I came here to see if the last patch fixed matchmaking, looks like it’s worse, uninstalling. Waste of money 🤦🏻‍♂️

The First day firestorm was out it was fine. have that many ozzies really stopped playing already causing low population lobbys? Feels like they have wiped the Oceania servers already..If im lucky to even find a lobby its now always over 180+ ping 😭. Hopefully its sorted asap otherwise back to blackout..

Please feed the Oceania FS server hamsters kind sir's and madam's. Your loyal antipodean player base is getting restless!

I've been having this problem all the time, every single solo game I get matchmade into has 180+ ping. I'm really getting tired of it, firestorm is a really fun gamemode. I just wish I could play it!

Are there any estimates when this issue might be fixed or how long it might take to address?

I've given up on it ;(
Back to playing other first person shooters, COD4 Remastered was free on PSN last month. A real shame that a free title brings more joy than a multi-million dollar project created by the highest earning developers.

i'm not even allowed to play firestorm, apparently i didn't spend enough money with dice to unlock it. wasted over 5 hours trying to give dice the benefit of the doubt and i feel so scammed right now. where do i even go to get this fixed?? surely the game is broken, it should NOT take 6 hours to get 24 seconds of play time in, absolutely disgusting, i hope you people at dice are all ashamed of what you have done

BE ADVISED: Australian and South American #BattlefieldV #Firestorm players - we’ve adjusted some settings for matchmaking in your regions so you should be more able to matchmake in your region with better ping.

Seems like a region lock. Matching with AU/NZ sqaud mates, then long wait times. But doesn't matchmake out of region.

Great. Now you gotta get the players to come back. Good luck.
