    The final straw Dice/EA

    Ok so I've defended BF4 to the hills when everyone has moaned and complained how broken and $#@! it was as a result, because I felt it wasn't that bad. The problems were blatant but not unplayable.

    I have myself racked up 100-120 hours online and have absolutely loved every second. But tonight may have just put me off forever.

    I've been playing with a friend all night and was enjoying myself a lot.
    He left so I was left to play alone, I went to server browser and noticed new maps!
    I navigated to one to see the price of the DLC with a possibility of purchasing. To replay Caspian and Metro on next gen would have been fantastic after all, I'm sure.
    The map packs were inaccessible and labeled as 'NULL' in the store. So ok maybe I'm not playing tonight, sure enough that's absolutely fine.

    However in my search for the platinum I do require a set amount ok kills with the M1911 pistol for a trophy. Imagine my delight when (as I haven't unlocked it yet due to lack of pistol use) I noticed the FREE handgun shortcut DLC.
    Fantastic!
    So I downloaded, and installed whilst in game and searched for a new game.

    I didn't even equip the M1911 pre-match because I didn't even process that I had it, I was just eager to get another round in before bed.
    Without checking my class I spawned not noticing that my gun wasn't the same model, no camo, different reticule. I was completely oblivious.

    Until the point I 'unlocked' a rocket launcher...
    But I've already completed the set?
    So naturally, when I died I checked the class options.

    EVERY single gun apart from the initial ones, every grenade, gadget, secondary was locked. As though I was level 1 and this was my first game on battlefield.
    I paused, myself, nor any opponents or team-mates had their level alongside their name.
    My battlelog won't connect so I can't check if I've been reset.
    I back out, try again, same scenario.
    I turn off the console, same scenario.
    I'm sincerely hoping that the server just needs to catch up with itself and everything will be ok in the morning.
    For now, I'm going to bed an INCREDIBLY angry and disappointed person.

    tl;dr: downloaded handgun shortcut pack, progress in multiplayer completely wiped, no unlocks. Unsure if level has been effected.

    Also inb4: hurrr durrr earn your handguns this is why you shouldn't take shortcuts lol

    $#@! man I'm so disappointed in DICE/EA right now. I'll give this some time but if my $#@! isn't restored I am selling up and getting Ghosts.

    apparently, this has happened to a few people. or so i've read :/

    im sure they'll get around to fixing it....unless it was a requirement of the DLC.

    The final straw Dice/EA

    It seems absolutely unbelievable Fiji. I'll give it abit of time because I don't want to completely overreact but if this turns out to be a genuine, irreversible problem then I will wash my hands completely with this title.
    I may wipe my ass with it too.

    Edit: in reply to a condition of the DLC. I can't see it;
    It doesn't make such consequences clear. (At least prestiging on cod you get like 3 warnings)
    AND I don't even have any (except the first) handguns unlocked.
    No clue.

    It's happened to me a few times... Usually fixes itself when I close the application and restart it.

    As mentioned I did that, and restarted the console
    Multiple times.
    As also mentioned I'll try again in the morning and post an update here. It's entirely plausible after all that it's just playing catchup and will be fine given a short period of time.

    New map packs are exclusive to premium members for 2 weeks at a guess maybe downloading the handgun shortcut has $#@!ed up your level though as stated it did happen to quite a few this week but seems to be a temporary thing

    Haha I mentioned this the other night lol. It seems to happen when you join a game via quick match, try server browse and your unlocks will be there.

    The servers are just acting up lol, it's not the free hand gun/dmr packs that are causing it

    Things were perfect until it was downloaded, I mean I played in excess of like 10 games absolutely fine
    Until I downloaded it, THEN I encountered problems.

    Also I never ever ever search for a game via quick match, so it isn't that.

    I'll tell you if it's sorted, but I literally woke up about a minute ago. I'm not going on the PS4 for about an hour; I'm doing my morning ritual of browsing the forums, reading the news etc whilst lying in bed atm

    Yes, it is an EA thing, they are entirely unreliable.

    Yeah I wouldn't either. I think it's free for everyone in two weeks.

    I read it wrong. Thought they were doing something nice for people for dealing with the $#@! that occasionally occurs with this game

    This used to happen quite a few times in BF3. Sometimes some servers would glitch out and become unranked making everyone on the server a "level 0". The only way around it was to find a new server since your progress wouldn't be saved. Seemed to happen the most on sundays. Hell, there was a time when everyone had no stats EVERY sunday in BF:BC2. We used to call them "no stat sundays". I guess sundays aren't a good day for EA/DICE lol.

    Sorry about that. Nothing worse then losing progress. Proud to say I've avoided all EA games so far...

    This happened on my guest profile. All the unlocks are now locked, nothing would reset it. Closing out the game, log out of profile, turn off and back on. None of it was working. But if you go on my name, I still had all my unlocks.
