    If EA won't host servers in certain areas, at least allow 3rd party providers in those areas to do it. MWEB is a massive ISP in South Africa with more than enough resources to do the honours here. You just need to let them and you will have MANY happy customers!

    ticket count
    bullet damage
    modes
    weapons
    maps

    Latest news? This is a slap in the face to people. The most asked questions simply get ignored yet again. We literally only need to know 2 things.

    1) In which regions will there be servers available and 2) will there be a ping kicker??

    @HIVE-Flanker A delaying tactic would be me not coming to this thread and let it fester with negativity. I'm here, posting what I'm approved to share, and taking a lot of the heat. That's my job. (I'm not complaining, it IS my job.) More importantly, it's my passion because I care about getting information into your hands.

    And don't give me the ridiculous argument that people will play out-of-region even if they have populated local servers.

    There is no argument, it's a fact:
    https://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/en/forum/threadview/2955065239077547697/793/

    Umm this incoherent thread is for BF4 Console platform where the 3'rd party server community isn't as strong as it is on PC. Also, consoles have only bar-indicators for ping and not actually ping values , where each bar can indicate a huge variance in ping value, hence they never really know how good of a connection they have !

    While I'm sure this problem occurs once in a while, it cannot be a rampant issue.

    It's absolutely rampant. I know this doesn't support your argument and I doubt have what it takes to admit you're mistaken so I won't bother with you.
    But hey in case I'm wrong we'll start with something small. Console has numerical ping to servers on BF4.

    So we need both local servers AND high-ping ban feature.

    Well turns out I had you wrong. Apparently you're the rare type. My apologies. I guess I'm getting bitter.

    Yep, both would be good.

    Well I personally can't understand why anyone would play in an out of region server. I always suck playing high ping when others have less ping, getting shot around corners and having a crappy experience overall.

    So, let's make one thing VERY clear -

    You are expected to abide by the EA Terms of Service and Forum Rules. Should you go afoul of them, you WILL be suspended from this forum.
    The abusive posts, insults, etc. will stop immediately. Any further posts like that will result in a week ban. You can review the forum rules and EA TOS before posting to understand this has been part of the Code of Conduct for Battlefield Forums for the last 5 years.
    Your frustration, while understandable, does not excuse you from following the rules.

    Honestly, I post what info I get. The bigger questions are taking a bit longer to answer, but I hope to have some details later today or Tuesday at the latest.
    Thanks again for your patience. I know this is difficult.

    Earlier this week you posted that you would have answers on the massive list of questions that are there today (Friday) and even reminded people that you was on Central time and not to bug you with when is this info coming out.

    I have refrained from posting here, as I said to you in the private message about the utter mess of having to read through all the meaningless posts that are done and having the list put up that would be edited with the answers which you did.

    But coming here looking at your posts saying this and that is being done and you will have answers in this time etc is getting tiring now as NO ANSWERS being updated just isn't what people want. You constantly keep saying that answers will be out on this day or that day and then extend when things are going to happen.

    I like many people would probably rather see 10 answers from the hundreds there that have been confirmed just so we can see something is being done, at the moment it looks like nothing is being done or our concerns etc are not being addressed.

    I speak plainly and with absolute truth to you all. As much as I can share, I do. One note: I have an email out, trying to get fast approval, to update AGAIN today.
    Answers to some of the bigger questions. Just got an update from the Dev team about it. (I really hope it goes through all the approvals today. Would really like to let you have that info.)

    -Braddock512-

    As per my last post, doing something and saying it are 2 entirely different things.

    Its all meaningless words unless something is done, this thread and topic have been going on since Pre Beta and more so since yet no one has pushed hard enough to get info out to the masses.

    And as for the delaying tactic comment, it don't matter if you come in here or not making posts, all you see in 30 pages of comments most the time are festering comments of negativity because there is a total lack of understanding on what true customer service is!!!!

    That thread is totally different to what the thread about the list of questions is about.

    A sticky thread to all the 200+ questions was put up to what answers would be given to the relevant question. That thread would then be edited with the answers to the relevant questions.

    Having that makes it easier to correlate the Q and A rather than answers put elsewhere not being able to tie up the answer to a question

    @!NWG_Feclez Good point. I'm actually working with one of the Devs (I copied the questions over to have him answer in-line) to get that exact format.

    Braddock, the info we really need is kick/ban -- when will it be coming?

    Many clans will not rent a server unless they can kick hackers/trolls/racists/porn emblems etc. A date on when that might be rolled out is what we need to know.

    Our clan has well over 200+ Battlefield players. We want to rent multiple servers. We can't do so until we know we can provide a hacker/troll/racist free environment for our players.

    Ditto on kick/ban - for exactly the same reasons. We run polite and friendly servers (4 currently including 2 BF4 servers) and are waiting with bated breath for this info. We dropped the Call of Duty franchise after Black Ops because we lost the ability to run dedicated servers that we could police. A dedicated server that we cannot maintain a FUN gaming environment on is less than worthless. Not to mention being able to hold boot camps and inter clan matches. We love the DICE remote server administration protocol and expected it to continue into the future - please don't let us down.

    If it is against forums rules I apologize. This is on topic- Angry Joe did a good segment on this awesome game and added in his questions and thoughts on RSP. Starting around 10:40

    No I believe he saw the most recent post, laughed, and then wanted to know when we would actually get answers to the 99.9% of questions that remain unanswered. I am with him. I am dumbfounded why this information isn't available. The only 2 possible explanations are that the server code is FAR from done for a game that is already released (which is very sad) or we have almost no control and they just don't want to tell us. Either situation is very bad.

    player count shouldnt be included in custom server setings, the default values offer the best experience.
