Battlefield V |OT| Band of Brothers and Sisters

I absolutely love Dice shooters. Gameplay/visuals/sound. All top notch, every single time. But god almighty, they’re so hilariously bad at things like tracking challenges, working menus, UI... etc..
Every damn time. Same with Battlefront.

The Last Tiger is easily the best story of the bunch, until they force you out of the tank and saddle you with more stealth bullshit. I don't get it.

Worse the challenges are bugged. Specifically reach AA undetected and don't repair. I did both of these but the game doesn't seem to think so. Googled around, doesn't seem to just be me.

You only have to stealth if you're doing the challenges.

Speaking of, my game crashed while I was going back to get all the letters and now I've collected all 6 yet it shows 4 out of 6 in the status. I tried going back to pick them up again and they're not there. Anyone else run into this or a way to fix it?

I was going to ask if you tried a restart Hjod but did not want to be that dick asking did you try a restart. Glad it worked and next time I will.

So I just want to clarify something. For whatever reason I thought Tides of War was a new gameplay mode. Is it really just these specific assignments tied to other already existing modes? Or is there a new gameplay mode I have not discovered?

Haha, I should have tried that before I complained to be fair.

I don't think there is any other game modes.

Kind of a shame that this game shipped in the state it's in. So many bugs and new ones popped up yesterday with the newest patch. Clearly, the game could have used about 3-6 more months in the oven. I think the game would have been huge in March (assuming BR would have been ready from Day 1). They had so much negative word of mouth coming out of the beta and from people that played it early with EA Access/Deluxe editions that it killed their success at the official launch. Hoping the game can recover and slowly start growing the player base, but it's got a ways to go. Game looks and plays awesome when you're not being handicapped by weird bugs/issues.

Are my squad mates and I the only ones NOT encountering more crashes and issues since the patch?

We have finished the Tides of War Assignments, and absolutely LOVE Panzerstorm... Fantastic map!

This. Haven't seen any acknowledgement of this. Needs to be fixed asap, and week one needs to be extended.

So doing the Honoring the Past assigment, I've killed probably about 50-60 people with the Gewehr M95/30 while defending objectives and its not counted one.

Have I got to be inside the objectives for it to count? I've been covering with a sniper and picking people off from distance.

Did they re add the reloading animations on stationary weapons? I was using one of the cannons on the new map and it was playing a reload animation between shots again and was so surprised to see it again, as I thought they were removed permenantly.

Well first, that's not my point. And second, why wouldn't you go for the challenges?

Really what I'd like to say is that I don't understand the creative roadblock which led to so many Stealth challenges in an Arcade style WW2 shooter. Stealth challenges are for Splinter Cell. I probably wouldn't have minded a Stealth challenge or even two, but they fit multiple across each War Story and it just seems uncreative given all the other things you can do on these big open story maps...

Looks like the patch completely wiped my progress in the second War Story. I have been taking my time with them (obviously) and was probably at least halfway through the 2nd one. Went to play it just now and it took me back to the very beginning. That sucks.

How are you supposed to deal with AA tanks playing like artillery? Can you deal with that? It's absolutely infuriating and makes me want to quit.

On breakthrough Hamada, I decided to just spot all game. They never made it passed the first objectives. I don’t think they knew what was going it. It was funny just watching a bunch of people die that I spotted. I think I killed like two people just because they stumbled upon me. We got top squad and I got +10k just from spotting lol.

That's a very nice skin, but man that's a pretty big FU to deluxe and standard edition owners.

I've used the M1911 as my main sidearm in like every BF game. Would have loved this on PS4

What’s the best way to play with a group of friends with 6-8 people? We always make two squads, and try to use the server browser but we sometimes end up on different teams with no way to switch teams like the old days. Please help!!!

Big fuck you to EA, it's so shit how people who actually bought the game keep getting screwed over.
You're goddamn right. Especially because PS4 players have zero chance to get it and it's also like EA applying extra salt into the wounds of everyone who bought the game for full price (or at least close to it, I paid 42€ on CDKeys for the preorder that went live on the 20th) when console players can already pick it up for 30 bucks.

And let's not forget how god awful, buggy, glitchy and unbalanced the launch has been. Literally the only big improvement to the game so far has been The Last Tiger for me (which was half of the reason I bought the game, to be fair). Some appreciation for being full-price beta testers that had to deal with all the shit would be nice.

Also, while we're already at it, the auto-balancing in this game is still something else:


Autobalancing in BF1 not only actually did something but the Leviathans at least motivated to stick around for at least 70% of the match even when losing hard, rather than just leaving like rats fleeing a sinking ship (understandable with odds like on the screenshot, I did quit right after too).

I've heard they removed the 50% promotion on Origin? Was going to buy now since my premier just went out. guess I'll have to wait, hoping the deal will show up again.

This "heal your teammates with 400 points using a health crate" is the worst challenge of Tides of War. Nobody bothers to pick up health crates. Played Frontlines for an hour and only got to 88 points. The other challenge in the tree - use ammo crate - is just as bad for the same reason. No skin is worth this kind of tedious grind.
