No Battlelog in Battlefield 1

So the creator of the popular Battlelog addon does not think that we will see a revamped version of Battlelog when Battlefield 1 launches later this year.

Here is what he says.

I, as the creator of Better Battlelog, have much contact with the code of battlelog. I have no access behind the scenes but i can analyse what i see.
And what i see makes me sad.
The fact’s that i compare with previous game launches in battlelog.

  1. Everytime a new game comes out, many of things change in Battlelog before anyone else can see it. I saw that with every release of a game, it started all more than a half year before the release of the game.
    Now it doesn’t happen anything interesting. No preparation for a new game and other stuff. Nothing that takes me to the point “Oh, a new game could come”.
    I carefully analysed the code and the changes in the last few months, nothing.
    Remember: I leaked the BF Hardline release first :slight_smile:

  2. Not just one official word for battlelog. For the last games, they where very proud for the battlelog system and they announced it everywhere they could. Now we only hear silence.

  3. They officially confirmed a server-browser, again with no word for battlelog.

  4. Just shooting in the dark: What i see from code changes, they maybe move the existing battlelog to in-game and screw the Web based battlelog - The technology behind the battlelog led me to this assumption. But here i am do just loud thinkin.

5. The official BF1 chat forum is NOT in battlelog. It always was in battlelog for the last games. Now it just links to an external site when you go to the battlelog forums.

Update 2:

  1. Many people contacted me during the reddit discussion session. Some of them have more in-depth information. Different people that don’t know each other say the same thing (all private messaged me): EA plan to totally kill web based battlelog. Can’t name sources here but i trust (some) of that people.

With all that said, i am pretty sure that BF1 will not have any WEB based battlelog. But i am also sure that they add an adequate alternative, which only can be completely in-game.
Update: Why i am sure? They already have a “battlelog light” in-game and the problem always was that web-based battlelog is, mostly, PC only.

, i hope so, for the live of BBLog.

The FAQ of the reddit community

  1. What if they learned and do not the same mistakes again and leak out stuff into public code?
    A: I really hope so. When i am wrong it will be a good day for me and BBLog. The past tell us another story.


I’m pretty sure there won’t be a battlelog as we know it. The fact that there’s a whole new forum for battlefield 1 is a clear sign on the wall.

I’m betting on an in game battlelog with a companion app. And there will most likely be a web based version as well, but not for starting the game, selecting servers, etc. as its used for PC on BF4. It will be more about tracking progress and configuring your character.

It’s not really guessing since the battlefront forum and battlefield 1 forum are basically identical apart from styling. Also battlefront already has a web based ‘battlelog’ with a companion app, which doesn’t support starting the game etc. So chances are (like 99%) that they’ll do the same thing for battlefield 1.

What do you mean by a companion app? Like something on your phone?

Like the App from Starwars Battlefront.

Huh? What app? I dont remeber anything like that in Battlefront

Check it out in the App Store

Wow! things you learn. I had no idea that existed

Theres a Battlelog app too…I wonder how will it be…

So far what I’ve seen from the menus there’s a lot of similarities with Battlefront. There’s no point in making something completely new, so my guess that it will be similar to the battlefront companion app.

yeah - why reinvent the wheel
