USAS frag rounds + irnv lets go.

See the current version of FuckBite concerns me. The main reason I never got into 1, V or Battlefronts is they just dont feel right to me after so much time in 3/4. I'm remembering correctly right? It is a new iteration of the engine since after BF4? I've been deciding whether to buy based on the beta since 3 so it fuckin sucks I gotta preorder for that, or early access anyway. But I guess I can just cancel as others have said they will.

Bots bad. They were fine playing UT on PS2 when there was literally no other choice. Fine if its just for a practice mode, kill time waiting for a server, but I dont want them in my actual game. There'd better still be HC too, and you guys better play it. Reg date 2008, but played 4-5 years of 3&4 by myself like a dummy. Even if it doesn't live up to them though I guess I can see it being fun playing with a group. Especially with the advent of shadowplay and stuff now, I never got a single clip of anything that happened in 1200 hours or so of 3&4.

When I was in the Battlefield 1942 modding scene I knew a very talented coder who, for his own fun, combined every mod he found into one Megamod. He showed me pictures of it and it had crazy poo poo like Star Wars Tie Fighters fighting Tiger Tanks with spider legs instead of tracks while an M1 Abrams ran over a medieval knight on horseback and a Pirate Galley laid down anti-aircraft fire.

DICE needs to find that guy and just publish that mod.

I tried, I dunno, sometime last year to fire up BF4 and give it a try. I dunno if I was playing warzone at the time but I just bounced right off of it, and I'm a vet of ~800 hours. But I think whatever I was engrossed in at the time put me off. I downloaded again today and boy did it feel good. Managed an MVP round in like my third match, the sniper felt like cheating after playing Cyberpunk and using the big gently caress off rifle I was using in that which had about 15 seconds in between shots.

However, after killing most of my afternoon playing it, I eventually ran into a couple of real grindy, smothering rounds where the enemy team just effectively used their armor while we had one round for example where a guy in the lav had like 50-1 ratio but was doing absolutely nothing to advance our cause. Thats how my sessions would usually end when I was hardcore into the game, so I'm looking forward to hopefully hooking up with a few of you (on PC) to get some good squads going in the coming weeks or perhaps months.

Its funny how you hear that a lot, "died to someone I never saw". Thats kinda the point isn't it? My boorish, Rambo like approach leads me into as many senseless, out in the open, man to man encounters as the civil war, but you like to get the drop on someone when you can.

Once again I will post this gem from the glory days of the site. Though its written about a much shittier game, basically everything still applies

Metro is so loving great, man. I remember in bf3 popping off a m320 round down the locker hallway and getting 8 kills at once or something to the tune of 1000 points for one shot.

The other day when I got to sit down and have an actual session, I had one round where I knocked like 2 or 3 lil birds with the attack boat. Then in the next round i shot about 4 more out of the sky with the tank and that's definitely the most satisfying battlefield kill there is.

I think most of that stuff is broken for bf4 now. Hooked up with a goon last night from discord, but I just use the in game server browser and stuff now instead of Blog. I'm using this new EA desktop beta app instead of origin, and it seemed to use a totally different friends system all together. I couldn't see or accept his invite until I relaunched in origin. And even then we both had to restart the game again before we could see each other. And even then squad building in the menu was out of the question, I had to just join a server and let him join on me... and they put him on the other team. It did keep us together once we got in the same squad though.

I was trying to edit my emblem as well in blog, and it kept telling me to switch to the companion app. That linked me to a website that looked like it was formatted for mobile, that didn't seem to acknowledge the existence of bf4 at all even though the popup assured me all my emblems and such would be carried over. That site linked to the companion app from the Windows store but when clicking on that, it just says it's unavailable unless you have a key. Thankful the game works at all

Playing bf4 the past week, the crazy thing to me is just how good it really was. I went on a few year forced hiatus from shooters after bf4 due to nothing good being out and then went fortnite-apex-warzone until last fall or so when I again was tired of all available offerings.

Going back now, the maps are so good. Ah, maps! what a novel concept. Not just one big half assed piece of garbage on repeat, actual varying places to shoot people! And you can hate Metro if you like, but then you have your Zavods, Hainans, Paracels, Golmuds, etc. I wonder will people finally be tiring enough of the BR formula to give 2042 a chance at success outside of hangers-on like us.

I did find the audio was crappy though, and I realized I didn't have war tapes enabled. What a huge difference to the audio quality and immersiveness.

I got almost 800 hours but my kd is only a shade over 1.1 because I always played solo and yet wanted to win so I ran around trying to cap as many flags as possible like some sort of suicidal maniac. So for every 40-4 vehicle domination round theres an even or close to it where I struggled to protect flags the whole round and still lost. I will never get over that I was active here during those years and never thought to join a goon squad.

There's a racist piece of poo poo named Axewolf spamming BF1 servers with racist bullshit. I reported him a few weeks ago and have multiple screenshots and this guy is still at it. He's been in 2 of my matches tonight despite leaving as soon as I noticed his spam.

Anything that can be done to get this guy banned? Reporting him through Origin does nothing and somehow modern Battlefield games lack the functionality to report players???

I was in a game the other day and I nabbed the AA, and a friendly shot me with the tank, I guess upset that I took his ~precious~ AA. I realized then that theres no way to report anyone, even on a server level on that particular one. What a pile of horse poo poo.

I actually saw one maga tag too so far, which is a welcome change from warzone.

I only play hardcore but the server browser has lots of advanced filters. I have it set to 60hz or greater tick, conquest large, 64 players, no more than 10 slots free and I get a bunch every time, with several with good ping that I can choose from. I usually lean towards the severs that have the most maps available. I haven't gotten a round on Hainan yet, or Propaganda or Sunken Dragon which were all good.

My main issue with BF4 vs 1 is that 1 is super playable solo and without much unlocked, but 4 has a lot of the good stuff behind a time grind and can be utterly miserable if you don't have a squad with the means to fend off vehicles.

Seeing I can't successfully round up any goons (stop playing warzone fuckwads) I play solo. It's usually a few rounds of a straight breeze before a frustrating one, like on Shanghai yesterday. Complete blowout, but I did c4 a couple tanks on my own.

Some dude went like 80-4 in the attack chopper while they held the tower and exploited the rooftops. It was all so obvious but we didn't have an answer. That's frustrating. Those rounds don't happen often, but they can end a session with the bad taste they leave in your mouth

Thing that concerns me most in anticipation of 2042 is how none of the games to feature the current version of frostbite have felt right to me. Shooters are just like shoes to me in that they need to feel right or else nothing else matters. I've only played brief beta stints of 1, V, Battlefront but they all just felt off. Hoping 2042 isn't as such.

codo27

See I dont think I've ever moaned over "getting killed from idk where". If I'm new to the game, ofc there are gonna be people who know better. I feel like I can usually attribute deaths to being my own fault when they are, which are no cause for frustration because the error can be fixed. Same reason I've never gotten mad playing Souls games.

Its all about the movement and gunplay for me, which is why I hate Valve games. They are loving ice skating simulators and the movement is all floaty and wrong, and I hate it. If you pepper enough confirmed headshots and the guy ain't going down, thats a big "nah gently caress this" moment for me in initial feeling out of gameplay. If bullets aren't going anywhere near the crosshair, gently caress that too.

I know it'll never be addressed because its just one of those Battlefield™ things but I'd like to see repairing changed as well, thats more justification for having skipped V if you can repair from inside the drat thing. I dont know how accurate vehicle damage is compared to what it would be irl, but I'd like for it to be such that you had to bring vehicles back to base and repair them, and it would take more time. At the very least, none of this magical, get out and wave your torch for a sec to undo a direct hit from another tank poo poo. And ofc the chopper obscenities. I kinda want my cake and eat it too I guess, because I have no time for these slow paced, more tactical oriented shooters, but I also dont want every detail to be completely off the wall either.
