I had a mostly good time with my ten hours. That said I noticed a lot of bugs in the game that have plague all of the Dice titles. The friendly indicators are still occasionally wrong or missing. Also noticed the spotting option was very erratic. I was targeting and identifying enemy troops and armor yet tapping the Q button would not highlight them ninety percent of the time. Once I spotting a scout just before he rounded a corner into the canyon. Since I had a shotgun and I could not kill him from that distance I spotted him with Q then gave chase. Even though I had just spotted him the icon only stayed on him for maybe two or three seconds before it vanished along with him down the canyon. Another time I was in a light tank in third person perspective and an enemy troop was trying to take cover in craters near a flag as I approached him he became invisible then reappears twenty feet away in another crater from where I had last saw him. The most annoy problem which is still there is what I call the game playing out of sync. The best way to discribe it is being killed by somebody who doesn't have a line of sight on you. What I mean by that is I'm running down an alley and ten feet in I am shot dead. The kill cam shows me the enemy location and he is on the other side of the building and has no line of sight to shoot me... unless he shot me several seconds before while I entered into that alley.
I'm just wondering is anyone else having this type of inconstant buggy gameplay?
Your tale of spotting the sniper around the corner is actually how the mechanic is supposed to work, when the spotted person breaks line-of-sight, then the spot dissapears, I'm guessing it's calculated by the person who spotted them, perhaps if more than 1 person spots them, then it has a better chance to stay around longer if 1 soldier still has line-of-sight.
The only exception is vehicles, they stay spotted even around corners for the full duration.
That being said, there's definitely some bugs (spotting about 10% of the time just wouldn't work, and my Q wasn't "overheated" as it can become if you spam spot), a lot less than BF4 had, but it's still a Battlefield title, with any system with lots of moving parts, there's bound to be bugs. It's actually more polished an experience than I expected from DICE on launch to be honest, the menus, browsers, lots of cool stuff to discover.
