Title: BF 2042
Post by: Phil Ashio on 04:21 PM - 06/09/21
Cool trailer but I gotta admit, I actually loled. People are shitting themselves with hype over it but I think we've been around long enough to know that all those sick shots of dudes mopping up other dudes by the dozens and jumping out of jets to rocket launch a tail and jumping back in is what the majority of players are going to be on the receiving end of not dealing out.

If anything, I actually like the honesty of the trailer that it's shot from the perspective of the team that's absolutely getting dunked on. Because it's funny how after all these year Dice still hasn't figured out team balancing, not even in their own trailer. LOL!

The one thing the trailer doesn't show is the reality of the gameplay. Which is: spawn, run for five minutes, get sniped by some dude in a bush five miles away with a 100x scope wait 15 seconds for a medic that will neve come, lather, rinse, repeat.

I felt like we didnt learn that much about the game yet lol, waiting for the gameplay in 3 days before making up my mind.

Jumping out of a planet and rocket-killing a plane behind you is called Rendezook in Battlefield and i remember that it took me like 10h of practive and trys to pull it off just a single time. There are people who can do it quite consistently but thats just too hard for me lol. Either way they added it as some sort of meme, its more of a joke for some BF veterans than an actual ingame feature.

But for those who take it serious, it might be time to brush up your Rendezook Skills haha:

Jumping out of a planet and rocket-killing, was my favorite thing on BF4.

MP focus is great; wonder on its life service success.

It looks pretty for the reveal, the game won't look anything like that for anyone will less than a $5000 PC.

I have so many reservations.

I guess I am waiting for it to appear on EA Play before I play it.

Much as the reveal cinematic looks great, it still won't be my cup of tea.

I've been a CoD fanboi for a long time. I love its twitch, arcade-style gameplay, tight maps and scorestreaks, but like many CoD vets, I've become frustrated with the franchise over the last few years and would love a dev comp to step up and take over the reigns. I was hoping Respawn would do it, but they're focussed on BR, like many others these days. I can't see BF ever taking over from CoD, either. Battlefield is always going to be slower than Call of Duty, focussing much more on strategy, patience and vehicles than CoD, resulting in a very different experience. If BF were to try and emulate CoD it would lose its identity (just like Call of Duty has done in trying to emulate Destiny and Battlefield, etc.).

I might try it out if there's an open Beta, but I can't see Battlefield 2043 becoming the CoD killer. Unfortunately.

On the topic of how combat feels, until Bad Company Battlefield was more arcadey than COD. But yeah, if they released an old school style BF these days the fans that jumped on the bandwagon with BC2 and BF3 would lose their @#$%.

Real old school: Battlefield 2.

That's the caveat for game devs, they can't put all the eggs on the basket of that players generation who more likely they don't have the time to invest in the game like before. Finding the right balanced to pleased old players and be atractive for new ones is it's biggest challenge for Battlefield franchise, CoD had mastered this.

Im just happy its NOT set in the past, and the ping system appears to be non-2D. Im also so jaded by game hype now that im not watching any further previews etc because its the only way to not be disappointed in a game nowadays

I like that the gameplay trailer demonstrated that you have more mobility options as infantry now. Ziplines and grappling hooks should have been standard since Special Forces. It looks like everyone's doing Doom Eternal grapples now.  And on the field Crysis style weapon customization is also welcome.

I like them showing examples of solving two really annoying situations in BF, which is trying to climb up a crane to deal with a sniper's nest and crossing from one building to another as infantry.

Two things that would give me more faith that Dice have finally learned what makes BF a chore and how to fix it. Optional - so you can wait for a medic if one is close by - instant respawn (obviously not on squad leader) and the ability to request at least an ATV drop for when you spawn on an empty base.

The other thing i hope changed from bfv is the randomness of people running around everywhere in games that arent team death match..

As with any AAA FPS, I look forward to it. It's always nice to have something different to play. That being said, my personal preference is playing Tarkov with a buddy. There's just no other experience that can touch it right now. But hey, Hardcore realism isn't for everyone.

Hi There! Any news on M&K for PS5? Is it working? If not, will XIM find a way to make it work?
Cheers

Playing it on X1X and gotta say, the potential is there but the game is so janky I feel they need to delay it another half a year. Maybe different story on current gen consoles.

On PC, mouse aim is weird... like XIM weird LOL

I have only played a little of it like 3 games.

I used the BF5 ST and it was acceptable. Not perfect, but acceptable.
I reduced the deadzone in game for right stick to 10

Instead of adjusting my BF5 config in Xim, I just adjusted the game to work with what I had,   the ADS is a little over sensitive and although there appears to be no aim assist menu, I certainly felt some AA when I played a little with controller for a few minutes to see how it felt.

Now I am about to try it on PC to see if my PC performance can match that of the XBSX , I doubt it some how.

As suspected XBSX wins the war against a R2700X 32GB Ram and rtx 2080ti   :-)

Do you get 120 FPS on series x? I didn't see the option on the ps5 version
Title: Re: BF 2042
Post by: AgentSmith on 04:39 PM - 10/08/21
No there is no option of 120 spf and I am sure dice said they can't do 120.


We can only hope
Maybe they will add a 1080p performance mode later in the games life.

Doesn't matter anymore.  This game sucked so bad.

Oh right yeah that sucks for me, I find it difficult going back to 60fps again I'll probably give this one a miss anyway. Didn't even get to try that beta as it was so short

How to avoid disappointment in any new game release

Ignore everything shown at anything like E3
Don't watch any previews
Don't go anywhere near forums talking about it
Go in as blind as possible

There's more tears created because of pre-release hype than anything else. Stop the pain. #neverpreorder

Also, don't play a major triple A game within a 6 to 12 month release window.
