    Go play an infantry only game then if you don't like vehicles. Really amazes me that someone considers a 60 tonne tank to be "op" vs infantry, i mean who'd have thought it?

    Infantry are there to be farmed in BF, nothing new whatsoever.

    Not even ONCE have I been able to open the map yet in game - anyone else?

    Also, when a gunner or passenger in a vehicle does it feel to anyone else like the tank/car is just 'jittering' around everywhere? It's horrible and almost impossible to aim with how it moves around.

    The map ingame doesn't open yet, it's only a mini map in the current build.

    This is up there with one of the worst shooters I have played in recent years. I understand that it's a beta, but the main game will not be far off this. So disappointed :(

    Impressions are as follows :

    Person 1 - Its good, I'm enjoying it, looking forward to release, liking it more than BF1/V
    Person 2 - Its terrible, literally the worst game in computing history
    Person 3 - Its pretty good, got a few issues but the beta build is 3 months old so hopefully those will be addressed by release
    Person 4 - Its basically a copy/paste of Warzone
    Person 5 - Theres no scoreboard, how can I show off to people how awesome my k/d is
    Person 6 - Is this the new Valheim expansion?

    Contrarily, I'm finding that I am enjoying it far more than I enjoyed the BF1 or BFV beta's , which I guess makes it one of the better Battlefield games I have played in recent years ;)

    Yeah its one of the more "wtf??" statements about the game but I've already seen several people making the claim. Probably employees of Call of Duty who are just trying to poo-poo BF :) Either that or those people that we have all encountered before who just like to moan about everything for the sake of moaning about something

    Seems to be a very marmite game currently.

    Yup, thats how I've labelled it. Some love it, some hate it. Which of course doesnt really help people much when it comes to trying to gather opinions on it. Most of the big FPS streamers like it but of course the counter to that from the people who dont like it is that they are all shills, so that doesnt help people much either. I'd say try the open beta, keep in mind that its a 3 month old build, see if you like the general game itself and can overlook the issues as things that will be fixed, before making a purchasing decision. Or wait a couple of months post release and see what the general thoughts are (though that does make things a bit more tough as you are then going in to fight people who have learned the maps etc by then)

    I always wanted them to dispense with K/D in the hope that people will play it as a team game.

    Me too, its why I was ecstatic to see that there was no general scoreboard in this, its SO good to not see one of those. Personally I wouldnt be surprised if there are some people who are so against the game purely because they cant show off their K/D

    LOL, you've just dealt a direct blow to some of the BF3 and BF4 players on here.

    :D I've been against K/Ds in team based shooters pretty much from the day they came into being. Theres only one score which should be relevant in a team based game and thats the team score.
