While we got a ton of new content from yesterday’s big Battlefield 5 patch, it seems one unintended side effect of it is that players are getting a Battlefield 5 high ping issue. Fortunately, DICE is on the case!
Over on Twitter, Battlefield Community Manager Freeman posted that DICE is aware of the Battlefield 5 high ping issue, and that they’ve created a team dedicated to getting it solved.
Time for a Check in on this High Ping Issue! #Battlefield
Today we created a team dedicated to getting this issue solved, and it's jumped straight to the top of our Priority list. We dont want folks stuck with this for long and I'll be providing regular updates on this all week. https://t.co/1o35HWjBAV

Also of note, it’s also mentioned that this could be a display issue (meaning what players are seeing is wrong), a location issue or something else.
A good day today!
We have but one issue that we're actively tracking relating to Pings on Servers. The team are actively investigating – it may be a display issue, it may be a connection issue, it may be a location issue.
Either way, its on us and we have teams looking into it

Let’s hope this gets resolved soon. Once we know more details, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
Are you suffering through this now? From what I’ve played so far today, I did notice that my ping spiked to 90 on the in-game scoreboard, though I don’t think I noticed any significant performance issues, which leads me to believe that this could be a display thing.
