Summarize your bug there is a new bug since the last patch (27sep18) on ALL pc servers - probably also on all ps4 and xb1 servers : the skill based squad balancer that normally gets triggered between 2 rounds is inactive since the patch. 6 months ago we had the same problem and back then the patched mid-round balancer deactivated the skill balancer. And 27se18 the mid-round balancer was patched so probably that again is the cause of the - much more important - skill based squad balancer not working anymore. 6 months ago after 3 days dice deactivated the mid-round balancer on all servers till they patched that mid-round balancer a month later, because when that 1 is deactivated the skill based balancer immediately and automatically works again and now it will be the same. So deactivate the mid-round balancer for now … till there is a patch that makes both work together again like before the 27sep18 patch. p.s. a quote out of the 27sep18 patch notes : "Fixed an issue where the mid-round team balancer wasn’t aware of players from pre-round." and I am 99% sure that is now causing the current problems.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? EDIT: SEE BELOW COMMENT NUMBER 4 (#5) IT SEEMS TO GET TRIGGERED IN THE 1ST ROUND. Just stay at the end of a round on a server and then at the start of the next round you see that the white text given by the skill based squad balancer : ""your squad has been assigned to team x based on skill"" IS GONE
What happens when the bug occurs? stacked teams , multiple good squads stay on the same team after a round
Please select your region Europe
In what game mode did the bug occur? Conquest
AMD or Nvidia Model Number
Enter RAM memory size in GB

Good spot! I have never noticed it was gone until you pointed it out. Maybe the feature was disabled after complaints from the players but i guess we will have to find someone who could answer this question for us.
mmm weird today 16nov18 on my 24/7 Zeebrugge server the skill based balancer works together with the mid-round balancer but on my st quentin server only the mid-round balancer works https://battlefieldtracker.com/bf1/servers?platform=pc&name=evdg so it is NOT always the case that the skill based balancer is deactivated by the mid-round balancer. So maybe it isn't like 5 months ago where the mid-round balancer disabled the skill based balancer. 27sep18 the patch changed something in the mid-round balancer > https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/159285/battlefield-1-autumn-update#latest : "Fixed an issue where the mid-round team balancer wasn’t aware of players from pre-round."
I also made a reddit topic on this issue https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_live/comments/9tj531/no_october_patch_then_at_least_disable_the... no 2 topics > https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_live/comments/9ozw2x/on_all_pc_servers_the_after_round_skill_ba...
It seems the bug starts in the 1st round of the day and then never stops till the server becomes empty (also the other way around, when it has a good start where both balancer work then it stays working every round the rest if the day on that server) : https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_live/comments/9ybdus/battlefield_1_pc_i_found_something_out_abo... > with that knowledge I tried to go to "server admin" > actions tab : restart round, in 1 of my full servers this morning but it didn't fix the issue. I hoped it would activate the skill based squad balancer but it did not.
On 7 December 2018 the mid-round balancer has been deactivated on all pc servers and it had the opposite effect. In may 2018 that solved it for the more important skill based squad balancer, it became fully functional and maybe they thought it would be the same again. But it had the opposite effect now it never works. I made this topic on it https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_live/comments/a55m9w/pc_bf1_yeah_it_still_exists_on_all_servers... So now it is from bad to worse.
14narch 2019 there was server maintenance it fixed this 2 balamcers being bugged problem on irish pc servers but my german server still has the problems. I made a topic here https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_live/comments/b8ziba/bf1_pc_14_march_2019_there_was_a_server/ it has been 6 months now. FIX IT. The majority of European servers are german. COPY PASTE the settings of the irish servers to the german servers.
