    RSP with 24/7 active servers and active (good) admins may (I think it will) save this game.

    The NGz (discord community https://ngz.fps.net) will have at least one server, maybe more, depends on price and options available.

    Personally I can't wait for it.


    Again folks.. what they are proposing is... not... RSP.

    Thanks. I still pop in here and there.

    I really don't think EA thought this "Free Server" setup through. Or maybe there's a malicious side effect.

    They allow for free servers, then dump all the officials over time. Thus reducing their costs. If the community doesn't actively drive the servers the game dies. Could end up being a double edged sword.

    Unfortunately, agree, all too possible.

    I dont see this "every kid and his mom" as a problem because you can just start one yourself for free. So what if a kid bans you from a temporary free server? It is only going to last until it goes down due to player numbers. Just start one yourself.

    There will be so many servers at release date...Everybody will want their own server...I am wondering how long before some people just give up and play on someone else's server.

    John doe's will give it a whirl and find that it's pointless without a community backing. But still there will be enough of a server flood that EA/DICE could potentially start shutting down their official servers. Spinning up an instance isn't free to EA.

    1,000 players booting an instance is still 1,000 servers that costs EA money. I don't see EA eating one nickel of that cost.

    But they haven’t excluded that these “free” servers don’t come with some sort of in-game advertising have they? I suspect until they categorically deny in public that there will be no pushed advertising then I am going to assume whenever we start up a server we will see some sort of advertising for their products or affiliates or any other similar company that relates to gaming e.g Corsair or Logitech. They will be paying for their advertising space. That’s why they will be free.

    Again..... This is not RSP.....

    Only a handful of servers up at any given time anyway... 

    Give us REAL RSP.

    I did call it  :)   free auto servers so we can have access to the whole game.  Just pinged 23 odd servers for BF4 here in Australia, and those servers cost a bomb. Never more than 5 with players in them though.

    100 servers with 4 players each grinding company coin, well they do have combined arms so I'm ok with that.

    Seems like I get dropped out of a server at least once a night lately.  Last night I was having a blast on Hamada conquest with M28.  Then I loss squad leader then seconds later bam I was dashboarded and heard some weird noise in the speaker.  This for XBOX1.  Seems a regular thing now since that bad EA servers crash other weekend.

    I'm kinda curious as to what AWS regions are going to be available for these servers. I know they are auto chosen on creation based on ping, but are ALL AWS regions being used for the best choice?

    For example
    NA ( Ohio, Virginia, California, Oregon ) .... not just Ohio/Virginia
    EU ( London, Ireland, Frankfurt) ... not just Frankfurt
    etc...

    London and Ohio was shut down if that helps you out.

    Yeah I know which is why I'm curious about regional availability.
