Why Has It Taken Dice So Long To Reintroduce Squad Join

Earlier today Xbox Players published the details of Battlefield 4 Squad Join, but here we ask a simple question Why Do This 6 months after launch?

Dice and EA have finally added a simple but very effective tool to Battlefield 4, and one that worked already in Battlefield 3.

So has anyone asked why it was dropped from Battlefield 4 in the first place?

We cannot understand why this would have been the case unless it had major implications on the running of the game, but what hasn’t.

Squad Join Beta will only be available in the Battlefield 4 base game maps in the Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Rush, and Domination game modes. Others will be added later if the feedback from the fans points to this working properly.

It does smack of indifference and to be perfectly honest all a little  too late for some fans on Battlelog:

 When you can use this feature with the server browser, instead of quick match, then i will be happy.

 Squad joining! Finally! But what about if there’s more than 5 of us (i.e. a clan). Keeping clans together and preventing rebalancing from splitting clans up in between matches needs to be next.

 DICE released BF4 and at every junction they said they were NOT going to add pre-game squads, the only reason you have done this was because DICE finally caved to the pressure and likely this may be a means to try to get older players to come back since the game is running better.

I appreciate the feature, just be honest about why we getting it, we the audience are not stupid.

Battlefield 4 Squad Join BetaFans are still annoyed that this game still has so many issues but Dice look to be in it for the long haul. The Battlefield series is not a yearly occurrence and will see 2 full years in its lifetime.

The EA Help page on Battlefield 4 has a whole step by step guide, so we know EA and Dice are aware of these ongoing problems, but if you consider how many issues they have had since launch, are we finally starting to see the game that was intended to be released on day one?

Below we have detailed what issues are currently known on Xbox on the help page or click here to see the full page
