    Seems like they completely gave up on destruction. The storm didn't look like fun game play. "Welcome to BF! Enjoy being sucked in to a storm for the next 3 minutes instead of killing things and achieving objectives!"

    On the plus side that UI seemed nice. The gun play seemed solid. Glad they are going future so they can do cool vehicles and guns without the fan boys going "[insert gun here] has the wrong attachment/rof/damage etc."

Some of the rush maps were very hard to attack/defend (looking at you, Valparaiso and Isla Inocentes). To be fair, though, maps like Atacama Desert, Arica Harbor, Panama Canal, and Laguna Presa were fun. But once you start destroying buildings, fences, and vegetation, things became less fun.
    BC2 was neat because it blended the fun parts of both the BF series and CoD series. Good gunplay, movement, squad roles, decently balanced vehicles on the whole, lots of reward for 'high skill' play.

    The only real problem was the stupid high tick servers where over time everything would just be flattened. But the game was clearly never really designed with 300 tick rush games in mind.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Aye fuck the storms off.

    Decent infantry maps + Planetside influenced system of sidegrade based progression without microtransactions and this will fly tho.

    High chance of it being all form and no function.

    So after banning knife/pistol servers in BF2, it's now a feature in 2042...

    This is actually pretty damn cool. Can imagine things like a Juggernaut Rush mode, where attackers have 1 guy with 1000% health and can't be headshotted vs 20 standard players defending.
    Or scenarios where one team's vehicles are only WW2 aircraft while the other team has only ground vehicles (kinda like Sharqi Peninsula in BF2).
    Or a combination of Tank Supremacy and Air Supremacy where one side gets aerial vehicles only (random vehicle type and spawn location) and 50 tickets, while the other team gets ground vehicles only (random vehicle type and spawn location) and 200 tickets. No radar, no spotting, no exiting vehicles, but you can switch positions in a vehicle.

    Honestly this looks like the most refreshing idea in a AAA shooter in years. Good on them.

    It will be interesting to see how the community adapts to 'infinite possible rules combinations' matches and what modes predominate.

    ok so while i quite like being able to change attachments in round... on balance i'm not sure i like it? takes a few seconds to go from an AR set for long range (while you make your way somewhere) to an AR that's great for CQB... almost means you don't have to think about how you approach things quite so much

    another night of otherwise much fun though!

    Not a fan of classes being remove and replaced with "specialists" that can do it all. Not everyone should be able to use a rocket launcher and a sniper rifle.

    I am not sold on the refitting gun modules at will. It's nice when you go from a close to a long range part of the map and vice versa, but I miss that the loadout you went in with mattered.

    From what I've heard it's actually pretty shit for multiple basic gameplay reasons.

    When it's actually released we'll have a better idea of how specifically shit it is

    Tbh after playing Tarkov seeing Battlefield is just hilarious. Movement, gunplay, it's like playing with toy guns. I mean I get the appeal, I personally wouldn't play it, but for wanting to recreate war stuff it's just... lol.


    Maybe I have rose-tinted glasses but I remember Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 as much better than this thing when concerned with movement, shooting, maps, etc.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    If you wanted MilSim/realistic guns, you never played BF but Operation Flashpoint, Arma, now Tarkov as well. BF was always arcade.

    I played BF3 and BF4 and I felt it was pretty good at the time. I'll fire them up again to check if they feel shitty or not, but imo 2042's gameplay is way too arcade-ish.

    As I said, I may be remembering BF3/4 through a very nice rose colour, so...


    Tarkov kind of ruined other military shooters for me in terms of gunplay, it's just so good.


    (I did play Operation Flashpoint back in the day, good memories from that game. Never got into ARMA tho).

    Those are not rose-tinted glasses on your nose, that's a theater grade lights with rose filter you have in your mind.

    Battlefield was always arcadey.

    The movement from the 2042 beta looks more like Tribes than any previous BF game though.
