Is there a link anywhere that has details about what's included int the 4GB update from this morning? I notice some game play changes such as being able to better see enemy and team icons but guessing that's not the extend of it.

    Not exactly sure, but seems like every thread I come across is talking about a problem since the update.....not looking forward to the update when I get off work....

    Was able to play one CQ game after the update. Server crashed right when the game ended. Still got the kills but no one received XP for the game.

    Completely the opposite, you now really can't tell enemy players at any decent distance at all.

    I don't think it matters what region you're on.

    Game feels really smooth for me now but that doesn't count for much when you can't tell who is an enemy or a friendly except at close range.

    You're correct, I went back into another game and anything all color indicators for anything mid-far range is now muted to nearly transparent. It's worse than before. Even looking down a street on Amiens you can no longer tell if you're looking at friend or enemy. I saw multiple team mates fire at an ally thinking it was the enemy.

    Hard to believe DICE doesn't have details about what's changed after a 4GB update.

    On the grassy maps you can't see the green team mate icons, on the desert maps you can't see the red enemy icons, I haven't played the snowy maps today but I expect you can't see any of them.
    Anything over mid-range and I can't even see the icons at all.

    I was (still) trying to do the 'shoot down planes' LMG challenge this evening...
    On Sinai desert, I enlarged the mini-map and realised I was trying to shoot down a friendly plane that was being chased by a friendly plane that was being shot at by a friendly tank.

    That just about sums up how bad it is.

    Same here. I can't tell enemies from friendlies. Enemy icons don't show up at all at any significant distance. I can spot an enemy plane, but I don't see any icon after doing so.

    "Fixed the issue where the gameplay options for controlling the visibility of the world icons for enemy and friendly soldiers were not working properly."

    'Fixed' is an optimistic way of looking at it. I can think of a more appropriate 'F' word.

    I'm sure they'll fix that issue soon, until then looks like we all will be shooting at anything that moves lol.

    I just bought a 4K monitor in prep for the X1X next month, the difference between it and my tv was incredible (and being able to turn on RBG on my Xbox)...
    But even with this monitor I can't tell enemy from friendly, half the time I can't see the icons at all.
    Basically it's Assault class time in every game until they fix this, there's little point using anything that needs a bit of range.

    "Fixed the issue where the gameplay options for controlling the visibility of the world icons for enemy and friendly soldiers were not working properly." Where is this option to control the visibility of the world icons?

    They haven't fixed it, they've broken it.
    I think the options are in 'Video'.

    I have a sinking feeling the new visibility settings for seeing teammate and enemy icons are by design. This would have been tested in the CTE before being pushed into production.
