I know what you two mean about not being so good with FPS anylonger. I'm fifty one now and besides getting a bit long in the tooth the arthritis screws with my fingers a bit. So it takes me a while to warm up sometimes... if I warm up at all.
I still like to run and gun but not always so well these days.
In reference to your comment on netcode. My experience so far has been that it is the same as all other BF games. At times it is awesome and at times it almost makes me rage quit.
I just dropped from a server to take a break because the game was playing like shit. Lag during close combat, lots of strange things happening, and one shot kills by people with no line of sight on me. By strange things I mean buggy gameplay. I could hear an enemy running up the spiral tower stairs so I waited pistol drawn on the other side of a closed door. The door opened and he was not there. He then shot me in the back. LoL, WTF!
Regarding your comment about balance and higher level players having an advantage... it sure seems to still be in there. Though it may be our perception since most of the highest level players now are either very very good, hacking to rack up those points fast, or playing every waking hour to reach fifty plus level already. But while in game getting one shot killed by people running around jumping repeatedly using weapons I have access to which are not very accurate let alone capable of one shot kills makes it appear as if they have some other edge with higher levels. I've been shot from long distances (one shot killed) by weapons that have poor accuracy at close range and I am left wondering how the fuck they do it all while running and jumping around. Crazy shit.
edit: Not that I am not having a blast with BF1. I am. Just in short bursts of a few hours at a time. The frustration factor is much higher today because the browser bugginess has gone through the roof and actually joining a server is a huge pain in the ass right now. Must be a DDOS attack because they have more servers up than people could fill.This comment was edited on Oct 21, 2016, 14:56.
