    There are pages on the wiki relating to stuff other than shooting stuff and the people/vehicles that do it. Many of these topics used to be lumped under a "Concepts" category that was ill-defined and thus became bloated in some areas, and isolated in other areas.

    I am taking some time to better organize what now falls under the general heading of Gameplay:

    Anything that distinctly separates the Battlefield series from other franchises (e.g. Frostbite, Levolution), or is otherwise important enough to be given its own out-of-game menu (e.g. Customization, Awards) or service (Battlelog, Battlefield Premium).
    Rules that affect how in-game characters and objects behave.
    Systems by which a player may interact with the gameworld t…

    I was one of the few 32-bit holdouts until I saw that the BF4 beta required 64-bit. Fortunately, Newegg was able to help me get my system up to spec within a day of beta.

    Some particulars about my existing setup:

    • I learned long ago to keep separate partitions for system and user profiles. This has spared me some grief when reinstalling OS on other computers.
    • I use an SSD with junctioning for game files, specifically Battlefield. This drastically cut my load times compared to platter HDDs; I could finally join matches during the pre-round, instead of after all flags and vehicles were taken.
      • My SSD is too small for full system, and I've had one of these completely fail, taking everything with it. (Fortunately I had backups set up on that system…
