So 2000hrs in BF4. 1200hrs in BF1. What have you all got in for time for BFV now? The game has it's good moments. The game unfortunately needs alot of polish. Especially on console. Hard to believe this is a xbox one x enhanced game. Here are some things that need to be addressed asap.
1.Servers and tickrate. I dont want to go the PC route. The X I have was touted as best thing to date. Unfortunately the supporting structure around the console is lacking, big time. Hit way around corners, the dreaded TTD bug etc. We need this done.
2. Legacy issues. Vaulting mechanic, prone, bipod mechanic. General movement needs some polishing. Notice on console when the action gets very hectic the onscreen seems to lag behind the controller action.
3. More maps. I like the tank map. Very enjoyable...if your in a tank. Needs more tanks available on that map. # of Maps in general need to increase. Rush mode needs to come back.
4. This is just a general rant. The game is touted as WW2. Sorry Dice. It may have the look at times of WW2, but it's like the bargain basement version of it. Biggest issues against this. No well known theater events. Grand operations feels like a slog. Where are the other factions? Russia,Japan,Italy,France to name a few. Naval battles? There are many more but I want to touch on the good things because there are many.
The things that work:
The tanks having to resupply. This is a big plus and keeps one tank from taking over the whole map. Thank god no artillary tanks sitting in out of bound anymore all game. Gameplay is good, when the server isnt a mess. I think all the gameplay video I see online is PC only. The console needs to be addressed asap.
The achievements. I like the way they work. You pick which ones you want up to 4 to complete. The only bad to this is you have to x out of a game to collect and put new ones in. The medic and support are in a good place. The classes feels pretty close to being balanced. Only issue I have is with the recon. To me it seems the headshot hit boxes are bit more forgiving than BF1. May just be the wonky server and tickrate of console though.
The game has big potential. Should have left premium or just charged more for the game and included a generous roadmap. The hands on workers behind the scenes at Dice I cannot fault them. They do what there told to do. Hate BF1 or not, the game was a powerhouse. Sold a ton of copies. Maybe didnt go in the direction some have wanted. But If that team would have worked on BFV with all the changes. I feel we would have seen alot more content and better gameplay. Still early in the life of this game. Dice/ EA really need to step this game up now. Alot of disenfranchised players who probably didnt/did buy this one and most likely wont buy another one if nothing changes. I'm not knocking the game, just honest criticisms. The whole TTK controversy really boiled over. I feel the gameplay for a PC player is leaps and bounds over what a console player experience is. I feel that may be the problem in a nutshell.
