What the heck has happened to BF4? When I first purchased this game it was just get out there and have some fun. Some where along the way DICE/EA made the decision to rank the online player community, at least this is my speculation. Now you are always going to have a group of gamers that just naturally adapt to PC and console game play. A good portion of this is due to age, introduction of platform interface and how quickly one responds to cause/effect scenarios. When the code is modified to adjust for recognition of the statistically "better" players verses the average players things start to go wrong. First of all everyone should be considered equals due to the simple fact all of us lightened our wallets to buy the game, this is the number one primary condition. Monetarily speaking we all are equal unless you want to discuss velocity of money and inflation then you fork off into another direction. My point is ranking killed this game. Who wants to continually be a responsive target for the “better” players, I know this is not for me. Let us take 'Locker' as a example. I think everyone would agree that the team assigned to the right, generally wins most of the games as the higher ranked players get assigned to that team on a regular basis. What was the point in this? No doubt, move players on to the next game as we see EA pushing BF5 I believe. Personally, it appears loyalty is a one way street to DICE and EA. They want your money then they define the rules of the game beyond the game play protocol. This will be my last DICE/EA game. I am older than a lot of you, yes my reaction time is much slower and I make no excuse nor ask for charity for this. I get a laugh out of the antics I see on here but the reduction in the effectiveness of my weapons due to my lower rank does not encourage me to fork out more coin. I know for a fact that my weapons have been reduced in accuracy and firepower simply by how my on screen opponent responds to shots received in a firefight. This comment will get hammered but who cares, until people realize that you buy the game you are the boss! Actually this philosophy applies to most anything, try it some time you might be surprised. Lack of this realization will always place people in a slave to corporate greed are perhaps in Sweden's case just socialist ideology and they cannot perceive individualism. BF4, great game for awhile!
