Almost forgot............

Black spawn screen ?
Load times, both at the beginning and between rounds ?
Friendly gas suppression ?
I saw a video that talked about the revive bug and that DICE had found it's a much trickier problem and may take some time to fix. Part of the problem is that it doesn't happen all the time so they're having problems recreating it consistently. It may be down to multiple factors and finding exactly what those factors are is going to be the tricky bit apparently.

I don't know the first thing about coding but how hard could it be to spot the code changing when the bug appears? surely the code must be different in order for the guns not to fire?

I'm starting to wonder if all these Dice workers live on site, as I won't fancy their chances of finding their way home at the end of the day.....

I'm online tonight if ya wanna give DICE the heads up, as it consistently happens to me :laugh:
I'm sure they could "tap in" to me while I play :)

It's the bug I suffer most from as well so would love it if they fixed it. The only good thing about it is if you get it it means you've actually got medics on your side doing their job :rotfl:

They have to be able to recreate the bug to find it, think of the amount of data at any given point, be impossible tracking exactly what's gone tits up
But there can't be that much data, you only need to concentrate on two xbox's data (the man who is being killed and his team mate who is reviving him) do it in a private match with 4 killing the one man over and over and his team mate reviving him, Christ on a bike the amount of times it happens, I find it very hard to believe they can't see it happening or for that matter replay the code should it happen.....

You'd have loved it last night:mad: when we played on the back to basics server where the only primary gun you are allowed to use is a iron sights sniper rifle that has been predetermined by dice in the server....... no tanks, no planes.... On more than one occasion I was ready to lob the TV out the window.
I was just angry for the rest of the night.

Is he reloading when he's killed?
Standing or kneeling?
Ads or not?
Is the secondary weapon a variable?

There's millions of combinations of possibilities each having a possible effect. I know what you're saying but because it's intermittent it must be a monumental task to try and find why

Improved cavalry victim experience. You should no longer get killed by cavalry using a saber from multiple meters away.

That wording seems a little odd to me.

Does that mean the cavalry was actually a lot closer when they killed my in game character with a saber? A lot of the time I am facing the horse that is charging towards me and they are very far away when I get killed with a saber.

I think the "hit box" with the sabre was the issue, resulting in death from what seemed to far away for the sabre to hit you.
