Dammit, I am getting AMPED up for this, like a sucker for the 6th time.
I would just be mindful of pre-ordering FOMO which they are good at from a marketing perspective. I remember BF3,4,5 being very rough at launch - they pulled a gotcha on me 3 times, so at least for me, I intend to wait a bit to buy after launch to assess how stable the game is.

It's a sandbox of combat carnage, and sharing stories with your friends of what you've witnessed or done on the Battlefield is part of the experience.VaranDragon wrote on Jun 10, 2021, 05:55:Yeah, I'm with you. I realize that it's emergent gameplay that manipulate the game mechanics to achieve a crazy kill like that, but I'm not sure it needs to be in the advertising. Still, with the inclusion of bots (I don't really like playing with strangers, but if I can convince my family members to pick this up, we could play 4 person coop vs. bots, that would be cool).
I stopped watching when the pilot ejected from his F-35 so he could shoot a hand-held missile at the Su-57. I get it that's its a game, that it's set in the close future, and that the trailer has probably very little to do with the actual gameplay, but this trailer is so ridiculously over the top that it was painful to watch. What little interest I had in this game (and I actually did have a little interest) has now waned almost completely

EA had better not allow players to choose god damned female characters this time around. That woke shit 100% broke Battlefield V's immersion and made the game very unrealistic and unplayable.
To quote Patrick Soderlund: "we don't want you playing our game" lol
Also, it made the game "unplayable"? Goddamn! Snowflake, doesn't take a lot to make you wither.
I mean, there are multiple females clearly visible in the trailer, and it's modern-era, so you know, womyn can do things men can, like vote. Hate to break the news you obviously 120-year-old man.

Please. Anonymous is like half a dozen fat, hairy neckbeards on 4chan flexing their self-importance for all to see. I'd bet they don't really communicate either, one of them randomly releases a video or something independently to make it seem like there is some organized group of nerds, but it's just a handful of dudes with bad hygiene and no real potency in terms of "hacking" skills. 🙂

jdreyer wrote on May 30, 2021, 18:28:This reddit post seems to reference the most up-to-date hero selection and evaluates the ethnic diversity of it compared to the worlds population. Generally speaking, the OW lineup is reasonably close, and the presumption that it should be this way is derived from the original story and lore that Blizzard created: "In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world. This organization, known as Overwatch, ended the crisis and helped maintain peace for a generation, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery."
Doesn't OW have a bunch diverse characters already? And if the complaint is that they are stereotypes, isn't that true of most of the characters, including the white ones like McCree and Soldier?
jdreyer wrote on May 30, 2021, 18:31:Fair point, I find it hard to imagine the new maps can't handle both 5vs5 and 6vs6. The 'original' modes of OW1 are still available as Classic Quick Play and Open Queue Competitive (except no duplicates). Who knows if those modes will still remain 6vs6 after the OW2 transition.
I wonder why they don't make 5v5 with role locks just another mode, leaving the original in place?
Competitive gaming's white, cisgendered player base has long been an obstacle for many players....Blizzard has repeatedly embraced racist stereotypes in both its storytelling and cosmetics, and it has refused to further diversify its (somewhat diverse) cast with new heroes...And it offers only weak tools to manage the game's routinely toxic chat.
Blizzard's reluctance to alienate the kind of players competitive shooters have made comfortable since their inception has led it to erode some of the smartest parts of the game.

they charge that much because there are people dumb enough to actually PAY it
