It just doesn't seem to make any sense at all.

Maybe BF4 doesn't count camping as skillful tongue.gif

Ok, I think I understand it all now and have arrived at the conclusion that whomever at Dice came up with this stat and how it is arrived at, is a thunderously stupid imbecile who should be fired and then subsequently taken out into the parking lot and viciously and repeatedly kicked in the groin to keep them from further infecting the gene pool with their 'stupid gene'. It's people like this is why the term 'military intelligence' is considered an oxymoron. biggrin.gif

Got a chance to try the game out today. I have to say, it is nice to see BF4 take advantage of what seems to be all 8 cores of my 8350.

Question though, it seems that there are QUITE a lot of empty servers when searching for a multiplayer game. Is there something I am missing? I would have figured there'd be more active servers.

Adjust your server filters to filter out the emptier servers. There's usually plenty of mostly full servers anyways. Just double check all your filter settings.

I've been playing with the filters. For some reason it seems as though changing filters doesn't actually effect the list of servers underneath. Regardless of what I select for filter settings, it have the same list of filters in the same order...... thinking.gif

There have been times when I've changed server filters that no servers at all showed up until I refreshed the list a time or 2. No idea why but maybe try refreshing it a few times after you change them see if that helps.

Is there a way to reduce CPU usage in BF4? I'm running 144 Hz monitor and my settings are on High with no deferred AA, low post AA, no AO, and no motion blur and I only get GPU usages in the 70s% while CPU usage hover 100%.

pretty sure it's a major CPU bottleneck. my CPU is already OC to the max and upgrading isn't an option until SkyLake

Been AWHILE since I've played, but did one of the last 2 patches introduce a seizure inducing flicker to the tank HUD's on Gulf of Oman? It was really bad, lol!

Glad to see they finally got things straightened out after the Feb 13th patch fiasco. thumb.gif

1. Stick to 32 person servers.

2.Max your settings (FULL Ultra) and I bet your GPU usage will go up. Your FPS will go down though. My GPU usage is all over the place in this game too. I could be getting 120 FPS and my GPU usage will say 30, lol.

About 3 months ago me and a few others mentioned to 1 of the BF4 devs on reddit about having loadout presets that you could switch between. A month or so ago he posted a mockup of it and said they were working on it. I just saw this today. Looks like they will actually be implementing this on April 8th. You have to change them from battlelog though.TheBikingViking does say in today's thread that they do hope to add the ability to switch the presets in game too instead of just in battlelog.
