    the stuck on death screen has not been fixed or did I miss the point in the patch notes?

    I think they forget to fix this most annoying bug. But hey... there is a solution: dont die to close to fortifications :(

    Why would you give out codes for the year 2 edition of BFV to the community?  I would think only veterens of the BF community are the only one playing this train wresck at this point.  And even if they aren't who would want to after all of the bad press? 

    Still thinking of leaving Twitch on Wednesday since so are so few people watching BFV streams. You have a ood chance of winning something.

    @RC-1136_DRMN I have a friend in Greece that has wished to play/squad bfv with me since its release, but alas he has never been able to afford luxury bfv game sadly, and i cannot gift him a copy due to ea origin platform rules for the UK.  So I welcome this contest for him to win one!
    Even just with solo's/firestorm there is still lots of content for a fresh player despite less active MP servers.

    @Braddock512 Will BFV come to the steam platform?  That would certainly boost the dwindling player base for pc I expect!

    Playing on the PC. Updated the software. Game is graphic glitches on the home screen, and will not load any game. Loading icon just sits and spins. Very annoying, but not surprising really. Worked just fine last night.

    Out of curiosity, how many trailer submissions were there? I found a few on youtube, and they were rather enjoyeable to watch. Curious how many more I have left to find. :)

    Around 80 or so.

    Thanks for the question. Here's the answer I gave on reddit last week, although they phrased it a little less negatively: 

    When EA (and all our studios around the world) went into Shelter-in-Home status at the beginning of March, we wanted to help keep people occupied while at home. That's why I've been doing game code giveaways for the last... 6 (or so) .. weeks.
    Some folks want to play previous titles, like BF4 or BF1, so I made sure to get codes for those titles on all platforms as well. No strings attached - just play some games, stay inside, and stay healthy.

    Additionally, some folks have friends that haven't jumped into BFV yet, so this is a way to maintain social distancing while also playing video games and staying safe and healthy. 

    Playing on the PC. Updated the software. Game is graphic glitches on the home screen, and will not load any game. Loading icon just sits and spins. Very annoying, but not surprising really. Worked just fine last night. 


    Have you opened up a bug ticket on Answers HQ? You can do so here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/bd-p/battlefield-v-bug-reports-en
    Additionally, have you checked for updated drivers, Windows updates, etc.? (No need to answer here, just make sure to provide full details in your Bug Report in the link above. Your login is the same as here.)

    We've already announced it will. You can find current details (more info to come as we get closer to the release of a lot of games on Steam)  here: https://www.ea.com/news/ea-and-valve-partnership

    Any chance of every game mode becoming available at all times once the final update has been released?

    They should go and play Call of Duty with their friends.  Or maybe Minecraft.  I wouldn't tell my worst enemy to play BFV nevermind someone I was trying to stay connected with during this time.

    why have you nerfed the rockets? now the AA guarantee kill you as you cant get away from them or destroy them in one pass.... you need to also nerf the AA and Flak, you have just ruined the flying on BFV completely.....

    well think its safe to say you have 100% ruined the flying on BF5 when it come to flak, fleiger and the AA they destroy you in seconds without even giving you the opo to return fire the rockets have been nurfed which is a big no to me.....sorry devs wont return to this game please dont screw the next bf up

    Let me fix that for you:
    "... you have just ruined the farming on BFV completely..."
    You are welcome.

    They have done something right for a change. Don't run this down just because the almighty planes are now more vulnerable - very positive K/Ds for the flyboys are still guaranteed.
    Let me fix that for you:
    "... you have just ruined the flying on BFV completely..."
    You are welcome.

    The last big update reduced splash damage of rockets so that they are not effective against troops, which was fine.... the Mosquito's main role in WW2 was to clear the ground from AA and Flak for a bomb run... now it can't do that.

    Hi Team.

    Thanks for the update.

    There were some promises about the anti-hack update. I can't see anything in the notes.
    I'm playing a Firestorm with friends for the last few months. Every day we see the same "hackers" coming into the game where their hacks are:
    - headshot from anywhere they shoot when you're in range
    - seeing players all the time
    The only way to win with such players is to find good vehicles and hope that we manage to kill them at the end.
    All their nicknames are the same all the time. We have reported them through Origin number of times in more than 6 months. Some of the accounts have now a few hundred wins and still playing with those ridiculous cheats. Is anyone looking at those reports? Why those accounts are not banned at all?
    Some players already left BF5 due to a number of cheaters. 

    Regards

    You may have misread the "Future of Battlefield V" blog a bit incorrectly. 
    The blog stated the team would continue to working on anti-cheat, but it didn't state specific things would be implemented at certain update points or times.

    You can each share your opinion - and that what it is - without the back-and-forth "correcting" each other. Keep it constructive, keep it civil.
