So, first off, great game....when it works?

I just got my hands, very lucky, on a PS4 on Friday. Love it.

Got Battlefield 4 as my game. I made the switch from COD to battlefield. I like battlefield much better from a skill and strategy standpoint. It's not just a run and gun, twitch shooter.

However, yesterday I was having some stutter frame issues which wasn't terrible. Happened mostly while running, but otherwise shooting and other general gameplay was unaffected. It never cost me a kill.

Logged in this morning though and man alive. Rubberband lag was out of control. One time for a solid 30 seconds whilst trying to jump through a window, I would jump and it would put me back outside, again and again and again. Then, I would see a target and I would shoot the crap out of it only to notice that he had just skipped like 10 yards to the left or right and I wasn't really shooting at anything. In other words, it was unplayable. Completely and utterly unplayable.

Are there any fixes coming soon from DICE? I tried even playing smaller scale game modes and it was consistently unplayable. I thought it was just the CQ mode because of so many people. I paid $60 and the game it really, really fun when it works. I just wish it would...you know....work. Anybody having the same issues? It's not my internet. It's fully operational.

Follow up Q: Do I need to seriously consider returning BF4 and moving back to COD? I don't sit and play a whole lot because I use it for now as a break from studying, so I would like for the game to work when I need it to. I never had a single issue with COD servers. Worked every time through COD WOW, COD blacks ops 1 and 2.

I hope not because I was having a blast with BF4 yesterday even while dealing with stutter lag.

Recently for some reason BF4 has become quite laggy, not sure if it is the servers or peoples bad connection.

My advice always look for a decent ping ( 4 and above ) shows when you search for a match ( right hand side )

I used to be a cod man ( 1st black ops, was my last cod game) I prefer bf, mainly as its more of a team game...but ultimately its down to you if you prefer team work or going solo ?

It has seemed laggy to me since the new DLC went up for premium... Very noticeable when running...

March 11th can't come soon enough.

What happens March 11th?

Please tell me a fix. I am hoping maybe the issues this weekend are from the Japan launch.
