The new weapons are dull as f***. The M1 being the exception.

SMGs are still trash I see. Medic needs a good gun. And A2 tommy gun variant isn't it.

Pacific storm on breakthrough is a mess. Can't hear footsteps. Can't see anybody. It is nothing but Snpers and Garands.

Can't even play conquest on new maps. Only 1 server has Al Sundan or the 2 new maps and it is always American and full.

This is absurd.

What did they do to this game? I spawn with no gun and am blown up instantly. The M1 is useless. The pistol does more damage.

Leaves seem to be bulletproof too which makes attacking kind of hard.

IDK, I’m finding the M1 to be decent, especially with the hip fire perk. The 3x(?) scope good at range and the hip fire perk really helps closer to medium in those WTF moments.

I've probably been playing COD with its overpowered guns that have an insane low time to kill. It always seems like I so 80% damage to a target and then die to an SMG or something.

I swdar man. Dice are hell bent on destroying this game.

The December update is messing with TTK over distance and basically making your gun a nerf variant at range. And the are adding a dumb passive 3d spotting diamond over your head if somebody looks at you.

It is if Dice thought, WoW! We are not getting much hate right now....i know, lets piss the community off.

I just watched the jackfrags video on that and those changes are mega stupid. Who even asked for these changes?

Wow, that's beyond disappointing. They are taking the couple of things that were hated from BF1 and putting them in BF V. The TTK was fine the way it was, maybe even a little too slow. The rifles at range were already pretty weak. You could easily just run around, get shot and take cover and not die.

The 3d spotting only happens at 15 meters so that's not horrible, but also totally unneeded. They fixed the visibility long ago making player models stand out. I never have trouble seeing people, at least since they fixed the lighting (the days of hiding on the ground on Devastation are fixed).

I know who's asking for this though - Reddit. There's a group of players who LOVED BF1 (Clearly it was their very first BF game) and they want that game back. Of course Dice listens to them and not those of us who have been with the series for decades.

I really might be done with the game and the series. As someone who played since BF1942 beta, that's kind of sad.

I’m just glad I only payed $25 for it last Christmas. While I have enjoyed small play sessions, this has been my least played BF game ever.

Yep. I can see the player base taking a big dive after this patch.

lol well this will be awkward then...

After playing Modern Warfare since launch, myself and a couple others decided to check out BF5 last night (Xbox One) and had a blast. I played the game on PC with Origin Premiere when it launched and it was alright, but didn't put much time into it mainly because of lack of content. Going to the game now after time spent in Modern Warfare was such a a nice change. I enjoy the fast pace of COD, but with the camping, claymores, shotguns, and terrible P2P servers, it just pissed me off more than anything.

Just playing the game via my free EA Access month so not sure if I would continue with EA Access if there are enough games, or just grab BF5 if there is a good sale on it.

Right now the game is good when playing the Pacific maps, it actually feels like a BF game.

I agree, playing island defence on the Pacific maps has been great and is rekindling my love for bf, although sometimes the netcode would be absolutely atrocious one day then great the next.

Can't say I have had that.

Only real negative I have right now is how few medics there are. I'm running round reviving and healing like a crack addict trying to get home to hit its new rap, but I have to die 100 time to see that little medic symbol with the distance counting down, and then they just run past you. Like WTF!. Then you have to die another 100 times before finally getting revived.
