Battlefield 4 double XP kicks off tomorrow

Premium members can rank up faster this weekend beginning tomorrow at 2 a.m. PDT.

by

A double XP weekend event for Battlefield 4 Premium members kicks off tomorrow, January 25, developer DICE announced today. The promotion begins tomorrow at 2 a.m. PDT and presumably ends sometime the morning of January 27, if history serves as precedent.

This is the second double XP event DICE has offered for Battlefield 4 Premium members this month, following a similar weekend promotion January 3-5. A Battlefield Premium subscription is $50 and also includes access to five expansions and other new content released on a weekly basis.

DICE has released numerous patches and updates for Battlefield 4 since launch, but a handful of issues continue to beset the game. As outlined through the game's Top Issues Tracker, all platforms continue to face issues like sudden frame rate drops, incorrect damage effects, rubber-banding, and a "desynchronized" game world where some objects have different states for different players. DICE is investigating those issues and others.

What are these major bugs for BF4? Asides from a handful of instances where I've spawned right in enemy sights or a map has failed to load, I have had no other problems.

People below me arguing over which is better: COD Doggies or Bugfield 4. Find it rather amusing.

Lets be honest here, they are both very poor games

BF for life. Even though they tied with EA dice give a better military tactical warfare game.

@PS4andXoneGamer Poor or good is always a matter of opinion to be fair, but they sure aren't original or improved in any significant aspect. I thought Ghosts campaign was better than the last few, but I don't play online much, and Battlefield well...it's got too many issues and crazy addicted fans for my liking. Too many people around bitching in this game, it feels like an out of control house party where people are too drunk and angry and want to leave.

This is why Titanfall's 6v6 player cap has me inspired, because I think it will be easier to immerse yourself in a world with less player chaos. You tend to be more cooperative with a small intimate group than a huge 20-30 men team. The world/maps having more AI than players should also make for better narrative giving the developer more leeway to immerse you in their story rather than just be a bunch of people running and gunning on a static map until the timer runs out.

@Fabian85Only 2 months ago? I'm sure DICE and EA don't give two shits seeing as you've already paid for the game.

@vscott453 Better military tactical warfare games? America's Army, ARMA II, ARMA III, FlashPoint, Jane's simulations, Falcon 4.0, F18 interceptor (a stretch, lol).

@b74kd3thGhosts is my first COD game and to be honest , I have not been impressed. Every game type is run and  gun.  And killstreaks are retarded.

I think they do little bit at least since they keep asking for consumer feedback and they care if fanbase diminishes then money goes also. Not asking for the money back but would like an official apology.

@andmcq@vscott453 Yea your fighter jet mentions are a big stretch. The point is any game that you mentioned, including bf, has a better tactical warfare. But I wouldn't dare recommend the masses to play aa or arma. Only reason I would say get arma II is for day z. The point is cod is as much as a military shooter as unreal is.

@b74kd3th and a netcode that's so broken all the patches in the world can't fix it.

@spartanx169x @b74kd3th it's the worst of them all but still better then bf,I find ghosts to be a camp fest compared to black ops 2

@Fabian85 No, they don't care. They have millions playing, you think they care that Fabio85 left? No.

@b74kd3th @vscott453 We got 1 DLC in the form of China Rising. Pretty good one at that. I and several others got over what 300hours+ logged in BF4 which speaks volumes.


Netcode could use some optimization, sure. Haven't personally experienced any other problems other than 2-3 crashes in the first week of release.


So it's about time to get a new line kiddo because yours is about 2 months outdated, and get with the times. 


P.S Get a non-cod nickname while you're at it. If you wanna talk with the big boys about BF4. Peace out.

@vscott453 @b74kd3th Activision and EA are both as bad as each other, there is no difference. None. They both exploit peoples interest in games, exploit staff, exploit resources, they both lie and manipulate, all to make more money. It has never been "let us provide a good game that people will enjoy", with both companies for many years the thought has been, "lets make a game and see how much interest we can build and then charge as much as possible for it and DLCDLCDLC". Greed pure and simple both of them. You can bicker all you want about games and opinions but the truth is they both EA & Activision suck.


Regardless of which company is worse, the game is subject to opinion. I detest CoD, it is just a terrible terrible game. I enjoy BF it is more tactical and enjoyable. CoD will always be, and has always been a bad game. BF is bad because of bugs and it was rushed but it is a good game and can be fixed, CoD will never be fixed just re-released, This is an opinion, my opinion, not saying that it is a truth or fact, I will not change anyone's mind one way or the other with pointless arguments, explain your reasons and maybe try to see the others point of view, but this pointless bickering does no one any favors and is wasting your own limited and valuable time.


Both games exist and you get to play the one you like and avoid the one you don't or maybe play both and enjoy them for different reasons.

@b74kd3th@vscott453 OMG its worse!!!! Being sued period cost a lot of money and can put a dent in your funds. Get a clue dude. Losing money is losing money no matter what. They weren't jumping up and down because they got sued and it was of a lesser evil. And these people work. This is what they do to feed their families. I know you just trying to have some i win statement, but really being cold to someone who can't provide for their family is not something to use in a debate to describe a lesser evil. Ahole!!!

@b74kd3th@vscott453 No that was not the case. Try harder. Here is a tip...facts you can google. If that was the case nothing should have been settled by activision. Derp!!!!

@b74kd3th@vscott453 I don't see dice being disloyal to their workers and firing people that caused a big uproar and getting sued over it. Tit for tat.

@b74kd3th@vscott453My game is fine. Tell us more about your lame experience. And you are even more of a lowlife to call people noobs in a forum. Tell us more where Dice touched you.

@vscott453 @b74kd3th enjoy your shoddy coded game that you paid premium for but not 1dlc has come out! I'll stick with the game that I can at least play out of the box while you wait a year for your game to work right, noob

@vscott453 @b74kd3th bf is trying to complete with cod and failing but 1st they threw Moh to the wolves

@vscott453 you're a fool cod is far from ut of all games and each One plays different from the last, in blops2 if you camp your kd will suffer but on ghosts it's set up so it's the method of choice

@spartanx169x@b74kd3th  You're right. I play CoD Ghost, but preferred MW3.  I tried playing BF4, but didn't really like it.  I didn't find it fun.  They are very different games.

@spartanx169x@b74kd3th Never mind the over the top crap you do in cod. I would rather compare cod to fucking unreal then bf. Bf gives a way better military experience. Cod is a joke. And if I wanted to play an arena shooter, best believe I would load up ut99 or ut2004 then cod.

@spartanx169x @b74kd3th blops 2 is nothing but rush and the score steaks are ridiculous, the maps are much smaller then ghosts and matches go allot quicker, I like it allot better then ghosts

@b74kd3thAlways wanted to play BO2, but passed.  but as for comparisons to BF, I think comparing the. COD to BF is  like comparing a car to a truck. Its a matter of preference.
