    I'm on PC, so my figuring is, if this hot fix changes nothing for me, that's a positive. If anything gets worse, it's going to be the final absolute sign that DICE has seriously lost control of the game code.

    Hopefully it will improve the situation for the Xbox crowd.

    I wonder how much actual testeing they do with theese hotfixes considering how broken the last one whas?

    I´m starting to think that the best way to go would be to paus TOW and new content, stop doing hotfixes and just make one big push on one big patch for perfomance, stabilty issues and big game-breaking bugs together with massive testing off course. They made a big change in the middle of BF1 life that affected the regular updates for the game, they went from 2-3 months between patcheds to 1 month?

    I work as a developer on a smaller company and we spend at least 2 weeks of testing before we release new updates for the rest of the company, no matter the size of the update or the number of fixes. If the patches or updates dont get tested or dont work we dont release them until they are tested, accepted or fixed.

    My bet is that it will fix nothing for me on PC cause it is directed @ the Xbox console.

    I predict 100% the dreaded Infinite Loading screen will return eventually on all platforms.

    One step forward, two steps back. You know new bugs will be introduced.

    Hopefully we can join any map we want for XBOX1.  Instead of freezing up and dashboarded then have to reload it and try again.  Luckily last night first try worked for conquest on Fjell.

    One step forward, two steps back, step on an AP mine wait 10 seconds for it to blow, then get blown 35 steps back by a completely silent tank and land at an invisible soldier's feet

    I love that this is what ea call a “hotfix”. Anyone who works in software would consider a hotfix something that pretty much gets out in a day and fixes something.

    My bet is....it'll likely be fixed...for the moment

    However, it will be fixed...until the next update breaks something yet again, because they refuse to nerf ttk, which is the likely culprit of these ttd and other snafu.

    The game will never be fixed to a reasonable extent now.
    These guys are always gonna be chasing bugs

    Oh, I remember when Origin / +Battlelog at the time,  was being introduced, "Hotfixes" were one of the big selling points. Patches could be done in small same day patches / fixes for Battlefield, no longer would we have to wait weeks or months . I have seen that happen once, that I remember, oh and surprise, that was a couple weeks back when they accidentally gave away  skins that were meant to be behind a paywall.
