DICE promises to fix Battlefield 4 rubber-banding woes

Battlefield 4 servers will get an upgrade to fix rubber-banding problems, says DICE.

DICE's latest Battlefield 4 promise is that it will fix the rubber-banding issue that many users have complained about since the shooter's launch last year.

The issue, when it happens, flings players around the map when servers are feeling the strain, and is more prevalent in 64-player matches.

"We’re unhappy with our server performance," said DICE, "so we’ll be upgrading the hardware as soon as possible, investing more to deliver a better experience."

There is no current timeframe for when this patch might see the light of day, but it sounds more like a server-side fix rather than an update that users will have to download to their own machines.

"As soon as we know the exact timetable, we’ll let you know the ETA. Reducing lag for these players is absolutely a top priority for us to solve and we expect to have the solution very soon."
