Hoping to be on tonight around 7pm pacific.

As of last night, they didn't have the trial pop up fixed. If it still isn't fixed, I'll be playing something else.

Supposed fixes for pop up issue; EDIT: I tried both fixes. Second one worked for me.

Here's one:
Before attempting to reset your Xbox One (which can cause loss of files), try resetting your MAC Address.
How to Reset MAC Address:
Go to Network Settings ->Advanced -> Alternate MAC Address
Select “Clear MAC Address”
The Xbox One will restart.
This is the safest way to fix the problem, although it doesn’t seem to work for everyone. This method will not result in any lost files or deleted apps / settings.

Here's another:
WARNING: The second method involves resetting your Xbox One console — not restarting, RESETTING. If your Xbox save files are not synced to the Xbox Live cloud, they may*become*lost forever.*
If the first method didn’t work for you, try resetting the Xbox One console. Here’s how to do it:
How to Reset the Xbox One:
Select Settings [Left on Home] -> All Settings -> System
System -> Console Info & Updates -> Reset Console
Select “Reset and keep my games and apps”
If you don’t select “Reset and keep my games and apps” you’ll lose all currently downloaded software, save files, and anything else on your HD. We suggest you don’t do that — although resetting still has a chance to cause other problems; you will lose any preferences settings and Xbox gamertag info.
Even if you select “Reset and keep my games and apps” — it may still delete a majority of your games / apps. Use this trick at your own risk.

So I played another match last night. Had an absolute blast. It ran perfectly smooth. I'm not sure if it's just me or not, but it seems like it takes way less bullets to drop a foe, which I love.

Don't know the name of the map, but it was the semi-destroyed town (flags C and D were on bridges). Loved the map.

Second fix listed above worked for me on the trial pop up issue.

I managed to grab a few rounds with HC and saw Forny on the enemy side via a killcam!
Played St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Suez and the old faithful Sinai.
Love the Mainland maps, some nice detail has gone into them.

All in all seemed to be playing quite smoothly. Same as before, the tanks etc rarely came up for me and when they did the spawn campers grabbed them quick.
The pace is fast and furious with little time to plan attacks, I was spawn killed on more than one occasion.
Hit detection all seemed fine for me, although I was falling victim to one shot kills more often than not.

The trial timer bug was pure comedy for me, every single time I would see an enemy and try to run up on them with a clear advantage of a kill. The warning would kick in and sure enough by the time I was back in the game I was dead. The timing couldn't have been any more hilarious. I can see why some people might get upset by it, but hey, it's a free trial and nothing compared to many other launch bugs/ broken games I've encountered over the years.

As with everything, this game is so much more enjoyable with MPs.
Randoms were running around in all directions.

Can't wait for the full version next week.

Just couldn't get this song out of my head when I was running around after it though...

(Got a feeling that cartoon dates me somewhat)

Other conquest rounds I got thoroughly dominated, never seen scores like it. To the point where the guys in our train seemed like they were on the other team they were so useless.

Tough going as a lone wolf. Can't wait to squad up with some MPeeps. Not long now.

I'll bet. Or maybe we should try a few rounds of hardcore just to get it out of our system :gunner::flame:
On a different note, it seems you won't be seeing me bleeding out as soon as I thought. Seems my preorder edition, though it's already in the mail, and ordered ages ago, marked "pre-order edition" with release date October 18th, now is a pre-order edition with release date October 21th. Problem with online shopping - no poor, mostly innocent clerk to shout at.

Will get the Hellfighter pack, though. I guess that's a perk of sorts.:Cry:

If you played the Beta, how does it compare to that?

Correction. Got my game in the mail today. Installed and started it, so far it seems quite playable. Just tested for a few seconds on conquest while my wife was looking the other way. House still full of parents, but tomorrow might look good for a BF1 kickoff for me. Joy!

@Red. Thanks for the games, sorry I couldn't join you on mic, trying to smooth the waters this end before the Battlefest begins on Friday.

Playing the Ballroom Blitz I was running towards the Chateux when the Airship comes into view with biplanes strafing it. I just had to stop and watch the scene with my mouth agog. Amazing stuff.

After a full day playing BF1, the only thing I'll say is bravo dice on redeeming yourself after a terrible bf4 launch. I'm sure there a few glitches still but for the most part my gameplay was uninterrupted .

I'll give a review later this week.

I finally got the game to download and only played a couple of Team Death Matches this morning. So far though I am not impressed. The game still feels like a beta. There are still delays opening menus which is frustrating. I have to play it a lot more, but right now this does not feel like a Battlefield game to me.

I also couldn't believe how many a-holes are already camping in corners with shotguns. Must be those pussy millennials. They ruin everything.

Picked up my copy yesterday and got to play a few rounds. I'm enjoying it. It's taking me a bit of time to get use to it since it's been a few weeks since the beta. Also, after playing Sinai desert so many times in the beta I'm not use to the other maps yet.

But I didn't do too bad. I can't remember the name of the map that I was on in my second game, but I managed to get into a light tank and defended an island battery flag for a few minutes. Got several kills. Trying to get back into flying. I think I'm going to spend tonight on Sinai Desert again since I'm use to it in order to get my bearings.

I'll be on the xbox tonight around 9pm if anyone feels like joining me.

Here's a scenario for the first set DLC...


Wreck of German U-boat found off coast of Stranraer.
and Yes... it does say that the WW1 U-Boat might have been sunk by a sea monster!



The wreck of a German U-boat that sank almost 100 years ago has been discovered by engineers laying subsea power cables.

Remarkable sonar images show the missing World War One submarine is largely intact and lying off the Galloway coast.

Experts believe the vessel could be the UB-85, a sub that sunk in 1918, according to official records.

However, naval folklore suggests it may have been attacked by a "sea monster".

Got stuck in the queue trying to squad up with Remec so I went back for more of the SP, I certainly thought that aspect looked great and gave me the opportunity to sort of set my solider up as far as controls are concerned, and especially set up the vehicle controls almost to my liking. I didn't find any option for the vehicle zoom to be set for toggle while the character zoom was not...but I made it work for the most part.

Lots of cinematic scenes to start the campaign and it felt like in some cases you were destined to die...maybe it's because I always play those on hard mode but I got whooped a few times straight away. After a bit I started to get in the groove and will certainly finish the campaign this week.

You'll all be amused to know that I've already messed up a stealth mission thoroughly on campaign, by elegantly lobbing grenades instead of using the binoculars as intended. I think it may be some kind of special power I have. Some heroes can fly, lift a car with two fingers, and I - I am the Frag Fumbler.

Not good. Can't comment on PS side, but on the xBone (for me anyway) everything is smooth as can be. Zero complaints, and I'm loving it. Only gripe is that I've only had enough time to sit down with it for one or 2 matches max, and out of the 10ish total matches I've played, I've only seen 2 maps (but that's jut unlucky).

For Retro, I actively paid attention last night, and I'd say that no, the matches do not take long to get into between rounds or for the first time.

I started to play the Tank part of the campaign. I stopped when it turned into Far Cry in the second mission. Why the hell would you send the driver of the tank out to scout the area in front of it?

I got a feeling this was just to illustrate the sheer futility of being a foot soldier during this conflict, with a very short life expectancy. To me this gave the opening sequences some serious gravity. Well impressed.

The new Operations mode also had a nice feel to it. Giving a real feeling of ebb and flow to trench warfare as it truly was. One month of brutal fighting to gain a few hundred yards only to lose it again the following week.
It felt like with a full squad of MPs in tow, it would be very satisfying pushing an objective or defending a sector from the enemy.

This game is still impressing me a lot.

I also got to jump in the Airship for the first time as a gunner, boy those pack a punch. I was raining hell on the enemy and bailed as the ship as going down in flames. Good times.

Reading all these posts while laying in bed just caused me to say out loud " I'm horny....." which caused my wife to roll over towards me. Telling her I was referring to being horny for BF1 felt the same as telling my kids there was no Santa.

As much as I loved reading this, and that it's clearly none of my business - a question lingers in my mind: Why on Earth would you tell her that? Isn't that a bit like winning the lottery, and then refusing to accept the winnings due to the fact that the money used to purchase the lottery ticket really was meant to by something sensible and boring - like napkins matching the drapes in your dining room? Unless she rolled over just to let you know that - no mister, that's not going to happen. In which case I'd still think the wise choice would be to shut up about BF1. I'm rambling, never mind.

Has it ever been possible to do this from the main menu? I know it's been possible to do this through the app, and this works on the BF1 Companion as well. Would be nice to be able to do this from the main menu though, can't really see the difference or why they wouldn't want it.

So reading between the lines, what you are basically saying is that you only get to empty your sack once a year and can only do it whilst fantasising about spooning fallen teammates!?!

Lol! My wife is a wonderful woman who completely gets my humor and sarcasm. Give me some credit: I did say to her I was referring to Battlefield 1. Had I used the acronym BF1, I would have had to explain in detail "BF1" was not an acronym for her "Best Friend #1"

Looking forward to playing Operations at some point, sounds interesting to be "mix of Rush and Conquest"...

Had a few fun Rounds last night, worked only with the Medic and Support class. Was bummed that the Battlepack unlocks did not load straight away and I ended up selling a weapon that the game said was already in my inventory but when I checked it wasn't WTF? So I was told I unlocked the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) which I have always loved for it's high damage potential in these sorts of games even though it should have a slow rate of fire and high recoil...went to load it up with my support guy and not there...then I unlock it at the end of the night again and the game says I already own it...sell it for some war bonds...then go check and nothing! but I do ave the Lawrence of Arabia SMLE but never saw that in the unlock screen?

Anyway fun rounds with Southside (yes I drove a Tank Asshole!) RC, GetGot, Lore, and South's Nephew Mady. Certainly looking forward to a few more MP's joining and really getting the party started.

Thanks! Quick question.....would it not be better if the words "Team MP" was added to the emblem or is that not possible? Was just thinking it could act as "advertising" for this site when other players see the emblem after I ran over them with my horse. Grrowl should be careful though as it might be bad advertising when he uses grenades.

True. Not to worry, looks good as is and it's applied on my soldier, only problem is I'm yet to play the game! Tried to squeeze in 20 minutes before work this morning but the game decided to throw me in single player stories so did not manage to get a chance in multiplayer.

I managed to get some good game time in last night. I was in operations with some friends, seriously kicking butt...and shortly before the match ended I lost connection to the EA servers and my network blocked me from party chat. Before that though I managed to get some great kills in the bomber, including some great runs against the airship.

Man, played half a round of Operations and I might never play any other mode ever again. Was killing it on medic class, but had to bail before the last half. Think I might have messed up the hellfighter goodies, tho. Got the codes, and put the darn thing in the download queue on the app, but later I couldn't find it on the ps4. Any ideas? Did I blow it by using the app?

Here I am again to release my frustrations. Finally got some matches in last night and this morning but had a horrendous start to my BF1 career. My ass was getting pounded from all over the map by snipers. This is how I spent my most of time:

http://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14691225_10154846134122150_3064556539405582996_o.j pg

The beta map is probably my most hated map so far, multiple snipers camping roof top, ledges, anywhere really where they can throw a tent and camp fire down.

Then....to rub salt in the wounds I rain down mortar fire on player's heads and get no kills, just hit markers but hey, one shot from the sniper and I'm floored again.


http://youtu.be/_cdjjaBHrAs

For anyone that have not played this map yet, this spot here is a sniper hot spot, they love it:

http://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14711547_10154846133337150_8423369165457606249_o.j pg

I had one decent match where I managed to make 2nd place only when I piloted the zeppelin, now that thing is devastating if you don't take it down quickly.

http://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14711669_10154846135397150_6216675690372502192_o.j pg

Nearly every match I join we lose, a piss poor 14% win rate. Got fed up with the snipers and decided to join domination which we lost all 3 games that I played. Rant over.....going to sulk, regroup and jump back in later.

Played through the tank campaign on hard today. Damn is that good. Saw RC complaining about the stealth bits, but I really dug that part. The final tank battle where you had to defend against the waves was hard as shit on hard. Finally was able to clear it with some nice long-range shooting over the wall on the left side of the map. If you can disable the first tank all the others slow up to get around the wreckage and you can get a lot more shots off without taking any damage.

I think the game is gorgeous and plays really good.

Gonna jump into the multiplayer tonight after some family VR time. (Finally got my daughters to play video games!!)

Friday night was a little cut short because of the outage, but still managed to grab a few rounds with Southtown, Joe and Remec (with Mady, Snarkcus and other friends of MP). It was fun but I got shot up a lot by some one-shot 'how the hell did they get me' kills.

Saturday I managed to get on mic with DC, GRRowl, Heads, Tasty, Southtown, Spike, Joe, RC, Beeano, Helmet, Sensei, and friends. All in one party at times, split across several squads.
It was an absolute blast, stand out moments were sweeping through the war torn streets as a unit. Taking objectives and generally cleaning house. Other times it was just plain mayhem with orders being given then retracted as things turned nasty when the big guns came bearing down on us. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
I'm still mentally scared from seeing Southtowns wrinkled nutsack bobbing up and down on my face in an act that seemed a bit too well rehearsed for my liking! Lol.
I didn't think it could get that cold in the desert to make them look that small... ;)

Can't wait for more of those shenanigans.

Indeedy old chap, we had a right hoot last night, hear hear!

Such a great game, getting by so far with only a few hiccups. Think I had one freeze and two restarts yesterday, and was able to get back in pretty quick. After that massive hacker attack, that's not bad.

So awesome to be on with so many great MPs, thanks to all for the games! Got some nice video, too :)

Most memorable moments - definately fighting through the streets as a team, unstoppable at times, orders and banter and lols flying. Had a few good round on medic, but have to say I miss some of my sights and scopes from BF4. Iron sights takes some getting used to. Oh, and horses are still cool. If I'm on one that is, if the enemy is on one, not so much.

Good to be an MP. Tally ho, Bettys at Butter!

Got plenty of time in over the weekend (played from 10pm Friday night until almost 5am Saturday morning). I unlocked the Fire Barrage Bomber and I'm in love with this plane. I was playing the first operations map and started off in the bomber. I did not die once and racked up a lot of multi kills from dropping those fire bombs. I think I prefer operations over all the other game modes.

After logging 13hrs of war, I've come to a few conclusions:
1: I find BF1 to be more user friendly than BF4
2: EA/Dice should have official servers where scouts are immediately killed as soon as they spawn. If a player continues to choose the scout class and wreak havoc on my life, they are officially banned for no less than 6 months [emoji51]
3: playing with MPs over randoms drastically increases your chance of survival and victory.
4: Southtown enjoys clubbing fellow MPs over the head; I've been put into the MP concussion protocol.
5: Unwritten rule: Joe will not accept failure and actually plays with a strategy. Veering from his strategy will result in severe reprimands. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]
6: Stains has the ability to rank in the top 10 post round with 1 kill and 10 deaths
7: Spike appears to have nerves of steel and a calmness that is quite surprising during the chaos.

Nice tool to flush out scouts if you can get close enough is the mortar. Although you won't get a kill with one hit I find it quite amusing the way they scatter which opens up the gap for you to move in and mow them down. BUT, I am convinced scouts will complain about the mortar and it will be nerved which it should not. I can understand if it was an one hit kill (cough cough scouts!) but it's not, depending on HP you need 2 to 3 rounds before getting the kill.

Well, I can definately vouch for both Jonnys MP status and his MP qualities! Thanks for some great games with you and Mofo today (tonight on your end, of course) We played well together, and by that I mean that I survived a lot longer with you in front of me than I do alone. What can I say, I'm easy to please ;) Memorable moments was watching that blimp go up in flames and crash into the ground in a beautiful mountain scenery from northern Italy, I believe. I also believe my italian medic alter ego would have let out a "mamma mia!" around the time I figured out that the burning balloon in the sky was going down, and that probably the best place to be when that happened was anywhere but where I was currently standing - and if Elton John had seen me, he'd probably be singing "don't let the sun go down on him" - cos that's pretty much what it felt like. Survived though, after a sprint that'd make Usain Bolt look like a ninja turtle(turtle cos it's slow, ninja cos - well, he's Usain Bolt) A bit smokey and with an eyebrow missing, I am ready to do this again the earliest opportunity. Will try to supply video coverage of said close-to-fiery-death experience when I get the chance.

Well - in my defense I am old as dirt and can't remember where I left my hemorrhoid cream let alone all the MP's that are on my friends list!!! Worst thing was he was in the party chat - doh!!!


Plus, he was laying on top of a hill when I spawned on him so I thought he was a camping sniper. Turns out he had the tank killer kit and was waiting for a tank whore to come by and blow up, so he's all right in my book!

Much fun, that was my first party since I resurfaced. I agree that C on that map, and G on Sinai Desert are maybe not even worth the effort? It's not as exciting but wondering if anyone agrees, getting the majority number of points and then defending them until the lead is too great for other team to recover? I was on today with randoms - which went about as well as you'd expect - and 'squads' would run from A->B->C->D->E->D->C->B->A, meanwhile the other team would hold 3-4 at a time and dominate overall. Probably be less action so may be too boring. Am i even making sense?

It's a lonely round on Sinai, defending G base, that's for sure. And you don't rack up much score. But keeping one or two people there to hold it seems to be a smart move. If this was BF4, I'd stick a spawn gadget there, and return when an enemy wanders out there.

Tactics start with sticking together as a squad, maybe even two squads if we're enough players on - that would really make a dent.

We usually have enough for 2 squads problem is it switches you every game

You mean servers? Coz if you start a party, then you're in a squad together in the game. When one from the party starts a game, you are asked to join, and if you accept you end up in the same squad, I believe. If you join after they started playing, then you might have to look for them to join their squad.

Useful tip for those who haven't figured it out yet: if your squad is locked, only friends can join. Which means, when you start a squad for MPs to join, then leave it locked as your friends will still be able to join, and you won't have to deal with randoms filling up your squad while you wait.

From what I believe the most reliable way to form squads is to start a PS party as GRRowl mentions above. Not only does this mean you are always able to communicate if the game kicks anyone, but it seems to help matchmaking.
It also helps if the party leader has an updated friends list as it can cause potential embarrassment if a new [MP] is kicked because they are not known to some (I'm looking at you Spike :spit:).
*Admittedly this is easier said then done as very few FNGs add up all [MP]s from the list.

The party leader then chooses whatever mode everyone wants to play and goes into the game.
Once in they select a squad and set it to private. Then the other party members should get an invite to the game (press x).
The game should put you into the squad and keep you there.
If there are too many members for a squad (5), then one person starts a new private squad and others filter in until balanced. The second squad leader may have to open/close squad privacy to suit.
Any more than eight and then you have to create another party chat and start the process as before, with people moving around to balance the squads.

If you are late to the party, as it stands a few things can go awry.
You have to join the squad through the backdoor (search friends/ find server number etc).
Then when you finally join (anything upto 10 mins) you sometimes can't join any squad for a match.
Then you may get bounced around the teams in subsequent matches.

Last time I played, these seemed to be the usual order of play. It may change or get patched out. Who knows.


Last but not least, if you are Squad Leader. Don't forget to give out those orders (spam R1 whilst looking at the top of the flag/ diamond letter). Or if like me, just mumble something like "Okay, lets try Echo, Egg, Edward, whatever the eff it is!!!)


See you in Squad MPeeps.

Had some good matches last night with tastyfish, helmethead, grrowl, spike, graybeard, headswilsned, and the major. First time on rush, glad I got invited to that because I probably wouldn't have on my own. highlight for me though was helmet and I guarding the battlements of fao fortress defending e&f, when I saw two guys who I guess were aggravated with us blasting them rushing the stairs, so I waited at the ladder. Sure enough, first guys comes climbing up and gets shovel-to-the-face.. I was cracking up at that, when his buddy continues up past the falling body and klang! Two home runs!

Good times last night with Beeano, Sheepdog, RC, Rem, JohnnyH, JohnnyBlaze, and I think that was the gang...except for BoBosda1...only was on our side once that I recall luckily I only encountered him once as well, resulting in trading kills.

Even if you don't have a mic or can't use it I would highly suggest getting into the party, it makes you aware of when there are available spots and where the other squads may be heading or issues they are dealing with. So don't think of it as taking away a spot from some with a mic just think of it as one way comms.

carry on.

Had some good rounds through out today. Even got a few rounds in with Scooby (sorry, no mic tonight).

Having a blast playing Rush again, even with mostly randoms. :eek (2):

One thing I'm not liking is the leveling. I prefer the way prior games handled it, showing how many points you need rather than in BF1 where they show approximately how much time it will take (yes I know you can see the points on the companion website, but it's stupid that you can't in game). Also not liking the Medal Tracking, just let me earn medals the old way.

DeadChaos
11-04-2016, 04:06 AM
Right, I'm here to have a moan again after my session last night. Take note of the awesome bullet sponges in BF1 or maybe my gun is shooting plastic pellets, either way, damn frustrating. Seems like I will have to go for 200 round magazines to finish someone off.


http://youtu.be/unWg-Lyq-n4

Played this map on Rush, got slaughtered. Can not get anywhere near the objective as snipers are spread right around the ridges. If you lucky enough to make it through the snipers on the other side of the ridge will just finish you off.

http://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14907117_10154887773577150_7361965781245271288_n.j pg?oh=de10f44f246973a12ad085dc6842eb88&oe=588BC142

I had to start spawning at the base as everytime I spawn on my squad it's on the damn ledges and you can not just jump off, no no, you have to run all the way around and down the ridge!! Two medics in my squad, I was not revived ONCE by them or anyone else during the entire match as they are too busy keeping the ridges warm miles away.

http://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14925573_10154887772007150_67061312614091940_n.jpg ?oh=54a12702af077ce484bc78baf10c582a&oe=58D03571

Then there is the issue of spawning on your squad who is not under fire yet you spawn smack bang in front of a tank, killed instantly again.

I feel the urge to throw my controller across the room as this game is slowly frustrating me more and more....have much more enjoyable time on BF4. I will see how it goes a week or so after the COD launch otherwise this game is going on shelf until a decent patch is released to make this more enjoyable.

Sorry you are having so many problems - do you get on with any other MPs at all?

I used to find the Lewis was useless for taking people down, but recently it seems to be improving for me - dunno why.

GRRowl74
11-04-2016, 06:52 AM
Me I can't kill shit with that gun, even if I am getting hit markers. Haven't checked the specs but the damage on that thing must be hilarious. Funny thing is I seem to get killed by support players all the time, so it's probably me - again.

Snipers are a pain, and hoards of snipers on the desert maps in particular can really mess up the game. Still, if I play to stay alive rather than go for kills or captures like a headshot is no more than a passing headache, I find I can stay alive for quite some time. Of course, maps with mostly open spaces, like Sinai - is no place for a lonely soldier running across the dunes. Either there's a sandstorm and you run straight into an enemy tank, or your friendly neighbourhood sniper will pick you off on a clear day.

Luckily there are other maps.

Mostly play with MP's on weekends. During the week I literally have 40 minutes or so to squeeze in two quick matches. I've tried to jump in on MP's but find I'm constantly sitting in a que and if I eventually get in the match it ends in 1 minute, then stuck on the long loading screens again. I must just stick to less time consuming games during the week (Rocket League/Diablo 3 is perfect for in and out matches) and play BF1 over the weekend...don't know yet....will see how it goes. Maybe I'll just pour 4 beers down my throat before playing BF1, might make the pain less when the sniper bullet tears through my body :wink:

11-04-2016, 08:40 AM
I agree that it can induce fits of controller throwing.
Even with squads of MPs all sitting top of the table it still throws up a win/loss ratio of about 1 in 4 games which is infuriating.
I tend to ease the pain with 'big boys sniping' which means jumping in a dirty great metal box and picking off unsuspecting suckers across the map.

But as infuriating as the game is, it is still my go to title at the moment.

I admit that it must be my fault for running mindlessly in front of your loaded barrel, as it sure as hell can't be a result of your aiming!!!

It was a great night, although let down by the truly terrible matchmaking/ squad joining capabilities of the game.
There were MPs all over the place. Split across squads on one side, on random squads on the other side. It was carnage.
Also a shame that the chat party cannot hold more than 8 people, maybe not a bad thing as I think Remec was in season last night :llama:

So many laugh out loud moments at the crazy man on man talk.

Thanks to Jssk, Grizzlie, Southtown (and his special 'friend' Mady), Tonka, Remec, Badger, Tracer, Johhnyh, hopkins and all the rest. There were so many all over the place it was hard to keep track.

Joe cracked me up on Fao Fort when I'd just capped G and started trundling up to D in my big old tank. As I neared, two enemy tanks crested a ridge into view. They must've taken some damage already as I quickly dispatched them nice and quickly.
Then I turned towards C to head down the hill when I heard Joe screaming at me "get that Tank you f***ing retard, it's right in front of you!!!". Laughing in dismay, I turned to see the tank below me and tried to aim whilst turning between two rocks.
I got the tank whilst Joe continued his pep talk at my inability to drive. Lol.
Three tanks in 30 seconds was pretty good for me, but not enough to impress Joe ;).

I did get a medal for 100 kills in the big tank though.

So much freakin fun the last couple of days running with an assortment of scoundrels - MP and friends of MP. This game is really fantastic and has renewed my love of Battlefield games.

Bonus is that the snipers seem to have calmed down a bit since COD came out - or maybe it's just my imagination. Anyone else notice that?

Also - thank god that Remec can't aim for shit with that Sentry gun. I was able to take him out in a one-on-one gunfight with my puny medic rifle. :ak::ak::ar15::ar15::ar15::clap2::clap2::clap2:

Have to say, it's great to be an MP on the battlefield these days. Practicly whenever I get the chance to log on, morning, day or night - there's somebody, usually more than one, to join. So much fun, win or lose - but when we're a full squad, or more than that, working towards the same goal - the MPs are certainly making a severe cut into the enemys tickets.

Thanks to all battlefield MPs I played with last night, I think there were seven-eight of us playing together at one point - great games and good company.

BF1 is a great game, but it's so fast, loud and chaotic at times, and it makes me miss the more quiet, sneaky, heart-thumping, nervewrecking madness that is R6 Siege. With Red Crow coming up, I hope to see some of you there as well.

I may be late on this info - was it already common knowledge that in addition to being able to select a type of tank, you can also select a variant:

FT-17
Class:Light Tank
Passengers:1 Tanker
Weapons:3 Variants – 37mm Short Main Cannon / 20mm Auto-Cannon / 8mm Machine Gun
Gadgets – Close Support:Canister Shell, Poison Gas, Deployable Medkit
Gadgets – Howitzer: Emergency Repair, Smokescreen
The lightest tank available in Battlefield 1 comes in three major variants — the Close Support Tank, the Flanker Tank, and the Howitzer Tank. The Close Support Tank can deploy medkits to on-foot soldiers, or spread poison gas. The Flanker is a fast version with a powerful auto-cannon, and the Howitzer comes with a powerful cannon, smokescreens, and auto-repair capabilities.

I love this little beast...

I use the flanker auto cannon and you can drop 3 anti tank mines as well, and it is capable of quick track repairs but takes longer to repair than the Howitzer.
The Howitzer is fun but not about to switch because I don't think there is enough splash damage.
The support is great for getting points from the ammo/med kit drops.

Finally decided to buy this game (PS4). Can someone fill me in on the current meta? Things like whether one class/build is overwhelmingly dominant, etc. Plus any general tips if you want.

Also, any recommended aim sensitivity or control configurations?

Great Scott! erm... Great, Scott!

It will be good to hook up with you on BF1; don't forget to add your self to the Active Players list.

In my experience, the medic is a pretty good class to start with; you get points for helping other people and can self heal. Also the weapon is quite good.

YMMV of course

DeadChaos

Scott: Medic is strong with laser accuracy guns. Assault is another strong class with SMG's, devastating shot guns, 2 gas grenades to spam, anti tank grenades and an AT rocket gun to destroy tanks which can also be used as a "sniper rifle" against infantry...and yes, you can have all that at once in your loadout. Support is ok but have weak guns, mortar is fun to play with and of course you have ammo crates and a repair tool. Scouts...well....pretty sure you will know all about scouts very soon. There are some other gadgets as well but above mentioned feel the strongest to me.

Tip: Don't waste your war bonds on unlocking all the guns/gadgets as you will run out of bonds fast. At class level 10 you unlock the beast weapon for that specific class.

spawn into tank...shoot anything that moves...cap some flags...repeat.

I enjoy the classes pretty equally but certainly feel that Medic is once again the best when considering the all round play, and assault is the best if you just want to blow shit up. Support is not too bad but yes the primary weapons aren't to great but you are more useful to the team with the ability to hand out rounds, and a bit of demolition goes with the kit in the form of limpet charges. these are basically timed C4 charges, put it on a tank or on a building, set back and wait for the BOOM!

DeadChaos
11-16-2016, 02:52 PM
I've also tried the HE mortar which is a decent against tanks but you have to be accurate with it and hope the tank does not move around to much.

And as Ullrsdog said, tank is the way to go. If you use it cleverly you can go the entire match destroying everything.

Then, when I re-spawn on E you are instantly killed again as up to 4 scouts are camping at the top by D all fighting over who can take your life first. So, 3 options left:
1. Calmly quit the match and turn console off.
2. Throw controller on the floor and then get told to stop playing if it makes you mad.
3. Sit at the spawn screen....go make coffee/tea and patiently wait/pray that a tank spawns for you.

I feel your pain. And would definitely opt for 3.

Only last night I was plagued by serial snipers.
On one match I ran a mile out of my way to try and flank the SOBs, when I got within stabbing distance someone else on my team sniped them...gutted.

I've been hovering right over #2 the last two days...snipers seem to have ratcheted up again, but EVERYthing seems to be going sour. My aim seems off, I spawn on squadmate and then get run over by a tank with him, my team (randoms not MPs) sit on one objective while the other 4 tick away, blah blah blah. I've asked the TV several times, 'are you f-ing kidding me??'. It never does answer, but I swear it's snickered.
In one moment of frustration I was actually calculating in my head if the cost of the controller was worth the satisfaction of bashing it on the ground. I guess that was just long enough to talk myself out of it. My new theory is it's after effects of the supermoon.

Rediculous Chaos. IMO they need to do something with the Scouts. It just seems there are too many one shot kills happening. To be one-shot killed while riding a horse is a whole other level. I think head shots should be instant death but they need to add more bullet drop and shrink the hit box for scouts.

You're right Ullrs, that download took forever last night so I did some more of the campaign. And I must say it is still a really enjoyable experience so far.
Nice story making with an attempt at giving the characters enough background to feel a little invested in their plight. The gameplay, although predictable in its layout is littered with breathtaking scenery, stunning graphics and powerful sounds/ score.

The Giants Shadow seemed a little predictable in style and orientation.
I was really pleased when I realised I was getting continually sniped from the highest wingtip of the blimp, it is my favourite part of the game being one-shot killed by people hiding in unreachable parts of the map. Just love it.
The capping of objectives just swayed from one home spawn to another as it is an easy map to outflank one another the whole game. With the usual shit fight for the middle ground.
Still all good fun, with no noticeable game changers from the update that I could tell of.

I never had the opportunity to watch that show, based on the time I was told it was on t.v. I would never have had the opportunity to watch what seemed like a great show!

Good time though as always!!!!

12-18-2016, 03:18 AM
Actually there's a story about that theme song. Some sort of copyright disagreement, made them have to change it. So when the show had a rerun some years back it was with a different theme song. Kind of ruined the whole memory lane moment.

Incidentally, I was too old to be watching that series when it first ran, so naturally I watched it anyway. Teenager series have some strange appeal. There's one in Norway now, "Skam"(shame), which has got the whole country hooked, including a few other countries too. They're supposed to make an American version of it too, which is rare for Norwegian productions.

Anyway, that's enough teen series trivia for one morning, I think ;)

Bourbon noooo you don't say!?! I only had a few no big deal, I have to say having a squad to run with for several rounds is always a good time. Last night was the exact opposite, I was lone wolfing and had to jump around from squad to squad to find a group that was Objective oriented. The last round was on Sinai Desert and I only could find the sniper squad to hang out with. The best part was spawning in on the ridge top sniper and stealing all his kills...here's some flares buddy, stay safe I'll need a spawn point in a bit!

Thursday night I was way too hammered to shoot after the Christmas drinks, but had fun trying.
Thanks again guys. Good times.

Happy holidays to you guys and see you on the other side for some 'Christmas Noob' hunting.

Thanks a lot for the session yesterday I had a lot fun specially the moment when we attacked the hill with the whole squad :) for the first time playing BF I had the feeling that there is sony tactic behind. Cheers and happy holidays! P.S I have to buy a new headset as the current one isn't working so I was not able to communicate. However my spoken english isn't very good but I will try :)

It was great to team up with you Silesia and your broken English would put most of us to shame - I know roughly ZERO Polish!

Got some games in with SilesiaPL and although I'm not a big team death match fan it was very enjoyable especially since I had my own personal medic, thanks SilesiaPL!

Had some great battles over the last couple of nights.
Thanks to Ullrsdog, Deadchaos, RC, Beeano, Badger, Remec, Tonka, Old Gregg, and more.
Saved some pretty funny moments that might one day surface online.
Feeling the burn today after going to bed at some insane hour last night.

Are you sure that was me? I think my account got hacked by a crazy person...

Had some good games just now with Stains, RC, Sensei and DeadChaos. Sorry I bailed, but I thought I had been summoned by the missus... turns out it my oldest wanted to play Overwatch, so he slightly embellished the truth.

Thanks to everyone I played with this weekend. Sadly I missed the Friday Night party with the 'cross-the-ponders' as it was too late for me.

I've officially given up going for medals in this game.
This weeks challenge 'Order of Augustus' looked like a sinch on paper.
-Disable 3 tracks. Tick.
-Get 25 kills using a tank. Tick. I'm a tank whore, it's what I do.
-Get 10 passenger assists. Tick.

So then I jump on Friday with 2 days remaining on the challenge.
Played most of Friday night, a few hours Saturday and then a few more Sunday.

All I had to get was...

-get 10 kills in 1 round in a tank.
-get 5 kills in 1 life in a tank.

...tough, but not impossible. Or so I thought.

Because the stupid game didn't give me one damn tank all weekend.
Not so easy getting a tank medal when the game won't give you a tank.

Sod that for a game of soldiers, never going for a medal again.

Ha, I had a slightly different experience with medals this weekend.
I was going for the Revolver medal so have been playing a lot of Hardcore (the only way I can make enough kills).
I was on a 3 hour countdown to get 5 kills in one life with the revolver, plus had one hour last night before Sherlock started where I was permitted to play.
Hardcore Domination... 4 kills, die; 4 kills, die; rinse and repeat until 5 minutes before the missus calls me down I manage to get 5 kills!!!!
:cheer2:

I'll be sporting my new medal shortly :biggrin:

Not a fan of this medal system, I'd rather go collect trophies in other games then waste time with these medals. Think I only ever got the support medal.

I agree...I think this was the worst change they could make to the previous system. Pick a medal, progress they way we tell you to...I mean the old system rewarded you for playing the specific class, if you like support throw ammo down and go bi-pod pro and suppress a lane, BAM here is a resupply medal and a suppression medal. Same for every class, you want a medic medal go hand out band-aids or revives and you'll get it. I think the new system pigeon holes you to doing one thing until it's done then moving to the next task, instead of playing to the overall strengths of the class...long story short I think the new medal system is garbage.

Had another hilarious night with the 'Unusual Suspects' last night/ this morning.
Was it worth the roasting I got this morning for waking the house in the early hours? Well, only time and the divorce settlement will tell ;)

Shame I had to keep quiet for the majority, I could tell Southtown wanted to hear my dulcet tones whilst looking at 'studmuffins.com'. Lol. Just kidding, hope the PS Pro worked well when it all finally downloaded.
Thanks again for setting up the game night.
Good to hear Micovski, Remec, Spike, Beeano, Badger and AngryBeaver. And good games thank you all.

Good times, thanks so much.

Got some games in with Heads, my personal medic. Cheers for the revives! Killed the enemies in the last match, had all the flags at one point.

Ha ha - yep, that was one of my best moments last night too!

As my innards were evacuating through my mouth, I did wonder if it was uDog.


Shame you missed my earlier performances Southy; I think Grrowl might have caught some - I was going for the melee medal so was playing Fog Of War (Hard Core Team Deathmatch). Whoa - it was almost like playing MW2 again, with me running around shouting "Commanddooooooo"

I rage quit for the second night in a row last night which made me want to make a list of everything I hate about this game. These are also topics that I would like to discuss with the developers at Dice if I ever get my sit down.

Gas. Who the fuck thought it was a good idea to give 2 grenades and have the gas supress friendlies.
Commando lunge Bayonet Charges. You're practically bullet proof while charging. Don't they know what Commando did to MW2? At least give us the pro version with no fall damage. I love how I can fall 10 ft on some maps and be fine then fall 2 ft on others and die
Spawning in an open field surrounded by cunt snipers on a hill.
Under powered medic guns that can't compete with automatic weapons in the Assault and Support Class.
AUTOBALANCING pretty much ruins the game. And makes it hard as fuck to play with your friends. If you are in a party over 5 people then it shouldn't split up the 2 squads. Assholes.
I hate how I can bound over 6-8 ft walls, but can't jump over a 2 ft wooden fence.
I hate the bombers and who thought it was a good idea to give the attack planes those bombs that kills everyone.
I hate that 90% of the flags are in wide open spaces. Makes it even easier for the bombers to kill.
The Train, Dreadnaught and Airship are unnecessary. Don't the cunts at dice remember how everyone hated the AC130.
Grenade Spam. It has been a problem in every BF game and even in Star Wars Battlefront. Doesn't Dice remember how the had to nerf grenades in BF4? If you run support you have a constant supply of grenades because the replenish so quickly. Fucking assholes.
Are they every going to fix the revive glitch where you can't use your gun?
Can they make the menus less lagging. How many of you have redeployed by accident trying to get into the squad menu.
Can they take away that fucking pop up that asks you if you want to join the game of someone in your party? Who thought that was a good idea?
Having to go prone to shoot the rocket gun also sucks. Especially because of the fucking bitch snipers. It makes it so hard to shoot at tanks.

I still believe that Dice is incapable of developing a good game. I will say BF1 is 100 times better at launch then BF3 or 4, but these issues should have been avoided.

My other problem with this game is I believe that there are a lot of ex-COD players coming over to BF because IW sucks. I seriously believe that is why it seems like there are less people playing the objectives and sitting on the edge of the map and either sniping or using some other douch bag mother fucking tactic (ie Artillery Truck on the edge of the map). How many games have we've played with a full squad of MP's and friend where we're the only ones capping flags. I can't even tell you how many time we've has 500 ticket losses while our squad is at the top of the leader board on both sides.

Ok. I feel better now.See you on the Battlefield tonight.

Nice venting of the spleen there Sir. I think you pretty much covered all the bases.
