    So where are the answers?
    Did @Braddock512 mean Monday, January 2, 2017?

    I would like answers very soon, as that would affect my decision on whether or not to buy BF1.

    Big answers such as server locations, release date, release date for kick is ban, API tools? Or "big" as in you can change that map of your server and you can use credit or debit to pay for the server?

    Braddock's on central time so if answers are going to happen today, they'll probably be in the next couple hours. Who knows, maybe they'll switch up from playing at being Valve to playing at being Apple and tell us servers are rentable tomorrow. Wouldn't hold my breath though.

    Very much doubted.
    Is there going to be Kick/Ban a simple yes or no would suffice as seeing hundreds have left BF1 so far because of no answers
    If Kick/Ban is not included I'm afraid most will leave

    Will "Aim Rotation Off" be a setting for consoles?

    Yep another day, don't see an update happening today. The big "patch" is happening in 17 hours so I imagine the "Big update" braddock was talking about will be around the same time or afterward. I would say they will also release a date for RSP at the same time. Correct me if I am wrong @Braddock512.

    -Braddock512-

    Monday has come and gone and nothing. Why am I not surprised? At least communicate with your loyal community and say SOMETHING...

    When can we expect answers Braddock?

    My guess will be in the next 3 hours which is when patch will be live.

    I am sure @Braddock512 does have other responsibilities and I am sure we will get some answers soon. Not sure if we will all get the answers we want... but lets give them the benefit of the doubt for now. Even if we have been waiting for so long as it is...

    Lets all stay strong and fight for wat we want! Insulting or saying you will leave BF, will not do anything but weaken our community, but staying strong together will!
    We want the servers and need this and want to fight for our right!

    Relationship management 101 - when you say you are going to do something, do it. Or if, you really cannot, due to circumstances outside of your control, contact the customer and update them, at the very least, at the time that you undertook to do so (but preferably before then). It's all about managing expectations.

    So..

    Update is live. Where the patch notes?

    Any news on the Rent A Server and their locations?

    The update is STILL rolling out. Patch notes only go on once it is totally rolled out and confirmed then the notes go on. It's in case it fails has to be rolled back etc

    Thanks! Any news on whether certain areas will have their own local servers? Like SEA and South Africa? Or more specifically, will we be able to rent a server that is located in SA?

    Honest answer - I don't know I'm afraid.

    Only a guess but once the updates have completed both client and server side

    According to patch notes:

    "-Two new tabs have been added to the store: RSP and Battlepacks
    -You can rent a server via the RSP tab"

    But apparently RSP still not active - when will this be available ?

    @SteadyFlow They'll be available to rent shortly. Just ensuring the game update is solid. Will announce when I get confirmation from DICE that RSP is live. It is scheduled for today.
