Playing squads is fine and dandy, but the game as it currently is makes playing solo even harder than it was because visually there's no way to tell who has what. In every other bf game you could tell at a glance who was who, no longer the case. A superb bit of game design from the slow learners at dice.

My issue is when you're down, not knowing how far your squad is from you, or the nearest medic.

I have played about 10 hours so far, haven't actually touched the 2042 side of things, only played 1942 portal mode :D

I havent had a single crash on this game, i wonder if the crashes are GPU temps because I have a Geforce 1660 and I go medium details for fps

Definitely not, my card is below 60c all the time and I've had quite a few dx crashes

Never regretted buying a game so much lol i can live with some of the bugs..but hit reg and performance is totally ruining it for me, i have had some fun playing but so wish i could get a refund lol i think the game will take at least 6 months to become playable

Dont really mind the maps like some people do, they are ok to me, not amazing but playable, my gpu sitting at 50% to 70% usage is something i cant live with though, even with gsync the drops down to 58fps are jarring and the mouse feels weird when it drops

Same for me, I have to push the resolution up to something stupid just to get 90% gpu usage and even then I'm dropping below 60fps. On a 3090 :-|

Getting lowish frame rates (20-42 with NVIDIA surround, and 40-70 in 1080p) and quite severe stuttering and freezes on my i7 4790K (@4.5GHz) and 980ti system, GPU is hardly doing anything but CPU is almost constantly in the red using the built-in performance overlay in 2042. In contrast Battlefield 5 ran great on this system with NVIDIA surround and now even on a single 1080p screen the CPU is severely bottlenecking the GPU.

Seems to be severely CPU bound according to the limited testing done between myself and the group I play with. Also googling seems to show a much higher percentage of Intel CPU owners complaining of bottleneck issues. Anyone with an AMD CPU able to confirm if this could be an Intel only problem?

It is odd considering that the minimum specs list the i5 6600k and the recommended specs are an i7 4790 lol

Definitely not, my card is below 60c all the time and I've had quite a few dx crashes

Same here!

  1. On the RTX 2070 Super it tends to just crash to desktop with either no error message or a driver has hung, even though it's maxing out at just 65C. It's sporadic too, sometimes it will happen throwing a grenade, other times just opening up the menu.
  2. On the GTX 980 system, I've had a couple of hard crashes with a complete system freeze, again not really doing much.
  3. Checking the overlay of the game it's really smashing the CPU hard in areas it shouldn't do, yet it's the GPU that's crashing!
  4. On both systems they suffer from stuttering, although the RTX 2070 isn't unplayable, at times the 980GTX is, with massive amount of stuttering to the point you are facing the ground sometimes.

I only play with mates so that is your problem playing with randoms. You guys should add each other on here and group up or use the unofficial ocuk discord. It's dead in there I don't know why nobody uses it.

you speak wise words

and even if we have only 2/3 of us the extra squadmates tend to join in its just a shame we dont have ingame voice so we can get to know them

he how we used to groom people on our own servers back in the day

have friends I made in BFV and BF1 from complete randoms

Congrats, still doesn't take away from the fact that the games attack of the clones and its impossible to tell who has what.

My friend used the exact words last night at the very least they need alternative names and skins for both factions

and locking in specialists to squad roles

So old Gimp and two other gimps can only carry the medic crates and aa ect

but not the ammo

then Scorpion gimp and Korean gimp, gimp with the sheild can only have the assault roles

maybe Neutral it? uncertain what pronoun to use will also be in this role

I will also Add Iam uncertain on the Gender roles and relationships for the other specialists I wish EA could explain then all now they have my attention

cant really avoid the big frame drops on this game to the low 60s, even on low settings AND dlss on, using a 3090,@1440p, I have no idea who thought releasing the game on this condition would be a good idea, changing graphical settings barely makes any difference to me, feels laggy no matter what, battlefield V absolutely flies on this rig with average of 160-180 FPS and if i am honest i think it can look better at times, absolutely gutted for wasting money on this turd of a game.

Exactly everyone needs to join the ocuk discord and just team up

Yeah something is fundamentally broken, Jayz did some comparisons between a 2060 super and a 3080ti and there's barely any difference in the FPS; (skip to around 9-10 mins)

I hope we'll get a patch by the end of this week, it's extremely annoying having to deal with the damned hovercrafts. I'd say 80% of my deaths are because of them :rolleyes:

since launch we have been ice/sand pirates but sadly the days are numbered survivabilty has massivly dropped and thats before the nerf

they can be a pain now but easy to deal with as a squad with decent unlocks

Dice as usual getting ready to nerf stuff - just as players get the unlocks and learn how to take things down easy.
