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.

This is true. I just played some of the initial parts of BF4 a few days ago. I was on a speedboat and I was supposed to dock on a carrier, but it disappeared. The only thing there was a bunch of doors floating above the water where the carrier was supposed to be. So, it's still buggy too, years later.

I enjoy the game. Too many people complain about change. Some of it is warranted, others arent. But when you cant shoot someone 2 feet in front of you, there is a problem. Id prefer specialists but at the same time, I like being a sniper that doesnt have to be in a ghillie suit and can have an ammo box.

No specialist classs system, i had no idea. Not sure why they swapped things around here... the previous class system was "on point" for me. Oh well, we'll have to adapt.

As for everyone getting the chance to pick up a rocket launcher/anti-air missile... BLOODY GOOD JOB!!! Never did like those expert air attackers. Imagine planning a perfect run for miles with super-caution and stealth movement and then only to be picked off by a high flying gunner or bomber....Nah, i'm a ground trooper for life. Gonne carry the anti-air shooter like my life depends on it :p

As for the rest of the vid.... give it time, with time they/we always adapt. It's gonna be a BLAST! (as always)

The issue is (ignoring the specialist/class/etc.. changes) we have SO MANY MISSING FEATURES!! Past battlefield games laid a great framework and it's like they accidentally deleted it all and started over. (Also a ton of issues stem from them forcing 128 players... and trying to make it work)

The game on steam currently has 25,000+ reviews with 75%+ of them being negative.

Metacritic has the user score at 2.3/10 and the critic score at 73/100

I'm hopeful they can patch this up... but the game should never have been released in this state and people need to talk with their wallets and refund to prove the point that it's unacceptable to launch a game like this.

The only good thing about this game being so bad, is it convinced me to reinstall bf4 and it's the most fun I've had with a shooter in years

Imagine how happy the community would be if EA just reworked the MP side of things with BF1942 and re-activated the servers again.

BF1942 is one of the best and most fun aspects about portal.

I gave in and bought it. Started playing last night. Played a couple matches and there is a big learning curve. I will give it some time though to see if I like it. I haven't really played BF since BF 4.

Guys aren't we all being a little too critical about the launch? Im not bothered with the pre-launch but 19th Nov for me is the actual launch and I suspect a whole bunch of bugs or what not.

TBH, i saw similar criticism flying about during the previous BF launches and all major concerns were ironed out eventually. So what gives?

They can patch bugs, but they most likely can/will not change the flaws in map design, the specialists nonsense or the "Fortnite'ish" direction. ;)

Map design: the maps where designed for 128 players, removing 64 players for better performance requires to also rework the map size. Not gonna happen, at least not for current maps & maps from "Season 1" (since they are most likely already done). Maybe for later maps. I also don't see them adding more cover (river beds, more buildings or even noob tubed smoke nades like in BC2).

Specialists nonsense: there is already a store page in the game where you most likely can purchase outfits. They wont cut out an core element to milk the sheep.

"Fortnite'ish" direction: see above points. It's an adult rated game, yet the moronic design language of the characters (would prefer the funny design of BC2), the tacky voice acting (prefer the "Motherf..." language of BF3) & the obvious Fortnite and Warzone copy pasta (map size & wingsuit = Fortnite hang glider) speaks otherwise. So does the (misleading) Battlefield 2042 Commercial.

And the cherry on the cake is the removing of every "offending" element: scoreboard, voice & text chat, kill cam, mature language, etc.
Bet the next Battlefield will be even more dumped down & rated for teens so they can cash in more. It's over guys, Battlefield is gone. Look elsewhere.

Absolutely, I don't get why people are so dam critical. :cool: Most of the "Gaming Journalists" praise the game into heaven, so do the "Battlefield Influencers".
No too critical word, not taking any risk of getting stripped from the "EA Sponsored" payroll (Jackfrags, LevelCap, Westie, Stodeh, and loads of Gaming review aka. advertising sites, cough).

So, let's have a look at "Metacritic" (Critic Score: 73 / User Score: 2.3, wonder why lol): Metacritic / Battlefield 2042
Steam250.com "Hall of Shame": Bottom 100 worst Steam games of all time according to unfortunate punters (8th worst rated game on Steam)
Steam User Reviews: Mostly Negative (~75% negative)
Discussions on "Reddit": r/battlefield2042
Reactions on "Youtube": Youtube / Battlefield 2042 Rant

People aren't "critical" about some bugs, they are mad because EA/DICE robbed them with misleading teasers, delivering something completely different than expected.
Something different that is on top buggy, unfinished & lacking of content. Like you ordered a buffalo steak with fries & get served raw meat with rice. :wtf:

Complain about change? No they're complaining about a shit buggy mess of a game that doesn't encourage team work thanks to these new specialists which is all about monetization, all of it is warranted.

Well i can't add to that as I haven't purchased or tried out the game yet. I always tend to wait a little longer as earlier bugs/cracks are expected. I guess 20 years of gaming made me smarter :p

Yeah the tuned down approach to team work kinda sucks. I always enjoyed those individual classes... adds a little more immersiveness when playing with mates (i get to shout over VC...."FFS wheres the medic/neeeeed ammo".. lol).

That's what I'm thinking about doing.
Haven't touched BF4 since uh, 2015 maybe?, and am thinking 2042 could possibly bring more people back :D

Clearly you didnt read or comprehend what I wrote. I said some of it's warranted. Complaining about it being a buggy mess, yes complain all day until youre blue in the face. Thats warranted. Complaining about specialist though, not so much IMO. I do miss the classes just like everyone else but I also like the specialists. I like Mackay. I love the grappling hook. That's a cool concept. Would have loved to see something like that in BF3/4. What I also like is being a sniper while not necessarily being a sniper class. I can revive while carrying an ammo pouch. Thats game changing for me in a good way.

What I dont like is how everyone is the same character and the cheesy end game screens. I miss when one side was just US and the other side was just say Russian. Lets have an old american grandmother (Faulck or w/e her name is) suddenly be russian. That fucks with my immersion.

I play this game solo and I do my own thing. I dont voicecom with people. I even disable in game voice so i dont have to bother listening to any stupidity.

wake up man, this is EA corporate BS filler content. Every BF since 4 has been utter shite, either on release or some time afterwards. Well maybe 4 was still alright, but then they went total nutcase.

They swap it around so they can keep themselves busy. DICE has been doing the same thing for how long now? And they still didn't figure it out on launch? That's just total incompetence, and its not DICE hasn't got a history in that regard. The talent drain at EA companies is very well visible, a result of EA management.

Its the same thing as what you see in CoD. The formula was already perfect a half dozen versions ago, and only deteriorates because it 'has to reinvent itself' or people won't notice a difference. A result of forcing devs to do a yearly or bi yearly release. At that time frame you just have to re-use assets to keep up.

ACG put it the best "Y'all remember when EA/DICE said that taking out the SP campaign will mean redirecting resources to MP component? Yeah, f*ck that".

Direct quote:
"I think that's just something that enables us to really lean into what we are best at. If you look at the DNA of the studio, what we've been doing for so long, we just said you know what, we're not going to have a traditional single-player campaign this time around, but we're going to put all that emphasis and all those resources into building depth into the multiplayer. Because that is what we do best."

The only good thing about this game being so bad, is it convinced me to reinstall bf4 and it's the most fun I've had with a shooter in years
BF4 and BF1 are my favourites. I remember when BF4 was new I played it all the time.

I have to say it drives me nuts how people still pre order EA games. I do understand people pre orderring CP77 for example, that disaster came unexpected. But pre ordering EA games., that's just insane.
I'm saying this because that's what cause us to keep getting broken releases one after another, they still get your money.

You can't complain of a broken system if you are the enabler. No amount of promises is going to make me pre order ever again. And i will not support any game that is broken at launch, i may eventually try it when it's dirt cheap, but that's it. If you want to release a turd, get the money, and promisse to polish it later then keep it for yourselves.
