Ughhhh, ive been able to play fine since launch, if this starts giving me problems im going to bust a nerve.

EA are the worst.

twinspectre1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

and i would like to know WHY YOU STILL BUY EA Product???

we all know EA is the Worst company
but why you still support them ?
i'm glad i don't buy BF4 because i know this game will have bugs
i bet you will buy BATTLEFIELD 5 and BATTLEFIELD 6 and BATTLEFIELD 7 and you still complain because the game Crashes

GarrusVakarian1594d ago

Try reading my comment properly, my game has been fine, ive hard hardly any problems, ive been loving BF4 online.

My love for videogames outweighs my hatred for EA. If i want to play something, i will but it. Let them froth at the mouth for my money, i don't care. As long as i get enjoyment from my purchase (which i am) then im happy.

seanpitt231594d ago

Have they fixed the campaign yet? Everytime I play its starts me from beginning.

Septic1594d ago


Because we play games, not politics. BF4 has problems yes, but it isn't a complete broken mess. DICE are hard at work fixing it, even halting work in other areas to make sure BF4 is fully functional.

malokevi1594d ago

Agree with Lukas. Some issues here and there aren't enough to deter me from enjoying a great game.

Hopefully they can get these problems ironed out sooner than later, so that we can all enjoy the best FPS in next-gen consoles. I would be bummed out if this update started causing problems for me, as I've been having a pretty good go of things, apart from occasional crashes to the dashboard.

@ Lukas,

PC or Console (which one)?

I'm on the PS4 and for the 1st week and 1/2 I could not play at all. Now I'm playing regularly with a few crashes (had 3 yesterday-all at the end of the match and I lost my stats for the match).

Still, its a blast to play and is the best shooter for the PS4 right now (imo).

GarrusVakarian1594d ago


PS4. It crashed 3 times to the UI but apart from that i really have been playing flawlessly. I play rush mode 99% of the time and only choose servers with full connection.....idk if that makes a difference lol.

pandehz1594d ago


BF4 maybe a bit of a mess but dont take it too far.

Dont become a politician

UnholyLight1594d ago


I had the same problem, lost my campaign progress in that level with the typhoon. The latest patch has fixed most of those random crashes in the campaign...Although I still experienced one which did NOT delete my progress thank god. Just play straight through the campaign and don't press the PS button. I think it is related to the interface because that's what caused the crashes for me when I was in a singleplayer game!

This is on the PS4 platform, it might be different elsewhere!

This game regularly crashes on my PS4. It's also lost my save data 3 times forcing me to start over on the campaign. Not Happy.

mgeezy3131594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

I've never been so disappointed in a company in my life. This will be the last time I ever pre-order anything from EA because I feel like my money was absolutely wasted. I was so excited for this game, and with every crash that I have, it dwindles away at my hope.

Might be the last battlefield I buy. Bf3 had bugs they still haven't fixed and now in bf4 I keep getting kicked out of games.
If I had money I would sue EA for selling incomplete products

@ seanpitt23
Getting the same crap, pissed me off to start over on the Typhon level last week. Stopped playing until Dice can get their crap together. Also do anybody know when the Mantle API patch/software suppose to come out?

BALLARD321594d ago

"EA are the worst."

EA are indeed greedy assholes, but too bad they have nothing to do with the patch. The blame is all on DICE here.

tee_bag2421593d ago

I have it on PC and can't even be bothered with it, but not for the crashing. I didn't suffer any crashes but my mate couldn't even get through a game.

this is worse than the gta v online problems. this is what happens when you rush a game.

Damn EA a top-tier publisher failing like this that garbage

AllroundGamer1594d ago (Edited 1594d ago )

just a fact for you: EA doesn't program the game... i like how everyone is angry at EA, but DICE is the one with unskilled programmers who are making all the problems. And btw. i don't want to defend EA in any way, just stating, that both companies are crap.

mochachino1594d ago

EA gives the time deadlines, and budget for how much to spend on testing and fixes.

CJDUNCAN1594d ago

exactly, EA gets too much of the blame when they are just the publishers in this case.

Anywho, DICE dropping the ball is nothing new.

XiSasukeUchiha1594d ago

Either way EA and dice always are both garbage and seriously EA step up your game

Parasyte1594d ago

SO it's DICE's fault that EA made them rush the game through it's QA phase just so they could beat Ghosts to market? DICE didn't have enough time to find and fix all of the coding issues before the game had to be shipped off for production.

I will give you that DICE are seriously dropping the ball on fixing this mess. One patch fixes some issues but causes more.

DanielGearSolid1594d ago

DICE isnt an independant developer that EA hired to make battlefield. They are EA employees, wholly owNed by EA. Dice is literally just a name at this point. EA as a whole developed and published the abomination formerly known as Battlefield 4
