I miss the gloriously broken ragdoll physics of BF2. Watching someoneís corpse fly a few hundred feet into the air from a direct artillery hit never got old. Iíve seen it happen in BF1/5 if you take enough explosive damage while vaulting or climbing.

I remember flying a blackhawk to a beach point on Gulf of Oman just as arty landed, and a floppy carcass bounced across my windscreen.

Truly a battlefield moment.

There are a few streamers at level 500 which I believe is the cap. I don't know how to wrap my head around that. I can understand Warzone players having high levels and prestige - I'm fairly sure Jackfrags is prestige 16? - because that game is constantly changing and evolving and pushing new content. Battlefield V is static and not very good.

There are a ton of people who play video games who don't look at them critically at all. And they're not wrong to do so, if you just wanna shoot WW2 mans in the latest WW2 shooter fuckin' go for it, but that sure ain't my brain. Mine's always screaming about "This animation is too long" and poo poo like that.

If the leak about Hub is correct, I would imagine Hub will have a completely separate gun/vehicle progression system from main 2042 if theyíre keeping guns accurate to the maps from their respective games. I wonder how that will work.

e: oh it specifically says it might just be a sandbox with no progression

I believe the leaks have stated that Hub will use 2042 mechanics and gun play and I could see that or it being direct, modern replication of old stuff. The latter is a shitton more work though, depending on how they're planning to support Hub.

Yeah, it was a blast hunting the enemy teamís carrier in a submarine. Could get very tense. But there are few battlefield moments quite like putting a full spread into a enemy carrier and then spending the next fifteen minutes trying to clear datum while getting depth charged by an extremely unhappy destroyer guy.

I donít remember anyone ever doing anything resembling useful with any of the ships. Someone beaching the carrier so the shore cannons or tanks could freely shoot any planes or people that spawned on the deck was my Battlefield Experience.

I could very well be the only person that ever put effort into it. Itís slow, and youíll have a terrible k/d, but itís fun. Just takes quite a bit of patience, which is of course a terrible play style for BF lol.

Oh yeah the submarine was awesome, I loved that on the big naval maps.

Playing BF4 after years of CoD the biggest difference is how long the TTK is now, I will hose someone and just turn expecting them to be dead and they will get me back, lol.

Reinstalled BF1 after my Titanfall2 comeback ended in spectacular failure. BF1 is still so good. I know it's complete nonsense, but I love all of its weird, barely functional prototype guns, half of which end up blocking your LOS. They've got so much more character than the same suite of modern ARs you see in every other game.

I am also reminded of BF1's reverse performance history, where it kinda runs like poo poo now.

They did something in bf1 about 6 months into the game and It started to run much worse. It might have been one of those cpu updates to heartbleed or whatever the ghost one is. :iiam:

I managed to get a couple buds to play BF4 with me and we had a blast last night. One of my friends plays engineer so we spent the whole round with me spotting and him with the rocket launcher and it turns out the "spot everything for a whole round" strategy works so much better when you have a dedicated engineer to shoot at what you're spotting instead of all the randos on your team just ignoring the easy layup rocket kills. :v:

I just love being a dick to the sky kings by making them deal with a constant locked tone the whole time.

If they include more of the outside areas I'm all for metro. At least BFV's had enough flanking routes to make the map semi playable/not a complete and utter slog to play through. If they can incorporate those changes it'll at least be alright.
