Thanks made some servers favorites already! God dawn look at how many servers there is! It will like a never ending scrolling page!

 

Hope all these servers stay around for at least 6 months.

I saw some people on the servers too already. Must be DICE employees.

 

Is anyone else here upgrading to Windows 8 for BF4 ? Is it worth it ?

Yes, though I doubt it'll make much of a difference on a per game basis.

Doubt those are employees. Too many of them not working.

Probably youtubers, journalists and others that got early access. And upgraded to Windows 8 long ago, before BF4 even mentioned the better DirectX usage.

It looks pretty.  I've only done one match so far and there weren't many players.  Plus I sucked.

What's a "proper controller support" for you? Game already has full xbox 360 gamepad support even in beta.

Or you just need the aimbot ("aim assist") option like in the consoles version?

 

And wish the beta was a bit more stable. Two servers crashed in a row in the past half hour for me with friends and all were kicked with "Game disconnected: your connection to the server timed out."

Sorry by proper support I mean compared to BF3. With BF3 in Single player for example it would still come up with KBM prompts for the QTEs and even if you hit the corresponding controller button it didn't work, so you NEEDED a keyboard/mouse to play the single player. 

 

So many games for the past 5odd years have proper controller support where you could plug in a controller and it would be mapped and working automatically it was such a shame they borked it with BF3 and didn't even patch it later, so I am quite keen to play BF4 if they have this baked in correctly from the start.

Oh, then in that case; no. Put into BF3 over 200 hours, but never played the single player and for the multiplayer the gamepad is in no use so never had the chance to see if the game offered the key bindings on screen for the gamepad. Tried now on empty server to use the XBOX360's gamepad to see if the interface changes and nothing. Still displays the keys for the keyboard.

 

Maybe on the final release when the single player going to be available?

I have had nothing but fun.

 

The "last man alive" squad feature is (Y) (Y) (Y)

 

I've experienced great squad play with random squad mates.

 

Hip firing feels waaay better. Overall the firing mechanic feels a lot more like the Killzone franchise than BF3 did, which I find enjoyable.

Just ordered a system with these specs:

 

Core i5-4670K 3.40 GHz

GeForce GTX 770 4GB

8GB DDR3/1866MHz

 

Hopefully I can run the game at high or ultimate settings at 1080p.

 

EDIT: Looks like someone already has run the game with that graphics card :)

Took me a while to get into my stride and find the correct settings. But it's okay for now. I still haven't pre-ordered and with the GSP fiasco I'm not sure I will.

I'm thinking about saving up and buying this card, rather than the $259 760

http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Classified-Dual-Link-Graphics/dp/B00DBPU8B2

 

should do a good job i think for a while tocome.

 

again, if you're already using nvidia gtx cards, get the latest beta drivers. they greatly improved my game on the 560 ti, and they also finally allow me to run bf3 on ultra.

 

 

so far the game is really nice, that damn building falls too easily though.

game doesnt feel like bf3 at all really, feels more fluid and nice.

What FPS are you getting on your 560 Ti? I'm on medium settings right now at about 60 FPS on my 560 Ti 448. I'm also looking at the 770 (likely the ASUS though for the noise).

 

I just played for about 2 hours and the game feels great!

Well it looks like I need either a new computer or have to figure out some way to upgrade my graphics card (It's a laptop). I'm kinda disappointed at the massive performance drop BF4 has over BF3.  From consistent 60fps (on high settings) to ... 15fps with everything on low. Not particularly impressed. :/

These are my settings

and i average 40fps. Not the best, but its playable.

Still time to upgrade card.

Just drop everything to low if you get such bad performance. Game still looks amazing on low.

Also reduce the resolution scale to about 80%. Helps too.

Seems ok so far, gfx are a small upgrade from BF3 but it runs really really well on my system (SLI 760's) and looks really pretty.

Shooting feels like COD to me for some reason which I don't really like, and I hate how you can see sniper trails.

Also levolution is ###### if anything it feels like less stuff to blow up than BF3.

Lots of little handy changes though in the UI and classes.
