CoDww2

CoD:WWII PC beta was this weekend on Steam. I was excited for this beta because of the lack of FPS options out there and this was an opportunity for me to look at how CoD has evolved over the years since the last one I played, which was Modern Warfare 2. Yeah, it’s been a long time and though I liked MW2 OK enough, it didn’t keep my interests. The entire iw.NET thing was a disaster on PC with the constant disconnects, freezes, and lag issues brought on by peer-to-peer hosting.

So the beta for Battlefield Hardline has come and gone. A number of days to try out a couple game modes, maps, and see some of the Hardline universe. Many posts and Youtube videos have come and gone all explaining the ins and outs of the beta and the game itself. I suppose it is time for me to post up my thoughts on the beta as well, so here we go.

Many of you already know that the first week of Battlefield 4 has been rough. There has been a lot of different issues from lagging to client crashes. BF4 has been released for 1 week and 1 day as of this writing, November 6th, 2013.

Most of the issues have been:

  • Server crashes
  • Client crashes
  • Rubber banding
  • Net-Code/Lag issues
  • Loss of unlocked items

As you can see, it is a number of problems and these are not all the little bugs, just the main ones that seem to be affecting everyone. There are also little bugs throughout the game. One bug I think is really strange is that a silenced QBU-88 will, in fact, disable all audio for everyone in a server. The only fix at this time is to exit and re-enter that server. That is a pretty big bug for sure and I have to say, one of the strangest.

First, let me say that I do not mind a persons opinion on a game. It is their opinion and most the time it doesn’t really matter, much like my own 😀 . For those that know me on forums or in-game know that I don’t really care if someone has a different opinion from me. What does get me though is when people try to state their opinion as a fact and/or state something with nothing to back it up with.

What is a Battlefield 2.5er? – This is a person who loved the Battlefield 2 game, or in most cases only played BF2, and after that only wanted every Battlefield game after that to be Battlefield 2.5. These people usually did not like 2142 and hated and despised the Bad Company Series and Battlefield 3. The reasoning they give for hating those games is because “they are not truly Battlefield”. Features are gone that were in BF2, such as VoIP, squad numbers, commander, smaller maps, different weapon customizations, etc… They are fanatical that Battlefield 2 was the best game in the entire series and any deviation from that is not Battlefield.

So for those that do not know, the Battlefield 4 Beta has started for those that have the early three day access. Full access for everyone else starts Saturday. Having purchased Premium for Battlefield 3, that allowed yours truly to play the PC beta during this early period.

So yesterday I was able to play for two hours on the beta and decided, like many thousands of others, to post my take on the game. So you may be thinking to yourself; “If thousands are posting their take on this, what is so special about your take, Cptain?” Well, in truth, perhaps nothing! I do like to think though that my years of Battlefield playing and beta testing will give me a bit of a more truthful look at the game. I am able to separate my feelings about a topic and come to decisions outside the fact of “what a battlefield game should be”. I also understand that this is a beta and even though changes before release are slim, they can still happen. I also understand that even though the Alpha footage was impressive, that it was all in a controlled environment and that games do not normally look like that once released. (more…)
