After the BF V release, I know there were problems with the platoon emblems.
But my personal avatar kept on working. That is, untill I changed it.
Now I have no more avatar that shows up in the highlights.
So are they gona forever? Did I miss anything?

    Yup, user created emblems are broken. I believe DICE has intentionally deactivated the custom emblem system.

    - DICE censors chat now using artificial intelligence
    - DICE removed user made emblems

    I suppose the next logical step from an Orwellian point of view, is to remove custom avatars next.

    The the custom avavtars already got removed. Mine worked just fine, untill I changed it after the V release. Now I have no more avatar in the highlights.
    I do have it when I look at my soldier profile or in-game in the right menu ( for friends ), but no longer in highlights.

    Don't change your emblem. It will break if you do and you won't be able to equip it anymore.

    My custom emblem still works, but I haven't changed it in a long time. If I did change it, then it will break and no long work. Just like JRMBelgiumTwitch is experiencing. Other people in this forum report the same issue.

    The custom emblem system is broken, and I don't expect DICE to fix it. Like I said, they've gone full Orwell. They've dropped support for custom emblems.

    They want you moving to BFV. Youre not making them money still on BF1.

    I bought it, but still play more Battlefield 1. On Twitch, it's Obvious how much the new title is disliked.
    At the release, on Twitch there were 20000+ viewers, while BF1 only had 650 viewers.
    And 3 days ago on Twitch, 764 viewers on Battlefield 1 and only 2100 on Battlefield V.
    So in little over a month time, the popularity went down over 90% while Battlefield 1 is having peaks again at the levels before BF V launch...

    It's the number of BF1 players of level 100 and above that I think is highly noticeable. These are long term players who haven't moved rather than new players who picked the game up mega cheap.

    I found there were no custom emblems in BF5 (they don't show up - just blank), but the companion website can still be used to set custom emblems like always (and they still show in BF1).

    Oh! The avatars. Yes, they got removed because too many immature twonks were just using bitmaps of porn.

    To be honest, if it wasn't porn it was anime gurls or such. I much prefer the emblems. At least those are somewhat restricted and tend to be more 'normal'.

    How are they removed? I still see people using them. So if they are removed, why not for everyone?

    Where are you seeing people using them? I haven't seen an avatar in game in months. There are some quite sophisticated emblems, but not Origin avatars like there used to be.

    So the bug happened with the last update bf1 got I assume and since then if you change your emblem, it will no longer show.
