My hot take as someone who has played thousands of hours of battlefield since codename eagle:

it looks pretty cool

battlefield 2 delivered all its exposition through loading screen text and it was more than enough

So yeah, has already proven they can make having a gunner a detriment.

bf4 autospotted you on the map when you opened fire, so if you were in a tank, having a pubbie gunner was almost always a problem since every single one of them constantly fired at nothing and especially passing jets and choppers, bringing you all kinds of unwanted attention and swift death

As if people cared about any of the battles in WWI. I donít think the battles the maps were based on had much if anything to do with the overall impression of BF5.

Yeah, making a good map has precious little to do with how historically significant the backdrop is. No-one would have been any more impressed with the inclusion of the battle of the bulge or iwo jima or el alamein or whatever if the map blew chunks anyway

If anything it should be easier to make a good map in terms of pure gameplay if people have no preconceived notions about the location. Narvik sucked because of awful map design by DICE, not because it was a battle that almost no-one had heard about

Played my first few rounds of bf4 in forever and it's still as easy as it was in 1999 or whenever it was new

Was surprised to see that I had the QBU-88 equipped for all the classes, but it is still a beast for every range and using it was like coming home. Hope the DMRs in nubf feel half as good, because none in bf5 really did.

The two shot kill SLRs in bf5, like the selbie and ZH are really powerful but you can't spam them at long distances like you can my special bullpuppy boy

Anyone still playing cs obviously suffers from severe dementia and should be exploited as such

actually CS has been the best shooter series on the market since 1.1 and has produced some of the finest pixel hunters to ruin games for everyone else for more than two decades now

I did some googling and the first date i can find for the weapons packs is about five months after release, so a whole lot earlier than i thought

Did CS Source die or become the standard? When I quit it was still very different in some ways

Source was pretty half-baked and never really took off, so professional play mostly continued in 1.6 until the eventual release of cs:go dragged the pro scene kicking and screaming into the present day. CSGO also finally introduced built in matchmaking so it was really a no-brainer for everyone else to make the switch too

Also I'm lol'ing at all the "look at my amazing K/D" posts and you know it's probably because they were in an attack chopper all game

It's funny how one can tell that from the K/D alone in most cases.

battlefield has exceptionally few good players and some of us are just ok at shootmans

I actually haven't been in a flying vehicle since 2016 but now that you mention it, maybe i ought to dust off my joystick and see if I still know how to fly the jets and littlebird

Dunno how you all find these games so easy
~ Nearly 60 hours in Bad Company 2 and then like 2 dozen hours across 3, 4, and 1 and

Because we're nolife losers with like 600 hours per game instead of 60

I'm also broken brained enough to probably have close to something like 10k hours in various cs games over the last decade and a half, so you learn a thing or two about fine muscle coordination and fps best practices

There's occasionally 300 ping aimgods with names like □□□□□□□□□ in bf5, but generally speaking the casual and mostly dead nature of the games keeps most of the super obvious cheaters away. But I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of bfv cheats will work with bf6 with only minor modifications and we'll see quite a few hackers post release for however long the game is hot poo poo

That's some really good flying. Actually tried a jet for the first time in forever yesterday and it did not go like that video lol

I really miss my old logitech extreme 3d pro stick, because trying to fly with a hotas in a bf game is both incredibly overkill, and really unintuitive when half the buttons are on a throttle component that you really don't want to use for bf jet speed control

Maybe I just gotta suck it up and finally learn to learn how to fly m/kb for bf6 but bleurgh my principles, I'd think I'd rather just not fly

e: got a video from back in the day where i put up a similar kpm but with the rocket pods instead of the jdam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTK7Ja7gY-U, strange to see how much freelook I used instead of third person

Headshot challenges are very easy with all guns. Just flank some snipers, then get them from behind, they don't even move.

Idk, I really struggled with the "10 objective kill headshots in one life or 20 objective headshots in one round" with the SLRs and I'm not exactly awful at headshots. Some of those final challenges were hard as h*ck

repairing from inside the tank

Okay but BF4 and BF3 were both even worse in this regard, though. You didn't need to actively repair from inside or even outside the tank since they auto regen'd health just like infantry does

People won't give up medpacks because they're great for self heals when you're doing anti-infantry fighting. Unless the gadgets are insanely good I'll probably run a medpack with every setup that isn't specifically vehicle or anti-vehicle focused.

Destroying vehicles as infantry sounds a lot like someone elses problem imo

Planetside 2 could have been a huge hit if they hadn't dumbed down the gameplay from Planetside 1 and then completely stuffed it full of pay-to-win content.

I liked ps2 but I don't think it could have been a hit with even the best gameplay design decisions possible, given the parameters required in a planetside gsme. Server tech in 2012 was nowhere good enough to support the kind lf fps gameplay and player count they went for- I'm not even sure if we're there yet today.
