February is Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month

The Battlefield Blog announces that February is "Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month," a chance to reward loyal Battlefield 4 players for the growing pains they've suffered with since the launch of DICE's military shooter sequel. Oddly, most of this seems to involve inspiring players to play more by offering rewards that require them to play less. Or something like that. They say: "We’re going to have more information available on each of the Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month activities throughout February. Check back here for those details." Here's a bit of what they are saying in the meantime:
A Battlepack a Day
Every day that you log into the game in February, you’ll receive a Bronze or Silver Battlepack. For those of you who haven’t started opening your earned packs yet, these Battlepacks contain bonuses like XP Boosts and soldier camos. Normally, it would take approximately 30 hours gameplay to earn that many packs. Every day that you log a multiplayer game during the month of February, you will receive a new Battlepack. During weekdays, these will be Bronze, and during Saturdays and Sundays we will give away Silver Battlepacks. Remember to activate your earned XP boosts in the in-game menu to accelerate your progress.

Shortcut Bundles
We are preparing two shortcut bundles for Battlefield 4 that we will make available for download at no cost during the Player Appreciation Month. These voluntary shortcut bundles will unlock all grenades and handguns for Battlefield 4 (the base game) so you can make up for lost time. Or if you’re new to the game, they will help you catch up with players who have been on the Battlefield since launch. We will get back to you with more details once we have set release dates for these items.

For all of our Battlefield 4 Premium users, we’re adding two additional weapon shortcuts, unlocking DMR’s and shotguns. That way, if you like, you can quickly get your hands on a large portion of the weapons available in Battlefield 4.

Double XP Weekend
During the Player Appreciation Month, we’ll be running a double XP weekend for all players. If you’re one of our many Battlefield 4 Premium members, you’ll also get an additional double XP weekend during the Player Appreciation Month as an added bonus.

I'd appreciate it if they gave all money money back, delete all my BF Games and I'd promise never to buy A BF title again (no problems since I am already committed to that--!)

I wish we could get another AAA title like how Wolf:ET was with campaign unlocks.. and a series of maps.. and then a reset after the campaign ended.
That way.. we could go back to having servers that players own, modding, community made maps.. and less overheard where the devs put so much garbage into a game.. that it ruins the game (levelution comes to mind.. i hate it).

Is there a new AAA title coming out anytime soon? And no.. i dont mean 6v6 Titanfall either.. that game has me all sorts of nervous

god damn.. i'd love a new UT right now..or a future'ish Enemy Territory (done right.. not like QW)..

You won't see that again from the big publishers. They are firmly attached to the DLC teat, and letting us make maps and control servers cuts into that sweet sweet milk.

I'd look for a kickstarter game instead.

I am aware I might also have a slight disadvantage being new to it... but easier to blame it on the guns

I could use the all pistols unlock one, too lazy to play in a pistol only server.

If the next patch breaks more than it fixes this will be the end of the great BF4 experiment.

It took me like 2 hours tops to unlock all the pistols in a pistol only server running 24/7 Locker.

Don't waste your money on something you can do in a short amount of time.

Read it again and pay attention this time. FREE.

Yup.

Starting MG with a couple attachments and starting rifle are pretty damn good. I have most stuff unlocked, and I still use the "early" items.

I just got it a week ago, so this works great for me.

Annoying running around with a BB gun to start with, while everyone else has the equivalent of a "machine gun rocket launcher "

Yeah, taking advantage of all those shortcuts myself. I play often, but I still haven't unlocked everything.

So, now all I'll have to do is unlock the attachments. Yay!

And one battlepack per day? Sweet.

I'm probably one of the customers they are 'targeting' with this promo, and it sounds great to me. I'll take as much advantage of these bonuses as I can.

ps Still love the game, all faults aside.

Those 3 less free battlepacks... Dice are such jerks :-p

This is fine by me. I haven't had many issues with the game recently and I hate the battlepack system because I always get junk for weapons I don't use, so the more free battlepacks the better! I'm also super excited to get to unlock all the shotguns and dmrs without having to grind through them, as those are the last weapons I have left to unlock and at least with shotguns I can never find a good time to use them.

This at least will give me a reason to get back into playing this a bit.
One pack a day sounds like a lot battle packs.
I wonder if you can get multiple items, otherwise this will be a lot of camo and custom skins for basically nothing.
