BATTLEFIELD SEASON 4

Fri Mar 24, 2017 11:18 am
Hello everyone,

The current season will end soon, rewards will be sent based on the final ranking after the season ends. Besides, there will be some change in the upcoming Season 4, please see details below.
 
Offseason
  1. Offseason has been introduced in this update. Players cannot join battlefield in this short period of time after the end of the current Season and before the start of new Season 4.
  2. Players’ battlefield league will remain for a while before new season starts. Players can still purchase items in the Battlefield Shop based on the current Battlefield Level.
  3. Player’s ranking will remain visible in the leaderboard. (There will be a delay in syncing the final leaderboard on your end. Don’t worry if you find the ranking changes after the Season 3 ends.)
  4. If you start a battle before the offseason, and finish it after offseason begins. There won’t be any change to you league points.

*purpose of the offseason is to provide convenience to you to check your final ranking and purchase items that still require certain ranking.
 
Matchmaking Rule
There will be some modification on the high league matchmaking rules trying to prevent boosting behavior for better game play experience.
 
Change on Season 4 Reward – PVP Armors
New Armors ‘Behemoth’ (1538) and ‘Nirvana’(1618) will be added in the Battlefield Armor Chest (Blue) for each class in Season 4.
  1. Armor ‘Behemoth’ (1538) can be obtained from Gold III or higher level chests;
  2. ‘Nirvana’(1618) can be obtained from Platinum II or higher level chests.
  3. Some armors from previous updates will be moved to earlier stages.
 
New loot rules has been added in the Battlefield Armor Chest (Blue) of all stage in Season 4. We’ve increased the weight of new armor sets among the rest of the rewards, making it easier for players to get new armors in the new Season.
 
Crafting materials for higher level armors has been added in Battlefield Daily Chest in Season 4.
  1. The daily chest of Gold III and Gold II will provide ‘Phoenix Ashes’;
  2. The daily chest of Gold I and Platinum I will provide ‘Tainted Fossil of the Great Creation’ (For ‘Behemoth’);
  3. The daily chest of Platinum II or higher will provide ‘Corroded Fossil of the Great Creation’ (For ’Nirvana’)
 
Change on Season 4 Reward – PVP Weapon
  1. New Weapon stage ‘Quicksand’ has been added for all type of PVP weapon in Season 4. The chest of Platinum I or higher level will provide upgrading materials. Some upgrading materials for previous weapons will be moved to earlier stages.
  2. Loot rules for materials in chest has been modified in Season 4. Drop rate of different materials has been adjusted to almost the same level, hoping more players can get what they want instead of playing for a specific material repeatedly because of bad luck.
  3. Drop rate for old materials has been increased in Season 4.

Thanks for the info Lily. 

Have you guys given any thought to extending the season length and maybe adding better rewards for top 10 or something like that??

Right now you are turning over two sets of gear and a weapon very fast and it's quite a grind to get all the way back to diamond and open hundreds of chests. The drop rates being increased may help but the number of queues you get in diamond and high plat is really bad so grinding materials is frustrating when you spent all that time just getting there. 

Maybe it's just me but the seasons seem way too short.

OMFG GAMELOFT WTF thanks a lot im gonna quit this fuking madness!! do you seriously think this is sane?! first 2 season theres was same pvp gear thats ok, now there was lvl cap so u bring 2 new set of gear, 90% of ppl didn't even get this new gear yet!! and why the fuk did we even bother playing in season 3 and fighting so hard to get diamond rank?! so next season this gear is going to be in silver rank?!!!! why even bother playing if its all a fuking big waste of time, we can stay silver rank every season and don't waste our time, or don't play at all because whats the point?!?! people want to work hard and fight to get the best gear, then we need some time to actually enjoy this gear! we berely got 5/5 1499gs gear and next week its gonna be worthless! u really do know how to make every single player quit your game ive never seen such an ignorat bounch of morons, i hope you bankrupt and stop luring poor people into your awfully designed impossible games.


if your goal was to eliminate the advantage boosters got in season 3 towards season 4 you could simply make the current gear obtainable in 1 or 2 ranks lower so people at gold 1 or plat 3 enjoy 3/3 warsuit bonus perhaps, you can also reduce the pvp strength which makes phoenix weapons deal absurd amounts of dmg making fights more fair.

im done chasing ghosts month after month for no reason..... you broke me seriously, i was advocating in favor of oac2 for a while now but this is a catastrophy.

PLEASE think about this GAMELOFT. you are going to repeat your previous nistakes. NOW players who are currently in diamond rank at the moment will start farming as much Blue Diamond League Chests as they Can, then once the Season has resetted and Update has rolled. they will start opening the blue diamond chests that they have kept and get the new armors in diamond league WHICH will give them very BIG advatage getting those new 1600 gs PVP ARMORS!!! this has already happed in the previous season 3, PLEASE DONT MAKE THIS HAPPEN AGAIN. tmdo something about this gameloft as this will be very very unfair.

OMG Gameloft, you really know how to mess up this game....
Cant you think how much time it took to go up to diamond ranking to get new gear and weapon. And that all was just for nothing. Now you again need to reach diamond ranking anyhow without the need to get any chests in all the other levels below. Again all will not play for fun, but to reach higher rank and get better gear.
DONT BIND RANK AND GEAR!!!!!!!!!
Let us enjoy the game not force endless farming again. Easiest way to prevent boosting is to remove the sense of boosting...

Change the damage output compared to the defense of you gear dont add new and even better weapons!!!

Yes its becoming ridiculous.They are doing the same now with pvp as they did with pve, just throw out new gear to chase after, make the old, hard earned and payed for stuff redundant without really adding new gameplay content. What is the point in farming all this stuff when it just becomes worthless with the next update? Im tired of it.

Seasons are way to short! 6-12 Month would be ok

most people are not done with season 2 gear/weapon and you bring again new stages and gear

the range from geared and low geared player is getting bigger every time and will destroy the game more with every update

think about this

alot people alrdy quitted playing bf and i dont do this ****** again every 3 months

best regards

Gameloft! People are hoarding blue chests again in hoping to get the new pvp gear next season. This happened last season when folks had some blue chests saved up and it carried over to the next season. These players got the new gears instantanly without playing BF. Im hoping you already plug the hole on this one. Thats all thank tou very much.
