Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation

Today we launched Battlefield 4 on Xbox One. With that console, we will have brought Battlefield 4 to no less than five platforms. It is amazing to see such a complex universe come to life across so many advanced hardware systems. Millions of people around the world are playing the game and seeing the tip of the iceberg of what the next generation has to offer. At DICE, we are committed to you, the fans, and view the game as a live service. I am extremely proud of the people at DICE and everyone across EA that contributed to the development of Battlefield 4. However, I am less proud to see that the game has experienced some turbulence during the launch period. While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving the launch issues is our #1 priority. In fact, we are so serious that we have the entire team working to stabilize the game and we will not move on to other projects until we are sure that Battlefield 4 meets – and exceeds – your expectations. It is the right thing to do.

To show our appreciation for your patience as we work through these issues, we are announcing that from November 28 through December 5, we will reward all players with Double XP for every multiplayer match they complete. We understand that the launch issues may have impacted your progression, and we want to do everything we can to help you get back the XP that you may have lost. Also, to cap off the week, on December 5 we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4 multiplayer a M1911 pistol scope. This special sidearm scope, previously reserved for our DICE developers, has a 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.

You are the heart and soul of Battlefield. We thank you for your support in these early days of the launch, and will continue to show our appreciation as time goes on. To stay informed about the latest game updates, please visit us at Battlefield 4 Control Room or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you,

Karl Magnus Troedsson

    TO ALL YOU PEOPLE SAYING “FIX THE GAME” SHUT THE FUCK UP !!! THEY KNOW THERE ARE BUGS, GLITCHES, AND ETC. THERE ARE MORE UPDATES TO COME ALSO ITS TWO MONTHS AFTER THE GAME HAS BEEN RELEASED AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT A NEW GAME COMES WITH BUGS AND GLITCHES SO STOP YOUR COMPLAINING, PLAY THE GAME THEY PUT THERE TIME AND MONEY INTO MAKING THIS PIECE OF ART AND WAIT FOR THE NEXT UPDATE. ALSO PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY UNLOCKED THE SHORTCUT BUNDLES AND WANT SOMETHING AS AN ALTERNATIVE YOU GET THE SADISFACTION OF KNOWING THAT YOU WORKED TO GET THE WEAPON INSTEAD OF CHEAT WITH A SHORTCUT PACK SO IN ALL STOP FUCKING COMPLAINING.

    So as a avid real life rifle shooter and the Dice team claiming to try to make the game as realistic as possible can you please tweak the snipers on hardcore so that every hit is not an instant kill. The accuracy of the recon class is stupid over powered. It is next to impossible to hit a moving target runningtthrough the bush at 200m but i continuously get blasted and one shot killed from these guys just blindly shooting in my general direction. Thank you

    Free weapon shortcuts!!?!?!?! What about those off us who have unlocked all weapons already, is there an alternative!?????

  • conquest98 01.30.14 at 11:05

    I have played BF4 for almost 100 hours, built out most guns and vehicles. I am very frustrated and disappointed with BF4 after a pretty good experience playing BF3 for over 1051 hours.

    I expected some degree of realism in hardcore mode. Instead, I see:
    1. Soldiers soaking up .50 caliber rounds,
    2. Chain guns that almost cannot kill anyone,
    3. Tank rounds fired at peoples’ feet and they run away,
    4. Heat seeking missiles that even fired in pairs, cannot kill an enemy helicopter,
    5. Invisible “shields” around tanks and soldiers, just like Star Trek.

    This is battlefield fantasy.

    I wanted and expected some realism, at least in hardcore mode. I wanted something approximating the lethality of a real battlefield. I’m tired of arcade games.

    BF4 looks like some sort of hybrid combining COD, Halo, and Star Trek. It’s not what I expected and to say I’m disappointed is an understatement. I don’t even feel like powering on my XBox tonight. I’ve gotten to the point that I actually hate the game and rarely enjoy playing it.

    I could go on but my experience with EA Games is that the company makes up its own mind about what players want, so this post is just one of many you’ll likely ignore, even if I’ve taken the time to write it politely and to accurately express my disappointments.

    For all of the reasons stated above, and no matter how many bugs you fix, I don’t think I’ll be back. If there is a better game, I’m going to buy it. If not, I’ve got a life. But I’ve had enough of EA Games, its products, and its attitude.

    I’d ask you to change my mind about your company, your games, and your attitude toward your customers, but I’ve done that before and never received a response, so I don’t expect one now.

    Prove me wrong. Contact me. Tell me how it’s going to be different in the future. If you do, I’ll listen. If you don’t, I’m finished with EA Games.

      I reached that point today as well and posted a rant to them on Facebook where they almost always reply. I still love DICE as a developer, but EA needs to leave them alone.

    I would like to start by saying that you guys at EA have successfully created LITERALLY the WORST game I have EVER played. I loved Battlefield 3 but never bought premium for it. Figured I had no reason to believe that I wouldn’t love Battlefield 4 either and went and bought premium for it. I have never been more wrong in my life. Your piece of crap game has frozen on me more in the past 2 weeks I have had it than all my other games combined. I played campaign and got to the next to last mission and decided to take a break for a while, so I saved it and started playing online. The game then froze on me and I had to restart my system. When I turn it back on, it gives me an error message and will not save my campaign and settings and says I have a corrupted file. I also, continuously get kicked from servers out of nowhere, ill be playing the game and out of nowhere a black loading screen will pop up. People kill me in one shot, whereas it takes me almost a full magazine. Multiple times I have spawned and been invisible except my pistol floating in the air and it wont let me switch to my primary of any other weapon I have. and to top it off, many, many, many, many times it wont let me shoot an enemy until he has turned and started lighting me up. then I get two of three shots off but get slaughtered. its not my controller causing this seeing as to how it is brand new and the incident has happened while I have used both controllers. The list goes on and on. So, thank you guys, for the waste of $110. I really do appreciate it. I will NEVER by another EA game again. Maybe I will check back in a month or two and maybe you fucktards may have actually done what you are fucking paid to do. Maybe.
    Sincerely,
    One Pissed Off Customer

    Hey Dice, loosing hit markers and crosshairs is happening on ps4 too, not just on pc( like stated on the control room blog) Also, I’ve noticed since the last update/patch, I have been getting a lot of black loading screens when joining into a server. Apparently I’m in the game until i get kicked from not doing anything, but all I see is a black screen with a loading symbol in the top right corner.

    Oh and I can’t forget the most important. In the control room it says the one shot kill is fixed on all platforms, but it is happening on ps4! To a lot of people and all the time!

    Thanks for everything and I hope I’m not coming off the wrong way. I truly do appreciate what you’re doing.

  • Trunen 12.22.13 at 02:12

    Hey Dice, here’s some other ”goodies” for the fix list…
    1. One shot kills
    2. Error msg ce-34878-0 (yes I know you’re working on one and two, but they really piss me off)
    3.grenades killing you through levels above you( operation locker: all around C point of conquest large)
    4. Grenades falling through the floors.( operation locker staircase, siege of Shanghai top of buildings: between d and e)
    5. Not seeing hit detection when shooting enemies: mostly noticed with the ak5c carbine.

    I’m drawing a blank on some others out of frustration, but I’ll keep checking the blog for the upcoming patches and praying these will be fixed soon.

    Thanks for your time and I know you guys are trying very hard to fix all the issues; it can be very frustrating though. Merry Christmas.

  • Trunen 12.20.13 at 16:11

    Dice, I’m truly appreciating all of the updates/patches, but for everything that is holy FIX THE ONE SHOT KILLS!!!!!! I’m so tired of shooting someone with a entire mag just for them to shoot one round and kill me. I can deal with all the other problems, just fix this PLEASE!! This is totally wrecking the game for me and so many others. PLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE FIX THIS.

  • be0wulfe 12.19.13 at 04:12

    Can’t even join a match via Quick Match, Server Browser join works less than half the time. I can play from a couple to a few minutes then I get kicked. I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, power cycles (all BS troubleshooting btw), sent in traces and pings (which indicate one of your hops is completely dorked), Medium NAT type – nothing. All this on top of the Premium Package.
    t this point, almost a month into it, I’m returning the game for a full refund and now I get to chase YOU around for weeks trying to get a refund on Premium.
    And I won’t be back for future releases, which is a real shame since I always preferred BF to CoD.
    Oh well.
