@Sunset is that you!?
I am critical of the game as I have higher expectation & wanted the game to improve. The game mode has a lot of potentials, but there are a lot of areas to improve it if it is to be a proper long term challenger to other established BR games like Fortnite & Apex, instead of something that died of after 1 month when the hype is over.

Obviously the game is new & need balances & fine-tuning, & it's unfair to compete with BR games out for ages. People who quit prematurely are a serious issue (in people having fun) in squad IMO that needs addressing. I play Fortnite with fandom at times too, but teammates that quit prematurely happened far less often.

Also, the vast majority of players don't use a mic, & the in-game ping system can be improved further.

Personally I am divided about loadout. On one hand, it provides more consistency, as you can get the exact weapons/perks etc & it reduces the luck of looting. On another hand, one of the charms of BR is you never know what loot you get, & you need to be able to play with the cards you are given or make your own luck by looting more or killing more to get their loot.

There are improvements needed, but this game is no worse shape than Apex, and Apex is over 1 year old.

Here are some of my thoughts on changes and improvemts.

1.) One hit snipers have to go.
2.) Load out drop needs to be more expensive.
3.)PIng system needs some refinement.
4.) Audio needs fixing.
5.)Every dead body should drop 2 armour plates.
6. Built up areas like downtown have way too man y playable rooftops.
7.)Claymores, bouncing betties don't do enough damage.

I agree with all of your points. I wanted to add that there need to be accessible options in audio & visuals, like in hmmm.....Fornite. Not everyone has surround sound, can play with high volume or audible. Fortnite, for instance, has visual cue of footsteps & chest when nearby that is very useful where audibility is an issue.

Ping system could have a simple Yes/No instead of need to open a map, click on the ping to approve, which is slow S on the controller.

There is a lot of QoL in visuals & interface. Why is the map a greyscale? We are in 2020, not 1945. Also, The UI is so small, & all-white (again why?)& if you have a small TV screen like mine, it's a pain in the S to see what you actually have in my UI (particularly the throwables). Maybe better shape, bigger UI as option, or a magical thing call color will help.

To know where something is, like a shopping cart, I often need to zoom the map, Color coding key locations will be a great QoL improvement.

I bought campaign on PS4. I was shock how challenging the game is even on regular mode. Thankfully the checkpoints are forgiving.

its visually much better than the MP, probably due to lowering FPS.

Anyway not to be Negative Nancy, but it’s a bit disappointing that they removed aim assist in on PC using controller. What I understand is the aim assist is very strong on controller ( on console) & unless you are super pro with mouse aim like shroud, you will have struggle against controller players.

I have been re downloading the Pc version for 4 days now (at 700kb/s) Expect to finish by end of week , and I will be able to test if playing on controller on console better or mouse/ KB on PC is better.

I much prefer to play on PC, as it is more powerful, but I am not self handicapped myself due to input.

If it takes you that long to download a game, how is your internet even good enough to play online MP?

I live in a 3rd world country. So I have to make do. I check & it's not uncommon here for the download speed I experienced. Playing games has never been an issue. In online games, ping is more critical than bench width speed. In any case, I will upgrade once the quarantine period is over & things are back to normal.

Have to rant. After painstaking 5 days of finally downloaded the game, the tried to play warzone twice, crashed to desktop twice....I never had the worst experience on a game on PC for a while.

Edit summary:
Using mouse/KB is a disadvantage (shockingly) due to the strong aim assist from the controller on the console. Have a series of awful gulag runs with almost all matches lost.

Finally had a decent game &...game crushed. I think its a sign that that's the end for the game for me. I will finish the campaign & move on.
Also, CP point is not cross-platform. but Battle-pass is (which includes CP unlock)..... I have 500CP on my PS4 & Zero CP on my PC

Anybody having issues??
My game keep crushing on PC.
Anyway I finished the campaign. Super short but pretty well done. I haven’t play a single player game for a while and it’s ,ore chill and relax. The hardest part is shocking is security level where you give instruction t a lady how to escape. There is a part I was stuck for like 30 mins.

Price is pretty badass. But why is he still captain. He should be at least colonel by now.

A buddy and I just finished 3 kills a piece win. I got 4 wins now.

Any word what’s coming in the new update?
Content wise: New 6v6 map called Khandor Hideout. In Warzone they are adding 4 new common/uncommon weapons, EBR, MK2 Carbine, 50GS, and that over under shotgun.

In terms of fixes/changes, not got a clue.
