    Don't see it mentioned on last week's TWIB post. They probably only bothered mentioning it to Reddit.

    The contest was posted back in December on both Reddit and the Forums. 
    Here's the Forum link: https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/197987/battlefield-v-war-in-the-pacific-nvidia-geforce-cinematic-contest


    Was also called out on last week's Weekly Debrief : https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/199191/battlefield-v-weekly-debrief-january-17-2020

    Submissions were open for 3 full weeks. It was also called out in a couple of TWIB and Weekly Debrief posts. 
    The judging of the entries is taking a couple weeks because the max length of video is 5 minutes. So (doing some math), if there's 100 valid submissions (there's not) all at max length (they're not), that's 500 minutes of video we have to watch, rate, and then pull finalists. 500 minutes = almost 9 hours.  


    Btw - I make the same posts on the Forums that I make on Reddit.

    @Braddock512 Could you, in future, say that stuff released by you will mean that it releases at Pacific Standard Time, as for more than half of the world TWIB released on a Wednesday, not Tuesday. I think this would be helpful in the future, as the only CM communicating offically right now is also the only guy based on the Pacific and therefore has office hours at least 10 hours different from the rest of the team.

    It just doesn’t feel like a serious shooter right now.

    Same, I don't know why they don't change back to 5.0 values and remove the spotting. I have no idea why DICE are taking so long to communicate what's going on.

    I have pretty much stopped playing now, the fun is gone

    The fun was never there, there is too much broken in the core (game/server performance, visibility, anti-cheat, unbalance, etc, etc) of the game: frustration about those things have taken the fun away since day 1.

    This week in Battlefield V is really a waste of time, posted Wednesday 22/01/2020 but really no info, just a space filler. One would have thought it would be posted at the start of the week not the 2nd or 3rd day depending on time zone. Come on Part Welsh and Bradock512 you can lift your game.

    What happened to the video interviews with the Dev's or the BF weekly live ??

    Really the community managers have just run out of idea's how to keep the community engaged.

    Even this forum will only show 1 user logged on at one time, how broken is that ? Never mentioned or fixed.

    Get you act together guys, I'm a fan of you both but this is unacceptable.

    Regards

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

     It's not the community managers fault if the higher ups are not feeding any info to give to us. It's not been handled well by DICE they have brought a'lot of the problems upon themselves. I worry more for the next BF and just hope they learn from this debacle and regain some trust.

    So true, mate. It's Supermario with nerf-guns now.
