I would like to say that I don't know any technical crap but when I first poster on this thread I was caught up in hate hype , but after what I read from verse If u compare it to say gutting your first deer the deer being the game The new engine being the first time also with the new consoles adds more problems . Think about it. Millions of people trying to play at one time there will be bugs


Give them a break

So if I sell you a time-machine for 100.000, and then it doesn't work..i can just go all like "well man, its my first time machine ever! cut me a break, offcourse it doesn't function as well as i wish yet....sry no money return. wait for a fix!"

k

But for real: Verse raises some good points, most of which are perfectly agreeable. But the thing that I just can't agree with is accepting bad endresults. When you're at a normal job, you get yelled at for doing bad work. With games nowadays it seems to be acceptable as long as, let's say, 60% of the game works as intended...
That's the part that's fundementally flawed. Yes, it's hard to do shit right. But don't keep publishing things of which you know they're broken...that's why they're getting double-sued right now :P

I have to say that BF3 always ran smoothly for me, and apart from a period of 2 days where I could not play, three months after release, I did not encounter a lot of serious bugs like the M26 Dart glitch. I've found BF3 to have been a really smooth launch for my standards, but maybe I was just lucky.

In comparison BF4 was a massive failure in terms of bugs. The sheer amount, was incredible, as was the amount of rather hard bugs that prevented people from playing totally. Still the comparison between games a decade ago has a couple of mistakes. Even ten years ago, internet connections were not that widely spread and broadband connections that could even download patches only a coupl of 100mb big were not common at all. Nowadays patches can be published on a day-to-day basis, and almost instantly the biggest portion of the playerbase can access it, this of curse is doubly true for online games.

True enough, in these times, a game released in such a state would receive a huge publicity hit. Just think of Gothic 3. 5 years before that the only source for patches basically were the CDs you got along when buying gaming magazines. The internet took a lot of stress from the Devs. A start like BF4 though naturally feels too rushed though, the failure and bugs were jsut too big and will likely be a renown hit for EA and not so much DICE.

If we draw parallels to DICE and BF, this would be your 4th time machine and the previous 3 worked kinda ok, but the 4th time machine kinda fucked up and you were telling people to wait for a fix.

@paddyotool
4th try is fucked up = I'm disappointed.

If it wasn't for Team Symthic I would have never bought BF4. If TeamSym had moved to Planetside I would have followed. Same if it was COD, and if it would move to Titanfall. I buy games to play with friends, and as long as I can I don't fully regret my buys.

To be clear, I intended to wait for first dlc to be released before buying BF4 because I thought the game would be bugged as hell at launch and will be mostly fixed in the time frame. Looks like not.

It's even worse when you know they cut out the Levolution events on CR to publish it in time. That was their key marketing argument... I call it a fail when you try to sell a horse without even hiding the mule and simultaneously sawing its legs.

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)


I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you


+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

I once tried to burn a bridge, but due to the half-assed levolution implementation it kept standing up just fine.
