Older than that - there were less problems.

Maybe it's because I have been playing since the 1942 demo and have always just adapted to BF netcode it just seems no worse to me. It's never been a precise science in BF and has always had weird anomalies you just had to accept and move on.

If they didn't incorporate it, these same people who complain now would be complaining even worse about OMG LAG this game suxxors ( even though im in england and playing on a server in the us-example;or even though my ping is 300 because I wont pay more than $15 for internet-another example).

I just wish they would get rid of it all together in every game, and make the player adjust to their ping instead of the game trying to use some algorithm that doesnt work worth a darn. It's far more reliable and predictable with none of it. But could you imagine the whining? You think it is bad now, holy balls imagine if these guys had no excuse anymore? You mean I have to lead targets to compensate for lag? You mean I actually have to play with people in my own country? You mean I have to spend more than a starbucks coffee every month on internet? Oh the horror.

Anyway, thats my take on it, I think BF4 gets unfairly bashed for it's netcode, It really is no worse than alot of other games (titanfalls is just as bad) and certainly no worse than older bf games. The only time I have issues is when HPB's are in the game, and they just make it a mess.

Keep In mind I am not saying its great netcode or the game hasn't deserved bashing for it's bugs. I am just saying the netcode considering all it does, isn't really that bad.

If it was easy to make a game with tight netcode and incorporate all that BF4 does, I am sure we would see others doing it. Activision and Valve have practically enough money to invent time travel, yet we don't see them doing it do we? wonder why? hrmm must be tough to do, and so far bf4 does it better than the rest. which is why we still have CS/COD on small maps and no vehicles.

very well said

and with that attitude, DICE will never improve their game.

lol

man, I played CoD and Medal of Honour on console whilst 1942 was still a twinkle in DICE's eye, but when I did play 1942 for the first time I was totally in awe...and even more so when BFV came out biggrin.gif

Finally a game where you could do as you pleased AND it was multiplayer! -They are not AI, it is some other dude!!

This was a genre defining moment and to me nothing has come close to BF since.

Yeah BF4 has its issues (just as BC2 and BF3 had (freaking frostbite is a love hate thing) -really, please, I don't wan to get started rolleyes.gif but its still BF and remains my favourite.

I dont hear any whining about COD or CS improving their game, they have tiny maps, no vehicles, and really haven't innovated one fricking thing in over 10 years..even longer for CS. NOW that is something that needs improved. If I wanted to play the same game i have been playing for 10-15 yrs I'd go play them with their awesome netcode.....rolleyes.gif I think I'd rather put a bullet in my brain than play de-dust or office for the billionth time pretending this makes me some elite seal. But yeah tight netcode, I wonder why.....I guess I'd rather look at the bright spot and what BF brings to the table as far as a different style of gameplay (incorporating a playground of weapons and vehicles and all kinds of crazy moments) and a company who at least updates their engine instead of pushing out poop like ghosts/CS:go running on the same crap they did 10 years ago. Or alternatively I could complain on a forum I guess, pretending like if only someone else made it, than it would be so much better. I am pretty sure if they could make it better they would, and if someone else can make it better than they will. Honestly, I just think they do the best they can given the tech we have, and I am happy with it.
