I inexplicably played and am playing the poo poo out of Battlefield 4. I don't like any other modern warfare type shooters, so if this is that but without the modern warfare part, I should like it even more.

Oh, Dee, you card. :-*

Had a lot of fun in the three games I played, especially the last. I wound up as squad lead and we marched around the map with one of each class. I love how far you can chuck ammo and health. Maybe it's just because the model is so small, not sure. Horses are pretty good if you can get around behind the enemy and just slice away. I'm getting around 90-100 fps at 2560x1440 (dx12, ultra) with a 980ti and someone in game said their 7870 was netting 40-50 on high. Pretty impressive.

Edit: wait until Wednesday if you didn't sign up by the 21st. It should show up in origin for everyone.

Not much sniping. Rush is broken right now though, since nothing can take tanks out at a distance they just get close enough to be safe and spawn kill like hell.

Performance isn't too bad for a beta. I was able to put everything on Ultra, except the settings below, on my 980, and it hovered between 55-60fps. I turned the below options to the listed settings, and was able to keep it at 55-60fps. Haven't tried DX12 yet though.

Post-Processing - Medium
AA - Off (big hit to framerate, even on FXAA Low, may still be buggy)
Ambient Occlusion - SSAO

Edit: Tried DX12, didn't seem to effect framerate one way or another. Maybe AMD cards will have better luck.

As a self-professed tank whore this game right now is completely amazing. No one knows how to deal with you and people are more than happy to run directly at you with a bundle grenade in a vain attempt to hurt you.

There's just something so magical about looking at the end game score screen and reading "K/D: 28.00"

Quick note, doing some testing, but I think the Resolution Scale option may be broken/mislabeled.

I set it to 100%, thinking that should render at my native res. But the tooltip for the slider says you can go over 100% to get downscaling via supersampling. My slider only goes to 100% though. Thinking nothing of it, when I go in the game, I have all AA disable, I'm seeing zero jaggies. And my performance is a little less than expected. Then when I go in the settings file where are your preferences are saves, I notice the "GstRender.ResolutionScale" option is set to 2.0.

So I'm thinking, at least on my system, setting to 100% resolution scale is actually rendering at 200% really. Going to go run some tests....

yea 50% scale is your native resolution

I still think it may be buggy. When I switch to 50% scale, if I check in the settings file, the "GstRender.ResolutionScale" is set at something 1.4400099, or something weird like that. Maybe that's is DICE's definition of the exact same as your native res, I don't know. But if I change the settings in the file to 1.0 even, then in the game it says it's rendering at 42%.

So who knows at this point.

First impressions:

-Less bullshit deaths than BF4. There's obvious stuff like less autocannons and futuristic chain-explosion machines, but stuff like cone of fire, heavy-feeling recoil, and the bayonet charge for closing open ground result in less long-range picking than BF4, which I like as it was my #1 beef with that game.

-Melee owns. It's saved my rear end during some inopportune reload moments.

-Support kinda blows on PC. As a result, few people run it so don't expect many ammo restocks, exacerbating the current tank problem. I wish they would bring back ammo stations.

-Not looking forward to the progression system that both level-locks and charges you for poo poo. Also not a fan of the idea of gun customization coming, but that's purely me.

-Horses are a blast. Used one to flank around a nasty chokepoint in rush and ended up getting a five kill streak and clearing the way. If you play them smart, they're useful and a lot of fun.

-Behemoths can change the tide, but if the team that gets it is crap, it doesn't help much. Most of the time, the train gets the team a quick row of caps, but they'll go back to doing the dumb stuff that made them lose and the other team ends up regaining the losses whether the train's dead or not.

-Rush has some nice reforms. I may have been misunderstanding the situation, but it looks you can't interrupt the planting animation by killing a guy. It looks like it's just a quick "hold e" and the progress bar just goes, as I died and I think I planted the bomb (it may have been someone planting at the same time, I don't know). On the flip side, it seems like disarming takes less time in this game than previous ones. Haven't seen the artillery strikes or how they're supposed to work yet.

-The ding-dongs saying Conquest would be easy time for people just wanting to farm points are not smart. It takes a long, long time for a single person to cap a whole flag, enough for the enemy team to notice and come looking for you. Most times, it feels like there are basically two solid caps going on, with everything else up in the air. Not a fan of the tight time limit in the current beta servers. Most games don't reach the ticket limit.

Also expect pubbies to be talking about how the fact that even on low settings and with 15 fps, the game still looks great for the entire match.

There is for sure something screwy with this.

I can't choose 60hz refresh on my monitor without the graphics getting all mushed, I guess from some unintended downscaling? If it run it at 50hz its fine.

Also, I don't know if it's just a thing for the beta, but the game doesn't seem to restrict how many players are needed for a match. Even if you're the only person on the server, it doesn't let you run around waiting for more players, it will just start up a full game just for you.

I jumped on an empty server just so I could test settings and getting a feel for the game, and I ended up earning two levels by capping objectives.

Nothing there, it was actually the first thing I checked. But Dice promotions never seem to work for me anyway and the Insider page occasionally forgot I signed up, so I am not that surprised. (EA's two factor authentifications sometimes just do not go through either, fwiw)

I just played one conquest round. Game is good. Tank whoring is not as op as people say unless you're avoiding capping flags. You don't get c4 jihadis coming out of the woodwork like the other games but you're definitely not invincible.

Runs ultra @ 1440p at 50% res scale (that's a 100% apparently) pretty smoothly on a 1070.

edit: looks like 42% is actually native res.
