Honestly, I think this game is so far from ever being a good game in so many ways it's just non-salvageable at this point, and it would probably be a better use of time to abandon support for it and move every dev over to BC3 (or whatever it is gonna be) so we stand a chance of actually getting a decent game next time.
Think about it - BFV has so far seriously peeved off the following sub-groups of the community in a bigger way than I have ever seen previously on any BF release (and will probably never make it up with how much the game would need to be re-designed from the ground up to do so....)
- The "historically authentic" BF community (release trailer nonsense, muh wahmen in BF, wokeness etc). Those guys are long gone!
- The core FPS BF community (awful core FPS gameplay, terrible visibility, no rental servers, passive gameplay meta, Attrition nonsense etc). Players like myself certainly don't get much out of this game.
- The more casual "immersive war game" crowd (no maps or content, no epic / inspiring atmosphere & audio, lack of general immersive and addictive war feel). Doesn't bother me so much but I see this one as the biggest group of unhappy punters on youtube / reddit etc from comments.
I'd say it's a very small percentage of the potential target demographic of BF that definitely existed before announcement, that actually enjoy this game and play it regularly compared to previous instalments. In trying to please everyone, they've pleased no one, and the Firestorm mode has certainly not brought in a pull of new players EA were hoping for (given it's amount of twitch viewers the hype is pretty non-existent).
So for once I'm thinking they should just break the cycle of rushing games and trying to maintain them through the first 2 years to a point where they are just somewhat acceptable, and then inevitably being on the back foot again for the next game etc. It never makes anyone happy, I'd really just rather wait a bit longer for a decent game and have them give up on this one as a bad job.
Imagine if all the devs moved on to the next game now, it'd be awesome if we got a BC3 game in say 2 or 3 years, that actually released with the same polish and ready for release quality as say, Sekiro just did by From Software... y' know, where it just works and if people ask you to mention bugs from it you actually have to stop and think of some rather than 100 coming to mind all at once like in BFV.
.....who knows, maybe it's kinda happening already and that's why the support is so non-existent?
