Following the Battlefield 1 launch, we will start rolling out a Rent-a-Server Program that will allow players to set up their own private and public Battlefield 1 servers, with control of different gameplay options to map rotations. Thanks to these customization options, youll be able to create games that suit the play style for you and your friends.

Starting close after launch, you will be able to rent a server through the in-game store of Battlefield 1. In the past, servers were handled by third-party companies now, EA is providing them directly. 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.

On a rented server, players will be able to customize gameplay aspects like server name, map rotation, game mode, various game play settings, and more. We might restrict number of game modes available at launch and gradually enable them based on feedback and other circumstances, but you can expect that well keep adding customization options and UI design throughout 2016.

Expect to hear more about it as we approach the release of the Rent-a-Server program. We cant wait to see you on the battlefield!



Personally, I was hoping against this but upon the launch of the rent-a-server program that EA will be hosting, I'm going to be renting a server for Fever members and guests alike. I look forward to seeing you all on the Battlefield.

Why were you against this? It actually sounds pretty neat, even tho it's from EA and not a.. let's say, stand-alone server.

Because the third party hosts such as fragnet and things of that sort have things like Procon (essentially an admin CP for the server) which throws up red flags for in-human aim(aimbot) and basically any suspicious activity, allowing the administrators to spectate and decide whether to ban the player from the server. EA will mostly not offer that sort of thing. Another thing is the vote map addon which allows the players in the game to choose which map to play next whether than going on a specific map rotation. It's just small things that EA will most likely not offer with their rent-a-server program.

Ah... so you mean, it'd be most likely on EA to take care of cheaters and the like? Maybe those details might still be up for discussion... I wonder if there's a forum thread on that. But knowing EA... :smile:

Exactly, we all know how EA's "Fairfight" and such works.
