Getting 85-100FPS with max settings using the DX12 renderer @ 3440x1440/1080GTX Superclocked/i7 6700K

This is not only the best looking game on PC, it's the best performing too.

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.

Yeah tanks are pretty much fine as they are. Maybe up the damage on anti tank stuff by 10% at most. Some of the attack focused tanks will chew up a unprepared squad. But there seems to be a good balance of the tougher tanks doing less damage and the higher damage tanks take less to kill. Depending on how much we can unlock I think it will even out nicely. Some of the light tanks are really good, fast and enough damage to hit and run really well but they die in like 2 tank shots or about 2-3 dynamite.

Oh quick note if you experience flickering or flashing on the screen try disabling the origin overlay first as that will usually fix the issue.

Oh yeah the gif of the guy trying to stick dynamite on the horse. Yeah it dose not work because dynamite dose not stick to anything, he uh probably should have tested that part before making that gif.

How can that be?


Installed and started the game.

1st match was Rush and the enemy team had 6 tanks and my team had no anti tank weapons, got crushed.

2nd match was conquest and I got sniped in my spawn over and over.

Yup, it's a Battlefield game.

Uninstalled.

I got in a couple rounds this morning and had a blast. The game looks amazing running in Ultra using a 1070 - easily the best looking first person shooter I've played, especially when the weather effects trigger.

I only got the medic so far but the weapons felt really satisfying, like they have a weight to them. The only annoyance I ran into was having my guy vault over small cover where I just ended up having to try 3 times or so for him to finally make it over.

Also, god drat that front train cannon can be devestating..

Looking at the K/Ds I can tell your team had more people killing while theirs had more people capping flags. The point differences make it apparent. It's not a bad thing, the only round I played this morning I went 29/3 with the tanks top score on my team with around 11k, meanwhile their team's top scorers were around 28k.

Whatever infantry only map equivalent of metro/locker we get this time around will get you to max rank so much quicker in this game.

Ah yeah, good point. I spent the whole round in the landship and the train so I wasn't paying much attention to what the rest of my team was doing.

I'm sure we'll have enough goons on tonight that we can get some good games going though.

Anyway. Game is good. I never liked sniping in the other BF games but here I kinda dig it. The anti-tank rounds are a nice bonus and they work really well against the small tanks.

Didn't have a chance yet to use a tank but the armored car works really well if you fill it up and race around like an idiot.

Edit: Tell me about preoders. Only people who order directly through origin get to play 3 days early, right? And you have to order the Deluxe or Ultimate edition? I'm not sure if getting to play 3 days earlier is worth 40 bucks.

Played it a bunch, up to rank 22. TNT is amazing and people don't expect it. At the end of the round the winning teams score gets doubled I think. Some of the weapons and gadgets are behind class ranks and apparently it's bugged where you only progress in those ranks for the first round you play on a server, so play a round then quit back to menu and then join another server for another 1 round.

-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.

Agreed, the way the game draws enemy units at range is much better yet it doesn't feel like they're artificially limiting the effectiveness of long-range weapons. I still wish there were more fundamental changes to spotting as it's incredibly powerful but the game just seems much smoother and even more enjoyable experience.

yea, deluxe and ultimate get you in 3 days early. I think you just have to decide whether the other perks are worth it, and look at the 3 days as a bonus. i probably will just be getting standard tho.

they spawn (supposedly) when one team is doing far worse than the other team. I don't know of the exact trigger. Also, desert map won't have zeppelin, it will have train only.

Played a whole round defending a contentious objective, got tons of kills, kept the flag our color, destroyed tanks, light vehicles, even downed a bomber. But I'm on the bottom of the scoreboard because I didn't play ring around the points

There is virtually no reason in this game to defend points.

Edit: To clarify, I still had fun so ymmv, just depends if you can enjoy playing the game however you want, even if while effective you aren't rewarded.

They don't even give you bonus defense points for kills? That's dumb. Defending against superior numbers is a lot more fun than attacking, in my experience, so that's disappointing that the game doesn't really reward it.

DICE did say that they would listen to players on the Conquest point changes. If you really really hate the system, just complain about it on places they are likely to read. I haven't tried it yet and thought it sounded cool, but it may be balls.
