Battlefield V was the last one I played. The rest are shit are after that.

I know you can still pretty easily find BF5 matches
how is BF1?

is there "cross play" between Origin and Steam?

so it's either buy it full price for 40 on steam
get it through XBox gamepass (EA play is included in the dumbass goypass and BF1 is included in EA play)
buy an origin key
or wait for a sale that might never come
>>
>>598536
there is no "cross play between origin and steam"
if you buy an EA game through steam, you still have to have origin open to play it, because it redirects you to origin. i am not a fan of all these companies wanting to keep their failed launchers alive (uplay, origin, epic games launcher, etc.)
>>
>>598598
it goes on sale all the time down to 10 or less dollars
the only problem is that you are going to be like me and miss the free full shortcuts for every class they gave away back in september
>>
>>598605
it seemed like they were on verge of going away and then MS comes along with their gamepass which is the first thing to actually pose a good enough incentive to be an ongoing competitor to steam
and now you have shit like EA baking itself into gamepass
>>
>>598608
i honestly think microsoft is the only company who hasnt put up an embarrassing effort in an attempt to make a competitor to steam. microsoft did one thing very well that the other companies didnt - they didnt pull this retarded "exclusive to my company's launcher!" for their games. this prevented the usual huge wave of backlash, which allowed a lot of people to actually consider what they had to offer.

that's really odd it says there's like 4,000 people on steam and that's not even counting people who have it on origin and not on steam
>>
>>597625
why did they call them MMGs
>>
>>598765
I guess to distinguish them as bipod-only
they certainly don't actually hit any harder
Only a few of them shoot significantly faster
>>
>>598773
with the ROF specialization all of them except the M1919A6 shoot faster than the fastest firing LMG (BAR M1918A2)
still doesn't make them that useful except to annoy people on Operation Underground because of the delay between the bipod being deployed and being able to ADS
>>
>>598749
Isn’t it all on origin though? So it should be more than that 4K on steam. Maybe the problem is just that you’re not playing the right battlefield. 2042 is pretty fun and I still play it but 5 is leagues better in many ways. Why anybody still plays bf1, arguably the worst game in the series, is beyond me.
>>
>>598749
the server browser is the way to go for finding populated games
>>
>>598799

use www.battlefield.agency for accurate playercounts (they have bots that scour the server list player counts and aggregate them for the most accurate number of players - no1 idling in menu is counted, both steam and origin copies are counted).

The MMG designation only refers to the weight of the weapon, not caliber.
Pretty sure the BAR and the M1919 fire the same caliber but the BAR is an LMG because you can carry it around more easily than a M1919.

There's HMGs in the game too but they're all stationary or mounted to vehicles.
>>
>>598799
its like every zoomer faggot on this board was too young to remember the backlash behind bf5 and any reason why some of us prefer bf1. me, i play bf1 because i like the operations mode. i like the operations mode because its the closest thing to red orchestra 2's multiplayer that i can find that isn't dead, and im having to improvise because the faggots at tripwire keep neglecting the core audience that got them to where they are like many other studios (total war being another prime example of this)

Late reply but FYI use server browser. The matchmaking is fucked. It always puts you in lobbies with 300 ping or lobbies that are empty. These are just some I favourited for quick games but there's a shitload of full servers. BF1 is still very popular. And for good reason. It's fun as fuck.

Everyone wants this. Right now they sound stupid and are out of place. Or are you just one of the retards that think they'll axe specialists entirely?

Seeing this thread from the 1st page on /vm/ - I won't touch another battlefield game if they keep pushing specialists. They're a blight on the genre

>>621964
I don't like specialists either I'm just saying they aren't going to remove them entirely from 2042.

How come BFV has such a wide variety of tanks and airplanes, yet most of the maps are amerilards and slopes?

>>621919
>They're fixing shit that sucked how is that bad?
It's bad cuz it should've been done months ago and there's gonna be even more down time between fixes.

What's truly bad about the specialist is how both teams have access to the same motherfuckers. Why didn't they go for having a "Russian" counterparts is beyond me.

Not going to deny that at all. Its embarrassing to that its taken so long to get the game into a maybe season 1 launch state and even then its got a long way to go from there.
Even CoD lately has had faction specific characters so it was pretty embarrassing they didn't do it. I imagine it'd been to challenging to think of 10 brand new characters that also have mirrored abilities. So stupid how their obsession with BR led them to believe specialists where actually a good idea.

I at least hope you're getting paid for this
>>
>>626792
He's stupid for thinking that they're going to change specialists after they've said time and time again, even inside the very video in question, that they are here to stay whether we like them or not.
People whining that specialists are the sole bad thing about the game are retarded as there is SO much other stuff that's terrible too.

i think the idea is great, but combat has been royally fucked in every game after fall of the samurai. i'd love to see a 30 years war game with the same kind of map, and shogun 2's combat. sadly i know it would just become crossbow bolts retextured to look like musket shots (and with almost the same exact firing arcs), and the shitty combat where most units are completely irrelevant. what soihammer players dont understand is that cheap shitty units could be relevant when fielded correctly instead of just being some waste of resources that the enemy chews through at a 10:1 kill death ratio while simultaneously having damn near no contribution to battles

Oh and one more detail I forgot about the 1922 is that it strangely has the unique quirk (probably a bug) where its short reload occurs after emptying the entire belt and the long reload occurs when you try to reload before finishing the belt
basically 1922 encourages SUPPRESSING FIRE by rewarding using your entire fucking belt before reloading
>>
After playing BF5 for quite a bit I can see why it's inferior to BF1. It panders too much to the sweaty competitive types at the expense of the casual players that make up the majority of the playerbase, Behemoths and doritos are part of the reason BF1 is fun for casual players. Also

be more careful when reloading then
reloading an MMG should be a rare thing that you only do once every 30 or so seconds tops

also the 1922 has the best iron sights of all MMGs

>BF1 was fantastic and regarded as one of the best BF games
By CoDfags, people that have never played a prior BF game, and people who play it as their first FPS ever.
Everyone else knows BF1 is a dogshit turd that's only bested by 2042 in how awful it is.

Anon is right. This game killed my interest in this series. It fucking blew.

Aaah... feels good to be a console player. No cheaters... less sweats... no getting ddosed or anything like that. Just me and my buddies pubstomping. PCtards insist on buying 2000$ rigs to play the newest games, but then those newest games turn out to be BFV or 2042. My PS3 and BF3 copy still work great to this day

Sisters!

>>
Why do fags like BF1? The gunplay is shit and the map design is cod levels of atrocious with then being 3 lanish and the desert maps usually leads to snipers camping because they're all open with like 2 houses.

Not to mention it's a ww1 game and bolt action rifles are exclusively locked to recon and even if you use a scopeless rifle they have this gay mechanic to prevent you from noscoping people where snipers have a damage ramp up then drop off except it's also on the unscoped bolt action rifles so they're entirely useless.

After all the updates BFV is unironically the best battlefield game to be released after BF4.
>>
>>631665
Are they really that different?
Am I just a smooth brained retard or at the end of the day is a BF game a just another BF game. Like the overall gameplay feel is pretty damn similar to me in the end that I don't get how people can so deeply hate one over the other once they're in there completed state.

Zero brain power: being a vehicle sweat.
Low brain power: Getting off 1-2 shots on a vehicle, then wait for it to come back because it ran away and is hiding behind a hill until the auto repair finishes

I am sick and tired of being so good (with tanks) at bf5. I can rack up 20-30 kills in mere minutes (if i'm in a tank) and often end up with the highest KDR and kills (with vehicles). I have every class (of tank) maxed out and optimized loadouts for all situations (on tank enabled maps). But if I step out of my comfort zone (a tank seat) for fun others take my spot and perform poorly, to a point it's detrimental to our team. They'll get instantly ambushed (by bazooka assault troopers) or just stand at the back of the map trying to snipe only to get countersniped (by an enemy tank). So in the end I'm burdened with carrying the team (with passenger seats), breaking into capture points tanking damage (lol) and destroying enemy vehicles. This curse of mine is making me lose interest in the game.

>>640160
It's fun enough, if you like onionwars go for it. As you might expect it's a lot of grinding required to get to a fair level of play, but it's doable specially if you go for the coop mode. The end of support means there's no more pay to win, but last I heard of it the servers were fucked, it's worth checking the latest reviews. The number of players might be greater than what steam charts says since it was free on epin a year ago.
