If I am completely honest most will probably paly ther game 1-2 years then upgrade to the next version. It's kind of how gamers are now a days. There will be some hardcore ones like hammy or others that shreck the game for more years. But it's still worth it. $40 for 1-2 years of legit gameplay?

Well, I went for it. Maybe tomorrow I will get to play, because I have fast internet, but clearly origin doesn't. has been running over an hour, 7% downloaded... over 11 left at these slow speeds. On steam I can download this much in less than 30 minutes. Ugh. Not a good start.

Arbo ThaMule add me on origin. I need some squad mates that actually give and follow orders. I got around 3000xp on one squad with around 15 kills. The next game I switched squads and took over as squad leader and got 12000xp with only 2 kills.

not sure what to think so far. yeah, graphics are stellar. but it quickly turns into the "look, everyone can one shot me and i empty a mag in them with red hit indicators and they do not die"...

The trend is that people play a new game for a year or so until the next one comes out unfortunately, like what Pr0cl1v1ty mentioned. For me however, I see myself sticking to this game for a long while. I love the idea that it is WWI and have been wanting this type of game since BF1918 came out for BF2.

I do agree we own wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too many games on both Steam and Origin, but my plan is to buy at the very least a new video card for this game. That alone should say something for how impressed I am with this game.

As far as the vast majority of DPG and friends of ours in our community, its Battlefield... and with that said, not everyone is going to like it. I have always loved Battlefield games and own every one that ever came out to the exception of Hardline (although that may soon change since I see its on sale on Origin).

I totally see Battlefield making another World War 2 BF game in the near future as well. If that ends up being the next BF title, I will most likely get that as well.

Last, I want to get us a server, but until there is a way in which people can easily connect to our server, there is no point of getting us one yet. I do like the idea that we can set the damage modifiers like how we do with our CoD4 server similar to how Dren does it currently, but on a ranked server! That right there is pretty bad ass and I think we can all agree that what we would like to have is all the features of the standard mode, but with the hardcore settings of not having to put a whole clip into somebody to kill them. I would love the feature of being able to spot people by pressing Q as normal, but think it would be better if we could turn off the mini map showing in the top left of our screen. This way the only spotting that can be seen is on your own screen instead. Being stuck in first person mode on hardcore servers for vehicles is quite annoying imo. This mode should be referred to as "realism mode" not hardcore mode. This all can be done to my understanding by renting a server, but again, until they get some things fixed, I think we should wait on that imho...

Dren
11-24-2016, 06:29 AM
Tempted but really should wait. Even with the sale going cant justify the expenditure. :notsure:

So Titanfall 2 will have to hold me over for the time being.

Have played every Battlefield game since 1942, when Bad Company 2 was released it seems that DICE went more style over actual substance which in turn alienated allot of the player base from 1942 / 2 / 2142.

Arbo
11-24-2016, 08:25 AM
played last night. certainly there are things it will take a bit to get used to. what I don't like is what seems like a massive amountof those that camp and snipe. ugh.

Max][mu$

Arbo
11-24-2016, 08:49 AM
never been in a plane.. yet.

I had to rage quit just a bit ago. Constantly spawning into a tank blast. Snipers all over that seem to be able to do 30+ kills without once getting killed. Seems a bit much.

Arbo
11-24-2016, 05:55 PM
Perhaps I have just had nothing but bad experiences... nobody plays as a squad, there is no teamwork at all, no communication. Maybe one day will find a server that is not utter chaos.

11-24-2016, 08:46 PM
I am loving this game, and also see myself sticking to it for quite a while. I played a lot of BF2 back in the day, but no other battlefield game has really gripped me....until this one.

I will say Arbo, it definitely takes a little while to get used to how to play and survive consistently, but it will happen eventually. You begin to learn how all of the classes, etc, on the other team are playing, and become able to adapt to it. The map being played on also makes a huge difference, as the mountain and desert maps see far more snipers, while city maps tend to lean towards assault. It is all about being able to adapt. There will always be players on the other team that counter your class/playstyle, and there will always be players that YOU counter.

People can feel free to add me on Origin if they want to play sometime, just add Sharpysharp

Arbo Battlefield has been like this from the beginning. I am just as guilty of it during pub play as the next person was, especially in BF2. I was the selfish bomber pilot, unless I had a reasonably competent person using the laser guided bombs. Take Kubra Dam for example. I could clear most flag areas in one pass, go ahead hide in a building I can hot swap to laser guided and drop the beasts inside a window.

Now when it was time for 5v5, 8v8, 12v12 communication was key. When league was in season and our team was using pub players for practice we would be in constant communication. Knowing the rest of your squad helps more then I can ever state. Knowing how they are going to react is an advantage that most people playing a public game will never understand. But you are not very likely to find that co-operation out of many. Once I actually get the game I will have to get with you and a few others so that we can put a squad together and decimate a few pub games. One squad with the proper communication can really do a number on a Battlefield game.

Arbo
11-25-2016, 08:00 AM
Dren, I look forward to that. It boggles my mind how few people work together in games where it makes sense to work together. It's funny because squad is just the opposite, where communication and working together is pretty common. Perhaps that's why BF1 to me feels more arcadish than realistic.... people not playing it right. lol.

Hackers. Big problem. I turned on the chat window and on several servers I just see them getting banned every minute or two. Non stop.

It is pretty clear when you are laying down MG suppression and a guy can stand up and one shot you from spec distance.

Never understand why people bother. If you suck, just deal with it, I do. Cheating is for the lowest form of scum.

From what I've heard/read the fairfight message is a global message that goes out to every server not just in game players. But with as many as the catch how many are getting away with it.

Arbo
11-27-2016, 10:00 AM
Was not aware that was a global message. Yeah, it seems there are loads that are not caught. 100 and 4, not sketchy at all when hellfire is raining down on everyone. lol.

I actually find that scores like that are usually legit, and the result of someone driving a tank that never gets blown up. If the opposing team isn't overly competent about taking those out, it can be a blood bath.

The only time I have seen someone obviously hacking was a guy that was 70-2 as sniper....while this isn't impossible, the shots and the speed he made them with were suspiciously....along with those 100 service medals for the gun he was using lol....

Just bought a GTX 970 for $175 with free shipping on Ebay. It should be here between Fri. Dec. 2 - Tue. Dec. 6. Really got tired of playing this game on the lowest graphics and at 1024x768 resolution, to only get 10 - 30 FPS with dual 7870s...

Arbo
11-28-2016, 11:15 AM
I have a gtx 970, and at 1920x i still get the little 'missed frames' icon flashing... maybe need to drop the resolution a bit. idk. i turned down settings. gonna shut off that shadow play stuff and see if that helps.

DeviL
11-28-2016, 02:06 PM
Is that what that little yellow icon is?! I've been wondering about that. But it seems so smooth so I hadn't thought anything of it. I have a 960.

I was wrong, it was low FPS. I turned off the shadow play, but still see the flashy icon. When i put up FPS on screen it shows 60, and drops on occasion, but the built in fps goes away after a few seconds. So can't watch it the whole time.

These are the warning icons that appear and what they mean.

Arbo
11-28-2016, 03:30 PM

I am at 1920x everything low.atiailiasing and ambiant off. Ah, vert sync locks framerate... was looking for something like that.

Ah, am anywhere from 140's down into the 80's...

And I am clam.. the bs yelling is due to people that are amazingly able to do one or two shot kills with the same assault gun i have that can't hit people from 10 feet away. and how a sniper can shoot you dead one shot from across the map.... no way, tried those guns, not that powerful.

From what i saw today when i played the low fps warning comes up when you hit 60fps. Checked with both nvidia and evga presicion 61 it went away at 60 it was there. Presumably if you have vsync on at 60fps it will always be there? Im not sure how it works but at 60 i was getting the icon. No vsync on

Arbo
11-29-2016, 08:10 AM
yeah if you have vsync turned off, or your monitor is more than 60hz with it on, it will go away.

Nice!!! We have a decent, handful or more of guys playing. You missed me going 36-4 a couple of nights ago on St. Quentin Scar with an attack plane (biplane). I am not a great fighter pilot, but I can bomb the hell out of some peeps. :D

I got my copy for free from a friend, but he got my key from a site from http://www.dlcompare.com/ and went with Instant Gaming. You may find other reliable sites as well, but I got my key pretty quick. The only thing I didn't like was having to take a screenshot of my drivers license, but it wasn't that big of deal since all I had to do was just mark out my Drivers Licence ID and other personal info. Anyway, you can save a lot of money going through one of these sites. I believe you can still get the game through one of these sites for around what the special was during Black Friday.
