    They will be returning to Reddit, as I noted in my post over there.

    We absolutely want you to share your feedback. However, if you can't contribute something constructive to this thread - or any thread on the forums - it may be good to take a moment before posting and take a breath. If you decide to just "go for it", please don't be surprised if you get a little note from our Moderators. 

    While I definitely understand frustration, let's all remember this isn't an  excuse to break the forum rules - which mentions about spam, non-constructive posts, etc.

    Braddock, I'm sure this thread is going to get filled with a lot of nasty messages directed towards you, but I just want you to know that I think you're doing a great job. As an engineer at a small company, I sometimes have to do customer related activities: troubleshoot over the phone, send quotes out to customers, etc. Dealing with angry customers is a HUGE pain, it's discouraging. I know how you feel and I respect your dedication.

    I'm still angry about what has happened to BFV, but I felt some appraisal was due for your work.
    Thanks, bud.

    Hi @Braddock512.

    Performance on PS4 (EU) is still atrocious with missing hit reg, insta death, death behind cover.
    Audio still doesn't work i.e planes are still not making any noise when they go on a bombing run, tanks often run silent, enemy players have no footsteps. 

    Bug wise there's too many to list but the above are most important to me.

    While I understand that content will come to an end, will Dice continue to work on the many problems V has?

    #FRIDAYNIGHTBATTLEFIELD – Join your friends, enemies, squadmates, and lone wolves on the FIELD OF BATTLE!

    Why would anyone want to play in these servers?

    I might do this. There are only about 350 people wathing BFV streams on Twitch at any one time, so you'll have a pretty good chance of winning something, 

    And don't bother anymore with the Quality of Life Updates.  The quality of like of BFV is terrible and it won't get any better.

    I'd really like to see rent-a-server from bf3 come back. Bf1 also had a good system. This community game stuff is awful. Need to be able to leave a game running without the creator/host. Otherwise, you're waiting half the night for your 24/7 operation underground (b c you're tired of getting wrecked by planes as an infantry unit) to fill up

    I honestly credit him with keeping the game alive for so long(face it. Without a good CM, 6 months. Max.)

    Hi @Braddock512 Do you know when we can have a Battlefield game like BF3 and better, BFV is a lost cause, too many bugs.

    There were about 680 folks watching BFV this morning at 9AM PDT. 

    Thanks for your constructive and on-topic feedback.

    Gonna be honest - you've had some spicy takes over the last few months - and I know you've gotten a few notes from the moderators.
    That being said, thanks for the post. It's always been evident that you're passionate about Battlefield - and that passion is something I absolutely respect (I have the same passion). 

    That was a really detailed post - and a lot of the items in that list are things I've wanted us to address. Thank you for sharing it. I don't want you to feel that your post is worthless - I've been consistently/daily making notes to share with the dev team as they ramp up (even more) their efforts on the next Battlefield. We need to address (at least) some of these items for the next BF to be as awesome as I KNOW it can be. 

    Thanks, Slayer. 
    Please stay safe, stay healthy. 

    -Braddock512

    Out of curiosity, will fortifications be making a return in BF6? I really like 'em.
    And if not, is there room for discussion?

    Maybe just maybe community managers can create a big survey to ask the whole community what they want to see in the next BF? I mean I can't be sure if Dice actually listens to the feedback at all. But it's worth a try.

    That begs the question if these are things you as a Dice employee has been wanting addressed in Battlefield 5 why haven't they been? And if your urging weren't enough to get them addressed in Battlefield 5, why should the community have any hope they would be addressed in the next game?
