    Yea I know what to expect as well, horrible 2007 textures, reskinned guns, and corner campers lol.

    However some of the problems you listed in BF3 came after patches not at the beginning like the Dart glitch.

    My bad, I didn't know this was a BF fanboy thread. I thought it was asking who was buying BF4. I'll make an appointment with my eye doctor first thing in the morning.

    Well this thread is asking whose buying it, however your stating a list of complaints and saying your going for Ghosts because Battlefield 4 is full of bugs and you know what to expect. The list of complaints you just stated pretty much have plagued every CoD game since MW2.

    Certain guns are the only ones worth using: MW2 was plagued with issues including Grenade Launchers being overused and too powerful, the Bolt Action Sniper (Cant remember its name right now) being the only good sniper rifle, Care package Glitch, Being able to spawn kill within 1 second of the game starting, people sat in corners for kills because a nuke could auto win a game.
    World at War was the STG (Still a bad *** game though) and PPSH were the best guns to use, though it was pretty balanced beyond that.
    MW3 Was an insult to gamers, more than half the levels were re-skinned variants of MW2 levels and everything just looked exactly like MW2. Very few changes actually occurred and again, only a few different guns were used again because they were the only ones worthwhile.
    Bops 1 Just had an issue where the Famas and AUG were too good and took to long to adjust. A suppressed version of either gun was better than any gun in the game.
    Bops 2 Was awesome, they did an excellent job with changing up the game with the old and new even if the textures were still a little dated. It was a good attempt to change things up and make a futuristic style game and contained the least amount of issues in years.
    Ghosts...Not out yet, but its made by infinity ward and based off the way they are only showing little tid bits of game play and the trailers follow the same theme as how they advertised MW3, they are hiding something.

    Treyarch seems to actually try when making a cod game, while Infinity Ward seems to have given up. But either way I don't trust ghosts until I see it out, if I buy it I will probably buy it used.

    Battlefield 4 has its problems and will need patching, but at least I can see them patching and balancing it out rather than making a new game every year and dropping support immediately. You can buy whatever you want its your choice, however don't tell me that CoD is not plagued with errors and Battlefield is, they both have their own problems that will need fixing.

    Pot calling the kettle black?

    Just because im calling out that CoD is a copy and paste franchise with serious problems while you attest its perfect? Both games have their problems and some are very serious issues. However, I refuse to fill Infinity Wards and Activision pockets on recurring subscription games, but Treyarch can get my money because they are making cool original games.

    BF4 is filled with bugs and hell I cant connect sometimes right now, its got a ways to go. I hope a lot of these issues are fixed before launch or it will hurt the game, however its a beta so I expect betas to be buggy.

    LMAO. I said, "at least with CoD: Ghosts, I know what to expect". I bet anyone (even JC713) reading that statement knew what I meant, but not you, because the fanboy in you translated that to CoD is perfect (your word not mine), and run down the history of the franchise to me in some 1000 word essay like I'm making my choice at random. You just confirmed this is a BF fanboy thread. blablablaRyder more like it.

    JC713's reply to my comment is carrying on the conversation. Yours is an attack on my comment.

    Someone wrote the following statement in a youtube comment once, and it fits you perfectly:

    How to start an argument.
    Step one: Express your opinion.
    Step two: Wait.

    LMAO. I'm insulting people? On a past comment, someone wrote, "ignore him and hopefully he'll go away", which you liked because you though he was talking about me, when he was talking about YOU! You need help too. You comment on every article with one sentence posts.

    I have a life, unlike you. I dont have time to write essays (Informative posts like GhostRyders are nice to read). I just post my opinions and leave. You REALLY need help. You are on the internet, remember that.

    Soo... Anyway... Yeah xD

    What did people think of the BF4 Beta? Personally, I found the map a little restrictive and the graphics to be poor, or at least looked much worse than BF3, ran choppy until the first few patches came out and the only good game mode on that map was Obliteration.

    BUT, Still glad I've got BF4 per-ordered though xD

    Has anyone else here joined the Techspot platoon on BF3?

    3 things;
    1: I personally loved it, didnt see many issues except one day it would not load up for me. Overall, loved the new HUD and the destructive environments.
    2: As for graphics, remember on BF3 beta even though you could set it, the beta only actually went up to "High" Settings in the game. You could set Ultra, but there was almost no difference and when the game out it looked much better, that maybe the case here though to be honest I did not compare graphics while playing.
    3: There a techspot BF3 platoon?

    There is indeed! xD

    True, I ran some monitoring software and also noticed that the game was rendering at 720p. I had to find out why it looked so bad on my 1440p screen! So yeah, probably right on this one.

    Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed it, just felt there was something missing, then again it was also quite an old build if the game, god I can't wait to get the full thing!

    I have mixed feelings:
    1) I am really hoping that they optimize the game and AMD optimizes their drivers because playing it at 20FPS is not fun (medium settings since low looks horrible). I can play BF3 at 40FPS, so lets see if they fix these issues. I really dont want to upgrade to Windows 8 to get the best experience.
    2) I really like the upgrades they have made. But I hate idea of Battlepacks. I dont mind BPs just for camos, but not for attachments.
    3) I really dont want Premium, but if I wait till xmas for a sale, I will miss a few weeks on Second Assault, which is the main reason I am getting BF4! Lol.

    Wow, why was it rendering at 720P?

    Also, I applied to the platoon :D.

    Its something they do I guess until the full release so they can get the optimizing done and to hold off on showing it at its peak is my guess, but its something they did in BF3 as well.

    It is interesting. I was just looking at the fixes from the feedback received during the Beta on the BF Blog. RPGs cannot lock on anymore and the IFV and M320 were nerfed vs armor. I thought the M320 damage against armor was good, I am glad they fixed those issues though.

    The RPG was never intended to be a lock on weapon, it was added for the beta only so they did not have to add the Javelin into the game, at least that's the way I understood it.

    As for the M320 and IFV change, I did not use them much so I did not get a chance to see what they were capable of doing sadly.

    I already miss it lol, I was really getting used to having battles in land sea and air all at once.

    The attack boat is so fun. The way I understood the RPG lock on idea was that they didnt want heli pilots to have air superiority since no one runs stingers.

    I seen the DLC pack for sale for £30-40 even before pre-order and thought I'll pass.

    If you mean premium then yeah, the game is expensive, but to be honest, if the DLC is anything like BF3's it's worth getting, each DLC added quite a lot of gameplay and extra's, plus premium is more than just DLC, prioritised queuing, get DLC early, exclusive hints and tips and special double XP events etc...

    The attack boat was my favourite vehicle in the beta, it packed a punch, had lots of toys and to make things even, was easily destroyable. Plus not many people used it so I always got to xD

    And... we will be able to use it more in the real version because it wont randomly drop on land and it wouldnt be glitched when the tower falls. Win win lol.
