    Glad i got 2 days early access.. itll take me that long to get in a game.. so many errors, server disconnections.. matchmaking not working.. and only 2 Oceania servers running.. not a good start to win back players.

    There is a notice stating that they are working on Match making issues.

    Got into a game after a few tries. It's pretty smooth to play once in.

    Apparently squads don't work properly at the moment. No squad spawning.

    For anyone with matchmaking issues, some have reported that using the server browser helped.

    Yea I thought my origin account would allow access to PS4 beta. I was confused.

    What a difference 8hrs make.. hopped on this morning and straight into a server. Game flowed really well ttk i believe is ok.. big learning curve in how you play.. defiantly not a run and gun game anymore.. my thoughts on this has changed slightly to the positive..squads are working and so is map rotation.

    Edit: I will add though.. team balance is shit.. non existent.

    Watched some of your stream last night centaurus, didnt seem much action was happening... like you dont have that mental cluster of people in one spot. Kills seem significantly quick and the revive is cool.

    Thanks for popping in dude
    As far as the "action" I think some of that was due to squads not working so having to spawn at a flag or deployment definitely slowed that down a bit especially when I tried operations,,,spawning at deployment running for a distance to get back into the action it didn't feel right.

    Myself a manny's last match squads were switched on so it was quicker to get back into the fight and felt more like battlefield. Plus it meant squad revives were up too which was cool.

    I love the lack of SPOTTING u have to be more aware of your surroundings I managed to get behind a squad and take out 4 without them realising
    Can't wait to play in full squad with a good mix of classes because with the lack of ammo and regen you can't really be a 1 man army anymore. You can pick up the dropped ammo but the lack of regen-no spotting- and time to kill you have to be a beast to take on multiple players and survive consistently

    Played for a few hours last night and I must say it was dam nice(not including squad and lack of server issues)

    Rotterdam felt amazing with heaps of that battlefield feeling.

    Grand Op was awesome but also God dam annoying after the 3rd game of spawning in the plane waiting for 30 seconds to hit the ground and dying instantly. Repeat. Would be much better with squad spawning.

    Maps in general are amazing. Though building interiors need some furniture. Lighting is a little to bright outside and way to dark when going into a house, then it brightens, but it leaves you blind for a couple of seconds.

    Movement feels really clunky(BF1 felt the same on launch). I definitely feel there is some improvements to be made with it.

    Tank felt great to use. Maybe a little to weak on primary weapon and armor. Machine gun perfect.

    As you spend your scrap on upgrading weapons they become much better. Better handling, rate of fire and may size.

    Will be on again soon definitely.

    What's the ammo attrition like? From some of the videos I saw it seems like you spawn with plenty and with ammo on every flag it doesn't seem like anyone was running out.

    I was hoping thelat supports were going to be more important with ammo scarcity but it seems like they have weakened it from the alpha by giving people too much. Also caters towards lone wolf players which I don't like.

    Basically you start with 3 clips. 1 in the gun and 2 others. I only ran out once while trying to push the enemy back at an objective. Picked up a rifle on the ground and kept going. So It's not bad if you are playing objectives. Would massively hurt lone gunners and solo snipers not on objectives

    That last sentence hits it right on the head. Play the objective and run with a squad u will be fine.
    Camp on a hill or hi traffic zone as a lone wolf u won't last long before you have to go find ammo

    I've only had a couple of quick rounds. I died so fast and so often running out of bullets wasn't a problem.

    Not a big fan of the combination of no spotting + no real kill cam + incredibly low TTK. It's a bit like they made hardcore = normal mode.

    I'll give it more of a go over the weekend.

    I would like to know where I got killed from.
    But one of my biggest complaints about BF games was the spotting and how long you stay spotted, personally I love the new lack of spotting, it allows you to put on a flank or change positions without being lit up like a Xmas tree for 15 seconds.
    TTK takes some getting used too, it feels fine when u are dishing it out but quick'ish when on the receiving end. It means you can't just charge around all guns blazing ( which is something I used to do ) just means changing it play style a little and use your surroundings more.
    From what I've played in the last couple days I personally like it MORE then BF1 already they have gotten rid of all the " casual " aspects that ruined BF1 for me and replaced them with more squad focused elements. Yes there are bugs it is a BF game after all, I'm not sold on the gun progression system yet ( but I does add a reason to re-level a weapon to too the other side of upgrade tree )

    DISCLAIMER FOR PEEPS STARTING WITH OPEN BETA ****
    REVIVES----- TAP square to revive DON'T HOLD I see a lot of players complain they are picking up other weapons REVIVE = TAP pick up weapon is HOLD. All so found out you can cancel revive by TAPPING button during animation

    Yep it's battlefield. Usual complaints. Pretty much BF1 with a few tweaks like a chick added and WW2 instead of the Great War...

    My first thought was movement felt like bc2 and you stay alive longer than BF1 definitely 4.

    I always thought spotting should be only via a form of equipment such as binoculars... once they arent being used the spot disappears. 3d spotting in bf4 etc was just too easy

    Another thing on the Ammo query.

    When you run over dead bodies you pick up a new clip. So if your at objectives or busy spots it's even better
