Somewhat pissed the recon hero character is called "Casper" and not "Wookiee" or "Wook" or something. They could have really gone meta here but nooooooooooo.

e: also the BF1 resurgence allowed me to play air assault for the first time and I was able to be turret for the entire round of battlefield again. i used to love shooting down planes on 1942 in the little radar dish AA on Battle of Berlin. its just so relaxing

Canít you form a party in BF1 at the main menu, then queue together?

Yes and no. A.) The other people have to appear online within origin and be able to be seen and invited. B.) as said above you have to be in the squad, get INTO the server and only then does it prompt them to join said server. If you sit in a 10 person deep queue they just sit there with their thumb up their rear end going "Huh whats going on"

While I like that Origin has the "join on friends" functionality that steam does that in theory should put you in the same server and squad, I found it breaks so often that we just end up telling people the server name in discord and asking them to search for it and then manually trying to team and squad up, like the good old BF2 days.

I mean, yeah, that's the problem. It never works. There's zero point in it and they've never fixed it and apparently have no plans to. Which blows ones mind since they bailed out from Battlelog which worked and didn't require origin.

vehicle entry animations are still there, its just that the camera goes to the vehicle immediately while the soldier climbs in

test seems fun so far, AI is kinda crazy. I was on the roof of a building shooting down at soldiers and one AI flanked me with a grapple hook while another threw a perfect grenade up there and killed me. Then he grappled up to the roof himself and killed my teammate

another time I was running down a tunnel and turned a corner right into an AI. The AI then did a slide to dodge my bullets and headshotted me effortlessly

Game feels like a proper successor to BF4 and Im excited to see how it all turns out

No I think the animations are just bugged as I got one. We called in a vehicle drop for the squad and I climbed in and it played. My guy hopped on top of the tank tossed open the hatch and jumped in.

SOOOOOO It was kind of a weird system? You can hit Q and it pings basically anything and everything, Yes it seemed to also EXTREMELY briefly spot an enemy. But it more so slapped a pin down on the map in like a 3d overlay you could see that said "he's this way" And you could also use it to suggest to your team "Hey I wanna go this way" I don't think it was fully functional/working/implemented being as it was the technical test and as we've said it looked like an old as hell client (which DICE confirmed it was like a year old or more).

Bf1 is my favorite in the series. I wrote off BFV for a long time because I heard about all the problems it had. What people hadn't been saying is how all those problems are gone now and it's actually really good, I still like BF1 better but bfv is a solid and fun time in it's own right. Even if 2042 fixes all of it's problems, BFV will still be a better battlefield title than 2042.

BF V is still janky as hell, has poor mechanics and is a bad game in general. The worst balance, and I mean, The literal WORST balance in all of battlefield.

BF1 all day, every day over BFV in every category except for gun mechanics and sniping. The random deviation as a simulation for recoil in BF1 on automatic weapons is garbage and while I like the idea of the sweet spot mechanic for bolt actions the sniping in BFV is more skill oriented and more rewarding save for the BF1 headshot sound being the auditory version of crack cocaine.

GOD the BF1 headshot sound is literal heroine in my veins.

Pretty much just got it last night, played about as long as I've played 2042 so if there are long lasting meta problems I haven't noticed them yet but I'd say I've already gotten 5 bucks worth of fun out of it, since it scratches that itch quite well.

I get this. But I also don't fully agree. The removal of classes in conjunction with the seemingly awful map design are things I don't think we'll be "fixed" in 2042. Granted maybe its just orbital that is poo poo but the lack of classes seriously turns me off BF2042.

Okay then - you don't have to play, you can literally run along. Where's the problem? Don't poo poo up the thread where those of us who are actually going to play with constant "LMAO GUYS THIS ONE THAT ALL OF YOU HATE IS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER, I KNOW IT FOR A FACT CAUSE IVE PLAYED IT FOR SOOOO LONG <played it for literally 5 minutes> YOU GUYS SHOULD PLAY IT TOO CAUSE ITS SOOOO MUCH BETTER" Cause that's what you are doing.

Probably because it's dedicated just to battlefield, that's a grab bag server.

You should probably throw the other one in there too, there are currently over 40 goons using that exclusively for battlefield stuff.

I made it a while ago when people were asking what discord to use and no one posted one, if we all want to migrate to the other one that's fine too

We've been using pro elite gaming society and CTS mumble for uhhh.. Forever, you're not gonna get any of us who've been playing for a long time to migrate off of them. Sorry, and to note, like this isn't me trying to be an rear end or anything it's just honest to gods truth. We've got a tag and calendar setup where we can setup events and we consistently @ each other with the battlefield tag when we want to play. Plus its most of us in the actual "battlefield goons" group who have been playing for literal years. Ya'll can come on over, the moderation is good, and yeah its "grab bag" but its not some secular discord thats fired off designed to Tempus Thales itself off from the community.
