Firstly, a ddos, is very possible on "gaming systems"

HAHA

and also, servers for "gaming systems" are also pcs....

silly you :P

You can get DDOS on gaming systems lol. Just shows you know nothing about what a DDOS is or how the internet works. a DDOS brings down servers by constantly barraging it with information. Its been done numerous times to XBL servers forcing MS to take the servers down for a few hours. However the difference between a game and XBL is a massive infrastructure. They could easily take down game servers though.

instead they should attack the accounts of all the DICE programmers, that are responsible for this mess of a game and take all their money.

So you're trying to say that all the bugs and glitches and bad netcode is DICE's fault? Maybe it's EA who simply forced DICE to rush the development because of Ghosts? Yes, BF4 is actually in the beta state right now but again, it's not programmers fault.
AllroundGamer  +   816d ago
definitely, everyone saw how they fixed bugs on BF3 and now on BF4, and they are mostly just messing more things up as they are fixing... so this isn't only a problem of a rushed launch. programmer skill 0.

Not to mention that most of those programmers were not working on the games networking.

Maybe it's because EA is using Battlelog. Wouldn't things be more secure under a regular system where you launch whichever game mode you want from within the game itself?

Pathetic.

F'ing losers...I'm a console gamer and know this pain all to well with the PSN attack a couple years ago. Hope the issue gets fixed for the PC gamers

What's a DDOS attack exactly?

Feel sorry for the DICE guys. I think BF4 is one of the best games i've ever played. I can tell i'm gonna be playing it for a long time on next-gen consoles.

But the game wasn't anywhere near ready for release. Beating COD to the market didn't help. They should have focused on beating COD when it came to quality.

I don't blame DICE, I blame EA for rushing DICE and forcing them to publish it before it was ready.

It's a shame. Hope the problems get sorted out soon.

Low lifes.

Appearently they have nothing else to do but to ruin the lifes of millions of people, who have been waiting long enough for this game and spend their well earned money on it.

This is entirely pointless. Just some bitter litle troll who happens to know the lowest way to attack something on the internet. What the hell is this going to achieve? If you are upset out the bugs it is not going to get them fixed faster FFS! I know this will be a gamer/gamers. Makes be a bit sick to be within the same community.

Why don't they DDOS the biggest cash grab ever concieved, COD? Why mess with a game that is acually trying?

Stupid.
pandehz  +   815d ago
