The game is just starved for content. I don't expect BF to be a live service game like some that have new things every week, but we need some more maps.

It doesn't help that the default maps aren't great. Adding a big vehicle map plus Operation Underground hopefully soon will help.

Dice is doing this thing where they don't announce anything until right before a patch comes out. It is weird. People are hoping for Metro next week but who knows? I get that they don't want to announce anything until they are sure it is ready, but they just hide everything now.

I played a little bit on X1X. Netcode still feels hit or miss. Had one server where I constantly had the bad connection icon. I found another and it seemed better. Not being laggy all the time is an improvement.

It is also kind of sad to see matchmaking take "several minutes" according to them. Hopefully Metro brings a bunch more people back.

Underground looks awesome! Loved me some Metro back in the day. Hopefully they get the network issues ironed out (yeah right) cause I’m loving this game when it works. Just needs way more content, and some private/custom servers

I'm having a blast with Underground. It is total chaos. There's plenty of flank routes so it doesn't seem too campy. If you get pinned down by LMGs, find another route. Basically every class works great except recon, which is my kind of game. Granted I did run into some P08 recon players too.

After playing something hit me. Is this map a lot smaller than Metro? Seems like the underground parts of Metro was a lot longer and they took out that big part in the middle before you go outside.

Might have:

“A spiritual successor to Battlefield 3’s Operation Métro, Operation Underground is a true passion project when it comes to level design. With our original designer of Métro at the helm, Operation Underground keeps the former map’s intense close-quarter combat in a highly recognizable environment and removes bottlenecks that could make a match stale. In addition, new flanking routes and gameplay dynamics are added to double down on the fun.”

Played a bunch over the weekend, wicked fun.

I think they redesigned it from Metro to avoid some of those massive shooting lanes. I haven't played Metro in ages though. Even though it is compact, there are always 2-3 flank routes.

It is funny, I was never a huge Metro fan but for some reason I really like this.

Don’t get me wrong I had a good time played it over the weekend. Just afterwards I started thinking about the old map then it hit me that the remake seemed smaller. Looking forward to playing it some more this weekend.

my first match on offense I went like 17-3 we won. On defense I struggled.

Just played the new map today. I really enjoyed it. Played as medic. I think I went 17-9 and revived 20 people.

People on Reddit are getting the top score on Underground while having zero kills or deaths. Apparently they just use recon flares and get tons of points just by finding a bunch of targets. I guess it is easy to do, but it is funny seeing people 0-0 on top :)

Yeah you can do that on a lot of the tighter maps. Just park your ass near an ammo dump/crate and fire off flares.

Oct 31st. There's an island at the end of the trailer that looks a whole lot like Wake Island (one of the greatest maps ever in the game)

It indeed is Wake Island that was confirmed awhile back. It will be coming to the game with that update. This actually has me a little excited even though the base game is really bad.

The game was in a terrible state this spring and summer, but lately I think it has gotten a lot better (in my opinion). They have reduced a lot of the terrible bugs. The netcode feels decent now (not perfect of course). Just adding 2 maps has gotten a ton of people back, which shows that all we need is more content to have some fun.

It is worth checking out again IMHO.

I haven't played the game since launch because IMO it was really bad. So a little glad to hear it seems to be turning around.

Yeah it’s gotten a lot better in the past few months, it’s just too bad that it’s at the same time as some really good games have been dropping 🙁

I'm glad I played this through Origin Premiere and didn't spend any money on it directly. Actually the case for Anthem as well. Hoping Fallen Order is good otherwise yeesh.

Yep, sadly Wake doesn't come out until December I heard (which in Dice time is probably spring 2020).
