I returned it got every penny back. Im sorry for everybody who still has this, when it's to much to ask for a finished working product these days is where I draw the line with EA

There is nothing wrong with the game now, so would you all quite bitching and moaning about problems that are no longer applicable?! So annoying hearing all this whining, grow up!

It's almost as annoying when people are in denial about it. I love BF4 and have played it to death. All too often the rubber banding/lag are huge issues. I have played it some nights and it worked perfectly. Others, however, the matches became unplayable. How many of you experienced these issues on Lansing Dam or Hanian Resort? Apparently there is something wrong if it happens more often than not on specific maps.

Well I don't have these problems, and I know many others who don't have it either.

This game is awesome and addicting as hell but there are still a lot of issues with it. the annoying one for me is the sound not playing. i noticed though you just have to play through a match and it will start up. I get the rubberband thing too sometimes. not a lot but its there. A lot of times i feel the hit detection on the guns are off which is annoying as hell too. Grenades and claymores seem not to work sometimes too. game is buggy as hell but i still play it everyday. haha

When the round starts try not to do anything for the first 10 seconds. In fact, wait to deploy after the first 10 seconds.

I had this issue non stop, but now after not immediately deploying I no longer have the issue.

Plus it saves you a walk! :)

It's rubberbanding more than ever.

I think the EA servers are to blame due to memory allocation or over utilization. Knowing EA they are using "work arrounds" like restarting the virtual servers every 12 hours instead of adding more system resources i.e. RAM and Cores.

Then again, I know EA wants to make as much $ as possible and wants to resolve this issue so they can rent out servers to the public (ala BF3).
