I'm planning on getting the Battle Edition for PC in the next few days, how are the servers currently? How many people are on normally? Will a new player get the same experience a player from launch day had?
You'll have no problems finding matches in North America and while a few DLC gun events have passed there are more to come. In the beginning there are a lot more Noob (beginner) players and now you have the average to good players. Cheating is at a minimum and their Anti-Cheat certainly is banning people.
My single piece of advice is to have a High or Ultra spec PC https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/161495 coupled to a high refresh rate (120 Hz) or faster monitor. Yes on the PC your equipment has a large impact.
