[B4C] Battlefield 4 is unplayable on the PC

post #1 of 123
Thread Starter 
The PC version suffers from crashes and freezes, making it practically unplayable.
October 31st, 2013 IN News

And according to complaints on Twitter, Reddit, and the official EA forums, we aren’t the only ones. Widespread reports of random crashes and freezes are popping up everywhere, and it seems that some players can’t finish a single match without problems.

The crashes and instability seem to be happening on all sorts of hardware configurations, And when it does crash or freeze, players loose all progress, unlocks, and stats they accumulated during the match.

So far DICE has only issued the generic “we are aware of the issue” reply. If only they were aware before the game shipped. It’s astounding that these sort of issues have plagued every single Battlefield game since BF2. And yet, we somehow expected a developer of DICE’s caliber to learn from their mistakes.

From personal experience, over half of Battlefield multiplayer matches result it either a crash or a freeze. Most of the rest of the matches are unplayable due to the lag and rubber banding issue.

It hurts us to say this, but at this point, we wouldn’t recommend anyone getting Battlefield 4 on the PC. Wait until the first patch or two fix these issues. Or get the game on consoles, where it seems to be running great.

I'm getting these issues too, this is what happens when devs consolize their games.

Not even a CoD fan but when it outsells BF4 don't be surprised, the game actually works when it releases.

I have none of these issues and the group of people I play with have not complained either.

Doesn't matter how many pages it is, the game is not "unplayable".

Perfectly fine here, played multiple matches. Had one single crash, I think the game is great.

I have gotten the "battlefield 4 has stopped working" many times but it's not every time.

I think the problem is with the server client or connection to the back end.
