Long standing bug, might as well be a feature....the quit button is basically worthless. DICE should recommend the use of Alt+F4 instead.
Current slight engine limitation. It has to finish loading all resources before it can start quitting, if a load process has been initialised.
Done so for higher stability and reliability. We want to improve this, but since it's about quitting, it has a low priority currently. :)

Yeah, i've always suspected the stutters i sometimes get when i get the awards of the match i just finished were in fact due to the next map immediately starting to load in the background.

Ahh, while that's part of it, I was dealing with it seemingly bugging out with the loading of the map, just remaining on the quitting screen forever until I manually altf4. It is just a minor gripe, I should just be altf4ing at this point but I'm stubborn about ending it properly.

Spent some time levelling the tanks up to 4. One game I got 40+ kills with the AA, I feel dirty for the amount of pain I inflicted on the poor infantry. Breakthrough so I just kept to the spawn. I still hate the system preventing you from changing the unlocks till 4. I was stuck with the 3x Oerlikon 20mm which I overheat way too much for my liking.

Had another on Rotterdam where a few of us faced a particularly adept group of flanking squads while defending. Very enjoyable duelling with them, the back and forth sparring on the flank as they sought to strike the killing blow on our main defense, who's busily warring with the bulk of the enemy, it always makes me feel good when I can provide significant tactical support to the rest of the team.

The weekly update by Dan Mitre over at the Subreddit is really disappointing to be honest.

Game has been plagued by bugs since release and I'm already starting to get bored/tired with it (I'm only level 31, bought the game on December 22nd on sale 50% off.) I feel the lack of content is also affecting it, as well as the subpar weapons skins...

I'm wondering how many players we've already lost since release. That next patch better be fucking phenomenal...
Sadly I don’t think we are going to get significant content until March. I don’t think the modes are going to cut it. They also didn’t think their progression tread mill through. I am already at max level everywhere except for the vehicles. There is just nowhere to go for me right now. I am not interested in vehicle gameplay and gold skins are not the most rewarding thing.

IMO it’s better than it has been in previous BF titles and I agree that there are other areas that definitely need to be prioritized above this one.
Edit: releasing a list of DICE’s priorities for fixes with a timeline for completion would be appreciated by me and I’m sure others in the community as well.

I just read that the BR mode will be squads only. If that is true than RiP because I don't think all the Twitch players will play this game constantly with 3 other people. They probably want to play solo for the most part. And lets be real, the mode would need to be big on Twitch for a while to bring in new people.
It sounds exactly like Team Deathmatch from BF3, just with no spawning.

I heard that as well. Pretty much squad death match in a sense from BC2 iirc.

Lol what?! TDM is still two factions. Squad Death Match in BC2 you mean but this is still on small maps where not much coordination is needed and you spawn and respawn with equipment. How can you people compare BR to that?! lol Releasing Firestorm as squad only is a HUGE mistake.

Squad deathmatch, that's what I meant. There was a 4-team mode in BF3, no?

So I've played for a few weeks now, medic sucks everyone knows that but the thing that really annoys me other than the plethora of qol and bug fixes needed is the lack of vehicles.

I don't think it's just my perception, they seem to have made a concerted effort to

a)nerf the shit outta vehicles
B) lower the amount of proper offensive vehicles (tanks, not sniper bait personal carriers,)

Even on panzerstorm I feel like regular ass bf4 maps had more tanks out there.

This is the first BATTLEFIELD (Been playing since BF 1942) that I have stopped playing so quickly.

No progression and lack of maps has killed it for me.

Same for me. I found myself going to other games because these bugs are just unsupportable for me. I cant progress anymore, i cant even do tides of war shit, i dont get any CC. My grand operations never unlocked. Ive been playing battlefield since 2 and im done with these buggy messes.

Dice, this is why you never, and will never beat COD. Ever. Your games are always a disaster at launch.

Sorry dude but is not the same kind of game, but I'm with you. THIS is the most stupid Battlefield ever made, and deserve to die with all people involved.
As I read before:

  • Company Coin being broken for Level 50 players.
  • Weekly Airlifts being worth 1/5 what Deluxe Edition players paid.
  • All the Bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs bugs bugs... bugs.
  • The Terrible User Interface (just add a black background to the text FFS)

and more, but remember... "We're looking into it"

Could you imagine if BO4 launched like BF5 did? Progress doesnt work, plethora of bugs, cant unlock new stuff. This unacceptable.

Lets not start these type of comments. I do agree there is alot of problem and the game should have been delay. But those type of comments are uncalled for.

COD is the same engine after many years. Battlefield is another story.
DICE always wants to throw everything on the grill, with quality and current graphics. The problem is EA, It is the same fear that many players have with Anthem right now.

My goddddddd

Trying to level up Medic in this game is basically just getting kicked in the balls over and over and over again.

Literally watching my stats, W/L, score per min, K/D all go down the drain because DICE does not have a single competent or intelligent dev on their game design team or anybody who bothered actually playtesting SMGs.

Edit: LOL, just checked the score and I'm first place on my team as a medic. Which means I got the DICE special of completely nonexistent matchmaking too, because if you're 1st place on your team as a medic your team is flaming garbage

They should be releasing patches bi-weekly. They need to fix this ASAP. They dont seem rushed at all about it.

Has anyone in this thread played Black Ops 4? If so, how is it in terms of bugs / glitches / gunplay / netcode etc?

I swore off CoD games after MW2 but this game is so buggy and DICE is so incompetent that I honestly thing there's close to a 0% chance of them actually fixing any of the major issues and I'm back to looking for a worthwhile shooter. Already canceled my Origin Premiere sub from auto-renewing and listed DICE and BFV as the reason.

Biggest thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on BO4 is the fact that there's a season pass, that shit is gross but so is releasing a literal Alpha as a paid final product soooo, BO4 impressions go!

Black Ops 4 problems come from the stupid ass specialist abilities and awful maps. It plays exactly like every other call of duty except it takes 2 or 3 more bullets to kill people.

Oh I didn't realize there were individual characters with different abilities, is it like Overwatch style where they're all cooldown based etc? They're poorly balanced?

The maps are mostly classic maps, which i like. The game is also super polished. When i try to unlock stuff or rank up, i can. I can even prestige if i want and not be stuck at max rank for 2 months. You know, just revolutionary features.

I think they are poorly balanced, yeah. One of them can whip out a little drone that shocks you for a good 4-5 seconds. You can shoot it but while you are shocked your aiming movement is slowed down so much you wont be able to

Laughed at the bolded. I've been trying to imagine any of the COD teams having completely broken unlocks for months and just saying "fuck it, we'll figure it out eventually or something" in response.

I hope Dice overhauls the assignments to all be tracked simultaneously and in the background. Aside from trying to pad play time, there's no reason you need to select them, work on only a few at a time, or do them sequentially. It's all so hilariously restrictive and backwards, it has to be the result of a programming issue and not an actual developer decision.

Yea the classic ones were pretty fun to play. But it's hilarious we have to even have this conversation, DICE sure is unique when it comes to being unable to fix their games

BO4 is great. Lots of content and good maps. Zombies had a lot of crash bugs early on but that seems to have been fixed now. I also like their Battle Royal a lot. So far my favorite iteration of the mode.

LOL So I just got a new glitch where the scope on my LMG actually rendered upside down, if you look closely at the top you can even see the glitched out zeroing dial.

At this point I just am ready to drop this game and have no real expectation of DICE ever fixing ANY of the glaring and completely unacceptable issues and lack of overall polish. I just can't imagine the sheer level of apathy and disrespect for your customers and fanbase that DICE has going on at their studio. Idk if they just saw PUBG's level of success and figured they didn't need to QA their game either or what.

I really think it's time for EA to close down all of DICE's studios and just keep a core team of their engineers on board as Frostbite tech support so they can continue to work on the engine itself and just help out the other studios using Frostbite (ie: Anthem), because BFV immediately following SWBF II (which is still riddled with bugs and balance issues this far out from launch) has made it so abundantly clear to me that they can't actually make a functional *game*.

It's a great engine at least.

Given that I value both the time and money I devote to this hobby, please explain to me how being displeased about a game being objectively buggy, poorly balanced, and unpolished for >1 month (and >1 year in the case of SWBFII) following launch is irrational?

No argument on the stopping playing it part, which is a conclusion I already reached.

And I have two dogs. I'd be a lot more upset if something happened to them :(

I am incredibly curious what Dice has exactly coming on the 17th. If it's a lot more of nothing I guess I'll be back in March.
The 17th plays a pretty big role for my commitment to the game too... Although, Resident Evil comes out shortly after, then Anthem and The Division 2.

If BFV remains a mess then I will just continue to ignore it.

The number of bugs are really starting to get to me. I've had health packs that don't heal me and health packs that keep repeating the animation when you receive one. I've been killed by snipers that have sniper glint one shot and then none the next. Ammo and health crates fall through the map. The one where your screen just goes black that was also in BF1.

I understand EA forced DICE to release this before it was ready but that doesn't make the bugs any less of a pain. The game right now is just way too frustrating.

Being displeased is one thing; accusing devs of disrespecting their playerbase or getting heated that they go on vacation are another. I get it, the game is buggy, and you spent $60 on a faulty product. But I just think it's neither productive nor worth the effort to get pissed off over a game that at the very least gave you several hours of enjoyment (if you weren't enjoying yourself, why did you put in a lot of hours?). I also would not begrudge people of their vacation/holiday. It's not like DICE is forcing you to play their game or making you pay more to keep playing.

And yeah, maybe taking a break is the best way to go. See how the game is in a couple of months when DICE have hopefully had enough time to get their shit together. For me, the bugs don't detract from my enjoyment of the game; the gameplay loop is great, and I think I've put in enough hours to feel that the money I spent on the game was worth it.

Anyway, I didn't mean any disrespect with my original comment. I have a dog too and would be also crushed if something happened to him.

Jackfrags released a video titled 'battlefield 5 12 months later'.

Its so depressing how right it is, most of the stuff should be fixed, qol improvements and hopefully have a much larger map rotation and guns/gadgets. BF4 was a shitshow at launch and turned into my favourite battlefield...eventually.

There is a great game hidden underneath all this shit, that's the most infuriating part. If it was just absolute shite I wouldn't care. It's always "the hope that kills you" I guess.

Once medics get a better weapon, us medics who have been in training for the past month are going to be steamrolling dudes. Smokes plus an above average weapon is (hopefully we get one) going to be beast mode.

Yeah, since the SMG buff, my medic has been pretty solid. I'm at least rank 19 on all infantry classes, and medic has the highest score/min with a comparable K/D ratio to my best classes (assault and support).

That's more you just dominating because you're better than your opponent than the gun actually being good though lol. SMGs are statistically garbage. The Suomi and Tommy Gun are the only two that can't get outgunned at every range in terms of TTK and even then they are only good up close. You can do well with them by outplaying your opponents but you'd do even better if you used a better class.
