      Exclamation Taking a break..

      Hey guys just letting you know I will be taking a break from bf4, at this current stage in the game i am really not happy that DICE hasn't improved anything (even though the September patch it coming). I have just had enough bf4 for a while and i will be not participating in anything to do with it. I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to say, I will still be online just I'll most likely be playing CS:GO.
      Sorry for any inconveniences.

      Sincerely,

      Maple




      (Side note: I will also not be around at all from October the 13th to December 7th because I am going to Thailand for 8 weeks with my school, no exams for me! )

      I took another break as after a patch the other week, my gun will sometimes stop firing when on full auto.

      Not good for combat, especially with LMG.

      Cru i'm not being rude however as of late a large majority of your statements has been regarding the negative aspects of the game. You just stated your gun stops firing randomly, now that sounds like a ridiculous statement to make about any FPS game to have as a bug, and if i'm honest i've never had more than 70% of the problems that you have allegedly had. Which leads me to question you regarding your PC set up as i suspect that may be the cause to your problems with battlefield.

      Don't get me wrong.
      When the game runs fine, then I am happy.

      However I have been playing since BF 1942 (the first title) and have witnessed the rise and subsequent slump with titles coming out of DICE.


      Regardless of reason etc, they are essentially doing a shit job now.


      My feelings are a combination of three things:

      1) Rinse and repeat of modern combat.
      -Each revision, engine tweaks, some new skins... another ~$100 thanks.
      -Has been no major overhauls since the jump from 2142. (there used to be a significant overhaul every 2 years)

      2) Stability.
      -Each of the previous titles were more stable on launch than BF3 and BF4.
      -Still to this date DICE break shit weekly, even when fixing other issues. I mean SHIT... does not one beta test this before releasing?

      3) Gameplay.
      -Cant seem to reside in a chopper for 5 seconds without being painted by a hundred bloody tracking rockets in this game. Takes all the skill out of it.
      -Client side hit detection still one of the worst decisions of all time.
      -Seems to have lost that spark which distinguished battlefield from other titles.



      Sure. I am a bit bitter and negative about BF4.

      But why wouldn't I be?
      -I spent my hard earned money on the game plus premium.
      -I then have to endure frustrating bugs because EA isn't beta testing.
      -Battlefield series was my favourite, but its now like an STD lol. (Good time, resulting in an unenjoyable aftermath.)
      -I expect the game to be patched pronto, but instead keep hearing about them working on frontline...

      Hello Crusader, we don't know each other but I can tell we are going to be good friends.

      I am not one for defending things like this but I am bored and you raise some interesting points that I would like to explain.

      no, not really. CTE is a great idea and is making the game much nicer to play so I would say they are going a good job now.. (months late but better late than never)

      Well you cannot really talk down the rinse and repeat formula when you enjoyed 2142 (I assume) seeing as pretty much the same engine was used in 1942, Vietnam, 2 and 2142.
      Not liking the modern combat theme is more personal opinion, personally I would rather it all be based in Vietnam as that is clearly the greatest for games.

      Client side hit detection is actually just as good as server side in the long run, they just come with different side effects. the most well known from client side is dying behind a corner, whereas with server side it is the no damage bug when you shoot someone, blood comes out yet no damage is recorded. Client side also has the bonus of being able to play against other countries as ping difference in the game isn't as harsh (BF3 was much better at this than BF4).

      Not true, they do beta test but the game has a lot of crap in it so it is impossible to find everything before it gets given to everyone. Thousands of people playing everyday beat whatever DICE has (probably 2).
      The game is being patched, the next one is seemingly going to be the best one yet (my opinion after playing CTE the last 2 days). so their CTE program is clearly working well and supposedly a lot of the changes being made to BF4 are being brought into hardline as well.

      Hi Squish, I am Crus. Long time battlefield player and founded this community here (HC replaced me as leader).


      I appreciate some of your points, there is definitely a compelling argument you put forth. However I definitely maintain that in my view, DICE have not maintained as enjoyable experience in the past few releases.
      Personally I believe they have gone downhill since targeting COD audience and Xbox / PS.

      Also CTE... I get that it is helpful, but far too late. Besides EA / DICE should not have to rely so heavily on the community for beta testing.


      Essentially they are cost cutting by using the community as test engineers.
      EA should be testing the games and releasing when ready. EA even acknowledged that QA was skipped.


      Released games did not used to be this full of bugs or this unstable several years ago... not sure why its acceptable now? (Not having a go or anything just pointing it out.)

      Would you expect a new car to be only half done?
      A new house?




      Maybe I am too harsh, but as a customer I expect each release to be better than the prior.
      I expect much less bugs and much more stability - even on first release.


      I will let this be the last comment on my feelings for BF3/4 and try not to repeat myself in other threads.



      In the future however, I think I will treat the battlefield series (like all other EA titles) "caveat emptor".

      PoliceMan, I can understand why many people feel only the negativity in the game as there are still so many issues that it's hard to see the ones that Dice have dealt with. The netcode of course being greatly improved, to the extent that as an active bf3 player, it might be better than bf3's.

      Most of the issues seem to be more apparent for conquest players. They are aggravated by the larger formats, and the vehicle balance is still very questionable in my opinion. I've almost entirely switched to tdm, domination, chainlink, and rush as a result. I guess it's a lot of reputation, and bad will from the slow rate of fixes, and the broken start that the game had, and still has.

      See you in csgo maple, I know my time off from bf4 did me some good.

      @feral I have more issues with the smaller format stuff (sfs) than I do conquest(cq). My hitreg on cq is often way better than it is on sfs. there are many other factors that can come into this, but as soundguy was trying to point out, the majority of the problems in this game seem to be due to the clients; connection, set up, play style, skill and a few other factors.

      I can attest to the fact that these play a big part, especially connection, for about 1-2 months I was having absolutely terrible in game experience, because my net was slightly worse than it usually is, and this appeared to push me over the edge in game, to the point where nothing was working. (this was getting to the point where i was starting to question my own ability and starting to think that maybe i had just gotten terrible and lost the groove). But then just an average improvement in my net of ~2-4% put me back under this invisible threshold and I was able to actually kill things again.

      What I am trying to say is that if you are finding that you are not getting any hit reg, try close anything and everything that could be affecting your net/restart router. this will be the major cause of your issues in my opinion.

      If it is other problems with the game, try and figure out when they occur and either avoid those situations, or take a video and try and work out how to fix the bug and send it to dice. Taking a video and then providing steps for them to recreate the scene and recreate the bug over and over is the fastest way
