DICE has yet to fully fix Rubber Banding in Battlefield 4

Six months after the release of Battlefield 4, DICE is still fixing different issues plaguing the game. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Ever since the release of the new "high performance servers", I haven't experienced rubber banding on any map. If you have experienced any rubberbanding, make sure your connection is alright.

I have had, at most, one or two "jolts" thats it. Everything else is smooth for me

I still experience lag and i even switched to a wired connection with DL speeds of 30mbps and UL of 10mbps (im located in canada). I guess some people are just lucky, although it is ALOT less than when the game first released. My biggest problem with the game is you do need a very solid connection to play and helicopters just seem to be broken, ive ran into lag issues when only flying in a helicopter. Overall its still a amazing game.

I retract my statement, i am now experiencing worse lag than i ever have before... Dam level... I firmly believe it has to do with having too few over capacity servers from EA being cheap, and now after the "upgrade" more people are trying to play and thus again over burdening the system...

dude, the Dam level never lags. something was up with that particular server or probably had too many users with bad connections. make sure you only connect to servers in your region.

Ive had a few moments with abit of lag, nothing like the god awful naval strike maps. Ive played all dlc but naval strike since the new servers. Im glad half the battle is over now.

At first the supposed high performance servers ensured a steady, rubber bandless connection every round. However, after playing tonight (PS4) I see that the issues have come back.

I'm done.

Everythings fine now! Even naval strike maps are smooth! :).
GamerDad1987  +   145d ago
I know. Thank GOD!!!! The naval maps have been unplayable since they released and now I can finally play them.

nevermind the rubber banding, im not getting that but that fact the ps3 version still freezes mid game random times having to hard reset my ps3 is a major reason i havnt played much.
KwietStorm  +   145d ago
Well that would happen even with BF3. Could easily just be the dated hardware and not being completely friendly with the engine.
Omegasyde  +   145d ago
Not to sound rude, but this game is best played on newer hardware(PC/PS4/Xbone). I suggest upgrading when you get the cash to do so.

Is this still an issue?

I just completed the story missions (PS4 Copy,) and after I'm done with Infamous SS' (replay being evil on expert) Platinum trophy, I totally wanna play BF4 mp.

It's playable now. That's about as much as I can say. I haven't had much rubberbanding for a while now, even before the new servers. I'm away this weekend, so I can't try it out, but this article is the first I've seen saying anything other than significant improvement.

And when someone asks you for ammo, drop ammo.
Omegasyde  +   145d ago
I spam the commarose "I need ammo" so #%@%@ often. When I play as support, and I hear it I'll drop the ammo immediately.

If they are near me, I'll even go to them.

same with health. and snipers, FREAKING MARK ARMOR. thanks,

someone who knows how to play
BaconBits  +   140d ago
Funny. Sometimes I have to run after people that need health - ask for it, and then run away!
Npugz7  +   145d ago
I just played it! Soooo much better!!
KingDon  +   145d ago
Yeah just got off playing BF4 and there are still issues that exist. Did feel a bit better though.
ThatOneGuyThere  +   145d ago
MUCH more playable now. Ive been playing 64p naval strike all day on PS4 and only once in a while get a minor hiccup. Im so happy to have ended my 6 month stay in rubber band city. :-D

Never mind about all this Battlefield nonsense, lets talk about Star Wars BATTLEFRONT!
cyclindk  +   145d ago
Yes, lets :)

My last star wars fix was angry birds and pinball... :(

Force unleashed type game and battlefront, yes please

Or an entire game as ..... Jar jar .....

May I suggest the clone wars on Netflix to ease that star wars addiction? It is pretty dam good
daBUSHwhaka  +   145d ago
Money back you amateur scum.Can't be long now for the refunds to start rolling out.
DJ  +   144d ago
It's finally smooth! The game should've been delayed, but I guess that's why so many people wait 6 months after titles like this release before buying.
SillyBastid  +   144d ago
not sure whats up but today its worse than ever!
BaconBits  +   140d ago
I have found that if you search for "test" in the server search the games tend to be a bit smoother. I do this when looking for Naval Strike maps because they are the only ones I find have a few issues once in a while.
