I have finished plenty of rounds, so I don't agree with that particular gripe, but yes, there are a variety of bugs. The building collision thing, lol, I expect that'll get fixed quick. I killed a flying wingsuit guy with a jeep the other day via collision, so the important collisions are in there. Yes, also the maps feel way too big, for how few vehicles there are. There should be at least 2x the tanks and transports per team, if not 3x.

Gun balance is also off, but that's a numbers game that'll bounce around for the next year regardless. Memory fades fast, but I swear BF2042 is less buggy than BF4 was on release day. Now that game I could not play for the first week or so without crashing. I think it was about as bad for BF3 too...

BF1, BFV, BF2042 were all pretty stable for me on release day, just balance issues and some non-fatal bugs.

Meh, I will wait for more gameplay videos. I loved the early games, and MoW:AS2 is great, but then they made Call to Arms, and made a shitty game and emphasized the first person view for some mind boggling reason.

So I'm tentatively interested. Hopefully they learned their lesson from the bad reviews and reception of Call to Arms.

Yeah, I'm not even a fan of the key fobs. Yes, a lot of them do have a backup key inside, but I don't believe the Tesla ones do(citation needed from a Tesla owner). I don't own a Tesla, I've just seen a couple that people I know own; we haven't gotten into detailed conversations about the entry/ignition, other than they use the phone app.

I bought a car at the end of 2015, and I had to specially order a real key instead of the key fob and push button start. They looked at me like I was crazy at the dealership, but it's available (or at least was) as an option.

Looks somewhat interesting, but reading the Steam forums, it looks like these guys massively under-delivered on their Kickstarter promises.

Your mileage my vary, but I think I'll just let this game mature a bit before I pick it up.

I know a couple of people with Teslas, and they don't even have keys for their model. Just a key fob thing, which they invariably leave in the car, and their phone app.

I hate key fobs with a passion, even for ICE vehicles. Keys don't run out of batteries. Same risk of losing/theft as something more complicated too, and not much less protection for theft of vehicle.

I am definitely going EV for my next vehicle, but whether it's a Ford, Tesla, Rivian, or whatever, I sure as shit want a real key, and no remote shutdown ability by the automaker. Which seems to be rapidly being removed from the market.

It's definitely another issue-filled launch. I've got about 8-10 hours in it so far, and yeah, some things may have been in there from a planned BR game. I have noticed that once a few people have unlocked the medic woman and the other semi-medic specialists, you do get revived a bit. I've been playing medic, healing people and reviving and even repairing, since you can carry repair + medic, but not repair + Rocket Launcher for some reason currently. First day of play, I totally agree, I got revived zero times. Now I'm getting some revives, and when I go medic for the full round, and revive 6-10 people, I am usually not even in the top 5 for revives, so clearly some other people are reviving.

People are 100% running away from heals and repairs though, rofl. Stand fucking still for a SECOND.

Definitely the wingsuit and rope gun specialists give so much movement ability they are more attractive than the medic specialist for most people, and RL is more attractive than repair tool. The Barricade specialist feels utterly fucking useless, even with his armor. Shield and Sentry gun specialists actually aren't bad. Wall vision specialist will be broken once more people start realizing what she can do.

Teamwork will come (hopefully) as people get more used to the game and maps, I've already had a couple rounds of relatively decent teamwork. It's definitely annoying as hell to not have real scoreboards, and most importantly, NO KILL FEED for the entire server. I can't tell if somebody is just wrecking our entire team from 10 miles away with a LMG and hacking, or we're just dying randomly from 64 prone campers and vehicles, etc.

The biggest gripe I have currently is there are, as far as I can tell, ONLY 2 TANKS per team, even in 64 vs 64? Maybe this is higher on some other map, or can be changed in the Portal mode, but I haven't played Portal much. I think only 1 attack helo, 1 jet, 1 scout helo for each team too? It should be three times that for most maps, per team, at least. That will be a clusterfuck for infantry, but so be it, it's Battlefield.

The attachment system is still a bit weird, if you have a bunch of stuff unlocked, you have to add them as alternates outside of the match, to be able to swap to them in match... zzzz.

It's a huge shame that the building fortification system from BFV did not get into BF2042. That was the best, most interesting change to the game that the series has had.

Gun play seems mostly fine, decent hit registry, but like I said, the maps are big, and it feels like we should have 3x the available vehicles, instead of a mass infantry fight. BF3, BF4 definitely had a higher vehicle to infantry ratio, to the benefit of the game. I think even BFV and BF1 had more? Maybe it was more restrictive in those two as well. Summoned/Air Dropped vehicles count to your total team's vehicle count, and are relatively easily stolen when some jackass calls in a tank on top of a building or some shit, and gets killed before it even shows up.

Yes, hovercrafts can currently climb buildings, and the minigun will utterly annihilate infantry at medium to short range, and even still kill some fools at long range. In spite of all the wingsuit ninja/wingsuit RL combo videos I've seen so far, it has yet to feel like a real problem so far. PP-29 is definitely the superior gun at the moment, due to no noticeable recoil and high fire rate, but all the guns have controllable recoil. I've been using the AK with some attachments and it's pretty good. Armor piercing ammo so far seems like useless shit vs the regular ammo, purely because of lower damage and losing 10 rounds per mag, and a total ammo count of *80* rounds!?

Hit H to keep chat up all the time, and start communicating. It'll take awhile for people to learn to communicate and play together... again. I've yet to have a squad of four randoms actually stay together for a full map though. Also switching from team to Squad chat seems slightly bugged? Gets stuck on Team only? Might be a keybind issue.

tldr, Some numbers changes required, add more vehicles, it'll be fine...in 6 months. It's playable now but I'm doing a lot of exasperated sighing. They seem to have fixed the connection issue, at least for me on PC.

*EDIT* Looked at it again, Armor Piercing ammo count on the AK is 80 rounds total, 20 in mag and 60 extra, not 70 my bad, DICE.

They should just quit while they are ahead. There is no way this game will come out and somehow be a nuanced view of a real world conflict that happened in most people's lives. It's not like there were a ton of games made about the Croatia/Serbia war from the 90s, or any other conflicts that don't involve dark skinned non-christians.

Plus, it'll be ruined by bunny hopping or diving or some other physics engine exploit.

These devs are a bunch of dumb rocks. The community has been telling them since before release that the game is to difficult. Even on the easiest settings. The devs somehow think that even the lowest setting has to be massively difficult. Morons!!

Sounds like the L4D developers caught the Dark Souls syndrome.

This game sounds more and more like I'll skip it until there is a major sale, it's going to just piss off the remnants of the coop group if it's that much of a hassle.

Hmm, juicy. I've always been intrigued by the fact that out of 650,000 emails, only Gruden's were leaked. And surely out of 650,000 emails, Gruden's couldn't have been the only ones which didn't follow social norms. Maybe this suit can kick loose the rest of the emails, that could be interesting...

I think most of the other coaches and staff were smart enough not to go on racist/sexist/homophobic rants in emails, that's probably part of why we just heard about Gruden's. The vast majority of the emails were probably boring as hell, office stuff.

If I had never read any of the old school or even relatively new school comics with Mandarin or Shang Chi in them, I'd have really liked the movie. As it was, I felt like they made a terrible mistake with what they did with the rings, and with Shang Chi's abilities. I'd comic nerd rant about it, but they were basically B level or worse characters, somewhat racist caricatures at that, back in the older comics, so probably nobody knows their old powers for comparison.

theglaze -> yeah, I didn't even have a game pad or joystick plugged in, but I couldn't fix the random firing issue until I deleted all Gamepad bindings.

I updated my mouse firmware too, that seems to have fixed the 'Unable to Rebind Mice buttons' issue, so now I can at least shoot as infantry.

However, with crossplay on or off, I cannot connect to multiplayer. I'm guessing their servers are just getting hammered right now?

Very annoying playing with bots, because there is no "Just Solo" option, it's Solo/Coop, so the game sometimes waits forever for people to join? Fucking idiotic design. Solo is not the same as Coop, DICE.

I have like 30 people from various Battlefield games in my Origin list, like 2-3 of them currently have BF2042, I wonder if they are getting spammed with "Join Coop with This Guy" messages when I try to run Solo.

I did play around with the choppers a little bit, they seem... different from previous battlefields, definitely more mouse focused with something close to the default key setup. Missiles definitely have a far lower rate of fire than BF4, for example. Hopefully the gunner seat is a beast to make up for the shit firepower the pilot has. I couldn't get the larger missile to lock onto any vehicles at all, so haven't actually shot that yet.

*EDIT* I may just give it a week, almost all of my normal BF teammates didn't even bother buying the pre-order. Wise decision it seems.

*EDIT 2* Okay, I was able to join a few multiplayer conquest large matches, and a hardware match. With Crossplay Off. Seems it's a known bug at the moment, error 2002G or 600P, Failure to load Persistence Data ore something along those lines. You also do not seem to stay on the same server after that map is over. Seems like a shit design that's hammering their servers, but who knows.

Bullet registry seems good, maybe even great. the Attachment system would probably be cool if I had some attachments. I revived my squad mates a bunch in Hardware, even though we had no clue what the fuck was going on, that seems like that could be a fun game mode with a voice commed quartet. Conquest Large... what a cluster fuck. It's as bad as it's ever been, rofl. I got revived once, had my vehicle repaired zero times in 4 matches. Squads immediately all ran off to the 4 corners of the earth. They are really making it apparent that you need to bring your own squad to even get anywhere in the game. Also, you can't currently carry a repair tool AND a rocket launcher, so of course no one has a repair tool. Very stupid design decision, since there are a shitload of vehicles and anti-vehicle seems required.

I don't know yet about this game though; I love the tank movement and mechanics, the tanks are basically the best parts of BF4 and BF3. Unfortunately, good luck getting into a tank from a regular spawn. Most of the vehicles seem pretty awesome, honestly. Although clearly the jeeps have some armor upgrade that I didn't unlock yet, as I was getting sniped and machine gunned in any jeep or hovercraft seat, and could do no machine gun damage to other light vehicles.

Also, very few people defending any flags, of course. No team voice comm as far as I can tell, and of course no public chat, only team, squad and 'party'.

I can't connect to multiplayer, so I played a bot match. Maps (so far) look gorgeous, and are gigantic in conquest large. They seem to have removed 3D spotting, or it works differently, it's hard as hell to spot infantry in first person view from inside a tank, and it seems only if you damage people(?) do they get an orange enemy marker over their head.

Something is seriously wrong with the mouse configuration, and currently as infantry my gun fires constantly. It seems to be a bug related to "Gunner" bindings, according to some forum rumors, but the suggestions to unbind the Fire button from gunner don't work, because I cannot change any Mouse bindings. Keyboard bindings can be deleted by holding ESC, Mouse bindings work the same way for some people, but apparently in my game it's "Hold Option *Veritcal Bar* " to unbind, whatever the fuck that is. So I can't unbind any mouse settings, and they all immediately get bound to Mouse 6, which is a movement rate button on my current mouse.

I wonder if it's a driver/mouse option? I have an EVGA X17 mouse, for the record.

First day bugs for a BF game, not really unexpected, but still. Not being able to stop shooting is a first.
