Servers are up and running.
I don't have a problem finding matches with 24 people. Problem is, everybody seems to be playing Conquest in Arica Harbor. In fact when match ends everybody quits the game and starts looking for a fresh new Arica match. I've done it myself a few times and thats the only way of playing BBC2 at this moment.
And if you join Arica and there is almost nobody, be patient because the server will be full in a matter of minutes.
