I tried playing BF4 last year. A good game but I’m shit so didn’t enjoy it. Probably won’t play this as a result. Or indeed any multiplayer game ever.

In b4 “nothing beats 1942” tears.

Bf2 was best battlefield because mods and teamspeak
Prove me wrong

Also It's how this place started

I was in the reefermaniac clan during 1942 and BFV

I played BF1942 the most not just because it was a decent game for its time, but because I'd never played an online multiplayer shooter before and it was a whole new experience for me, which is something that continued into BF:V.

BF2 tightened up the maps, controls and brought in significant quality of life improvements. Loved it.

For me it's a toss-up between BF2 and BF:BC2 but they did admittedly arrive at different times of my gaming life, and what I want from a game changes over time too. BC2 maps felt tighter still, the action was quick to get to, the environmental destruction was ace and the learning curve wasn't as steep particularly with the maps. Life gets busier as you get older so it was just the sort of MP game I could enjoy at the time.

I tried BF3 for a while, which was OK but was on a bigger scale which didn't work so well for me. Tried BF4 last year and was too shit to enjoy it. Maybe if I got BF2042 early on there'd be a lot of other n00bs playing too and I might get some enjoyment from it, but I'm not gonna spend full price on a game finding out.

BC2 was way better than BF2.

Most of them sucked donkey balls... but ‘42 still reigns supreme

Remember ‘43? That was fun too.

‘42 gives me the fondest memories being an entirely novel experience and playing it with a couple of mates. The lack of things we now take for granted (iron sights and even running ffs) would drive me nuts these days though.

The BC2 engine (with prone, weird that BC2 didn’t have that) + ‘42 would be an epic combo.

I don’t have any fond memories of BF2 aside from when I gave up on it and just started C4’ing packed helos to see how many teammates I could kill. Fuck that game.

I had the first rush battle of bc2 dialed in
I knew the exact range my tank needed to be to hit those mcoms
You had to have tank zoom
I could sit back and nail them from so far away you couldn't touch me

If I was defending I would use the noob tube to get rid of all the trees and bushes
Good luck trying to make it then

It also helped that I had an alienware with tripple monitors
Now I don't have a pc

I played a lot of BF3, upgraded my puter for it.
I don't ever remember seeing a C130 or motorbikes?

My friends friend (dodgy) was in the testing group of this newest bf and said it was even twitchier than bf4. Snipers didn't get much proning time which might be a good thing actually.
My reaction speed isn't what it used to be, but I might try this one when I get a new laptop. Good thing is that you can't fuck this up with gender derp as it's the future. So I can be a black trans-pan-supersexual handicapped midget with a belt fed dildo launcher with a good conscience.

fyi: BF2042's Lead Community Manager Adam Freeman said that the Battlefield 2042 Specialist 'Sundance' is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns. :D


Well who cares about that anyways in a shooter no less. Nobody gives a real crap over that and those yahoos.
What I really despise is this stupid ass specialist, super-hero-like system.

Unless they bring back the class system to the base game, paying full $70 price for just Portal is not worth it. I think I Will wait till it goes down in price.
Specialists with these much stronger power ups than R6Siege/Cod really killed it for me.

Just imagine if they remade BF1942 exactly with the latest graphics.

It would only take 10% of the effort and be a much better game.

'Meh' is being over generous. Battlefield 2042 Already on Steam's All-Time Worst Reviewed Games List. The problem is B2042 biggest flaws cannot be solved with patches. Those negative reviews are not only about technical issues, but also design choices. And those would requiere a lot more work to fix, or a new game entirely.

These are some of the big issues with it... and the list keeps growing:

https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield204 ... verything/

Many of the basic features are missing. Talk about regressive into the ground. From flying squirrels to wall hack girl EA/Dice are chasing useless trends while the game loses its core identity. I thought BFV was bad, BF2042 is even worse.


Quote:
Core Features

No single-player story/campaign mode
No standard server browser
Fewer standardized game modes (Can't even play TDM or smaller scale modes without relying on community servers. Really?)
No standard hardcore mode
No persistent lobbies (seriously why do I have to matchmake after EVERY round?)
Fewer in-game assignments
No class system
Less character customization options (than BF5)
No profile progress/stats page in the menu
No battle log/stats tracker for other players
No global leader boards
No dog tags (they still sort of exist I guess?)
No custom emblems
No cross-game profile screen (BF 4, HL, 1, and V were all linked by a menu if you owned them digitally, was a neat feature.)
No spectator mode
No permanent community servers (would be useful for clans and events)
No Central US servers
No test range (this one is sort of compensated for with single payer servers vs bots)

Infantry Gameplay

Fewer guns (even including all the portal guns, BF4 still had more at launch)
Fewer infantry gadgets
No manual leaning
No diving while swimming
No high wall vaulting
No crouch sprinting
No backwards prone
No explosion knockback
No rolling after falling from heights
No ammo or health pickup off teammates
No scope zeroing
No tiered reloads/paused reloads
No melee weapon choices
No thermal optics
No indirect fire gadgets
Less anti-tank launchers (Come on man only one?)
No lock-on launchers (The M5 works with the SOFLAM but that requires 2 people)
No AP mines/claymores
No suppression mechanic (This one I don't mind but I'm including everything)
No first person takedown animations (whether this is a downgrade is up for debate, but I think it is)

Vehicles

Fewer vehicle types (and separate vehicle progression per faction even though they are functionally identical... why???)
No naval vehicles (Except I guess the hovercraft technically)
No vehicle gunner direction indicator
No lock on direction indicator
No unoccupied seat indicator on friendly vehicles
No vehicle enter/exit animations
No tank turret decoupling (This was so great in BF4!)
Less vehicle driver/pilot customization options
No tank zoom customization options
No tank gunner customization options
No heli gunner secondary weapons
No separate heli/fixed-wing controls
No rocket aiming reticle for helictopters
No control input while looking behind/free looking in aircraft (BF1 and V pilots, this one is gonna absolutely suck for you guys)
No joystick/non-generic gamepad support
General consensus seems to be that the helicopter and fixed wing flight models are a step down from BF4.
No behemoths

Scoring System

No squad wipe scoring
No player damage points
No vehicle damage points
No vehicle kill assist points
No headshot bonus
No long-range kill bonus
No assist counts as kill bonus
No multi-kill bonus
No killstreak stopped bonus
No comeback bonus
No squad objective play bonus
Oversimplified teamplay scoring (i.e. healing a teammate always gives you a flat +5xp rather than being based on how much you heal them)

Squad and Teamwork

No commander
No special squad call-in abilities
No squad field upgrades
No in-game VOIP (coming soonTM)
Fewer factions (with almost nothing to give the 2 factions any distinction)
No cross-team chat
No team changing
No "create new squad" option
No self protmot to squad lead using "request order"
No clans/platoons (coming soonTM)
No view of squadmates while in the spawn screen
No "Medic incoming" indicator in downed state (coming soonTM)
No rank names/icons, just a number.

Maps

Lack of persistent servers means poor map rotation (I played for 10 hours and never saw Kaleidescope, Orbital, or Breakaway)
Fewer base game maps (not including portal maps)
No static weapon emplacements
Fewer destructible buildings
Very poor balance between vehicle and infantry gameplay
No infantry focused maps
No game changing levolution
Absolutely zero cover between capture zones
Poor spawn points (Constantly spawning in the open/visible to enemies)
No fortification building (given how open all the maps are, this could have been super useful)
Fewer urban areas
No naval maps

UI and Quality of Life

Less control customization options
Less UI customization options
No HUD/icon opacity customization
No HUD scaling customization options
No gunsight reticle customization options
No network performance graph
No individual player scoreboard
No ability to zoom in on the spawn map
Less detail in the 'who killed you' screen
Less ultrawide monitor support (hud ratio is locked in at 16:9)
Very poor friend joining system (Lack of server browser makes playing with more than 4 friends completely impossible)
Poor console aim assist (big fat fuck you to console players there, dice. Hopefully this will come with the D1 patch)
No in game crossplay toggle option (you have to change your global console settings)

Audio

General consensus seems to be the audio design is bad, especially compared to both BF3 and BF1.
3D soundscape is almost non-exsistent
Less impactful soundtrack (menu music is very dull and repetitive)
End of round music is dull and uninteresting (compared to BF1 and V this is a big downgrade)
End of round voicelines are just so tone-deaf and awful. I can't describe how much I hate them. (Tried to keep the rest of the list objective, but I had to add this. You guys understand)

Fuck me that’s disappointing.

Gimme Bad Company 3 and I’m happy. BC2 was the last BF I wanted to invest serious time in.

BF3 was ok. All gets meh after that.

Yeah not buying it. No way.

Update 42 with modern graphics and BF2 squads and commander. Done. We should just make it. Can’t be that hard.
