    sure it was not promised at launch but to have it coming into the game over a year later and keeping it at coming soon, then to top it off flat out ignoring the question to when it will come and just saying "its coming soon" is not just frustrating its down right insulting to anyone who paid 60-80€/$ to pay a AAA game that has been handled like a closed BETA since launch.
    -we are going trough the 3rd broad weapon rework in a year.
    -visibility has been changed from really dark to self-illumination
    - attrition ( a system no one ever asked for ) has been watered down to the point of non existence in terms of ammo and the abundance of health stations has made the health attrition nothing more then a boring chore
    - combined arms was praised as a almost procedural generate experience in your own promotion of the game! not the same missions over and over on the same maps
    -firestorm is next to dead anyways
    -bugs issues and glitches have been so abundant in BFV its down right baffeling
    -deadlines have not only been missed some were just canceled altogether (5v5 mode)
    -team-balance which was promised as top priority in december/january 2018-2019 is still in a state worse then it was ever in BF1 and we already told the team back then
    now i know you are not to balme for any of that but you must understand at this point that the community is tired of this and why the studio at large is not making a statement in the likes of " we know BFV is in a poor state and we have heard you clearly this are the issues we are still facing (insert list of top 10 COMMUNITY ISSUES distilled from the surveys) and we are going to keep you up to date on our current progress on the fixes and implementations you want to see"
    i mean at this point no one has any hopes for BFV to have a comeback like BF4 but at least show the fan-base that is still loyal that you as a studio care about us. because quite frankly i believe many feel down right disregarded at this point. be more transparent

    what has US holiday got to do with anything, Dice are in Sweden. Also check out Reddit, alot of unhappy players getting fedup with this game and lack of fixes, instead we get stupid valentines day clothing, WTF. Fix the game, bouncing tanks, crappy sound steering, low vehicle sound, hit detection, half empty servers due to unbalanced servers, servers that will not populate, need i go on...
    Considering I'm the one that writes up This Week in Battlefield, having that note on the calendar was to explain why This Week in Battlefield V was not posted on Monday. 
    Update 6.2 is currently being reviewed - ensuring that the fixes in the notes are checked and verified  - then it will go through Certification. Once we're in Certification, we'll be sharing details on the changes, fixes, and tweaks coming with 6.2.

    We need 6.2 ASAP, Team Balancer. Anti cheat for PC users, bug fixes,updated road map, authentic cosmetics, more guns,vehicles, Americans in Europe maps and Russian all in that order. Tell the dev's to stop with the Valentines day stuff, stop with the weird looking elites , stop with the crappy weapon skins and stop with the stupid easter egg's. Fix the game already!
    Different teams work on different things. The skins, Elites, and Easter Eggs are all on different teams than the folks that drive the fixes, changes, etc. We've shared the details of the content coming in Chapter 6 with the Chapter 6 overview - that includes the weapons, vehicles, etc. 


    My bad. Just read the entire thread. No roadmap as of right now. :(   So can we expect one in the near future?  Thank you 

    i mean DICE has yet to put in tank-body customization that has been promised at launch and was a huge point in their god-awful marketing. 

    This has already been announced to be coming with 6.2. (And it wasn't promised to be available at launch - I know it's been "Coming Soon" for a long time, which is frustrating.) 

    How about some news on progression or what's in the works/plans. That's what the community really would like. Thank you for your time
    Can you clarify what you're referring to? Are you meaning ToW/Chapter progression in Community Games?

    Just seems like the people who are in charge or assigning ppl to do certain things needs to prioritize things better instead of wasting time on boring skins or cosmetics that aren't great quality or authenticity... Fixing the game should be a priority right now(still.....). Gameplay is so boring. Normandy needs to arrive soon!

    but how are they gonna earn their live as a studio if they do not produce these "meh" looking elites
    they already did when they ripped us off with the deluxe edition.... 

















    I am one of the idiots who bought the Deluxe Edition, and to this day I cannot figure out what I got for the extra $20 I WASTED.

    A recap of my (supposed to be) relaxing night on BFV:


    Game 1: respawn glitch on 3nd death, had to back out
    Game 2: placed on a team of 14 being dominated by a team of 31
    Game 3: respawn glitch again after being killed by  tank, had to back out
    Game 4: lost a game of breakthrough on Iwo, pilot on the other team went 124-0
    Game 5: respawn glitch halfway through, had to back out
    Game 6: respawn glitch AGAIN, had to back out


    yeeeaaaahhh I think I'm done for the night (or maybe the month)

    Hello Braddock512
    May I point you to this official post from EA 

    https://www.battlefield.com/news/battlefield-5-rotterdam-trailer-breakdown

    "datePublished": "2018-08-17T16:00Z[UTC]",

    "dateModified": "2018-08-17T13:17:21Z[UTC]",

    These shots, and similar ones that appear throughout the trailer, are a quick display of the arsenal of customized vehicles and aircraft you can collect as part of The Company.

    Coming after launch for vehicles is visual customization, too

    It implied that this would be sooner rather than later. Not 18 months later and still waiting.

    It gives no timescale, so it just presumption on all our parts.

    Too right - it said "Coming Soon" not "coming next year" or "TBA" or "coming in 2020" - Soon kind of implies that it would be within the first 6 months at least - I hope DICE never try and do a live service again because it's gotten to the point where DICE wont even give release dates anymore because they've missed basically every deadline they've had. Next battlefield needs to be at least finished by launch and I can't believe that's not even a given

    The more I play, the more I understand the anger.

    Solomons is a great map, and I have to say, I have enjoyed it the most, but the basic issues for me on XB1 is team imbalance that never gets resolved by the next match, weapons imbalance, and complete ineffective weapons.

    Also the other side should not have 4 tanks and none on our side.  If so...at least give us anti tank weapons that have some effectiveness.

    Again, as Assault I threw EVERY anti tank weapon available to me at a tank and it barely did any damage.

    As a series, BF has the best "feel" so I stick with it over CoD.  But I am going back to BF1 so I can actually enjoy playing again.  I eagerly await 6.2 to see how the revisions take.

    I know different teams are assigned to different things but wouldnt it be smart for whoever the project manager/ dev manager is to assign the help that is wasted on the skin's, elites and easter egg stuff and have those workers work on actual problems with the game to get them to work faster? Idk me as a manger i look at the priorities of the studio is really all over the board and has no direction at all. Just seems like it could be managed better IMO to get the things that needs fixing fixed then work on the extra's later.

    Johnkapa1 well put!  I can't imagine someone getting excited about playing all week to win a tank top shirt.

    All these weapon skins....who cares?  They don't change the function of the gun and can hardly be noticed.

    I can't believe this game has been out for well over a year and so many issues still.

    The developers best efforts so far has been the new maps...LOVE the Pacific Theater!  All they have to do is fix the bugs and weapons, and nail down team balancing...and the game would be really good.

    In the games industry (as with many, many other industries), there is specialization. 
    Map designers aren't weapon designers, so their specialization is different. Graphic artists aren't gameplay engineers, so their specialization is different.
    It's like working in a big kitchen - you have your various chefs:
    • Sauté Chef/Saucier (Sauce chef) – This chef is responsible for sautéing foods and creating sauces and gravies that accompany other dishes. They report directly to the head chef or sous chef.
    • Boucher (Butcher Chef) – They prepare meat and poultry before they are delivered to their respective stations.
    • Poissonnier (Fish Chef) – They prepare fish and seafood. In smaller kitchens, the boucher often takes on the role of the poisonnier.
    • Rotisseur (Roast Chef) – They are responsible for roast meats and appropriate sauces.
    • Friturier (Fry Chef) – This member of staff prepares, and specialises in, fried food items.
    • Grillardin (Grill Chef) – They are the king or queen of all things grilled.
    • Garde Manger (Pantry Chef) – This person is in charge of the preparation of cold dishes, such as salads.
    • Pattisier (Pastry Chef) – The master of all things pastry, baked goods, and desserts.
    • Chef de Tournant (Roundsman/Swing Cook/Relief Cook) – This person does not have a specific job, but rather fills in as and when needed at different stations.
    • Entremetier (Vegetable Chef) – They prepare vegetables, soups, starches, and eggs. In larger kitchens, this role may split into two: Potager, who is in charge of making soups, and Legumier, who is in charge of preparing any vegetables.
    You don't take the Boucher and expect them to jump on vegetables - as their skills, talents, and experience are not on vegetables. Just as you wouldn't take the Garde Manger and put  them on the rotissery. 
    In an environment where specialization is critical, you generally don't force that person into a role they don't know/have no experience as the results could be worse. 
    You don't want an anesthiologist performing brain surgery, nor do you want a podiatrist as your pulmonologist. 


    There are plenty of jobs where "grabbing everyone to do the thing" works, but in specialized fields, it actually is less efficient and less effective to do this.
