DICE has been pretty clear in interviews since the reveal that the "classic Battlefield gameplay" is still paramount so I'm not really sure why you'd expect otherwise.

I'm having a great time getting in some games since yesterday.

A few things need moderate tweaking for the final release. As it is the novelty makes you forgive them but it needs cleaning up. Medic and the reviving situation for one, I love being a good medic in a functioning squad so this stands out to me.

Mostly it is on course to convincing me to buy it when it comes out. Last I bought was BF3 as 4 was a shit show for a year and the star wars thing looked hollow as all fuck. Thought I was done with Battlefield until now like (I'd buy another Bad company yin a heart beat though I suppose).

It has some of the most satisfying killing and gameplay moments I have had in a while. The bayonet charging is superb.

>Sand storm rolls in and I charge down a road with an enemy sharpshooter panic firing his bolt action around my head just before I run him clean through.

>I am rolling through the town with a flame-thrower burning out squads by the room full. They are converging on my, so I am setting the world on fire around me. The last man of the enemy squad burning to death kills me with a spiked club to the face just before he turns into a crispy husk. We congratulated each other for the moment in the chat.

>Dashing across the dunes with on my warhorse and I spot an enemy on horse back as he spots me. Firing at each other with rifles on approach we both go to the sabre charging at each other. Single combat as gentlemen even in this modern war.


I knew it would get me all hyped up about WW1 so I bought a 4 pack of Verdun and gave it to my friends who didn't already have it so we can play that sometimes too and really get the authentic trench war hell fix.

Apparently I was taking "classic battlefield gameplay" too literally, I just thought they meant they were keeping the air/tank/infantry gameplay and conquest game mode, not that they meant "we are literally just putting a fresh coat of paint on Battlefield 4, the same way we did with Hardline". I was expecting something interesting and respective of the setting, that's my bad I guess.
>> No. 58576 ID: 4c768d
After playing a bit more and watching more gameplay I'll probably end up buying it. With BF3 & 4 I always felt I needed a way to deal with vehicles effectively, which mean basically only playing engineer. The vehicles in BF1 seem easier to deal with and not as big of a threat, which I like a lot.

Only getting around 30-40fps though, even though I can run BF4 on high just fine. Apparently my computer is only recognizing 6gb of my 8gb or ram, and says only 4gb are "usable". Ordered an 8gb stick so hopefully that will fix my problems

WW1 "can" be pulled off in a shooter, the problem is you have to seriously rethink shooter mechanics and pacing and put alot of time into the game modes. Verdun is an example that can be built upon. I personally think for a WW1 shooter to be great it would need large servers 64+ players on large maps talking 5km2+ having bots that are worth a damn - and alot of them.

DICE knew going into this they were going to butcher history so why didn't they just make it into an alt-history WW1 that got dragged into the 1920's or even 30's?

I never thought being a gunner on a Gotha bomber would be so fun.

The extremely shitty airplanes remind me of Tribes 2. With my bombardier CC Razool and tailgunner Atomic Jew, no vehicle pad was safe. (I was really fucking good at flying bombers in Tribes 2.)

Same thing happened to me in Verdun. Usually I'm the one accused of hacking (people just don't understand MGs are quite decent at long range sniping bursts, and Verdun doesn't show you where you were shot from), but this time there was a squad mate of mine doing 70-0 on a game we lost.

So I checked him out. Turns out he's always a huge distance behind our line & just snipes the living shit out of everyone.

that seems true of a lot of modern games. They seem to balance things for idiots. So anti-vehicle weapons are often complete crap because they expect the vehicle drivers to be some mouth breather who otherwise wouldn't last a min.

EA seems to think infantry anti-vehicle weapons should only be an inconvenience whereas vehicles should counter each other. (like the manpads in most battlefield games) Or maybe they are trying to show how the introduction of tanks took the world by surprise? (ha)

Can confirm. Went 70-2 (between me and one teammate) in squad death match in bf3. Grabbed the IFV, got a gunner. He had voice coms. I didn't. I put in the best driving of my life. Huge clusterfuck in the middle of the map, I roll in and breka it up. Two guys on foot take the middle of the map. The aggressive squads fucked off after naother attempt and changed tactics.
They'd dig in and get cover to fire on each other, and sit around waiting for the vehicle ot park in the open and shoot at them. I'm not retarded, so we always kept moving. the stationary retards would dig in and get nailed by autocanon fire from across the map, hitting dirt with RPGS and wasting javelins.
AT couldn't land enough hits stop me from power sliding down hills into cover to repair. Any lone hero trying to get down to our little corner of the map got run the fuck over if he was downslope.

Cue three squads worth of mines all over the island to finally get rid of me.

The campaign is pretty fun on hard. I'd suggest taking a break between episodes, because they're fairly short.

Multi seems pretty good, though as usual shotguns probably need a nerf and Support needs a buff. (And for those who hated Battlelog, it's gone now and there's a in-game server browser, though there isn't a way to change your loadouts outside of a match as far as I can tell.)

I think I was the only person who didn't have issues with Battlelog. BF3, 4, and H, no problems. (Firefox maybe?)

I didn't have any problems with Battlelog either, but some people apparently hated it.

Being able to alt-tab out and change to another server without quitting the game was nice, but the main thing I liked was being able to edit loadouts without launching the game, and you can't do that in BF1 without joining a server. With BF1 there's the new Battlefield Companion thing, but most of the time it doesn't save my loadout changes. (And as I check it now, all of my loadout presets have been reset)
>> No. 58691 ID: d4c8ee
Further thoughts:

Assault is the main CQB/explosives class and the gadgets are as you'd expect: TNT, Geballte Ladungs, a mediocre rocket gun and mines. The MP18 is pretty good for a starting gun, the M1918 has great hipfire if you like that type of gameplay and the Trench is a straight upgrade to it, while the Storm has better recoil. I'm ambivalent on the shotguns and have just been using the M97 Hunter.

Medic, pressing Q while aiming at somebody automatically throws the small health pouches, same with support's ammo packs. The Cei-Regotti feels lackluster, the M1907 is excellent at close range, the Mondragon and Selb are better at range. I tend to set them to 2x magnification instead of the usual 1.25 for irons.

Support really needs another type of gadget. Mortars aren't hugely useful on some maps, same for limpet mines. The starting Lewis is serviceable like BF4's Ultimax, the Hotchkiss M1909 Storm is a great "assault rifle" type LMG for before you get the BAR, the MG15 nA LW is a more conventional belt feld but is worse than the Lewis LW IMO.

Scout's flare gun is the most useful gadget and is essentially the recon balls from BC2, fire it into a area you want to spot stuff. It also burns people to death. I don't like the SMLE, but the M1895 Russian is a great rifle. K-bullets are kinda pointless unless you've got a support feeding you ammo, but I've downed a few aircraft with them.

Sidearms, just use whatever is cool. The assault's Gasser takes forever to reload but is fun. Apparently the higher rank melee unlocks can be used to smash through walls or damage vehicles. Mini and incendiary grenades are worth unlocking. Also bayonets increase your ADS time so you might find it worth removing them from some guns.

Don't spawn in the fucking heavy tank. Both the medium and light are far more useful. Vehicles have loadouts but they're fairly obscured. Haven't tried much with airplanes yet since I'm still working on setting up a good control scheme.

Stats are up, this is helpful for figuring out what Storm/Trench/Carbine/whatever actually means in comparison to Factory/Infantry guns.
http://symthic.com/bf1-stats

Also I'd highly suggest the Auto-10 for a shotgun unlock, yes it fires slower than the M97 but it hits like a truck. Would also highly advise against getting the M1895 Trench, since it's worse in every aspect than the Infantry.
>> No. 58703 ID: b86cd3
I'm loving the game so far.

Though it sucks that they didn't include the Thompson Annihilator prototype. I figure it'd work as a lower ROF, high damage subgun with a 20 round stick vs the AR-style MP18 and the buzzsaw M1918. But that's what DLC is for I guess. (The Persuader was belt fed and would probably offer too much overlap with the Hellriegel)

>>58697
I expect the Model 10 is gonna get nerfed hard, sadly. I got the Hunter last night it felt like I was regularly getting one-shot kills under 10 meters and 1-2 shot kills under 30.
>> No. 58704 ID: 82a3e8
Got it yesterday from a friend and I have been enjoying the single player so far.

I loved when I was flying at those airships in the plane guys mission and I was like "Fighter screen soon" and then I was like "Um. Why is my entire screen/the sky filled with parts of red planes" then it hit me just how many were flying at me and I was a little pleasantly surprised.

I was having issues with my laptop's CPU overheating and shutting down. I pulled the thing apart and re-thermal-pasted the CPU and GPU, which was good for about 5'C and kept my machine from shutting down. Also, there's a thread on reddit that has some tips. I limited my FPS to 60 and that brought down the temperature quite a bit too.

>> No. 58717 ID: 6ca38e
>>58708
IMO, the airburst needs a longer flight time and a longer range. Or maybe do this for the HE and make it a single hit kill in a very small radius. Something to make it highly effective against stationary targets....like all the goddamn snipers.

I mean, I don't mind snipers THAT much, they're fairly easy to avoid and not that hard to kill if you have a decently accurate weapon. But...there are far too many of them, especially when your team is supposed to be capturing an objective of some sort and half your team is dug in on among the rocks sniping instead of doing something more useful. If there was a good counter to them that they can't easily reach it might reduce the number of snipers and actually get them on the objective.
>> No. 58718 ID: cd5ece
>>58717
The HE mortar is a train wrecker. Protip: You don't have to wait for your view to return before firing again. If you're on target, just mash the fire button.

Sniping is unbalanced, it's too easy and the other class's weapons are too inaccurate. Just what you want in a team game with objectives and tanks, make the most non-team non-objective and non-anti-tank class the most desirable.

My BF1 balance suggestions would be to...
- More crosshair sway for snipers when not holding breath
- Higher rate of fire for medic semi-autos
- Less spread for support LMGs firing in bursts or tapping off single shots
- Make the MP18 a decent weapon (holy shit is it bad)
- Decrease QF1AA range
- Increase assault class anti tank grenade damage (maybe less range)

Pretty much this.

Also I did not like sniping in many BF games. I sorta enjoy it on BF1. So good on them for making the sniper rifles worth a damn if you arent super leet mlg420noscopeblazeitfaggot good.

Ive gotten a lot of "most bombs planted" "most flags capped" etc against and with near full sniper team. Pop on mask, toss some gas grenades, wade into gas with shotgun or smg and murdalize.

I could get behind buffing the supports weapons though. I feel like their weapons are mostly worthless but their gadgets are top tier. Which unfortunately leaves a ton of supports back using airburst and not up in the front dropping ammo and bodies.
