a thing afterall. So at this point I just straight up want to have the answer. Devs wont reply. but it would be appreciated.

    My guess it does not work as expected.

    It does work, if you mean that when a VIP lister joins and there is a que, it kicks somebody and puts the VIP lister in the server. If this is what you're referring to, then yes it works and it's also broken. I cleared my VIP list of everyone including myself. There is not one name on it, however the system still thinks there are names on the list. When I join the server with a que, it automatically puts me on it. Even if there are 6 waiting in que.

    Good to know :)

    And yes it was about this since it was really unclear at this point. Today I saw the first person in my own servers commenting about seeing a message stating he/she was kicked for "making room for admin".

    Ok but aren't you an admin on the server? Then you are vip automatically.

    On reddit I saw the message that that is also what people get to read when an VIP joins.

    p.s. on-topic aggressive join works.

    It's working nicely with us and also works when I remove a player from the list. It's working from both VIP and Moderator list.
    It also send a message: You were kicked to make room for admin. They could update the kick message with word VIP/Admin.
    But this is the first BF game that gives you a VIP kick message :) Thank you for giving this finally.
    Server owner is has VIP automatically, so he/she doesn't need to be added to any list.

    Now, if they could just teach it to kick last joined not someone who has been on server for two hours.

    I am the admin but it would be nice to have the option of being able to aggressive join or wait in que like everybody else. Unless there is a hacker or some other reason I need to jump on quickly, I don't think that it's fair to just kick somebody who may have already accumulated a lot of points in the round and may have spent time waiting in que. Admin should have to add themselves to the VIP list IMO.

    I think it's the good thing that server owner doesn't need to be added to list. I like that feature, and I like aggressive.join function. Of course it could kick last joiner or lowest scorer instead of random non vip.

    Is aggressive join still working? I actually had to sit in que this weekend on my server. Normally it just puts me right on, regardless of how many are in que.

    Likely broke it with last update.

    It's working but sometimes it's a bit laggy, has to rejoin when it happens.
