Man, based on the LFG feature on Xbox One, the game is already dead and has the same low numbers of people searching for a group as in the deluxe week, so the low numbers weren't just a deluxe early access thing.

As comparison, right now,
People searching for a group, worldwide:
Battlefield V: 50
Fortnite: 1700
Fallout 76: 200
Forza Horizon 4: 60
Black Ops 4: 430
PUBG: 100
RDR2, which doesn't even have a Multiplayer right now: 60

I just can't find people to play with which is crazy since it's a freaking pvp multiplayer game and even worse, one of the biggest, Battlefield! Crazy.
Hey i added you ;) Im always up for some Battlefield

I can only speak for myself, but I don't know a single person that uses LFG. It seems great, but everyone I know either has a crew or is ok with random matchmaking. Not sure that's the best way to gauge interest.

You know what would have been better than scrapping the campaign? Having another entire year of development to make everything about the game better. But EA needs their yearly shooter.
Agreed, but lets be honest, that was never going to happen. EA is very much of the mindset "release now, fix later". Unfortunately this seems to be a strategy being adopted by many publishers.

Fuck, this KE7 assignment where I have to kill 10 people in an objective zone in one life or 20 over a match is fucking hard. haha. Anyone got any good suggestions of mode and how I should play to get through it? Ive been doing a lot of Breakthrough, when Im attacking it gives me a lot of opportunity for kills, but maybe just an aggressive conquest might work better.

edit: Uhhh, My game seems to have given me credit for beating this. Maybe out of pity after trying for hours. haha

Once you have all the gold unlocks for a gun, there isnt anything left to earn is there?

Having Dice develop battlefield and battlefront at the same time is hurting their company and the quality of each title. Which isnt even necessary when they have multiple other studios like Criterion or EA motive or Visceral before they canned them that could have worked on one of these titles individually.

Oh awesome, thanks. Kind of a bummer that that's set up that way, but I'm that it's just me being dumb instead of being a bug.
I dunno, it could be bug too I guess, need elenarie to confirm I guess is it intended.

Also make sure to have your Mesh quality on Ultra. This helps a lot especially in aircraft.
If you want competitive edge you want to have mesh on low to see people behind boxes, sandbags and tons of other things.

Man I can't understand that. It is so easy to see the enemies...

What you guys want? a neon light on their heads? It is really easy to see them
Its EASY to see enemies?

Are you serious? Lol

whats your setup? Pc monitor? Sitting inches infront of it?

Iam just wondering how its EASY to see enemies in this game when thousands say its difficult. When the player has the same color or clothes as the map or waits in a shadow or lies on the ground.

I mean it gets better with time but the times i died without knowing where it came from in the beginning ... jesus.


Easy.

Should've pushed the game release to March...

Now we'll see if EA can treat this game differently than they did Titanfall 2 and Battlefront 2 content wise.

It is, I use it all the time for almost any MP game, even the PS4 equivalent "Groups" are the meat and potatoe for multiplayer games. I play Dead by Daylight on PS4 and groups are essential for this game and for finding new people, I couldn't play it without it.
And like the comparison shows, it's full of people for other games but here only 50, for this brand new game and that's nothing. Because half of that are from different languages and the other 40% are for a future date or older than 30 minutes, which means expired. So you almost have no options which is so unusual for a new and such a big PVP game.

I hope EA's marketing department get their heads out of their asses and just approach every major content patch as a big release.

I mean E3 '19 announce the start of the Pacific Campaign with a remake of Wake Island, and perhaps even a special Grand Operation centered around Pearl Harbor. With this played live by an orchestra:


Another million sales easy.

Try increasing brightness. Helped me.
I'll give that a shot. I'm sure part of it is always Graphics related because these games look so fantastic with so many particle and explosion effects which just exacerbates it. It'll be interesting to see how increased realism and graphics impacts being able to distinguish things.

I have only managed to take 32 dog tags off people so far and that puts me in the top 4%. Really shows you how much they nerfed melee. That said, I am really coming around to how melee works in this, feels a lot more like a last resort in cqc. Like my clip runs dry and I lunge for the melee instead of switching to my pistol now. As long as enough of your shots hit before the melee you will get the kill. Makes those kills far more satisfying knowing that I almost lost that fight.

Still working on the gold assignments for the MP40, currently on the one where I have to get 60 kills while attacking an objective. I keep playing Conquest/Domination but it feels like its still taking forever.

Any idea when the first map will be released? This is the first BF I haven't bought on day 1, but that's mostly due to classwork.

Looking at the road-map it says 'new location' in December-January, assuming this means a new map.

Oh god, the game just completely bugged out on me on that Cathedral map, the timer got stuck indefinitely on 00:00. The match carried on for another FOURTY minutes before the attacking team finally managed to blow up the last objective xD! Grand Operations being so grand that they never end. Probably the best Battlefield bug since BF3's giraffe heads ^^.

That 25 second "dramatic the match is about to end music" track looping indefinitely got kind of repetitive though.

Okay yeah this game broke as fuck and its pissing me off and I have only been playing for about 2 hours now. I just had to leave 3 fucking matches in a row because I literally could not deploy. No matter where I chose it kept saying "The deploy point you have chosen is no longer available". I Tried switching squads, switching teams, switching classes, etc etc. Nothing. I literally could not even START playing the god damn game.



Which wouldn't be that big of a deal if it didn't FOR FUCKING EVER to leave a game and find a new one.



WTF DICE
And now my game just crashed after trying 5 times in a row now to get into a game.



That's what you deserve for playing recon all the time ;)

Character / class customisation is separate between the factions.
Check if you have the same things equipped and also make sure you have the same combat role for that class.

Curious if you're actually having an issue with the gadgets being locked wrongly. Check the combat roles, please.

Is there a way to enable color blind colors for team mate symbols/enemies/objectives/etc? I can't find it. I know previous Battlefield had it.
Video settings, custom colour.

It still takes ages to quit a match though.
Current engine version limitation, unfortunately. :) Has to finish loading before it can initialise quitting.
Hopefully something we could improve in the future.
