Unprecedented demand created teething problems
DICE is claiming that they have turned the corner on the online and server issues that have caused some issues since Battlefield 3 was released. Server capacity and demand has stayed at a steady 95% and continues to climb, despite the addition of new servers.
While the developer and publisher admit that the unprecedented demand caused some issues, they now believe that things are on the right track and players experienced server stability this past weekend, despite the high utilization.
DICE has teams that continue to monitor the servers and online game play for potential issues and address problems as they arise. DICE claims that they will not rest till things are 100%.
