New servers and the high frequency update patch have transformed Battlefield 4’s multiplayer into a workable state. I feel like this is version 1.0 of a Battlefield game and like all Battlefield games, there are still issues to iron out.
The “Squad Join” feature made a come back but I have yet to see anyone from my friends list use it. I play with plenty of NeoGAF regulars and I have yet to join any of their squads.
Then there’s the built-in Battlelog which inexplicably broke for me. Even when it’s working, they have yet to make it useful. We still cannot customize our loadouts or join players reliably through that damn thing.
The core game itself is fine but I’m not sure if it’s just me settling for a workable experience or it is actually acceptable. I haven’t witnessed any balancing breaking tactics or weapons so I guess that’s a good sign.
I’ll continue to play it with NeoGAF members for the foreseeable future. Battlefield: Hardline’s multiplayer beta squashed any interest I had with that game, so this is my goto Battlefield game for the next year or so. I just hope DICE keeps their word and continue to improve it.
