wassup with the server? it goes down all the time. I never made it through a match in the resort map. I think at most i made it for 3 map changes.. then *poof* everyone is kicked off and server is offline.

makes me a sad panda :(

Not our server. All servers. Looks like we can start to expect fixes for server crashes in the R4 patch (we received R3 today). We're not even making it through a whole map rotation without a server crash at this point.

However, if you look at the admin forums at gameservers or procon most servers are making it 30-60 mins before crashing, so we're doing better than those at least.

It's horrible, but this is how it goes with Battlefield sadly.

Also, there are times when I join a game and then GET FUCKING DESTROYED, which is sort of expected in certain games when the other team is on a roll and you are getting pinned down all the way at the spawn point. :/

Couldn't even go out of the camp on a quad bike to go cap one of the farther cap points without getting mauled during that match.

#53 Posted by Zurv (439 posts) -

yeah... i'm just getting owned.. maybe it is because i'm getting old... it could also be the rez... maybe higher rez is harder? you little move of the mouse and i'm not just off that target, but on something far away.

anyone else have problems playing at a higher rez? (and i'm not talking about multi 1080p monitors). like 1440p, 1600p or 4k... i wonder if there is a way to scale the grafix...

Yeah, I was able to play 2 games before crashing. Had some framerate dips from time to time, but it was a mostly smooth 60 FPS experience. Can't wait to play more once they fix this issue.

#55 Edited by PresidentOfJellybeans (300 posts) -

I've tried a few times and have gotten mauled, but it's to be expected since this is like the 4th game I've ever tried the multiplayer on. Mostly I've been having problems with the parkour. I seem to find ways to get stuck on small rubble that by the looks of it, I should be able to just run over, let alone hop/parkour over. Which will often leave me a sitting duck.

#56 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2682 posts) -

The R4 patch hit this afternoon and it's hard to tell if it helped with anything. We're still seeing a server crash roughly every two hours.

We're currently the 9th most popular server in the world so I'm sure part of it is just us getting hammered 24/7.

Too bad it's out East. *SIGH*

Unless you're in Asia or Oceania you should be able to get solid pings. If you're on the west coast you'll be more than fine. Unless you're on 56k.

Picked up the game today, hope it runs ok on my 6970, i'll pop in later if i get a chance to play.

#60 Posted by fibabanchi (35 posts) -

This is great. Now I can be repeatedly killed and not get THAT annoyed by it

#61 Edited by Ubersmake (754 posts) -

I've been on and off the server for the past week, because it's usually full. Is there an actual GBSQ clan? There's this: http://www.gametracker.com/clan/GBSQ/, but I've definitely seen more than five people running around with the [GBSQ] tag in front of their names. I don't want to put the tag in front of my name if it's tied to something I don't know about, mostly because I'm really, really bad at Battlefield.

#62 Posted by LeYcH (216 posts) -

Is this server ever not full?
Jeebus. I never get to play on it.

GBSQ is merely the tag we use in multiplayer games to identify as Giant Bomb users. Please go ahead and put it before your name if you'd like. There's no formal arrangement. It's just so you can spot other GB'ers.

We're switching between 7th and 8th most popular server in the world so no, it's not really ever not full. :P There are finally server queues as of today though which should help!

#64 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2682 posts) -

I've updated the main post with details on the reserved slot system we'll be trying out. If you want your name on it please take a look.

#65 Posted by rflx (573 posts) -

Aww yeah, get me in on that reserved slot action.

Origin/battlelog name: ironeyeball

#66 Posted by Mitch0712 (453 posts) -

@rolyatkcinmai: What maps are crashing the most? I can't figure out which ones are safe if any :( Also how can I reserve a slot on the server? Thanks in advance!

#67 Posted by Kaj235 (47 posts) -

I would most definitely want to be added to the list!

There doesn't seem to be any real trend as to which maps are crashing more than others. MP_Siege (the beta map) crashes clients the most and has been disabled on our server all week. You're on the list already.

Actually yeah even though it was 90ms on average it was still totally playable. Not my usual 20~30ms but it's nicer to play where I'm not lumped in with a squad of 5 snipers and 1 eng. Does the 'premium' queue priority work on these types of servers?

#76 Posted by VelourMustache (54 posts) -

I wouldn't mind being added onto that list (and just finding some folks to play with in general). My Origin ID is VeloutMustache.

Yeah, check out the first post for details on our slots system.

#78 Edited by jkz (4002 posts) -

Would you mind tossing my name onto that queue-list? It's po0m on BL. Have a lot of fun on the server but getting in's never been easy. And thanks for getting this up and running. It's always really cool being able to have a place to reliably meet up as a community ingame.

#79 Posted by juhoz (25 posts) -

I would love to get on that list also, best game company is duder company. Origin ID is: JuHoZione

Added a note about the way reserved slots are currently working on the main post - like everything in BF4 it's a bit odd.

Thanks again for setting all this up! I haven;t played a BF game since Bad Company 2, so I am really looking forward to seeing some GB fueled insanity :D

Is there a tag or clan or something GB users are encouraged to join? I have seen a couple users tagged as [GLBH]
