Resolution has no effect on the servers nor does most of the other graphics options. What maters is that the game engines runs at the correct speed and syncs up with the server.
What is an issue for multiplayers is CPU power. The poly count and texture quality can be dropped down to a level where they aren't hindering performance but having a bunch of players running around all who's movement and shots need to be updated in real time well that is not as easily solved.
If BF4 runs @ 720p then its due to devs again prioritizing rendering complexity over rendering resolution aka trying to cram in more eye candy then the console can handle at 1080p.Edited by Bit_reaper - 3/22/13 at 11:17pm
