    It was the launch trailer that did the damage, but only because it accurately reflected the actual philosophy of the game.

    The issues I have with BF5 are around game design. The actual mechanics (netcode, graphics, gunplay) are all great. Itís the schizophrenic tone that is the problem. Theyíre trying to push a cosmetic transaction model like Fortnite has had so much success with, but in a WW2 setting. Thatís not what the mainline BF games have ever been about. They did have a very specific game about cosmetic microtransactions, called Battlefield Heroes, but thereís a reason that they called this game BF5 rather than BF Heroes 2: the mainline games are way more popular, and sell to a different audience.

    On top of that, theyíre trying to have their cake and eat it too: theyíre saying Ďdonít worry about all of these goofy cosmetics and anachronisms, this isnít a serious WW2 gameí while at the same time telling us we canít have M1 Garands, or Shermans, or any maps set outside of Europe because weíre only doing the British and German factions at launch, and we couldnít possibly add stuff that isnít realistic to those two factions. Theyíre keeping all of the baggage of the setting, while jettisoning all of the good stuff that could actually help with immersion basically.

    WW2 is an amazing setting for a Battlefield game, itís how the series kicked off, and both BF1942 and BF1943 were amazing games. Itís a bit of a kick in the guts when those older games did a far better job of presenting a WW2 BF game than the latest and greatest iteration does. BF5 in WW2 shouldíve been a no brainer, a WW2 Battlefield game should just about make itself, but instead we have a game that doesnít really feel like a WW2 game at all, at least not to me.

    I played an absolute metric fucktonne of the Beta because I wanted to be wrong about the game, and I wanted the beta to change my mind. But unfortunately it just confirmed my doubts.

    At the end of the day, we as game consumers dictate what happens in the gaming industry. Buy horse armour? Welcome to paid piecemeal DLC. Donít buy Battlefront 2 because of the bullshit loot boxes? Watch pubs suddenly start back-pedalling from loot boxes. If youíre not happy with the direction of a game, the solution isnít to buy it and bitch about it, itís to not buy it ultimately. So thatís where I am with BF5 unfortunately.

    Iím also not telling other people what to like, if you enjoy it then go for it! Especially at the heavily discounted prices weíre already seeing.

    Metacritic User Score of 2.3 says enough to know that fans are super pissed. I won't be buying it,and no I never played the beta, I never bought BF1 either, (I did play the beta and I didn't like the game). I gave up after BF4 having endless drama, although it was eventually finished and it was a great game, the damage was already done.Don't get me wrong, I loved the battlefield franchise! ...once. But greed,politics and expansion have gotten in the way of making a game that the fans actually want. I have played every other battlefield game with many hours logged, and in my mind they lost their vision letting EA acquire DICE.
    EA are so big they eat up everyone that steps out with new innovate stuff and slap their business model into the mix and fuck it all up eventually in one way or another.
    Even Respawn Entertainment ( the original Activision COD guys that actually had a clue) gave in to the EA juggernaut. I was hoping they may once again bring something amazing to the gaming world shooter genre but EA man they are just too big and infecting the whole gaming industry with shit.
    If you're not going go listen to the loyal fans and accept some interaction and compromise then burn in your own decisions EA.

    Regardless of my comments I still wait in the wings in hope that Battlefield will come back to greatness and I'll be all in....Alas it is not now.....

    Cheers for well thought out posts, DLC rarely bothers me as I flat out refuse to buy any except maps which I normally see some value in though buying premium bf4 left a bit of a bad taste as there were simply not enough servers running alternate maps most of the time, if people want to buy face paint and shiney gun skins that doesn't bother me either.
    I guess I'm just not enough of a purist to care that much about anachronisms, so long as they aren't selling personal nukes the game play is fun and enough to keep me amused and feel like it's money well spent. There is plenty of laughs in party chat and only a few wtf! moments, game is less buggy than either 4 or 1 were at release that's for sure..
    See you on the next one I guess

    You havent played since the beta clearly! Theres something dodge with netcode for sure, graphics take ages to load in so theres floating guns and unrendered character models for the first few seconds of eqch round and loading screen and i'm really struggling to get kills (yet can die instantly) - not a problem in the beta build we played (which is actually what changed my mind to buy the game - I enjoyed it!).

    The current version is clunky and needs a patch. It is, overall, a good game but I shouldve just re-installed BF4 and saved 70 bucks.

    So new single player war story, new MP map (Panzerstorm), and test range. Iíll be looking for Panzerstorm footage with interest to see what a tank-centric map looks like in BF5. I still think that most BF maps should be tank-centric

    Direct link to patch notes PDF:
    http://eaassets-a.akamaihd.net/dice-...2018_FINAL.pdf

    Update should roll out about 21:00 AEDT tonight according to DICE.

    Either the hit reg was stuffed or he was a team mate and the name wasn't displaying. You should definitely have been landing hits.

    He was running with a bunch of enemies (they were comi g from that objective) and I get this a few times in every round... The problem is I then try to adjust my aim to compensate - like I try to lead moving targets but of course thats just missing. Difficult to fi d the spot when you dont know what to look for :/ I ended up in single player last night cos the shots actually land.

    Is that the ZH-29 TP? I tried using that in the Beta but ditched it because I found the hit registration really wonky with it. I suspect I was trying to fire it too fast and if the gun hasnít been given enough time to resettle thereís deviation (even though thatís supposed to be gone in BF5).

    Or maybe it was a friendly

    My YouTube feed is telling me that a recent change that DICE made has ruined the gunplay. Apparently theyíve nerfed the damage of nearly every single weapon by 15%, which apparently is as terrible in practice as it sounds on paper. As I said above, I thought the TTK in the Beta was spot on and one of the few things they actually nailed with BF5.

    Supposedly the change is in response to really bad player retention for BF5.

    The 15% is pretty big but They have announced more is on the way to rebalance and adjust further.

    TLDR, TTK was reduced to assist newer players who were struggling.

    For a company that has been a major developer for at least a decade and backed by a mega publisher, they sure do make amateur mistakes in both communication with their player base and game development.

    I have to ask the question that I always ask, wtf have these guys been developing and testing before release when only now are they coming to the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) that their game has balance issues.

    It's DICE, they officially don't know what made their past games popular. They are just trying to follow market trends and are shocked that they have poor player retention. They would rather place the blame on balance and TTK than question their own design choices.

    DICE have suffered some brain drain in recent years. A number of other big development studios have opened in Stockholm, and EAís push to make DICE an annual Star Wars or Battlefield production line means that some important people have left the studio.

    Thier biggest problem is they are too busy trying to make a game that will appeal to everyone. It's all about maximising profit over making a good game and it can't possibly work. It began when they started trying to paoch the COD crowd and it has become more of a fast paced twitch shooter with each iteration.

    It means that any idea they implement they don't commit too because a group of people complain so they water it down.

    Case in point the attrition system. The lone wolf players complained that they were penalised when not working with a squad. So they watered it down diluting the importance of squad play. They now have a system that is trying to appease everyone and is half arsed.

    Same with changing things because new players are finding it too hard. It means that you lower the skill ceiling and put off existing players. They need to decide who thier main demographic is and make a game aimed specifically for them.

    This video sums it up pretty well:

    Itís a strange beast this game. The overall consensus is that people like the game itself. Nearly every review and feedback I have read has stated that the game is close to be great, but there a number of small things, that when combined, are fairly big that ruin it.

    Again, in proper game testing and research, these things would have come out. The beta seemed pretty pointless. It was a demo of the shipped product. A beta implies that changes would be made.

    I am beginning to think that this franchise is doomed. It will be the first BF game I have not played since Modern Combat 2. I went into JB and EB today and didnít even look at this game. Itís sad, I have had good times playing them, but the dumbed down mass appeal has destroyed it. I really hope they donít bring back Bad Company. They will only destroy that series as well.

    I haven't even looked at it on the shelf, played the beta and didnt do it for me.

    In my opinion it doesnt feel like battlefield but rather a dull cod hybrid

    They should worry about old player retention not new players! Hit detection bugs need fixing before adjusting the things that work fine. TTK is irrelavent if shots dont count.

    Look I feel that this was a really stupid mistake but at least they are trying stuff and not being complete fucks. Wish they would try this shit in a temp game type or something instead of the main game. Treat it like a test server.

    The game is nice to play with a squad hopefully people start coming back

    Honestly, the game direction on BF5 has been amateur hour. There are some people at DICE who are getting paid a lot of money to be really bad at their job.
