We continue to work hard to further increase the stability of Battlefield 4, and if you have yet to hear about our Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation program head here [battlelog.battlefield.com] for all the info, including Double XP for all Battlefield 4 players between Nov. 28 – Dec. 5. Seeing as this now overlaps with a previously planned Double XP weekend for Battlefield 4 Premium players, we are moving back the exclusive Double XP event for Premium members to the weekend of Dec. 7.

This way, all players can take part in the Player Appreciation 2XP event, while Premium members [battlelog.battlefield.com] still will get an exclusive 2XP weekend. We will get back to you with exact start and end times for these.

For the latest information on game updates and server updates, head to the Battlefield 4 Control Room here on the Battlelog forums.

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

The Best Fan-Designed Dog Tags

A while back, we asked you to design your own Dog Tags and submit them to us for a chance to get them featured in Battlefield 4. You might already have seen the Dog Tags that made it in-game, but now we want to present their creators. So with no further ado, we hand over to three awesome Dog Tag designers and Battlefield 4 fans!

Name: hollandje
Location: Bodegraven, The Netherlands
Hobby: Volleyball, 2D/3D design and gaming
Preferred class in Battlefield 4: Engineer
My favorite map and mode in Battlefield 4: Obliteration on Golmud Railway

How I got the idea for my dog tag: In Battlefield 3, I had the DICE Friends Dog Tag unlocked for creating custom dog tags which eventually ended up in the actual game. That Dog Tag was a collector’s item, so I had people hunting me in lobbies and following me throughout my playing session. There were also people who were trying to protect me from losing my tags and those people became my bodyguards. After a long time helping me I decided to draw this dog tag and give it to them as a reward for their awesome work! Now they can wear it with honor in Battlefield 4!

My reaction when I realised my dog tag would be featured in BF4: This is a pretty funny story. I was at school when I recieved the email that stated my Dog Tag would be featured. I was overwhelmed by the news and didn’t know what to say. The guy sitting next to me knew what I’ve been doing for quite some time, and he noticed my reaction and asked what was happening. I told him about the mail and he was very happy for me that I got this opportunity! A lot of kids in my class and our professor noticed my reaction aswell. They were all very happy for me! To make a long story short: I was overwhelmed and didn’t know what to think or say. I was euphoric that my hard work paid off!

Name: shad0wkr
Location: Krasnozavodsk, Russia
Hobby: Active Sports, Football, Gaming
Preferred class in Battlefield 4: Support
My favorite map and game mode in Battlefield 4: Golmud Railway / Conquest Large

How I got the idea for my dog tag: As a player who likes a knife fight I was really impressed by new counter-knife system during E3 streams. That’s why I decided to create a dog tag based on this new feature!

My reaction when I realised my dog tag would be featured in BF4: That was absolutely unbelievable. I couldn’t imagine that my tag now can be seen by millions of others, so it feels like you got a lucky ticket and hit the jackpot. It’s a honor to create something for my favourite game series and I’m sincerely happy to see my own little creation in Battlefield 4. 

Name: Avengineer
Location: Selinsgrove Pennsylvania, United States
Hobby: Illustration, design and of course playing Battlefield!
Preferred class in Battlefield 4: Well of course, given my name, the engineer class!
My favorite map and game mode in Battlefield 4: My favorite map and mode would have to be Team Deathmatch on Rogue Transmission. Its the fastest way to get knife kills! I always love a game of Conquest on any map… too much fun not to!

How I got the idea for my dog tag: I’ve always loved hunting people down and taking their dog tags. So I thought “we need more dog tags for the knifing fans”. I took the tally mark idea from Battlefield 3, from there it all just came together easily.

My reaction when I realised my dog tag would be featured in BF4: I was very excited and honored and couldn’t wait to see my work in one of my favorite games.
