From what I can see all the 'full' servers have spoofed player number. Also about 75% of the time I attempt to join a server I get "kicked by punkbuster" with no other context.

    The PC's Battlefield 4 is now officially dead!

    Because Battlelog has a very serious design flaw, It can easily make the server the attacker can launch a variety of attacks.

    [Join Server] button, Ability to easily use fake player attacks, Ability to easily use fake player attack tools to launch attacks, You can only see fake players forever.

    Unless you can only install Better Battlelog (BBLog)

    There are Chinese criminals in Asia, launching large-scale DDoS attacks on Asia servers every day, Asia, which has the largest number of players in the world, has less than 600 players left.

    I have to tell you that this game is really dead.

    'On PC'* I imagine console versions are still alive because they use Sony and Microsofts online management and not EA's trash. That is one thing I will give console platforms is they can bypass the specific problem of crappy devs letting/killing games.

    BF4 is not dead; those servers are artificially inflating their player numbers for some reason
    Install BetterBattlelog if you use PC and it forces the server to report the real player count

    There are still games to be had but I guess it depends where in the world you are.

    I can tell you very clearly, This game in Asia is close to death.

    Because there is no way to assist foreign victim companies in providing legal assistance in China, Plus this game is illegal in China game.

    Therefore, such DDoS attacks are legal for the Chinese government, Even if Chinese players know who is suspicious, no one dares to report it to the police, because no one wants to report the crime, but is accused of crime by the government.

    But for players in other country, This is still unfair because the so-called Asia does not represent China’s sovereignty over Asia, For the rental server, it is also the commercial freedom of players in each country.

    The key problem, Still in the webpage code, just use the right mouse button and select [View Source Code] to find the server information, Plus the simplification of the DDoS attack tool, It’s too easy to launch a DDoS attack.

    You have to think in this matter, The server provider is unable to do any precautions, Because they have provided the best protection possible, Like a reverse lookup IP address.

    Under default, no one knows the server's IP address and Port information, But Battlelog is fully available and used by Chinese criminals.

    You can imagine, in the last year, every day, more than 5,000 players online, More than 350 servers in Asia, But now there are no more than 800 online players every day. (Even worse)

    No more than 50 servers of all sizes in Asia.

    I think it is already near death, Because more than half of the players in Asia are special edition standard players.

    Also for this reason we can't play DLC maps, Not because we don’t have it, but because many players don’t own it.

    Do you think this game is alive in Asia? I don't think so

    I'm in Australia. If any game is alive here then it is alive everywhere else; this rule has never failed me.
    Asia has far more BC4 players on PC than Australia (we don't come close) and I've played on Asia based servers with no issue.

    But you should not be able to deny what happened to the Asia server in July last year.

    What kind of environment do you think of Asia today? Is our number of players enough?

    Are the remaining servers all setting DLC maps? No! We have nothing, We only have standard players worth $99. (New Taiwan dollar, Can buy a burger price)

    We are waiting to die!

    "Can buy a burger price"; catch-phrase, tombstone epitaph, famous last words; that could be anything but I love it

    Asia doing better than Australia; please enjoy BF4 while you can, when it finally dies you'll miss it despite the issues.

    You don't understand the meaning of this sentence at all.

    For Asian players, The value of this game is very low, even the importance of the game is the same.

    When Asia players are disconnected by intensive DDoS attacks, How many players do you think are willing to stay in this game?

    This is what happened just now.

    Yesterday and today my server was again attacked by Chinese criminals.

    Of course, this guy also has a lot of attacks on the Asian server, More importantly, this guy said that every time I started a DDoS attack.



    Use this political position to decide who can play the game, And can easily launch DDoS attack environment, Do you think this game is living in Asia?

    I am suffering every day, I want to do this, To commit suicide.

    Game is pretty strong on PS4. Counted 54 European servers at peak times and still about 10 full off peak. may not be all the DLC but still a far chuck of the game is still playable!

    We have a lot of experience in PC, We can't give up the Asia server because this criminal.

    Not to mention that we have our own servers in Asia, The servers of these two platforms are not shared.

    Are we going to give up such funds? This is unfair!

    Every time this offender launches a DDoS attack, he will definitely tell everyone that I am the real DDoS attacker.

    And through the PayPal and email information I left behind, This guy email scares me, Use Facebook to harass me.

    And intimidate my friends list of friends, This is China, a criminal who does not have any judicial justice!

    There is only one [Join Server] button, why should the entire Asian server suffer such damage?

    The game we are playing is called Battlefield 4, Not a DDoS attack game, Not even a political bullying game, Just because I am from Taiwan?

    We really need to solve this problem immediately.

    This is the situation of the Asia server a few hours ago.

    After 1 day, Large-scale DDoS attacks continue to occur, DDoS attackers from China continue to attack Asia servers, We are very helpless about this.

    As far as I am personally harassed and intimidated by the perpetrator, I don’t know when I can stick to it.

    For all intensive purposes it is. F2P indie games with no monetization manage to out rank bf4 in player count. Then ingame chat is nothing but complaining combined with admin bot. Battlefield 4 mine as well be all bots and nothing would be lost. Infact the game would be better because bots cant cheat its just a matter of how ai is designed.
