    About combined arms: That this bot shooting mode affects all your stats is so rediculous. You should understand the possible longterm implications of that. What if you add, or players create a competetive mode/server wich has kdr requirements? I have been part of clans which has had that. Those inflated stats combined with the level cap set at the current 50 (wich me and most of our platoon reached after about one week) there is no way at all to gauge another players skill. This need to change.

    It'll balance itself out. Even if you inflate your k/d to an absurd number, it'll go down if you can't maintain it in multiplayer.

    So it isn't an issue in my eyes.

    What about it?

    You barely get any XP from Combined Arms. If someone manages to go from level 1 to 50 from CA, I'd be amazed.

    It doesnt affect my statistics. K/D and everything else is the same after playing combined arms tho you can complete some weapon assignments which is ok.

    Right completed 2 easy combined arms and didnt receive my COMPANY COIN. Really are we gonna do this all over again. You must have some morons working for you doing this crap. The mode itself is a practice round with bots shooting back. If this is what you guys do in your time you need to look for other work because this is the most boring crap i have ever played and waited on. One big fail after another. Sort the COMPANY COIN issues and make it a bit more fun also add matchmaking duh. You really built this up to be good and holding back on maps, factions and all the rest you promised for a pile of trash called combined arms lmao. Just no. 0/10 marks for ea/dice.

    You really out did yourself this time. Not in any way good.

    This week's challenge, to unlock the Stug, feels frustrating to me. To me tanks still feel noticeably weak, especially against infantry. On Panzerstorm I was in a Churchill and was pushed all back to my spawn from F because a single assault player kept firing panzerfausts at me and resupplying faster than I could repair. I couldn't kill him either because I had the artillery specialization which is all kinds of inaccurate and was a splash damage hit marker machine. I also wish there were a playlist that only had Panzerstorm and/or other vehicle heavy maps in rotation for conquest, similar to the BF1 map rotations. For a weekly challenge that's so heavily focused on tank gameplay, I just want to play on the map that has highest amount of tanks possible to play with, not just constantly backing out and searching for Panzerstorm over and over again. Having played for around two hours now on normal rotation, I'm still grinding away at the Can Opener and Tank Ace challenges. At this rate I'm really not looking forward to the Armored Fist challenge. Hope the Stug doesn't cost too much CC...

    i reached Chapter Rank 20 during Overture and I got the golden dog tag of overture, but i didn't receive the skins of the weapons from Rank 14 to Rank 20 .(including two skins for planes, two skins for tanks , White Tiger Skin for AG/M42 and Outfit Dead Man's Hand) i have contacted the advisors, the specialist team and the Supervisor in EA Help, but they said they have no access to add skins form their ends. Also they asked me to post it on the forum.My case ID is : 46802400 (the Supervisor asked me to post it as well). i hope the dev of Battlefield V can see my post and help me. The dev can find Overture Gold dog tag which proves that i did reach Rank 20.
    The list of the things I lost:
    Chapter Rank 14: Spitfire Mk VA Airplane Body HELLGRAU.
    Chapter Rank 15: Bf 109 Airplane Body MEDITERRANEAN DESERT.
    Chapter Rank 17: Panzer IV Tank Body ZITADELLE.
    Chapter Rank 18: Valentine Mk VIII Tank Body HOMEGUARD.
    Chapter Rank 19: Ag m/42 Weapon Set WHITE TIGER.
    Chapter Rank 20: Soldier Set Dead Man’s Hand.
    @EA_Alexander Please help me!

    Did Dice forget to imply the changes to Xbox? If there is netcode changes it is to the worse. Instakill is more present now than before.

    Tried to lie down on the floor in Devestation yesterday. People literally stumbled on me still.

    I've never commented on any EA forum. Overall I love BF5 and I think you've done a great job.

    However, wow! Major disappointment with combined arms. If you were a car developer and you were building a car and you hadn't attached the 4th wheel, would you release it? OBVIOUSLY NOT. You had some issues at launch and your patching has been great up until now. You were improving an already great game with every patch and then this huge, embarrassing and complexing step backwards. It's sad how bad it is. It makes no commercial sense for you to release such a horrible addition. You have a great product and then you voluntarily insert this mess. Come on! Surely the devs absolutely hated the fact they had to release this and it's just been pushed out by the exec team in a completely ignorant move to boost sales or something? Mr/Mrs Exec, you just devalued your asset massively. product = way worse, outcome = massive self-inflicted PR blow.

    The fact that it counts to stats and unlocks for weapons is a MASSIVE slap in the face to your core (core, being the most important part of something!). Yeah I know no one really cares if I unlocked the full gold skins with the MG42. But you know what, I care. It was bloody hard to do! Now any numpty can load up combined arms and get it with little to no effort. I don't want to be rash but, it's absolutely stupid. Like actually dumb. Surely there were people in the EA meeting saying how bad this idea was. I applaud you whoever you are.

    Hotfix this idiotic, strategically dumb and plain stupid aspect out of the game ASAP please. Surely there's smart people in the room! There is absolutely NO REASON combined arms should count toward your online stats!

    Either this was an oversight (hard to believe as it's a huge oversight!) or an intended feature. If it's an intended feature it holds ZERO merit and is damaging to your commercial prospects. Hotfix it out NOW.

    Or, the best thing to do, patch combined arms out, apologise and either never release it again or work on it until it is worthy for release.


    PS (Did you accidently release the trainee developers mock development project?)... Sorry guys. I'm not happy. Just fix it.

    This update has made the game worse! Sick of sliding everywhere when prone, getting shot through walls more often, getting stuck on rocks is a major problem on hamada, need a new map, servers are still the main issues. Cheaters and hacks. Really need to sit down and go play bf4, bf1 and look at what's done in those titles so you can actually maybe figure out what needs to be done here. You have a month left before firestorm and if u can't fix this multiplayer by now what the hell kinda issues will firestorm bring. More of the same crap or bigger issues. Every time you try to fix something with a patch something else gets screwed up. Need a team on these problems 24/7 cause the game is unplayable. It's not unfixable but instead of one big patch a month do small tweaks weekly. Gotta get this sorted out

    Not happy with the light tank nerf.

    Now one of my favorite light tank set ups is completely useless against heavy tanks.

    Heavy tanks could always just about 2-3 shot me dead.

    With auto-cannon I had to spam 100s of rounds , maneuver around , hide , heal and perhaps get a kill.

    Now I can't even damage them AT ALL .

    Not happy with this patch

    Company coin issues again. 2 games of multiplayer and i should have occured 150cc then 225cc but only got 150cc.

    Combined arms is also bugged with company coin issues. You simply dont get the cc reward for completion. Typical

    "Forever messing up since 2002" needs to be 1 of your titles lol

    I have uninstalled this game, why?

    (1) cheating is highly prevalent, and EA/Dice do not seem to invest the needed resources to rectify the issue. This makes the game, as a new player, absolutely unplayable. I am so frustrated. It is not fun anymore.

    (2) I was very much looking forward to the co-op mode to bypass all of these cheaters, but sadly, it is not designed for solo players, as when you initiate gameplay, all of the enemies start moving to you, and I sense that the gameplay would be far smoother if a squad of players was involved, BUT there is NO MATCHMAKING ability, so you can't even invite random people to play with you. Hence, this doesn't work for me.

    I feel so disenfranchised with this game. I bought the deluxe version and pre-ordered, and this game launched with HUGE bugs, and then went on 55% sale just a month or so thereafter, and the weekly airlifts were very poorly selected for the extra money that I paid.

    As I a new player to the Battlefield series, I won't buy the next one, and I am seriously disillusioned with EA's approach to this game overall. Very poor launch. You lost a customer, and I am not going to renew my Origin membership.

    Very disappointed.

    I enjoy the update for the most part, except when I die I get what I call "epileptic mode" that is not an insult but my screen goes nuts spinning and flashing and it legitimately hurts my eyes. I also feel as though the medic class guns need further nerfing/tweeking my friends and I get practically sniped by medics with smg's. Lastly as much as I like that you're trying to adjust the dmg ratings on some of the rifles I feel as though it's gone a little too far, at 10 yards when someone gets shot 2 times in the chest with a high caliber rifle they go down lol, I shot a guy today 5 times in the chest at close range and he ate the rounds and killed me, not cool man LOL. I would like to say overall I am having fun, however I do wish there was a way to level my planes without having to fight off baron von richtovens flying circus LOL

    After playing several different game types today, I have some bones to pick haha. The centering of this week's objectives around vehicles is fun, BUT they don't spawn nearly enough, also the panzer 38t is way O.P. it's super fast takes A LOT of damage and feels nearly impossible to destroy. I also would like the planes to be a bit more balanced the British planes are way too fast/manuverable to compete in dog fights, whereas the German planes seem like I am shooting at a flying Abrams tank with a deflector shield. I also wish that one assault guy can't hit my heavy tank or fully leveled smaller tank once or twice and absolutely wreck me. Please please please balance things out there is a happy median here somewhere lol anyways TY, E.A. Dice please keep up the improvements☺
