ESB Battlefield 1 Council #3 – Creating the 12v12 Ruleset

General Information

The Battlefield 1 Rental Server Program launched a few weeks ago, and while a lot of key features/options are missing, we managed to successfully run 4 12v12 Conquest Test Cups, 1 on Xbox One and 3 on PlayStation 4.

Each of the test cups had different variations in the rules, designed to test various aspects of the game. This allowed teams to see and feel how different rules played out and form their own opinion (especially the teams who played 2 or more cups).

In this ESB Council we will be officially voting on any weapon/grenade/gadget bans and any vehicle restrictions that need to be put in place. Once the voting will be over, we will be constructing a first version of our official 12v12 Conquest ruleset which will be used in our events starting in January after the Christmas break.

Please remember that a new patch arrived on the 13th of December and that certain items have been buffed/nerfed since the last test cups. We therefore ask you all to test these items out before the council.

You may find the patch notes by clicking HERE.


The meeting will be held on Sunday December 18th at 1pm EST / 7pm CET. Below is a countdown leading to the meeting start.

This ESB Council is open to all competitive Xbox One and PlayStation 4 teams that have played in at least 1 of our 4 Conquest Test Cups on Battlefield 1. Each Team will be allowed 1 to send one fix representative to each council. This means 30+ teams are eligible to attend.

Established event organizers are also welcome to attend to join in on the conversation. Please contact @CodeName_Deus on twitter if you are interested in taking part.

The ESB Councils now happen over Discord (Download Link Here). You may join the server directly by clicking HERE.

Every team who wishes to attend must fill in and submit the form below. A confirmation email will be sent to you within 12 hours of signing-up. Sign-ups close 4 hours prior to the meeting start. (Teams who don’t sign-up will not be allowed to attend)

Please make sure that your name on Discord matches your provided Battlelog/PSN/XBL name when you join our server or you will not be moved to the correct channel for the meeting.

For this meeting 30 slots will be available for teams (15 for X1 and 15 for PS4), and we will give teams who have actively competed in our past events priority over completely new ones. Confirmation emails will be sent to each team applying once they are confirmed.

Sign-up Form

A reminder that team representatives represent their WHOLE team and not just themselves. We therefore ask representatives to discuss the council topics with their team mates before attending the council.

Due to the official voting that will occur in this ESB Council, as mentioned earlier, only teams who have participated in at least 1 of our BF1 12v12 Test Cups will be allowed to attend.

Confirmed Teams

Note: Teams who have participated in our first 5v5 Test Cup on Sunday December 11th will have priority.
