    @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.

    I'm really hoping there will be servers available for rent in regions where no servers were previously available.

    Hi Jeff,

    When RSP goes live will we finally have an answer as to where these servers will be located?

    This is the million dollar question that has been left unanswered so far....

    But what about servers for Africa region and SEA servers?

    Seriously its like a huge part of the player base is just being freaking ignored.

    We all payed the same amount of money in the end lol... its a simple yes / no so we can possibly get refunds etc, its been over a month of asking the same simple question

    I'm working on getting that answer for you. However, spamming me on Twitter or repeatedly posting in the thread - I can only give information that I have authorization to release. I don't have anything yet, but I can assure you this is a TOP priority with, not just the team, but various teams within EA. When I do have something to share - hopefully very soon - I'll share it.

    Will there be kick/ban on launch? Without that, you will find many clans will not even consider renting a server. If we can't protect members against hackers/racists/trolls/ragers, what's the point of spending the money?

    We've already stated about 4 weeks ago that kick/ban is something the Dev team are working to bring in after launch.

    Great news that servers will finally be available to obtain, disappointed on the lack of info regarding servers, or to what kind of model the team are hoping for.
    which leads me to my question, as a non BF1 owner I may still have to acquire a server for our community, now as i will not own the game and will be locked out of posting on bf1 forums, will i have to go to the EA site to ask any server related questions? or will owners have access to a section in the BF1 forums ?

    All of our questions we'll be able to answer ourselves soon enough.

    When are you releasing the server rental program?? I am getting sick of playing soft core, and my gaming community is tired of playing BF1 with current config. Theres nothing more frustrating than shooting someone 3 times in the back only to have them turn around and 1 shot kill you with a shotgun.

    Thank you! Was it so difficult to just say this after so many weeks of us hounding you? So it is not NO for servers for Africa/South Africa, but a MAYBE...

    I seriously hope that you are not just stringing us along. A large part of the South African gaming crowd have not purchased the game yet, as they are waiting for finality on whether we are getting local servers or not.

    So no African servers!!!!!

    No wonder they didn't want to confirm anything! I bet they won't even talk to us about this. We just get **** again, just like when they hiked our game prices because of things other people did. And soon we won't even be able to post here.

    @Braddock512 Will you even respond to this?

    Can't we do something legal about this? I mean how is this not discrimination?

    There was a response from Brad... We just need to be a little more patient now I guess
