    I was thinking about the same thing, if thats the case then they lost another customer.

    How to win friends and influence people? Something EA have forgotten. Definitely won't be buying another BF game after this. What a crock of...............

    Can't really understand how they can justify this if the servers were full on a daily basis, what's going on.?

    yep same here. Always pick a uk server as the latency delta is noticealble. Hard to believe the concurrency in DE is significantly more than UK. 

    They're probably aware of it but we should hit them with tickets in case they're not.

    Out of interest, what is the average ping for you guys in the UK when playing on german servers (assuming you have high bandwith)?

    27/28 for me which is obviously not bad and plenty of people play on worse.

    So it seems this has just been yet another backward step for the series and with no announcement or reasons given. Very disappointing and does not inspire confidence going forward.

    Server availability is directly related to local player population as well as game mode since BF5 uses the SWBF server system where servers spin up as needed as oppossed to the traditional BF server system where they're always up and running.

    That cant be right. UK servers vanished yesterday. Always had at least 20 Uk servers populated on DOM during peak time. If EA shut them down then i am deleting this game, I have 0 interest in playing German servers as its always full of cancerous high pingers and out of regions.
    EA doesn't shut them down, AWS shuts down empty servers and spins them back up when players are present just like Battlefront. I personally don't like that system for Battlefield but it's the system we have.

    There is something going on. The server browser wasn't working for me yesterday for a while, which seems to have been the beginning of this, it isn't like the servers just dwindled away.

    Grind doesn't seem to be on the server browser either, there could be some connection.

    If AWS shuts down empty servers then how do we get them  populated again, i dont understand. ?
    A couple of days ago we had plenty of full UK servers which suddenly then disappeared overnight it doesnt make sense to me.
