I am a casual gamer. My eyesight isn't what it used to be and nor are my reflexes. I have toddlers which limits my game play to after they get to bed. I'm lucky if I can get 1 hour per weeknight and 2 hours per weekend night to play on my Xbox. Out of all the games I could be buying an investing in, I picked Battlefield 5 thinking it would be a continuation of Battlefield 1 fun.
The Tides of War assignments are a problem for us older casual gamers. I do truely appreciate the new content and unique assignment but this week expiration is such a burden. I was focused and played alone Thursday and unlocked the first few bubbles of repair and build. Then I hit a brick wall. It took me 3 hours Friday to just get the center bubble completed. I am now stuck on the Armored Fist with limited time to try and unlock it.
I spent Sunday reading posts on the best way to unlock it and I started to do the suggestion which helped. I got 25% of the final bubble filled, but I worry I wont get the rest completed by Wednesday.
I gave up the squad games I enjoy in exchange for frustration to unlock content with an excessive short window to obtain.
Having a short time table forces players like me to grind which isn't that enjoyable and it motivates players to ignore the parts of the game they find Joy in to grind out and struggle with frustration.
