Now that all of the videogame hating jaded trolls have moved onto Elden Ring, maybe we can have a decent thread. What are your:>Hopes>Predictions>Concerns>Nightmares>Thoughts
Battlefield? More like BattleSNEED!!!!!!!!!!! GET OWNED RETARD
I hope it's BF4 but better
codfag here, why should I play your shitty game?
>>559083674Because it's literally CoD but better.
Predictions is that it's severe cringe shit. If they're advertising memes from past games in their trailers you know it's going to be just as bad as them trying to shove tranny shit down your throat. Gonna be bad and you retards take the bait every fucking game.
>>559083674Because battlefield is better than cod in literally everything. Play a Bf game and fucking educate yourself zoomer
>>559083830Settle down, infant. We're running out of diapers for pants pissers like you.
>>559083830No fun allowed!!!Battlefield has always been about the sandbox gameplay which a lot is not possible in bf1 and BFV. This is literally a return to form and what tranny shit are you referring to?
Is this using the same frostbite engine as all the nu battlefront?I fucking hate those
>>559084069All of them use the frostbite engine, anon.
>>559083674i play cod as well, but prefer battlefield due to its larger maps, squad based gameplay, superior projectile based gunplay, larger maps with more room to move and strategize, vehicles are kino, way more players. The games have far more longevity for me.
The Antarctic map is around the same size as cods verdansk mapThey will almost certainly be cut up into smaller maps for the snoystation 4I predict at least 17 maps on launch (7 real maps, 10 cut up maps)
>>559084069why? frostbite is one of the best looking and feeling engines out there, its not like same engine = same gameplay.
>>559083830>"how do you do fellow gamers"vs>"how do you do fellow journos and activists"I'll gladly take the former.There's a good chance they will feel confident, like now that they got the gamers, they can go wild with RMT, but we'll see.
>>559084069They've been using Frostbite since Bad Company 2.
>>559083534Looking forward to actually seeing gameplay on sunday, that will make or break it. Setting is great so far and I think specialists wont be as much of a problem as people make out. I also actually like customization which I dont have a problem with. The paid battlepasses are only for cosmetics and everyone gets future maps and weapons for free so this is a good thing imo. We'll see how it plays out.
Shit dude, I've been jumping my memory with BF4 and all I really want is focused maps.The one with the giant satellite dish and the one where D is a parking garage ruined my morning, they're get-shot-in-the-back simulators. And not in the usual "lol so chaotic" way, I mean regularly getting fucked from the edges of the map by one of 20 lone wolf shitkickers taking advantage of the fact that the maps are too wide, too occluded, and too polluted with props to see an enemy soldier with your own eyes unless you stand still and wait for movement. That might fly in Arma where its the same for all sides but in BF4 every other cunt has an autospotting gadget that makes them god while you're trying to discern 5 rocks and 3 stumps through a lensflare at 200m.
>>559084361If anything, this push to get back on the good side of gaymers is an opportunity to show them that yes, we do want this type of shit with 2042 and no, we don't want faggoty feminist jewery shit like with V.As long as they keep their hands clean all the way up until launch with not adding any twitter garbage to the game, I'm ready to play what they've brought to the table this time around.
>Hopesvietnam expansion>Predictionsno vietnam expansion, GAAS seasons>Concernsa battle royale mode that eats up all post-launch support/development>Nightmarespiecemeal map/gamemode microtransactions>ThoughtsI'm honestly stoked to hell to play a battlefield game on launch again, for one reason or another I haven't been able to do that since 3 ;_;
>>559084778They said there isn't going to be a Faggle Royale mode.
>>559083534The game is going to be shit, just like all post-BF4 games. Face it, BF4 was the last good one.
Haven't played a BF game since BC2...The gunplay there was abhorrent, since it was a console port - a medic with M60 (lol) was more effective at range than a sniper, because only sniper was affected by the bullet drop, velocity etc.What's the gunplay in the newer games and what are the chances they will go for sim-like model, kinda like Arma or Tarkov do?
>>559084939>>559085013>OUR MAP IS SUPRER BIG>BIGGER THAN PUBG'S MAP>I WONDER WHAT GAME MODE COULD BE PLAYED ON THIS MAP THAT WE SPECIFICALLY COMPARED TO A BR GAME'S MAPCope
>>559084778>a battle royale mode that eats up all post-launch support/developmentIsn't BR passé now?
>>559085013I mean they spent a better part of an entire year developing the Battle Royale mode for V post launch and look how that turned out for them. Zero (0) people played it. They learned their lesson.
>>559085103They're all shit. See you in October when we're both playing
>>559085285hmm maybe a battlefield match of conquest or breakthrough with 128 players? like they've said it is?
>>559083534Battlefield 3142funnot funnone, my expectations can't go lowersneed
>>559083674You don't deserve to, fuck off
>>559085361Nuh-uh. BF3 and BF4 were fun, or at least the multiplayer was fun.
>>559085285>urr I've never play a classic contest hueg ass map where the only means of transport is by a vehicle, because on foot, it would take you the whole game to get anywhere
>>559083534The designers once again are proudly proclaiming that they have no idea how or why series mainstay mechanics work.It will not be good.
>>559085103BF4 launched as a buggy unbalanced mess and was left an unbalanced mess. 1, hell even Hardline were better than 4
>>559085013>>559085285EA is making a new f2p battle royal game and they don’t want it to compete with battlefield
>>559085352>they learned their lessonThis is just a comedy at this point>>559085391>>559085649>128 players is going to fill a signifgantly larger map than 100 players on a smaller map (pubg)>>559085528>5k hours in BF2, PR, SQUAD, and ARMA >what do you know lmaooookys
>>559085512cue the boomers posting a 1000 word essay on why 3 was the death of the series and everything good about it
>>559083620I really don't get the love for BF4. I've played every battlefield since 2 and BF4 was easily my least favorite. Every server was full of people running to the outskirts of the map and sniping. Doing nothing to help their team. I remember back to back matches one day where the teams were 60% snipers. I don't know how anyone would find that fun. That said I really enjoyed the building destruction.
>>559085802What games do you play?
>>559084278Is there a 64-player layout for all maps?
I don't have any faith in DICE
>>559085976the last gen versions are going to be 64-player only so technically yesbut I think it remains to be seen whether 64 player versions of 128 player modes will be on current gen and PC
>>559085802That's why maps have capture points. Why do you keep comparing it to BR games? There is no BR in BF2042.
>>559083620Its literally in the name Battlefield 4-2
>>559085976Yes for the old consoles. 64 players is the max for those toasters.
>>559085896You're not wrong, 4 is the most overrated game in the franchise. Is padded with so much bloated bullshit that has no counterplay or feels awful to die to
>>559085896The only time I've ever enjoyed BF was in BF3, Metro, Constantly reviving my squad in the cramped as fuck hallways on defense. The absolute adrenaline that followed after reviving the same bastard 5 times in a row on top of reviving 3 other people until the shooting finally started to die down as we somehow pushed them back was never matched again.Say what you will about Battlefield and it's large maps, but to me, it's the close quarters maps that really fucking shines.
>>5590862144+2 = Battlefield Si... Oh my god
>>559085941whatever it is, prolly for gays
>>559084763All maymays aside, the probability that it will be any good is extremely low. The development team are the same people who made V, so at BEST you'll get a cod clone but with a battlefield skin, since they are seemingly insistent on copying warzone at this point. I know that trailers mean shit, but just from a thematic messaging point of view, you can clearly tell they are fucking desperate to re-create bf4, but now its bf4 and a 1/2.
>>559083534I hope progression isn't garbage like BF4 but it probably will because battle passes meaning you need to treat this like your second job if you want to finish it every 3 months.
>>559086121Because i am telling you that the most profitable game mode in modern gaming is not going to be excluded from any EA title that can jam it in. IF not in its raw format; in a slightly different form (hence EA announcing two new game types focused on SQUAD BASED GAMEPLAY). Wonder what that could be.
>>559086320I wonder if there's going to be a map that will cater towards the meat grinder apes? So far they've only shown off how big the maps are
>>559083534I'm still not happy about classes being replaced, i wasn't posting in these threads for the sake of shitposting.I just want classes back.
>>559086541Why did they stop making meat grinder maps? Oh. I forgot, the devs are severely lacking testosterone now. What a shame.
>>559086582Classes are still a thing retardhttps://youtu.be/YN1wwnN0CF0?t=437
>>559086415That's already a gargantuan step up from Battlefield V.
>>559083534Just gimmie BF4 but with non shit maps, and Gunsmith level weapon customization and I will suck off Andrew Wilson
>>559086582>be class D>suddenly don't know how to use a shotgun
>>559086671>testosteroneYou seem insecure as fuck little incel
>>559083534>overwatch heroesI’ll pass, thanks
>>559086582For me the universal primary guns and the on-the-fly customization are concerning.
>>559086249>You're not wrong, 4 is the most overrated game in the franchise.No it's just the only good Frostbite one.
>>559086854>getting triggered by the word testosteroneGo back to twitter, bitch.
>>559086775Well yes, you aren't wrong.
>>559086415>The development team are the same people who made Vincorrect, a lot of the lead designers responsible for the pozzed shit were fired
>>559086804Damn anon, Andrew AND Wilson?
>>559086743No, they're not. The old classes are just categories for sorting the specialists.>>559086852Cool have fun with ARs&Snipersfield.
>>559083820>>559083902i love that the irony is lost on nu-BF fans that the series has been CoD on a larger scale since BC2
>>559087003>triggeredAww, little baby learned a big boy word!Trump lost nazi :)
>>559087096By fired you mean given a fat ass severence paycheck and then """fired"""?
>>559086503What is apex legends? There's no single player either. Firestorm was shit. Not hard to believe BR is not in BF2042. Every YouTuber who saw their private event has drilled in the fact there will NOT be a BR.The new modes are rumoured to be similar to Tarkov.
>>559086671yeah you would like grinding some meat wouldnt ya you faggot zoomie. metro maps are the scourge of bf
>>559087127Yes, each class has their own specialists. They are still classes. You claimed there was no classes, which there are classes. Its better than any system previously.
>>559087203If you're bored and baiting for replied, you can easily get more in an Elden Ring thread, anon.
>>559087295The concern is that it's transitioning from infantry game to hero shooter
>>559087231ok? they arent in the development team anymore was my point.
>>559087295That was my first post and if your entire argument is that the names are still in use therefore it's the same then you are a fucking retard.
Quick! List developers that made a good game after releasing two/three dumpster fires.
>>559087290You got domed every time you ran into the train tunnel didn't you.
The specialists thing sounds like dog shit. It's going to be 50% women and they're given the fun stuff so you're forced to either play as Jerry with +5% bullet damage or Generica with a scout helicopter 3d printer.
>>559087434Elder Scrolls with Oblivion.
>>559083534>hopesmake rocket launchers great again. I want to be able to kill a camper from a football field awaystationary weapons too. They were the best part of BF1 but they were totally useless in BFV.
>>559084047>Battlefield has always been about the sandbox gameplayAnd while BFV and Bf2042 trailers have tried to make this into a trailer, the actual games had mechanics that killed those sandbox elementsIt's just pure shilling
>>559087383everyone still has access to the same kind of tools its just that the tools are bound to a specialist, even calling them a "hero" is disingenuous imo, they are just normal characters with the same amount of health with access to the same guns. It's like if you switch your equipment in BF4 it would switch the look of your character.
>>559087417It is doing the same thing but better than in previous games. You are like an old republican that does not like things changing to make the world a better placeGo suck on an egg>>559087383How so? Cause people have abilities that make the game better?>>559087340I dont play souls games and I do not care for them
Oh look another shitty battlefield
>>559087635I honestly can't tell if you're a shill or just baiting.
>>559087434bf5 was the only dumpster fire, what are you talking about?
>>559087556Can you give any examples of where BFV had mechanics that killed sandbox elements? Cause I have a list that shows it is better than any previous titles sandbox wise. I'll wait for your response :)
>>559087383the specialists will each have one piece of equipment from my understanding, maybe something like perks similar to earlier games
>>559086249everything has a counter actuallyit's just that you have to have people you know to play with because you will never get randoms using things like a SOFLAM or MAV properly or at all
>>559087451no, i top score with a 3+ kd on every map i play including metro or lockers, its still gay af and boring
>>559087726BF1 was pretty crap honestly.
>>559083534From the Cinematic: All the good guys die, all the heavy weight guys sink and die, get crushed, in general stand there and can't aim like stormtroopers. The squirrelly lightweight guy just flies around. Probably same old netcode as battlefield games have always had, same old making players play the bad guys and the good guys and auto team balance crap to have to put up with. Same old no single player story or anything. The skyscrapers don't look like they are real. They focus all about the dragon of using four wheelers to kill helicopters and performing the jet bazooka fly away maneuver, probably fun for a month or a few and then boring like always. The pre-orders are same old scam with skins and junk we don't need. The hovercrafts on the ice/snow level looked terrible, like somebody was really bad at making the hovercrafts and they said oh well. The cities look super chinese and there are even chinese letters seen on them so we hate their extremely watered down structures and everything. Basically it reeks of too much china.
>>559087731most people on here didn't play battlefield v just because it had women in it, game's fun you're not crazy anon
>>559083674stay in your shitty containment game PLEASE
>>559083620spbp. i need an updated BF4 pronto. BF4 was by far the best battlefield
>>559087726some 3/4 purists think that BF1 was garbage because it was too different. It's funny because they are very much in the minority and everybody else thinks it's one of the best ones
>>559084778>>Predictions>>GAAS seasonserr, it was already confirmed
>>559086743>Classes are still a thing retardNo, having access to every gun is not the same thing.Classes have always been defined in this matter from the very start of this franchise, each class has their own specific set of weapons.Stop dancing around the issue like you don't know what's blatantly obvious in what I'm saying.Having access to every weapon means classes no longer exist, they've been replaced.You don't pick scout/recon and then load out with an LMG do you? or switch weapons on the fly to other weapons that would be traditionally allocated to other classes.Stop acting like this isn't a complete subversion of the franchise.It's not a good move and I'm not liking that I'm not seeing push back from people about it.
>>559085896holy fuck. I just remembered why I quit bf4. you're 100% correct
>>559083534Seems it may actually be good as they've given up on the woke shit, so they may actually make a good game
>>559087749They really need to be more clear how specialists are customizable. Apparently nobody knows for sure whether your second gadget slot will be fixed to your specialist, limited by class, or not class locked at all, because DICE won't say and they changed tracks sometime in development.
>>559084278The cope of BF fags is astounding. They will be given less content and convince themselves otherwise. You’re think they learned after V but no
>>559088039it all china
>>559087383>game is called BATTLEFIELD>>from infantry gameretard
>>559087946I will say that I liked BF1 more than 4, but only slightly less than 3.I will proceed to not elaborate.
>>559083674You shouldn’t. Go back to cod
>>559088104>they've given up on the woke shit,
I'm just sad there still isn't a game set in modern day Africa.>UN troops >rebels>loyalists>crazy warlords with hyena pets>hinds, shitload of technicals, old soviet tanks>desert, jungle, urban, savanna environments>campaign about operating in poacher territory or against pirates So much failed potential.
>>559088374that's too problematic and normalfaggots wouldn't buy it
>>559088048I do agree losing some of the diversity is concerning but there have been universal guns among the classes before, in BC2 they had shotguns on every class right?
>>559083534How do you guys think the bots will be? They were kind of hit or miss in pic related depending on the game mode, but now it’s obviously on a much bigger scale
Why are shooter devs so retarded? Having half of the earth's population be refugees makes no sense whatsoever
>>559088430all class weapons only became a thing in bc2, which was the beginning of the cancer
>>559088430>I do agree losing some of the diversity is concerningNever utter those words here ever again.
For a long time i just wanted bf bc2 destruction. Thats really all i want bfbc2, updated(not cutting endge graphics as destructions more important, more players check, more gadjets check, no bullshit unlocks or non map dlc just let me play how i want not knife 20 soldiers with a bayonet accross the map in a match. And poor balancing vehichles need a lot of health and should be game changers. Both sides get them thats the balance. I main engiee so i love that stuff . I doubt ill be buying it though as the last 2 bf were dogshit. This is a wait and see.
>>559088495The entire population of earth right now are refugees. Humans aren't bound by chains. We will never be truly safe. We will never be truly home.

>>559088542>imagine trying to command someone on the internetI can see your gay red hat from here anon
>>559083534>Women running around the battlefield AGAINwhy are they fucking doing this.IT BREAKS THE IMMERSION.
>>559088418How is it problematic? Normies will buy anything as long as it's got proper marketing
>>559088365>western armies today insist on including womyn>going as far as lowering requirements just to get womyn in>game in 2042 has womyn in itwoke or just reflecting reality?
>>559088905I don't wear hats.
>>559088430>but there have been universal guns among the classes beforeI'm aware of that, and i wouldn't be bothered by that.It's more the actual lack of class tied weapons, it devalues the actual importance of the class's role and makes them game essentially not battlefield anymore.It's indistinguishable from COD at this point if this is the direction their committing to.This is the kind of move that will destroy Battlefield forever in my eyes.There's no going back if this decision becomes final.
>>559088048>I'm not liking that I'm not seeing push back from people about itI've seen some on Twitter and on the game's newly created subredditThere's still a chance though as DICE did backtrack on often discussed gameplay stuff like the TTK in BF1 or attrition in BFV before release
>>559087096what does pozzed mean?
>>559089026anything then a bunch of 56% mutt niggers without gender or genitalia feeding purely on bugmilkshakes in 2042 is straight up unrealistic
>>559089161at least before they tried to pretend it wasn't codnow with this system (among other things) it's literally dice going "we're a cod knock off"
>>559083534>HopesBetter than V, the change to specialists as an obvious modernized money generating tactic for selling lootboxes has not irreversibly damaged a core gameplay element>PredictionsIt will be better than V but still irritate the fuck out of me with some things>ConcernsBugs out the ass that don’t get fixed>NightmaresThe opposite of my hopes. It manages to be worse than V>ThoughtsNice to see battlefield return back to a thematically cohesive reveal trailer. V started off on the wrong foot and death spiraled from there. The aligned art direction really makes me hope that they didn’t stop learning from their mistakes with the reveal trailers
>>559088430In BF4 DMRs, carbines, and shotguns were all multiclass. However, ARs, SMGs, LMGs, and snipers were all locked to their respective class.DMRs and carbines were functionally inferior alternatives to class-locked snipers and ARs. Shotguns are incredibly restricting by their nature and therefore not chosen very often outside of two or three maps.In 2042 anyone can use anything at any time. It's extremely different.
>>559083620That looks like what they’re going for. I think to make up for the disaster that was BFV, they’re doing this to placate us and win us back. I don’t mind. BFV is still kinda fun though. Probably the worst Battlefield game and I still enjoy it.
>>559083534>last 4 games were garbage>"maybe it will be good this time!"
>>559089428N O TP O L I T I C A L
>>559089213Socially aware, or at least a heavy handed attempt at social awareness.
>>559089161the constraints did make it feel more distinct and to me thats what set it apart as well but I'm sure for years there's been>"I WANT AN LMG AND A MEDPACK RRRREEEEEEE"
>>559089428Browsing other websites and posting the sewage you find on 4chan issues!!!Fuck off nigger.
>>559089396Same exact situation as me anon. V is the worst battlefield I’ve played and yet I still had fun. As long as 2042 is better, it’s a win in my book. Anything beyond that is a sweet, sweet bonus

>>559090272Red Orchestra 2
>>559090272That’s a good question. I think 4 is the most popular, but I think it can be hard to get into because progression is so slow. I think Battlefield 1 is probably an easier starting place.
>>559090272ignore the series
>>559090215>allowing women into the military in the future isn't wokeYes it is. Everybody knows women can't outperform men physically. It's completely political and even the army would rather have people killed than look bad on twitter.

>>559090272You can get 2142 and play it right now for free on pc
>>559090501But it’s not video game developers that make that decision. The military has made that decision and reflecting reality is not “woke shit”
>>559090532link me a torrent thenreclamation removed their free download of it a while back
>>5590904815 is the most played, followed by 1 and then 4. 1 is probably the most beginner friendly, too.
>>559083534>not pc exclusiveit's not even truly battlefield
>>559084714Just played Rogue Transmission and it is the dumbest fucking map.The border of the map is lower than the objectives/center but still has tons of groundcover and instant access to a hill that they can pop over, so the only way to intercept campers is to dick around in the margins yourself, or to take up a high spot on a landmark and get instantly countersniped by half the map. It's like one big circuit designed to enable bush-squatting cuckoldry and turn objectives into fuckbarrels.What's insane about most BF4 maps is that they're so dispersed for vehicles, that the only way infantry can control them is to roll 90% snipers/DMRs and be the first to camp the favorable positions, and then the game really doesn't budge for 600 tickets because you can't really counterplay this. By the time you're done scanning the horizon for tiny heads, 8 sniper rifles are half-emptied at you, and flanking is a steep uphill battle because of spotting tech that persists even into hardcore (and the ridiculous distance required to do even attempt it quietly).Even the single high achieving squad on each team back-capping A/E just has all the snipers turn around and swiss them easily once the flag is capped and it becomes a waste of time to corner-prone.It's amazing how hit-or-miss the map design is, because for every two nonsensical snipefests, you get a gem like Lumphini Garden that has a real flow to it and allows almost every class to fairly trade with each other. Even getting steamrolled in points on that one still leads to a ton of fun firefights, and that's really all any map should try to achieve.

>>559090481>4 is hard to get into because slow progression I like this about the class primary weapons, it makes you come to grips with each before you move on to the next.It's fucking dumb for class gadgets, you'll basically just be a choice of gun for your first dozen matches. Recon in particular is basically empty handed until you spend a ton of time sitting on your hands and sniping points out of the enemy team.
>>559091084i tend to agree, some maps in bf4 just make me want to alt-f4 or at least change servers. The amount of dead space and lack of movement paths for infantry is a killer, especially against vehicles. Rogue Transmission, Golmud Railway, Silk Road, most of the naval strike maps are all terrible, theres no where to move if you're infantry. If I dont get a vehicle on these maps it's an absolute chore to play.
Yeah the fact that everyone's already hyped about consooming this game means I'm fighting a losing battle about the importance of classes.Unless i don't get a BF2 replacement soon i think i might just call it quits on this hobby.It's worse for me because i live in Australia, therefore i have to rely on the bigger games to even get matches in my country otherwise the ping will just be fucked.
>>559091745play squad then.
>>559091745wait for operation: harsh doorstop
>>559091846Squad sucks now

>>559091872>operation: harsh doorstopWhere is this supposed to be in terms of COD <---> Project Reality?I'm guessing right around Rising Storm 2.
>>559092146they want it to be like a free version of squad
>>559083534>HopeIt manages to feel like 4 but with refined mechanics and balance>PredictionsIt will launch with not a lot of content but ok gameplay>ConcernThe game launches with lots of bugs and piss poor optimization>NightmareThey come with a BR mode the next year, its successful and effectively kills previous game modes and traditional BF as a whole forever>ThoughtsStill not feeling it with the trailer, it was certainly better than V's mess but I am reserving judgement for the gameplay video
>>559083620Pretty much.Increase time-to-kill (compared to 4), nerf vehicles (partially by buffing gadgets/explosives).Have we gotten any confirmation that we can still play generic player-made (or clone) soldiers instead of hero-shooter specialist shits?
>>559085320I mean yes but they could have added BR into the game when BR was popular and now the fad has passed but still remains in the game.
>>5590902724 or 1.
>>559089962yeah that's why it was a total fucking failure. the aesthetics were total steampunk fantasy but the gameplay brought back shit that catered to super old fans that have all moved on to squad and arma. it was so fuckin weird. then when people complained they dismissed it thinking they were racist nazis or whatever the fuck.
>>559091745I hate being shoehorned into a nation-based rainbow of diversity when it comes to the new specialists, but I doubt the loss of classes will matter that much, ultimately.Supports existed to dispense ammo and generally got fucked otherwise in 4 (and 1, unless you got ridiculous amounts of dopamine from tickling planes until they shat death on you). Recon is generally for shitters and/or that one guy who actually spots half the enemy team for your side. Medic/Assault is for winning. Engineers are for comedic relief while your vehicles fight the enemy vehicles (if they don't sit halfway across the map to farm infantry kills).The biggest issue with unspecialized "specialists" is that too many people will run flavor-of-the-month/overtuned guns with the most effective kit tools (medkits/defribrillators, 99% likely), but that won't be a big difference from an excessive number of old-fashioned Assaults sucking off the nearest ammoslut Support for most matches.
>>559083674you can drive vehicles here, you can just settle in "infantry only" maps/game modes, since it's more like COD gameplay thereliterally just watch the reveal, we welcome you anyways here in the battlefield
>>559093427Don’t forget Paul McCartney’s 2013 album “New” for your schizoid collage
I wanted future shit, not bf 4.5Hover tanks, walker gear, drones, exo skeletons, etc. but got just cause 4
The hero shit is DICE doubling down on the specialist shit that was already dumb in the context of the greater game. So I literally couldn't give a shit. You literally couldn't pay me to feign interest.
>>559094335You will get that eventually but they had to go back to modern for now. It's a safe seller after 2 historic games in a row
>>559088365If they're wearing proper gear and behaving like actual soldiers I'm okay with it if they are an appropriate minority. If they wear feminine clothing/out of place stuff and make up 50% of the models that is not okay.
>>559094465are you confused? specialists are a new feature
I don't get the specialist thing.Is it just a pre-made character with a special loadout or how does it work?
>>559094335Call of Duty tried that. Based on the reaction they got, I doubt anyone will try it for some time. It would be objectively better in a Battlefield game though.
>>559094465Honestly, the hero system shit is DICE aping Rainbow Six. And that'll work out about as well as when they tried to ape CoD with BF4's story. They fucking suck at it and fail to understand why things work. But they push them in anyway. It's like the video of an orangutan with the tools. It understands the motions but it doesn't understand how or why.
>>559094713No. Specialist kits were something introduced with BF1 where you got a super-powered class archetype with unique bullshit and enhanced armor.
>>559083674>codfag here, why should I play your shitty game?Because DICE made it for you with specialists.
>>559094335Maybe they do good an do DLC or the next game as a bridge to 2142. I already got hachimoto vibes from the hovercrat in antarctica and the tuktuk. I want a goliath analog.
>>559094746Best-case scenario, they're just preset loadouts with a special voice and skin/model.Worst-case, they're basically more flexible "classes"— whatever gun, whatever secondary gadget, but a set "trait"/"skill" and primary gadget, but strapped to a wishy-washy version of a "hero-shooter" character instead of a generic soldier model/voice with options for each of said skills/traits and primary gadgets.
>>559094749Black ops 3 was kino
>>559093397>The biggest issue with unspecialized "specialists" is that too many people will run flavor-of-the-month/overtuned guns with the most effective kit tools (medkits/defribrillators, 99% likely)Biggest issue may be an understatement on that one, i just don't know how people can justify chipping away at core elements of the franchise like this over time.That's how franchises become indistinguishable.
>>559089629>unoptimizedBut battlefield games in general are all very well optimised?
>just cause 4 was a flop>dude let's copy it lmao

Or not, discussions before release are only slightly less retarded than preordering an AAA game.
>>559096189Name 3 (three) games with twisters that affect gameplay
>>559089568Fuck those people. Gadgets and guns should be locked to classes and that's it, end of discussion. You open up that stuff and within a week you have a go-to meta setup for killing people that everyone uses and no one has any reason to play support. You ever played Planetside 2? That game directly ripped off Battlefield classes and weapon setups (including damage per shot and falloff, even) except they also let everyone carry healing kits. End result: LITERALLY EVERYONE CARRIES AN LMG AND MEDPACKSGod, 2042 is gonna be fucking garbage.

Battlefield 1 was casualised garbage for fortnite niggers
I do hope that the third mode that is completely redacted on their webpage is literal fucking TITAN MODE from 2142. Also, my biggest fucking concern is progression and monetization. I give the literal amount of zero fucks about cosmetics; just as long as they dont keep specialists or other gameplay-affecting stuff under a paywall that will be fine for me. I'd be fucking pissed if whales had tactical advantage over me. Again, zero fucks about cosmetics, since engravings give no tactical advantage whatsoever.

I'm sure others have already said it, but I'm not reading through the whole thread. Specialist are a terrible fucking idea and instead of just doing their own game they are trying to copy all these other "successful" shooters. Plus its an easy way for them to monetize the game by locking new specialists behind the battlepass. This shit is fucking cancer and it is already reminding me of the most recent Battlefront. Nobody wants some stupid fucking hero shooter in a battlefield setting, I just want to play a fucking grunt, I just want to play Assualt/Medic/Engineer/Recon. Why can't we have nice things anymore, why is everything turning to ash? The only thing left is to piss and moan loudly and at every opportunity. I am sick of this gay shit.
>>559088374Africa is the most untapped location for any FPS map in any single game. Such a fucking cool location.I’m certain that there’s going to be map(s) based there in future BF2042 updates.

I really hate how games are being marketed now, they used to use in-game footage to and it looked great since that's how it will look and play if you buy it.Now it's all "in-engine" or "game-engine footage" which means nothing and gives you no clue as to how it will look or play when you buy itIdiots get all hyped up for cinematic trailers then complain when it doesn't actually look like that

>>55909672140 dollars is service 70 dollars is art
>>559084939at launch, there isn't going to be a Battle Royale mode at launch.Why is it that every single time someone complains about BR, I keep thinking that it's some fucking loser with 0 friends. Just a fucking fat fuck living in his fucking mom's basement who has 0 fucking interactions with other people. I've been playing Warzone now for over a year, and playing it alone isn't fun, but when you play it with friends, it's amazing. You need to coordinate with your friends and when you get a win together, that shit feels great.
I've always wondered why Battlefield still bothers with single player.
>every map name is a single wordEven map names aren't safe. Remember when names like 'Epicenter' and 'Propaganda' were uncommon?
>>559101636>hurr it's fun with friendsbitch, anything is fun with friends, even watching paint drykill yourself my man
I hope they keep some of the movement mechanics and fortification system from BFV
>>559089962fuck yeah dude, there is no better feeling than crouch spamming with a random and working together in a vehicle or flanking together. Things like seeing 2 guys flanking instead of going into the meat grinder will get others to follow and then suddenly you have the point and in bf4 everyone was super frugal with ammo and medpacks. Heli pilots could be your best friends or worst nightmare and being saved by a friendly tank in a firefight is an experience better than any movie.
>>5590902724,1,bc2 or just pick 2 or 3 they don't really rely on each other that much. Play the newer ones if u wanna get a feel for how it is or play the older ones if you want to see how its changed over the years.

>>559092692>nerf vehicles>bf4>the only bf with 3 where inf is king>nerf vehicles morewhat?
>>559102108honestly, yeah. Despite the political bullshit the core mechanics weren't too bad and were sometimes pretty fun. Being able to climb higher walls added cool flanking routes and the fortifications could be cool like mg nests and better cover. I hope they buff fortifications tho because they do take time and should be rewarded more than just existing as an advantage.
>>559096952>for freewarzoom doesn't count

Aight guys. is long-range sniping fine, if you're still spotting, marking targets, and countersniping? Or is anything past 200m still considered "useless" to yall?
>>559104461if you're going to be a useless long range recon then at least use a mav or place down a soflamthe only good recon is an aggressive recon
>>559104461Do we even know if spotting is a thing in 6?
>>559083534Should be great desu but the 2 most recent titles have left a horrendous taste in mouth.
>>559104560no reason to take it out, desu. units blend in with terrain as-is, so you need some way to make them stand out. even if its squad-only callouts, that'd be fine.>>559104551just started up BF4 thanks to the twitch giveaway, I've found a good amount of success using the soflam+beacon. press in for an aggressive, but out of the way, spawn point, the drop the soflam in a nice spot, and position myself further back to focus on callouts and enemy snipers
>>559083534The main thing I hate about battlefield is how shooting weapons feel. Bf3 and 4 were trash in that and I couldn't play more than 10 minutes and on top of that you can't fire your grenade launcher at a wall to make a hole in it. The last one I truly enjoyed and had shitton of hours in is BC2 on hard-core.Thankfully mw people are working on 2042 and will hopefully fix the gunplay. Then I'm all in

>>559083534So here's the thing.My fondest memory of Battlefield series is me playing Bad Company 2 multiplayer......as a SALT SNIPER. I bought me some chips, sit down and start eating with my left hand as I'm preparing to play. My hand gets covered in chips and salt, okay yeah? So then I get into the game, I pick Sniper class, and just find some hill to lay on. Then the waiting game begins. Having me left hand covered in chips and salt makes me very hesitant to move my character, cause then my keyboard will be all dirty. So I become very patient and sort of become...the real sniper! I had some of the best games that way.Do you think I'll be able to repeat that little trick in this game?
>>559083534this $100 arcade shooter still has microtrannysactions correct? dropped

>>559087809and thats the absolute worst part of battlefield, the assumed team work of a group of 32 randoms. it doesnt take 3-4 to operate a tank so it should take 3-4 people to take one down
>>559083534Not ro2, we need a game like rising storm 1 and 2 for consoles not cod:ea version doc boogaloo
>>559084778Since this is titled 'Battlefield 2042', there's still a chance that we might see a Battlefield VI(etnam).

>>559084632Customisable guns on the go with backpacks is cool, I wish it had gore and some mortally wounded revive stage, like arm blown off so you bleed out or can be revived with one arm missing so you can just use pistol, if you loose any legs it's a death, stuff like bullet deformation on hits

I'm looking for anything that is just at least close to not be casualized bullshit that's made for call of duty players who have microsecond attention spans and actually encourages team work that has AU/NZ servers.

>>559108075you too chang
The three features that will make or break this game for me are;>Cross-play — so I can play with my PC buddies>Cross-progression — so i can eventually switch back to PC when I can afford an actual PC>Mouse/Keyboard on console — since i'm used to PC, but I can't afford one that will run this, I picked up a Series S, yet I can't play with a gamepad for the life of me.Other than that, i'm optimistic about the game.
This was the first BF2 gameplay shown iirc. The missile flying through was the most impressive thing ever shown, instead of the usual solid box hitbox.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=som9LRRnuFw
Fuck DiceFuck TranniesFuck NiggersFuck Disabled Nigger TranniesFuck BF games set in WW2 that have no nazis or anything remotely "WW2" feelingFuck balance patches that make game objectively worseFuck shitty mapsFuck DLC trickleFuck dropped support after one yearFuck you OP
>>559108276>Cross-playonly if the aime assist isn't cod/enlisted level>Cross-progressionactually a good idea>Mouse/Keyboard on consolei don't think this will be a thing, consoloid are very salty about mkb
>>559091084> Lumphini Garden Is AIDs.
>>559108465The last console battlefield I played was BF3 back in 2012 or something, but I don't think their aim assist is as bad as something like Halo.With Modern Warfare 2019, I'd shit on console players and I'm not even particularly that good (I know SBMM was a thing, but I doubt that's the whole story).Again with the recent CoDs (MW, BO:CW, WarZone), they all had cross-play and mouse/keyboard on console, so it would be really weird if they didn't have it (even if they had some form of input based matchmaking for the console side just to shut up the "consoloids").
>>559089428For Dice to play this correctly they simply need not elaborate further on the cause. Fuck these faggots. 2142 the planet was becoming a frozen wasteland with fucking massive icewalls fucking things up.
>>559107759Will have to see what the limits of this system are going to be.
>>559108865I don't know man, I'm a pcfag that only did the beta of cod:mw and got tired of getting dinged half a map away by a no-recoil M4 consolefag.
>>559107483Not him but i played all of them except hardline and regret it. Car chases with no tanks sounds super fun.
>>559109486hardline wasn't bad per say, it's once again disconnected dev forcing memes and a narrative, a few technical problems and an blue ballingiirc hardline is when dedicated server became a nono they teased 2142 rather hard in the last 4 dlc, only to cuck with hardlineto some extent it's like NGE all over again, it's not the media per say, it's all the bullshit surrounding it that make it so divisivein the end, you do you anon, fuck anyone killing your fun.
>>559083534Specialists killed all my hype. I'll stay with BF4 and MW19
>>559109486same anonI played the beta(s) and had a blast, really regret not picking it up now
>>559108276>cross progressionDon’t make me laugh
>>559109773what's so different between grabbing a barret on the ground that osk and grabbing a class instead? maybe i'm retarded but it's the same thing in my eye?
>>559091084Rogue blows because the map is literall unbalanced, with the chinese side having a much harder time defending their back obj E than the russians do with their A point, making it statistically the worst balanced map in the gamelumphini is a meh map though for the same reasons you highlighted with rogue, the A flag train station/E flag building have LoS over massive portions of the map and encourage braindead camping behavior on what is supposed to be a very fast paced close quarters map. You can cover a majority of the area between b/c/d from the a flag as US and it is inevitable that a portion of each team is going to resort to mortars/ucavs from either building to farm kills on people running around in the middle of the map
>>559109486Car chases were great, but it was way too easy for some cunt camping with an RPG to completely ruin it.
>>559109832what's wrong with that?if I get to level 100 on xbox and want to switch over to PC at a later date, why should I have to grind all the way back there again?
>>559109739Hardline was a huge wasted opportunity for me, it didn't have strong differences between the two teams where this is exactly where they should've gone all in on that. It didn't really feel like playing cops vs robbers, just two of the same teams with different skins.
mystery mode is rumored to be a hub of all battlefield
>>559109859The fact that I want to play either as a nameless, faceless soldier or create my own to better identify with him, rather than have a fixed appearance, voice, personality and backstory. Also special abilities and gadgets limited to one per squad will cause people to fight over their 'mains'.
>>559110157What could it be?I doubt it's something like Titan Mode, since I feel that would fall under the 'All Out War' thing.
>>559110205They really should have disconnected the specialist ability/trait from the character model.Along with specialist just being a 'sub-class'.
https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/10/tech/electronic-arts-hack/index.htmlthe game is fucked. hacks will bypass any detection by working with source code.have fun.
>>559085756Why would they make a new BR when that's literally exactly what Apex Legends is for, you mouthbreathing faggot.
>>559110503did the hack include BF:2042? or just previous games?
>>559109960Hardline should not have been as fun as it was.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZrAYxWPN6cYea it was lower stakes than all out war. But the cops and robbers aspect was a good fit.When i was playing it, i thought it mostly missed out on a more tactical mode.
>>559109983Cross progression would be fantastic. What’s laughable is the idea that EA would allow anything like that instead of forcing you to buy and grind all over again
>>559107759>otherwise it would just be a game with 128 tanksDon't threaten me with a good time.
>>559110604frostbite engine as a whole
>>559083534>bots are backDay 1 purchase.Hate me, sneed me, dilate me, seethe me, cope me.I don't care.Day. One.Purchase.But not a pre-order.
>>559110157I literally suggested this like a year ago. I expect royalties paid to me.
>>559107480>comically attractive woman in war they should see the other 99%. Then again I'm totally into a 6/10 woman so the average strong military women are more than enough for me. Don't look into how promiscuous military women are in Battlefield
>>559110157what does that even mean
>>559110604They stole the source code of the entire Frostbite engine which is the game supposed to run on. Expect to have a Cheat Engine before the game is even released.
>>559084069Frostbite is well optimised and good-looking
>>559084069found the underage that thinks game engine == game
>>559110812If only we had servers where communities formed for people to play together and any cheaters were banned by admins or vote kicked when admins weren't around.
>>559110779don't know at all we will have to wait for leaks or more explanation
It looks nothing like the first one...where are the techs? The titans? It just looks like the semi-futuristic COD games but worse.
>>559110883>well optimised*Having flashbacks of Siege of Shanghai's skyscraper crashing the game for whole server*
>>559111131>BF1 Sinai Desert randomly crashing at 1% ticket left
So since they've made it so that any class can carry any gun, what are the odds that all you'll see is people running the exact same build a la warzone because they can't balance for shit and there is objectively an OP loadout to run?
>>559111101It's between BF4 and BF:2142Expect walkers near the end of the lifecycle.
>>559110779Hypothetically, a single interface that let's you search for and join servers on any BF game seamlessly so you could check the server browser and see there's a BF2 server running, a 2142 server running, a BF4 server running etc. and join whichever one you want without having to open and close multiple games. Maybe even the possibility of a server having a game rotation kind of like a map rotation. This does seem fanciful though because even if it's possible, it would still require like 500GB installed.
>>559083534>HopesIt’s BF4.5>PredictionsCan’t really say since we haven’t seen gameplay. Either way it seems they’re actually trying to sell to fans rather than snowflakes.>NighmaresSpecialist come off as totally unnecessary and all primaries being available to all classes is a little odd.>NightmaresThat the specialist aspect and every class having access to every primary means you get 50 clones of the same character with the same op gun every match.
>>559111249100%. Assault had the best guns in bf3/4 but that was balanced by the fact that they couldn't resupply themselves and had no anti vehicle utility which limited them to revive training or medpacks in inf heavy situations. But why would you ever use something like a pdw or carbine on an engineer class when you could be using an ar instead?
>>559089889How does anyone think Operation Metro is a good map when it's flaw reveals that it's easy to nade spam? therefore people have to write it in their servers rules not to nade spam or you'll get banned.It's objectively a terribly designed map.
>>559089797>2042 is 21 years awayfuck
>>559111614Yeah I doubt that's what it is, not that EA would even do that. It doesn't seem like that would be something they'd advertise as a new mode at all.
>>559111249The main reason why I like class based games is because each one is supposed to have clear strengths and weaknesses. This is such a stupid decision for 2042 it's hard to be optimistic about the game will turn out, it's like fucking up a race before you've even started running.
>>559110157Perhaps it's some sort of custom game thing. When the steam page was put up, it had the 'Level-Editor' tag (not community submitted ones), so I think it could be possible if we get some sort of Halo like Forge mode.
>>559111614hitman managed to have 3 games into one and the total size is kinda good
>>559111405So it's the worst of both games with some titanfall graple hooks.
>>559090272Battlefield 1 is the best Battlefield to date
>>559111810It's kind of funny that banning explosives is just as bad as full explosive spam. You need a little bit of explosives to be able to disrupt people's positions but there's basically zero way to actually enforce a "sportsmanlike" use of explosives.
>>559111249100%DICE is maximum retarded
>>559112051that was the most pleasant part about BF1, there was a lot of class/weapon combo that shined in a very limited setting.
>>559112054that category was removed, just like singleplayerit was a mess up
Do you guys think we will get leaks about the game with the frostbite source code hack that happened
>>559111614>This does seem fanciful though because even if it's possible, it would still require like 500GB installed.Not necessarily, if they take the Master Chief Collection route then you could choose which games you want installed and then filter matchmaking/server browser results to only have the game you've got installed. If 334, AKA 'the most incompetent people in gaming' can pull it off then I'm sure DICE can too.
>>559083534>HopesI know it's a meme, but I hope it's an evolution from BF4 and so far, that seems to be somewhat the case. I hope the TTK is similar to BF4 too since I think its the best TTK out of any BF. I hope the balance between ground and air is fairly good but historically, it hasnt been.>PredictionsChaotic as fuck, good gunplay and movement, weapon customization similar to MW but not as extensive, player skins that are OK at first but end up getting wackier and wackier as the battle passes progress, sub-textually political as opposed to full-blown political (like BFV), a relatively smooth launch this time>ConcernsThe specialists. Not because of how they look or because WoMyN, but because they have their own specific equipment and trait, and can use any category of weapon. My concern is that their is going to be a "best" specialist, and a "best" gun, so I hope that no OP meta ends up emerging where everyone is the same specialist with the same equipment and the same gun. That would throw balance out of the window, and would be fucking annoying to play against.>NightmaresConstant air rape from near-indestructible air vehicles. BF4 air rape is bad enough, and I don't know what kind of tech or upgrades the aircraft in 2042 are going to have, I just hope ground troops have a chance at taking them out
>>559113089vehicles have infinite ammo and countermeasures again going by the leaked screenshots so it's pretty obvious there's not going to be any balance regarding vehicles
>>559112632It could be, however it might be that they didn't intend to announce that just yet, along with the Cross-platform multiplayer tag (they have said they'll talk about that at a later date).
>>559083534>battle pass shitit's going to be disappointing as fuck, there won't be anything cool to actually earn because it's all kept behind a paywall and everyone will unlock things at the same time
>>559109486Yeah, you fucked up. You could give it a try on ea play but it doesn’t handle as cleanly as bf1 and v
>>559113207>vehicles have infinite ammo and countermeasures again going by the leaked screenshots so it's pretty obvious there's not going to be any balance regarding vehiclesinfinite ammo I'm not too bothered by, because it gets vehicles moving around. In BFV they just camp relatively near the ammo depot. Countermeasures I think are just dumb. Give the vehicle a weapon (rocket), a secondary weapon (MG) and a single countermeasure (flare), that's it.
>>559113430this makes no senseyou either give them limited ammo and countermeasures or you give them unlimited amounts because where would you resupply something otherwise?also bfv had a good idea with limited ammo, just bad execution (doesn't help there's no commander anymore to drop supply crates because dice is catering to retards)
>no weapon cooldowns>classes being useful and having an impact on game outcome>no battle pass shit>guns with unique sounds and styles so nothing feels/sounds the same due to "balance"i can only dream
Won't be buying as long as I'm forced to pick between Coldsteel the Shadowhog or FlowerSparkle McFemaleWoman the Trans-Abled Super Hacker or whatever to use a certain gadget/ability.
>>559083963go stab your poop smelling front hole, you pedo tranny
Ever noticed how the marketing is now centered around "Look how not TOTALLY retarded we are now! Buy our game!"And this is what should push us to spend over 60 bucks. After all that happened.Likefuck me DICEYou are not the only game in town anymore.
>>559113573Squad leaders drop supply crates. And V vehicle camping would be fixed by removing ammo from main spawns. Would make capture points more valuable and strategic imo.
>>559113971the points themselves have never had any value besides them possibly having vehiclesit's been like 20 years and nothing has changed
>>559114048They have value intrinsically as spawn points, especially when the maps are not perfectly symmetrical like in Hamada or that one giant desert map whos name i forget.
>>559114048BF4 has certain commander assets tied to certain flags.
>>559114179yeah i remembertoo bad having them be physically on the map like in 2 & 2142 was better from a gameplay standpoint as spec ops could destroy them
>>559114235I agree. I also think that having individual points being worth that much more has a large risk of creating a "rich get richer" snowball problem.
>>559114179BF3 Armored Kill had AC-130 (Gunship) Tied to a Flag
>>559114593that was fun as fuck, it was so OP but that's what made that game fun
>>559114675It literally ruined the expansion to the point that nobody ever played it again after a week.
>>559087541Stationary weapons were so so good
>>559114675it was fun, but i hated how it could only be summoned to that one specific flag
>>559084278god damn those last 5 maps are fucking huge
>>559115193they'll just all be filled with open flat plains where you're gonna get raped by vehicleslove those maps haha
>>559114981>filtered out "competitive" balance demanding fagsgood, plus on hardcore (the real way to play the game) it only took a few rockets to take it out>>559115046if i recall it was the mid flag, which meant that most of the time both teams were in a constant fight for it, it was pretty fun how intense it got
>>559115517>hardcorebaby mode for aimlets
>>559115628no one plays classic and normalcore is even worse so i have to live with it
>>559115517>hardcore shitter actually defends garbageNot surprised.
>>559115628>>559115718hardcore is the chad's gamemode, you get punished for being a retard and there's no handholding in the form of health regeneration, you have to actually use your class and work with your team in order to get shit doneno surprise people defend casualfaggotry because they need the game to handhold and guide them through their retardations
>>559115827lol why even pretend when anyone can jump on a hardcore server and see it's 99% snipers too shit to get headshots
>>559087858I fucking loved it though, you could actually push playing scout and the bolt-action rifles with their sweet-spot were great. Also liked the maps, stationary guns, HORSE, God it was great. Can't say why it clicked for me so much though, just really loved it. BFV was such a fucking bag of shit in comparison.
>>559115932nope, it's the same as in normalcore, with high rpm assault rifles dominating the infantry game as usual
>>559089026Real situation is that there is a uncertainty with women in combat roles, especially in special forces. Egalitarian countries are caught between a certain type of equality and reality. I think a lot of countries are dipping their toes and just waiting for a conflict to see the results.Actual average life of the military is 99 % mundane shit however, and that's what actually makes the no-woman-because-realism guys huge faggits. They aren't arguing for realism, but rather their own power fantasy. They are embarrassed to admit that realism is not what actually want. That being said, you are a huge faggit anyway if you unironically think that NU-battlefield is good.
>>559115827harcore is baby mode. The shittiest shitter can just strafe a target and get a kill.
>>559116189nufield has better gameplay and mechanics than oldfield, simple as.
>>559116213just admit you can't aim for shit and need to spray and hope for the best while health regeneration saves you
If the game panders to nostalgia that means it has nothing to showRendezook in a trailer is a huge red flagAlso>HeroesI'm happy I can finally bury battlefield and move on
>>559116305hardcore requires less aim, anonymous
>>559090272don't listen to the newfags anon. Anything after bf2 or bf2142 is pretty much COD. The real appeal of battlefield was working together and feeling like you were a part of something bigger. I dont think those old games have an active playerbase, but some of the newer games have a campaign, but again not what made them special.After BF2 some indies have been trying to chase that direction the Dice left. Squad is one of those and I would recommend playing that instead.
>>559116448the modes don't change how the weapons work, Anon-sama
I hope specialist will not be OP as fuck.
>>559116448>implyingyour accuracy needs to be better given there's faster ttk, if you're shit at aiming, you're dead
>>559083534shit game kys
>>559116448requires the same amount of aimhardcore requires much better positioning though since you don't have a minimap and opening the full sized map is unintuitive
>>559116562Which requires more aim? 1 bullet to kill someone or 7 bullets to kill someone?>>559116598In an even 1v1 fight where both opponents see each other at the same time and no one else is around and it's an entirely fair fight, sure.... but that's not how Battlefield works.
>>559116518good old games will ALWAYS have a playerbase anon
>>559114675It was fun until people just started doing only infantry with jav.
>>559087635They already had abilities, it was called a fucking loadouts and every class had slots for them to mix and match playstyles. This is a cop out to sell skins to zoomers and lonely wageslaves who's only outlet is their Xbox every night. Suck a cock you fuckin tranny
>>559083534Specialists instead of a proper class system is an absolute worse idea, and it will quickly turn from somewhat serious shooter into fortnite level cringefest.No hopes, will check gameplay ofc, but it doesn't look good
>>559116724thanks for just making it clear you've never actually tried hardcore
>>559116302>Better gameplay and mechanicsWord for word the sentence we get on daily threads we have on other forums by newfags who haven't developed a taste or an opinion. What you really mean is that nufield is more gratifying. This is true, but you're still a huge tastelet and need to lurk more.
>>559116907small but dedicated
as a bf veteran I am cautiously optimisticI think the class segmentation hindered gameplay in ways and has gotten stale over the years.
>>559116863Just because it says hardcore doesnt mean you're a hardcore person, you're still a baby that can't aim.>>559116872No I mean its mechanics and gameplay are better. You will never go back to BF2 because it only lives in your head, and the gameplay is outdated.
>>559117085well be prepared for this game to be the most stale one ever seeing as how anyone can use any weapon
Hardcore is easy mode in BF
>>559117087There are no such thing as objectively better mechanics and gameplay you absolute mongoloid.
>>559117173idk man, being able to play as a medic lmg seems nice where you keep pressure on the frontline and also heal your team on the frontline
>>559118023imagine bf3 but every class using the m16a3/m416imagine bf4 but every class using the ace 23/aek-971yeah no, it's gonna be cancer
>>559117487Well good thing I never used the word objectively. Of course a RETARD could enjoy imbalanced spawn camping by an unopposable force that controls 6x the amount of vehicles, and other such nonsenses of past games. Sadly the government protects their right to have such opinions and wont allow us to persecute them. But if we go into detail of each and every game, barring some exceptions like helicopter control where oldfield clearly wins, though since there are none in 1 and V (except the BR mode) we would stray further into muddy waters of what even constitutes nufield. Is 3 nufield? Take tanks for instance, in what world of retardation would BF1942, BF2, or even BF3/4 tanks be better than V? From balance, to movement speed, to turret rotation speeds, to animations, it's a pretty easy argument to make that V tanks shit all over previous entries. There is no "invincibility" button like in 4. You cant set sensitivity to 8000 like oldenfield, and it has more mechanics to it than the old ones, like glancing shots or different ammo types, and tread damage.
>>559115393If the cinematic is anything to go by, they'll actually have lots of verticality, maybe some underground sections (just a speculation tho)
>>559118382You forgot to add that every one of those people is also bionic arm Tracer from the BF5 trailer with a marijuana leaf skin on their gun.
>>559083534It's heroes shoter now, it's a shame.
>bf4 is so packed right now that nearly every sever has 15+ person queues to get in>instead of just making an actual new battlefield game for people to buy they decided to make overwatch: warzone insteadBrilliant decision
>>559118660would you call it an hero shooter if the special gadgets were a faceless storyless subclass?
>>559120089how will it ruin the game then
>>559120379because those aren't classes
