I think we have our first Flawless Raiders as of last night.
A group of four brave Guardians embarked on a mission into the depths of the Hellmouth, intent of finding and killing the Son of Oryx, the legendary Crota.
A team of Titans made up of @Jousting @DrewePeacock and myself and our secret weapon @Skarpar descended into the abyss, a one way trip we may never return from.
Quickly deciding on our plan of action the Titans decide that the party hunter @Skarpar should be given the first opportunity to die, he takes on the task heroically and runs off into the darkness while we sit and discuss our fashion choices for the evening. Just minutes later we hear distant screaming, gunshots and explosions. Showing our concern we decide to have a bit of a dance while we waited to see if our valiant hunter made it.....he did, and in record time too, we're all dragged dancing through a void and landing back with our good friend @Skarpar confronted by a broken bridge and some overgrown douchbag with a sword.
A brief conflab between the team and we decide that our hunter did such a good job of the first section that we'd let him...
DICE is committed to constantly improving Battlefield 4 to make your multiplayer experience as entertaining, intuitive, and reliable as possible. Based on great feedback from the community, the Winter Update is now here – filled with various improvements to Battlefield 4. Let’s dive right into the tweaks we’ve made.

Major improvements have been made to the Battlefield 4 network layer. Making the “Netcode” better allows for a more exact multiplayer experience for all participants, and this has been done in various ways. For instance, we’ve done long range network updates by adding a cone to the High Frequency Update (30hz), illustrated in the image below.
Other Netcode improvements we’ve done:
- Network prioritization and filtering has been improved. This now prioritizes health/damage, enemy players and vehicles above all.
- Vehicles now use a larger (front) hemi-sphere shape for collision improvements
- Aiming down sights, or zooming in sitting in a vehicle or on foot, utilizes an even longer range cone for better target acquisition at a...
As you will no doubt have noticed, we have a new theme.
For some time now we have been thinking of how to make the website friendlier on mobile devices and this theme does just that. If you try it on a mobile phone or small tablet you will see the off-canvas navigation on the left and the user menu (when you click on your name) on the right.
You'll notice that the navigation is now sticky, so it's available whenever you are posting rather than having to scroll right to the top of the page again. There are also floating up and down arrows available on the site to quickly navigate those long threads (e.g. PlayStation Store updates). There's also a current post navigation extra that appears on the right of the navigation bar (desktop only) which lets you navigate through posts in the thread.
Other highlights are:
- Collapsible categories on the forum list (click on the minus symbol on the right of the brown category strip
- Changes to the header (the logo isn't as big now on various devices)
- Tweaked colour scheme to get rid of the orangey tones in some parts that didn't really work. We've changed to a complimentary colour palette
- Sticky sidebar that partly stays in position during some of the scrolling on the forums list page, meaning there's no large gap at the bottom as their used to be
- Changes to various icons including forum 'bubbles' and the buttons in the text editor
- NEW posts indicator on the forums list
- Side-by-side forums on the forums...
