ESB Battlefield 1 Council #1 – Gearing up for Private Servers

General Information

Battlefield 1 launched a few weeks ago, and servers are now around the corner. While we don’t know the exact day, we know it’s coming in November, and therefore we have to get ready to kickstart the competitive scene on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

During this first post-launch Battlefield 1 Council, we will discussing a variety of topics so that we can tackle server launch prepared and ready to compete all together. We’ll also be picking your brains with any ideas you may have regarding game modes and team sizes for each one, as well as collecting feedback regarding weapon/class/gadget/vehicle balance. We would therefore like to invite all Xbox One and PlayStation 4 competitive teams to participate.

  • Which game modes and formats should be played?

The game has launched with 5 objective based game modes; Conquest, Domination, Operations, Rush, and War Pigeons. We will be hosting test cups for each once servers launch, however we would like to know which ones you currently prefer based on your public game experience and which formats you would prefer trying out to start off.

6v6 War Pigeons? 8v8 Rush? 10v10 Conquest? 5v5 Rush? Bring your ideas!

  • How do you feel about the current class/weapon balance?

While the game is relatively new, with enough playing time you may notice possible game breaking mechanics present in the game or unbalanced weapons/gadgets and vehicles. Please provide feedback with appropriate information from Symthic to back up your claims where possible.

Items such as Gas Grenades, Elite Classes and Behemoths are already going to be addressed during the meeting.

This is just a brief preview of some of the questions we will pick your brains with in order to initiate constructive discussions ahead of servers being released.
Come with your ideas and feedback about the game and let us know what you think should be tested out first as soon as the rental server program launches.


The meeting will be held on Sunday November 6th at 12pm EST / 6pm CET. Below is a countdown leading to the meeting start.
