I didnt see the FR request MrGuster so I sent you one. Does it not appear as a message anymore?

I tried to play Second assault last night. I could only find 1 server even with NO filters on. I played through about 3 rounds but does everyone else see the same thing?

Really there is no point releasing China Rising until they sort out the maps already released.

You won't see a friend request in the traditional way anymore which is honestly quite dumb on MS's part. When you first turn on your One, look at the screen that has your friends on it. Right below "Friends" on the left, there is a new tab called "Followers". If there is a little man in the top right of this tab, you have new followers/friends. If you select this one, they will be the first ones listed. You can then select them and add them as friends. That is how you have to do it now.

Quick browse of Reddit shows that pretty much no one can play the DLC. There are lots of Premium members that can't even download it.

Thats crazy. Why change it?

I do think I had to manually tell the xbox to download the maps from somewhere but sorry I can't remember where. That might explain why all the servers are empty.

Metro was still a massacre. It was just M320 and grenade central. Not a lot of fun trying to get up stairs at Bravo with 32 people on the other team throwing grenades at you.

I haven't been able to find any second assault matches.  I tried the air one and it says I don't have the DLC.  I cannot get into a conquest match either.  Like I said, the servers are a hot mess right now.  Unless y'all know something I don't....

Maybe this is a silly question, but do you have premium? You need it to play these maps.

Not a silly question.  I do have premium.  Maybe the maps didn't download properly.  I don't know.  However, they have double XP on right now, so I'm soaking that up playing Rush.

I'm not going to get Premium until most of the game is fixed. I have it on PC and as far as I am concerned it is a waste as the PC version of BF4 is borked. I'm finding the XB1 version is more stable.

yeah, I wish they stayed the old way for adding friends, or at least give us some form of notification. I believe it is on the list that Major Nelson submitted to the team from people's requests. As well as notifications that someone has signed on.

what a crock.  I'd like to help them investigate!  I went to BF4 add ons in the Xbox one menu and it said I had them downloaded.  Yet, I cannot get in...

samething happened to me.  I just went and knocked out CoD: Ghosts on veteran.  It is not hard...they really Nurfed it.  Even "hard" on BF4 isn't that hard.

Ghosts on veteran was a breeze. I think I died a handful of times through the whole game. Now, BF3 on hard blew, I never bothered after I died a million times right near the beginning.

I don't think I ever tried BF3 on hard.  The problems in the release turned me off from the game.  I would bail from BF4, but I am kind of invested with premium.  I'll stick with it...for now anyway.

The way friends are presented now is horrible. I think I added MrGuster and PitifulBean. Its clunkier and slower than the old way. From what I can tell there is no way to add a profile or description.  I don't need big graphic images of the person or the games they play, just give me a simple text list.  About the only thing I like is being able to watch recent videos from anybody.   Anyway I've no doubt it will be improved pretty soon by MS.

I didnt even bother trying to get into second assault games last night, I got steamrollered in about 6 Rush games in a row instead.

Yeah, I was able to join you towards the end, but it put me on the other team.  You got me a few times!

Wow I'm amazed I didnt think I got many kills at all. There was one round of Paracal Storm where a rank 94 spent the entire game in the boat. He went something like 40-2. I was doing 5% damage with the default rocket launcher.

Well, I am dead in the water now.  The game won't even start for me.  I contacted EA and they were no use at all.  Restart your XB1.  Check internet.  I'm sorry, everything works, so just be patient with us.  You just can't make this stuff up.

I had this last night. I removed the disk then turned off the xbox. Then I turned it back on and inserted the disk. Game ran for me finally.

Its crazy having 5 versions of the game + new map packs launching. WAAAAAY more than they can handle.

I tried uninstalling the game and re-installing it.  No joy.  I guess I will be playing Ghosts until they fix it.  They did send me a code for three gold battle packs.  If I ever get back into the game, maybe those will be nice.

Try a hard reset. Press the power button on the front of the X1 for 5 seconds

I have been playing BF4 on X1. Feel free to send me a fr, my gt is SILENT EVIL74. Most of my online buddies haven't made the leap yet, so I am definitely looking for people to play with.

I'm not saying you're right or wrong about that, but is there any evidence of that, or is it just speculation?

So I just won an Xbone from Mt. Dew last night. I'll be trading in my 360 copy and getting the Xbone version from Gamestop here in a couple weeks. They said 8-16 weeks for shiping on the Xbone, but a friend of mine got his in 2 weeks.

Nicely played!  I never win anything.  You should buy lottery tickets.  :-)
