Biggest regret purchase of 2015, and I only paid 20 dollars for the premium all-shit included version.
Game is the defintion of a clusterfuck. Nobody plays any kind of structured game mode in my region either - Rush is totally dead which leaves Conquest only.
Of course, conquest in the game devolves into control point what-a-mole and Tank whoring.
How is it possible to go from Bad Company 2 - a game almost as fun and varied as the best of the classic era Battlefields - 2142 and BF2 to this fucking mess? DiCE seems to not understand what made BC2, 2142 and BF2 so fun.
>>323658203 Oh boy, if you've got buyer's remorse from that, then you should know how I feel for buying it for £31 on launch and only playing it like 10 hours.
>decide to give it another shot last week after all the netcode improvements >only have base game so 60Hz server selection is limited >out of the limited selection i find one that seems to be free of dumbass rules >it's that operation locker map with fucking mindless fuck-corridors everywhere (24/7) >ADMIN: YOU ARE INFECTED >FIND THE ANTIDOTE >i-i don't know what this means >i just want to play video games >kicked: still infected
i tried playing it again just yesterday and the game would crash whenever I tried to join a game. I saw swtor on there and decided to give that a shot only to find that origin downloads an outdated launcher that doesn't work. origin, y u so ass?

>>323661227 >Visceral makes cool cops and robbers game based on Frostbite >EA freaks and says give it a Battlefield look to sell copies >Call it Battlefield: Hardline >Doesn't sell because it has a name that it isn't
>>323658203 Dice have explicitly stated that the reason they haven't made BFBC3 is that they don't know what aspects of BFBC2 made it so popular and hence can't replicate that. Unless they had some Stalinist purge of their Bad Company production staff I really don't understand how that's possible though.
>>323661676 You do know that is a common thing right? >Before a big game release (6 Months) >Hire a shit load of monkeys to make your game >Fire them all right after the launch so you don't have to pay them
That is actually probably what happened m8.
>>323661731 I didn't have a problem with 4's look other than Lens Flare and Hardline looked and ran great, same with Battlefront, it was everything else that was garbage about those two games.
>>323661676 Souns like a sensible explanation, though maybe the answer is that they can't replicate the same love and attention to detail BC1 and BC2 had. I don't have the video, but I remember how one guy of the sound design team said the grenade launcher sound of the Vietnam expansion was the sound of a keyboard hitting the desk
>>323662554 I enjoy BF4. I also enjoyed Battlefield 2 before the servers went bye bye and still enjoy 2142. People who outright hate it always spew memes proving they haven't ever touched it anyway. Its okay to not like things, but at least tell the truth about why you don't like it.
>>323661983 Yeah, but those code monkeys are exactly that - code monkeys. They just do what they're told and have nothing to do with designers and decision makers who are far fewer and more important. Days of those people double-timing it as one of the actual workforce people are long gone.

That's gotta be some straight up bullshit. I started playing Battlefield games with BC2 on 360 (i'd played 1942 at an internet cafe but never had a good pc myself til recently) the game came at the apex of cowwadooty hype and offered an alternative to MW2. If i remember right it had an open beta to draw players in. Loved it the second i played it. The campaign was very average but the open parts were fairly fun. The sound in that game was absolutely amazing and for the most part the maps were pretty good/balanced for the player count and chokepoints were at a minimum. +the Vietnam DLC which was fuckin awesome.
BF3 came out and had less building destruction. Tighter, shittier maps with higher player count like metro, damavand peak and grand bazaar. The reintroduction of jets and conquest as the main gametype divided up the community. The single player was hyped and it was shit. And of course it had a fuckton of dlc and release issues.
I just recently bought bf4 premium on the cheap and avoiding the shittiest maps (metro and locker) I've been enjoying it. feels like a more polished BF3 and most of the maps seem to be multilayered so that theres lots of movement options and cover from air units
>>323663463 When I was in High School I never followed hype culture but this one friend in 8th Grade did. Holy fuck was he hyped for it. I just kept going, seems like Red Dawn, what is so special about it? Then it came out and he was so furious he returned it the day he got it. Keep in mind this kid was poor as shit and his dad was the one buying these games so this kids dad was fucking furious at the Gamestop that they would even sell that shit.
>>323657985 >Nobody plays any kind of structured game mode in my region either - Rush is totally dead which leaves Conquest only.
Ever think there's a reason for that? Rush is a shit game mode in BF4 Conquest is very straight forward; shoot man and capture point. If your squad isn't doing that your loss; I frequently get 4 other people in my squad who are actively working together when the squad leader is actually giving commands and dominating the enemy team.
