Yes, certain game types are fubar for me from time to time, i try to get into a mode that I can.  I can join friends games though of that game type.  Ive also had a prob accepting an invite from the title screen.  It seems to lock me up.

PC servers are lagging for me. There was an update today and now there are widespread game crashes.

The " community " are pissed, and I for one am a frustrated beyond belief - but why did I expect different this time ? In this abusive relationship, we always go back to EA / Dice for another slap.

Someone sent me a message and told me to delete my BF4 Beta from my box.  Also something about the support class running anything beyond default stuff can cause some issues.

I had numerous freezes related to the support class.Always seems to happen when I change to one of the unlocked "field upgrades" When i change them back to one of the offensive or defensive field upgrade no freezing.

So yesterday was a good day with BF4 on PS3  no freezes, no lag . Did have so graphic glitches but that was about it.

Actual question (and I can see how it might get some feathers up), but I saw this on Reddit earlier today.  Is it really this bad, or is too much being made over it?

Wait about six months, the game will be perfect.

This is way I didn't buy it day one. Six months from now it will be awesome. Plus I have no HD space for this game.

This absolutely kills me.  You're the second person to say that the game is borderline useless until 6 months after its release.  I used to openly mock this, especially coming from a AAA title, until my AAA title of choice did something equally stupid in its most recent incarnation (Halo).

This stuff is killing me on gaming. CoD, Halo, Battlefield and others all have the same issue which is they just don't have enough time to finish games. Halo was a 3 year cycle, but now its 2 and even when they had 3 years they almost didn't finish their games. I would much rather wait an extra year for a finished game. Now with mirco downloads companies can make a lot of extra cash as long as the game is good and pulls people in.

Perfect description. Seriously flawed.

I got to play for about 30 minutes today before the server I was on took a dump. 

 

Is anyone else having sound issues? Vehicles, gunfire, and people suddenly go silent for no reason.

What LaLa said.

I haven't played it since the release but from talking to friends and what people are saying here, it really is still that bad. I hope they fix it soon, I would really like to play it without getting frustrated.

Wait, someone agreed with something I said?  I was just fucking around with Dixon.  It was a comment an old fanboy made once.

With how many bugs there are, it's going to take 6 months to fix it......

Im getting probably 1 freeze every 4 hours.  My freezes seem to occur when I accept invites from friends, instead of joining directly into their room from the multiplayer screen.

After last nights problems I resorted to trying some of the solutions posted on the battlefield forums and none of them worked.  I even tried the AMD beta video drivers.  I haven't been able to get through a complete game since early Saturday.  I am frustrated as hell and more stressed out from trying to get this fucking game to work.  So much for gaming to relieve stress and have fun.

I played about 10 hours on 360 this weekend. I have seen a few glitches here and there such as no sound on vehicles after spawn and messed up ironsights. The game has only ever locked up on me when Hainan Resort loads, so as long as I avoid that map I'm fine.

Ok.Here is one. Played a game last night and did very well(rare for me on BF4) After the game I get MVP ribbon......but wait the scoreboard said I only had 4 kills and had me at the bottom of the team. I know for a fact that I had 4 kills in the last 2 minutes of the game. I had a game earlier in the weekend that I also got MVP and I was surprised to be at the bottom on that one too.

 

Also accidentally got under the map on the flood map.Near the gas station.I had to sucide to get out.

Two major bugs for me - multiplayer join freeze is annoying as it requires an xbox360 reboot; losing campaign progress is a major bug and PIA. I have lost my progress on the campaign TWICE due to corrupt game saves on my xbox360 hard drive over the last few days. This occurred after I had freezes trying to load the multiplayer lobby on various occasions, at least I think that's the culprit as I haven't had any other game save issues on other titles. I was going to just play BF4 until XB1 is out then buy COD Ghosts, but at this point, I'm going to buy Ghosts for the 360 tonight as BF4 is really annoying with the bugs.

Hainan Resort and Dawnbreaker freeze everytime. Obliteration mode froze the one time I tried to play. I lost about 1.5 hours multiplayer progress last night for no reason. I have now reached rank 12 three times. 2x xp on launch weekend didnt work.

If I buy a car and it only comes with 3 wheels would I accept that?

Hainan is about the only map that doesn't freeze on me (which is fine because it's a decent map).  Dawnbreaker is the worst though.  I've got maybe 1.5 games on it.  The full game I was able to play without a freeze, I enjoyed greatly.  It's a good map.  However, it typcially freezes within the first 2 minutes so I usually just quit out and join another server whenever it comes up.

I have managed one game on Hainan and none on Dawnbreaker.

I'm wondering if the publishers aren't putting crazy pressure on the studios to go with 1-year cycles, like the sports games do. What's funny is that I think it's really killing them even in the short term because it's not just us noticing it; even the Gamespots of the world are becoming increasingly critical of rushed games; BF4 only got an 8 which is no way near a very good grade. But then of course, if you're only making 250 million dollar games, you wanna make sure you get that ROI, right? It's like the movie industry: one bad movie can break a studio. Hopefully Activision doesn't mess with Bungie the way EA is messing with Dice because if Destiny is rushed I'm gonna be really really sad. And pissed. And I'll cry. And that's bad :-)
