Hopefully Battlefield 5 will NOT be made for the PS3.X360 so DICE can concentrate on better code optimization and debugging instead of making a game to run on EVERY platform ever made at the same time.

To late I got rid of that game the day Titanfall came out. Still loving BF3 on PC tho

STUPID TITLE!!!!! they said NOTHING about so-called "Netcode" issues in that blog.. the netcode is fine since recent updates.. that blog was about the RUBBERBANDING thats on some 64 player servers... what a dumb a#$ that created this title on N4G..

AgentSmithPS41482d ago

Hopefully more than one new company makes a game similar to BF4 but without the BS. It's sad that the game can be very fun, but the amount of lag/bugs/etc they dump on me just spoils it.

micx1482d ago

I guess it's better late than never, or is it?

christrules00411482d ago

Yes because they can fix the netcoding for the next game. If they don't realize it the next star wars game or next battlefield game could come out with the same crappy netcoding.

Patrick_pk441482d ago

Well Dice isn't developing the next Battlefield, however, Battlefront 3 better have an amazing net code.

csreynolds1481d ago

DICE games have had poor multplayer coding for years. They've learned nothing.

I'm so disapointed.Never again pre order or premium

brich2331482d ago

I got my refund for BF4 Premium 3 days ago. I suggest you guys do the same if you are unsatisfied with BF4

BattleTorn1482d ago

I take it you give up the content as well?

brich2331482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

Not satisfied at all. I just got my refund for BF4 digital just now. So in total i got back 109.98$

The chat support person on said he can issue a refund because it was a know problematic game. The money was sent back to my paypal since that is what i used to buy it. The money for premium went into my microsoft account.

I applaud you for this. It's unacceptable and id like to hear from people on this forum who keep coming into these articles saying "it's been fixed since Jan ". They should be banned.
I got the game free and upgraded to ps4 version for 9.99. That's all the money they are getting from me.
Bf3 I paid 59.99 plus premium.
Bf5 is wait and see. Not one cent until I see proof the game works with no lag, I dumped cod for same thing in bops2 and never went back.

ramiuk11482d ago

i got my full refund back in december/jan for bf4,it was a complete mess after numerous updates.
is it still a mess now then?

brich2331482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

Yes. The new maps are glitchy. One of the maps would load up and u were walking on nothing until the graphics loaded fully. On the same map I spawned on someone and ended up underground in water, got out of it and killed a guy at least lol. Hit detection is still an issue too, dice made a comment on it recently. Its still an inconsistent game. One game me and my friends would have the best connection in the world and get high Kd's, the next game on the same server your getting dominated and going negative because of the hit detection.

I've got my refund in February by selling the game ! 5 fucking months it took them to admit this shit was broken... FIVE !

dantesparda1482d ago

Meanwhile, im barely having any problems with it and loving it.

BoriboyShoGUN1482d ago

I'm not having any major problems either. I try and stay on the original maps, those China Rising maps lag like shit!!!That being said the game still does have its bad days when it just sucks! I guess I'm just not as die hard as I used to be, I just log off or play something else.

T21482d ago

You aren't having any problems but avoid maps and log out on "bad days"???!!!
Cmon bro (not mad but it makes you think right?)

The primary reason bf4 is 64 player conquest! None of those maps work.

BoriboyShoGUN1482d ago

well I play 64 conquest too. All I'm saying is the original maps seem to work for me just fine, but it does have its days when no matter what u do it just sucks. Now is that acceptable? no by no means, I'm just letting the guy know what works on my end.
