Oh, Look, Battlefield 4 is Broken

bf41DICE is working on yet another major BF4 problem.

If there’s one thing you can say about Battlefield 4, it’s that the game hasn’t exactly been running smoothly since its launch back in October of 2013. DICE’s signature title has seen one problem after another, including crashes, server issues, connection problems, bugs, glitches, and pretty much everything else you can imagine.




And here’s another: As servers get stressed, players often feel themselves being flung around the map. The effect has been described as “rubber-banding,” and it has been an issue in the game since launch. Now that DICE seems to have solved most of the stability issues, it’s ready to move on to this particular little annoyance.


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


So there’s that. Anyone out there still playing Battlefield?
