We've had 20 years of "This [battlefield] game can't be that dumb." How much more do some of you need before you accept the fact that the BF series is always a rolling trainwreck? It's just that the trainwreck used to be fun goofy bugs like throwing tanks in the air with C4, and as they paired back all the goofy stuff it's just been the actual annoying poo poo that sticks out

Have you considered that seeing a trainwreck happen is fascinating and hard to look away from?

Basically we are like those disgusting onlookers that stop to oogle and block emergency personnel from helping accident victims, only we don't hinder anyone from joining or leaving the show...

I'm excited to just play Portal at launch aka old-rear end battlefield, of which they've showed basically zero gameplay.

The beta was branched off from the main build in august.

so we got a build that was 2 months older than 'main' one.

and it had all these problems in it, some of which they addressed up front like VOIP and BIGMAP and commorose. and then they have to announce after the beta that some but not all of the known and uncovered-during-the-beta issues are not going to be fixed for day 1 release.

in a build that is supposedly 2 months ahead of the beta.


i think its worth noting that Need for Speed Heat was built on frostbite and had cross platform support patched in about a year ago with its final update patch. cross platform works fine gameplay-wise but VOIP for me on xbox playing with a friend on PS4 was woeful. it was stuttering like mad when he talked to me, but not me to him he said. neither of us have issues in other cross platform games either.

the fact that a current iteration of frostbite engine has been in the wild supporting VOIP for over a year now (janky but quite possibly isolated to my specific experience!) is kind of worrying if they apparently still have not got it working 100% in their current build of 2042.
I kinda wonder if there are over a dozen different incompatible forks of Frostbite in use at EA at this point.

Like 2 Dragon Age forks, 3 NFS forks, 1 FIFA fork, 1 Madden fork, 4 Battlefield forks including mobile, a Medal of Honor fork, a Battlefront fork, a cancelled Star Wars game fork, a Squadrons fork, a Catalyst fork, the Andromeda fork, the abandoned Anthem fork, the new Deadspace fork, etc.

And absolutely no code sharing possible between them because of how spaghetti it is.

I have no idea if the game is going to be good or not even after the beta which had good and bad, and that we haven't actually seen anyone play the Portal mode kind of concerns me.

I'm buying it though so hope for the best.

This is deeply cursed, I think DICE have totally misunderstood the “only in Battlefield” wild stunts/kills thing to mean that players want BF to be ridiculous and comical, when actually I think players want an immersive authentic (but not ultra realistic) experience with silly stuff as a byproduct of the sandbox, not the other way round. That’s how it’s been since 1942.

2042 should have the grand gritty atmosphere of BF1 in a near future war scenario. The setting of war over mass refugee crisis, extreme weather and depleted resources is highly evocative but the marketing has failed to capture that, there’s a tonal dissonance.

Really I just want more multiplayer games to value seriousness and immersion, they’re not dirty words. C4 stuff can still fit into that.

Yeah, there is a big dissonance between setting and whacky trailer. It fells like they are trying to appeal to an audience that plays a different kind of game.

So everyone will have a perk it seems, even in portal. Not sure what's up with recon in bf3 getting extra ammo, i guess to encourage lone wolf sniping?

I never played WoW but were the ships actually moving or was it a case of the world moving around the ships? That's an old trick to solve the issue of a player character moving on a moving surface.
