News Comments > Battlefield V Beta Opens

32. Re: Morning Mobilization Sep 7, 2018, 22:44 Osc8r
 
Ok, so I gave in and tried it... not a fan at all. Feels like BF1 reskinned. TTK is redicously low, combat is trash, lots of loading screens/downtime. The whole thing just feels... meh.

Uninstalled after an hour.

I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was just a less interesting WoW

How's that even possible?

What's the Time to Kill like i.e. does it just boil down to whoever fires first wins as some video's seem to suggest?

Think i'm still burnt out from BF1.

It's about the same as BF1, ie 5 bullets or more, or 2 sniper hits unless you get a headshot. Tried a few arounds with the G3 and was extremely unimpressed... in between making a good game and whatever this is they forgot to make gunplay fun, everything feels... weird. And the vehicles are 1:1 to BF1, honestly couldn't tell any difference aside from the slightly improved building destruction. For me this is a hard skip and instead I pre-ordered cyberpunk 2077 ;p

I gave it a fair chance though.

I dunno how to explain that, but in BF4 when you aim and do burst fire it behaves like you would expect, it just feels right, snappy and instant, in this game the weapons feel like they shoot pellets that have an ever so slight audio and visual delay. I'd chalk it up to "beta" but it ain't a beta, it is a demo. You can really feel how slow the bullets move though, and there are dozens of audio bugs. Like tanks not making ANY sound or the lack of footsteps (again...)

And seriously, but MG's shooting to the RIGHT of the barrel is just all kinds of fucked up. So much for "realistic" spread.

Add to this the absurdly stupid squad system which feels incrediblllllyyyyyyyy slow and cumbersome compared to BF4 instant switch I honestly couldn't tell if this game was supposed to be a prank or is meant for real. BF1 feels EXACTLY like this game, which is not a compliment at all for me. But if you like BF1 you will love this, it's BF1 improved.

What it isn't is the lessons they learned from nearly 2 years of BF4 patching. Nothing from that game is in BF5 and the tick-rate of the servers is 10, yes, 10, not 30, actually 10. And that's how it feels, everything has a 100ms~ server side delay to it especially noticeable when you spectate.

And just to put this into perspective, I continue to play BF4, I love that game, everything feels right, even when you hit, especially 60hz servers. Once you tasted how that feels, you can never go back. I'd even say BF1 and now BF5 feel like you have a muddy swamp around you instead of clean air. Everything is ever so slightly "off"

Thanks mate, appreciate it. I hated BF1, loved BF4... so this will be a hard pass. Don't think I can even be assed to try the Beta at this point.

All games need a co-op OPTION.

I can't remember the last single player game i finished...maybe GTA SA? All games are better with mates.

Perhaps, but there are single player games that were absolutely ruined by coop. I loved Orcs Must Die. For the second game, they added coop and the game was terrible as a single-player experience. The maps were too large, you spent to much time running. It was obviously tuned for 2 people, and was not remotely as fun as the first game.

How do you know it was solely due to co-op? Similar thing happened to Dungeon defenders but it had co-op in both.

Sometimes dev's are just stupid.

I'll give it a shot, but the streams i watched seemed to be nothing more than left mouse button spam.

What is your secret to seeing into the future?

Because it's too similar to BF1 and that (POS) wasn't exactly a raging success. Think there's was like one mode and two servers with enough players in OCE.

Maybe the BR mode can save them.

Yeah, I tried Mortal Online when it was released and came across a whole 2 other people.

Probably the worst game engine i've ever seen. 1000 players? lmao.

That said a MMO BR game would probably work well. People were interested in the concept in Realm Royale however it was a disappointment and super shallow.

Was kinda looking forward to this one, but...

Locked at 60fps and no FOV adjustment? Vomit.

Looks fairly linear / scripted / forgettable.

Way overpriced.

Will wait for a sale (and some patches) as i'm still hoping i'll get a few hours our enjoyment out of the co-op.

There are 10 battle royale games coming out in a 30 day period, market is over-saturating itself into oblivion.

99% of them are D grade trash that aren't going to get any market share to begin with. 2 years ago you may have got away with it (see h1z1), but fortnite (and PUBG to a much lesser extent) has set the bar high so unless you're going to offer something better or drastically different you are only setting yourself up for failure.

I watched a few streams of Fear the Wolves and don't really see it taking off. Seems like a buggy, slow paced, more 'realistic' style BR game - a market that PUBG already caters to rather well?

Hell, Fear the Wolves currently has 100 viewers on twitch. Compare that to SCUM which has 30,000 viewers. Is it already a flop?

Only one i'm remotely interested in at this point is BF5. It has the engine, mechanics and vehicles to become huge.

I also think a AAA MMO style BR game would do well. Where classes are actually impactful and play completely different (unlike realm royale that was a shallow POS).

Fortnite is on it's way out. Too much of a good thing.

Growth is slowing, but it's still growing...and still eclipsing pretty much every other game out there.

Hell, some shoddy Friday comp pulls in more viewers than the final of the Walking Dead.

Don't see it going anywhere soon... at least until it gets competition from a true AAA BR game.

Can't believe how terrible this company was/is.

Fortnite is in early access as well and even early days before it took off, they fixed, improved and added more content in a single update than daybreak did in the course of 2 years.

And every time daybreak tried to fix things they ended up breaking 10 more. Not to mention they could never get on top of hackers or exploits, and their new map designed for BR... what a complete and utter mess.

Shame the company isn't the one 'sunsetting'.

Hopefully they get the TTK right in BR mode. That's one thing fortnite does right and where building comes into it's own.

Not sure how they are going to balance tanks either, but i'm down.

Not really interested in the base game though, looks too much like BF1 for my liking.

Meh. When's the BR version coming? It looks like the same thing we've done for the past 15+ years and i still have a bad taste in my mouth from BF1.

I'm already sick of BR games, I hope the BR in this is shit so it doesn't become a dominant game mode.

I hope it does or at least keeps expanding, it's far more exciting than the insta-respawning & zerg rushing scoreboard orientated games we've been stuck with for the past 2 decades.

Is the combat still terrible with guns that sound like and resemble pea shooters? Sounded like an interesting premise until I watched some gameplay videos.
