Interested in renting a server for your clan? Well here’s some information you might want to know. EA has released some details regarding the server rentals in Battlefield 1.
According to the official Battlefield blog, EA will start rolling out a Rent-a-Server program that lets players set up their own private and public Battlefield 1 servers. Servers settings such as timers, map rotation, game modes, etc. can be configured manually.
EA believes that its own servers will be a superior choice to 3rd party servers and can provide a more consistent experience in both performance and troubleshooting. Prior to Battlefield 1, EA allowed third party companies to provide servers, but EA is now opting to handle its own server rentals.
“We think this will benefit you in several ways. First off, we will be able to secure the quality of the actual hardware. Since the servers come from the same provider, it will give everyone the same uniform experience. Furthermore, if you have questions or need help, you will be able to reach out to EA Support directly instead of third party support.”
Battlefield 4, one of the biggest titles in the Battlefield franchise, suffered from terrible network performance at launch. Detailed investigation revealed that inadequate server hardware was partly to blame. Hopefully, with EA controlling the hardware aspect this time around, players won’t have to suffer through the same nightmarish experience.
Battlefield 1 is slated to go live on October 21, 2016. If you haven’t pre-ordered, pick up your copy of Battlefield 1 here.
