You call yourself old school but you are complaining about the lack of good 3D-spotting and lack of revives? Not having those things is entirely supportive of the slow-paced gameplay you say you're looking for. I haven't played the game so I don't know how it is but I'm honestly confused with your criticism.Lumos said:beta is out. This is some of the least fun I've had in a game in a while. In one sentence, the game can be summed up as "invisible ****ers spawnkill me". Camper in a tank? Tough luck, you got no RPGs to take him out, only an AT grenade with a 50 years long timer and non-sticking C4 that's pointless because vehicle drivers aren't that idiotic to stand still. Try to buy the AT rocket gun? Can't, "not high enough rank". I'm level 2, that **** needs level 1, but I'm apparently Assault rank 0. I think. Nowhere does it say how much my progress to Assault 1 is, or if that's even the thing I need to be doing. Fine, let's stay away from vehicles then.
Infantry: Scum everywhere, and you can't see them, because 3D spotting has been nerfed to hell and back, and the minimap and its icons are so tiny that I can't see anything at all. The bygone days where I played BF2 and adored a slower, more intimate playstyle are over, my love, and this is exactly like the BF3 beta when I started. Enemies are ****ing invisible. I literally can't see them, and even if I do, they've already half-killed me. Fine, let's stay away from infantry then.
Sniping: I swear to God, only 15% of my shots connect. Horizontal scope offsetting? "WIND DRAG"? The **** am I supposed to kill people?! I'm not here to play ARMA Sniper Elite Ghost Warrior 15, I'm here to murder other humans. ****ing hell. Scope glint is back, which is nice, but it's also been nerfed, so it's pretty much useless. Also, you don't move fast enough and non-snipers' guns are ****e at range, so you can't defend yourself if you're being sniped at.
I had a little, little bit of fun in the final Rush match I played. Our team was pretty much worthless, and I slowly, slowly advanced forwards, picking off targets one by one (i.e. getting "spot bonus 25" scores. Occasionally. but I did kill one guy, I think), slowly closing the distance and methodically advancing. But guess what? 150 tickets, *****! Take that slow-paced gameplay you remember from BF2 and shove it deep up your arse, cause it's never going to be a thing in this game.
I also rode on a horse for 5 seconds. Sabre attacks can't be held like in M&B, you just click-and-swing. Laaaaaaaaaaaaaame. Get bombed by a plane? NOTHING YOU CAN DO, ******. Now get reduced to 15% HP and get blasted by the ****ing tank jerk-off again. Medics don't revive ****, probably because you don't get revive notifications as a medic, and I was healed ONCE. I revived 2 guys and got "best medic of the game", for ****'s sake!
Rage rage rage rage rage, and so on, and this is ****ing heresy coming from me, the long-term "old-school" fanboy. I'm going back to Dirty Bomb for the time being, thank you very much.
Yeah, speaking of stuttering, I keep flip flopping between 60 fps and 3. Kinda weird, but I can live with it. Everyone's ping stays pretty low, so that's a plus.Arvenski said:I'm not having a wonderful time, but I don't know how much of that is the game's fault. Vehicles (and to a lesser extent, horses) are annoying, yeah, but other than that, my main issues seem to be lag and/or some kind of stuttering, a mouse that isn't working properly, and getting into games where the enemy team's kicking the crap outta mine. Besides those things, the game seems alright, at least as far as the infantry combat goes. I think I need to play the game more in order to get more of a feel for it, and to see about unlocking some different/better stuff. And yeah, about the only other FPS like this that I've played is Battlefront. And since I actually like Battlefront, unlike, it would seem, a lot of people, I guess that bodes well for my liking Battlefield 1, too.
Me, on a number of occasions: "Oh, there's a tank. No worries, he's friendl-" BOOM *dies*Vraelomon said:And yeah, like you mentioned earlier they really need a better way to recognize allied vehicles than a tiny blue dot that may or may not be there. I keep shooting at our own planes.
... Which doesn't work when rounds aren't made to accommodate it. Besides, the point of having a medic class is to get revived, not to get bypassed by the medics whilst bleeding out.Rigadoon said:You call yourself old school but you are complaining about the lack of good 3D-spotting and lack of revives?

Lack of revives is actually a good thing, whoever played BF4 on infantry maps(Metro,Locker) will know the revive spam hell that it isRigadoon said:lack of revives?
Edit: Also, sniping being more difficult due to realistic effects like wind can only be a good thing, in my opinion.
It makes me want to smash my head in the wall.Emil said:
Sure, when I get revived mid fire I get shot instantly or I get a grenade to the face while having almost no time to reactLumos said:It's better to be revived and die in half a second than to simply never get a second chance. Besides, reviving people in the middle of a firefight was a very efficient way to draw fire away from you, giving yourself a little breather and time to return fire. Grenade spam has always been much worse than reviving.
