EA, DICE Say They’re Fixing Battlefield 3 Known Issues
EA answered some questions this morning about working to fix Battlefield 3‘s online gameplay, but DICE has just dumped a big blog post that outlines five of the major areas that are being worked on in order to make sure the game works properly. Read the full post here.
The five areas being dealt with are Quick Play functionality, Squad functionality, Origin activation, server maintenance and stopping cheating. It sounds like Quick Play has been a bit of a problem for lots of players, preventing players from getting into games quickly. Allowing players to get into the squads they want to is also causing major issues, but the blog post claims it’s part of the Quick Play issue that is making it difficult for players to join squads with their friends in quick play matches.
The Origin authentication issue, which was barring players from setting up their games on PC with EA’s online portal, has reportedly been fixed, and EA and DICE say they’re working to keep their servers in tip-top shape, as well. As for cheaters, DICE says it’s keeping an eye out and updating Punkbuster and rolling out additional anti-cheating fixes, as well.
It’s been about a week since the release of Battlefield 3, and it’s nice to see EA (finally) acknowledging what problems Battlefield has and bringing players up to speed on their fixes. The game is reportedly back up on its feet, but if you’re still having problems, DICE says it wants to hear about them.
