Just coming here from watching AngryJoe's rant, I don't know whether to laugh at the sheer ineptitude and incompetence of Dice or to be sad that a formerly great developer that made gems like BF1942 and BF2 has sunk so low.
indeed, unfortunately, those who made those great BF games are no longer part of Dice.

HZ needs serious work, I only tried it about 3 times. Top kills 19 and did not escape in any of the matches because my team were 100% clueless and 2/3 console users; Did not hit anything and did not even supply team with health or ammo.

Seems like a rushed mode. Has potential tho.

10GB day one patch is coming tomorrow. I hope some bugs are ironed out and things are changed for the better.

There's already a small pre-patch out now. Servers run way better, just did 84 kills in breakthrough 😆 Can't seem to hit 100 kills.

I wish they had an awesome title for 100 kills...
Yeah, the patch did make things seem smoother. Unfortunately, they will not patch out the lame specialists, bad map design, and horrible group mechanics.

Of all possible scenarios and angles of pictures, techspot shows one with definitely look as female soldier. Well, I could not be more happy if the conscription rules shall be changed.
GO EQUALITY!

Specialists are here to stay. Why do you play the game if you don't like it? Everyone knew specialists would be a thing in BF 2042, how can this come as a surprise 🤣 I like them. This is 2021 not 2011, the old slow paced BF experience is gone. Go play the older games if you want slow. I don't miss much and everyone seems to forget that most of the older BF games sucked on release tho; Performance issues, lack of content etc. Nothing new.

I don't think the 1.8GB patch was the day one patch. I read day one patch would be 10GB. We will see.

Map design is fine and more maps will come. Most of the maps are awesome I think, I don't hate any of them and I love Renewal and Manifest.

Game was way smoother last night. Finally hit 100 kills in a match. Complete domination. Where is my title for 100 kills tho? I got Apex Predator in the first 1 or 2 matches on launch day.. We need something for the top 1% fps players to chase. Apex Predator is way too easy to get, I'm pretty much at 50+ kills in all matches, 42 kills is a low requirement. Should have been 50 minimum.

Looking to kill some peasants tonight with the influx of newbs with no map knowledge or unlocks.

This is me later today;

The day 1 patch landed yesterday at 6.8gb. Map design is not fine....massive empty spaces in between a few weirdly rendered buildings, no flow for balanced infantry/vehicle gameplay. They basically tried to mix hero shooter mechanics with Battlefield. Luckily, all the actual Battlefield devs left DICE ages ago, so hopefully they can actually make a decent game.

Thats your opinion. I like it 😁

Maybe stop playing the game if you don't like it 😂 Who forces you to play it?

I like this BF more than BF V and Hardline for sure. It will age much better too. Portal is a blast. Endless content in this game.

Mark my words; This game will end up having the most content of all BF games, ever; Portal (endless possibilities). Battle Pass (skins, weapons, titles and more). DLC (maps, vehicles, specialists) and more games modes incoming.

Looking forward to play this game on/off over the next many years. They are copying COD/Warzone approach and Apex/Fortnite obviously, it will be a LONG RUNNING GAME with more and more content over time. This is what most players want, that is why those games are popular .. it's real simple - people will play what they like to play, and these games are the most popular.

Warzone will still be played. I need my BR wins too.

Most of the former "BF devs" works at Ubisoft now, so good luck getting a "proper BF" 😉

DICE BF devs are here...Embark Studios

And, the fact that BF has moved towards Fortnite and COD/Warzone, and is being celebrated, shows how much they no longer respect their own IP.

Battlefield in name only....better off making 2042 a new franchise, rather than a continuation of an established and loved series of games.

If you Google, you will see that tons of former BF devs are now at Ubisoft too, and some BF Veterans left too, for doing other stuff, they are not at Embark Studios. Most people at ES are not former DICE employees. Hired later.

Do you really expect they will deliver a flawless "old school BF game"? When? In 2025?

However, there's exactly zero chance you will see an "old school BF experience" from Embart Studios. If this is what their project is about, they would announce it to create hype. Did you read about the project? It's hazy, sounds nothing like a BF game. Open world pvp... Squad based, sounds more like a Battle Royale than BF 😆

I don't care about respecting IPs if games are improved. I like specialists and so does alot of other people, if you don't, Portal exist with tons of old school BF modes and maps with way better visuals than the originals. Everything feels identical; Gun feel and maps, identical down to the sounds. The addition of specialists has been known since early stages of 2042, nothing new. How can it come as a surprise for anyone 😂 don't buy the game if you don't like the idea.

BF is about all-out Warfare. It has never been about infantry focus. Gunplay is much worse than COD in this regard. And this is exactly what 2042 delivers, in a 2042 setting. Specialists makes sense. Large maps makes sense. That's why you can call in vehicles, or call in a ranger. Futuristic combat. BF/COD don't sell if they release the same crap year after year using the same setting. Some like WW1 settings, other don't. Hence the changes.

Once again, why play the game if you don't like it 🤣 Lots of people like it and the game is only going to get better over time.

This game is way better than Hardline from 2015 .. who made that game? Your beloved BF veterans did... 🤣 BF 2042 already outsold Hardline with ease, BF V too

Hardline wasn't created by DICE, it was handed over to Visceral Games.
Embark Games was indeed founded by lead devs at DICE.

BF 2042 is like the version of BF we would get in Idiocracy. Every feature boiled down into MOAR MOAR MOAR.

MOAR players....but the maps still have massive unused spaces and flow is terrible.

Need a vehicle...just drop one outta the sky. Need a gun....just magic attachments outta thin air.

Lets see if Embart Studios will bring you an old school BF game then 🤣🤣

What they need is aggressive SBMM but I doubt there's the player base for that

God what happend to that era where you'd buy a floppy or cd-rom of the original game, and it was running out of the box and as intended. Today's people are by default beta testers now, and they are actually paying for it todo so.

Techspot, are you going to run an article about how bad the game is? You're very fast to point out Cyberpunk and the GTA Trilogy launches but BF2042 has somehow not made it into the press yet.

Out of the three, Cyberpunk was actually the best launch which is hilarious.

I think the results from ultra to medium show that RDNA2 is heavily bottlenecked by memory bandwidth. Maybe this can be negated with more infinite cache?
 
This article is a total lie. There is no way they are getting these frame rates. I want to see exact configurations and videos to prove it. I have a 3090 and a 6800xt on two different rigs with 11700k and see no where near these numbers. I tried these on a 1080p monitor and get 110 max if I am lucky, but on average run 80-90 fps. Nothing seems to help. I get almost double on bfV on ultra settings! Changing the quality barely even makes a difference. This game is so messed up.
