I have an idea ... why not add a 'report' feature to a BF3/4 style RSP? If that's done, servers run by badmins could be reported, DICE could investigate every report, and then act accordingly; servers following EA's TOS, even if they're being silly with rules, can stay, but those breaking the TOS get removed. Servers with excessive badmins, boosting servers and flagrunning servers would all get banned, and only mostly reasonable servers would get to thrive. Maybe they should also allow BF1942 style servers, so it would be easier to run custom servers, which would end up increasing the amount of reasonable servers.
Once in a while, I would find a decent admin running a server. Sure, it wouldn't be as common as everyone else here is insisting it is (in my personal experience) but they weren't impossible to find. I have a feeling that players like Ravic and Relaa would not like custom servers that much ... they seem to get banned pretty much constantly.

It's sad to see such a good franchise go down the toilet in a few short years. The RSP system we had with Battlefield 2 and on worked just fine and kept money in EA's pockets for years. The fact that Battlefield 1 had a broken RSP and took MONTHS after release to implement (I mean putting a server custom when you change the amount of players to start a round??? seriously???) Or the fact EA caters to the toxic community members that love to hack, use racism/bigotry. I got kicked for being toxic, let me go complain to EA about that bad admin. Mind blowing. Who ever said this said it best... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Give us back the old system we had and you'll have a lot better sales on PC and a lot of happy LOYAL gamers that have invested thousands of dollars into your product. And to top it off, this is the first time I started searching for RSP for BFV and I already knew what I would find.

Well with lack of features and all the stuff EA/ DICE is doing here what Wall Street Thinks of EA.
Electronic Arts Downgraded - Do not buy
I guess it is no wonder, the heads at EA are selling their shares off.

Looks like all community functions are delayed, Platoons are not available at the launch either.
I bought Origin Premiere so I can play BFV at the launch but I will look how long I continue it if nothing happens.

After what happened with BF1, I'd prefer there to not be "Custom" servers. I stopped playing on the Hardcore servers and started playing the Weekly maps/modes in preparation for BFV, and I don't feel I'm missing out on anything.
I actually like that BFV has a faster TTK, which removes the "need" for Hardcore servers. I also like that the Beta had an improved "Mission" system which actually had me interested in more types of play. I also feel that the game could have a longer life if -some- of the play base wasn't huddled in custom server corners of the game.

Why is boosting even relevant? Seriously, who gives a damn if someone is cheating their stats. It has absolutely no bearing on you.
Even if they're using it to complete challenges, it's not like it's difficult to complete challenges without boosting.
I'd gladly take the benefits of a more robust BF community with properly admin controlled servers and community servers that I could frequent and run into "friendly faces" on at the expense of some people boosting. Community servers are what keeps a game alive during times when new content releases are lacking. At least half the reason I played CSS for so long was because I knew I could jump in on one of my favorite servers and end up playing with a bunch of my friends who also frequented that server. And if a hacker joined, they were gone almost immediately if an admin was present. Or I'd just contact one of the admins on my friends list to deal with it.
The benefits to me far outweigh the cons of some people boosting or running into the occasional badmin.
