Yay EA can't count.

Is it me or am I not the only one who notices a 53/64 server count actually means 3 players? WHAT am I doing wrong? Or... is it EA?

    Seeding plugins, You are seeing large player numbers on servers but in reality there are only x players physically connected.

    Use betterbattlelog plugin where it shows the TRUE playercounts in order to weed out the servers running the seeding plugin.

    Cool! That works... thanks! Too bad most servers are graveyards these days.

    Favorite servers, help them by idling in the server for a few minutes till more join. Usually goes quickly when there are 3 or more in.

    lol... and today BBL is mis-reporting the number of people in servers. So.... that was a one day fix. Sigh

    Seems to work for me. If the it keeps bugging out for you try to empty your browser history and cache, then reinstall the plugin again with the steps Russao posted.

    Yep, clearing the cache and reinstalling the plug-in did nothing to change it. BBL is showing full servers but logging in, no one on it. I even reinstalled the browser to no effect. I think EA just doesn't care.

    This is evidently intentionnal, it's the servers using fake guids to fill in the blanks, this has been a practice since 2 months after the release, owners of servers have always been cheaters/hackers and it's not going to change, when you call the **** out you get sent false positives and get banned. I'd advise you don't do what I do.

    Does this issue not affect console? Is it for PC only?

    Just went to see if any servers were going on this morning and ran into this issue. Someone said this was happening 2 months after release, but I've played it since beta and this is the first time I've ever ran into it. I haven't played it for a while. Tried 3 servers that all said 50-some/64 and none had more than 4 people on it, so didn't bother looking after that.

    A DICE engineer tried to fix the problem. He failed. At least twice he tried and failed. Maybe three times. He's probably not done trying.

    There's a Chrome extension that fixes the player count to the correct number.  You have to click on servers one at a time to get the correct count, but it works.
