Now Naval Strike is not coming out at all for a while...

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf...t-to-the-sea-with-battlefield-4-naval-strike/

"...we are delaying the launch of Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC. We’ve detected an issue and it needs to be solved. Quality is our number one priority and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible."

I am neither surprised or shocked. It's near the same feeling I have when I see a tan sedan driving down the road doing the speed limit.

It really depends on 2 things:

1. Did you enjoy the beta?
2. Can you keep your cool when it crashes?

If you answered yes to these two questions, then you will have the good times. Honestly, it's the most fun I've had in an online FPS in years. So many great, funny moments.

PS. DEAD HORSE <---BEATING = A monitor that has some sort of strobing tech like the new Z series from BenQ can do WONDERS for your overall enjoyment in this game. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to run past some IPS user and whip around whilst blasting away w/ CRT LASER MIGHTY DOLPHIN UNICORN precision only to read him/her bitching about it in the chat box.

It's more than cold. It's incompetency. If they truly didn't know about this issue until now that is.

Yup. What bugged me most was the title. It was obvious click bait and sure as hell seemed to indicate it was moments from release. A very poorly worded update.

1. Title should have been straight forward. As it stands, deception comes to mind...
2. Should have been announced on Mon morn @ the LATEST! In all earnestness, it should have been last week sometime for folks that have made plans to be home from school or work. Some folks took a vacation for this!

But you just played SIX GAMES IN A ROW. That's some serious gaming time. That's a good game. That means you like the game. Some of you just baffle me.

Dude on OCN said the 10 tick rate was due to the Xbone. Honestly, I don't care if it's true or not. I love to hate on that piece of garbage!

How about the fact that they farmed out the last two expansions to another studio.

Delays are ok if they need to fix bugs. What can ya do?

No wonder when I checked this morning before leaving for work and there was no update. DICE has really disappointed me.

I am just speechless. They actually delayed something instead of releasing it? We always expect bugs. Must have been a really good game breaker.

Yeah, this game is brioken bc the netcode just can't be fixed. They have to start fresh. I still have fun with it but I sure do miss playing it competitively.

I love the fact that they only announced the delay, the day of the release or just hours before. I didn't know about the delay until I woke up. I know people who are serious about releases and tend to take time off for these kind of things and this is a low ball move.

damned if they release it, damned if they don't. if they release it and it has severe bugs, people will complain to no end. if they decide to hold it to fix the bugs, people complain as well.

Not damned if they release it and it works. *shrug*

Yeah you could say its game breaking, little known exploit but has spread like wildfire among trolls, whereby you can target a server or even an individual and use a bug in the commander slot allocation - kicks all players and crashes server - every players BF4.exe crashes to desktop. Twitch streamers have been the biggest targets, which raised the profile of this exploit obviously.

Its understandable they'd want to fix that even it it means people screaming about a few extra days on 4 new variations of paracel storm

Is this game better than BF3?
Dice's idea's and philosophy for BF4 is great. They had a lot of great ideas that would of made one of the best FPS of the last 10 years, imo.
Yet...
the implementation of this game was (and still is nearly 6 months after release is) complete garbage. So much is broken with this game. And it seems like after every patch. They fix 2 things and 1 more thing breaks.

While playing the game you get the feeling that the network is unstable. Almost like everyone has high packet loss or something. Hits don't register, enemy health not represented correctly, complete wrong enemy showing on kill cam, major rubberbanding even with excellent ping (getting killed around corners). The list goes on, especially with weapons that are not balanced for a fun experience like Active Radar missiles and Anti-Air mines.

I truly feel like this game is not better than BF3. It had a lot of potential but is an ultimate letdown for $60.
I have premium and play almost every day. Im not the best player, just trying my best to enjoy what I paid for...

Quality is our number one priority

oh yeah, so true.
because you know bf3 and 4 both had quality launches.
bf3 still isnt even fixed, and bf4 wont be fixed before bf5 is released.

Must be working on BF2143 in 2015 and BF5 in 2016.

There is no BF2143. Unfortunately, DICE's incompetence and EA's greediness will allow them to fuck up yet another great franchise using the same game engine. In case you are wondering, that game will be Star Wars Battlefront, sequel to the hits Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront 2 from 2004 and 2005 respectively.

Yeah, the BF2143 concept pretty much morphed into Battlefront, ever since EA licensed the Star Wars IP for 10 years, and now want an ROI on it.

So, about the BF4 and BF4(64bit) icons on my desktop


do I need them for anything? Can they access stuff I can't get through Battlelog?

If you are running a 64bit OS and have more than 4GB of RAM, then you should be running the 64bit version of the game.

I don't like icons cluttering my desktop, so I always launch from Origin. You can force Origin to launch the 64bit version by right clicking the game and going to properties [I think]. I'm not sure which version it picks from default, so I force it.

Pretty sure that launching from Origin will pick the correct version based on your operating system. So if you're running on a 64-bit version of Windows it will launch the 64-bit version of BF4. You can check the Task Manager while the game is running. It will append "*32" to the end of the executable in the Processes tab if it is running the 32-bit version.

Re: Perfect Landing assignment

You need to land on the tower FIRST and then get the 10 kill streak. Why that isn't specified.... it's DICE.
