Battlefield 4 – DICE Suggests Sub 50 Player Limit For Rented Servers On PS4 and Xbox One

MP1st - With the long requested rent-a-server feature now live for Battlefield 4 across all platforms, it seems that the implementation of the feature server isn’t going as smoothly as DICE had hoped it would. (Battlefield 4, PS4, Xbox One)

We would like to thank those early adopters for beta testing our products by paying us, thank you we couldn't make it without you !

Exactly why I'm boycotting the next one, I remember at launch being exited to shell out money for the game and what I ended up with was broken garbage, surprisingly this years cod actually looks great and since I haven't bought one since mw2 I may just give that a go instead
gigoran  +   137d ago
Maybe you should. If you like repetitive 6v6 then it's better for you. I like war games with war like numbers in war like settings. Cod hasn't done that, ever. So my thing is bf. I can think of multiple shooters with 6v6 limits that I'd rather play than cod.

Cod 4 did 48 man servers on pc. Seriously good stuff

we may get BF5 before they fix the mess which is BF4, they release a patch to fix few issues but it seems every patch brings with it new issues

EA you paid for advertisement on every site, so no one had the balls to give it bad scores. And this gaming media we are suppose to trust

I hate custom servers on BF people just seem to create servers with one map at max tickets do you realize how boring that gets
Codewow  +   137d ago
I personally love playing on those servers. I never played battlefield for 15 minute matches. The matches I play are at least an hour long per game. Gives me plenty of time for immersion in the battlefield with sniping as well as a legitimate reason to use tactics and strategy. (I play conquest only) or I will play meat grinder which is hilariously good fun if you don't mind a bad k/d

There are a few great maps that I could spend hours playing on, I hate when I join a map I want to play and it quickly switches to one that I don't. It's best if you play with friends since it will probably be unbalanced if the admins are lazy or cowards.

There are some servers that have only the best maps, those are nice too.

Whaa!! BF4 having server issues, I can't be.
Naga  +   137d ago
It didn't have to be this way. It really didn't.

I am so fed up with these continuous shenanigans. And what's most frustrating in all of it is how bloody close BF4 is to utter greatness. I imagine that game, without the bugs and glitches, and it's a magnificent dream... but only a dream.
diehardmetallicafan  +   137d ago
agreed. i just picked up the game yesterday for the ps4 thinking, maybe, with all the patches it wouldn't be so bad. i was wrong...
Geekman  +   137d ago
Grr. The only lasting appeal of shooters is the multiplayer. Hopefully Advanced Warfare will have a nice long CAMPAIGN where I can enjoy a game WITHOUT paying for PSN and getting pwned by stuff like this.
KwietStorm  +   137d ago
Good luck.
iagainsti120  +   137d ago
Wolfenstien the new order seems to be the best contender for a first person shooter with an enjoyable long campaign. Also it does not have multi-player.

I never see such a broken game
danny818  +   137d ago
Broken indeed. Probably the only good for out there right now next to killzone :/

Picked if up on Black Friday on XboxOne $25 - what a mess!
Traded it in the following week for more..
When they get round to making it playable I will pick it up again.

Can't even handle 64 players LOL!
iagainsti120  +   137d ago
As of the last few days all of my problems with the rubber banding and lag have gone away. All of the 64 player games I have joined recently have been rubber banding free. I play on PS4 by the way. It would be horrible if they limited the player count on the rented servers to anything other that 64. But I see no reason for a limit like 50 or 40 this seems like a glitch and not just the server struggling with the player count.

i havent had issues this last few days either on ps4.
some maps have had tiny amount of rubber banding in trucks,but not game breaking.
still 10x better than ghosts
iagainsti120  +   137d ago
I gave Ghosts a shot (pun intended) at my buddy's house on PS4 have to say I have more fun playing BO2 on PS3 or Unit 13 for Vita.
I have been big into battlefield since Battlefield Modern Combat, and am also a veteran of BF BC2, BC2 Vietnam, BF 1943, BF3. I really hope and have to say I really think the quality issues steam from having to release BF4 on 5 systems. This is the First time that they have released a game on this many systems at or around the same time. At most they had 1 game release on 3 systems around the same time this being BF3. Sorry about the tangent its late and I am about to go to bed.

They using cheap ass servers.
iagainsti120  +   137d ago
Yes they were, and they are in the process of migrating over to newer higher performance servers. http://blogs.battlefield.co...

they already did that, and they never bothred to maintain them.
GrilledCheeseBook  +   137d ago
I remember back in the day when you could run your own servers.
Wizard_King  +   137d ago
You still can on PC.

Console gamers will never have that luxury I'm afraid, that is just a vein to big and juicy to leave untapped.
pennywhyz  +   137d ago
PC's are Godlike.
endzeitkind  +   137d ago
With 50 players it is much more fun. You dont die that much and it is possible to play a little bit sneaky in my opinion.
mcgetbusy  +   137d ago
Does somebody mind explaining what's broken with bf4? People just say its broken and then people agree by repeating the statement in different ways but never actually say what's wrong. I've had the game since it came out and I honestly have no idea what you're referring to
cfc83  +   137d ago
I've not had many problems either. Though for many there is rubberbanding issues, hit count issues and lag problems. I think there are problems with lag compensation on many occasions, but people don't complain when they benefit from it. It does seem to me at times that who dies in a shootout is random. All in all though it has been a good game. I wouldn't pre-order BF5 though. I'll let others beta test it.

It is/was broken depending on the game mode you were playing. The smaller than last-gen bf4 10vs10 tdm/dom etc worked fine for me (I call it CoD mode since there's no vehicles), I don't usually play those modes very long but 64 player CQ was rubber banding garbage and I could only take so much. I assume ea made it 10vs10 so they could use their low quality servers which couldn't handle 15 vs 15.

The (non-existant?) team balancing was the 2nd most annoying thing, even after a map change. Dying behind impenetrable cover. Helicopters not having below radar VS air vehicles (tons of things can kill you). Jets OP in some situations. Dog tag covering up the other dog tag on kill cams. Etc...
