Double XP for the whole month would be nice (doubtful that would happen) but it should be for at least a whole week, not just a weekend. Two days is too short of a time. Ex. I was unable to play last weekend therefore missed out on the event.

I've missed playing BF4 with you guys tremendously the last week or so despite the lag, rubberbanding and 0 health deaths, etc.

I need my BF fix pronto. Perhaps I'll be on tonight if I get home at a decent time but don't know how many of you guys will be on because of KZ Twozdays.

I'll be on, me no likely KZ.

Should I get the premium edition of BF4? Is it worth it?

Awesome! Now I just simply log in once a day for 28 days and I will have every unlock done. Sweet! Why bother playing....

If you see yourself buying all the map packs then yes, it would be cheaper than buying everything individually. Just at the risk of not liking some of the map packs since you don't know anything about them beforehand.

I think KZ has potential. I'm going to try to give it a chance tonight. I need to figure out how to play it before I pass judgement. I've played BF almost exclusively for MP since Halo 4 so I keep defaulting to the BF controls (unintentionally) no matter what I play right now.

Which reminds me, is there a preferred KZ controller layout (like veteran or legacy for BF)???

KZ and BF controls are identical except grenade is the opposite shoulder button and knife/duck are flipped. If your running Veteran on BF that is.

I'll be on tonight, my A50s replacement should be here today and I want to make sure everything is ok with them.

For me, I could deal with everything wrong in the game if the lag/rubberbanding was gone.


I am going to test out the pistol more tonight. Watching Tyrants vids makes me wonder if I just thought maybe it was something else. I could of just thought I wasnt releasing the trigger far enough to register the next pull.

I wonder what constitutes 'logging in to play' multiplayer? The days I don't have time can I just get into a game, quit and get the battlepack? Do you have to finish a match?

Cheap I know but I aint gonna pass up free goodies! Well technically none of it's free since I bough the game & premium :/

Never bought a map pack for BF3... How I look at it is - I paid 60.00 for the game to begin with. Now I have to pay another 50.00 (or buy them individually) for more of the same game and to allow me a bit of XP boost on the weekends? Pisses me off especially when they give us a half finished game to begin with.

I am ranting a bit yes - probably will buy the pack anyway. mad.gif

Same thought. Perhaps this is their attempt to stabilize the servers. Give everyone everything so a majority can move onto other games.

KZ took me close to 20hrs playtime before it started to click. My K/D was around .6 up until recently, and it took me forever to figure out the objectives. Guess I'm a slow learner.

Mine is @ .61 after one day of play. Had a couple of good rounds and just got routed one match, blindsided from every corner (something like 3-24 IIRC). I literally just jumped in and started mashing buttons to figure it out!

I took Tyrant & Nex's advice and customized 4 loadouts for all 3 classes. Might also have to try some classic warzone before jumping back into the 24 player variety to get the feel & get some unlocks too.

Yup



Yup. Daytime Wookies are TERRIBLE. One round today my side had squads going up to Juliet with one person per squad. Suffice to say it was a quick, losing match. The match above I got 6 kill cruise missile strike on some camping bush berry snipers.

Cravit8 was our commander one time and he scored over 10000 points. I didnt think it was possible for a commander to bang out that many. Good job on his part.

I was only able to get over 10K commander score once and that included 4 multi kill cruise missiles and squad wipe bonuses. The other big point bringers are good supply drop placement where you might earn several resupply ribbons. I wish there was a way one could remain as commander of a team game after game rather than flipping back and forth between teams. My commander scores for a "good team" usually run around 4-6K. If it takes me more than a few minutes to start earning enough points to award a squad promotion, I usually quit the game and look for another to join. Those big kill totals will usually come when the losing teams start camping tall buildings on Flood Zone, Dawn Breaker, Shanghai, etc. If you have enemy commander, you have to kinda hope he's a noob and wastes his proxy attack and EMP attacks.

Wondering... do kills in Commander Mode get added to your K/D? I assume yes but have not checked.

Rican21... I do believe the squad leader will earn squad points for attack/defend commands regardless of his location on the map. I have made it a habit of triggering the flag where my squad was located if they were not in the flag capping mood, such as when the squad is busy attacking vehicles leaving the spawn base, a favorite past time of out friends Abusive_Red and UtterDead. smile.gif. Hell, just following those guys around with ammo boxes will earn big points. smile.gif

I also had a pretty bad morning with the ACW-R not being able to win hardly any fights. I thing the problems was I have upped my game sensitivity so I can move my AIMED weapon around more quickly. The down side to this adjustment has been my twitching reflex going out the window and flipping left/right and up/down on the target while aiming in a fast, reflex encounter. I'll have to drop my sensitivity back down to around 15-18%, although I did like the increased aiming movement of running with 28-30% sensitivity.

I like the idea of weapon unlocks and daily battle packs in Feb. If I will have to pick only (2) weapon classes to unlock, I will have to seriously consider which (2) I will choose. Hmmmmm.....

OK... there was a map glitch on Lansing Dam at the E flag where a guy was under ground. He was swimming around, killing people with his pistol and planting C4, yet he could not be killed. He was right near the burned out car at the end of the E flag nearest that base spawn.

Have they already made some server mods to guns? I feel like the AK-5c is even stronger and the ACW-R weaker. It's probably just me but I thought it was way different than normal engagements. If I had to guess, it seems like stability is being rewarded more heavily.

I dont think we can choose. Grenades and pistols for everyone and the premium members get shotguns and DMR's. With all that I still dont feel appreciated.

What they should do in February in addition to all the other goodies they are giving away is have another 1 week of Double XP event, release Second Assault and fix once and for all the netcode. I'd be pretty satisfied with that.
lordxar5's Avatar lordxar5 06:09 AM 01-29-2014
The only thing to fix this mess is to fix the problems. I'm guessing it will take a couple more months and this appreciation is nothing more than plugging holes in a dam of losing players. I'm torn whether to even participate in this at all. On the one hand I'd hate to miss stuff but on the other I don't want them to think it makes things all better either.

Glad I did not waste the time working on unlocking my DMR's and shottie's.

Personally I think the netcode thing is burned into the FB engine and sadly and from what I am told that would mean no real way to fix it. One could hope, but honestly being it has been 4 months and not a peep about it leads me to believe otherwise.

Yes. Thanks I am seeing that full story now. Still, Pistols, DMRs and Shottie unlocks will be welcome. I figure I will take advantage of the full month of bronze and silver battle packs on both my PS4 and XBone soldiers, basically leaving just the sniper rifles and assault rifles for me to fully unlock.

Regarding my earlier post about primary weapon effectiveness... I think I'm going to try switching out the suppressor(s) for muzzle brake or compensator, then see what I see. I think it may well be the range penalty costing me the mid range battles I previously mentioned losing lately.

Regarding the airburst... can anyone comments on what max range typically works? I have been trying some extended ranges on the airburst without success so far. I assume it's because the farther away you go, you need to aim a little higher to account to small but inherent trajectory of the grenade.
