    The irregular:


    But what really takes the biscuit:


    There is a continuous latency going on, not usually as big as the above. Just load spectate and watch a first person angle of someone shooting someone moving.


    The BF Player Base

    Hey, only 420 hrs. I learn quick, and what I learn, I can remember ;)

    The thing is, your only experience is post Humble Bundle. Gradually there have been console players migrating after seeing there was a significant difference of gameplay experience between platforms. Then you know the fresh meat that was the humble bumblers. Believe me when I say that I was frequently challenged in general play while using random weapons, and it's probably the restoration of the status quo.

    Absolutely, badies, blueberries and bumblers, whatever you want to call them, they ruin the enjoyment of the game. So I work my team and play off them (bait them), babysitting them and looking after them, all they need to be able to do is not die too easily. Some of the best fun I've had is just watching over Digi, TellTale, Dom or whomever while they push the objective. I simply protect them form being attacked from the directions they can't watch all the time. Sometimes though there is just no hope, as there are a lot of players out there that just go for the one cheap kill, if they are lucky they get two; and you can join a server with different proportions of these players. Sniper wannabes, vehicle taxiers and the trolololers, too many of them and it's pointless. A note on Oh My Guts TDM, It's run by a clan of good players, and even better players frequent it. I've seen proper competitive names working on their aim in there.

    I did used to believe what some here will say, and that is to man up and play better. However there is a subtle difference between tactically useful teammates and the incompetent, it's all to easy to do the wrong thing, but when a team can't simply stay alive - it's done. Smart people can use real strategy, it's a genuine game of chess. Speaking of chess:


    BF4 Vehicle Unlocks

    Why? It's equivalent to trying to play chess without some of the pieces 'unlocked', or poker etc.

    Jesus this is becoming ******* annoying, the lag is one thing, crashes are another, but no freaking sound has just about tipped me over the edge.

    Losing a kill or dying because of lag is expected, dying because you cant hear a damn thing is another

    raging quite hard at the moment and i am not normally like that

    Apparently during the day the Beer n Bullets server is fine. 64 players no lag. Come the evening and it lags really badly.

    They reset the server daily, I get the feeling that there are several game clients on a single box and the evening the demand increases.

    If the box has too many game clients and connections being made to it then lag will occur.

    I personally would have gone with Multiplay but wasnt my call.

    What host is the Ziip server using?

    What annoys me more though are people who have a go at you for complaining it doesn't work (because it works fine for them).

    Those people should be banned from internet.

    I've just played about 2 hours worth, and the only crash I had was the 'Deploy' button crash (where if you hit it more than once it crashes out).

    BETTER but not perfect.

    Best thing I like about BF4 is the fact you can get 'Kill Assist Counts as Kill'.

    Better than 'Kill Assist 99' FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    I havnt encountered that one, but maybe thats because I just double click the place/person I want to spawn too?. Always seems to work ok so might be worth a try

    Once a few patches went through the Beta was pretty solid and yet this seems to be such a mess!

    Those videos are proper rage bait, I best stay away till it is fixed lol

    Pretty much the same here. Since changing the servers that I play on I'm much happier with BF3 than I was last week and am definitely in no rush to install BF4, whether I can run it or not.
