    After all these years of playing BF games I can exactly tell how the round is going to play rigth after the map loaded and I had a chance to see the teams. So no, it won't make any difference at all.

    It's a great idea and they should definitely bring team switching back.
    I always play with a mate and we join on each other but every now and then it will put us on opposite sides when a new round starts.. so broken

    They should at least bring back the ability to switch to the team with a player deficit. Especially considering how bad of a job the start-of-round match maker does populating servers after a mass exodus. MM will often end up joining new players to the team that already has 10+ more players. This creates a perpetual quit cycle that can take numerous rounds to recover from, or somtimes even empty the servers.
    .
    In prior titles (usually on community run servers), we would often switch to the team which had less players in order to even out the teams at the start of round. Of course, those were in communities with a sense of fairness and good sportmanship. So, that might not be as effective on DICE's public servers.

    You can change teams if there's a spot open and know somebody on other team.  Just join a party chat and have them invite ya.  I got moved over early in a match.  This works for XBOX1.

    It's actually easier than that on Xbox as you just click through the scoreboard until you find someone in a squad with space, then select the join game option. No idea why this works on Xbox but not PC or Playstation.

    We need better team balancing, i've been joining a lot more one sided games where the attackers outnumber the defenders 2:1,  i really don't understand why it's taking them that long to implement a balancer

    Rush was like that yesterday.  Almost a 10 player difference.

    Noticed that too. Breakthrough has been beginning a lot of rounds like that too.

    You should be able to switch depending on player count, pre-match only!

    There are some good reasons why (or at least when) to disallow team-switching, but I have a suspicion it might have been instituted for political reasons regarding the Axis faction. Either way, it's definitely a problem to disallow team-switching to weaker teams, especially with how broken team-balancing is right now.
