    From his comments, it was 'a bug not a feature' that unofficial servers were getting QM traffic. They probably squashed the bug.

    I find it hard to believe that they never intended for our rented servers (even with standard, non-custom settings) to get QM traffic. QM traffic to DICE Official servers only seems a bit selfish. Are we sure Striterax didn't just mistakenly say Official instead of "non-Custom" or "default setttings" server or something like that? Maybe in his tweet, he was meaning for "Official" to suggest default settings instead of it suggesting "DICE Official" servers?

    No, he did not mis-speak.

    Read my post again, Custom Games and RSP servers are supposed to have their own matchmaking options. Not to be confused with the regular quickmatch options.

    Hmmm! If he did indeed mean exactly as he said, then I really can't see any way we're going to populate our servers at least not regularly. My guys in TeamSpeak right now are suggesting that I also do a refund on our rented server(s).

    Well refunded 3 servers that had 180 days today. We figure if enough people cancel, they will listen. After all, you can always get them again. And right now there effectively unusable.

    Personally, I'll give it til the beginning of next week, see if anything changes. If it's the same, then I will go ahead with the refund process. I gotta go find where I can read into the policies of a refund on these servers. Hopefully it won't be too late by then to go through with it.

    Was pretty easy. I went to the EA site and just talked to live support. The support guy did not even give me a hard time. I said the quick match changed so we can no longer populate the servers and I wanted a refund. His response was something along the line of, you're not the first one, give me 5 min to process.

    Well, I hadn't seen this post of @Striterax from that other thread in this RSP sub-forum until just now...

    I just want to clarify the other issue you quoted me on and are reffering to.

    There was another bug that we found that allowed ANY Custom Game to be part of the regular quickmatch, you can imagine the kind of issues this created.

    Not to good so, So we disabled it.

    A side effect was that Vanilla RSP servers was removed as well (not intended) so we are working on adressing that. The proper fix might take some time to implement, but I hope we can get there soon! Its on our high prio list.

    I will try to visit the forums more often and make it part of my daily work routines, I hope that helps with communication.

    On a side-note - I loved the Elder Gamers servers on previous Battlefields!

    So, removing vanilla RSP servers from being Quickmatch capable actually was unintentional after all. It was just a side effect of them fixing the system to not include any Custom servers in QM capabilities (because apparently that was happening?). Perhaps now I won't refund the servers and will just wait until they fix this issue. This makes me feel much better.

    I do, however, wish there were some way I could easily bring the attention of my Custom "24/7 Argonne Forest, 2,000 tickets, no explosive" server to the masses of players out there. But that's a different matter in which I believe we're discussing in other threads.

    Unless you vote with your wallets, change will always be "soon" and "high on EA's prio list".

    Day 4 of me not playing BF1. After 50 hours this game has become one dimensional and boring. Unless there are major changes made to the RSP in the next 3 to 4 weeks max, it will be RIP BF1 for me.

    It does not make me feel better, they made a mistake and have a MAJOR bug thats crippling all our RSP servers...
    And the solution from DICE/EA to this MAJOR fault is " The proper fix might take some time to implement"

    Come on , we all love this game, but how they do things is realy not good!

    This is so **** up, its unbelievable. Let people pay for a server and then remove everything so they can fill it. This could have been the best BF ever cause
    its really an amazing game. But the server rental politics is a pure joke, the people who did this for sure never played any BF game or are familiar with the BF PC Community. Shame. *rings the bell* Shame.*rings the bell*.... ^^

    Don't worry. It will take some time for the fix, but it will come soon. You just have to wait a bit more with your empty servers.

    Worked for 3 days straight… now it's broken. Canceled our server and got the refund. At least their Support knows how bad they **** up and don't give you a hard time.

    During the purchase on the server it did say that this purchase is "not eligible" under EA's Game Guarantee program. But having said that, it wasn't to difficult. They asked me why, and i told them it's because my server has never appeared on the browser without searching it by name, and after Tuesday's maintenance i no longer receive QM players..

    Same issue on our DADS clan server (Europe) yesterday. Only two non DAD people joined and they had either explicitly search for 'swe' (=swedish) server or they joined on us as Origin friends.

    "A side effect was that Vanilla RSP servers was removed as well (not intended) so we are working on addressing that."


    So now we wait until our Vanilla servers get QM back... Who wants to take bets on how long this could take?

    Maybe they want to do a few weeks of "questions" first! They must solve this asap, this is not workable!

    All I know is this has got to be fixed within the next couple days. This is a HUGE problem.
