As in the maintenance log, we've deployed R7. The timing isn't great, but DICE wanted it done as soon as possible. I've made a quick change to the default server configs until I can do some further testing.
I've verified servers are starting and players are joining.
We aren't permitted to share the patch notes, but expect further improved stability and more reliability when setting "Normal" or "Hardcore" servers.
R7 Update Notes (Nov 6):
*Fixed two of the most common server crashes (All platforms)
Let us know if this patch improves server stability for you.
* The "admin.say" command should now work properly (PC)
* The "vars.preset" command should now work better in conjunction with other vars settings (PC) (It is now easier for server admins to set a server preset)
* Fixed a bug in the queue system regarding GUID (PC)
* Fixed various minor bugs
Heh, I did say that we weren't permitted to share the patch notes, not that DICE weren't permitted. (Thanks Pete)
dru, can't idle yet.
R7 not so smooth. servers have been laggy. 1 lagged that much it booted everyone and crashed.
thats my feedback on R7.
Extremely laggy on my 24/7 Paracel Storm. But no crashes yet.
Still getting massive lag spikes and few drop outs. Every time shangai is on we can almost count on the server crashing or half the players getting booted when the tower comes down
Yea can confirm its worse then ever, i played 1 map last night and between trying to run and getting put back to prone all map and then not being able to run at all i gave up.
I will wait till R8 to see if that fixes the issues.
(ohh and trying to shoot anything while lagging is a nightmare)
A quick look this morning does indicate that the lag is worse, and stability might be a bit worse as well.
yeah the -WARS- all maps server keeps crashing more than ever now. I also removed siege map totally to try and help stop the server from crashing .I will re add it once they fix it until then why have a map in rotation that is going to kill the server
