I thought to myself, if its just me playing on my own, can I have fun with it ?
The answer is yes as I find the switch to WW1 content quite intriguing.
So, I've gone and pre-ordered the game on PC !

I hope for a decent talking teamplay game like the good old 2142 days but don't expect that, so I am not buying the game for that reason.

If a few of you get the game we can squad up.
Also there will be a few days of open beta, so we can play then too.

I'm definitely buying, I just hope it isn't wasted money for me as were ARMA II, ARMA III, and Operation Flashpoint etc. I didn't particularly like BC2 or BF3, but I still played them enough to justify the cost....

Some gamepay from yesterday ...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLzXm6rEBTg

My first impression wasn't so good (lots of run&gun gameplay - limited teamwork - no prone?). Then I realized that those people just can't play the game properly. :p
The weather changes are awesome, lots of destruction and dynamic gameplay, and a good good class system. I like especially the addition of pilots and tank officers as specialiced classes.
If there is ingame VoiP and some commanding options for decent squadleading, this game could really shine.
And there is going prone by the way - so people could actually take cover, in case you wonder.

lobodelrio
13.06.2016, 09:36
Same here, looks promising enough to try it out for sure! Would love it if we can set up a more or less regular training / friendly match with maybe 2-3 squads. As we all dont have the time fixed squads wont work, but still Id appreciate a touch competitive feeling among the fun rounds with more than three S7s that happen more or less on random occasion :)

lobodelrio
13.06.2016, 15:24
Its strange but Im not sure if deep down if we would not be betrayed by publishers on a regular basis I wonder if we would anticipate a big launch as nervous and anxious as we do now. You never know, this time it could be it... (not). Still, grant it to Dice BF4 is very playable nowadays, so maybe after Hardline and Battlefront now its time for a winner again? If not right away, maybe after two years of patching?

Medic
13.06.2016, 16:02
Maybe they will make a 2142 sequal that has again moving titans, but this time they will also drop down.

Love how they always reinvent the wheel and make it sound as something brand new like voip.:D

Makes me wonder if we will ever see the commander back on the field with destuctable assets.
And don't forget SL spawn only on flags. So you realy have to keep an eye on them and call out the enemy SL.

Medic
13.06.2016, 16:05
But for now very dissapointing. Looks like that free battlefield game we had a few years back. A real step backwards to BF4 regarding the buildings and size from what i can see, but have to play it to make a real judgement.

Stil holding back for a proper beta.

LevelCap's overview:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYmQE-trVJg

No further info on squad size sadly. I'm also a bit on the fence about the new vehicle repair system. Seems way better than auto repair for sure, but in the same time it takes away from the teamplay aspect. Good if you just want to play alone casually of course. Stil I like the fact that you can't repair while engaging.

I like the idea that every weapon has it's niche, but I feel it is somewhat harsh if the weapons are really unusable on other than optimal situtations Pros and cons. The severity is hard to really judge by from LevelCap's video though.

The melee system also pretty poor at the moment. Not surprised really.

Shame that it is so hard to get any feel of the squad play mechanics thus far.

Exploding_Silver
14.06.2016, 20:45

Ark
16.06.2016, 17:19
Some more info bits:

- no commander
- 5 man squads
- instant revives (Medic train is back ...)
- autorepair only in vehicles above 50%
- french fraction will be the first Premium DLC

Most of this comes from gameplay analysis and interviews - so take it with caution. Most of the stuff seems not to be finalized yet.

Something I wondered, while watching the gameplay videos: Conquest mode seems not to be ticket based anymore. If you only progress by capturing flags (similar to Carrier Assault in BF4), random players may increase their focus on the objectives, but doesn't it make the medic class kinda obsolete?
... Lets see.

l3illY
16.06.2016, 18:06
Levelcaps' raw footage has been the most informative for me. I am excited for new BF although, I'm disappointed to see that "twitchy'" movement mechanics are coming back. Constantly bobbing and weaving is cheesey and unrealistic. Although I enjoy JackFrag and Levelcaps' videos, all of the Squad Up guys play like this...constantly moving to avoid fire like virtual crackheads. No bueno.

However, the game looks like it still has a lot to improve, but I guess only time will show. Best Im hoping for is a BF4 lookalike with a few changed settings / weapons... worst - I dont really wanna consider that

Ark
03.07.2016, 12:02
I allready raised my concerns about the conquest mode not being ticket based anymore, since it favours a very aggressive playstyle and doesn't rely for victory on medics. If in addition the respawn delay is extremely short, there is actually no reason to pick medic class. Best squadlayout is propaply all Assault. (Plus one Support - maybe - or just kill yourself to get more ammo. Doesn't make a difference anyway.)
Making the tanks more lonewolf friendly doesn't encourage teamwork either. And if Levelcaps impressions are true, I wonder how an enemy team could possibly stop a S7 tank crew - it's allready hard in BF4, but with less Anti-Tank weaponry and easy self-repairs ... If you roll in a convoy you are propably unstoppable right now.

Lets hope they change some of the stuff or include a "classic" mode of some sort to mitigate it.
I am curious for the Beta anyway.

Medic
03.07.2016, 12:42
Always was a big fan of the hold most flags for bleed and ticket loss by death. That way you always could counter a loss 1 way or the other. This only seems to focus on the most flags and less on your death.

l3illY
03.07.2016, 18:44
I posted that video just so those that didn't get an invite can see some more current footage. As for peoples' opinions of the current state of the game- don't put a lot of weight into any of it. When the Closed Alpha closes, I'll chime in with my thoughts.

None taken, Billy. All good.
And you are right of course, people should and will make up their own mind.
I like a lot of what I've seen so far ... some stuff not so much. But that was true for BF4 as well and I enjoyed that title for 1500 hours after all.
If I raise concerns about stuff, it's just because I want to have a good game.
Anyway, some privat footage made me way more confident, that this will work as a good teamplay title. If there is Squad-VoiP, I am a happy chipmunk. :)
I am looking forward to the Beta.

07.07.2016, 12:50
The NDA on the Closed Alpha has been lifted-
I've put circa 9 hours in so far, and have loved it. It looks beautiful, and the dynamic weather is a nice touch. One round could be blinding sun to the next round of sight hindering driving rain and fog. As far as the new score/point system, I'm not sure exactly how it works but I will say this- when I had squad working together (squad voip works beautifully and is again defaulted to left alt) and we were trying to keep half or more of the flags, we easily won the round. As I spammed many about last Sunday, I had a miserable 5 rounds in a row of losses, where people were camping 20 meters away from points, and not capping. Then I had a run of 5 rounds or so with a squad of 5 of us with l3illY as squad lead, sticking together and working like a well oiled machine, and a least for me, it was everything I enjoy about battlefield. The nonsense about armor being overpowered is ridiculous, I have played mostly medic, and the rank up system is quick, so I was quickly able to equip anti tank grenades for instance. The bolting animation for the small arms is beautiful, I'm guessing they borrowed a lot from Red Orchestra in that regard. The complaints about quick spawn times and a short revive timer are also nonsense, both were a non issue. I did plenty of revive spamming with the medic defib (needle) etc.

Another plus is that it seemed to run well on my older AMD 8350 Vishera system-
8350 Vishera @ stock
16 Gb of Mushkin Redline DDR3 1866
256 GB Corsair Netron SSD
NVidia GTX 970

I would have bought even if I was on the fence similar to BC2, and BF3, but I'm a definite buy at this point. Two thumbs up from l3illY : D

That was a quick 6:50 am rambling on the clock from work....

Yes, it's confirmed. Medic showed me some privat videos and everything for proper squadplay is there.
We even got slight improvements like a compass. I am reliefed and happy. ;)
I will nevertheless wait for the beta before preordering - just to check, if it's running properly on my rig.

And thanks for the feedback, Billy. Great report. :icon_up:

for teamwork does BF1 voip make more of a difference compared to BF4 ?

is the revive mechanic compared to respawn time, make revived worth it ? or do people just respawn as standard ?

Medic
07.07.2016, 22:24
VoIP is the same, but it does seem clearer.

You can press the fast deploy, but it shouldn't get you back faster in the game. It's just something so you don't have to wait till spawn in kill screen.
There is also a button now that should call out for medic like in BF2/2142 days. You also get to see which medics are around and how far away they are.

whats the general time to respawn to time for the average revive, ie is the medic revive really "meaningful" to a squads performance ?
Also., imagine classic mode, would the average time to find and revive a downed squadleader be less than the respawn time ?

Medic
07.07.2016, 23:16
I believe revive time is about the same as in BF4. You have enough time to revive, but they musn't press the fast deploy.

For me that is a game breaker. If you are dead and can't be revived, then sure it is nice to go back to the deploy screen. But if you are revivable, then you shouldn't get that option.

But to give you an example of how the fast deploy works (at least i believe):

If you get a normal revive time of maybe ten seconds, then the fast deploy may get you back to deploy screen in 5. But you can't respawn till the full ten seconds are over. It jus gives you more time to sort out kit and find a spot to deploy.

Will try and get a vid of this sometime soon.

Exploding_Silver
07.07.2016, 23:19

l3illY

I haven't yet figured out the fast deploy myself. When I watched some of the first alpha event videos, I imagined that the fly-out to the map sequence after each death would quickly get annoying. At least as far as I was concerned- it was quite annoying, and caused some small vertigo effects upon me. The smart ass solution to the above though- don't die ; D

Exploding_Silver
07.07.2016, 23:29
medic, how did it play on your system ?
did it play on high settings ? at what FPS ? any noticeable FPS drops with a lot of action on screen at once ?
I seem to remember a few years back we had very similar systems (unless you have upgraded since then)

After watching those videos have to say Im quite excited. Everything seems to work and really like the old guns and the atmosphere.
Only thing I dont so far is the self repairing the tank. Is there a way to repair it like before with a wrench or is it just the self repair?

l3illY
08.07.2016, 12:23
The tank becomes immobile when self-repairing, and as of now, it's not particularly quick, so it may be a better fit than people spamming the former magic torch. As far as the medic revive timer and such, after playing it again last night, it's definitely shorter than in the past/more of a challenge, which I quite like. When enough people whine about it though, they'll probably nerf it back into a state of almighty/unkillable everlasting spam squads ; D

You can repair a vehicle from outside if you spawned a vehicle as driver.
When you auto repair, it will stop if you get hit. So no endless repairing when under fire.

Revive time felt good for me.

You can see in some videos that when you press fast reploy, the bar stil fills up before you can redeploy.

Another thing I haven't yet mentioned-

The handguns in BF1, at least in their current state are quite good.

This has been important for me as I've played primarily medic, which has (in the alpha) fairly weak semi auto, and full auto rifles with slow rates of fire. I very much appreciate this as opposed to BF4- getting the DEAgle ( I don't have it) involves accomplishing assignments, which I am not into.

A german gaming news outlet did some benchmarking (http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/battlefield-1/artikel/battlefield_1_closed_alpha,53468,3275657.html). It's in german, but the graphs are self-explantory.
The gist is, you need for FullHD ...

* 8 GB RAM
* and a Graphicscard with at least 2GB VRAM (270X or GTX950 will do plenty for medium)

>>> All in all very reasonable specs.
They used a pretty strong CPU, though.

What do you guys feel about kills not affecting the ticket count? Does it make players ignore revives? Do people play the objectives more? Started thinking after watching this:

Does the game turn too much into cap-the-back-flag-and-leave mentality?

I sure hope they bring back the old system, because it is indeed more a "hold the most flags" game. Reviving is a second nature for me, but the new people are more for rush and screw your squadmates.:)

I raised my concerns about this in another post allready and I agree with Medic and with LevelCap for different reasons. I actually like the more tactical way we or TG play the game, which LevelCap seems to find utterly boring. Defending a flag or holding certain positions is definitive of value - and to me personally also fun.
That said, from a purely strategical standpoint the medic class in BF1 is superfluos in conquest. Since it makes no difference, if you loose tickets. You could even make an argument for not needing anyone with support kit, since you just can kill yourself and respawn with full ammo. So maybe one sniper and the rest assault would be the most usefull squad layout - as long as you are willing to die and suicide, if needed.

And that's acutally my biggest concern: a valid tactic for example would be to play a sucide-defensive squad. You defend a point, then kill yourselfs and the whole squad respawns on the next flag contested. Why? Because it's much faster than running there. It's also an option to move around on bigger maps, if you got no transport available. "Guys as soon as we are clear - suicide! ... and respawn on A."

It's of course abusing the system. But it will happen. And I am fairly certain that medics get a rarity in conquest.
Also the new system encourages a heavyly aggressive run and gun playstyle. Since tickets lost are of no concern - just rushing to the next flag point without looking left and right might actually work well.

I personally hope they change it back till release. :icon_neutral:
And if not - there is allways rush mode, which I enjoyed quite a lot in BF4. :D

Am I willing to suicide in BF4 for the cost of dignity and a ticket: Hell yes. So let me consider if I would be willing to suicide in B1.... hmmm tough one lol. Good point Arque, there should be a 1 or 2 minute respawn block for suicides and that exploit would be done for

Good argument with the suicide Ark. I stole your example and posted it on r/battlefield_one. I could see it being hugely abused in competitive games.

I'm not clear about how the new system works (obviously kills don't matter anymore), but I'm curious about the specifics. Is it all about capping points, and/or holding points etc.? I didn't notice much of gameplay difference versus the old method in the Alpha. Although I did play 1942 (didn't love it), I have been playing BF heavily since the BF2 launch, and the mechanics of public play in the BF1 Alpha seemed the same as always:
Sometimes you spend hours waiting until the teamplay squad you've been looking for comes together. Once that happens, you stick together, revive, spam supplies, and cap and defend flags. I didn't notice much change in the Medic play regardless of the new system, and got a lot of the same "thanks man" kind of feedback per the usual after reviving.

I don't like the idea of the new change, but haven't noticed a legitimate difference in play so far. We'll see later on battling against teamplay squads and teams that actually have an idea as to wtf they're doing, and a strong desire to win the round...

Ark is right, the mathematical way to win means being on flags only, the ground between flags is irrelevant. The two effective strategy would be (1) spawn bomb on enemy flag to capture and (2) suicide teleport to contested flag

Not saying thats the way we play, just saying its how to win, according to the way they set up the dynamics. Levelcap did say they changed it to basically dumb down the "complex" conquest mode for new players !

They could implement an increasing timeout for each suicide. Maybe add 20 or 30 seconds to the respawn for each suicide done......so by the time you have done this a few times you may be looking at a 2 min wait to get back in the action.....

Another problem with this is that the points keep increasing even after round end like in one of my videos. The outcome can be 200-200, but one team got there first and it is hard to notice when a fight is going on.

I received a survey from EA today via email concerning the alpha. There were many questions in it, the good news ( I hope ) is that there were a couple questions specific to the above mentioned changes in Conquest. Hopefully they'll get the message, and revert to the classic style. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
