Decided to buy BF4 yesterday (PS4) because I had never played it and fancied a bit of modern fighting instead of BF1 for a change.
Man, I am sorry to say this but the difference for me was like night and day.
BF4 plays so much better, the weapons actually kill the enemy when you get the drop on them, rather than my usual experience in BF1 of emptying half a mag into someone only to be one-shotted back.
I actually stand a chance as Assault in BF4, something that literally never happens for me in BF1. I have never been great at Assaut, but I also knew I was not that bad of a player, and BF4 has proved that when the game is balanced properly, and works like it should, I can actually do ok.
I feel at the moment I am going to shelf BF1 for a little while and play BF4 instead, there seems to be nowhere near the same level of frustration.
I know BF1 is still a relatively young game, but evenly balanced play should be in there right from launch date, and it does not seem to be.
