Server Update R8 for Battlefield 4 on PC for November 12, 2013

- Fixed a number of dog tags that were showing up as blank in-game.
- Lowered the damage caused by Mobile AA Active Radar missiles to aircraft. The previous damage was incorrectly set too high.
- Improved server crash reporting and performance tracking on all platforms. This should further help us identify and fix server crashes going forward.
