Battlefield 4 Battlecorder not available at launch, DICE “reworking” rented servers,“Battle Pickup” guns can't be resupplied and more!
Rented servers... Stupidest idea ever..
Not really. But that depends how noobish the owners and admins are. Yeah you get the occasional asshats who kick you for being "too good", but I still prefer them over official servers as the matches can last much longer.
They could have always just made a seperate option for official ones to be 200% or 300% and more variety to them overall. Anything is better then letting people run ranked servers however they please in a game where ranking up unlocks important gear and equipment. BF3's goal seemed to be two steps forward one step back in almost every single facet of the game. Team stacking, moving players, kicking players, banning players, 1 map 500% 24/7, crazy rules, rules only applying to the "other" team, etc.... happen way too often and if you only play hardcore (as i do on PS3) the decent well rounded servers are few and far between especially since they have mini-map by default. I have quite a few concerns and am not even considering day 1 or within the first few months, I feel so burned by BF3 especially after premium and rented servers came out that I am gonna wait this one out to see how it unfolds. Maybe in a yr or so I will pick up the game if things look safe. I have been going back to BFBC2 (even BF1943) and despite its own flaws I enjoy it soooooo much more overall then BF3. Would easily consider skipping BF4 and praying they go back to the BFBC series and bring back its leaner more focused approach.
Every developer rents servers. Oh, so they shouldn't rent servers? That would mean they would have to build places to put servers, hire employees to operate them, and then pay for the salaries and for the maintenance and all of that. Games that have dedicated servers don't actually own their own, self-built servers. They simply pay to have them rented out for the longevity of that game's life cycle.
Have you played Battlefield 3? He's talking about player owned servers.
Player owned servers, is what PC has since ever. i guess people are too used to Peer 2 Peer made popular by Call of Duty If anything Player owned servers are good because some people have made great playlist. DICe playlist from launched was kinda bad, since a lot of terrible maps were in the rotation. I have played non-stop since launch and i only really got booted out of a server due to a dbag admin only once, and its not like that doesnt also happen on PC. And it sure beats Host advantage
"they won’t sacrifice destruction, vehicles, 60fps, etc. for it." Awesome news 60fps 720p with 64 players is great as an launch title...
They say "Battlefield 4 Battlecorder not available at launch, DICE “reworking” rented servers," Than they keep gamers interested by saying "they won’t sacrifice destruction, vehicles, 60fps, etc. for it." DICE sure know how to cover their mistakes.
With the share button on PS4 its kind of an unofficial recorder.Sony help DICE out alot.Instead of using resources for this feature an company made it easier...
Rented servers are what killed BF3 for me!! Looks like i'll be skipping BF4 if thats the case.
Its not hard to find an official DICE server, dude. Edit: below. I do play hardcore, but not on officials. Its been a while since I've looked ha.
It is if you play hardcore.
They are practiclly all empty(official servers,core and hardcore) If you like hardcore servers(my case)they are very few,If you´re better then the owner(s) of the rented servers you´re kicked,banned or sent to the other team. Giving that kind of power to immature little brats is what killed batllefield 3 in consoles and they need to correct that,if not it will not last half a year. Hopeing they learn from past mistakes and dont be gready for the money of rent servers.
rented servers made it better, you just have to find the right one for you. I loved 300% ticket fights, maps I loved, no spawn delay etc etc
Rented servers? WTF!
All I really mean is why do I have to pay to make a room for me and my buddies to play in. An I'm sure this time round if I go 40-2 I'm gonna get kicked because some dude can't handle himself believing I'm cheating...
If your playing PS3 your more than welcome to come play with my team (Digital Kings - http://digitalking.enjin.co... We're always looking for talented players and have our own server. We get kicked from numerous ones to because we're good. It happens. Might as well hang out with people who are good too.
Bit of circle jerking going on here ;) Hahaha I kid I kid..
Rented servers?! Dafuq?
Are some of you allergic to just speaking normally? What exactly are you adding or hoping to say here?
Theres plenty of decent rented servers on BF3. While there is the occasional ass-hat that will boot you for beasting on them, what can you do it is what it is. Just remember the room that booted you and dont connect to it anymore. There are Looooosers everywhere i myself prefer quality opposition, how else are you going to improve your skills playing scrubs.
Yea I love some good competition. But that's the thing on ps3.. The man with the rule book get rid of the guys on the other team leaving no good comp. I stopped playing because either people all leave after one game (and it was a good game) or one side is just killing the other.. Sucks 8=D
Rented servers was what ruled in BF3. There will be many DICE servers in the beginning. After 6 months there will be less. A year later only private servers everyhwere. There will be many many private servers but barely any official servers by then. If you find some in BF3 right now, lemme know. I hope Dice isnt pulling our leg like last time. They said they might Implement Battlerecorder in BF3, well BF4 is coming out. Now they said it wont be at launch. Well its not happening this time either.
Rented servers are horrible. These admins made the most ridiculous rules. Who the hell wants to play the same map for 3 hours long? Or they had servers where there were only 3 map rotations. So you purchased a game that costs around $100.00 after all the DLC just to play 3 maps? They should do away with rented servers altogether. Or make rented servers non-ranked, so they can stay in there lane and don't mess with the real battlefield experience.
dude you can check the number of tickets before you jump in! I know a lot of rooms have restrictions like weapons etc. But hell if they say no stingers and i see aircrafts everywhere im pullin that mofo right out. The hell with that no one abides by their dam rules anywayz!!
Thats why you find Team VOIP servers or just servers where admins don't abuse there power. I would say there is about 30-40 hardcore & normal servers on 360 that don't just randomly boot people , it's a very small community no doubt, but I don't get how people even play Battlefield without being able to communicate with the whole team , I haven't played in a none mic only room in almost a year.
yeah i have a few servers on the PS3 that ive added to my favorites that i play for the most part. They always seem to have plenty of players in them. Basic rules like no jet ramming or spawn killing!
What was a killer for me was racking up over one hundred kills and then the game auspiciously freezes up and having to turn the console of!. Rented servers ruined this franchise!
What is that about? Happens to me all the time, the guys at work are sick of me saying I was having an awesome game with X kills and the game froze. I figured it had just crashed, unlike when you are actually kicked from the game. Only happens on good rounds.
Rented servers were the only thing that sucked in BF3.
Happened to me a lot!, very suspicious!.
