Will the server update finally implement queuing? Joining up with you guys is painful.


I dont know, someone said they had it but I didnt see the option and checking battlelog says they added it for the PC. I just join in as the commander then wait for room and join in. What I do is leave the game and right away press the join button on battlelog. Seemed to work so far.


Rumour is the Day 1 update for next gen is going to be a large one.

I just noticed on the jets that the 2 dont start off with the same guns. Could be why one feels stronger than the other. The stealth jets start off with 20mm and the attack have the 30mm. You unlock the 25 and 30 for the stealth. Trail, not sure if you have the 30 unlocked already and noticed the difference still or maybe you just kind of forgot about that.


I am working my way through the jet unlocks, I have 102 points with the stealth and 547 with attack. I'll have that maxed out in time for Bad Company 4. Where is Air Superiority when you need it.

yeah i noticed that, i barely have any unlocks for the stealth jets, I'm curious if the steath jet 25mm and 30mm will have reload magazines like the scout heli when you change from minigun to 25mm cannons. I know in battlelog the rate of fire will be slower, so I imagine they wont be a powerful as the attack jet.


MPH, from my experience games like what you're commenting on are pretty rare, this guy is one of the better guys in the world in jets. He took out a ton of vehicles and had crappy enemy pilots, no one equipped any AA to reduce his effectiveness, he barely killed any infantry that were not in vehicles. All it would of took is some coordinated effort on the ground with stingers to keep him away, or a good jet pilot in the attack jet, or a slightly good pilot in the stealth jet to occupy him.


While I agree the attack choppers have been nerfed, especially the gunner, I really dont think a couple of people with stingers on the ground should be able to kill an elite pilot like that. I agree they should be able to damage his jet and keep him away from making multiple repeated passes or he will die and I think that's the case now. Remember this guy is an awesome pilot that is playing against a crappy team.

This. I used the iPad app (don't have a PC by my couch) last night to do server searches and joins for the first time. It's brilliant.
Best part is if the console is loading the map of a server you previously selected, you can choose another server on the battlelog app and the game will cancel that server load-in and switch to loading the desire one. Sorry that's combulated text, I'm tired.


Need to test if we tool around as commander and join from the battlelog app instead of quitting all the way out; or maybe a combo of quitting out and tapping join on the app to reduce the time and make sure to get a spot.

I agree that's a fair balance. Being able to take down an elite pilot means all of us average joes in a jet won't get 8 seconds on that bull. Being able to deter an elite pilot seems like a great balance target from DICE.


In obliteration, I'm not a fan of the air radar. Would be nice to get in a jet and tickle ground units before immediately going into the circle game.

Hopefully the next Battlefield is a return to the 2142 style, I really want to play that... Bad Company 3 can come after that in a rotation.

Was Premium on PSN available for pre-order Oct29 and before, during the $10 back for $50 or is there some other benefit to having it now, besides making 40 layers of boobs?

Man, I need to update my iPad so I can DL the BL app. I have it on my Razr, but the screen is a little small and really laggy.

Would anyone with spare time and a love for doing emblems want to try one of the following for me? I am thinking either '69 or '96 might be the easiest.

Had some really fun matches last night with everyone here, that last one was a grind and operation locker was total opposite how I thought the outcome would be. I thought we were going to get steam rolled at first. Man, obliteration can last anywhere from 5min to hours depending on the matchup between teams.


Noob question, is there a way to specifically join a server as commander when each team is full or does it automatically put you in an empty commander spot?

Yes you could of preordered it during the promotion. Thats what I ended up doing. I was going to wait but I figured another $10 for another game later on would be better.

Veteran answer. The way I do it ,and only way I know how, is through the server browser. I think its the square button brings you in as a commander. You cant pick your side but usually if you have friends in the game you will be the commander on their team. I just do a search for the server you guys are in. I just type in the numbers on the server name and its always the only or first one on the list.

Yeah that last one was a bear, it took way longer than I thought. At least we finally got the win!


Oh and don't think I didn't see your revenge comment on the previous page, son. I've got a blade with your name on it if you decide to start shooting me in the face again, BF3 style

Yea Crav I got Premium under the $10 back deal and now that you mention it, 40 layers of boobs sounds pretty enticing

When in the server browser settings, what do you select for "free slots"? I have tried everything and I either get all full servers or all empty servers and I forget how I had it set up on BF3 and don't have it anymore to check.

I'm running jailbroken 6.1.2, not iOS 7 on iPad 3, you mean you have iPad 1?

The server browser sucks right now, it shows all full and empty ones even though you have it unchecked.


To join in as commander you need to be a level 10 and for PS3 I think its the square button for commander. It says it on the bottom what button to press. I know X is to join and triangle is to see the server settings so it only leaves square.

I think the bf4 server browser is messed up. It doesn't filter number of available slots like bf3 does, and for some reason they make you scroll past 200 full servers to get to the one or two that have available slots. I'm not sure if any of this has changed since the updates though. If you want to join a game by yourself without friends just do quick game and then select the game mode you want to play.


Ha Gutter, I forgot about that or else I would of mentioned it last night. Even when you're on my team, standing right next to me, I get knifed instead of you. At least you killed that guy though
I'm sure youll get your knife opportunities on me, the game has only been out a week.

Yes, plenty of time for some good sparring

I got my first ever jet kills in any BF game last night on Hainan Resort using the guided missiles (I think that's what they were). I had no idea they came unlocked by default but since they were available, I used them and to my advantage. Only went 3-0 in that match (joined while match was in progress and all 3 kills were jet kills) but it felt like I really contributed to the win. It wasn't only a feeling of accomplishment but more like a feeling that I was able to help out in other ways other than just being infantry.

Unfortunately, yes I do have an aging and decrepit iPad1 and I have not updated it in over a year so I think I am still on 5.x.x. I am waiting for it to completely stop working before I get another tablet...been thinking about the Kindle Fire HDX when it is available because I have grown quite fond of the android network and the only tying me to apple is my songs in itunes that I downloaded into there.
