So they're 'redesigning' the maps, i.e. completely overhauling the flag placements. OBSOIV!

The whole post is worth a read. Personally I think it's going to be way too late. If they do a Billy Big Bollocks 2.0 re-release with gubbins, whatnots and substantial incentives it could work. It did for FFXIV. I picked a Series X copy up from Tesco for £16 when they were clearing out. It's still in the wrapper, and I've already been bitten by buying Anthem when it was £6 because I thought they'd stick with their "We're fixing it, honest!" thing but I'm a fucking idiot. What can you do?

4 months after release and they're only now getting into rejigging the maps - but are focusing on one specifically. This demonstrates both how broken the game was/is in other areas - prioritising scoreboards over core fundamentals like this - and just how much ground they have to cover.

 

That blog post intimates a Season 1 release for updates to one map. So, that's June. Until then, adjusted capture points is the best we're getting. If there are more than a couple of dev squads left on the game at this point I would be astounded - EA have put it into hibernate and placate mode at this point.

 

Those updates to Kaleidoscope are ridiculous, and the blog post is almost a tacit admission that they got at least one mode completely wrong (possibly the whole game). They're moving two A1/A2 closer together to that they are theoretically easier to defend, but they're also broadly in open countryside so that'll be fun. It looks like it'll still be brilliant for being the defenders and getting massacred by aircraft in the opening salvo too.

 

B1 gets a defender spawn point change which...uh...does something I guess? C1/C2 are just closer together again. It looks like they are trying to create fronts, and to do so are effectively abandoning 50% of the map. Shows just how bad a shape it's in IMHO.

 

If the game isn't formally dead and unsupported by the end of Season 1, I will be absolutely astounded. I get the feeling the only thing stopping them doing that now is the fact they sold 4 battle passes so need to churn out 4 seasons to avoid a class action lawsuit/refunds.

Probably beyond saving I'm afraid. There are 5 times as many people playing V on Steam, not a good sign.

 

I played quite a lot of BF2042, got to level 85 I think but haven' played for a couple of weeks. The lack of content and replayability is my main issues.

Also, not gonna lie, but as much as I like 2042 I feel sick to my stomach whenever the game puts me on the Russian side atm.

 

I'm on hiatus for this reason.

After nearly destroying their flagship shooter with the big ol' flop that was Battlefield 5, EA are hoping to revitalise the fortunes of the series with Battlefield 6.


this worked out well

I still can't believe "Season 1" hasn't started yet :lol:

 

I wasn't bothered so much a while ago but now I am thinking I should get some money back on it - I bought the full fat version.

Well, the new patch is out and it probably makes the game the best it has been...now, make some bloody maps or at least put the BF3 and BFBC2 maps into general rotation.

 

Oh....HDR seems to be switched off on PS5 for some reason and I can't put it back on.
