last few games of my trial, i could not select any gadgets or weapons, was stuck with a DMR i couldnt change... this better be fixed on launch

I had that happen once or twice, but quitting the server and finding another fixed it. Yeah, they definitely need to fix it, but as soon as you join if you can't see the options, just quit out.

Still had 3 or 4 hours left on my free trial, but I decided to buy it now so I get the preorder bonuses ahead of launch at midnight.

Played some solo matches against bots earlier, good way to learn the maps and try out different gear.

Did they do something to the assault rifles? I was carving up with the M5A3 even lots of medium range kills.

I think I'm done with this game. With the small content that we have I feel like I am playing the same maps over and over again. Breakthrough was fun for awhile, but it's now become a meat grinder mode. The most power vehicle in the game is the damn hovercraft. The funny thing is I think I enjoyed riding in the hovercraft more than anything else in the game because it felt like being on a alcohol fueled joyride.

I am just going to wait this one out and revisit it after several patches. This game needs actual servers to join. This whole matchmaking process doesn't work for Battlefield.

The hovercraft needs a massive nerf for sure. It is on their list. 2-3 hovercraft can just wreck any advance. And of course people can sneak off behind a hill and spawn one and completely shred you. The anti tank launcher needs a buff too. There's really no practical anti tank strategy other than maybe the hacker guy plus C5, but it is hard getting a full hack on something, even then they can usually just run away.

I wish they'd just disable the hovercraft for now.

It is MS. There are a few games now where crossplay is forced on Xbox but not on PS.

Yeah I swear maybe they toned down the bloom or something? ARs feel a lot better now. I'm dying to the M5A3 a ton more, although that could just be more low levels using it.

I actually turned cross play back on, makes match making super quick. Racked up an insane amount of XP in a couple matches just resupplying and healing teammates in Breakthrough. Hopped in a tank and spotted enemies in the spotter seat for nearly a full round for 25K XP, pretty sweet.

I played a little with the second DMR / marksman rifle. It is really nice, two hits to kill. I'll have to try the ARs out again.

Been using Boris with the turret, proxy grenades and ammo box. I'm a nonstop assist machine. Love it.

I'm still not fully getting all the hate. There are bugs no doubt. I had the revive bug once. Just had to lie there for a couple minutes until I timed out and was able to get back in the game. People are complaining about hit detection, but I've noticed teammates who do not have a friendly indicator over them. I think it is more of a teammate bug than anything. I think people are calling the bloom hit detection problems.

The bloom needs to be toned way down, and the overall balance is pretty bad. None of this seems to justify the Cyberpunk type response to it. I'm not constantly running into bugs. Most of the time you join and see a bug right away, just back out and find another lobby and it works fine. It isn't constantly ruining my games or anything.
