Indeed, that's what I hear, but I haven't yet seen a case with my own eyes where the stock clean reinstall fails but DDU succeeds.
Anyway, thanks again for all the information provided.
Haha if only
If you have BF4 but not all the DLC, keep an eye on the Road to BF1 page. I don't have release times or anything, but I don't think this promotion is done yet.
it was worth a try
But alas i have premium for bf4 so i guess i must just either wait or invent a time machine...maybe this is a project EA would like to help with.
