I'm really not feeling this or the new Warzone map which is a shame; between BFV and Warzone I've barely touched anything else in the last 18 months (well except MSFS)

Christ this is bad.

Trying to play regular 2042 breakthrough 128 players, sat through about 3-4 lobbies for 10 mins each without the game starting, then on the 5th attempt it dropped me into the game with 5 tickets to go.

Game is really dying fast.

Shallow/boring gameplay now. Bugs, horrible design decisions. Cannot believe I waited 3 years for a new BF to get to level 70 in 70 hours after a month and be done with it.

As I've mentioned before I got the game for free and still literally see no reason to play it :( and I put a lot of time into previous BF games. As with so many games and so much software these days they put a huge amount of effort into trying to re-invent the wheel when they can't even make a working basic wheel.

I have it on play plus pro from my short trip to Kazakhstan

the children are playing fifa 22 and some tennis game plus the exta sims addon is keeping the other one happy so no lose if I dont play

tempted to revist Titanfall 2 for a bit

I couldnt bring myself to play BF last night still ****** about the helicopters farming everyone on tuesday night

every single half decent firefight we got into with anouther squad or two was shagged by hellicopters killing everyone on one side or the other bloody pointless playing the game

conquests is a dead mode on the game in its current state with no future other than servers full of bots

I would love to see how many actual servers there are not managed to join a rush game at the start yet everyone is midgame with a full team vs half a losing team

Fired it up today, saw Santa's v elves and turned it off


I thought you were joking. :cry:

"I think the majority of the comment section is ****** because instead of putting effort into the actual game or into fixing issues like the maps or the performance, they made a Santa mode that not many people care about. It's kind of a waste imo. Glad you are having fun anyway."

Player base : we want a scoreboard, overhauled specialist system, more cover and destruction on maps.
DICE : Understood. Here are some evil elves for you to kill.

Some of the comments on that video are hilarious and kind of tragic as well.

@Game you a 1.6 or source / cs:go player? What clan were you in?

played from 1 ish was in #sk187 and a sbcs and lots and lots of lan ( decent uk level teams and players )

used to skrim with really good players and to be fair the top ones I would struggle to touch when people call top players cheats they really dont understand the skill jump from good national to the next level

spent the last year trying to help organise a team never ever ever again they did well in clanbase toping it out I know not a massive achievement but so many argumernts and egos



then left 1.6 and just played source for fun that was when I reached my zenth just being casual it was awsome with no politics ect ect

I got persuaded to play for a cod clan for a few weeks the only official game I played was vs the top ranked team in europe that went badly and I thought bugger this


and moved to the World of Warcraft

now Iam just old and slightly above average :)

The game is more bearable and my KD is more akin to what I was getting in previous games. I guess this is mainly going back to 64 player severs. No one really asked for 128 players and I think it shows because there is far less cluster **** then there used to be.

The lack of weapons is a big problem though. I am also worried that content will dry up fast as the game has been a failure. They really should have done a solid month of beta testing before releasing this as it would have been better for it.

vehicle spawn times/numbers are still wrong on the 64 player when the airwar is even you dont notice it but if one side has no pilots three helis per side is a joke in 64

kd wise god knows getting 12-30 kills most games but die a lot

how this would be if every good infantry fight wasnt ruined from the air for both sides who know but lost count of the amount of times I get the jump on some people and a bloody helicopter kills me before I can ill them


not played now since tuesday night and still trying to decide If I will play tongiht or just take a few weeks break

I'm taking a break for a while on this one.

My issues:
Seems to take me 4-6 hits to kill anyone. At a distance they turn around and pop me almost instantly with any weapon.
When i snipe i rarely get a one shot kill, hard to pick out the head, about 10%. Im frequently one shot headshotted even when running about by other snipers, i reckon its about 50%
Players appearing behind me after i clear an area, i know it can happen with these games but it seems to be all the bloody time... Run in clear a room move on a bit.. bang from 5metres behind you. Its not COD!

Was trying this last night on the free weekend.

I hate the spidermans and supermans flying all over the place.

Can't say I like any of the maps, I don't know the name of it, but that map with all the cargo containers was just a nightmare, because of the mentioned superheros always being above you.

128 man servers just feel like mistake, too much of a cluster ****, especially with the amount of vehicles there are. To me, it felt that no matter what class/specialist you played, you needed a rocket launcher.

Do you unlock better rocket launchers or other methods of taking out armour? The basic launcher seems to do laughable damage, no matter where you hit them.
I managed to hit to a transport chopper and only took a third of his health.

After all that, I was looking forward to trying out Portal mode. Maybe because it was so late at night, I only found a few servers and they were either the 2042 maps of 1942.
I have to say 1942 has not aged well. I tried playing the anti-armour guy, which spawns with only a pistol and a bazooka, which was fine back in the day when the bazooka actually did some damage. I'm SURE you could 1 hit a tank if you hit it in the rear, but like the 2042 variants, it doesn't seem to matter anymore.

On the note of looking for servers, why are there no filters for portal mode? That's without mentioning the fact theres no server browser for the main game.

Heh - I could have written that word for word to describe what I am getting.

Cant really bring myself to play again this week, maybe I am just to old and cant keep up with the kids anymore but sick of plugging away with my plastic gun to no effect, only to get killed instantly by my opponent.

Free to play is just to get the dire steam player numbers up.

The game really is dying. Twice today I had to wait 20 mins+ to get a game of 2042 rush. Seems even the bots have quit
