Having read the BF4 rules and general rules for EVGA game servers I didn't see anything mentioned about seeding(idling until a server reaches a certain player number) on BF4 servers. I do notice players idling on the server though and not being kicked due in being AFK. Can you clarify what is going on regarding this and whether or not doing so counts towards overall time towards events.

    8. Idling on any server is not allowed. Players must be active during gameplay
     A. Only exception is in Battlefield prior to the match officially starting

    Yeah I read, but what I saw was players being able to idle without being kicked for AFK during a match. e.g. they didn't spawn the entire match

    From what I understand you don't get play time unless the match actually starts and has enough players...  So seeding doesn't give you play time. https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2655890

    ok then maybe it's not seeding, but plenty of idling players are getting time recorded.
     
    whatever I'm done caring.

    Don't stop caring, if you have discord, report them to the game admins, if you don't have discord, start a thread in the EGC section and report the idle players. The rules are clear and are not meant to protect or credit those idling to collect time.

    No, the time counts even in seeding/warmup.
