Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Ringtones

Geo Leaderboard Challenge: Score per Minute


Who are the top guns in Battlefield 4? The Geo Leaderboards have the answer. Found on Battlelog, these top lists display anything from who has the best Kill/Death ratio in Battlefield 4, to the player with the most hours in-game. Now, we have a Leaderboard challenge for you.

Capture

Get the Highest Score per Minute

We are challenging the Battlefield 4 community to fight for the #1 place in the Score per Minute section of the Geo Leaderboards. The players that have the highest Score per Minute on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One (Division 1 section, worldwide) on May 14, 8AM PST will be crowned as winners, earning immense bragging rights. The winners will be officially announced in our channels later on May 14.

SPM

You can achieve a good Score per Minute in many ways. Anything between killing enemies and repairing vehicles will earn you points, and keep in mind that playing the objective is key. In other words, capture control points in Conquest or help out with holding down/attacking an M-Com Stations in Rush, and you’ll see that score soaring.

So what are you waiting for? Jump in Battlefield 4, get that SPM up, and fight for top place!

The Road Ahead: Introducing the Community Test Environment


Since the launch of Battlefield 4, our players have been pivotal in giving us valuable feedback. Today we’re launching the Community Test Environment in our continuous efforts to make the game even more enjoyable and engage with our fans in new ways.

cte

Improve Battlefield 4 with Us
The Community Test Environment (CTE) will provide passionate fans the chance to evolve Battlefield 4 with us and become a part of the development process. We’ll be able to test new ideas and solutions to current issues before we roll them out to all Battlefield players.

Among the first things we will work on is the “Netcode,” which is what the player experiences with the game world including player-to-player interactions like damage registration. This involves tweaking to the “tickrate” servers and networking in general.

By launching this new program, not only will we be able to address player feedback at an early stage, but also increase the overall quality of the game. We are excited to explore the possibilities together with you.

How to Access the CTE
This community program will be available on PC only. However, the goal is for our learnings to benefit all platforms when possible. To access the CTE, you will need to be a Battlefield 4 Premium member. Players will have to download a separate game client, then connect to an infrastructure and Battlelog version solely set up for testing purposes.

  1. Visit http://cte.battlelog.com/bf4/communitytest/
  2. Read and accept the Terms of Service and Agreement
  3. Log into Origin with your existing account username and password (your account must have Premium activated in order to proceed)
  4. Start Origin and download the new Battlefield 4 CTE game client that now should be visible
  5. Install the Battlelog browser plugin
  6. Get familiar with the guidelines by visiting the Forums on http://cte.battlelog.com/bf4/forum/

Initially, only Battlefield 4 Premium members will be able to opt-in, and there will be a limit to how many can join. We do have plans to expand to a larger player base in the future after we test this new program. If you feel that you want to provide constructive feedback to make Battlefield 4 an even better game – then you’re more than welcome to apply to the CTE.

Minecraft snapshot 14w19a

This weeks snapshot is fairly small in the scheme of things as we’ve been focusing on optimizations and furthering spectator mode.

Notable changes:

  • World border received a bunch of new options & improvements.
  • Spectator mode has a preminimary interface for teleporting to other players. It’s far from complete though!
  • Loose change.

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

Introducing Squad Join Beta


Connecting and playing with your friends has always been a central aspect of the Battlefield multiplayer experience. To help make this easier, we are now releasing Squad Join Beta for Battlefield 4. This is something we know our fans have been asking for – and something we wish we could have provided at launch – so we are now happy to present the first iteration of Squad Join.

Squad Up Before Battle

Squad Join Beta allows you to set up a squad for up to 5 people before joining a multiplayer server. This means that you and 4 of your friends can join a Battlefield 4 match as a squad, and deploy directly in the game together. Once in-game, you and your squad mates are guaranteed to stick together over rounds.

We would like to add that Squad Join Beta is the first iteration of the feature. We will continue to add features and tweaks based on your feedback and comments, and are aiming to release the next version of Squad Join when Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth arrives this summer. Also note that Squad Join Beta is available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Before digging into the details, check out this Squad Join Beta tutorial video (note that this clip shows a work in progress).

How It’s Done

To join Battlefield 4 as part of a squad, simply choose “Squad Join Beta” in the game’s multiplayer menu. Here you will be able to see a list of active squads, or create your own. A list of the five slots will appear, with the squad leader indicated by a star. When you’re good to go, just initiate quickmatch to join a game, and you’ll be in-game with your squad mates, ready to bring your team to victory.

Also, if you’ve left your squad and want to re-join it, you can do so – if the squad has a free slot. Joining this way will enable you to both join the squad and the match at the same time.

Other Squad Join Features

As mentioned, this is the first iteration of Squad Join and other features for it are planned, with the first major update coming within the next months (a more exact date will be communicated later). In this multi-release process, we are working on features like managing party members, and making Squad Join available for all game modes.

Initially, Squad Join Beta will be available in the Battlefield 4 base game maps in the Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Rush, and Domination game modes. All the other Battlefield 4 maps and more game modes will be supported in later iterations of Squad Join.

Give us Your Feedback

Your comments and feedback are valuable to us. We’d really like to hear your input about Squad Join Beta and make you a part of improving this feature. Please leave your comments below. We hope you will enjoy trying out Squad Join Beta, and that it will make your time in Battlefield 4 even more enjoyable.
