peak player count in the last 24h was 30k, so you can expect a decent chunk to be playing the premium maps. there's usually servers based on each DLC or sometimes all the DLC maps in one rotation, whether the game type or player count will be to your liking isn't guaranteed though.

From my experience the quickmatch thing always seems to throw me into the new Russian maps so I'm not sure what that really says or not.

DLC maps always die off after a while in Battlefield because of the split community. The Russian DLC maps are pretty good for the most part which is probably why they still have people playing them but you won't be finding anything but Conquest on them most likely. I think every other mode, besides TDM probably, is dead already on those maps. I'm pretty sure the French DLC maps are already dead.

I've been playing BF1 a bit lately. You can't trust the quick match finder at all, otherwise you'll waste a minute to be tossed into an empty server. You really do have to use the server finder, and you'll find populated servers across all game modes and maps, but you might have to play on a server with a slightly higher ping (around 100) for some modes at some times of day. It doesn't bother me but I'm an average player anyway, nothing too hot or too terrible.

Operations is kind of an exception - it's a bit of a crapshoot since I don't think you can just join an Operation server, and you have no information on what you're joining - you might be joining something just starting out, or something that is completely empty.

Overall though it still has a very healthy population. The first DLC maps were nothing too special but 90% of the Russian maps are outstanding (and it's an interesting concept, playing for the White or Red Army).

DICE recently added Operations to the server browser. Last I checked though, all the servers that were populated were European so you're looking at like 150+ ping.

Oh and the only server I noticed that still do back to basics is from Ireland.

I only like 2 maps from french DLC and maybe 1 from the russian.

I dont know why the level designs in the dlcs are so s***ty. A lot of them are sniper maps.

I bought premium but im always just playing in the base maps.

Hit and miss finding servers for the first DLC, in the name of the tsar has tons of people playing though.

Eh, I think I'll just pass up on it and get Nioh, maybe I'll get the premium on Black Friday sale or Christmas sale.
