One of the top guys from EA/DICE Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE VP & GM has give us some new info on the rubber banding issues in BF4. DICE have invested in new hardware to resolve this issue and have deployed new higher-performance Battlefield 4 servers this week.
As you know, we’ve been looking into resolving the “rubber banding” that some players on certain platforms have experienced with Battlefield 4 after the recent release of Naval Strike. We’ve found that the root cause of the issue was a configuration of certain hardware types dedicated to 64-player matches.
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.
While the process took longer than we would’ve liked, we wanted to be 100% sure it was done right and that the long-term solution was properly in place.
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.
As we all know this is good news but another thing we also know to be true is if DICE fix something then they always break about 3 other things in the game doing it… So fingers crossed this will resolve many horrible and annoying issues in Battlefield 4.
