Got a few games in this evening, ran really smooth, graphics were good. Really enjoyed the first few games. Didn't have any lag, liked all the maps I played except for one night map. Overall first impression was outstanding!

Got in several rounds with HC, Retro, Blackwater, Landshark, and Scooby tonight. Had a blast playing with people again. We had some ups and downs, but I'm not sure we will ever be able to top winning heist match with nothing but ammo packs and bats. Heh

Is this the right War Stories thread?

I managed to grab a few games tonight and in my usual style played like a fully signed up member of the dazed and confused old farts association.
It may get easier once I learn the maps.

Match making was completely broken for me.
Spike and Curahee patiently wasted half an hour trying to get me in a squad, but it wouldn't let me join on either the in game squad menu or the Battlelog method.
In the end I backed out of the game, went into the PS friend list and joined in there.
Although it then puts me outside of the private squad.

It was good fun once we were up and running.

Then I grabbed a quick conquest with Remec, Southtown and Sensei.
Ran around a map looking for people to no avail, but still won!

Then noticed it was gone 2am and thought I'd better quit while I was behind.

Hope match making improves, but looking forward to clocking up some game time with MPs on this one.

Really enjoying the hotwire mode. I bought the RPG for both the coupe and sedan, really fun destroying cars. I think the breaching charge is a little op in my opinion (though I'm sure people think the RPG is also) but the people hiding next to the bridges with breaching charges are aggravating as hell. At least while using the RPG I'm still playing the objective.

Good times last night with HB, HC, Blackwater, Retro, and Freak. Got in several rounds of Hotwire, then moved on to small conquest. I think we had the top 5 scores on every match for our side, got ace squad, and somehow still lost...hard to find blueberries who know how to PTFO! Managed to get my first piece of hardline hatemail though due to how well our squad was holding down points. :wink:

It must be my age, but I'm struggling to find my way around the menus and all the loadout options. Seems way more complicated than it needs to be.
Only just found how to apply the bonus XP last night...not that it matters much because 50% of sweet FA still totals sweet FA!!! Lol

Finding a good heli pilot on Hotwire pretty much secures the match with instant squad spawn over the vehicles as they pop up, and I found switching between gunner and repair proves quite effective.
I agree with others that the breaching charge is a royal pain in the ass, so taking the road less travelled definitely pays off.

Time to try some different modes tonight.

Hey Hardline MPeeps! I'm looking forward to getting in a round or two with some MPeeps. I never seem to have much time to game but when I do I prefer it to be with MPs (said like the Dos Equis guy).

I'm liking Hardline but I suck so bad right now that it isn't funny. Really need to squad-up with you guys so I can learn the ropes. Lots of new stuff in this BF game that I have to figure out. Hope to see you on the mean streets of BF Hardline!

Thanks to Clip for putting up with my diabolical gaming skills.
Some games, I can barely advance to the objective without going through a vicious 'die/spawn/die/spawn/die/spawn/die' routine.
There could be 5 squad mates stood against a wall and it feels like every time, I'm the only damn fool to get dropped! So close to launching my DS4 through the window.
Good to grab a few with Badgerute as well.

Being a week behind, after several matches getting beat up in heist with my starter guns I had to go play some hotwire to make the $$$. Maybe I can afford a defrib now, ooooh boy.
Nice to get in with some MPs, even though none of us were mic'd, I was mostly useless, and I'm not sure if we won any matches. Still fun running with the pack!

^ Good skillz to the X1 crew representing the Team in such a prolific way.
(Although the PS enemies must be much tougher, as I am never that high up the board! :bolt:)


I played one round of 'Rescue' or 'Hostage' or something like that, with Clip last night.
And I did enjoy the feel of the game mode, it had more of a stealth feel like Search and Destroy.
I did find it confusing as I had released one hostage and it wasn't clear that I couldn't release the second one before the first one had been taken back to the truck.
Definitely a good mode with a squad of MPs.
When it plays out over seven rounds or so, it becomes like chess where you're trying to second guess where the enemy will be heading compared to the last round.

Yeah, I hear ya. Played a match last night after everyone went to bed. CQ small on Downtown map. I'm so sick of blueberries. I would take A, head over and take C. By the time I'd take C, we'd already lost A, so head back there and take it, while the enemy gets C back. Did this a few times, and figured I'd stay on the one I just took and defend it hoping blueberries would get the other. No joy. So my match was running back and forth between A and C capping them, meanwhile the OP had B the whole time. It was a joke. I ended up top score on my team with 15,813, and the highest on the other side was 7,336. We STILL lost by 31 tickets (though were down by 150 at one point). We even had more kills, which explains a lot, as my team seemed to think we were playing TDM.

I played a few rounds of each rescue, crosshair, and blood money. Crosshair plays out like a more straightforward version of rescue. I imagine it could be more strategic, but my experience was just which team could hunt down and kill the other first. I like these quick little game modes for something different or a short session.

Comms are a must. Don't see it being fun with blueberries.

As far as lone-wolfing it for a short gaming session while I waited for the girls to get ready to head out on a daytrip, (Could be 20 minutes, could be 2 hours), I definitely found Blood-Money to be more fun. The longer matches wasn't quite as suitable for easy to jump in and jump back out when needed, but it seems like a game mode that could be played strategically, or not, and most everyone was contributing in one way or another even by doing the random things that randoms do. Obviously a team using strategy and comms would likely be more effective than one not, but I was still able to have fun without it. Though, to be fair, I felt like it was a "fun" game mode, more than a challenging, try to win game mode. My team lost, but I got a good amount of kills, recovered a fat stack of cash, and was happy with it.

The handful of matches of rescue I played were pretty disorganized. As cops, it seemed like 2-3 of the squad would head directly towards the hostages, the other guy would head out in a flanking maneuver. I'd flank with that guy. The ones who headed straight in would get killed quickly and the last 2 of us would try and come around behind and kill off any remaining criminals. The success of this often depended on if they had a sniper somewhere, and how well positioned they were. I tried mixing things up a time or two, and flaking closer to come in the side at the same time the 2-3 went in the front. This usually resulted in me picking off a criminal or two, reviving 1-2 teammates quickly before the op4 backup found us and took me down. Most of the time we won this way, trading my life for revives making a key difference. But it wasn't all that much fun. A well organized squad with comms could probably dominate this game mode for hours. Not sure how long it would stay fun though, unless they ran up against another well organized squad.

Most of the Crosshair I played I was in a squad with 3 people flying the same tags, and another random. If they were using comms, it wasn't in game, but they were pretty effective. I can only recall losing 1 match, I think we got cocky and pushed forward too fast. There were plenty of matches though where my cautious advance netted me little more than a couple spots or assists, so despite winning, the lack of kills made it less fun. But in general it was more of a quick showdown/shootout that could be a lot of fun for some short sessions of immediate action.

It's been great to catch a few MPs on early (your time), but it still creeps into 1-2 am territory by the time I shut down. So my head is normally nodding towards the end.

Had some good games with Czech and Clip last night, and again it was a shame EpicCal couldn't join our squad.

Spend the $40 and get the game on Amazon if you can! I can say, Visceral definitely impressed me with very few issues at release in comparison to the horrible debacle Dice released in BF4.

Like pretty much every Multiplayer game that I've played, there are ALWAYS issues (hit detection, OP weapons, etc, etc...) and it will definitely stress even the most calm individual quite a bit but I feel most of that stress is due to my inability to be a good player. So, if I can see past the minor issues and my shitty game play then yes I can honestly say I enjoy the game and would recommend it to someone that isn't you!

Hopefully you don't consider my opinion asshole! :ak::becky:

Speaking of OP weapons, I'm not going to be putting in the time that I did with BF4. Is it possible to play this casually and still be competitive? Or will the players with all the unlocks rip you a new one. That is why I am thinking about getting MK10. I won't be playing the MP in it and just go through the story with my favorite characters.

I'd say it depends on the game mode, you can have loads of fun being a douche bag like I was last night playing Hotwire...find the routes people like to use and drop some c4 in the road and wait for the multi-kills to rack up. In conquest you might get raped because you wont know maps and routes at first but once you learn a few of them you should be ok. Heist is also fun fast games that you can be competitive in with no unlocks...and BTW it doesn't take much to get the good OP guns...get the Limited edition if you can so you can get the ACW-R, that will get you started off on the right foot.

I was really on the fence because I hadn't got my money's worth out of BF4, but glad I did go for it in the end because when you do get a squad of MPs on new modes like Hotwire, not only is it hilarious, but with the skill level of you guys, you can pretty much guarantee a win.

The frustrations I have from this game aren't from the dodgy build of the game, but from my inability to press the right buttons in the right order.
A man of your capability should be golden!

That being said, if you buy it and hate it then it is pretty much Southtowns fault.

*Edit
In my limited BF experience, nothing felt new and exciting with regards to weapons/ maps/ gun play, but tearing down the streets with the bass pumping and your squad hanging out the windows is a must.
The SP isn't too shabby either, although not particularly challenging to a BF vet the style of the story is fairly original (albeit predictable plot)

It's still frustrating RC because the game is built on the old prepatch Frostbite engine from BF4. On top of that the time to kill is faster in this game. Thus you can expect a lower KDR. Everyone has a lower KDR by some degree because this game is more CQC and a fast TTK. Anyhow with that being said if you can just accept that like I'm trying to do it's a blast. Besides the only reason to play is to joke around and hang out with everyone. Like dog said there are many ways to get some cheap kills and laughs. My new favorites are sabotaging doors and weapons. Last night I sabotaged an LMG pickup weapon only to die from a guy that just saw me do it. What does the guy do? He picks up the weapon and I see him blow up in the kill cam. AWESOME!

Oh and I can't forget my all time favorite is the taser. It's hilarious when you taze someone and have a huge group of dudes interrogate him. It looks super gay but funny.

I would like to add the following to the police reports. I don't know if it's against MP policy but apparently this game has gone straight to Remec's head. I don't know if he's playing too much hotwire but maybe someone should see if he's ok. Remec tried to take down a car in Montreal yesterday and made the news.

Thanks to Czech and Carpe Mortis for the good games tonight.
I'm still so bad at conquest it just isn't funny, but when there is an objective like blood money or similar I can hold my own even with my usual pissy kdr.
The new modes are certainly keeping me coming back for more.

Well.....so it begins.....again. Hooked up with the MP's on Friday and last night for some games on Hardline.....both nights well into the 1-2AM range.

Hardline is now starting to grow on me aside from the usual online issues...lag, kill trades and such. Blood money was 100x better playing with a squad and communication.

Is it me or are some maps limited to certain game modes? Either way, great to re-unite with some of the MP's that helped get me hooked into the BF franchise from the BC2 and BF3 days. Fun times as always.

I'm on the fence about getting this or Mortal Kombat X. Seriously, is this game worth the $60? (I can get it for $40 on Amazon) Or am I going to be frustrated like I was in BF4 and hate myself for giving EA more of my money? Believe or not, I do trust your opinions. Except for maybe Southtown's.

Like most BF games, I really enjoy this when I get to play with MP's on a winning team. Playing with rando's on a shitty team totally blows. I'm trying to get myself to just quit when the team I'm on sucks, but I never like to be that guy who doesn't give the team a chance to turn it around.

The game is super stable in my opinion - very little and infrequent warping. You still get a lot of mutual kills, but I've never really hated those cause they help my kdr :)

Also really like that in general MP's are playing Hotwire, Heist and Bloodmoney rather than CQ. Games where you can play the objective reasonably well, and bitch about the dickheads not playing the objective and just going for cheap kills.

I also laugh a lot in game - way more than I ever did with BF4 or BF3 that's for sure. Really crazy, funny shit happens. And the music and fast pace just makes it seem more alive than BF4 ever was.

Like Beano said - not a game to play if you care about your KDR. In most Hotwire games, I'm going like 3-8 or worse, but it's OK cause I'm playing the objective and road-killing camping bitches and RPG whores never, ever gets old.

I played a lot of Hotwire today while no one else was playing. I've found that staying in a capture car the entire game is a good way to activate all four perks. One of my best kills was while hanging out of the back of a car fending off attackers. I thought the car chasing was just about the right distance for the delay time of a grenade. I tossed my one and only grenade onto the ground. When it exploded it took out the car and all four passengers. LMAO

Nice nade kill, love to see it if you had time to share it.

I agree I need to get some more Hotwire in as it is a lot of fun, plus it would be handy to pimp up some of the lesser used vehicles to use is other's game types.

Pretty much owned it last night with Teach, HC and Blackwater. Sckrapps joined in but sadly for him, he was on the other team (sorry about the tea-bagging .....well, not really :ak:).

Teach joined HC and I late on Downtown. I swear HC & I were able to inspire the blueberries. Down by nearly 100 points, the two of us pretty much held both A & C before Teach came in to back us up. Suddenly the blueberries actually began playing the objective and while we knocked over 400 tickets off the enemy, they were only able to take away about 25 of ours from that point.

The tide turned later with Tonka on Hotwire, where we were pretty much leading the charge in most matches which made a nice change.

Good times. I'm hooked on Blood Money, but it is definitely chaotic and easy to have rounds where you can't seem to accomplish much. I like that their are multiple ways to PTFO though. One of the Better rounds I had score wise I think we spent 90% of the match defending our own vault.

Good to hook up with you guys.

I like to play Hotwire if I want a definite win... most people don't seem to realise that you just need to get in one of those cars and drive like a nutter to rack up the wins. Everyone seems to spend their time shooting each other! I normally plant a satphone near a car and then if you get killed, you spawn right next to the new car again. Easy money!

I'll even wire up a car with sabotage, drive it close to the baddies and hop out - tee hee.

I did have a bit of a laugh with the breaching charges when I couldn't get in a car - you may have heard me laughing maniacally, Stains. However that feels a bit cheap as the maps really limit where you can drive.

Every match we played we won and all 4 of us were in the top of our team. Hell, I went 0-12 and got MVP of the match; by a lot. The boring part is just jumping in a car, driving in circles, getting breach charged into oblivion, rinse and repeat. Then you got the weirdos off on a hill sniping (freak) or jumping in your car to help but not even having a damn repair tool (freak). It boils down to, if I want to drive I'll play Forza.

Personally I would start out with the Assault Class (medic). So obviously you want the med pack and defib/syringe. For grenades, the incendiary are awesome. For guns, I like the SG553 (cops) or the AKS (criminals) or the ACWR (both). Best set up for guns which produce the most accuracy and control;

Optics - Your choice, I really like the Kobra sight.
Accessory - Laser sight - improves control
Muzzle - Heavy barrel - improves accuracy
Grip - Stubby grip - better control & accuracy

For the Assault class I really like the G17 as the side-arm as well.

had some fun times watching Blackout blow stuff up last night in a few games of hotwire...our team somehow would decide to go down by a couple hundred tickets before they decided to start driving cars. So the games looked tight but in reality they were full of trolls (Blackout would at least jump in car from time to time) that would only play the last few minutes of the round.

I did spend one game "guarding" a vehicle just because I was having fun with it, I also had a good laugh when a random Nade blew up one of the objective cars along with it's three occupants as one of them was hanging out the window trying to shoot me :car: + :ak: = :boom:

It was near impossible to get close to that money stash in the middle without getting destroyed. I might jump on again tonight for one or two, possibly more depending on the chief if she wants to watch a movie or not.

Still not able to get back online in Hardline since getting disconnected last night. Also can not get into BF4 online but Rocket League connects fine.

Edit: RB6 Siege also connects without problems.

EA/BF problem perhaps?
