Battlefield 2042
« on: 01:37 PM - 01/04/22 »
I preordered this game, finally got around to playing it yesterday. Sadly, this game seems to be complete garbage! Is it just me? Is anyone enjoying this game right now? The graphics and maps are really completely unacceptable. I'm playing on One X though, my Series X was gifted as I rarely played it anymore. Sadly even BFV puts this game to shame.

...back to PC and Tarkov!

EA's next flop after Anthem. A complete disaster this game. Not worth talking about, just forget it.

Oh man I thought you would share a config for the game, it would be much needed. I love the battlefield franchise so freaking much that somehow I can still sometimes enjoy this game, but it's maybe the biggest dissapointment of a game title in 2021, especially how it was teased/leaked.

Yeah, BFV was also trash but is actually a solid game now too. Hopefully, this is the case down the road. I do have a config but I through it together rather quickly. I should be able to post something over the weekend. As stated in some other threads, I've been playing purely PC for the last 6 months so coming back to console is giving me some fresh perspectives. Trying to get as close to PC as possible, taking advantage of AA of course but also limiting it to not be over powering.

I've had a hard time getting a config together that feels good at all ranges in this game. To me it feels like acceleration is always on.

Good luck

I didn't play it the first month but only after the first few patches. It still needs plenty of work (bug fixes, scoreboard, voice chat) and more content but I see a lot of potential in it. I can't find another shooter that has this much potential released in the last year so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.

I prefer the 64 player modes over the 128 player modes except for times when I have a good squad of four all on mics in a party on Xbox. But usually I'm on the 64 player modes or team deathmatch. I was not having fun when I started out with just the 128 player modes. Discovering 64 player modes helped make the game good for me.

Breakthrough 64 has good maps, the Rush maps are good, the deathmatch maps are fun as fook. I can handle Conguest 128 on a couple maps with a good squad with comms - Conquest 64 is good also with a squad with comms.

I play the Series X so the graphics are acceptable. Nowhere near what they should have been, but good enough to be able to focus on the battles. But find me a game that lets you have these types of shooting battles and get back to me.

Sometime later in 2022 it might be a good game. BFV was the same, almost no weapons and plenty of bugs, but a year or two later it became a very good BF title. Maybe BF2042 will be the same, although its launch state is far worse than the one of BFV was.

@RML I'm waiting longingly. BF5 used your curves there they were very good.
Hope you invest some time and can offer us something.
that would be really nice. Especially the PS4 ST on PS5 is a real problem.

...so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.


and that's exactly what it is no longer without the class system but this hero specialist system. That has nothing to do with Battlefield. This is a miscarriage. The maps are all @#$%, regardless of whether they are 62 or 128 players, they are for the garbage. There are so many development errors in the game that one wonders that a fool has ever played at dice himself. Last capture point on a skyscraper? Really?..and the game has no potential due to the glaring wrong decisions. You can't make chocolate pudding out of @#$% anymore.

Marcus Lehto was asked on twitter what happened to the Battlefield franchise.
"I'm trying to find out for myself right now. Then I want to put things right."

Doesn't want to have his job right now!

I strongly disagree on the maps. I think the Breakthrough 64, Rush maps and Conquest 64 maps are quite fun actually except for a couple exceptions. I wish there were more maps but for the ones we have in those modes there are some great transitions in there going from objective to objective. Nice mix of infantry and vehicular combat. I am primarily infantry only and I am having some great battles. Some maps are better than others. I enjoy those. They took off the final point on the skyscraper weeks ago last I heard. So maybe you haven't played in a while. TDM is a blast.

I was very anti the specialist system at first, and I'd still prefer the old class system back but it's really not as horrific as people are complaining about. I always find myself joining the haters at first, gamers are such huge haters. And gamers hate hate any change. And they often have very good points, but they just give up completely on any change no matter what it is all the time and just really like to @#$% way way too much and never see any positives..

The specialist system is certainly not the end of the world by any means, though it should be tweaked. They can keep specialists but just restrict their loadouts by class. So a recon specialist can only carry recon items. An assault specialist can only carry assault weapons/items. Etc... I think that is where this new guy will take the specialist system because it's not disappearing. In the meantime, it doesn't ruin the game, but can evolve better. There are some cool things specialists can do in different situations actually.

I have checked out Hell Let Loose and may buy it, but it's far more of a simulation war game and far different style than BF games. I have Insurgency and will play it, but it's much smaller scale than BF. I never liked COD games, so really, I'm out of options. Still nothing gives me that experience BF can. Have had quite a few BF moments in this game.

I see a lot of people complaining but they only played the 128 player maps. They actually haven't tried the 64 player maps yet.

Uninstalled the game after Update 3. At level 70 there was nothing that would have motivated me to play. Apparently we have different opinions about good map design. To enumerate here what is wrong with the game would go beyond the scope. Whoever likes it should play, but when I look at the Player counts and hear that Server filled with bots and you can't find any games without crossplay, I can tell you where the journey is going, until season one and the new map in march the players are gone. BF4 and BFV had difficult starts, but what I always say is that you could see a golden core in BF4 and also BFV. I don't see anything here, just a game that doesn't know what it should be. Because a year before the release, someone at dice came up with the idea that a pure hazard zone would not be of interest. But that was exactly what was planned. These are just my thoughts that many share, but of course you don't have to share them. Nice that you have fun. I haven't had fun with CoD since Black Ops 4 and bought Vanguard due to a lack of options. What can I say, better than I thought.
I played hell let loose on the pc and had a great time. In HLL communication is everything and I don't know what it's like on consoles.

I stopped playing due to big empty maps which appear to be designed around Hazard Zone Battle Royale. I mainly play conquest as infantry and didn't enjoy running in the wide open between capture points spread really far apart.

It got tedious quick and felt like I was playing a walking simulator, and when I would try doing a vehicle call-in for transportation it was usually greyed out in the menu because someone else was using it.
