I'd like to play some battlefield with a squad. You can add me (my nickname is my psn id and my avatar is a hippo). Mind, my level is 1 on ps4 as I mostly played bf on my xbox one. Anyway, add me so we can play.

@JohnnyShoulder Right I am in the same boat with my KDR, which is one reason when I play games like CoD or even Battlefield I tend to play objective modes rather then TDM. CoD wise when I do play objective modes I tend to always be one of the top scorers but I have lousy KDR.

Don't get me wrong though, it's not like I don't try to improve, I think with me though it's just my reaction time, the fact that I play other games the FPSs and the fact that I just use base controllers if that makes sense. I just know that I am not good in that area so I look for other ways to help my team.

@Tasuki Yeah same here mate play to your strengths. As I've got older my reactions have taken a knock so it's good to find other ways to help you team win.

Been playing a bit more Battlefield 1 the past few days and I am really getting into it now. It's funny cause last night I played a few rounds of CoD: WWII and I found myself just feeling annoyed with the "stupid" deaths. When I play Battlefield I find that I am able to take my time so to speak set up and go from there, with CoD I just find myself running around mostly not really even thinking much.

Don't get me wrong I still enjoy CoD but with Battlefield I just feel more relaxed.

Yeah me too. I can remember when i got my 360 and wanted to get into a good online multiplayer. Played the first Modern Warfare and then Bad Company. Much preferred the slightly slower paced Battlefield games tonto twitch based reactions needed for CoD. CoD also can't compete with the size of the maps, destruction, vehicle combat and squad play imo.

@JohnnyShoulder Right Battlefield 1 also gives me that sense of an epic all out war yet when I play CoD I feel like it's training manuvers or something.

If the rumors are true and the next Battlefield is WWII I just might check that out.

Titanfall 2 is a good middle ground between BF and COD. The maps aren't so big that you have to spend 5 minutes traversing into the action only to get sniped like in BF, and they're not so tight that you get shot in the back if you stay in one area for more than 15 seconds like in COD.

Make it a great day!

@Tasuki I personally would prefer something like Bad Company 3, the historical games do not click with me. Unlees they did something like Vietnam, which i think Bad Company 2 had an expansion for, which was awesome. @smelly_jr Good shout Titanfall 2 was really good and quite easy to get into. I kinda drifted away from it after not too long however. Amazing single player campaign too.

@JohnnyShoulder I always liked the historical FPS games more but then again I love history in general. While I do like Sci-fi shooters like Halo or Black Ops series of CoD and even stuff like Doom, Wolfenstein and even stuff like GoldenEye the historical games tend to hold my attention more if that makes sense.

@smelly_jr While I don't mind sci-fi shooters the mech aspect just turned me off to Titanfall.

@Tasuki You should give Titanfall 2 a go, it surprised me how much I enjoyed it and I've never been that into sci-fi shooters. I probably drifted from it due to not having anyone to play with.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, but right now I have more then enough games to play without adding one that kinda of interests me. Besides In play these games more for the MP then anything else and having both CoD and Battlefield I just don't have the time nor the energy to invest in another FPS. Heck I haven't played Overwatch in about a year and still trying to find time for that.

Comparing Battlefield with CoD is like comparing GT Sport to Burnout: Paradise. Battlefield is more geared towards reality and squads where as CoD is geared more towards the fast paced, more arcade side of the genre. Battlefield is a game I prefer to play with friends only where as CoD I can play solo as well as with friends. Attitudes are different too. If you are protecting your objective in BF, you are doing a 'job' but in CoD that's called 'camping' because people want you to leave things unprotected so they can capture it easily. By the same token though, you don't get snipers running around as if they are shotguns in BF.

Personally I like both for very different reasons. CoD is great for that fast paced arcade style FPS shooter - I play Hardcore so its important to be aware of your position and where the enemies are most likely to be coming from. Battlefield is great when I have a bunch of friends that we can squad up and play our roles, work as a 'squad' - I do find it can be too slow though.

I do not like games based on historic and brutal history - almost mocks those that died by making these 'fun' games. I would rather see an alternative history version - maybe a steampunk setting. Anything that really separates it more as 'fiction'. Given the choice though, I prefer the near modern future onwards. It also allows for more creativity. Games like Infinite Warfare are based on where we are now, what we (as a species) are developing and projecting it forward - not using 'Alien' tech (unless you believe that all the technology is coming from reverse engineering crashed UFO's). So I don't mind Advanced Movement as it does bring more creativity into the movement which had become stale until Titanfall (which is more Sci-fi) released. Near future settings are preferred to historic settings if you want to go more 'traditional' in weapons and movement as these are still pure fiction.

CoD has always been a 60fps game and holds that as a priority. BF has been more visual and that seems more of a priority than performance. Chances are though, if we do see a PS5 in the near future, BF could well offer performance as well as visuals...

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

So I’m still quite liking it, but Battlefield 1 needs better matchmaking. I was trying to play Frontlines, and it kept putting me in an empty server that was remaining empty. I knew I wasnt the only person in the world trying to play that mode on the base game maps, so after a little digging, I found that the right setting for searching for servers would help. I found a full server and waited a couple minutes and got in. There were also a bunch of mostly empty servers (1 or two people) that should have all been combined.
I also watched some tip videos on YouTube and they really helped my performance. I find I’m decent with with smaller m player numbers 6v6 as opposed to the larger ones. I’m not sure how much it has to do with experience though. My K/D with Destiny was around 2 by the time was I done, but I also put a lot of time into it. I’m starting to raise my .6 K/D lol.
I have no I interest into Battlefield V though. I hope this keeps a decent player base after that comes out.

@Jaz007 So after all your talk about Battlefield 1 I decided to fire it up a bit last night. It's funny seeing me in these lobbies with people that are level 100, 90, 150 etc. and here I am level 8 lol. Still In quite enjoy this game more then CoD. Where as with CoD I get so aggervated when I die, Battlefield 1 I die just as much but it doesn't get to me as much, go figure.

I play conquest as I like the feel of the big matches it makes me feel like I am a little cog in a big machine so to speak.

Also not sure if anyone has mentioned it but over the next few months they will be giving out the DLC for free for a limited time so I would keep an eye out for those in the PSN.

I am excited for Battlefield V as it's my favorite war I love discussing and pretty much learning anything about WWII so yeah to say I am looking forward to it is an understatement.

I don't think you will have to worry about the player count dropping off on Battlefield 1 when V comes out, heck there's plaenty of people who still play Battlefield 3 and 4.

Dice has a back to basics special playlist right now for conquest. No vehicles and only two basic weapons tea available. It’s a lot of fun. Since I line the medic and his rifle, restricting people to that type of weapon and one other worlds really well for me and my K/D is higher in this than it normally is. If you have the game give it a try.

So anyone who is interested the season pass for Battlefield 1 is now free on PSN. Can't really pass up that offer.

Wow.so after.installing the season pass I figured I go back to this game since I have the Battlefield V itch and all I can say is after playing BF V this game is trash. Weapon balance is bad, the classes don't feel any different, and the TTK is just bad. Shame too cause I liked this game but after playing the bit of five, I can see why alot of BF fans didn't like BF 1.

Another game to delete from my hard drive.

@Tasuki Shame you feel that way. I haven't played a Battlefield game before BF1 (okay, I played BF2 and the original with bots way back in the day, but I'm not counting those), but liked the classes and thought the TTK was really good. I can see why some might feel it's a bit long, but I like it way. Anyone else have any feelings towards longer or shorter TTK? I'm curious to see how others feel about it.

Jaz007

Tasuki

@Jaz007 I just don't feel that empting an entire SMG clip into someone is realistic especially after they have been wounded by other teammates. The classes were good in BF1 but BFV took it a step beyond. While yes in BFV everyone can heal Medics can do it faster. In BFV support can also build fortifications. Now with BF1 they just all seem the same. Yeah they have different loadouts but nothing that really sets them apart.

I prefer about a middle of the road TTK. I feel that CoD for example has a way to fast TTK alot of times I am dead even before I can react in CoD. However in BF1 it feels too slow that alot of times an enemy should be dead but alot of times they just literally soak up my bullets then spot me (reveal me to their teammates) and then I get snipped, and the survive. I can see why they maybe made the TTK slow on BF1 so that way it encourages squad play rather someone going all John Rambo but still it's too slow. BFV felt just right to me. I was able to take enemies out with a SMG at a reasonable rate and didn't feel like every weapon had a better TTK then the SMG and would make SMGs pointless.

I found BF 1 too grenade heavy for me. Most games would end up everyone chucking grenades everywhere, which is not fun for me. Also found the weapons, upgrades and vehicles a bit boring too.
