Today, I decided to go back to BF4. I hadn't played it in several years. Here's how it went..
I log into some random server and the first thing I see is some German guy calling Jews pigs (which by the way, is punishable by law in Germany).
This guy gets reported at least twice. Nothing happened, he kept playing that round and the next one.
Fine, let's concentrate on the game. I got killed uh... maybe 4 times less than a second after spawning?
Anyway, I quickly remembered why I stopped playing. The game is awfully strangely unbalanced.
Let's say no one cheats, right? Just...random things that simply don't add up ... some guy killing you in one shot with an MG from the other side of the map.
I thought, well, that must be a fine weapon he's using. So I switch to it to find that it is quite useless - bad range and low damage.
Other odd cases? Someone killing me while looking at the opposite direction.
Or how about the part where I immediately get killed when people go around corners? That must be some pretty damn good reflex there.
Now let's put a little bit of context. I've been playing battlefield for a very long time.
I've owned every title since BF1942. However, I won't be purchasing another EA title for a long time.
It's not good value for money, knowing that a tonne of people are cheating or being absolute ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in the game and nothing is being done about it.
Especially considering that EA seems to intentionally make it difficult to report players.... and even when you manage to do that, nothing happens.
