yeah, haha, but each night it's just a lone TDM server so I don't really play anymore- although lately there's been a lot more players on. You don't see teams of Joker suits anymore but the game is still fun and it's heartwarming to hear your Wolf say "gently caress yeah" as you C4 something

In the fine tradition of EA executives trying to push into over-crowded markets, it also burned down the game.

Actually tank drivers bailing because being able to instantly get out of their vehicle making them feel safe owns because it meant a chance to steal a tank, a classic Battlefield tradition

I think I could count the number times I've seen a stolen tank in both BF1 and V combined on one hand

Why would a bail animation prevent stealing a tank?

I recall one game where someone bailed out of a tank, and I had a perfect line of sight to the driver's hatch. I just kept popping people as they tried to get in.

Because the only time people bail out of tanks is when they feel like they're about to die and have a chance to survive if they bail, and if that takes 2-3 seconds then nobody will ever do it.

BF1 tanks were loving valuable and even the average pubby realized that abandoning was the greatest dishonor. That and they tended to be giant clown cars requiring multiple players to operate all the guns so even if the driver bailed there was someone else in it. Exception being the artillery truck OF SHAME but those were the vehicle version hillwookies that never got close enough anyways.

BFV the tanks were cheap trash so it was more no one would dare bring them close enough to the fight to be stolen because that meant getting close enough to get utterly face-wrecked.

The fact that it took 2-3 highly vulnerable seconds to hop out (in view of the enemy team who loved the idea of shooting your rear end) meant you might as well stay in and shoot people since you were gonna die anyways.

I'm having a difficult time justifying $2600 for a gaming PC capable of running BF2042 well, when I could just spend $600 on an Xbox Series X. I currently have an Xbox One X so it'd be upgrading that.

Will probably end up going the Series X route...

I've found Frostbite scales incredibly well on low end machines while still looking great, but at the same time its hard to overlook the new consoles considering how stupid PC graphic card prices are right now.

Have they formally announced crossplay between pc/console yet?

We don't have the recommended specs yet but Call of Duty Warzone lists a GTX 670 and a i3-4340 as min spec. Now that does not always mean that you will be unable to launch the game but there are certain times where games need specific generations of hardware at minimum to run. It almost certainly will not be playable even if it can technically run.

You can blow the dust off and give it a try in the open beta whenever that happens but I'd start saving up if you really want to play and enjoy yourself. They have not announced if has cross-play but either way, I think the newer consoles all support mouse and keyboard if you wanted to play it for cheaper.

No matter how good this new battlefield will be, it will not be as good as bad company 2. Nothing compares with hopping around blasting people with the carl gustav or planting a bunch of c4 and blowing up the building. That was the peak battlefield experience. BF2 was really good too. I never played anything past bad company 2, but it looked like the rest of them weren't that great.

Although if anyone has ever played battlefield 1942 the secret weapons of ww2 that loving owned hard. Flying around in a goddamn gyrocopter blowing poo poo up was incredible.

sadly youtube also feeds me the ign/other game media channels ahead of the actual official videos also, the recompressed, garbled rear end 30fps ones.

its fuckin annoying that they somehow (read: its ad revenue because MS/EA arent running ads on their channels) take precedent over the official stuff but oh well.

I've seen em, because i opened them on my phone in my YT account and pulled them from history. maybe YT gives you different results on TV vs. the app.

I dont watch any gaming stuff on youtube besides digital foundry. the only thing I want to watch is official videos from official channels.


the 'gaming' channel on YT on my TV (which i literally never, ever go into, for the above reasons) didnt even list any official video for any of the E3 announcements. it was all reacts and 'what you missed' poo poo.

Why the Hate for BF:V? I just started playing it as it was released for free with PS -Plus and I am really enjoying it.

I have played all the BF's going back to the first one (1942) on PC and was really surprised how much I love BF:V on PS4 I think it's really good maybe one of the best battlefields.

The only reason I didn't buy it on release for PC like the other battlefields in the past is because of what happened with Battlefront 2 although that game is also really good now I got it for both PS4 and PC for $10.

My personal problem wit grfx card prices is that playing on console is a no go for me. I always play FPS games on PC because I can't stand the way they feel on a controller. KB/M is just hardwired in my brain. Everything else is fine, but not for a FPS.
I even have a PS5 but just nope, does not compute.

Not sure why that's your first assumption but ok.

I was just saying that there's very little a gunner can mess up for you in a tank beyond alerting people. Unlike the driver tank. Or any driver/pilot, really.

So if an AI soldier could fill that slot, it'd be neat.

From someone who didn't actually play BFV but watched a bunch of videos about it, most people's problem with the game seem to stem mostly from Dice's broken promises, overall shoddy handling of things like what happened with Firestorm and overall unwanted meddling with the game (such as changing the Time to Kill more than once) more than the actual game.

Although Battlefield staples like spotting apparently being gone might also not help matters?

I've seen some gameplay and... honestly kind of looks more like a much cheaper game too. Almost like a f2p even. Compared to BF4 anyway.

Aside from other things, there were generally too few vehicles on most maps, no transport helicopters, so mobility was limited, a BF game needs air and ground transport options, and also zip vehicles like quads.

Yeah it was WW2, but maybe WW2 just isn't a good setting for a BF game if it limits the vehicle options due to "realism".
They should have gone with cyborg woman or whatever that was and gone full one alternate reality instead of giving in to "gamers".

I'm actually really kind of hoping that Hazard Zone is a Tarkov style game now. I like the general gameplay concept of Tarkov but absolutely hate the fiddly janky precision simulation nerd bullshit and generally find the Tarkov community to really suck. Do a game like that with gunplay like Battlefield 4 and I'll play the poo poo out of that.

In BFV the Allied tank you could call in as a squad reinforcement was the crocodile which had a flamethrower for the third gunner seat. This flamethrower not only had a lovely range but would also obscure most of the vision of the driver in first person view when fired due to its location. So a gunner could just spam the flamethrower ineffectually, not hitting anyone, while drastically reducing the effectiveness of the main gun at the same time.

So yeah, :dice: has already proven they can make having a gunner a detriment.
