It's a start, I still don't like the map design and not thrilled about scoreboards and VOIP being called legacy features 😂



oh and I still hate the specialists

How to have fun in bf2042 :
play with 3 other peoples in vocal

optimisation is shit but I have fun on bf2042

I think if my PC was able to run it I would have not returned the game as some maps look interesting and portal too. Ignore the bugs as they will get fixed and it will probably be a decent game and potential to have fun.

If they hadn't said and hyped it was going back to Battlefield basics beforehand it would have been received a lot better than it was. Never got to play as a squad as the ones I was allocated to seemed to just do their own thing and couldn't have been further apart if they tried. 😄

I've played an hour or two of CoD Modern Warfare and 2042 is the same except maybe for a few vehicles and some players on your team, the rest is the same !
Tried to find a word or sentence that describes the game without using the word SHIT 🤔
Hmm.....Hmm..... SHIT it is then 🤷‍♂️

"I've played an hour or two of CoD Modern Warfare" is this sufficient to start a disciplinary vote? :D

Was joking as I have just realised I own CoD:MW 2, CoD:MW 3, CoD:MW 4 in my Steam library. Says I have played 84 minutes of 3 and 6 minutes of 4 which I don't remember at all! Plus a few other things that I have never ever played! :singing:

lol ok, thats only the "physical" sales but it says a lot.


also the steam playercount is already going down. already more than halved after the release. o_O (y) (y) :blamelaka:

When I'm passing by some gaming stores in the town, this one is also on a huuuge sale. It usually doesn't happen to triple A games so soon.

When BF3 and BF4 were released it was probably more of a necessity to have physical media as even then broadband was probably variable and download speeds and volumes not up to coping with such volumes. BF2042 is so big that physical media wouldn't be practical. Also, as you are now getting download only consoles, that will be the way to go.

On Amazon it is ranked 69 out of new games and the reviews are generally awful across most platforms with a rating of about ⭐️⭐️ And you can get a refund until end of Jan on there too.

I was trying to be objective and looking at the cost of upgrading my PC which runs the software I have and use most just fine despite being 8 years old. I bet I am not the only one in that situation and I bet EA/Dice didn't consider that either when planning.

Yes, I would like to have Flight Sim and I probably would have 2042 but is it worth getting a new PC just for those two games? If x-box supported keyboard then I might go that route.

I see update 3 has brought



but why
BF4 has the soldier health bar but vehicles I don't remember.

I played my 10 hours in bf2042 now and those are my conclusions

Bugs, hitreg, etc can be fixed but 128 is fundamentally dumb maps are to chaotic, no cover, you always get 20+ people on 1 flag. You don't have impact in the game if you play infantry. Dice made a dumb decision going 128 players.

The rest can all be fixed later on, but the current state is terrible, aim feels dumb because the mouse input is bugged, it's unbalanced breakout is just farming simulator in vehicles.

Mouse input is not bugged anymore. That was only during the beta

Unless I'm going crazy I thought tanks etc didn't, maybe I'm misremembering 😂

Have to admit that 128 players seemed like a good idea to me too back then (yeah let's not talk about how it actully works) and felt like it was also something the community wanted. Unlike other stuff

i got to admit i really enjoy the game besides its many flaws but hey, been playing buggy games all my life with ESO and New World so well. cant even complain :D
Only thing i CAN complain are those...i dont even want to type the word. Those stupid DMR's.
Who thought it would be a good idea to make one of them 2 shot your enemy. no matter where u hit that potatoe. u are dead in 2 shots.
Its w warcrime and has to be forbidden.
