EA, Its about time you stop controlling the servers, open up the servers to public so we can join in on our friends without waiting to find a server that will allow 4 in a squad to get in!! The wait sucks to say the least. Do the right thing EA. Thanks. Does EA really read the forums hear?

    I'm interested in hearing the logic behind why you think public servers would make it easier for squads of 4 to join servers compared to creating a party and then using the quick join feature as you can right now.

    I think he's referring to rentable server's. Which we need in such a bad way. To me this should of came out when the game launched but hey EA and Dice know best right...

    Most of the time the quick join does not work if you are in a 4 man squad and the game is trying to find EA server with 4 slots open. If I had a rented server, that problem would no longer exist !!!

    Are you serious?

    DICE's quick join algorithm wants to keep all servers full. When you try to join a server with 4 , one, maybe two of you will get in. Then the others have to wait. If a 5th or 6th player wants to play with you, they can "join on server" but may or may not land on your side. If they don't, they can't switch.

    In BF4, you could join a server that was starting to populate, but that nearly impossible now as most servers will only have a few spot open because of the algorithm.

    Clan servers would probably at least allow team switching so all your friends can be on one side.

    I've also seen it throw us in an empty server on more than one occasion. It can take 15-20 minutes to get all your friends on one server. Very frustrating.

    Whole system is a royal mess.

    Add this to the list of why BF V sales are bad.

    Well said, very well said. After this, I will most likely never buy another EA Game, and to the point, they (EA) will never post to this thread, another reason I wont buy another game, they really don't care as long as they get money, but no more of mine!!

    If I had a nickel for every time somebody said this I'd be able to fix all these problems.

    If Dice adds RSP, they must give us an option to bypass them in Quick Play, and filter out private servers from the server browser.

    I would think quick play would automatically be limited to DICE servers.
