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.
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
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.
Have they fixed the campaign yet? Everytime I play its starts me from beginning.
@twinspectre 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.
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).
@Alexander 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.
Chill. BF4 maybe a bit of a mess but dont take it too far. Dont become a politician
@seanpitt23 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.
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?
"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.
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. 'a rushed game is forever bad, a delayed game is eventually good' - miyamoto
Damn EA a top-tier publisher failing like this that garbage
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.
EA gives the time deadlines, and budget for how much to spend on testing and fixes.
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.
Either way EA and dice always are both garbage and seriously EA step up your game
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.
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
So, in other words nothing has changed.
I've been wanting to pick this up for PS4, but i guess its best to wait.
The pathetic site "Gameranx" has been on a mission to report so-called issue without a SHRED of evidence (video with time and date) of said issue... hell, ANY CoD FANBOY or DDoSer can report so-called issues after evert patch, but with no time and dated proof, THIS IS ALL BS... people please be smart and realize that just as there CoD haters, theres BF haters, and the little garbage site, Gameranx is definiitely one of them... Timed and date proof of issues OR STFU...
Gameranx must be in Cahoots with dualshockers, Kotaku, IGN, N4G, Polygon (who changed their review to a 4) and even registered BF players like myself on the battle log site. I own both BF and Ghosts, and actually prefer BF. The game is fantastic, when it works, but keep telling yourself it's a fanboy conspiracy. EDIT-I guess you're part of the conspiracy. You stated this a few days ago-"the amount of crashes on the consoles are DEFINITELY diminishing.... and one thing's for sure, when this game is working as intended (which is MUCH MUCH more the past few weeks), it world's better than CoD.. especially from a gameplay/graphics standpoint.. #4 20d ago by venom06 | View comment" There may be CoD fanboys, but judging by your comments, you're a rabid BF fanboy.
and you are about delusional as they come and TOTALLY miss the point of the comment. I could care less about you, DICE or this game, but i'm not blind or stupid enough to realize that people dont try to sabtog games (just like people try to downtalk and sabatog CoD)... the point is, 1. the patch JUST came out today 2. you're mentioning sites that made comments before the latest patch 3. without TIME and DATED prove of issues FROM THE LATEST PATCH, you're comments are pointless.
I'm delusional? "The patch was just released today"...so by Dice doing this everything is fixed? My point was numerous players on multiple sites are reporting crash issues, against your comment blaming gameranx for "sabatoging" BF4. Maybe some of those reports ARE before the patch or during the patch which will cause instability, but numerous sites reporting it may mean something. I also remember when this game came out, EA making a statement blaming PSN which they retracted. It clearly wasn't Sonys fault because all other games played fine. It also happened a week later on X1 when I picked it up. BTW, you're misinformed too. The patch came out today, but one system was left out, (Xbox One) http://www.videogamer.com/p... Keep blaming the fanboys of CoD, and keep feeding us the conspiracy theories though. EA/Dice have a shit track record, and anyone who believes otherwise is dillusional
How about you go to the thread online and look at all the posts from pissed off gamers? Crazy, I know, but what the hell, right?
Obviously those comments were written by Employees of Activision. BF4 has no issues - it is a bug-free game with everything in place. ALL the troublemakers are from Activision trying to push CoD instead. /s
At this point they should just fix one platform at a time. Its already broken, everyone knows it. Focus in on each console and get it done. All these simultaneous patches seem to be making it worse
