It’s been about 6 months since the long awaited FPS, Battlefield 4, came out and in my opinion, this is the only FPS game which gives Call of Duty a run for its money. Even though Battlefield 4 is an amazing game and is a lot of fun to play, it is far from perfect. There have been a lot of issues that haven’t been resolved and these issues are the reason why fans are so upset with the game but DICE is working hard to fix the game.
Some of the issues that players have been complaining about affects their gameplay and make the game unplayable at times. The killcam glitch, for example, causing a kill cam seemingly prior to death, instant death while sprinting and how can we forget, the rubber banding issue. Recently, DICE upgraded the Battlefield 4 servers to fix the rubber banding issue but that has had little to no effect and the issue is still not fixed.
In a blog on the Battlefield website, DICE Vice President & General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson said, “We have invested in new hardware to resolve this issue and deployed new higher-performance servers this week. In preparation, we conducted a significant amount of testing before installing the new servers to ensure they would correct the issue. We are already seeing performance improvement with 64-player matches and expect this to continue.”
He later on added, “Our objective is to deliver the best player experience possible. We feel this solution helps us deliver that to you. Stay tuned to our official channels for more information.”
What the rubber banding glitch does is it stops your characters from moving, so you’re sprinting or running in one place, and then suddenly you shoot forward. This is one of the glitches that makes the game unplayable at times and takes all the fun out of it. Battlefield 4 is an amazing game nonetheless but these glitch can ruin a player’s gaming experience so hopefully DICE fixes all the issues and glitches so that the Battlefield 4 gets to the level DICE intended.
