The changes from the CTE are due to be implemented with the next game update due in September. Having played on the CTE the changes have been pretty good and make the game a lot more enjoyable to play. The changes to Rush and the medic Triage system are especially good. Here is a list of the main changes you can expect.
As some of you may know, our team at DICE LA is working hard to finish the next game update for Battlefield 4, aiming at a release in September. Meanwhile, we’re continuing to utilize the Battlefield 4 Community Test Environment to gather feedback and make various improvements to the game.

Core Gameplay Update

The current CTE initiative revolves around making the core gameplay of Battlefield 4 even better. This initiative has been in full swing for little over two months now, and we’ve made a lot tweaks and changes that we hope you have enjoyed. As we’re nearing the end of this initiative and the release of the next Battlefield 4 update, these are the major fixes that it will include:

Game Mode Improvements

General improvements and tweaks have been made to the following game modes: Rush, Obliteration, Obliteration Competitive, Capture the Flag and Carrier Assault.

Visual Recoil

Close and medium range optic reticules do not move with the gun any longer, however both bullet spread and bullet drop are still present.

Soldier Movement

Changes have been made to soldier movement so that it closely matches the one in Battlefield 3, but without compromising the visual fidelity. This change also makes it easier to get away from undesirable firefights.

Additionally, we’ve dampened third person hit reactions where the soldier previously moved his head around a lot when getting shot at

HUD Triage

Focusing on clarity, and de-cluttering the HUD/UI to only show what is important – we have added several options and functionality to make your screen much less cluttered (and give you a lot of choice in making it the way you want).

Revive Mechanic Improvements

A special effort went into making revives easier to use, more robust and easier to understand. Additions include a “fully charged” paddle sound, UI indication on revive time and better networked ragdolls.

“Netcode” Improvements

Making ping differences, trade kills and kills behind cover less of an issue by lowering the time allowed to damage on the client side.

Automatic High Frequency Update setting enforced with the intent of release to all platforms, including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Improvements to bullet damage times from client to client, “dusting” and de-syncs.

Vehicle Balance

Identifying and tweaking the top vehicles in need of buffs and nerfs.

Weapon Balance

We’ve focused on maintaining a consistent Time To Kill (how long an average engagement lasts for). With the changes to visual recoil, the third person hit reactions and improved “tickrates” has been sped up somewhat as we still need to balance this with damage and recoil changes.

Suppression systems has also been re-tuned and made clearer.

What’s next?

The next initiative on the CTE will be called the Teamplay Initiative. Here we will focus on improving teamplay and the objective aspects of playing Battlefield. This will include everything from Commander, Squads, Field Upgrades and Game Mode improvements, features and bug fixes.

There may be other changes that are not mentioned such your soldier not being able to carry as many grenades and the resupply time for grenades being lengthened, I think it is around 30 seconds in the CTE at the moment.

The movement speed changes may not be definite as a lot of players on the CTE do not like the change.

Double XP is running this weekend if anyone has anything that they want to unlock.

If anyone has a PC capable of running BF4 and are curious about joining the Elite. Then you can try BF4 free for a week.
Origin has just unveiled that the next title as part of their “Game Time” program is Battlefield 4! Starting today, gamers can download Battlefield 4 for free on PC (until August 14th at 10 AM PT). There’s never been a better time for new recruits to jump in and join us on the Battlefield.

Couldn't play tonight.....too drunk.
Your aim couldn't possibly be any worse than usual.

PSNs down at the moment anyway, some silly little kid wanted to prove what a l33t hax0rz he was and staged a DDOS attack on the servers. Best part is the fucking ninny called in a fake bomb threat on a flight that either the Sony or Playstation president was on, so his ass is gonna get carted of to prison.

EDIT: It was a flight that the president of SOE was on. Seems there's two different parties trying to claim responsibility for the attack.
