    hehe yeah that game's still sensitive to PB and manual upgrades, I guess that's something necessary for every new install, even after all those years they can't get it right...

    I was close to uninstalling the whole game lol, thought... I`ll ask the gurus before killing it :D

    It could at least give a reason why it was CTD, like "Error Punkbuster" would have been enough to give me a clue lol

    Almost all the issues when trying to join multiplayer
    And it doesn't work related or to punkbuster or to
    Battlelog plugin...

    I rarely play it, last time I fired BF4 up was last year iirc

    Doesn't seem to need the plugin for the browser anymore, had a toggle switch to play without it

    BF4 is still alive and kicking... hopefully years to come..
    It is still by far the best online TDM out..
    Really disapointed about BF1 :( Maybe TDM gameplay will be better. I dont know.
    Hope next BF release will be more like BF3/4.

    So, like many of you, I haven't played BF4 in about a year. After sorting out the punkbuster update (servers were kicking me) the issue I'm having now is I don't see any pings listed in Battlelog. All servers show dashes, no ping.

    I can connect to servers, but I get kicked by a punkbuster error. (I just updated it)

    I can't update Battlelog (If there is one) and I'm not sure what to try. Different browser? I see pings for other games.


    On a side note, to avoid the installation hassles of a 60GB game, I keep my BF4 installation folder on a backup drive when I'm not playing. I just move it to an SSD when I want to play again, makes install take minutes instead of hours.

    Yeah, will do that soon too probably. Did the same with BF3 when BF4 came out, after the first week I uninstalled the older game, just for the sake of knowing I won't play it anymore.

    This time around it will be a happy ending, getting rid of Battlelog :D

    I do think that Battlelog is a great idea, though it does have its quirks here and there. However, the UI, information displayed, and generally speaking, flexibility, is wonderful compared to plain old server browsers found in-game.

    Personally, having played the alpha and beta of BF1, I don't see myself picking it up. At least not until it hits a large sale or two. I don't really enjoy the game mechanic changes nor the two maps seen so far.

    You are right about that, in theory it would have been a great way, and I would have grown to it, wouldn't it have been troublesome browser plugins over and over, and some things not even working after years, I wouldn't have wanted to avoid it.

    They are incorporating it into battlefield.com anyhow now, but I think it's a good idea to seperate the stats from the game launching mechanic, so you can just play without bothering to have a browser running in the background that's keeping you from playing because you have to reinstall the battlelog plugin ;)

    I have just started plying bf4 again after a 9 month (or thereabouts) layoff. Have turned my sensitivity on the mouse down to about 6 to improve my accuracy and found I am at least passable on most maps.
    Was 100% going to get bf1, I have not played the beta, but I keep seeing people say they are not going to jump on the bf1 ship because they didn't like this or that about the gameplay. What is it that has changed for the worse? Can it be explained or do I just need to play the game to understand !

    In short:
    People want an all-ranges-OP assault rifle which will give you headshots from all distances with simple trigger tapping, which takes couple of weeks to learn.

    BF1, doesn't offer that Assault Rifle.

    If you get yourself EA access (which costs € 3.99 here) you get 10% off your BF1 purchase... so here it would be €13 off for €3.99 and you get to play the vault games too for a month. Shadowduke and others have brought that up in the BF1 thread.

    How is the old man handling nowadays? Might give bf4 a try. I just can't wait for BF1 :3

    Well I think an AR should be efficient at quite some range. They ruined BF4 imo with excessive spread increase, ...

    Wish they went the recoil route instead because recoil is laughably easy to control in BF4.

    I tried BC2 again some time ago and my God. You had to single shot at some ranges but hell, it WORKED. That's how AR's should be imo.
