High Frequency Network Update

For the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms, we are adding something we nicknamed the “High Frequency Bubble”. Within a certain radius of the player, we add the possibility to update the clients at a higher rate from the server. What this essentially means is that the server will update the client on what is happening more often than before. This normally results in a smoother, more “correct” player experience.


The High Frequency Update is by default turned OFF in this release. You will have to enable this setting to take advantage of the improved networking. To support players with a limited bandwidth connection, we support three different levels: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH. Most players with a connection faster than 1Mbit upload and 1Mbit download should be fine using the HIGH setting. If you experience any issues, lower or turn off the setting completely.

Damn Lo, you give up on your Heat that fast that you changed your avatar? lol

Just an FYI, the adjustable trigger and stop mechanism does not work in BF. Reason is you need to fully depress the trigger for the vehicles.

@benjamin-benjami

I wonder how this would effect people who use the default control scheme that puts the fire on the bumper. Do you have to depress the trigger all the way to make it go also...or just shoot. Guess I will have to experiment tonight.

Man, I have been eyeing that one but have not caved because I don't know anyone with one...funny seeing 32GB on the front though. lol

Really want to get my MC on.

What's your Nintendo Friend Code (mine is PrankT)? Unless your family will mainly be using it, then no need to hand out the code. I just got a Wii U as well and am loving it. Between the Wii U and the emulators I've been playing on the Ouya, we are actually having a lot of in-house multiplayer gameplay with friends and family...something we haven't had in years.

Anyone on the fence should check out the awesomeness in this neogaf thread: Luigi sends notice that The Year of Luigi never ended...

I think its my gamer tag on the other systems. I will recheck again to make sure. I flew through the beginning just so I can update and play and forget exactly what name I put in. I agree its a blast. I've played for a few hours today and was just having a great time.

My brother sent me this. Just watch it from the 3:15 mark on to see the epicness that happens.

Not sure about WD, haven't put any time on it since I got it but I'm all about ahole drivers. In fact I just about got wiped out on the way home. Some broad wrecked out right in front of me on the way home. Narrowly missed her car by a deft lane change and soft brake as she skidded past me at over 70. Not sure how fast she was actually going but her car started the skid behind me in the left lane and ended up crossing to my lane in front of me. Time for some new shorts and cold beer...

My wife, who has never touched a gaming device in her life, was cracking up at work, apparently all day long at this video. I had to post it here, it's pretty funny. She particularly loves Luigi's mean mugging.

The game is a blast. I had fun all day playing it. I need an HDMI switch though. I officially have more devices than inputs.



You playing tonight?

Ballistic Shield video. Looks overpowered on the melee. Hopefully that gets reduced when it hits. Either way it does look like a lot of fun and a shield only lobby would be fun.

How do you get in the Beta on PS4 if you don't have BF4 at all ? Is there someway to sign up online ? I thought you just went to www.battlefield.com, and there was somewhere to sign up, but I'm not seeing it

I also think that instant access on the PS4 dashboard was stupid. Most normal folks were at work, niw it's closed and I'm sure a bunch if 14 year olds snatched it up.
