    It's pretty tactical....ring around the Rosie conquest/domination can get boring as well.
    Think FS only gets boring if you win almost every round - do you?

    it's boring cuz there is no action till u drop to hotspots

    then play Apex? Firestorm is in the PUBG family of BR games where part of the fun is the pre-engagement build up and hunting.

    If you want fast-pace constant fighting with a lower skill ceiling then Apex is for you

    This is exactly how I feel. Half of the rush I get in playing Firestorm is just running around hearing things that turn out to be my own teammates footsteps. Firestorm requires you to play smart and punishes those that run around running and gunning. If you get a good squad together you can work to surround people and attack only when you are ready to, which why I like Firestorm way more than Apex or Fortnite. The thrill is in the hunt.

    Firestorm is honestly terrible. Its buggy and lags a lot. The ring moves to often. So you hardly get to loot or see any part of the map before you're being forced to run for 5 minutes. You pretty much need to always land in the very center if you want to even hope to get decent gear. The menu for your inventory is confusing and unclear. Because the game is designed around a quick ttk is designed to be so fast for bfv you get downed and completely killed out of the game really quickly. The lack of in-game communication with pinging objects or areas makes playing randoms extremely difficult. Overall everything just feels buggy, rushed, and poorly thrown together. I don't know if dice was thinking this would be a hardcore battleroyal game but BR just doesnt work in the battlefield series. It doesn't make sense from a gameplay standpoint. And it doesnt make sense from a "story standpoint" for lack of a better word. Dice should never have invested time and energy into this. The time it took to design this map which is like 10 times larger than hamada? They could have given us at least 5 other maps for all our other multiplayer experiences. Plus weapons, cosmetics, vehicles, gadgets, and other factions. Those other game types are why people play battlefield games. Not for more Battleroyale crap.

    It sounds like that you don’t like that Battle Royale games are extremely circumstantial from your post. If not then no, firestorm isn’t for you.

    One of the best things about Battle Royale games to anyone who likes them is the circumstance, while it can drive you insane from time to time it always makes for an interesting match to us 🤷‍♀️

    I dont enjoy BR games as much as other game types. But I do like Apex a lot. Apex is very well done. It's not nearly as buggy. The game itself is designed completely for BR so it works extremely well and is a lot of fun to play. It's obviously frustrating at times but thats the nature of BR games like you said. But BF games aren't designed for BR and it clearly shows in firestorm. There are just so many things about it that work in regular multiplayer modes but don't work at all in BR.

    South African players having no servers despite having full bfv servers, having tired of the base game firestorm was the last hope of keeping me playing your game, at this point I feel like I and many others in Southern Africa have wasted their money. Being matched onto EU or na servers with a ping of 230-280 Vs players with 2-50 ms is impossible even emptying a full mag close range into a player they are still easily able to kill me first ever single time. At this moment the game is unplayable so from me it gets a 0/10

    There have been decent RSA servers from BF2 till now. I only struggled to find BFV ones. But it seems like no matter what I select the server list is empty.

    hi i also struggled but when you select africa as the region and at slots just leave that with no selection (as in dont select any option or deselect everything you have selected) you should get many servers for SA i play every day just BF1 i cant see any SA activity there...

    If you remove all options in selection even players count etc you will see more. But it's still not enough. Have Africa as your only selection.

    God, do i hate this mode already. Just getting the 1500 points for ToW is enough to make me never want to play this again.
    Appreciate the feedback. Got any specific details on why?

    Hey first of all, nice to read something from u here.

    I just can speak for myself and maybe some of my clanmates.
    We had the hope that firestorm would be a part of BFV and not a different game, firestorm is a normal BR game like all the others.

    I think it would be really good if firestorm would share the regular BFV mechanics...
    without armor, with normal medikits, revives, with the different classes!!

    why can't we drop as a full equipped squad with the weapons (and weapon specialisations) we wan't to start with?? just let us choose our loadout (remove 6x scopes is okay)
    and than go for the other squads and hunt them down... without the luck part!

    that would be the Battlefield way BR i would like to play!!!

    Yeah that will never happen sadly, cuz u decided to make a regular BR and not a Battlefield one.

    Why can't we build stuff like in fortnite?

    Because Fortnite is for 8-year olds that also still play that awful game called Minecraft. BF thankfully has decided to distinguish themselves.

    Distinguish themselves how? When bf said they were gonna reimagine battle royale, I figured it would still basically have the same archetype as any other BR game, but I thought they'd put in more work to actually make it unique to their franchise.

    But what about firestorm is really different or an improvement over any other BR game? All I see is more polish.

    Any chance we might see some other gadgets added from the main game? I'd love to use the smoke launcher or the spotting scope, for example.

    Well, scavenging is a big part of BR and having our own load outs would diminish the “even playing field.”

    However, I agree that we should have different classes. Apex does this where the different characters have different powers and it’s one of the things that makes it interesting. If they found a good, balanced way to make the different classes distinct that would be pretty cool. It doesn’t even have to be that deep. It could be just one simple ability that sets each one apart.

    yeah i totally undestand ur point!
    but weapons in different tiers and the luck part of "good loot" isn't an "even playing field" too! and sorry but how is "everyone can play the loadout he/she want to play" uneven?
    maybe it would be better if everyone start with a STG44 (or whatever) as standard gun...
    but yea thats not the regular BR. I don't like regular BR games that's why i was excited for firestorm just to see "nah it's just another BR like every other"

    how so? PUBG is entirely designed for BR and is one of the kings of the genre and yet Firestorm does everything it does but better (except current looting)

    i think different class abilities would be cool. not as much as Apex though. I really cant stand a hero system in BR.

    Examples that i think could be cool:

    - Medic could have reduced revive time on downed teammates and maybe have higher med capacity. Perhaps even he could get more heals from medpacks then the other classes

    - Assault could have higher gadget capacity or perhaps a slight reduction of recoil across all weapons

    - support could have higher ammo capacity or even be able to supply a limited amount of all types of ammo from the start

    - recon could have a full fledged Apex like ping ability. limiting the ping system to recon would actually be very cool and make him very valuable. still let other classes use current system but a recon would have far more options

    I don't know if this will help to improve firestorm just a little or not. (It might help with stratigy) when some one is killed, skulls on the "big map" might help, where to go, or what to avoid(area wise).

    I've never played a battle royal game before until now .......and to sum it briefly, i absolutely hate it !
    I find no attraction playing this mode whatsoever, but then that's just me .
    Obviously other people like as we are all different, but I just love having a good ol firefight with absolute carnage everywhere, like the previous battlefield game's.

    What if we could at least choose our melee weapon? That little dagger sucks. Speaking of that, has anyone tried any of the other melee weapons? Are they any better? I’ve picked them up, but never actually used them. If they actually make a difference that would be something. Or maybe we all start with a sidearm.

    The problem with all starting with an STG or something is that every hot zone would immediately be a firefight and many people’s rounds would be even shorter.

    seems like the melee weapons got the same stats from bf1 (at least for regular bfv)
    that means bigger weapons like pickaxe or kukri do slightly more dmg but got a smaler ankle to "knifekill" someone from behind AND got slower attack speed.
    So with small knifes u can "1 shot kill" from behind and nearly from the side but u do less dmg to the frontside while bigger weapons just can "1 shot kill" straight from behind but do more dmg to the frontside.
    i don't know if it is the same for firestorm cuz it doesn't feel like Battlefield at all...

    And for the "start with STG"...
    maybe there were no more hotspots or it just would change the gameplay for Firestorm to make it more different to all the other BR games...

    (everything i write is just MY opinion!)
