OK, so I have had a morning/afternoon full of conquest games since my "fixes". I had one crash on Flood Zone and black ooze on Hainan, but I did finally finish off my ENG kit and have started on the Support kit.

I have the 1x IRNV scope on my AK-5C so I have been getting many spotting ribbons. It's weird how on an open map it sometimes does/does not go into IRNV mode. Still trying to decide which I like best, the compensator, muzzle brake or heavy barrel. I tend to win more CQB gun fights with the compensator.

I'm looking forward to the start of double XP tonight and hope my game stability remains solid.

I might be on later tonight, and probably on tomorrow. With many of you gone I'll might have to play other game types this weekend like Domination and TDM.

I'm up to 260 transport vehicle kills. Don't know what it is about roadkilling, but that sh1t is fun. Golmud Railway is great map for that.

Meh, it's not like it takes as long to level up in BF4 like it did in BF3. To me all this 2x XP BS does is make any stat on battlelog a meaningless number since so many people scores and SPM's are inflated due to all the 2X xp. I have been saying since BF3 that they really need to find a way to not calculate XP bonuses into you SPM...IMHO it is the only way to get an accurate number in the SPM column...not that I really care about stats but it would be nice to be able to use them as a measuring stick of sorts.

I think the 2xp is only recorded as far as your total score toward any unlocks and your rank. The score reported as far as other stats and your position in the team score at the end of a match, are your base score(s).

We'll either something's up or I just got better because right now I'm rockin an approx. 950 spm and in BF3 I hovered right around 600. All this is telling me they dumbed down this game for the masses and IMHO some of the core gameplay that made the BF franchise what it is today is suffering.

Bf3 had 2 spm under your stats. In bf4 I can only find one. The spm you see includes all ribbons and medals. It just takes your final overall score and divides it. In bf3 it did this as well but it also showed a general spm which was only your game score and nothing else added. The difference is huge. I agree with smigro, with all the xp bonuses from battle packs the spm is inflated right now. Hopefully bf4stats adds the general spm. I always enjoyed that stat when seeing my progress

Lots of double xp and constant xp boosts will pump up those numbers. More players, vehicles, flags = more points. Seems like every game you're at the top of the leaderboard, so not surprised you're scoring.

Not sure I understand the dumbed down or core gameplay suffering comments. Dumbed down in what way, and what core game play has been affected?

Lately I haven't been using boosts so I don't level up so quick. Think Dice went a bit overboard on the number of boosts you get, but I don't think it makes a difference either way.

I'm not aware of double xp for everyone, I thought it was for people who bought at Gamestop and got a code on their receipt. I would love it, though.

That sucks man. I wish I had answer for you.

You seem to be the only one regularly crashing. Has to be your console right? I'd exchange it for another one at this point.

Maybe dumbed down was a bad reference. What I mean is they are making it too easy. In BF3 I probably took me close to 600 hours or more to get my colonel 100 shitbucket and some of my friends have done it in less than 150 hours on BF4. I have no problem making unlocking guns easy because no one wants to grind to unlock guns, but part of what kept me going in BF3 was to get my shitbucket and that will be lost in BF4.

As far as core gameplay...the vehicles man, they are screwed up. Tanks and IFV's aren't too bad (although I do miss having a third seat on the MBT) but air vehicles are completely useless. You can have good runs in a little bird if you have a repair crew, but the attack choppers aren't even used. I was saying the other night that it's funny on BF3 with 12 people you could never get the attack chopper because everyone wanted to fly it. On BF4 I constantly see the attack chopper sitting in the spawn because no one wants to use it with all the fire and forget launchers and counter measure being broke.

On top of that,mints the weapons. Not that they shoot bad or anything but they don't feel like they did in BF3. In BF3 guns had their own little distinctive characteristics and in. BF4 most of the guns quite frankly feel alike. Now all of this can be fixed via patches, but it just seems this game was rushed out the door and I think we the consumers deserve more.

I sent you a FR on the XBone but I guess you have to send one back. I do not like the way friend requests work on the XBone.

Smigro... I will do the XBone invite tomorrow.

OK... Sony is recommending 2 things to do from here.

- switch to a digital download of the game incase the issue is related to something being wrong with my disc. They had me try playing a blu-ray movie to confirm the disc drive was working properly.

- if the digital download fails to resolve, they will replace my system, or I can do the replacement at my local Gamestop.

So, I'm going to get started with the DDL.

I have broken the rule about not using the vehicles as a one-way taxi with that chopper because I see it just sitting there and I know there is no one organized enough to use it.
You would have to be able to hop from squad to squad getting repairs, maybe it'd be valuable in esports, but not on blueberry matches.

Chatting with EA right now on the phone (they called back within 30 minutes).

CE-34878-0 is, as we kinda already knew, a generic sony PS4 hardware fault Dice and Sony are still trying to figure out. The tech person said there was more info but they could not disclose due to a non-disclosure agreement, but it sounds like it mainly Sony's problem. Could be BS.

They said an update/fix for China Rising is coming. They also said DICE is planning some kind of customer gift to help compensate for the issues players are having.

My EA support person was very nice and I asked for a little "summin-summin" and she was able to give me a silver battle pack, after she asked her manager.

Still hoping I can get rolling tonight with the DDL version of BF4.
