Battlefield 4 PS4 multiplayer issues

A big issue thats been present since launch is the revive bug where no matter how many times you attempt, some people just cant be revived, which needs to be fixed still.
That happens when people die near stairs all the time with me. I guess that's what we get for not using the handrails.

Also for the first time today i started getting another bug where the revive screen would stay present, even after i have accepted, taking up about 30% of my vision on screen and nearly covering the crosshairs -.-
The only way to avoid that is to wait a second before accepting the revive I found. Ain't nobody got time for that.
 
Am I the only one that can't play China Rising? I downloaded it, and when I go to play a server with CR maps in rotation it just brings me to the purchase screen at the store, and when I click purchase, it says content not found.

:/

Was your China Rising download something over 4000 MB (that's 4+ GB) ?

Did it install?

After mine installed, I turned off my PS4, then turned it back on. I'm not saying you have to do that, but that's what I did after the download and installation, just to be sure any and all downloads & updates were in place from bootup.


I can't even get it to download.
I do not use WiFi with PS4, I hardwired it LAN / ethernet to the back of my Comcast gateway/router.
 
Alright so two weeks later after China Rising came out on PS4, I still cannot play it. I have premium and whenever I try to join a server, it just continuously loads without end. I reinstalled the whole game, dlc, everything. Nothing works. None of the patches fixed it and EA support just brushed me off.

Anyone have this problem? Solution?
sounds fucky. if your willing, try a database rebuild. remember to save your games to a USB stick before doing it, for back-up reasons.

can dice get their shit together? They release a patch that breaks revives. Good job dice, i enjoy having the everlasting option to accept or decline a revive.
Count your blessings. I just jumped on, downloaded the 12/17 patch and logged on. So far so good. There were 4 conquest servers. Wow! Jumped in and spawned in a tank. I was rubberbanding so bad it was ridiculous. Jumped out and ran towards building as players ice skated all around me. Went for stairs and fell thru them. I fell THROUGH THE GODDAMN STAIRS. So now I'm under the map seeing all sorts of crazy shit then bam! Some asshole shot me. It took 35 seconds for the death to register. Now I spawn on foot. I start running and everything around me is a slide show. All vehicles are stopped then 4 seconds later they all jump ahead 30 feet. Then all stop again. Bam! I get shot by who the fuck knows and die. 20 seconds later I spawn in a boat. As I'm see sawing down the water I see an enemy. I pull the trigger. Nothing. The fucking guns won't shoot. Rage quit ensues and I come to gaf to vent.

Thank you.
 
I didnt care much when.it crashed every once and awhile.. But now After the last couple patches there's a lot of rubberbanding going on that's completely unplayable..

I'll take being able to play and crashing every once and awhile over not being able too play at all..
Glad i can finally see china rising in the server browser now though
 
I could be wrong but, I really believe DICE built Battlefield 4 from the ground up, in general, around using Battlelog on a 2nd device--And it seems this includes the PS4 & XBone versions.

Now it's not like I haven't had any problems with BF4, because I have, and they've been pretty significant. But it seems in my experience that I've been able to avoid the worst of it using a Battlelog extension for Google Chrome on a Windows 7 laptop.

In my experience PS4 multi-player problems are worse without it, just using PS4 alone.
It won't help with the single player campaign save corruptions of course, but that seems to have been largely resolved if I'm not mistaken.

This especially helped me in the early days just after launch.

Now I'm using this Battlelog web browser add-on with Chrome. I'm also going to try it with Opera and other web browsers.

EDIT: Battlescreen seems a bit more reliable in Opera.

Anyway most people have at least a cheap Windows PC desktop or laptop of some sort lying around. Mine has nothing more than Intel graphics.
 
I used the PS3 to PS4 physical disc upgrade route. My China Rising code was entered on my PS3 but the pack is coming up at £12.79 on my PS4 when I try to download it. What a fucking mess.

Guess my options are to either plug the PS3 back in and download it or get onto EA. From what I hear about EA Customer Service the former is preferable. Oh well, I've learned for next time. I won't be fooled by a BF launch again the same way Activision haven't had a penny from me for 5 years.
 
So my friend has been experiencing a very amusing bug. Every time he tries to use the L85A2 or any of the weapons from china rising the weapon attachments get reset. Anyone else experiencing this bug?
 
Looks like PSN is down. Was playing BF4 and got kicked off (which, even after the patches, happens daily), so I figured it was another error and went to hop back on. However, it looks like it's more than just BF.
 
I personally cannot stand using the PS4 in-game server browser.

If you have even a cheap Windows PC/laptop use Better Battlelog http://getbblog.com/en/ for your web browser. I use Chrome, haven't tried it with IE, FireFox or Opera yet.

It's far easier to do everything for your PS4 soilder that way, from managing your Battlelog, to multiplayer / server browser, and having the 2nd screen for the Battlescreen map is a massive plus.
HOLY SHIT.. I did not know you can do that. I was using that annoying little button on the PS controller and it bugged the shit out of me.Thank you so much. Will try it out tonight.

My friend had the exact same problem last night. He deleted the 2 China Rising data files and redownloaded them again and then it worked.
So one file is the small unlock file and the other is the 3.6 Gb add on.

Yeah.

I completely gave up trying to play multiplayer on PS4 without that option.
 
PSN is up again, for me. Just joined a Conquest game.

Edit:

Just finished two grueling Conquest Large games in China Rising; Guilin Peaks & Dragon Pass.

My team won both, but holycraaaaap those were both intense battles. On Guilin Peaks it started out nearly empty, but then players started streaming in. Everyone was swarming around objective D for control of the bomber.

Good stuff.

Time to get some sleeeep....

I do not use WiFi with PS4, I hardwired it LAN / ethernet to the back of my Comcast gateway/router.
Nothing to do with my connection, hard wired as well.
Would not allow me to download, it just have me an error. Neither from the ps store or the game menu.
 
Even though I used the China Rising code on PS4 it was still asking me to buy it. I tried the code again and the pass definitely downloaded in the past. I figured I had to search for china rising on the PlayStation store, despite still saying it was £12.99 I had two options in a drop down menu. One was free, and the other was the price. So I just went on free and it started downloading. Odd.

I can see the free one but it has no photo or am I able to download it.
 
This MTAR assignment can go screw itself...

Along with the SUAV assignment.
The MTAR assignment is actually pretty easy. But yeah, I can't seem to get it done either :/
the only trouble I had with the MTAR was getting a grenade kill. I used the field upgrade Grenadier for an extra nade. also, team DM would be easier with the smaller map and clustered enemies.

SUAV is a bitch too, it's rare to actually get into the trailer and even when I finally get into the bomber I have no fucking clue whats I'm doing.

Pilot, your Titan is ready, prepare for Titanbombs
Not sure. When I switched the drop down menu to free it automatically started downloading.
Just to confirm that is what happened to me. I redeemed my code last week.

I had the choice of buying it or selecting the 'free' version. Not exactly user friendly for some people, the steps to download it.
 
Is anyone else in the UK getting the E-82000113 error when trying to download China Rising? I pre-ordered it on PS4 from GAME and it says that the download will be free; but when I try to download it, it gives me the "This item can not be purchased right now (E-8200113)". I got the same message when trying to download it last night.

I didn't have a problem getting the SUAV but the UCAV? Yeah I resigned myself to the fact that I'll never unlock that.

Douchebag. Yes, me.
I can't believe how they expect you to redeem your free China Rising DLC. If it wasn't for this thread, I would have never figured it out.

I pre-purchased the digital PS4 version-

Every link from the dashboard and the store made it look like I didn't own it and had to pay 14.99. According to my "Owned DLC" under the game dashboard, I did own it... but it wouldn't let me into the maps or let me download it without paying.

I had to do some roundabout thing where I had to manually navigate to where it existed in the store, then where the "buy for 14.99" button was I had to press down on the D-Pad and there was an option to download it for free.

WTF!

And the gun is so good.... glad I got it early while people were still marveling at the new maps and not actively competing.

Pro Tip: Sneak over to a position that overlooks the Bomber trailer while the enemy still has it, that line of people waiting are fish in a barrel for whatever type of kill you're still lacking.
 
Welcome to Battlefield Launch...any of them.
Exactly. This has happened to every single DICE/EA game since Bad Company 2, including BF1943 and the Medal of Honor games. Yes, it blows, but this is nothing new at all. Typically I give every DICE/EA game a month post-launch to bugfix and prepare servers.

Currently, I'm playing on PS4 and 360 and they both run great; no problems finding matches, playing with friends, chat, freezes, kicks, or lost progress.
 
Just had an amazing chat with an EA support rep regarding the China Rising PS3 to PS4 crossover.

Chat Transcript
info: Your approximate wait time is 0 minute.
info: You are now ready to chat with Mohit.
Mohit: Thanks for contacting EA Customer Experience, my name is Mohit. How may I assist you today?
you: Hi
Mohit: Hello.
Mohit: How may I help you today?
you: I upgraded my PS3 disc version of BF4 to the PS4 version via PSN but it hasn't carried over the free China Rising expansion. Can you help?
Mohit: I apologize for the inconvenience caused. I'll do my best to address your concern.
you: Thank you
Mohit: I would like to tell you that when you upgraded the ps3 version to ps4 then the china rising will not come along with it on your ps4.
Mohit: So please you have to purchase the new china rising dlc for the ps4.
you: That's hardly clear in the upgrade path. I doubt I will bother buying Premium now. That seems very underhand to make a loyal customer pay twice.
Mohit: Not buy the premium just buy the china rising dlc to play the dlc.
Mohit: Trust me had it been possible then I will definitely done it for you.
you: I understand that but I will not be doing so. I think it's disgraceful to pay for DLC I got free for preordering as a loyal BF player.
Mohit: Yes you will get it on the ps3 but as you said that you upgraded the ps3 disc version to ps4 so it will not come along with it.
Mohit: I am really very sorry for that.
Mohit: But As a token of appreciation I would like to provide you the 15%discount coupon code which will help in your next purchase of the game.
Mohit: This was your 15%discount coupon code:DRBB-3JL6-xxxx-GU8F-xxxx
you: I doubt I'll be buying anything to do with Battlefield from now as I'll be trading BF4 in immediately but thanks for your offer.
Mohit: Your welcome.
Mohit: I understand your felling how annoying is this.
you: Please feedback to your company that for penny pinching over 12.79 of DLC they've lost a Premium Customer who spends close to £100 a year on BF plus Premium.
Mohit: And I am really very sorry for the disappointment that cause to you.
you: It'll cause more disappointment to your company's shareholders when people vote with their wallets. Thanks for your time.
Mohit: I apologize for the trouble.
Mohit: Your welcome.
Mohit: It's been a pleasure to assist you. I would like to thank you for contacting EA Support and wish you a good Time. Please don't hesitate to contact us again in the future.
Mohit: Nice to chat with you.
Mohit: Have a nice day.
Mohit: Take care.
Mohit: Bbye.

Absolutely epic customer service by EA. I can't support that. Bye bye BF4.
