    20K seems high, i'm guessing half that.

    There's no official numbers for PC. You will just see people guessing.

    I have zero issues finding full servers in the US. Some are half full of high ping players (150-250), so there may be issues in other regions.

    Those people could also easily be people from rural areas in the US (satellite internet etc.) and people from other parts of the world playing in squads with friends in the US.

    Player count is double super secret.
    To me, suggests surprisingly low. And, just checked BattlefieldTracker for BF1 & BFV player counts, only find they have stopped. No update for last 30 days.

    My error, should say BF1 & BF4 player counts. BFV player counts have NEVER been provided.

    Yeah I notice DICE has stopped providing player count numbers for BF1 and BF4. They probably consider that information a trade secret now.

    It's still possible to count how many people are playing BFV. Simply use the server browser to filter populated servers by region and game mode. Then count how many servers there are and multiply it by 64 for 64 player servers.

    This way you don't exceed the server browser's 100 server list limit.

    EA stopped player count when DICE dropped SWBF2. 
    Something about player count was considered to be best kept secret against the competition.
    I think it is mostly bullcrap, but it is unusual to convince a Excel knight otherwise when hes mind is set.

    There is enough EU players. Full servers all the time. That is good enough for me :smile:

    It is for you , but i wonder if it is for EA. The game relies on a Live service model, less players less money.

    Hahah what a joke , much like the new patch. 
    "Join the game that might have sold some million copies but was played with less then 50 K players / Day on a specific platform already a month after release, and are dwindling in numbers every day since that except a couple of days after releasing a new maps or major patch"

    Well the  5.2 patch  has seen the lowest weekend server count here in Australia since the Pacific launched.   Not a good sign going into the holiday period.
