Got BFV for a Xmas present from my son. Been busy with RDO so fired it up yesterday and played TOW for about 4 hours after reading recommendations at BFV website on how to set up BFV to play.
While reflexes are still good, being close to retirement I know they aren't as quick as they used to be. But I enjoy Battlefield because it wasn't all fast pace action. I could thrown in some tactic planning and succeed. Only a breakeven k/d ratio so I will never claim to be great but I play the objectives and my roles as support or healer. If I'm squad leader, I assign flags, etc.
Lucky if I broke .25% kd ratio yesterday. Half my deaths were by sniper, I say 25% was by players I couldn't see straight ahead of me and the rest, my KE7 just didn't seem to kill quick enough. Felt like so many 1 hit deaths by all kinds of guns even when I had the drop on players.
Players running all over the place. So many teammates that I saw use cover seem to die by sniper as they checked to see if it was clear. Just like me.
Also every TOW match I played I was on the losing side for four hours straight. Went 0-15 one match and I have never done that.
I certainly don't mind how games evolve/change but I wonder if I've been passed by completely with this game.
Just playing support for now as I try to learn the maps so if there is a recommended gun or guns to use for support as I rank up, I'm all ears. Also any recommendations for specialization for those particular weapons would be appreciated too.
And any settings suggestions for controls, display etc. I'll be looking for suggestions on YouTube videos also.

And of course if you can run with a party of friends its a bit easier. Currently I only have BF V on Xbox while I have BF1 on both PSN and Xbox. So if you want to play BF V on Xbox and play on the weekends during the day feel free to add me.
Hope this helps.

It is age, stop kidding yourself. Eyes, reflexes hand eye memory. Most of the time most of you old goats cant even remember where you left your ammo create.

Play TDM. The players are generally less skilled than in other gamemodes and the maps smaller. A good place to learn and improve. I got good playing BF4 for 300 hours 5 years ago.
Use a an easy to use gun and since you're trying to get good focus on one range for now. The easiest is close range, hardest is long range. My recommendation based on having been a noob 5 years ago and the frustration still being fresh in my memory, use something that excels in close range and stick to areas where close range fights happen. Play as medic so you don't have to worry about health. Even for close range you want a gun that's easy to use, maybe the Sten.
Do not get frustrated. Some rounds your team will be much worse than the other team and there's nothing you can do about it. It happens. Yesterday I played a round of conquest and we were steamrolled, I finished 27-12. The next round I finished 66-6.
Play defensively. Don't camp! But let them come to you. Especially if the other team is stronger. If they're stronger than your team, where ever you are in the map you'll be outnumbered. So play defensively and let them come to you. Find a high traffic area and defend it. Listen for footsteps or look for 'x' on the minimap where friendlies died.
The best thing someone told me when I sucked 5 years ago and I came here to the forums to vent was very simple but helped: Learn to stay alive, the longer you stay alive the more opportunities you'll get to get kills.

I'm with you here mate. I was already in my twenties when I was a master of Quake II, but these days, I'm a lot slower. BFV follows BF1 with it's spray 'n' pray/sniper-camper gameplay, although BF1 had some middle ground.
What makes BFV worse for me is the ridiculous jumping and ADAD spam. Watch some videos on youtube and you can see gamers who have an ADAD spam macro programmed to activate when they're standing still; there's no way you can ADAD spam that fast manually. Beyond about 30m, ADAD spam results in players teleporting from side to side because the server and client are too slow in updating, and, well..., I could go on for hours.
Bottom line is, Battlefield games used to be more than quickscoping or spray 'n' pray. I loved Planetside 2 for it's wide variety of play styles, but it also had friendly fire which meant you had to have good trigger discipline in close ranged firefights. If there were multiple friends and enemies (which was often), spray 'n' pray would just get you weapon-locked quickly.
Biggest problem is that the game doesn't work properly, and you sound like your one of the lucky players who always seem to be half a second behind everyone else which means you rarely get the chance to react before 'zip-ping' one hit death from an SMG 80 metres away. Sadly, there's nothing we can do about this because the game is at fault. Go play something less frustrating until (if ever) the game gets fixed.
