I think it's sad that gamers these days play Battlefield games to unlock guns and earn XP instead of to do the thing that has made the series great since BF 1942, which didn't have any unlocks.
I lost over 70k in a single game. That was the last straw for me. It was my best game yet in bf4. Game over for me.
When I said "my best game", I was referring to my score and not my level of enjoyment. I tend to enjoy pretty much every game when it's not crashing. The points just add another layer of enjoyment for some of us.
You are right though, it is sad. These games have become more like work in that we have to score points in order to unlock the gear that we want to use.
When a person scores 74,540 points and gets all psyched because he just unlocked 4 things and got 3 medals in one game only to have it all erased with a crash, it is sad. It's more than sad, it's down right f&^%ing annoying especially since I have probably lost a half a million points or more since launch. It was so annoying because the game just ended, showed me my scores and then the server crashed. I had another game where I lost over 50k from a server crash. It can take 5-10 games to score 74,000 points sometimes. I understand what you're saying but games have changed a lot since BF 1942. I actually grew to enjoy the unlock system because it gives me goals to work towards but when my time is wasted constantly and I have to unlock the same items 6 times before it sticks, it's time to find something else to do. Hell, I got promoted to level 6 five times due to the crashing. I tried to be patient but I'm done.
