Matchmaking has been an absolute nightmare. Can anyone from EA address this? I haven't been able to play Supremacy or Walker Assault for at least two weeks. I just got out of a Droid Run game that left my team short-handed (2 vs. 6) for more than a half of a dozen rounds. Seriously? Your matchmaking system can't even balance teams? Forget the matchmaking region manual selection... it doesn't work. Opening all of the recommended ports on my router doesn't work. All of your "solutions" do not work. Fix it... fix it now. Suck it up and admit you make a mistake with your matchmaking system and implement something browser-based (like BF4). Leave the server choice to the customer. That's what we want.

Thank you so much! Now I can play Walker Assault, Turning Point and Supremacy!

That helped a LOT. My internet connection is good, so I can play those matches normally!

Hi All

 

I'm having a similar issue. I have a sneaking suspicion that EA/Battlefront doesn't know where my IP belongs to. I'm not with one of the large Australian ISPs.

 

I have had similar "region detection" issues with Battlefield in the past.

 

My IP address is 103.224.53.###. Can someone in EA check that their region database includes this range, locality Adelaide SA, Australia.

It's not ok, still have terrible difficulties to find a game, servers are empty during the week and even in the week-end we can only play in the evening...
