we all know we are having this problem for month now. some weeks it was nearly solved but since some days, we have nearly each day this kind of problem.

all players are getting a disconnetion and if you will join again, the server is not listed in battlelog anymore. but we can see the server still running in our server console so it is NOT crashed. its still a EA issue what results in this problem.

yesterday i opend again a ticket to our hoster and asked if they have any solution for the problem and this ist the answer.

Hallo,

daran können wir leider nichts ändern. Das ist ein Problem zwischen dem EA-Masterserver und Punkbuster. Wenn Punkbuster die Verbindung zu diesem verliert, werden die Spieler vom Server gekickt.
Nach ein paar Minuten erscheint der Server dann auch wieder im Battlelog. Sollte das nicht der Fall sein, kann man den Server über das Webinterface. Das beschleunigt die Sache etwas. Sollte auch das nicht bringen, hat der Masterserver ein Problem. Da hilft dann nur warten.

mit freundlichen Grüßen

Laut Procon ist der Server aber immer noch da und läuft. Nur er ist nicht mehr in Battlelog gelistet und dort dann erst wieder nach einiger Zeit ( 20-30 Minuten ) aufgelistet.
Auch ein Restart bringt nix, der Server erscheint dann trotzdem erst nach einiger Zeit wieder im Battlelog.

Kann man da irgendwas in den Logs erkennen woran das liegen könnte? So ist das aktuell kaum mehr spielbar da der Server Schwierigkeiten bekommt genug Spieler zu erhalten.

Bitte um Info hierzu.

i will translate the importend part:

they can´t do anything against this problem because its still a issue between the EA masterserver and punkbuster. punkbuster is loosing the connection to the masterserver and with that, all players getting a disconnection. with that the server also disapeared in battlelog. after some minutes it will be relisted.

you can see also that it is a EA issue when you compared the EA issue report on this site:
EA aktuelle Störungen und Probleme | Alle Störungen
there will be also a issue spike in this graph when we have the problems.

so thanks to EA that we can do nothing against this....

other problem is, that we try to get the server back into battllelog, we serveradmins mostly doing a server hard reset. this means the server also lost some of the balancer setup because its starting in the basic settings again. so the balancer is not running in the mode our server is running normaly and player get belanced in a unnormal way.

i know its annoying but we can´t be there at any time to resetup all settings. normaly some of us have a look at this and doing the setup again so all is running in a normal way again.

EA - fuckheads, we're used to it ^^
I hope they WON'T make a new patch cuz they will only screw it even more, we won't be even able to connect to the server at all....nowadays you pay a fortune for games which aren't stable at all, back in the day we were able to play cracked games and had less issues than nowadays...sad

true but a patch will not help in this case. its more the server structure EA is running nowadays. its all running with rented / contracted serverclouds. you can read about this problems also in BF1, FIFA or Star Wars Battlegound.

just switched down the server to 48 player to see if there is any advantage against the connection losts....
If it's the master server from EA disconnecting from the punkbuster servers there should be no advantage - but hey a try it is worth off course
