Battlefield 1 Fall Update

The promised fall update for Battlefield 1 is now live, offering a bunch of changes and fixes for DICE's World War 1 first-person shooter. This post is filled with details, but the complete patch notes are even fuller. Among the major alterations are reworks to conquest and operations modes. Here's word on those changes:
OPERATIONS CHANGES:
Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. Its clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. Weve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left.

64 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets from 150 to 250
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Increased the amount of minimum ticket regained when capturing a sector in 64p Operations from 30 to 50.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

40 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets to 200 from 150
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

CONQUEST CHANGES:
Weve listened to your feedback in regards to the Suez Conquest layout in regards to balance. We will be adding two more flags to the layout, this should result in one team not being able to capture and lock down all flags as easy as before. In addition, we also noticed that it was very difficult to re-capture flags within the capture areas located in the village areas. To solve this weve reduced the capture size of these areas to include less buildings. The result of this should make the flags somewhat easier to capture and make sure that a team that has lost and been pushed out of the villages can easier re-capture them and get back into the fight. In addition, to help a team that has been pushed back all the way to their HQ, weve added an armored car that players can use to break out of the HQ and flank the opposing team.

  • Added two additional flags on the Suez map, giving it a total of 5 flags.
  • Added 1 armored car for either team to spawn in their HQ.
  • Reduced the size of the capture volumes on the flags located in the villages, old A & B flag. This is to reduce the amount of building interiors located within the capture area. The change should result in the flags being easier to capture.

I finally had some free time last weekend to try this. I downloaded Origin only to find that my account was completely empty, which was every applicable BF title pre-BF4. This is like my ultimate online distribution nightmare.

I guess once you link a purchase in Origin it's just a roll of the dice if you can keep your purchases after a period of inactivity. A bit of a bummer that it's all gone now.


Until Origin closes down for good, those purchases are yours and should not be deleted. Contact them you want all your purchases back immediatly.

As for the game, I am just happy that I didn't purchase it. Since BF3 I've no interest in Dice since their terrible attitude towards the mod community.

You would think right?

Tried EA support tonight for about an hour.. waited 30 min. on a Chrome session and then tried it again on IE, no response. I'll give it a shot tomorrow. I will try to send another Origin error report, but those have not been answered to date.
