Lol "semi-automatic machine gun" Machine guns can shoot in semi auto but it wouldn't be a machine gun if it was a semi auto machine gun...lol
Borderline unplayable. I gave up on it during this past weekend's XP event - went back to Second Assault.
Thank Jesus I didn't buy it so! Sick of the lag in BF4. I'm waiting for a few months after release until a purchase another online EA game. The core game still isn't fixed either and they keep pumping out map packs, complete disgrace.
Shit replied to wrong person haha.
100 percent right dude. And worse people keep hitting these boards saying crap like "maybe it's your Internet " or "it's been fixed since January". Completely false avoid until further notice. I played yesterday lagged so bad couldn't even play 16 vs 16
Hey man, did you play this on PC, PS4 or X1? I've heard from alot of peoplo that it is has problems, but they were all PS4 users, were the DLC got released (mistakenly) early without the proper patch. I have no idea if it has been released on PC or X1 yet, thats why I'm asking. I mean is there hope that it will be good after the patch or its a dead DLC? Cause I was betting on this to buy Premium.
PS4. There is hope for it after a patch, as the other packs play far better than it does. That said, the entire game still suffers from rubber-banding, but nowhere near to the extent seen in Naval Strike.
Dude, I have seen complaints from players on all consoles. And screw the DLC issues, the core game is still messed up. They shouldn't be releasing DLC when there are fundamental problems with the game. Between the game itself and DLC I have spent around €100 on it. EA are laughing all the way to the bank. Lesson learned.
Thanks. And I know right. I still can't believe how much they ruined the game from BF3 to BF4. Guess I'll wait on getting Premium, if I ever get it that is.
"Server issues – particularly bad lag with 64 players." Thats an issue with the main game not the expansion pack. The expansion pack should be reviewed based on what it adds to the game not because of existing issues. Imagine if I was playing an RPG and a huge issue with the game was the bad graphics and a company releases the expansion pack that adds a new area to the game you cant say that bad graphics is an issue of the expansion.
uh...not sure what platform you play on...but i promise the main game and all other DLC isn't CLOSE to as bad rubberbanding and network wise as naval strike with 64 players... yes, the vanilla game has fundamental networking problems...its core networking structure is based on the requirements of the xbox 360...resulting in performance similar to multiplayer on dial up...10hz server tick rate, support for players with 300+ ping, etc... so the game kind of sucks in that area, but its at least playable if you can not take it seriously...naval strike is a disaster with this, 100% unusable until further fixing is performed...
The main game is not playable 64 player unless you find lag, rubberband, and crashing playable. This is as of last night
i get a solid 5 to 10 hours of BF4 in each week since release (i don't watch TV haha)... haven't had one round of NS on PC be playable with 64 players...but have no trouble on other maps...zero rubberbanding, etc... the game is still crap networking wise, i'm not arguing that...but if you're getting rubberbanding on any map, things need to be looked at...if you're on PC anyway; if on console then no idea...
I was pumped about BF4 and bought it and Premium; preordered both.... Never again EA, I'll adopt a wait and see with the next release. Thanks for virtually ruining one of my favorite franchises.
Amen brotha. DICE really shot themselves in the foot with BF4. Goes to show, sometimes rushing to market with an unfinished product is not the right course of action. It sucks too, this game had some great potential. EDIT: OT I do agree with the review. Naval strike is flawed by the issue with the net code. Quite sad.
Couldn't agree more. It's so disappointing what has happened to BF.
i think 2 reasons become obvius from a site like ths 1st xbox one 2nd 4 hours ps.pc master race ftw!!!!
I need an interpreter.
sorry not native english speaker and i mean its a low score because he played on xbotone! and for a mere 4 hours.... interpreted!!! ;-p
Love the new maps ut the rubberbanding gives me a headache
Yep. Banding on X1 as well...unless you're in a Test Server...then it is smooth...had to turn it off today...it was so bad. Rest of the maps are great though China Rising was bad until it was patched.
