Primary issues are that in order to counter stat padding, they set a minimum of 4 players before server/map starts. That effectively means that you can not move until there 4 or more players on the server.
On top of that the update included forced idle kick time. Which means that since you are not moving you will automatically be kicked, even if you are moving your mouse and using the keyboard.
This makes it close to impossible to seed servers, as you spend loads of time being stuck waiting for 4 players to join, just to get kicked after a couple of minutes.
This is something that are making server owners drop their BF3 servers.
The worst part is that this is not a new problem!
This was a highly criticized problem in BF2, BF2142 and BFBC2. The optimal solution, of course, would be to disable stats until player count is up to 4 or more.
