This is on sale on Xbox. 53 quid for the cross gen version. Buying shit day 1 is a fucking mugs game :seanr:


This was the only game I did it with this year. My buying has dropped off a cliff since game pass. I had stopped preordering years ago. I think day one buys are done for me now.

Maybe you'll feel different when the Battlefield Gameatic Universe starts and you get to spend more time with all those beloved Battlefield characters like [FILE MISSING]!

 

Yeah. I'm excited about the possibility of a Battlefield MMORPG, a cutesie platformer in which each of our heroic specialists must use their skills to traverse each zone, and a military themed kart racer.

It's kind of depressing that Michael K. Williams last role was this game.

Had a game of 128 player Conquest and I must say that if nothing else the latest patch made the LMG actually usable.

 

Hit detection also felt quite a lot better!

I had no issue with it before (second one) but, yip, feels a bit too good now...a week mibee then they will turn it back to dog plops.

Definitely getting rolled over in straight firefights with my SMG Vs. an LMG. Which is, to be fair, exactly how it should be.

Turning off cross play was a good thing. Much more even playing field.

 

Unlocking the AC42 was even better, I see why so many use it. But I still can't figure out the attachments, what they say and what the stats say doesn't seem to correspond. Long barrel for the AC42 is supposed to increase range but lower the rate of fire. Rate of fire is still 1200 but the handling goes down. Shouldn't handling improve with a lower rate of fire?

Ditto. I'm so glad they've finally fixed that option. No idea why they went with the stupid first setup on Xbox.

Oh that's interesting. So does this mean the system level cross play is different to one put in the options because people said with the system level one they got practically all bots/no matches?

 

Might be so even if it doesn't really make sense. I had no problem finding 128 player conquest servers.

 

But I think that Portal servers might be another story, there were no European TDM servers for only Xbox yesterday. But as I never play Portal that is not much of an issue for me. 🙂

No it’s just been updated last week to allow you to turn off cross play in game instead of having to dig through stacks of settings Menus in the dash.

This is what I mean, is it the same system level function or is it something else? Or could it have been busted to shit before* and now they fixed it AND put the option at menu level.




* most likely.

I think it’s just so much easier to find and turn on now you’ve actually got people using it.

Still no idea why they do "limited time" shit - the menu screens not big enough?

 

Reminds me of the COD Cold War Rambo Gun Game from earlier this year, they developed it - was quite good fun - removed after about 3 weeks, never to be seen again. :wacko:

Cannibalising their player base I guess. Drives up interest and player engagement. Also it would mean they were wrong to put 128 player maps in.

 

Yep. Creates a bit of that whole FOMO thing. Causes people to run to the new event and then possibly buy some of the "limited edition" cosmetics associated with them.

I'm enjoying this so far, lots wrong with it but hopefully these things will be resolved in time. 

 

Spent the last few weeks playing the PS4 version (on a PS5) as the lads I play with don't have PS5s. I gave the PS5 version a go today and it's lots better than the lat gen version. The sound works, hit markers are more consistent and the larger number of objectives means there is less running around in empty space.

On the objectives thing I was thinking yesterday that maybe they should add in many more points to capture on the maps. this would spread people out a bit more and give a chance to have some decent smaller scale battle. you would still have the really important capture points where large numbers of people would be.

Just a thought, might help getting shot in the back so much.

  • 2 weeks later...

So have everyone moved to other games?

I must confess that I quite enjoy this now, eventhough it is rage inducing sometimes.

 

After watching Stodehh use the AC42 as a DMR that is now my go to loadout. With a 2,5-3X scope and almost zero recoil, you drop snipers before they knew what hit them. 👍

 

As they also added TDM it is now a bit easier to get a good amount of kills in a short time to unlock attachments.
