In an attempt to resolve the issues a number of Battlefield 3 players are currently facing, DICE will be performing maintenance across all platforms on June 1st from 8 to 9 AM UTC, at which point the multiplayer will be unavailable. That’s 3 to 4 AM EST early morning on the 1st.
Yesterday, DICE addressed the issue of players’ stats and XP earned in-game not being recognized by the Battlelog or end-of-match screen. In a statement to the public, they advised players to avoid using the FAMAS assault rifle, for the time being, as its usage has been linked to the issue of lost stats and XP.
Today, DICE made this announcement via Facebook:
Battlefield 3 multiplayer will be unavailable on all platforms June 1st from 8 to 9 AM UTC for an update that addresses a recent problem that has prevented some players from recognizing experience and rank progressions (tied the use of the FAMAS by any player in a match).
Let’s hope affected players will soon receive their lost stats back and that others will no longer experience the bug.
