You may remember me. Maybe not. Been away from the field for quite a while. For Honor has drawn me in as well as Sekiro. Haven't touched BF5 for quite a while now, Feb at least. 

I know what a Saltmine this place is. Just curious as to the quick recap: whats the state of things in BF5 since my absence? Reason to return? Better, worse? etc

    It's better than release for sure. I have some issues with micro stuttering that stubbornly wont go away but overall it's better. Still playing mostly every evening.

    Well worth coming back to see for yerself

    We got Firestorm, YAY! .....Right?..... Anyone? K forget that.  We got updated roadmap which is complete disaster if you were looking for new maps. 1 map called Mercury is coming May 30th. Still getting weekly assignments for weapons and skin. 

    Other than that, nothing has changed really.

    If you are asking is the game magically fun, bug free and content is even close to where it should have been on release?! Nope. Still a joke but you can pay real money for cartoon skins, so there’s that!!

    You paid for it, you might as well play if the aggravation level isn't too much for you. I have two types of BFV games. Some make me wonder why I bother, like last night when some low-rank player goes through the server like he's harvesting wheat and finishes in first place, and everyone being killed by him was thinking, "Whoa, something about that wasn't right". Or two clans stacked up one team and smashed the other side flat, laughing about it in chat, "We're just some guys playing with friends, what's the problem?" Then later I had some games which seemed more normal, close games where nobody had superhuman powers and the teams were balanced and whether we won or lost it was fun to play. With no rented servers and thus no admins to take out the trash or balance teams, the kind of games I get are hit or miss. The fun games happen often enough to keep me going despite the lack of new maps etc. resulting form's EA's foolish decision to make this a "live service" game. But one of these days some friend is going to tell me about a great new game from another company and I'll like it so much I won't have much reason to play BFV anymore. I bought BF1942, and here I am thinking that if BF6 repeats the incredibly bad choices EA made in BFV, I might not buy it. Hell of a business model, make you long-time loyal customers lose interest in the franchise....

    Had to copy this from reddit:D :D :D
    Lol! Sad about the historic cathedral, but Notre Dame would be a great new map, certainly better than that bombed out church in Devastation.

    Since February?  I don't feel like there's much that's changed at all worth noting.  Firestorm is a thing now and you can dump money on elite boin only skins.  Kinda covers it.  All the things that were problems in this game remain problems, strongly suggesting DICE probably has no idea how ti fix them.  And, um, new Tides of War and a gun unlockable this week.  *shrug*

    When the firefighter gets better can he come put out the firestorm?
