In the first game I noticed this dude in the chat:

Then had a good game with some random guys:

I skipped BF1 and V as I didn't like the setting for 1 (and maybe V, can't remember) but this seems more like BF3/4 from what I recall. So many options and shit with the guns and characters etc, it's a bit overwhelming. The shooting works though which is the main thing.

Gave this another shot now it’s on Game Pass and got up to around level 50 or so, unlocked a load of weapons, attachments and gadgets etc. …and you know what? 
 

I still think it’s an utter fucking garbage Battlefield game. Can’t be bothered to waste my time elucidating why, but for a multitude of reasons I find it an often painful experience and when the still utterly brilliant BF1 and BF5 still have healthy populations on console I think you’d be fucking mad to play this crap. Such a huge fall from grace.

 

Yeah they’ve ‘fixed’ some things from its disastrous launch but you can’t polish a turd and as I thought back then, this is such a fundamentally poorly designed Battlefield game that there was never any saving it. The player numbers don’t lie and any bump it gets from now being on subs services will be short-lived I suspect.

I watched a video that explained all the changes made since launch. It looks almost like a different game.  I'm really into it. And as a PC player may I say I luuuuurve crossplay with consoles :D 

 

The difference between cross play being on and off is so stark, man. Anyone who says PC players don't have an advantage should be forced to play with a pad and see what they say after they get lasered in the head repeatedly match after match after match after etc

How long does it take to get to level 50…?

 

In Battlefield terms, not very long. You can't really make a proper judgement on a Battlefield game until you've played all of the maps multiple times and learned the choke points and flanking routes, properly leveled up some weapons with attachments, got to grips with all the gadgets etc. It's just the way these games are and have always been - very steep learning curves that don't reveal their subtler qualities until you're properly au fait with the many ways all the systems interact, and that inevitably takes some time.

I do absolutely agree that when playing on console it's night and day with crossplay turned off. Going up against PC players is an absolutely miserable experience but against a level playing field of other controller players it's a much more enjoyable game where you're going to have more of a chance to compete. 

 

I still think it's by a considerable distance the worst Battlefield game that DICE have ever produced, with some truly abysmal map design and far too much egregious chasing of the CoD crowd woven into its design. But with crossplay off you can have some fun with it and it does have its moments.

 

BF1 and 5 still wipe the floor with it mind.

I can't disagree with all of the above. It's not bad, it's just not a patch on BF1/V. There are two main issues I ran into - the grind to get decent weapons/attachments is far too long. But the biggest problem is that crossplay ruins the fun, and I literally can count on one hand the number of times I found a non-crossplay game. It kept launching me into lobbies with 4/5 other people who quit soon after. I even left it on a few times to see if it did ever populate - nope, never did. Why did they do it this? Why remove the server browser?

 

The times I could play with fellow XS people were by far the best games, it was actually good fun. But 95% of the time it was literally impossible to play, it just never found a populated game. All due to the way the game was made. Infuriating.

I’m not level 50 yet (40 something) and have played for a few hours each day since it came onto gamepass. I’ve done the weekly mission/challenges and get a bunch of ribbons etc each game so thought I was getting a reasonable amount of xp…

Had my first game on the map with the rocket launch last night, defending on breakthrough. Had no idea this map existed because the game browser does seem to love Taiwan.

 

Anyway, was playing, getting hammered, then I saw the bloody massive building in our spawn and wondered why no one was up there, so up I go with a sniper and spendthe rest of the match just spotting attackers and getting a few head shots until we won. My kills were in the single figures, but I came second on points with 90 assists.
