Battlefield V has double the player-count of Battlefield 2042 on Steam / EA Director of Comms for shooters says expectations are “Brutal”

What in tarnation lol
 
"Trust me the game is fine! It plays great!" says the biased person working on the newly delayed game who also literally needs you to buy their stuff in order for them to make a living who also happens to work for a company who is famous for releasing games that are bug riddled messes at launch.



Seems legit! 🙃
This ain't my first rodeo
 
I recently tried the xbox one version on my series X , I'm shocked people are not talking about the input lag on last gen consoles , it literally takes 1 second to Turn
Absolutely horrible shit

Ahahahahahaha what a fucking take lol

BFV I will give you and BF1 I could understand even if I disagree, but saying BF3 and 4 are trash? That is just objectively false.

Are all trash* for me. BF3 and BF4 I just could not get into with how their controls felt. Whether it was due to them moving to a new engine after Bad Company 2 or simply a concerted design change, I never liked it. When a shooter feels bad to play, that is not good. BF4 was also beyond broken and nearly unplayable for weeks post launch, which is when I tried to play it. It may be Better now, but I am not going to give a game that failed its first impressions so hard a second chance.

BF1, V, and 2042 are objectively all awful games. From level design to core systems. None of them have any redeeming characteristics in my eyes.

Like I said I agree with V and 2042, but I have over 2500 hours between 3, 4, and 1. So I can't agree with that. I will say that 4's gunplay feels a bit numb compared to V and 1, but the game had so many other things going for it that I got over it very quickly.


1 is arguably my favorite battlefield game ever though in terms of how much fun I had with it when it was at its peak.

Looks like it's about number 34 on the top 50 list of most played Xbox games. Right between Smite and Sea of Thieves. I wonder if these figures are from the free to play weekend.

I wish I could say the same, but sadly they just weren‘t for me.

Could also just be my tastes have changed. I much prefer games like UT04 and Quake 3 over CoD or Battlefield.
 
Bro I'm putting together a new resume as a sound designwr to send to Dice.


I have no experience, but that clearly didn't stop whoever made what you linked.
Perhaps the new resume could mention:

TWO-TIME GRAMMY AWARD, ACADEMY AWARD WINNING COMPOSER HILDUR GUDNADOTTIR & TWO-TIME GRAMMY AWARD WINNER SAM SLATER RELEASE SCORE FOR BATTLEFIELD 2042

Seriously! An amateur thinks they can match the complex, woven score of 2042? The themes of loss for your fellow soldier and planet?

....the old BF theme was the best, I still hum it. These two grabbed the bag and ran.

First time I heard the music was on Angry Joe's review video where he comically reacts to a slew of tracks. I couldnt believe it. I was thinking Joe made up the tracks as one of his skits. It makes no sense why a BF game has mashed up music like the audio engineers were on acid. It doesn't resemble music at all.
 
Probably the best message the market can send right now is to go back and play or buy older BF titles. Hopefully EA would understand that the problem isnt the Battlefield franchise...its what they've turned it into with 2042.
 
Have they still not come out and given a roadmap or action plan yet?

Oh they’re going to sort out the scoreboard? Great, what about the shit maps, specialists and general shitty feeling weapons? Forget it guys, this game is done. I honestly can’t see Battlefield having a comeback after this.

Havnt played battlefield 2042 since the beta (without the glitches the game feels nothing like battlefield) but played battlefield 5 first time yesterday, can see why the game got alot of hate a mean its kinda battlefieldy with the classes and such but man the game is so linear, it actually feels like there star wars battlefront games with a battlefield skin, just uninstalled it and gunna give bf one ago but keep going back to, feels like the last proper good game imo

I am terrified of Microsoft and am always concerned about them.
I tried to play this game recently on my PS5 but It doesn't even start and kicks me out of the game and closes the app.
Fuck this piece of shit game.

Seems the PS5 is doing you a favor.
There are so many better games to play.
I know I have Horizon and KOF here. I Just wanted to see what kind of progress they made.

Well I don't give a shit anymore. Gonne sell this turd on eBay.
