    Just wanna chime in and let everyone know "Frontline" mode is hands down the BEST online FPS mode I have ever played. When the game is evenly matched its a complete knock down drag out fight! LOVE IT! Me and the NUTS fought the other day for over an hour in ONE MATCH! EPIC.

    I agree it's pretty great, but they do need some way to break stalemates. It sucks when your team only loses because people start quiting because its taking so long.

    Its about persistence. Something to brake the "stalemate" IMO would be kinda lame. You win or don't. Its all teamwork. No magic murder train to break the lines. Just a sack of nuts and some luck.

    I thought like you to begin with but, after a few matches I think DICE has the right idea. You gotta work for that win.

    I was thinking something more subtle, like an elite spawning at a contested flag if it isn't capped by one team or another for a few minutes. Or better, the more times a flag has been taken the faster it caps. Your right that it wpuld be very hard to do without breaking the tug of war feel.

    I still have to play the SP, I think it's at least a nice tech and graphical demonstration if nothing else. ;)

    In my experience, evenly matched is that neither team knows how to actually push and sit back and watch. So there's a constant back and forth hence the long games.

    Nice but short...could've been better. You have 6 campaign parts with different characters, each part contains 3 missions if I'm not mistaking

    DICE just introduced "premium friends"
    Basically, as long as at least 1 person in a party has the premium pass all party members will have access to premium maps.

    Restrictions :
    You have to own premium to get dlc unlocks
    You will not recieve XP unless you either have premium or own the expansion. If ypu buy it at a later date you will recieve those points retroactively.

    Just got BF1 for $32 downloading now. My friend just got it on PS4 and it was a blast.
    I had fun as a medic.

    Narthes is my EA name.

    Hey guys my DL is done, but can't load any matches. Just stuck on the loading game screen to join a round.
    Any idea?

    EDIT: waited over 20min. nothing loaded. further testing and anything that requires a loading screen does not load. Even the Loading Customize screen. I checked and no activity on my SSD.

    Could it because my origin and games are installed on another SSD?

    I had this problem when I installed on a new ssd, running a game repair fixed it for me.

    Battlefield 4 invests its storytelling energy in its characters. Unfortunately, they all-too-often act as soldiers who have character, rather than characters who are soldiers. Well, its Expansive and exciting as well. I also like Battlefield 3 though many were not really satisfied with the course of the game but its fun though. Now, I'm excited with BF5.

    I recently unlocked the semi auto shotgun with the extended magazine. Finding it to be fairly deadly. The standard one was utter garbage, amazing how just two extra shots make such a big difference.

    Strong disagreement. The auto 5 can't kill in 1 hit, even point blank. That means that even with 3 extra rounds you actually only have 4 kills per magazine. The dlc semiouto is a monster, so is tge a10 and the m97. I enjoyed the auto5 a lot but it is definitely weak.

    I don't have the DLC so can't comment on those weapons.
