It's pretty bad if you compare what you can now for $60 compared to what premium got you.

People would bitch, but even if they cost of epics didn't scale as with boins, at least you'd have access.
I think you meant:

It's pretty bad if you compare what you can now for $60 compared to what premium got you for $60 + $50.

Of course he did not. It's Pint. He's a little troll.



But yeah, overall, it seems a bit unfair that things you can buy would also be unlockable later for free. And also that the outfit prices are the same regardless of the number of items or if you aerady have one of the item unlocked (like with the head piece for final countdown that most of us probably already own).

BTW, i caved in and bought the premium thingy. It's not really worth it. Chrome finish weapon skins where already obtainable before (and already looked ugly). The vehicules skins are boring. The Cool Hand Duke outfit is just a variation of the Wild One outfit with a weird head gear (by the way, both outfits are variations of the Wanderer outfit we had for ages) and while the Demolisher outfit is decent, it seems like it's just refurbished allied clothes put on a German soldier and the torso is not available for the girls. Wich is unfortunate. But we also get a bunch of boins so there's that.

I would be much more down to buy boins if we had at least a few new maps. I don't count Panzerstorm as new and Firestorm was announced way before it came out so theres practically been no new maps since release. I doubt we'll get more than 5 maps in 2 years if Battlefront is anything to go by... It's such a shame because the potential is limitless but playing the same maps over and over is infuriatingly dull and for some reason they have small maps releasing in a few months as well. The design for this game is all over the place.

So I just now reinstalled the game, and went into Firestorm.

Can you guess what happened?

Timer to join a game timed out at 5mins lol.

lol.

edit: even CONQUEST takes this long to find a game???? (PC) over a minute on the quick find option wtf

First game I play is a draw just because the timer ran out, what the fuck is that?

Second attempt at Firestorm is another 5min time out.

Second attempt at quick find Conquest also failed.

Was finally able to join another Conquest game, but Firestorm has failed 4 times already...

edit #2: another Firestorm queue timeout, I can't even play this mode... I've tried over and over and it always fails at 5 minutes and 3 seconds.

By the way, i'd love for them to finally fix the finicky revives.

I've got killed so many times trying to revive someone because of it refusing to trigger. When it happens you are forced to find te correct position or something for it to accept to work and it usually mean you stood in the open for too long and a bullet then find you in the middle of the animation.

I mean, if you see the revive prompt and press the correct button, it should trigger immediately. Not recquiring you to fiddle around the body until it finally accept to work.

Playing a medic actually trying to revive people can be a nightmare sometimes because of that...
 
Actually it was 299.94, so you have to forgive me the 6 cents. And I would’ve bought more, but my local mom&pop was all out of PSN cards and my wife had hidden the credit card (which she had every right to after I used it the last time to buy 2900€ worth of FIFA coins), so lucky for me ☺️
Of course he did not. It's Pint. He's a little troll.
That’s Mr. Pint to you buster. And it’s big, not little 😠

€300 isn't so bad considering that I have spent €4000 on the Garden Warfare 2 packs.

I hate the changes to gunplay they introduced. I am losing so many encounters I used to win. This is garbage:

"Changed the way camera recoil works. When firing, weapons are allowed to go a bit more off center now. The true point of aim will follow the weapon and is not fixed to the screen center. "

"Changed the way SMG and assault rifle dispersion increases while firing in ADS. The second, third, and sometimes fourthshots(for low rate-of-fire weapons) are now more predictable while later shots are less predictable. Also shortened the time it takes for dispersion to decrease when no longer firing. This means short bursts are a bit more effective, while long bursts or mag dumps are a bit less effective "

SMG's in particular are way less effective again. And I regularly miss shots because my barrel isn't center screen.

The gunplay is still great in this game, only problem I found is that visibility is still garbage.

I tested this so many times just going prone and watching enemies run past me near an objective. It's crazy that they still haven't fixed that.

I hope I can get into a Firestorm game tonight, cause last night was bullshit, timed out 5 times. They should make it so the queue can run up much longer than 5 minutes before timing out.

300 grenade damage in Firestorm?
5 melee kills in Firestorm?

Who is the dumbass making these tasks? I am sick of the bullshit assignments that:
• Ineffective during the normal gameplay
• Will lead to many deaths when pursuing them
• Requires 10s of games to pull off
• Aren't even entertaining or amusing

Don't do them? Every multiplayer game with challenge lists is full of nonsense ones to make you waste time and extend playtime.
They put all the progression behind these shitty challenges unfortnuately. Especially the "do it in one life challenges". Theres a lot of shit in the game you simply wont have access to because you're not doing this hyper-specific shit. Paying to skip stuff didn't seem all that insidious in past games because you'd eventually would get it over time, but not here.

I personally don't like how we have all these players not playing properly (by "properly" I mean doing their best to win) just so they can complete challenges. I can skip the challenges myself but that doesn't stop them from still hurting the quality of gameplay.

On the bright side I now know I can have final fantasy 14 and battlefield 5 firestorm running at the same time on my computer.

I had to find something to spend my time when you die during the first minute of gameplay, then wait for your friend to finish his round. aka : god do I hate the lack of revive options in firestorm

That kind of response can be used to anything because it bypasses the problem. Even though it is fun to shit on BFV, most people in here still play it or are interested in it. Improving assignments and creating a system where players enjoy doing them should be a priority. How about assignments which encourage a correct play: a long-range sniper kills, a close-range SMG, MG suppression, placing mines, hitting vehicle criticals, pinging enemies, paradrop within 100m of your squadmates, stay within 100m for 5 minutes etc. Nope, lets have 5 melee kills in the mode where melee shouldn't be used in the first place.

The downed state in Firestorm is stupid. It feels like when you have a drunk Drake or Witcher sequence, where the camera just sways and the game doesn't expect you to do anything but observe. I doubt anyone will ever retaliate from the downed state, it is just frustrating. The animations aren't even implemented....

Seems so. The dude who datamined it, did previous datamined and what was mention did happen in game. So far, his track recorded is legit. Of course theres always a chance he could be wrong.

Mining seems to comfirm what we pretty much knew from the new road map, that chapter 5 ( Fall, which in Dice term usually mean mid December ) "Awakening the giant" will be about the Americans and Japanese.

Now that I've been playing Firestorm with headphones and gotten more rounds in, I'm really enjoying it. I just wish i could find more semi auto rifles with scopes, I'm so used to that from regular gameplay I need it lol

Literally just happen to me again this time in reverse, same green sniper rifle, hacking fuck was about 40meters in the firestorm, i am about 20meters outside the storm fighting a squad, I had full heavy armor was dead in 2 shots, and once again i can't report the player, hackers can do whatever they want, sheeeesh Dice get your shit together.

I think I'm liking Firestorm more than Apex Legends at this point. Probably a combination of the art style and gunplay. Apex is a bit too cartoony for my tastes. It also feels like the circle moves pretty fast in Firestorm so games don't drag on too long. That was always my biggest complaint with a game like PUBG.

So uhm... did DICE really just started to hide the Ping number on screen?

I jumped into Firestorm and didn't see the 130+ ping that I always complained about since it indicated that we in South America didn't have servers for it. I said yas! we finally have servers! Played and felt a bit weird with some shots.

All right, never mind, so I went looking for a Grand Operation match. No SA players there so I went into a 137 ping NA server and surprise, no ping indicator on screen either. You have to bring to scoreboard to see that indeed I was in 137+ ping.

So what the fuck DICE, that's the equivalent of throwing your dirt under the carpet. You thought no one would notice ? How will I know if I should stay in a server when I've had 200+ ping matches in Firestorm?

Cant believe grand op is still so broken. You win all matches. Then Conquest happens you are winning by 400 tickets yet the time runs out because its a not a full server.
Then for some reason it ends in a draw and Final Stand happens. And if you lose that you lose the whole operation. Its freaking bs.

It's because there is too much leavers. Each time a round is a bit too much one sided, half of the losing team leaves during the round. Leading to this kind of things. And the more you lose, the more they leave.

But the worse for me is when you are on the top squad of the winning team during the first two rounds and get switched for the third. Thanks Dice ! I indeed worked really hard to lose this match...

Leavers are a big problem on this type of games. Like in Frontlines where there's only 16 players on each side : the moment one guy leaves because the team dared to get pushed back from a point, it's a downward spiral because you're in inferiority and you can bet your ass you'll get pushed back again and a few others will leave as well, worsening the problem where you end up trying to defend the objective at 8 versus 16 or 15. It's frustrating to no end.

I don't mind losing matches normally. But when it's because you get switched to the losing team at the last moment or because your teammates refuse to commit to anything, that's another story.

Stop leaving guys ! Please !

I always leave when the teams are stacked..
BF1 auto balance after each round, in BF1 i would find a server and play with friends for 2 hours straight on that server, BFV lol.
Another damn feature Dice has to add...

BFV autobalance after each round too. Maybe not when you select a specific server on the server browser (dunno, i never use that) but on the quick match playlists, it's autobalancing after each round as well. But since there's so much leavers, it fucks everything.
