Same damned black screens when trying for half an hour to join a server like in BF3.
The game stutters like sheet
Strange gameplay design.
They really need to hire back the guys that worked at BF2 and BF BC2 as they are going the wrong way.
Just BF3.1 people ,cheap coding to bring money to EA the easy way.2 years spend to deliver nothing.
Next time they will just redesigning the Battlelog and call the game BF5.
Just a way for their plug ins to look at your browser usage.
Who is pre-ordering deserves the final outcome.
Okay, totally not sure if you're being serious or not but if you are..
First off, I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the game is in beta. This is why it's stuttering a little bit and it's a little more demanding on resources. The game should be optimized by release.
Anyway, the same black screens when loading servers like in BF3? BF3 and BF4 both have proper loading screens and aren't just black screens. It definitely shouldn't be taking that long to join a server with your system specs either. BF4 takes a minute but again, it's in beta and BF3 should load pretty quickly. It sounds like there's something wrong on your end.
Simple and ugly graphics? I'd say BF3 and BF4 are some of the better looking games on the market. Definitely not the best, but still pretty good. Definitely better than 90% of the games coming out lately. I'd definitely say they're far from simple looking.
Strange gameplay design? Okay.. that's vague.
Cheap coding? Two years to deliver nothing? BF5 will just be a redesign of Battlelog? Now this is where I feel you might be trolling. Did you even play the game or are you just saying this?
Just a way for their plug ins to look at your browser usage?.. wut? What exactly do you think they're trying to find out? Now that's a tin-foil hat theory if I've seen one.
I have a feeling people that are preordering the game might have a slightly different opinion than you and probably didn't share the same experience as you.

It is partially alleviated in my mind since the launcher seems to actually work now.
It's worth noting that you and I are on the same generation of GPUs. I use two 6970s and my friend uses one 6970. It plays well for both, but we're on an i7-3930K and i5-2500 respectively. The game does require a lot of CPU time.
@Ha-Nocri: Take note that the in-game UI uses scaling so that it will look about the same at large resolutions as it does at moderate ones. You may not be able to accurately gauge the resolution it's running at by looking at anything in-game. Take a screenshot with FRAPS or something similar and see what dimensions it has.
Eh.. I would never want to go back to an in-game browser. There's so many benefits to Battlelog. Server browsing is much faster and smoother. Your server browser, your general gameplay stats, progression/unlock stats, weapon and vehicle info, past game activity, friends and platoon info are all right there in one spot. You can change your loadout out of game. It's much easier for the developers to improve Battlelog since it's a separate entity from the game which means if you are one of those people with technical issues with Battlelog, it's easier for the developers to fix and it's also easier for them to add new features such as the ability to change loadouts out of game as well as the more recently added ability to be able to switch servers without having to close out of the game. Then there's the plug-in BetterBattlelog which adds features such as Filtersets which are basically like profiles for your filters which you can save and quickly choose from as well as a large database of in-depth statistics on all the guns in the game.
If there is one thing I'm a fanboy of.. it's Battlelog. xD I wish more multiplayer FPSs had similar systems.
