The health information stuff in the US seems weirdly regulated. I don't live or work in the US and we used to get some much medical info sent to us that it got scary. We called to warn people, insurance companies, hospitals etc, but no one wanted to lift a finger. Not familiar with the health care system, but people faxed documents that even included credit and social security numbers.

Good thing we all had clearance and the info was deleted after doing our due diligence. Still, we are talking about hundreds of thousands...and probably way way more.

"Only the host needs to own and install the game..."

Didn't the original Diablo have that feature? I'm pretty sure I also played a nascar game this way back in the 90s. COnnected to my buddy using

Anyways, its good feature to have. Now if we can continue to innovate and bring back server browsers for non MMO multiplayer games. Oh maybe Client so that we can host our own instances and kick/ban cheaters and devs can save $$ they spend on hositng funky instances that force people in small markets to joing games way out of reach with a 200 ping.

Yes, another old man rant by yours truly lol

This Swedish girl is a product of her handlers. She is espousing what adults with a specific agenda have told her. I don't think she is bonkers, just misinformed by the people that are using her. I find it very sad that people have to use a child to push such an agenda, especially when it is not backed by any scientific facts. Yes, the earth is warming, but the silly sky is falling nonsense has no basis in fact.

No the sky isn't falling but the earth is going down the drain really fucking fast. Many suspect we've already moved beyond the tipping point and are at the start of the next extinction level event, meaning it's already too late. This isn't a drop off a cliff, but a long slide into extinction that picks up speed as it goes. Ecosystems are collapsing. Keystone species are disappearing. We're running out of fresh water, top soil, arable land. Population is exploding and everyone demands more, more, more. It's completely unsustainable - and has been for several decades now. Yeah, there's an agenda, the 'Hey I live on this planet too and it would be really nice if it didn't go to Hell in a handbasket in the next couple of decades which is exactly where it's going' agenda.

Its sad that you and many others still have explain this to people in 2019.

I always get worried when I see that cloud save box appear, no matter which game. You're always just one click away from fucking yourself over...

I've only fucked myself over twice. Once early into Steam doing this, when Steam lost my save (best as I could tell.) Another time when I had been offline without realizing it and ended up with two different saves, out of sync, and the wrong one got uploaded (at least 50% user error, if not 100%.)

Yeah been there with BF4, used to get that all the time and one wrong click and I was f'd. Stopped playing and i got resolved when i loaded up the game months latter. Less frequent now, but still get it with EAs launcher. I may just be old, but i don't want cloud anything. I've woked enough places to see how depending on anyone or any 3rd party means you're waiting for things to go bad and they will. Since people have to kill EGS to avoid stuttering, most wil see those pop ups.

Now for my rant: not a good year to be fragging!!! BF5 is a disaster, few alternatives that don't depend on matchmaking. Decided to go single player and I got Rage 2, Wolf young blood or something, 2 generals expansion that was way to short, Gears 5 that feels like space ace borderlands 3 cause i really need something fast paced to scratch that old school ut99 itch. Gaming is like Netflix.. lots of titles but you soon realize therr isn't much worth your time. I need to get back into racing games or something. \End of Rant\

So to fix Borderlands 3 you need to get rid of Epic Game Store?
Does EGS actually let you kill it while playing? Wish I could do that with every launcher; Ubi's I think lets you close it but keeps some process running, Origin and Blizzard I remember would kill the game, and Steam might be game dependent based on using Steamworks DRM, but since most do I haven't bothered testing, and nor have I tried for Bethesda's.

GoG's the only (other?) one that just lets me play my damned game...
Battlenet can close after the game launches. Has been able to for years. In fact there is a option for bnet to close when the game launches in the options.

Something I wish more clients had.

Also what issues with BL3? Been watching tons on streamers and none of them have had issues.

Most of the performance issues seem linked to Volumetric fog, killing EGS didn't help that much on my end. Only killing EGS made things smoother, but still 50 to 65 fps @ 4k...most scenes below 60. Turning off volumetric fog bumps the fps up to a low of 70.

On my Andriod phone, I use Firefox for the majority of browsing, and launch Firefox Focus for web searches. I've been thinking about switching away from gmail though.
Where would you go, protonmail?

That's exactly what i did. I use my phone like chickenboo and don't have a gmail account on it. Firefox with uMatrix, disconnect, ublock, cookie auto delete, vpn extensions etc.

I only use an old gmail account to run updates once a week and remove it when done. I don't use any app that requires a google account. That being said, wear os doesn't allow me to remove the account anymore, but I use a 3rd party app to access all my email accounts on the smartwatch. No google assistant or whatever it's called, no google fit, location is always disabled.

I just finished this game and it was pretty lackluster, not sure I want or need new content. The story is even shorter then the one in the first game, granted you can spend several hours doing pointless side missions but those are even duller then the story missions.

I did not even get all the different weapons b4 the game ended, not that it would matter much, the AR and shotgun are all you need.

Well said! Played it on hard, because I read somewhere that was the only way to make it worth the money. Only realized we had perks for overdrive and all that after i finished it. Same with the whatever upgrades that increase damage and health from the freaky shop cyborg guy... The hardest part of the game was the that revive training ark training that was so buggy I was stuck there for an hour. Didn't used any of the abilities, just overdrive since it gave me some health the rare times i really needed it.

They were lucky I was craving a shooter and dropped the Division 2 once i got close to 500 and finished the single player. Sadly, I'm back to BFV. Sad gaming year for me.. I want to frag, but Battle Royal annoys me for some reason. Just give me load-out and let the best man win...

Cheater should've been instantly kicked from the game the moment they knew he was cheating... Why let him play after that?

Put his face and real name out on the internet, hardware ban this guy, take away his game account and put out a statement that this is going to happen to every single cheater they find. Some hardware bans cannot even be fooled by spoofed hardware ids, so right now it can be done.
Tell all his friends, Tattoo cheater on his forehead, cut off his gaming fingers, take away his right to vote, medically sterilize him and send him to a reeducation camp.

You guys are way too magnanimous... /s
Nuke him from high orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

That last one actually made laugh out loud!!!

One new map. 20 new modes. GET READY FOR BATTLEFIELD!

So boring. This game needs regular injections of new content, not this drip drab nonsense with mode overload. Most appalling is the total lack of vehicles in this game. Gone are the days of multiple transports and mini theaters of combat within a map. Instead its boring chokepoint conflict over and over.

Yes, the lack of content is unacceptable. Finally a version that runs well with minor rubber banding issues and looks looks as good most AAA single player FPS when online and they are killing the game with the lack of new maps/content. They could even grab the BF1 maps and dump them in BFV. Ideally they would make what I call call battlefield complete, all the maps and weapons etc. form all the previous titles, not single player and and just let us run what ever maps we want with gear from the appropriate era...this idea is copy written as of this moment

At work and admit to not having read anything but the headline. Anayways, it's nota new anything it's basically addiction and sokeone recognizing the obvious meaning people can get addictied to varity of things including gaming.

Love how we humans are so good at identifying the problem, but not so much at fixing especially if there is money to be made. We punt the problem to the next whatever/whoomever.

Anyways, I'll go back to my pizza, burger, steak, anything tasty addiction. My blood is only 15% butter so I may be good for another 10 years. (the worst part, i look like some healthy jogger dude cause of my crazy metabolism)

LOL!!! I have close to 60k in company coin that will never get used since I've unlocked my weapon of choice. Never used it to unlock cosmetic stuff for the character or the weapons since it has no impact on game play at least not on my end.

They need to release lots of maps and fast!! I understand them wanting to try the battle royale stuff to boost sales, but I think there may be a significant # of people like me who only play this because its one of the few non battle royale multiplayer FPS that doesn't fall in the Destiny/Anthem mold.

You got that right!! The logic seems to be...but with more $$ we can fix all those future problems.

Anyways, that's why I've been telling people document which politicians support this stuff or say climate change is a lie. Publish the list online and when the disasters start, you know exactly who to sue. Just like the courts said that people can sue the Saudis for 9/11.

The idea of a financial consequences to them could force people to change their tune and not just punt to the next generation knowing they wont be around to feel the full impact of their choices on humanity.

Anyways, my 2 cents and I doubt anything will change cause $$$ is the cure for everything except the lack of common sens.

Thanks for posting that!!! I always laugh when i read it, but then i remember that this is truly how it works. I think they use the word investor now to explain the same thing you did, but from a more stock market centric point of view.

Yeah, he forgot that he's talking to the PC market and what his company was saying when the XBox and GoW where the hot new thing on the block.. LOL!!!

Anyways, this bla bla and the resulting flame war should be more interesting/entertaining than what they did to UT!!!

50 million? That's crazy. I wonder how many of those actually bought any cosmetics or whatever they are selling in game though.

This still looks like yet another BR game that I'm going to skip though, I don't find that gameplay style appealing at all.

I tried a few ties, but same here. First game I kept wondering what the heck my guys were doing and didnt realize I had to look for gear lol. Then the round started and not much happened other than people motivating me to unplug my mic and mute everybody. I'd rather go onto a BF:V server and create my own experience on whatever map is being played. No depending on anyone unless I choose to do so and I support the entire team based on how the game/map evolves.

I'm not sure what they increased TTK to, doesn't feel like it was changed all that much, although I have survived a few sprints across broad open plains, despite getting shot a few times.

Face to face encounters don't seem as though they've changed, maybe 1 additional shot for some of the automatics? Whatever that 1 shotgun is for Support still seems to be instakill.

I still really haven't had a chance to put a lot of hours into the game though, so perhaps chalk it up to BFV inexperience overall.

For all the great things about any BF game, and the cool new stuff, BFV is still let down by shitty teammates who only want to camp on the fucking hills and snipe instead of capping flags, or playing any sort of flag defense.

I've logged 22 hours and didn't really notice until I figured the right kit for my play style. I assumed the minor change was due to better net code and hit detection. Not a social know what others think outside of this forum. All i can say is that I welcome whatever the change was. Played most BF games and this is the first time that I don't feel like I have to empty a clip or half a clip to take someone. and no more getting the jump on a group and get 0 frags cause the absorbed or deflected the first clip and had time to turn around and frag me.

The movement is greatly improved, less dying during animations and you can actually move out of the way of a slow crawling vehicle.

Still some rubber banding, but way less than in bf1 which was already a major improvement over previous versions.

TTK for anyone using recon kits is as fast as it always was, the support class is where things get a bit nasty... Tripod laser beam shredders so expect to get fragged by KE7 often until youget a feel of the maps/routes cover options.

Did they implement the server browser?

I know that match making is the "in" thing, but I'm one of those who saw the transition form that approach to server browser back in the days and do not want to go backwards.

For about 70% more money I expect 70% better performance! As I did with nvidia's RTX, by the way.

Why? There's always diminishing returns at the top. Always. In every single category of every single product.

If you want something bleedingly new and cutting edge, you're paying a premium for it. The performance per dollar is never in favor of the highest end products. Anywhere. Ever.

I feel like people on this site have kind of lost that. Like we used to know it - we used to look at the top end products and think about how cool the performance was but realize it wasn't made for us and it wasn't going to be something we'd buy - instead we'd buy something half the price and 75% the performance. But lately it seems like everyone here is demanding value from the highest tier products. That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

You're correct! That being said, I think people are reacting to the premium for top end going spiraling out of control. 700, 800 even 900 i can accept without complaining to much, but 1200 usd some serious coin.

Been buying top end or close since 2006, butI also hold on to the gear for many years (3770k about to be replaced). Will get the 2080ti, but doubt i'll get and one down the road like i've done for over a decade.

P.S. top end is an interesting concept whenwe know company x is holding something back cause company Z hasn't released anything for a while.

Have BF fans gone to PUBG/Fortnite? I'd expect PUBG got a huge chunk, right? Less to Fortnite and Overwatch.

But those games are what's taking players these days, not realistic or semirealistic deathmatch games.

I think there are enough players to keep the games mentioned and BF going strong. It's up to developers to listen to customers & make sure they have a product that appeals to the target audiece. Between bf4 and bf1 there enough active players today to make bf2143 or bc3 sell extremely well. My opinion..
