I love the changes guys. All the weapons I wanted to like but felt like all the others are varied, feel tighter, and everything has a lot more thought put into it.

SRAW = I think its fine, you just have to get used to it. There is no magic 2D laser rocket in the real world, and now there isn't one in this game which makes the other shoulder fired armaments much more viable for various situations.

I love the fix on the infrared, looks way more realistic.

The game flow overall also feels more calculated and the tempo is much better.

You did a great job, in the twilight of this game's cycle you put some real good work in that should prove a strong foundation for future games, and preserve the shelf life of this one, which I love.

I know developers take a lot of heat no matter what they do, but as a longtime player of this game and a developer myself, I know what must have gone into all of this and my hat is off to the team.

Unfortunately, some people like the knuckle dragging mouth breathers who posted just before me think network latency is evil magic, don't understand predictive bullet trajectory or hip firing, and probably lack forks in their family trees.

Don't listen to these idiots, some of them meant to buy Call of Duty.

I like the changes from the spring patch also, it's the best patch in my opinion since this game launched, BF4 for me on PS3 has been the most stable ever, the game hasn't froze/crashed on me since, nice job dice.

NOOO, anyone who been playing bf4 from day one one last gen knows what i'm talking about, the game has been the most stable of any of the patches they've put out, the game hasn't froze on me since. i've also played bf3, even that game had issues in the beginning, although not as bad.

Not about freezes it the massive overhaul they did to every weapon. Attachments are useless the guns feel terrible. Why would you change so much so fast. This has been the worst patch to date. Good to know scout helis remained untouched though in this patch (heavy sarcasm)

Perseverance - our greatest glory lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail. Honor resides in the Soul, does not matter where one is from.. how they speak.. or how they look..

DICE is committed to constantly improving Battlefield 4 to make your multiplayer experience as entertaining, intuitive, and reliable as possible. Based on great feedback from the community, theUpdate is now here – filled with various improvements to Battlefield 4. Let’s dive right into the tweaks we’ve made.

Get the Complete Patch Notes (PDF) [static.cdn.ea.com]

Netcode Improvements


Major improvements have been made to the Battlefield 4 network layer. Making the “Netcode” better allows for a more exact multiplayer experience for all participants, and this has been done in various ways. For instance, we’ve done long range network updates by adding a cone to the High Frequency Update (30hz), illustrated in the image below.

Other Netcode improvements we’ve done:

- Network prioritization and filtering has been improved. This now prioritizes health/damage, enemy players and vehicles above all.
- Vehicles now use a larger (front) hemi-sphere shape for collision improvements
- Aiming down sights, or zooming in sitting in a vehicle or on foot, utilizes an even longer range cone for better target acquisition at a distance

Required bandwidth close to cut in half: Players with less stellar network connections should get a significant improvement, now able to use the High Frequency Update.

Squad Obliteration game mode


We’re adding a new competitive game mode called Squad Obliteration with the Winter Patch. In this mode the fast paced, objective based gameplay of the original Obliteration is scaled down to 5 vs 5 size – balanced and perfected for competitive play. Here are the major differences from the original Obliteration mode:

Squad Obliteration/Obliteration differences

- No vehicles, no parachute spawns
- Secondary base spawns are made available
- First team to destroy two out of three bases wins the round
- Bomb carrier position is only known to the enemy team if spotted

Quickmatch Changes


We want it to be a smooth and intelligent affair to jump straight into a Battlefield 4 match using Quickmatch. That’s why we’ve added new presets and servers to enable you to play it your way.

Here’s what we’ve added to Quickmatch.

- New player gating: New players can now matchmake into special servers until reaching rank 10, giving them a chance to learn playing Battlefield 4 against other new players.
- Ranked Preset support: Players now have the added option to Quickmatch into Ranked servers as an addition to the Official preset available in the past.
- Premium Playlists: Three new playlists are added catering to various play styles and including maps from all expansions and base game combined.

We believe these updates and changes will make Battlefield 4 even more enjoyable in multiplayer, and we’d like to thank you once again for suggesting these tweaks to us.
Keep the feedback coming, whether it’s for these updates or anything else, and thanks for reading.
