After months of waiting, Battlefield 2042 It is now available to users who pre-ordered the Deluxe Editions or are members of the EA Play Pro service. Surprisingly, within hours of early access, there were already dozens of players who had a high level, something that attracted attention of the community.
Unsurprisingly, the people who leveled up quickly did so through very questionable practice, but one that the game itself allowed. Specifically, they turned to custom community servers that allowed them to easily farm experience with the help of bots, which had zero health and in most cases did not even have weapons.
This was made possible through the Battlefield Portal, the component of Battlefield 2042 that allows players to create their game modes with their own rules. For example, it is possible to see pure knife clashes, pure vehicle pitched battles, and even create an infected mode.
Unfortunately, the early community creations in Battlefield Portal, a component that clearly has a lot of creative potential, were limited to simple lobbies whose only function was to make it easier to gain experience to raise the overall player and weapon level.
Battlefield 2042 players will have to find new ways to farm experience
Of course, having thousands of players taking advantage of community servers to quickly level up has the potential to ruin the experience for other players. In addition, it causes the most popular creations on the Battlefield Portal to be servers that serve only that purpose.
In the past hour, we deployed a change to #Battlefield Portal that impacts the effectiveness of XP Farming Servers.

Fortunately, the developers took to social media to announce that they recently made a change to the Battlefield Portal that impacts the effectiveness of experience farming lobbies.
Of course, it is possible that this class of special servers still exist, but they will be much less common and effective. Hopefully this allows the community to create game modes that are really fun, original and worthwhile.
But tell us, what do you think of this situation? Let us read you in the comments.
Battlefield 2042 It will be available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 from November 19. You will find more information about this war shooter from Electronic Arts and DICE by clicking here.
