Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation

Today we launched Battlefield 4 on Xbox One. With that console, we will have brought Battlefield 4 to no less than five platforms. It is amazing to see such a complex universe come to life across so many advanced hardware systems. Millions of people around the world are playing the game and seeing the tip of the iceberg of what the next generation has to offer. At DICE, we are committed to you, the fans, and view the game as a live service. I am extremely proud of the people at DICE and everyone across EA that contributed to the development of Battlefield 4. However, I am less proud to see that the game has experienced some turbulence during the launch period. While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving the launch issues is our #1 priority. In fact, we are so serious that we have the entire team working to stabilize the game and we will not move on to other projects until we are sure that Battlefield 4 meets – and exceeds – your expectations. It is the right thing to do.

To show our appreciation for your patience as we work through these issues, we are announcing that from November 28 through December 5, we will reward all players with Double XP for every multiplayer match they complete. We understand that the launch issues may have impacted your progression, and we want to do everything we can to help you get back the XP that you may have lost. Also, to cap off the week, on December 5 we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4 multiplayer a M1911 pistol scope. This special sidearm scope, previously reserved for our DICE developers, has a 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.

You are the heart and soul of Battlefield. We thank you for your support in these early days of the launch, and will continue to show our appreciation as time goes on. To stay informed about the latest game updates, please visit us at Battlefield 4 Control Room or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you,

Karl Magnus Troedsson

I personally find it insulting that EA/DICE think a week of double XP and a pistol scope is some kind of token of appreciation. Many of us paid over a hundred dollars for a game that was so clearly not ready for release and while I truly believe some DICE devs are sorry, I dont see flipping a few switches to give players extra experience as anything but DAMAGE CONTROL. If EA/DICE are truly sorry, then they can show it through action. More developer-player interaction, involve the community in balance decisions, constant updates on patch progress, FULL patch notes, premium content that isnt camo. I dont want to be so negative. I'd like to see this double EXP as a start. I sincerely hope that EA/DICE to follows through.
DOUBLE XP THANK YOU SO MUCH DICE. NOW EVERYTHING IS OKEY. X0X0X0X LOVEEEEE
I would be a lot happier if you just refunded us our premium subscription for the bad product you guys pushed out way too soon.
Wow, look at all the ungrateful souls. Instead of ranting on a thread that clearly is an apology to the community and saying "fix the game" you can focus on that they are DOING that, you guys just want attention and you somehow get HOOAHs on that, it is just shameful that all you care about is your money and you don't even realize that it's eventually going to get fixed. It's not like they ditched us, if you didn't skim through the article they said "...we have the whole DICE team working on problems". You guys can't even accept an open apology because you just love to start rants on a dev forum until it eventually gets locked. It doesn't make you an cooler to post that stuff, it actually makes you look stupid. I'm surprised that DICE hasn't even lost faith in you guys, no matter that they just apologized for the known issues of the game.
Please Fix the Gameeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FIX THE CRASHES !!!!!!!!!!!
Now just fix the pc version. Thanks
How are we going to get these rewards it we can't stay in a match longer then 10 Seconds before we get kicked back to the server page?
i hope this Double XP everyone deal stacks with our premium xp
THE AMOUNT OF CRASHING THIS GAME IS DOING IS INFURIATING, BROTHER. DOUBLE XP? IF YOU WERE REAL HULKAMANIACS YOU WOULD BE GIVING OUT SOME FREE MAPS CONSIDERING THE SOUND HARDLY EVER WORKS AND THE MAPS CRASH CONSTANTLY, IT'S LIKE THE FULL RELEASE IS AN ALPHA OR AT BEST, BETA BUILD. NOW I WANT YOU TO ASK YOURSELVES, WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO WHEN HULKAMANIA RUNS WILD ON YOUUUUUUU!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Can we have have the game fixed to where SKILLED players are not at a disadvantage?
Love it! Thank you DICE. And congratulations!
Uh-oh.... inb4 Premium is a ripoff
I'm just glad we have a game that works as intended without any crashes or bugs :) Oh wait...
hooah cus dice will fix the game!
What about the Premium Double XP event that starts on November 30?
ERMAGERD! FREE IMPRACTICAL PISTOL SCOPE AND DOUBLE XP?!?!?!!?!?! Can I just have my money back? That'd be great.
Listen Dice you Need !!! to fix the netcode if you dont the game wont last a longtime !! i can assure you !!!all comp players will leave to something else more fair ! and legit and every casual player will quit too because they will get unfairly killed pls everyone hooah this so they can see this message!
the game is good but fix it
my comment has stopped reponding. Please click to close this box
haha, this is epic. Dice did you know that levelling up in this game is like pissing on three fingers, easy. The game has been out for what, 20 days? And people are already reaching lvl 100. i know they are nolifing, but others who actually have life are not far behind anyway. I have seen people with lvl60. So give another month or two and most of us will be lvl100. So who cares about double xps? I remember back in BC1 days I spent a lot of time reaching max lvl. BC2 was as well a challenge to lvl up. BF3 at which I was decent it took me a lot of time to max out the lvl, though I admit it was stupid amount of levels in that game. So again who cares about double xp and 1911 with triple scope is just stupid. And I laugh at kids who now write comments on how Dice redeemed themselves with this story :DDDDDD wow they have all the team working on BF4 NOW. What were they doing before the game got released?
what happens during the days premium players have double xp. does it make it 4x more or what?
I think your forgetting all those people that have paid extra for premium for things like double xp events now everyone gets it any way WTF have a paid premium for? really hope you move the event or give premiums some extra guns or triple the xp at a minimum
"What's that you say? Your game doesn't work? Here have 'Double XP' when we know your game will crash" - DICE
Sorry but it's nothing but insulting to think that a Double XP week and a pistol scope are going to repay for the errors. Guys,we are not the COD community! We shouldn't accept this kind of actions! Like inV-Mongus said, if EA/DICE is truly sorry, they just need to fucking fix the game!
need to be fixed but the game is actually great !
So what about the premium dbl XP? Deadset dice , sort this out!
I totally appreciate DICE and EA giving back to the customers as everyone who bought the game deserves it. With that said though, premium users should be treated as a "premium" user. They have paid the extra money expecting to get all of the "bonuses" they were told THEY would get and that regular users would not. DICE and EA are taking away the advantages that premium users should have. Some say it's not a big deal, but for spending an extra 50$ on the membership, I think it's well worth the dispute.
Nobody Cares Fix the Game Crashed like 8 times Today And Major Lag insane
"alright, so yes i was using a macro, i screwed up the all exertus team/organisation, it is entirely my fault. on their side, these guys are probably the best players i ever play with and they are all legit. the organisation is awesome i just screw up everything by doing that. I dont know why i did that to be honest, i guess im gonna move on, what is done is done. i just want to apologize to everyone who played with me in the past"
