The PC version of Battlefield 4 will experience downtime during this update and also receive their own client update alongside the server’s.

15th update already? this is what happens when you rush a game.
Septic  +   473d ago
Content wise, it doesn't feel rushed at all (although I would say it seems like BF 3.5).

The annoying issue is getting kicked out to the PS4 home screen because of an unknown error. It really sucks when you're in a game that you're doing very well in and you're booted off with all your lost progress. And then in the next game you do terribly but it doesn't crash then ¬¬
Douchebag696  +   473d ago
I've noticed that myself. On matches when I'm doing really well I always get booted out to the main screen. This and the rubberbanding is really annoying.
Septic  +   473d ago
Ah yeah the rubber-banding, especially when you're piloting jets....had some really frustrating instances where it trolled me so hard. I'm in a dogifght, literally at the back of a jet spraying my machine gun and all of a sudden, massive lag and all of a sudden the jet disappears.

Oh no wait, its magically re-appeared behind me and kills me.

Rage inducing madness!

haha i have been doing same,
seems i do crap and its fine,im doing good and it crshes.

i do keep getting a rubber band effect on most games though

@septic
This happened to me lastnight, and I played the ONLY GAME THAT FEELS COMPLETE... Killzone Shadow Fall, this game has yet to crash, lag, glitch anything superb design.
Septic  +   473d ago
@Chef

¬¬ Yeah, lets agree to disagree but how 'complete' Killzone: Shadow Fall is.
BX81  +   473d ago
Same on xb1 always crashing to the dash and broken chat
NegativeCreepWA  +   473d ago
And the actually gameplay is still better than any other FPS out.
ramiuk1  +   473d ago
very true,glitches and bugs aside.
64player war is awesome.

only crashes and rubber band effect a few times i have issue with,oh and audio is a bit messed up too when in surround
TopDudeMan  +   473d ago
I wonder if they're going to fix the low ticket count on rush. Why is there no option for more than 75 tickets? The game is usually over in 2 minutes.

if they pull shit like this off on battlefront, man oh man.
llMurcielagoll  +   473d ago
Yep, blame EA for that. They are putting HUGE pressure on DICE. BF4, the fixes, the DLC, Mirror's Edge 2, Star Wars battleFront.

It's also what happens when you:

* Realize your errors

* Care about fixing them

* Say you do something and actually act upon it

It's not ideal, but that aren't trying to squirm out of it or make excuses. It's getting fixed...like a bridge...one piece at a time.

You all got what you paid for.

they really have a lot of things to work on

15? Good Lord, I'm so glad I didn't buy it.

Oh no 15 what a big number ! I'm so glad i didn't buy it ! Those are server side fixes and I'm pretty sure Bf3 saw the similar amount from the get go yet you bought it and didn't cry like a little beotch otherwise what would you be looking here for
Excalibur  +   473d ago
You have know idea what I bought or didn't buy and you have know idea what type of comments I made on BF3 but with comments like yours I can see why you only have two bubs, bub. ;)

@asmith2306

Glad you are enjoying it, I have several people on my friends list that has it and they say it's a $20-$25 game at best, I trust their comments and I stick by mine that I'm glad I didn't buy it.

asmith2306  +   473d ago
Why are you glad you didn't buy it? It's by no means broken. It has the odd issue here and there but I'm getting hours out of this game. It's awesome.
dethpuck  +   473d ago
I love battlefield but this game in its current state is a mess
LonnYTonnY  +   473d ago
@Excalibur
No*
No*
KwietStorm  +   473d ago
So you never played it, but based on server updates and some people saying it's worth $20 (LOL), you're glad you didn't buy it. Ignorance is bliss. Yea we all know of the bugs by now, but when it works, it's a really great shooter.
DiLeCtioN  +   473d ago
Where are my dedicated servers DICE?
KwietStorm  +   473d ago
Do you mean rental servers?
BelkingOfSony  +   473d ago
this makes the gta v online problems look good
yeahokchief  +   472d ago
GTA's only problems were dealing with record breaking number of players all at once and not having a beta since they like to keep their games secret for everything to be new and surprising.

Rockstar are not comparable to EA at all.

Looks like #16 will soon be on the way

Glad I didn't buy it.
venom06  +   473d ago
we're glad you didn't buy it either... one less CoD fangirl to deal with.
Excalibur  +   473d ago
It's amazing how offended some people get because you didn't buy something...
SpitFireAce85  +   473d ago
You just said a few comments earlier

"Glad I didn't buy it."

We got it..
JessiePinkmanYo  +   473d ago
Excaliber-Nevermind him. One just needs to see his comments and bubble count to get an idea what he's all about.

I understand not picking it up (now) but it's a great game. I have it and it's fantastic WHEN it works. I WILL however hold out on premium until or if they ever fix it. If I get too impatient, there's always Craigslist, eBay or GameStop. I'll lose money, but so will Dice when someone buys my used copy.
venom06  +   473d ago
N4G nerds are hilarious.. so i guess GTA5 and Ghosts were rushed too as they had TONS of patches in the beginning???? GTFO... DICE, like any other developer, just want the game to be great.
Ashunderfire86  +   473d ago
When they going to update the next gen console version? Single player still need a fix.
KwietStorm  +   473d ago
They can't fix a pointless campaign with a patch. They should have never even put single player in battlefield.
famoussasjohn  +   473d ago
While true, they have gun unlocks via campaign that become available in MP.
bumnut  +   473d ago
Thats because the campaign is so crap they have to bribe you to play it.
AllroundGamer  +   473d ago
aaaand the netcode is still "magic"... which means craptastic.
BuckyBarnes  +   473d ago
Rubber Banding. Its a server issue. I get the "mid tier" internet from my provider, no problems in other games. they gotta fix it..my kdr is .64 by the time I can move I'm dead. Happens every 2 mins in every match so far. Love the game. 3rd division in world recon.
AllroundGamer  +   473d ago
i could solve this rubber banding by "parking my cores" :) don't know if you are playing it on PC, but if so, then read this fix - http://battlelog.battlefiel... . So it's not a server issue, the game is just badly programmed really :/
WitWolfy  +   473d ago
My prob is the random game crashes. One would think they'll tackle that prob head one from the beginning!!!
KontryBoy706  +   473d ago
let the disappointment begin. They should have delayed this freaking game
KratosSaveUs  +   473d ago
That's just sad. I'm done with games published by EA they all turn out to be crap. (Except for when Mirrors Edge 2 and ME4 releases). I wish I can get my 60 bucks back. Should've got AC4.
