Latest Battlefield 4 Premium-Only Double XP Event Postponed

Those who shelled out the extra cash to pick up the Premium membership for Battlefield 4 are in for a bit of a bad news.

The Premium Double XP event that was initially set to go live on December 29 has apparently been postponed until a later date, according to a message that appears on the Battlelog. It reads the following:

“THE END OF DECEMBER 2XP EVENT FOR PREMIUM MEMBERS HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE RUN AT A LATER DATE. STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.”

This, of course, shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as Battlefield 4 players across all platforms have been experiencing issues with the servers during the past weekend. Players have reported not being able to join games or their stats being incorrectly wiped.

At the moment DICE hasn’t made an official announcement as to when we can expect the Premium-exclusive event to be rescheduled, but we hope it’s soon.

Currently, for those who aren’t happy with their Battlefield Premium subscription on the Xbox 360 or Xbox One platforms¬†can ask Microsoft for a refund.

    @the moment, its impossible for me, to download “Premium” from PS-Store…..Error: C-8000113(or something like this…)

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    ^^maybe, that’s one of the reason, why they “rescheduled” double-XP-weekend…..

      Am I the only one with this “Error: C-8000113″? Really? I have seen this errorcode on many BF-sites….does someone have a solution? Please help….thx

    Can someone please tell me why they attached a infantry gadgets access to a shit game mode like Air Sup. I mean this mode is absolutely terrible.

    • DerpSlayer

      Waving overpowered infantry toys in front of CoD monkeys are the only way to get them to expand their horizons and try something new. It is a vehicle game after all. There’s more to it than just hide & seek fun on the ground.

      • My_Name_Here

        At least CoD monkeys can play their game without crashes/freezes/server errors. If Dice was attempting to steal players away from CoD they failed horribly with this pile of garbage they rushed out of the door.

        • DerpSlayer

          I haven’t had a BF4 crash in weeks. Ghosts by contrast is absolutely disgraceful on the PC.

    • NinoBr0wn

      What do you mean?

  • Kyle Jackson

    I’ve even had problems connecting onto BF3 for the past few days.

    Well, everyone significant at DICE is on holiday till february, so I don’t expect anything to happen until they return.

    • DerpSlayer

      Source?

        Two days to wedding. If you've been tweeting me, I haven't read my @Demize99 in a month and won't for another. I'm at home, until the beach.— Alan Kertz (@Demize99) December 3, 2013

          LOL that was a funny response.

  • Timothy David Medric

    So I paid money for something that doesn’t work properly?

    • John Singleton

      Apparently. Unless you used the barter system to obtain your copy.

    • MeisseN

      Yeah and this month’s Premium Dog Tags + Knife still haven’t been given to me yet… dayum, man, it’s 2014 now.

    It’s unfortunate that these stability/performance issues post-release are taking precedent over the blaring flaws in terms of their design choices in BF4. I’d much rather be having a conversation about that, than having them focus on bugfixing and making the game playable post-release.

  • Paul Thomas

    Very slowly EA is getting into deeper and deeper waters.

    • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

      Very fast i would say

    • Jamie McDonald

      They had a golden chance to really show their strength with this release! Shame really!

  • Tank Buster

    double xp is ghey anyways

    • NinoBr0wn

      How profound.

  • Peter

    this is really unfortunate. I’m not very pleased with BF4 so far!

    It is such a shame it came to this. Another huge mistake was not using Microsoft’s servers! They dont even have enough hardcore servers for Xbox One, the queue waiting can go upwards to 50 people at peak times in my region, and there are queues for completely empty servers! Why? Bc there are no freakin’ servers! Thank goodness for Snap function. I usually watch shows until time is up

    As far as Double XP, So what? Speaking for myself, I have a ton of XP boosts I have saved up, 2 of them being 200%(which I think is double) Does anyone know if the Slim Jim promotion is over? I have a bunch of codes I want to enter for my double XP and Battlepacks

    • NinoBr0wn

      Has nothing to do with Microsoft servers, and it is unlikely and inefficient if they were to go that way for one version of the game. Also, Battlepack boosts stack with double XP, so you’re not getting the same amount you would otherwise.

  • thatoneguy

    Might have something to do with that DerpTrolling group. They shut down a lot of EA servers last night, as well as BF4 servers. Also shut down, LOL, EVE, Oceania, Battle.net, Runescape, a North Korean News agency resulting in all of North Korean internet to be shut off, World of Tanks, the Westboro Baptist Church site, and they just crashed something else but won’t tell what it is.

  • Kidanny Mendez

    Damn, the premium buyers are getting screwed over.

    • John Kimble

      They should have known better. I did and I bought Premium for BF3 without hesitation.

      • NinoBr0wn

        Should have known better how, exactly? How could anyone have possibly known this would happen?

  • John Kimble

    Paid for premium for BF3 and I will not be doing the same for BF4.
