After BF2042 beta I installed BF1 again on my console and I'm having a blast. I don't like this Fortnite-esque style of new operators, the map surprisingly also felt barren.

I would had played BF1 a lot more as I like WWII. When it worked, the core game was solid even though I know its a pisser to play BF games due to tons of snipers.

I don't know if they improved it vs. launch but my buddies and I bailed fast as we kept getting game crashes and kept getting issues partying up. It would take some us rebooting and sending party invites over and over again until it worked. The UI was terrible too.

The game is solid on PS5, I think I hadn't been getting too many crashes even before BF5 came out. There are still active servers, and I consider Operations in BF1 the best game mode I played in a BF game - destroys BF5, and I don't know if I want to try BF2042.

Not for the new consoles if you shut off cross play you only play with that console.
In other words there's no option for cross play with input based matchmaking is there? Either we play against PC's m+k or we don't get crossplay at all. Doesn't anyone see the bs here? We either get wrecked by m+k or have to deal with longer matchmaking and less lobbies.

They are catering to PC with the notion that console players won't notice or care. The correct way to do cross play would, when you log in you are presented with the option of who you want to play with. Select either: 1. Full cross play where everyones together no matter if it's controller or m+k. OR. 2. Input based crossplay.

It should be so simple. The problem is when you start up bf 2042 you are already in the default choice number one- full crossplay. PC/console/mouse and keyboard/controller together.

They have to know that by having that as the default they are favoring that cross play set up for the majority of players. It's like starting a soccer game with one team up 2-0. People who just want the fairest input based matches are at a disadvantage in terms of having less people to play with.

Halo Infinite doing the same thing. I guess greater population = better retention and more microtransactions sold. Problem is now you've put controller users at a disadvantage. Especially in a game like BF where m+k is vastly superior to controller.

This is to me as bad as the Star Wars:Battlefront 2 pay to win situation.

Just look at these prices:


For a game in the state 2042 is in and EA expect people to pay these prices.......................

Its a complete joke, how can anyone defend the purchase of this game given the issues.

How far away were you from each other?

When DF did a test showing bad/zero hits registering it seemed it trended more to A) a ton of players grouped together and B) an enemy was far away.

On some site (I forget which), someone theorized it was shitty game code purposely coded that way, in which someone gaming in real life among big mobs of people would naturally shoot close by enemies so the game code prioritizes hits registering there. A gamer wouldnt naturally prefer shooting at someone in the distance if there's enemies 10 or 20 ft away. And since the game cant keep up with both, they gimped hitting far away enemies.

You never know. Maybe theres some truth to that.
We were 30 meters apart I guess. No one else in our lines of sight. But plenty of people outside and beneath us.
 
There is definitely something wrong with gunplay. Why can I hit a guy with 3 bursts and he turns and I feel 2 hits max and I'm dead .
No indication that its a headshot either .

Not once did I fully defend this game. I have stated my experience with the game and called out several bullshit arguments that users probably copied from reading reddit. I've clearly stated multiple times there are issues with it, and that PS5 version plays great performance wise.

Maybe get back to me once you learn how to read and get just a little bit of reading comprehension.

I'm liking the game so far, I mean is not perfect, but I love the massive all out war feel, when you are attacking objectives with your team blowing stuff up it feels epic, if you are a fan of BF4 this is definitely a must play, the weather effects plus all the stuff happening around feels great, it can be a little chaotic at times but fun!

And usually when they start releasing updates and expansions they make it a lot better, also I think people are winning too much and review bombing it, just because you don't like some things about it doesn't mean is a bad game...just like it happened with the LOUS2....I think people should start enjoying more and complaining less about gaming in general

There are a lot of miserable people who literally come to this site, and the internet in general, to just find new things to complain and bitch about.

I agree with you though, under all the issues there's a great game here. Its definitely feels more in line with BF4, than BF1 and BFV.

Dude...

It's okay if you're enjoying the game. No one is taking that away from you (or at least I'm not) but stop pretending that people can't be critical of a product they purchased for $60 or more. There's a whole host of issues with BF2042 and it's not just bugs or "some things that I don't like". Basic mechanics that are to be expected in a shooter released in 2021 are just completley absent. Let alone all the features that are now missing which have been present in previous Battlefield titles. It's fine if you want to overlook those (or if you didn't even notice) but people aren't "review bombing" the game because they have some secret vendetta against DICE/EA. If anything people desperately wanted BF to succeed as we've all grown tired from the competition that's getting a bit complacent to say the least...

Well how many people here brought up the new 'unable to load persistence data' issue here? This issue literally prevents you from playing the game.

It's obvious most people are really just looking to dog pile on the game or fight with each other, and not actually provide real criticism or real discussion. That's why it's easy to see that this game is clearly being review bombed. That doesn't mean the game isn't broken, cause it clearly needs work. It's just that people these days need to be told how to think and feel towards things, and that's exactly what's going on.

Whats bad is they knew this was coming they just forced it out the door as is

They didn't listen to any of the feedback from beta so many people told them this wasn't ready
You could see the game was in trouble as they delayed it once already, even forcing themselves to release after COD which is a no-no for EA. BF games always release first to get the shooter crowd. And no way they'd delay again and miss Xmas sales.

Just imagine how much worse it'd be if they released it as per original release date.

So much for the beta. Another game releasing "a beta", when it's really a demo of the final game.

They should have released this as a longer beta for christmas. And final release for start of next year. You dont get to release an unfinished product and then say its review bombed when its not actually working and is missing actual features. This isnt a DayZ or same alpha game.

Absolutely. The game needed at least 6 more months in the oven.

But my concern here is, this guy can't even keep the Apex Legends community happy, so how is he really going to help the BF franchise?

I feel like there's a lot of good will attached to his name due to Respawn's success, and this is just a cheap way by EA to signal to the masses that positive changes are coming to BF2042. They're just trying to shift the narrative from BF2042 being this huge disaster, to a potential Cinderalla story in the workings. And if we're being honest, the narrative matters more to people than the actual game itself. Most people love Respawn, but don't know the reality of how they treat their live service games.

No it's not my first lol.
I know it happens and has done forever, but not to this extent and my friends are saying the same . There are just too many instances when we should have won a gunfight easily and don't for it to be purely down to lag compo.
Hopefully it gets addressed, we will see .

multiple things can be true at once. you can release an unfinished / broken game and it receives a completely justified backlash from buyers, and it can also be review bombed by people who haven't played the game but are just looking to hop on the bandwagon.

like someone else pointed out here, they're moaning and groaning over the Santa skin being paid DLC in the other BF thread. If you actually own the game, then you would know this is a free challenge-based unlock. still a stupid skin though.

I agree though and think the game should've came out next holiday season, but we would've still had the lack of content issue, regardless of when the game dropped, due to the live service nature of the game.

I guess I just imagined your endless shilling in the review thread.

Oh wait.

So there's a chance Santa Boris might be only for use in Portal like a "Kill Santa" Game?
That's the impression I'm getting. Once again DICE clearly fucked up from the start but also I can't imagine having to spend time trying to put out the flames from all these raging nerds online before they have all the facts, people react before they even process information anymore or wait for it to be confirmed in any way.

People are actually delusional enough to think that this is not a backtrack after 'sense of pride and accomplishment' levels of backlash??



It was 100% intended as a standard unlockable skin.

After BF2042 beta I installed BF1 again on my console and I'm having a blast. I don't like this Fortnite-esque style of new operators, the map surprisingly also felt barren.

ok, but didn't BF1 also have a bunch of skins and shit?

StreetsofBeige StreetsofBeige yea BF1 isn't a bad title, I simply didn't care for the weird TTK that felt very bullet spongey

Buhaj47 Buhaj47 lolz, no it doesn't man lol They are both great games btw, simply relax on the whole hot take hyperbole thing.

JoeBudden JoeBudden Agreed. This very much seems like a sequel to BF4 in many, many ways.

The gadgets, the semi future, even the whole 2042 as in 4-2 seems like its suppose to be a BF4-2 type thing which makes sense with how a lot of the flow is in the game conceptually.

This was really bad at BF1's launch. I ended up resorting to immediately checking the scoreboard, and if too many players on the opposing team had high latency I just dipped. Improved the experience immeasurably.


Remember, even in the midst of utter failure executives always believe they're right. So, they are probably saying to themselves "Our vision works, players love it! We just didn't quite get it right. So let's double down on it with some fresh leadership...". Which means they're going to go all in with the specialists, and the tone is about to get even cringier. That's my guess anyways.

Well we don't really know that, I'd argue in the past EA has listened to lots of feedback.

BF4 rushed to launch with new systems and had server issues,

BF hardline delayed

BF 2042 skipped new systems.

Battlefront 1 had tons of DLC, Battlefront 2 had free DLC, same with Titanfall 2

So they have a history of listening to that feed back and some other title adjusting to something that was done prior, which is why after BF4, we never really had that same type of server issue where you couldn't get into a game, we had issues, but nothing like BF4 though, regardless..I believe they will simply make Specialist optional and simply add on the class stuff like you see in BFV as that actually already exist in 2042 in Portal, it would simply be a update to make that the default in the whole game. Locking abilities to them would be a breeze tbh

I also believe you'll see them make the 75 weapons all available in 2042's base modes.

Fix for those with mouse issues on PC, doing it this way won't reset your settings:

done this, now my heli wont YAW on the mouse, just like the beta

so its either not be able to look left/right as a soldier, or not be able to YAW left in the chopper.........

brilliant

Any PS4/Xbox One players willing to let me tag along Hazard Zone? I simply can't find a single match here in Brazil. The mode is basically dead.

The cheque cleared basically but even though they only played a limited amount how the fuck did u not notice how useless the specialists are and how bad they fucked up the ui and how bad the maps are….let alone the other bugs they must of had

"boo hoo woe is me" -the article.

People were climbing walls with hovercraft during those preview events but they weren't allowed to talk about it.

They clearly knew the state of the game but decided to give it 5/5 anyway.
