Battlefield V Quality of Life Commitment


vfe1hm99nt8ljpg

Hey Battlefield V Community,

With Battlefield V available worldwide and the Tides of War live service in full swing, it's important that we continue to pour our passion into continued improvement of the base game in parallel to development of upcoming content. Our commitment to Battlefield V's quality of life will result in a more enjoyable gameplay experience day-in and day-out, while fortifying the great game that BFV is as we introduce new experiences through the Tides of War Chapters. Inherently, this also allows for a strong dialog between the Battlefield team and you, the community.

We are laser-focused on addressing many of the outstanding bugs that we've identified internally, and which have been reported to us from within our community. We dig into these below.

Issue Identification and Communication Process
But before we dive into the top issues that we're working on this week, it's important to detail the process in which we identify, prioritize, and begin to address them. The process we've adopted is as follows:
  • Identify Issues – Pulling from all sources to determine all outstanding game issues, including and not limited to social channels, customer support teams, direct from the community, in-game data, internal bug trackers, community-maintained bug trackers, etc.
  • Define Severity – Determine severity of each issue based on the number of players affected and the impact to systems (economy, retention, game experience, etc.).
  • Weekly Syncs – Community and Development teams meet frequently to circle on latest issues, set priorities, and establish timelines.
  • Community Communication – Provide the community with insight on issues we are prioritizing for the week and an ETA on proposed fix.
  • Issue Resolution Communication – Once we've resolved an issue, we'll let you know!
