The hit reg over here isnt as bad as you people make it seem (Australia)
Its not perfect by any means but its not terrible either. Though you still get those wtf moments where you empty a clip into someone and nothing happens.

I feel like I'm the only person who's never experienced a crash or bullet lag of any kind.
Just bought this game, shall be fun to se how much i suck at it.
Anything good to know before hand?
I'm a stranger, I'm a changer.
And I'm danger... maybe...
If anyone wants or cares, I just finished setting up a 24/7 Operation Locker server which I will be heavily moderating. The server runs on x2 Quad Core CPU's with 16GB of RAM so it's lag free.
System Specs -
CPU - i5 2500k @ 5ghz | CPU Cooler - RASA RX240 | Motherboard - Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3| GPU - Nvidia GTX 590|
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB | RAM - 8GB Corsair Vengeance | PSU - Corsair TX850M | Case - CoolerMaster HAF 922
| Monitor - Crossover 27Q (2560x1440) | Sidewinder X4 Keyboard |
Thought I would give it a month without playing to give them time to fix the game. Got back on today. Nope. Still fucked. What a waste of 100 bucks. Might as well go play 3. Atleast it works.

What bugs are people actually seeing (PC)?
I see people constantly saying that the game's broken but since they fixed server dc's when the the skyscraper fell in Shanghai I've not experienced any.
I don't encounter all that many bugs. Sometimes the mortar display becomes screwed, that's a minor thing I noticed.
A few major flaws are the squad spawning. You have around a second of a black screen when you spawn. A second in itself isn't that much, but it is a lot in a shooter.
Huge flaw is the buggy map loading, and with that, the pre-match start-up time. I have a very fast PC, but it takes me a good minute if not more to load the map. I've read that a lot of people online are having issues with that. Loading maps in BF3 in seconds to loading 1 or more minutes in BF4. People unaffected by this can enter the server very fast. And then they can rush the bombs with hardly any defenders, one player often places both bombs at the start. People on consoles always join in at the same time, same hardware for consoles. For PCs not everyone has the same beast of a machine, buggy loading or not. I'm only playing Rush, and very often I lose the first 2 bombs on Operation Locker or Zavod for instance. Very frustrating.
Also the mobile AA is very OP. Can't really do much as a chopper pilot if the mobile AA is on a pretty much invulnerable spot.
EDIT: I just realized I can only find servers/connect to Battlelog using Chrome. My Battlelog doesn't work in Mozilla. Chrome is nice, but I would've preferred if it worked in my favourite browser.

To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
BF4 is all great, vehicles and big fights are pretty crazy, but I reach a point where I can't stand worse stand points than COD;
when it comes down to skill and even field CS:GO is the only way to go.
I have a few questions in this Megathread that will hopefully be answered.
1. How do you get the most experience to rank up?
2. If the best way to get experience is to play domination, apart from kills how do you get a high score?
3. How to upgrade med kits?
4. Best class for Conquest?
Would really appreciate if somebody could answer my questions!!!!
And as for question #4, asking what class is "best" is irrelivant. I myself always played, in bf3, Assault - AEK (Love that gun, ironically I hated the m16) and Recon - M98b/JNG-90. It all comes down to your playstyle.
I already have 135 hours played, that's more than I get out of any AAA title and there are still 3 more DLCs for them to release. So IMO the price was fair.

4. Depends on what map you are playing. I dont really think there is a "best" class for anything, all though Recon is really useless on most game modes / maps.
