4th Floor Dog Tag
Not much is known about the 4th Floor DogTag yet, but what is known is that it came with the patch that brought the Dragon's Teeth weapons to the BF4 base game. Many people speculate that it is from the hardline beta, or that it is from the cte, but many users who participated and didn't participate in both have the dog tag. According to EA support, the dogtag is randomly generated by server and everyone who visits the http://battlefield.com/4thfloor [battlefield.com] url will get it. So the main aspects of the dogtag are that it has a QR Code there and when scanned takes you to http://battlefield.com/4thfloor [battlefield.com] which redirects to your emblem page. Another things is there is a small staircase with the number 4 there. Also on the side there are numbers 1 - 6 with 4 being bold. Another thing is the numbers relate to release dates of Battlefield 4. Also on the part that is blurred out, if you look closely you can see Kevin Simpson written there but it is blurred out.

Updates On The Hunt
UPDATE #1 21/07/2014
DICE developer T1GGE has said in chat on BF4 "x marks the spot" which got people believing that there is an x somewhere on Paracel Storm, he later said on chat again "Not that X, the Greek X". In Greek, X means CHI, CHI is also a mythical dragon in Chinese.
UPDATE #2 22/07/2014
DICE developer JJJU has confirmed that both the Kevin Simpson twitter and the KevinSimpson2142.com website are both fake and are not owned / affiliated with DICE in anyway, they are a troll, please do not look further into these. KevinSimpson twitter got 500 followers, if anyone wants, they can start a raid on twitter #unfollowkevin!
UPDATE #3 23/07/2014
DICE developers JJJU and T1GGE have changed their avatars on Battlelog and they have changed it to what appears to be a photo of René Descartes.

UPDATE #4 28/07/2014
JJJU has once again updated his profile picture which time time is a barcode. When you try to scan the barcode it won't scan, what you need to do is to invert the colours on it. Steps to inverting in Photoshop: Copy Photo > Open Photoshop > Paste Photo > Images - Adjustments - Invert > Scan photo with phone. Once you scan it it will come up with a code of numbers which relates to a book called "Unicode Standard 5.0"

UPDATE #5 29/07/2014
JJJU has updated his profile picture again, and this time it's a picture of four different letters, and the letters are in GREEK. The letters are: Σ = sigma Υ = upsilon Χ = chi x^ = ??

UPDATE #6 30/07/2014
JJJU has once again updated his profile picture, and this time it's the same as before, but instead of the pictures being in a cube, they're in order so we know how to find out the password.

UPDATE #7 30/07/2014
JJJU updated his profile picture, this time telling us that the password is not in letters, it's in numbers

RULES BEFORE POSTING HERE
1. Please do not self-promote your youtube channel.
 2. Kevin Simpson youtube/twitter/facebook are all fake.
 3. There is no Phantom weapon.
 4. No being rude to anyone please.
 5. No trolling at ALL.
 6. No giving false information.
 7. Please do not repost the same image over and over.
 8. Please check before posting to see if what you are posting has been posted already.
9. Respect TheRadGamerDan or else!


HOW THE PASSWORD WAS FOUND
1. Grab the symbols from the map (the hexagrams, not the trigrams)
2. From jjju's barcode int, people mapped those to unicode values: 0x4dc0, 0x4dc0, 0x4dc1, 0x4dc2, 0x4dc4, 0x4dc7, 0x4dcc, 0x4dd4
3. People also mapped those to the fibonacci sequence (with the value those symbols have in chinese mythology or something): 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21. This gives us an order. Now it turns out you need to take them from largest to smallest, and I got this idea from the battle log console that references the 'max' function.
4. jjju's formula was pretty explicit showing we were looking for a polynomial, it was missing mostly which value to use as factor and where to start end.
5. Today's graph picture shows a function that 1) tends to -inf when evaluated at -inf and tends to inf when evaluated at inf. This tells us that the highest x power is odd. 2) It doesn't cross the origin. And when you look at the graph and evaluates what's the function value is at the origin, you get a value between 19000 and 20000. This is exactly the range of value of the unicode char. This also tells us that the polynomial has a x^0 term. We have 8 unicode values that map from x^0 to x^7
6. From a chat in game from another dev, we had 'X marks the spot' and 'the greek X', which people assumed was related to the console saying CHI = 7.25154120937236. So this gives us the point to evaluate at. The console also mentions the 'floor' function which tells us to ignore the decimal part of the result.

In the end :

f = 19924 * x^7 + 19916 * x^6 + 19911 * x^5 + 19908 * x^4 + 19906 * x^3 + 19905 * x^2 + 19904 * x + 19904

f(7.25154120937236) = 24344241893.00018

25 roadkills is easy as, just jump in a jeep, or quad, or transport vehicle and find camping snipers and roadkill them

Hmmm. As far as passwords go, the first two things that come to mind are this (in regards to possible topics related to the password

- Dragon's Teeth could be referring to the structures used in WW2 by the German military to prevent the landing of vehicles on beaches.

- Dragon's Teeth could also be in reference to the Upton Sinclair novel, which he received a Pulitzer Prize award for in 1943

If a mod reads this, would you be able to sticky this thread so new people will be able to see it and join the hunt for the password? Instead of people ahving to bump the thread all the time, it could be stickied and easier for new people to find it. Thanks!

When the CTE client was first made available, in the cte dump they had all the xp3 weapons/assignments/awards/things, there was a folder that had the camos from xp3, and this texture file was in there, I have also had other people confirm it will be the award.

If you look at the new dog tag available (4th) floor, you can see Kevin Simpson scratched out which was part of the last phase.
I think the dog tag is a clue.

^Yes, it is obviously Kevin Simpson. Look at the dates on it! The first one is BF4's release date. The second one is 2142. 06. 12.

Good eye. Its hard to make out, but I agree.

The QR code goes to battlefield.com/4thfloor supposedly, but it just sends me to my customize emblem page. Maybe there is another clue there?

The 2nd line of dates saying 21420612 could have something to do with 2142's release, it was released in 06, but that doesn't include the "12" so I'm not sure.

wow nice job, would have never thought the qr code would actually work. I'm guessing the http://battlefield.com/4thfloor [battlefield.com] page will be available when DT comes out.
