While I agree a lot of this stuff should have been addressed a while ago, gotta say better late than never. WB said they know Arkham City Origins is buggy they aren't going to fix it ... hey purchase our DLC.

Love these fixes:
•Fix for an exploit that would allow players to shoot two tank shells with not enough delay between shots - sounds like the Staff Shell tweak
•Improved boat physics and handling, including implementation of a system that lets players push stuck boats back in the water - I hate when this happens

I just hope they continue working on the NetCode and we have a better NetCode soon, something like we saw in BC2/BF3. Back then at least it felt like I was killing somebody, now it just feels like the luck of the draw.

Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order. There should be minimum standards for lag, rubber banding, etc. At the very least force greedy companies to put "ALPHA/BETA multiplayer" on the cover of the game they're selling if they can't meet the standards yet. Until people work together to change this they'll continue taking advantage of their enablers that throw money at them.

It's too bad that dice doesn't have any real competition to 'inspire' them to make a 'finished' high quality game. Obviously they don't respect their customers, they have no shame, and they'll do whatever they can get away with...

The game can be fun but there are still those "battlefield moments" where you'll say to yourself "@#$@ you dice, you lazy #%^#$%#$, after all this time it's not fixed yet?"
It's too bad they're too cheap to hire people smarter than them to fix their game.

great a lot of stuff that won't change the experience . let's try fixing the net code first
asmith2306  +   427d ago
Exactly. The rubber banding is still chronic, especially on the largest maps. Last time I buy an EA game on release. BF4 and FIFA 14 for PS4 are buggy as hell online. I'll be waiting a couple of months after release before I buy their next iterations.

Change is coming.
DavidMacDougall  +   427d ago
You shouldnt trust that, i read that the netcode was better in bf4 before release.
csreynolds  +   427d ago

We all did. It was all hype. However, this is the first time DICE has been REALLY honest about BF4's problems since launch. It'd be easy to immediately doubt their intentions and dismiss them as BS, but it could be a sign of something. Have a little faith - just a little - until they're proven to be full of it.

Unacceptable that this game was broken for so long. Still trading it in
whitefang1988  +   427d ago
Its great fixing things but pointless tweaking weapons when the net code is the worst I've ever seen on a fps
angelsx  +   427d ago
Net code and rubber banding must be fixed first.So many useless patches.
MWong  +   427d ago
DICE is still working on those issues.

Why'd they release the game then?

Because EA rushed them.
AgentSmithPS4  +   427d ago
It would be fun to have a device that could read the minds of the scum leading ea and dice.
BattleTorn  +   427d ago
Can someone please explain 'rubber banding' to me?

It's not when people spin in circles AFK to boost is it?
JoGam  +   427d ago
Look it up on youtube. Maybe someone posted a video.
T2  +   427d ago
its when your character runs forward then snaps back to a previous position, and keeps going forward, then back forward then back... you do get where you are going but it's lame as hell and ruins the immersion... and unfortunately it happens a lot.

One thing I will say about Battlefield is that it is one of the longest lasting experiences with added weapons, vehicles, etc... they need to fix the issues but I'm mostly just waiting, I would still play it in August when nothing else is out. However, anyone who doesn't own already I would hold off...

Do you guys even know what NetCode means and how it relates to the updates that DICE released. I'm really confuse with the stupid comments you guys makes about net code vs game fixes these updates has allot to do with net code why don't you guys get educated on network topology and data traffic then you understand.

Don't bother dude. It's just another phrase that gets thrown around n4g, people think they know what it means but they are only parroting what other misinformed people have said.

There are many such phrases, and whenever someone tries educating the masses on their correct meaning and use they just get ignored.

I mean 99% of the people on this site don't even read the articles. They just read the headline and start arguing or trolling. No wonder its always the BS flame bait articles that get all the attention. F'kn sad!

Hahaha Your comment is pretty funny. I can only imagine the look you give when reading such comments. Its like me listening to my friend ramble on about pistons in a rotary engine. LOL
BattleTorn  +   427d ago
I'm not very knowledgeable on this, as you can see by my lack of stupid commenting...

Can you explain it?

From what I understand, the game fixes do nothing to improve the game's lag, ect... but netcode fixes address the actual networking, ect.

sickamore  +   426d ago
@battleTorn go educate yourself on it I will probably take the advice from @purp13m0nk3y I see allot of disagree on my comment and I won't subject myself to idiots trying to insult my intelligence on the subject enough said.
Rich1631  +   427d ago
Look at the list, jeez. And this is...like patch 9 or 10 already. One of the most buggy, broken, laggest pieces of crap ever...period. Already sold it towards Titanfall and Infamous. Never again, Dice, never.

I'm hanging onto my copy. I love BF, but very few of my BF friends have gotten their nextgen consoles yet..

Maybe I'll enjoy it in the summer sometime...

I haven't had problems on BF4 for XB1 for a long time. Are these issues PS4 confined?
dantesparda  +   427d ago
No, its both of them, but i barely get any of these issues either and im on the PS4, i get alittle rubber banding from time to time, but its gotten so much better than it used to be. But usually a lot of the fixes are exactly the same for both
Rivitur  +   427d ago
Finalfinafinalfinally! Srry i was rubber banding.
RE_L_MAYER  +   427d ago
as long as you keep playing this crap the next game will be even worse
tiremfej  +   427d ago
This game has gotten much better...I haven't had issues in a while. I am playing on a X1, I did have some serious issues for a while...last patch cleared it up. It is still something I will not stop playing. I LOVE THIS GAME.
iistuii  +   427d ago
I just downloaded the patch & will give it a try later. But if like all the other patches I wonder what they've managed to break while trying to fix it's many many problems.
BattleTorn  +   427d ago
It seems like every other time I turn on my PS4 there is a 600mb patch for BF4...

I usually give the game 1match to test the patch, and then turn it off after I'm confronted with annoying lag,ect.

All the patches so far have made minimal improvements (for their size) - I wonder if I'll ever find BF4 playable...

AND I've Platinum'd it!! lmao

IMO the problem lies with the 64 players. Dunno about you but every other mode works fine for me. But 64 player CQ is so bad. It's a mixture of lag & framerate issues. Why they can't do the 32 player normal CQ I don't know, it'd there sitting at the top of the server list, but to this day there's been no servers.

They nerfed the MTAR? Wonder how bad.
