It'll be really shit if they bring the red dots back on the map, I'm all for getting rid of the map entirely. Use your ears, the compass, cues from your team and your intuition to get kills. The devs should dig their heels in and ignore feedback from just one week of play, I hate it when any developer loses their cool and gets led by the nose by their playerbase. It dilutes their vision and ends up being this scrappy, messy design by committee on a massive scale. Players should trust the developers to do their jobs and make the game they want to make. I follow bands where they've allowed their fans to direct the album and it always ends up horribly. Same with games.

 

I did think how depressing it must have been for Infinity Ward to be on the receiving end of this madness after they'd spent so much time and effort making this amazing game. Only out for a fucking week and the internet is soaking its collective knickers because they can't get easy killstreaks anymore. Fuck me.

 

 

Battlefield 1 was ruined by the devs paying too much attention to YouTubers. Hopefully it doesn't happen here.

I'm only like 2 levels away, but I really can't wait to unlock the Pointman perk at level 49.  You are basically rewarded for playing the objectives - capping flags, collecting tags, assists, etc - and scores will now contribute to getting streaks.  Perfect for Dom, Kill Confirmed and Ground War.

 

Didn't know about this but sounds perfect, do you know which slot it goes in?

 

Spending another glorious day on this today, going to see how far I can level the 725 shotgun.

I think it's excellent. I understand the complaints about campers, but the 'battle chatter' helps once you know the maps and there are some tools you can use to help with it a bit too (plus the kill cam). 

 

Overall I'm happy. Even enjoying the campaign in an 'Uncharted walking-sim' kind of way. But for the set pieces rather than the story, the subject matter of which I'm not sure is handled especially well.

Well, fuck. How depressing. Fun while it lasted.

 

 

 

Agree with this guy totally. I'd hate to see Infinity Ward make some kneejerk fix for the jet pack fan boys. As he said above, I made a purchase based on the Beta and the style of game. If they then patch (fuck over) the game into something else its akin to a motor manufacture changing all the main characteristics of a car you've test driven on the day of delivery.

 

Just leave it as it is... I don't have an issue with anything in the game. I play a mix of Domination, HQ and TDM and even with TDM I don't have an issue with spawns. Being that I've not touched COD for nearly 7 years if they fuck up this release with knee jerk patches I'll never buy a COD game again.

There was a load of b/s with BF V in the first few weeks of release too, it was like they had no clear strategy for issues they just randomly fucked with things.

Any one try playing this crossplay with friends on xbox-ps4? Does it work easy enough with mics and everything?

Yep. There is some sort of bug where some people don't get added properly if their Activision name is in the wrong format for some reason, which is solved by changing the Activision name if this applies (even just to what it already is). It's supposed to have a string of numbers on the end.

I'm maining the 725 shotgun now with Overkill and the KILO 141 as my secondary weapon. The 725 easily has enough range for a one-shot kill across a wide street, unless they're sniping you'll always get the kill before they even pull the trigger. It's wonderfully brutal. At close range, forget about it, no matter what they're carrying you're going to win. You don't even need to be ADS, just a hipfire blast to the body is enough to bag a kill.

 

On Domination on St. Petrograd, the B flag is a brilliant spot for defending if you go to the upstairs windows overlooking the street above the flag. Defend the stairs with mines/claymores to stop anyone rushing you, the 725 will reach the opposite windows for a one shot kill and you can easily kill whoever is trying to take the base in one shot. You can feel the rage and fuming when they come back for a revenge kill and run straight into your mines or another shotgun blast to the gut. Everytime I take that spot I can bring in all three killstreaks - Counter UAV, Gun Turret, VTOL. Try it.:hat:

Totally agree. 

That clip of the 'pro' guy whining that he wanted red dots as all he does is see red dots on his map, go finds them, then gets his scorestreak was irritating as hell as that sounds a truly boring way to play. As you say this new build offers loads of environmental awareness whether it be the avatar calling out enemies (which works both ways of course), the louder footsteps, the other players shouting out enemy locations, etc, etc and that's not even including the various perks assists. Red dot chasing is idiotic.

 

 

Anyways, couple of gripes. After a 128 Gb install and a couple of 7 or 8 Gb patches in the last week it is really disappointing that the PC version still carries the day one bugs - the text, chat box persisting on screen if I should even accidentally press the chat key, a weird bug that randomly sees all game text, HUD etc disappear and which requires a hard shutdown of the game. Those are nothing compared to mission objectives being randomly wiped though. I amn playing a few of the MP missions just to encourage me to play with a wider range of weapons and so on.

 I'd been happily working through the various weapons one until the 'get 30 kills with pistol' mission which slowed me right down as pistol is so boring to play with. This meant I'd only use it a few times per match and, hence, it took ages to work through. Up to about 25 kills of 30 I equipped an optical sight that I'd earned and, without warning, it seems that reset my tally to zero. Possibly as the next mission is 30 kills with an optical sight equipped pistol. It has really pissed me off as it took days of whittling away at that mission using a weapon I hate. Since then, and even with the sight removed, my tally will not move beyond zero so I'm abandoning the mission. First world problems, etc...

 

I've alos just been placed into a queue to join battlenet then a queue to join the game (not an MP game, just the game itself) as the servers are , ap[apparently, under heavy load. Which seems a little amateurish.

 

Outside of those few gripes the gunplay remains absolutely magnificent.

That is an absolute shit ton of content!  Even the remakes are a great selection (though I really wish Afghan was included).  Hopefully a BR mode will also be added early 2020 and then this could well be the best COD of all time - unless they royally fuck up the season pass system with pay to win weapons.

I am loving this game. I was wondering what everyones favourite loadouts and attachments / perks are.

 

 

I tried something different last night based on a spec some guy out on YT. Make a huge difference for speed, I'll post it here.

That is 100% your internet @koefoed the max I get is around 30ms but it's normally around 10/15ms on a wired connection and that's with 2 of us in the house playing it (one on PS4 Pro one on PC)

 

Nope it is not. Every other game runs fine. Even Black Ops 4. Play a match of Ground War and just look how jerky both team mates and enemies move around. I thought BFV was bad but this is much worse.

It's your internet. If everyone was running around with a 500ms lag everyone would be in uproar.

Picked this up today, kind of forgot it needed a 30 min install then a 57gb update! How long is the campaign? Would like to play through that first.

 

The campaign lasted about thirty minutes for me, spread over three or fours sessions.  After that I quit and now wish there was an oiption to uninstall it rather than have it take up 50 or 60 Gb of space.,,
 

It is very pretty but very, very boring.
