Yeah it's leaps and bounds better than when it launched. DICE LA has done a really great job fixing it up, definitely worth checking out again. My only gripe these days is that they added "Classic Mode" (BF2 settings) too late after launch and there's not many servers for it :.(

Yeah the server settings has always been a problem, the issue is that if you run custom settings then you tend to get filtered out of peoples server searches and so less people play on your server which results in even less popularity With more relaxed filters it can be hard to tell at a glance if a server runs with noob settings like fast vehicle respawn.

I also agree that classic should have been a launch setting. I would have preferred to play it from the start for sure
(for those not in the know, Classic mode is similar to old BF games so no 3D spotting, no regenerating health, squad leader spawn only, no 3P vehicle cam, reloading is full clip)

I was very bitter after the sketchy release of BF3 and then again for BF4, but I have to hand it to DICE for trying to make things right.

Yeah the launch was godawful, but if you own the game you owe it to yourself to see whats changed. It is not perfect but it has come a long way.

I think this also brings night mode for some of the maps already in the game, I wonder what happened to the mystery "classic" remake map that they said they were working on.

Stoked for this patch. As flawed as BF4 is it is still easily the best team shooter we have at the moment. At least until Battlefront? (Fingers crossed)

yawn

anyone got a player count these days? seems like its heading to be a ghost town, won't help when they fragment an already ailing userbase with the new maps

Yeah, unsurprisingly on PC at least it is failing. It apparently appeals more to the new gen console users (or there is some kind of deal on so there has been a surge in purchases). I figure that'll die down quickly.

So they are pretending like the they care now in an effort to score more SW Battlefront preorders. Nice try, EA. Try again.

BF4 still has some issues but in their defence, they've been actively patching BF4 ever since the bad press it got at the start.
They have CTE (test) servers the public can use to use and vote on new features and they listen to community feedback. Also the fixes and changes used here actively affect their other new games that use Frostbite like BFH and Battlefront. So it's not just to hype their new game, it will hopefully make the launch and experience a smoother one.
Sometimes the new releases are a few months behind in terms of patches (things like netcode changes not being implemented was noticeable at BFH launch) but at least they are trying!

The netcode changes they are talking about are probably the new 120hz changes which will mean 4 times better hitreg (I hope)

Yep. Used to get accused of cheating all the time in CS because I was using A3D and boost others used EAX. Occlusion and reverb wasn't great but directional was amazing.

A good third party reusable sound tech is so many years overdue. Actually excited about this if it does end up working on standard hardware

The beta wasn't completely devoid of fun but it was a far cry from the Raven Shield 2 I was hoping for (before the trailers were released).

cool, thanks for the update.

I have a feeling that, just like everything in the BF verse nowadays, it'll be for sale after the fact. Taking the class and vehicle unlock DLC as a precedent.

oh and $37.50 is the cheapest that i've found for the base game. not a bad price, and if that was the MSRP then i bet alot more people would be looking at it

Yeah I think it'll be on sale pretty soon. Regardless of whether or not you like the game, I do think it is relatively light on content and features compared to the previous BF games. I'm sure its more of a stop-gap until Battlefront comes out than anything. I'd be surprised if they still expect it to be going strong past the end of the year.

Lastly, you get to use a mouse and keyboard which gives you the best control setup for a first person shooter

Something about this having to be said makes me feel dirty about reading right up until there.

Thanks, I guess?

Ha yeah but imagined if they said mouse and keyboard support coming soon after launch!

I too would prefer a return to the bigger squads (5-6) with a potential balancing mechanic in place such as squad leader spawn only. It is a little too easy for squads to 'spam-spawn' at the moment (one man enters a room and a split second later four leave)

News Comments > Skyrim Beta Patch
27. Re: Skyrim Beta Patch Mar 4, 2013, 17:45 Bishi
 
If like me you found the combat to be quite dull in this game (and mostly too easy once you cap some skills) then install Skyrim Redone (SkyRe), overhauls so much in Skyrim (not just combat) and makes it into a much better game. Goes well with many mods but its a great place to start.

Follow the STEP and GEMS guides to help turn Skyrim into something closer to a 2013 game

Meh, hardly. On the harder difficulties it was constant backpedalling and spamming. Yes, other RPG's suffer the same disease... such as Skyrim, which I think is awesome as well apart from the combat

At least with Bethesda mods go a long way.

Loved the story and lore, hated the combat. Maybe they can fix that this time.

Troedsson also said that the power had been transferred to the squad level more and they get all the toys to play with, such as the UAV
