    Battlefield V - November 20th

    I slowed it down to 25% speed and it’s definitely the Sten of that the guy I’m shooting at that kills me.

    I'm getting pissed off with the shitty netcode or whatever is causing unfair firefights. Either that, or the Sten has the accuracy and damage of a sniper rifle or something (see clip below). I shouldn't be getting insta-killed by an SMG at this range, and while it's possible that this player is somehow super accurate, I somehow doubt it - it's happening all the time. My connection is fine and my ping is low, so this is more than likely Dice / EA's Battlefield launch shit as usual.

    Ha. This is someone else getting the same bug that I encountered a couple of times the other day, although not at all yesterday. It’s sooooo annoying when it happens.

    Who the hell though it'd be good to force auto-spawn at the start of the round? FFS Dice! Half way through choosing my kit for the round and BAM! spawned before I finish selecting it. I'm finding the net code / time-to-kill or whatever really off in this too. I'm getting killed when I'm sure I'm in cover, and I've had loads of situations where I've hit someone with several rounds only for them to run into cover / go prone and then nail me with what feels like a single shot. There are quite a few people complaining of the same thing on the BF V forums. My KD in BF1 was pretty decent and I generally won far more fire-fights than I lost, but here it's painful. Also, they need to fix the player noise - it's like the enemy are running around in carpet slippers! Their footsteps are pretty much silent. They need to bring back the little incidental shuffles and clinks of equipment that have been there in the past and which would alert you to a nearby soldier and give you chance to react. I'd hoped that, after the pretty smooth launch of BF1, that this would be similar, but it looks like we're back to a good ol. buggy BF launch again.

    Do you now have to get into a specific entrance on vehicles? In BF1 you could press the button anywhere next to the tank or whatever and you’d just get in, albeit not instantly, so you could still be shot while clambering aboard. On BFV last night though I was trying to enter a Churchill tank but it only let me get in at a specific point on its hull. In a way it’s pretty neat because, if the driver leaves the vehicle and there’s no other people inside, you could theoretically prevent them from getting back in the hatch by pinning them behind the vehicle with suppressive fire.

    You can see the server region (and ping) in the server browser. Sorry about the noise my mic was making last night BTW. I figured out that it was because it was charging via usb from my pc. Once I disconnected the charge cable it was fine.

    Maybe I’ve missed it, but I can’t see a way to switch teams now either.

    It wasn’t a few minutesunfortunately. After 15 minutes of waiting I decided to jump into another match (but stay in the party). However, unlike previous Battlefields, instead of just automatically dropping you from the squad, you instead have to manually remove yourself or you can’t join another game. It’s just an extra step that doesn’t need to be there. In fact, from first impressions, a lot of the UI is less intuitive than before, which is frustrating. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but a lot of it seems unnecessary.

    The upgrade stuff seems a bit weird. There seem to be paths for guns and vehicles, and if you equip a certain choice you can’t unequip it again until you get to a certain rank. I miss the days when games came with manuals.

    Joining games with friends seems to be a pain in the arse. If the server is full and you want to play another match while waiting, you have to manually remove yourself from the squad or you can’t get into another game (unless I was doing it wrong). I got a really annoying bug in two matches too where all of a sudden, instead of firing the weapon, the trigger instead started opening the friends list and the only way to resolve it was to quit the match. Otherwise, despite the disappointment of not being able to join friends, I had a good time. My BF-109 is already almost fully specced out.

    To turn more tightly, roll and pull back on the stick. Use the throttle to slow your speed in order to bank tighter (sometimes, if you're being chased, a less experienced pilot will then overshoot and you can nail them from behind). My main tip though is to always fly in third-person view - you can see far more and it's much easier to spot threats / targets. You can always temporarily switch back into first-person if you want a more accurate strafing run or something (although I tend to stay in third-person nearly alll the time). Now that there's a dedicated third-person bomb reticule, bombing will probably be easier now (in BF1 you either had to switch views, or practice until you knew when and where to drop your bombs successfully by eye alone). There are re-supply stations on the map for tanks (and new ones can be built - and destroyed - at certain places). This video gives an overview:

    Just a single match so far. Spent the entire game in the sky nailing multiple Spitfires and bombers with my BF-109 without a single death. The feel of the planes (based on a single game) is great. Faster than BF1, but still with the control and agility to dogfight properly. Does anyone know if the vehicle resupply zones indicate if you're successful (in the same way that you get a little noise when picking up ammo as infantry)? I flew through the resupply markers multiple times and never ran out of ammo through the full game, so presume I was doing it right, but I never noticed anything to indicate I was being re-supplied?

    No PS4 version it seems though. That I could find at least.

    I should hopefully be on come Friday. I've had a Battlefield hiatus for almost six months, but played a bit of BF1 this week just to brush of the cobwebs. Several thousand hours of muscle memory built over the past decade or so are still intact.

    Just seen this on my phone after coming out of the cinema. Made me feel really sad. RIP
