After playing BF3 for several months on multiplayer and maxing out my soldier I decided to buy BF4 thinking it was going to be an extension of that game or at least better, unfortunately I was wrong.
Lets start with the positives from BF3 with BF4 you can now spot people better, they give autofocus for the guns now which I don't believe BF3 had, some people like this some people don't, I personally think it helps leveling the playing field which should theoretically make the games closer. More things you can blow up and buildings even crumble if hit alot of times. Doesn't freeze as much as BF3 from my experience
Now onto the negatives, they switched the controls around pretty drastically with the R3 now being the knife button and R2 being the spot/talk button(which I don't find the talk feature helpful), Not a big fan of the maps and wish they would've carried over the BF3 maps or at least some of them.
Team deathmatch rounds are limited to 100 tickets
Team deathmatch rounds with 100 tickets take as long as a 400 ticket conquest round(roughly 13-20 minutes) this in itself is a huge turnoff as I mostly play deathmatch as I'm now basically forced to play conquest to level up fast event while getting less kills.
I had things freeze one time which is better than BF3(at least for me BF3 had MAJOR freezing issues) but I could live with that.
Load times between deaths is HORRIBLE you need to wait roughly 15 seconds between deaths now rather than being able to opt in quickly like in BF3.
I'm sure there are other things I will find but I'm just frustrated and its still early.

This game is awesome and the multiplayer so addictive But one bad part about it is it called evolution its a lot of fun to do them in multiplayer but the bad part about 90% your system will freeze but its just not only you will freeze and 95% the game will lag during the evolution events but most of the time it will not so yeah its worth it even to buy it and get the premium edition
so yeah if you want to compete so send me friends request on psn online id is
