I am liking this game a lot more than Battlefield 1.

I do want to get back to the modern era though at some point.
The next one will. I think they will skip vietnam and move to something a bit more modern.

Given how they are doing ToW they could do a Middle East centric game starting at the gulf war and moving through the decades cumulating in the Afghan War.

Bad Company 3 with a Gulf War setting and the SP is kinda like Three Kings. With modern warfare MP.

I might be the only one, but I am way burnt out on desert/modern games. If you want to go modern-ish, stick with fictional Cold War stuff. Nato vs Warsaw Pact. (read Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising).

I think Vietnam could really work. There was a BF Vietnam game and it was pretty terrible, but that really wasn't the setting.

Could do.

The Middle East was just an example of how ToW could work in more modern day skifmishes that don't hold the breadth and depth to carry a ToW narrative type live servive.

February patch looking decent.

Frag rifle nerf
Semi auto rifle nerfs
KE7 nerfed
spawn beacon placement fix
TTD fix and lots of overall network/packet fixes/changes/improvements.
More vaulting improvements. Which looks very good going by the video Dice showed.

They still do a poor job with communicating. They are getting better, but they still forget to tell people little details, like when the patch actually comes out. They are getting a lot better, but still nobody ever seems to know for sure when patches come out.

That it isn't true. Each patch has been given a specific release date. Reason for not knowing this one is cause the patch notes are a leak, but have been confirmed to be accurate but incomplete by Dice.

This patch will also bring the co-op mode Combined Arms

They really need to work on the cosmetics. Is it too much to ask that each class would at least have their own color schemes/themes for weapon unlocks, and for the love of god add some new trash to the armory. Seems like it’s the same swill in there since launch.

Supposedly visibility is getting an undocumented change this patch too.

I’m looking forward to playing Rush. It was one of my favorite modes to play in previous games.

I can't believe they made it limited time, though. But trash like breakthough is here forever.

Anybody played the co-op mode?

I saw a Jackfrags vid of co-op and it looks so boring and unintresting. Also, it doesn't have matchmaikng going by what I have read.

I had high hopes for Firestorm, but the poor content this live service has given has drained all that hope away.

Hopefully the fans complain enough that they keep Rush permanently. It’s strange to not keep a mode that has been in since Bad Company that I can remember.

Can you blame it being free for how they have handled post release content instead of a paid season pass?

I'm sure they'll look at the numbers and see who's playing what. The only issue is they don't want to make too many modes and thin out the players. Hopefully there's more than enough people but you don't want to get into half empty game modes.

I'm the opposite of most people. I like Breakthrough. I never cared for Rush but haven't played it in forever obviously. I'll give it a try now at least.

Yeah they don’t look all that interesting. Really though, how hard is it to just make the SP campaign co-op from the get go?!?

As of right now it looks like this game is only getting one new map of Greece. 4 months, 1 map.

I realize their battle royale is releasing soon but i don't play that.

I haven't touched the game in a month. Is anyone still plaything it?

Haven't touched it since Squad Conquest came.

I f***ing hate live services, they are all trash.

I haven't touched this in a few weeks either. It isn't that I don't like it, there's just so many other games to play.

Plus some of my friends didn’t stick with it beyond a few weeks/month. We had a big group that played BF1 for awhile. For me there are just too many good MP games. Hard to find time to play everything.

I think the problem has always been that BF is a hard game to just pop into for a quick game. The matches last a long time and I feel like if I don't have a solid 2 hours or so it isn't worth playing.
