Your one time donation of $27000 to the Clinton foundation will earn you a private spirit cooking lesson with Hillary.

Hey look, the guy who personally believed a politician over clear objective reality also believes that the same politician's opponent is the leader of a cult. Talk about a feckless cult.

Oh, Hi Quboid

We must sacrifice more chickens to Moloch

the game is fun if you managed to get a few billion from a gold rush. There is no way in hell i would grind credits. ED has mobile fremium game grind levels for credits.

I feel the opposite, the fun part is starting out and being a little fish in an ocean filled with bigger fish wanting to eat you. The addiction of wanting to earn enough credits to buy a better ship, so that you can earn more credits to buy a better ship. Once you reach the point of equal or greater footing among stronger enemies it loses it's luster.

If they'd just add the option to fast-travel to stations, it would eliminate a huge chuck of the boring grind. Take a lesson from TES.

lol, that's like saying if they only allowed you to fast travel between airports in a flight simulator it would eliminate a huge chunk of the boring grind.

That's what this game is, a simulator. A sandbox space simulator.

That "boring grind" of traveling between space stations is what it's all about, it's never going to be an episodic space shooter with cut scenes and a linear story.

It's going to be interesting to see how they implement vehicles in their PUBG clone, I skipped the one where you fly space ships but the previous ones where you drove a tank, jeep or plane were comical at best.

If it was claiming to be 100% historically accurate, I would care... but it's not. Just looking at the trailer's thumbnail you can tell it's not taking itself seriously.

There are hardcore realism games like Squad, Post Scriptum and ARMA, and then there's Battlefield and Call of Duty, which pander to sales. Appreciation for historically accurate games has gone down the drain, because there's so little to work with (from our perspective at least - how many times do we have to take back France from the Nazis?!).

It's not a political statement, it's a game about shooting other people and having fun. With WW2 weapons. There are many things to be concerned about in today's world and this game is not one of them, lol.

DICE isn't using the term "Historically accurate" as far as I know, but they do keep saying "Authentic WWII experience" they just need to replace "Authentic" with "Fantastical".

It wouldn't do much to pleasing those wanting something "authentic" but at least it would be more true to what the game is. Complete fantasy.
But this rabbit hole is bottomless. You can say that even games striving for realism and accuracy are fantasies because they depict events that haven't happened; even Squad, for instance, has reviving and respawning and the scenarios you play aren't historical reenactments. ARMA 3 is about a made-up future conflict.

Even documentaries or history books are curated because 1) there is never absolute information certainty about even events that are in the information age and 2) day-to-day minutiae even of the most thrilling historical events are bound to be boring.

It's all about storytelling. An authentic experience can be historically inaccurate and not suffer for it at all.

No need to go down the rabbit hole when what people are complaining about is right on the surface. I'm pretty sure we have enough historical information about WWII to make something "authentic". People are already digging up information about how there were amputee spies and soldiers during WWII, no mechanical armed snipers though but honestly I wouldn't be surprised if there were.

A fictional WWII setting is fine, the disconnect is when you try to overlap that with real historical events and then try to claim that you're being authentic to that event. To those that don't find the day-to-day minutia of historical events boring it reeks of historical revisionism, and thus their panties are in a wad over it.

Maybe DICE can find the right balance between inclusivity and WWII authenticity without it looking like a scene from Suicide Squad.

The PROBLEM is that now they aren't announcing exactly how much post-launch support a game will get. We still have no idea WTF is happening with Battlefront's post-launch "live service", and if BF V goes in the same direction it could be a catastrofuck.


Battlefront 2 players know all about "games as a service" and extra content.

I think what DICE will end up doing is making a bunch of maps for the game but slowly release them over time, making the initial content weaker at release but keeping people interested in playing with "new content" drops every couple of months.

If the cosmetics turn out to be a non plus on the revenue side then after they release the existing maps for the game they'll assign the support devs to a new project.
