V4 with BF4 stats coming soon

It's the time to release the new Symthic V4 with BF4 stats in a few days.
We're rolling it out at the same time than exclusive beta (assuming we get the beta stats in it without problems)


The BF3 stats missed some stuff and the stats weren't very useful for people who couldn't understand the numbers.
That's why we did things different this time.
We have a bunch of new sections like simple weapon comparison, simplified data, weapon info pages, multi weapon comparison, stats guide, vehicles etc.
Everything will support multiple attachments.


Simple comparison
lists advantages of selected weapons to easily find out the advantages without understanding all the data.


Simplified data has data in words instead of only numbers.
This way people who are new to symthic can learn a lot about weapon stats without understanding the numbers.


Weapon info pages gather all info about the weapon to one page.
Every single stat and number that affect the weapon can be found from there without forgetting accuracy plots, sight images and other info.

Multi weapon comparison
is a powerful tool you can compare up to five weapons at once, each with different attachments.

Stats guide will contain all info about the weapon mechanics and explain how they work.

Vehicle section will have obiviously vehicle stats. We have few symthic enthusiasts working on it, let's see if we can get it published at the same time than rest of the V4.



I'll be launching a closed beta test in a day or two.
Selected people will receive a private message with information about how to access the V4 beta.


Few screenshots (not everything is that polished yet)

I can't wait for this. Looks really good team :D . Thanks for all the hard work.

Getting me pumped for BF4.
Call me Siri. It makes life simpler. Also hate me. It makes Symthic servers run.

Sorry for my random absences, Soldier life takes priority.

I tried so hard to interact with it via clicking...but to no avail. :(

Will it protect against STD's?

I'm a fan of the show, but not a "Brony". I don't obsess over it, but I do watch it and enjoy it.

That's like saying "I suck dick, but I'm not gay."

I like the added multiple attachments, but in the screen shot I only see 2. Don't forget that you can have 3 attachments at a time that can affect stats. For example heavy barrel + angled forgrip + laser sight. I think the laser sight is the only thing for the accessory slot which can affect stats. So maybe you could have a checkbox for the laser, since you don't need a pull down menu.

Edit: I also noticed in the 5 weapon comparison it is showing a kind of bug with the belt lmg. As far as I know belt lmgs don't get a reload speed bonus for reloading with bullets still in the gun, hence the -1 value, but the comparison is showing it as if it was far superior to the other guns. Maybe you could put the empty reload speed in instead of the -1 and it would do the comparison correctly.
The fact that someone has an opinion, doesn't make their opinion a fact. Making just arguments first requires an acknowledgement of intellectual humility, while valid arguments require you to not commit fallacies of logic and rhetoric.

We noticed this bug today too and it will be fixed before release.
Thanks for the feedback :)

What untamedone said. Other than that V4 looks really great.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.
