UPDATED NOV 25: BF4 PC Rent a Server documentation
UPDATE NOV 25: Server documentation for server version R12 is now updated. New documentation available here.
Similar to Battlefield 3, we are introducing the option for players to rent a server and create their own personal gaming experience. This option will be available for PC players at launch, while console players will get this option at a later date.
If you’re a server admin on PC, you’ll always be able to find the latest server administration documentation in this Battlelog News post. We will update you anytime there are additions made to this package.
R12 PC Server Update Notes:
-Fixed several of the most commonly occuring server crashes (This should benefit all platforms)
-Fixed an issue where the cruise missile in Commander Mode was not launching when playing on Paracel Storm (in Obliteration mode)
-Fixed so that a player’s skill is no longer negatively affected when playing as Commander
-Fixed an aircraft IR flares exploit where players could use the flares multiple times before reloading by exiting/re-entering the aircraft
-Fixed an issue with Ranked servers on Xbox One running with a 1% ticket count
-Defined a range of 25-400% for vehicle respawn delays on Ranked servers
Share your passion for Battlefield
We recently turned on the ability for you to enable Facebook Sharing about your progress in Battlefield 4 multiplayer.
You can enable this feature in the menu under your profile picture (see image). Facebook Sharing lets you brag about earned ranks, ribbons, and medals. It also lets your friends know when you join a new game, win a round, or get awarded Top Player Awards. These stories will by default be published in your Facebook Activity Feed, encouraging your friends to join your game and outcompete you.
Through your shared stories, your friends will be able to see what server you’re playing on, join your game (if you’re still playing), access the Battlefield 4 Beta, or analyze your performance post-game through the Battle Report.
That’s it! Let your friends know about Battlefield 4 by enabling Facebook Sharing — you can always turn it off if you change your mind.
This is our first iteration of Facebook Sharing from Battlefield, and like always we appreciate your feedback. What kind of stories from Battlefield 4 would you like to see on Facebook? Let us know in the comments section below.
Join the Battlefield 4 Open Beta and help us make the game better. The Beta runs until October 15 at 10 UTC/3 PDT.
