The biggest problem with this game I have right now are the following:

1) (Biggest) You cannot progress towards unlocks in Portal. This needs to change. I like hardcore maps but if I cant progress my character, theres no point in me playing this.
2) I join a server, it kicks me back to the portal main screen.
3) It's hard to tell who is who since everyone is basically the same character. Theres no individuality between teams.
4) Navigating different screens is a pain in the ass.
5) There are a LOT of XP farms in Portal. It's overwhelming.

Iirc Portal default matchmaking or sth (heard 2nd-hand so don't quote me) has progression and xp earning. Only custom "experience" is closed for now because xp farm scenarios people made.

That's good to know but still doesnt help me since i like playing hardcore servers so I need to use the server list.

I'm enjoying this so far. I bought it to play with my old squad. Funny thing is that my friend installed it on a HDD and didn't realize it until last Friday. So, he uninstalls it and then goes to reinstall it and didn't realize he installed it the first time on his VPN.. Origin wouldn't let him install it again. He contacts EA they tell him there is a 24hr cool down that after 24hrs he can reinstall it using his regular IP.. lol I have never had this issue with Steam and the main reason I bought mine on Steam as well. Has anyone else ran into this issue? It's crazy to think that Origins can't confirm it's the same hardware... lol

I don't know why everyone is complaining about the graphics. I think they look great or at least the foliage. The buildings don't look as good, but all in all it's not as bad. I do like the weather effects. I'd love to play this in VR. but even with that said I probably should have waited 3 months and bought this for 29.99. lol

That's the first time I hear BF game is purchasable on Steam. I bet it requires Origin to be running in the background though.

I think the game looks ok I'm just disappointed that they didn't push the tech further like they've done in previous Battlefields.. I've only played the beta map but it was pretty forgettable. I really wish they had focused on maximizing lighting, texture resolution, LODs over pushing the player counts to 128. I guess this is technically just a crossgen game so maybe I'm expecting too much.

Yeah I agree, but 128 players in BF is much needed. It's easy to get to the fight. I mean I never turn the graphics all the way up anyway. I want the most fps over looks, but that's just me I guess.

I was hitting the cpu limit which seems to be around 140fps at 1440p even with ultra settings.... I only got the standard edition so I will give the retail release a try this weekend. I switched back to 4k since the beta so we will see how it goes lol.

Grabbed this and it's... ok..

Pro's
- Big maps
- Solid graphics
- I have no performance issues on my hardware
- The change attachments on the fly thing is kind of nice
- Infantry weapons seem fairly well balanced (although it's hard to tell in a chaotic battlefield game)

Con's
- Big maps (breakthrough is fun, conquest is a running sim)
- Lack of maps
- Lots of "dead space" on maps that are completely insignificant and only really serve as a way to keep vehicles from covering the entire map in a few seconds.
-- Has the effect of killing infantry combat on conquest. Once you clear a point you're spending a few minutes running and hoping not to get strafed by OP helos.
- Lack of game modes
- The servers are awful. EA could have farmed out the server infrastructure with a real server browser and self hosted servers, instead we get laggy EA servers.
- SBMM is rumored to be coming, hoping not as I don't see it working at all in a 128 player server.
- The menus are awful
- Operators feel unnecessary outside of selling skins
-- I still believe the grappling hook has 0 business being in a battlefield game
- Pitifully small number of weapons on release
-- Customizing loadouts is finicky (see menus are awful)
- No all chat
- No real scoreboard
- No VOIP
- Vehicles seem unbalanced right now
-- The hovercraft is almost indestructible and incredibly maneuverable.. it's the meme mobile right now
-- Helos need to have their flares nerfed, I swear they regen faster than you can fire a second AA missile
-- Vehicles as a whole seem to be able to take a few too many hits but it's hard to tell...
--- Why did they remove damage info when hitting vehicles???

I'm playing using the $20 EA pass.. And for $20 it's worth it... for $100 it's not even close (yet)

Kinda hard to make up your mind with all the sugarcoated PR of these EA sponsored "influencers". :sleep:

but if you dig you still can find some independent reviewers out there who call it:



If I did preorder, I would immediatly refund it & wait how much EA is able/willing to change the game.
Best would be to wait it out with BF4 or something else & get the "Premium Edition" (incl. all DLC) of 2042 when it's on sale.
Better for your nerves & your wallet. :)

The best thing DICE did in the last few years is ceasing selling DLC maps and weapons. It fucking breaks the playerbase. IIRC it's battlepass and skins.

The worse thing DICE did was ceasing selling DLC maps and guns. Now skins break the game's overall immersion and the quality of DLC maps went down the drain.

Nice! I still need to fine tune mine. I haven't had time to play.

Im honestly having fun with the game. I would be having a lot more fun if I could actually progress my character and weapons in portal mode which you cant do because dbags ruined portal mode by making xp farm servers.

I have to say I'm impressed with this game. Everyone that says the graphics are not good I have to disagree. I think most are looking at issues where textures are not loading. I have had that issue on the first day but playing 4 rounds just now I didn't see it at all other than a few textures took a few seconds to load, but it happened before the games started. I really like the weather effects, lighting at night, and the foliage is amazing. It was crazy at one point looking at the foliage it gave me a Crysis vibe.

Here is a few screen shots on auto Medium and I was at a constant 60fps on 2560x1440.

When it's configurable, yeah. Some devs love to push it for the cinematic feel and lock it away.
Dice lets you turn it off.

I cancelled my EA pass membership that I grabbed for this... if they patch it enough between now and next month maybe I'll grab the game proper

The more I play, the more it becomes obvious that 128 players is a mistake (along with the bloom, broken vehicles, lack of weapons, etc..)

Soo, the Steam Reviews are up, has to be the worst AAA game that hit the shelf, ever. :shadedshu: Hope EA stockholders add some pressure.

AngryJoe's review is also out. Man, he's really angry, lol. (WARNING for the softies: massive swearing!)

I think im the odd one out where I dont experience crashes like they do. Sometimes when I try to join a server it will send me back to the selection screen but thats about it in terms of "crashing". Now the issue with landing hit markers/kills, I experience that a lot. There are plenty of times im firing my sniper and i am just not connecting with a hit marker and it baffles me.

Hovercrafts should not be able to scale buildings. You should not be able to call in drops for vehicles on tops of buildings. That is just game breaking imo.

Nah man, thats just a game mechanic that's paying homage to the attack boats in BF4 that USED TO SPAWN MILES IN LAND FAR AWAY FROM ANY WATER SOURCE

They spawned on top of buildings, on the roads, Even in the water but of course you would expect that as its a boat.


My memory fails me but i not sure if that boat bug was there from BF4s initial release or if it came with the China Rising DLC. All i know is i got wrecked by attack boats randomly spawning inland on Shanghai map a lot.
