BF 2042
« 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.
