News Comments > Battlefield 1 Patch Complaints
6. Re: Battlefield 1 Patch Complaints Nov 21, 2016, 00:38 Rigs
 
The posts on that BF1 forum are pretty crazy. Some people can't see any difference ('My shit's at 4k with a GTX290 man! I don't see a problem!'), probably because they have it set to low or medium despite what they claim while some think that DICE and EA did it intentionally now that the game has launched. Like, they would intentionally downgrade the game after 'they got all their money' because...why, exactly? Ok, the game launched but it would take time to go in and purposely downgrade certain things to cause poorer performance, washed out, blurry textures and subpar lighting and shader effects just so DICE and EA could do...what? I don't see the endgame there. If they 'got their moneyz' then why would they even bother?! If they wanted to make people pay, they could release BF1.5, shut down the servers to the original and tell everyone they have to upgrade...you know, Microsoft style. But I don't see that happening so I fail to see why they would intentionally sabotage their title because they got their $$$. Idiots. A few think it's a conspiracy for nVidia to downgrade via drivers so people will buy new cards...but...new cards would have the same problem! WTF are these kids smoking?!

Then, of course, you have the whiny brats that think DICE doesn't give a fuck because they haven't said anything about it in the last nine minutes since everyone began complaining. 'I can't play it anymore! I bought this killer 486 and the game looks like shit! I don't have the will to play anymore, man! Fuck EA and DICE! They gave me a game I played 100+ hours on and now I might just have to go and refund it! Bastards!'

You hear that? It's really, really faint...it's the sound of the worlds smallest violin, boys... Headphones

O.k. *cracking knuckles* IF, I was runnin' the company HERE's what I would do...

I would stop having ship and concept sales altogether. Just put everything that you can sell constantly up for sale, period. Stop trying to make money, screw it. At this point, everyone knows about this game and will buy what they want, if they want. These sales only make the company look like they are money grubbers; end them. If they do still have cash to burn (which is unknown), put everybody on the immediate job of finishing Squadron 42 and I mean EVERYONE!

Then, just ship Squadron 42 and a server-side version of the Persistent Universe kinda like they have right now BUT with all the ships available to fly that you can configure and run on your own server if you want.

Next, watch the money from selling an actual game come rollin' in along with a renewed sense of purpose and a much needed boost of confidence for the company as a whole. THEN finish the MMO part of the game and release it to the masses as a decent 1.0 and keep adding and tweaking it to perfection.

I know, I know, it's ALL crazy talk!

Almost everything you just mentioned has been done before...it was called Freelancer. And coincidentally, Roberts was pulled from that project because...why?...oh, right! UNLIMITED FEATURE CREEP!

Certainly proves the ol' adage - 'Those that fail to learn from mistakes are doomed to repeat them'...

Ostensibly it's a trashy British publication, but it's pandering to a global audience, and more specifically, a US one, hence the frequent usage of US rather than UK English and the obsession with predominantly US celebrities.

They make TMZ look like amateur hour.

Oh, let's see:

They have a cannon which costs $800,000 to fire which they can't afford.

Experts feel it has a good chance of just flipping over if the right wave hits it.

They cost four BILLION dollars per fucking ship.

It can't really defend itself from missile attacks. (in fact, I've seen articles say that it basically has NO air defenses at all, and thus can only function as part of a battlegroup along with several MUCH cheaper Arleigh Burke class destroyers. You know, the thing it was supposed to replace.)

In short, it's a typical military fucking boondoggle. Just throw more and more and more and more and more and more fucking money against it. Meanwhile, our entire road infrastructure is collapsing and the majority of it will be undriveable by 2045 because there is no money to spend on it, all of America is bankrupted by the cost of healthcare and we have no single dime to spend on teachers, so class sizes now routinely surpass 35 or even 40 children per class.

But yeah, let's give the fucking military EVEN MORE MONEY.

Yeah, but a lot of that wasn't during the R&D phase of the program...not that it really matters, money is money regardless of what 'phase' the project is in. I totally agree with you, though, I just wasn't that much aware that the destroyers were in the same boat as the F-35's. I haven't had much chance to keep track of the history, I'll have to do some reading this weekend on it and get up to speed. Blagodaryu and Dasvidaniya, Comrade Creston!

Yeah, socialized medicine sucks. You guys pay $3500 a year on average for it? Barring any major problems your insurance may not cover. You know what I pay? Nothing. You know what everyone else pays in a socialized democracy? Nothing. Oh sure, it comes out of our taxes, but we choose to spend in on important shit like that. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad how right-wing extremists like you guys think something like socialized medicine is pure evil at several billion a year, but wasting a trillion dollars a year - still socialism - on the military industrial complex is just fine. Christ, you clowns don't know whether you're coming or going.

Riiight. Whatever, Cutter. How am I a 'right wing extremist'? I think you're fucking delusional and didn't read anything that I wrote (per usual)!

Any hopes for real steps towards universal healthcare are dead.

Repealing Obamacare will be the best thing Trump does.

- Before Obamacare, I had health insurance at a cost of ~ 280 dollars a month. 500 deductible, 3500 out of pocket max.
- In the three years of Obamacare, my premium went from 280 to 300 to 400 to 720 (what it would be next year if I kept it.)
- My deductible went from 500 to 1000 to 1500 to 2500.
- I don't even know how much my out of pocket max next year would be. It was 6800 this last year. It'll likely be 10 grand or so. I just quit reading the letter after it said 720 dollars a month in premium.

(This isn't even counting the fact my medications have nearly doubled in price too.)

For the majority of Americans, it'll just be cheaper to pay the penalty. (You know, let's punish them for being TOO FUCKING POOR TO AFFORD HEALTH INSURANCE.) Yeah, that's a great system. Too bad we're losing it!

Sorry, not meant as an attack against you personally, but Obamacare is fucking bankrupting the people in this country who are unfortunate enough to not have healthcare through their employer.

Where's the upvote/like button?! BLUE!

I'll second this to my grave. People that know me know the absolute disaster that I've had to go through with fucking Obamacare. I spent more time and effort on this damn thing for both me and my elderly mother than I'd really care to admit. Seriously, I've laid awake at night thinking about it! I've been kept awake at night because of healthcare insurance. That's despicable. I decided to pay the penalty (don't EVEN get me started!) but my mother just can't, she needs the insurance and they are making her pay for every last bit of it plus punishing her by paying $1 a month because she didn't sign up before they told her she had to. This is absolutely true. They sent a payment book and everything, for $1 a month! And you can't pay it by the year! Oh, no, it has to be sent in once a month. And getting someone that actually knows what;s going on? Damn near impossible. I've never wanted to strangle so many people in one day in my life before. Just endless misery. Finally the premiums were just too much and there was no choice in my area, ONE provider. So of course they took advantage of it and gouged the hell out of their customers. Who are they going to flee to?

What a shit show. I will NOT have any problem putting Obamacare in the ground. Unless Trump institutes something even worse...

Yeah, while that was not cool, it's somewhat understandable. She's an old lady, she's been 24-7 on the campaign trail for 1.5 years. She was exhausted, and after polls showed her with a healthy lead watching her firewall crumble one by one as the night progressed must have been extremely traumatic. Rumor is that she was in shock.

From what I was told, they kept telling the people gathered there that someone would be coming out 'shortly' to say a few words. At almost the same time, they were telling the press that they wouldn't be saying anything for the rest of the night. If Hillary wasn't able to do it, someone from the campaign could have at least got up there and told them something. (Hell, give Bill his sax and push him out there!) That's like having a big wedding, inviting everyone you know and then eloping. Very inconsiderate, especially to people that had volunteered a ton of their own time to the campaign.

I'm still a little numb. I didn't have a preference and after really taking a hard look at all the candidates, I couldn't agree on any of them. Honestly, I thought Jill Stein looked the best, in the 'could do the least amount of damage' kind of way. I keep seeing the headlines and it's just like being in the Twilight Zone. I'd imagine that Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Trevor Noah and Steven Colbert are pretty disappointed. Noah pushed hard for a Hilary vote, that was evident the last few weeks. He went from criticizing both of them to just criticizing Trump to advocating for Clinton. And you could see Colbert was really deflated last night toward the end of his 'special'. No more laughs, no more smiling and joking. I think they thought they didn't need to worry.

Funny thing was I jokingly told my mother that I was considering going to New Zealand and she said that she'd always wanted to go. I never knew that. So I might actually take a trip there after all.

I'm willing to have an open mind on Trump as long as he doesn't go full asshat and start pushing other countries around. I'm worried about his connections to Russia and I'm still very curious where he's getting the $15 BILLION for the wall? Aside from that, let me say I thought it was extremely rude and immature for Hillary to leave all her supporters standing around all night and not say a word until this morning.

Oh, my bad, I didn't realize a five year old game would require a 390x to run acceptably like it's previous three releases...I can run LE with over 100 mods without any noticeable problems whatsoever and yet with this I can't run it vanilla? No, it's not my 'ancient' video
card, the game is just buggy AF...

A 290 is what they recommend, pretty modest. The minimum is a 2GB 7870 which is again fairly modest. He's probably right, you're not close to recommended specs. Actually now that I checked you're even below the minimum system specs. Since specs don't often tell the whole story (yes I noticed you tried it on a 4870) I would also note that driver support for older cards tends to have problems at the 3+ year mark anyway. Manufacturers keep putting out the unified drivers but often ignore the compatibility issues that crop up with older cards because they prioritize customers with newer hardware. I have no crash issues at the same point on my HTPC downstairs which has a 290. Just the way of the industry.

If LE works with 100 mods on a card that old then I would consider yourself lucky and play that instead but you certainly won't be able to replicate that on this version and have run it stably.

That's actually what I've done. I shelved SE and went back to playing LE. I have all those mods running without any conflicts but it does slow down at times, especially when you can see far into the distance outside. I've got it turned down but as I said before, AMD cards seem to have some kind of issue with shadows and AA. I dunno. At least it runs good enough for my tastes, anyway. I was able to get the 4870 to run LE fine as well but it still chokes on SE at the same point. My friend just went ahead and purchased LE and is going to use mods to pad it out for the 'SE experience'. I realize these cards, including mine, aren't exactly cutting edge but neither is this game. You'd think after five years they could have streamlined the game some in order to get it to run on modest hardware. It seems to even have trouble on the PS4 and Xbone too.

Oh well, so much for that experiment... Pouting

Upgrade the ancient card and the problems will disappear.

Oh, my bad, I didn't realize a five year old game would require a 390x to run acceptably like it's previous three releases...I can run LE with over 100 mods without any noticeable problems whatsoever and yet with this I can't run it vanilla? No, it's not my 'ancient' video card, the game is just buggy AF...
