[QUOTE="Admartian, post: 6305175]Well at least we know if this happens, not to panic. :snicker

Thanks anyway LM.[/QUOTE]

This thread is exactly the reason why I didn't panic and start one just like it when the same thing happened to me this afternoon! :D

[QUOTE="OregonViking, post: 6305812]That makes sense. They throw you into the ocean without teaching you how to swim. To start off, the first set of weapons is terrible & the beginning of the game is a legit grind without buying weapons. Not to mention the totally unexplained mod system. As soon as you build effective weapons & level up your frame to use the powers(On my Mag the pull ability sends them tumbling towards you so you can smash them melee style OR the crush ability has an AoE effect when I get caught in a crowd of 15 people it often saves my ass- they fly into the air slowly being crumpled into a tiny ball as their armor is crushed around them- I love it).

The weapon selection, level variety & color variety is awesome. Significant amount of rich end game content & long term playing time. On top of that the game is still being developed constantly adding new content, warframes, weapons & levels. I'd much rather support Digital Extremes the company that developed Unreal, Unreal Tournament & Bioshock than EA the company that constantly screws gamers. BLEH.[/QUOTE]
i'll give it another try. what about the difficulty? is it going to get harder eventually? is there more to it than corridor crawling?

The more people that get PS4's, the more people that are going to get Battlefield 4. All the ranked servers are filling up all the time, guess that means 64/24.

It occurs to me why this is causing so much panic with PS4 gamers. I believe Battlefield 4 is the first console game to have an almost full featured server browser comparable to what PC games have had for over a decade, so console gamers don't understand how server browsers work. It has also been a characteristic of DICE games since Battlefield 1942 that ranked servers will start getting full all the time (when the game is popular for about 2 years). Now there is a queue message if you use the server browser to find full sessions. Just customize the server browser only for ranked servers with empty slots and you won't see many. It's mainly Quick Match Conquest that is not going to find open slot servers, so it will look for unranked next, and that is what is starting to happen.

Strange thing is there are ranked servers that always have open slots and sometimes don't fill up during the match.

[QUOTE="Yuuichi, post: 6305270]I have been manual searching all day because when you get the bug drop because nothing you do counts. Just sucks now because i get in games with really good players, or is that imagination and BF does not quick match sort based on skill?[/QUOTE]

I used quickmatch once in BF3 and it put me in a shitty server so not used it again, I prefer using a full browser it gives YOU more control over the games YOU want to play, low ping max players and so on.

If this helps. It happened to me 3 times before I downloaded the handguns and none since. This was a few days ago.

That's pretty funny OP, it happened to everybody 2 days ago the stat servers were down and everybody had their first guns with attachments (for some reason) but no unlocks for weapons or vechiles. I had fun while nobody in the mini helicopter had lock on weapons, it was all machine guns :)

It happened a lot during the BC games, quite a lot less in BF3 n only once so far in BF4 that I know of.

As for the map packs, you got to be a premium member to have access to the maps (which will grunt you even more maps down the line) or wait 2 weeks and then you'd be able to buy those 4 new maps by itself.

Definitely has nothing to do with the hand gun dmr dlc. I was the first to report this on the forums, soon after I switched to a Conquest server and all was well. After about 2-3 maps we went back to domination servers and everything was good again. It happens at random, I don't believe it's the influx of new players causing it. It's just EA servers fucking up

glad to hear it was fixed LM, i had my campaign playthrough wiped because of that stupid corrupt error, i was only two mission away from beating it on hard WHILE getting the points too. after that, my ps4 decided not to read the disc once. that was enough for me to get rid of the game. i miss it though, but i didn't want to take a chance of it fucking up my ps4. maybe if they put it free on PS plus i'll get it again

the problems were getting less but they are back to being more now with the new expansion.

but less crashing lately though. however, more times my game just gets stuck at loading. so...

overall i can't leave BF because COD does not provide with the depth BF4 has.

BF3 is child's play compared to BF4. I might still get COD but as a secondary shooter.

This always happen with DICE games, shedloads of bugs and issues that take ages to get fixed, BF3 they mostly fixed the bugs and stuff when they released the DLC packs. It is why I have not bought BF4 yet.
