With some news that Battlefiled will most likely return to the big WWII, I have to say I cannot contain my excitement. I think Dice has a real shot in creating a very good campaign with war stories (which I loved) based on multiple fronts from different perspectives. The main thing I really hope they nail is historical accuracy on the campaign side, because It really is an important thing to get right. What do ya'll think? Excited? Hyped? WHY ARE YOU NOT HYPED. Anyway i'll drop the twitter teaser from earlier today. I didn't see a place to discuss the game or speculate so I thought id drop one! If you do not know already, the 23rd is the major reveal.

I'm equally excited about the BF Series but DICE and EA have shown that they do not care about gaming communities. They keep pushing to make PC games just like consoles, giving admins very limited power.

I really don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but the fact that they refuse to allow third-party plugins such as AdKats, BF4DB, etc. is really a big disappointment at least from the admin side of the house. In BF1 we had to deal with extremely limited ban lists, something like a max of 100 people banned from the server at any given time. That's ridiculous.

Hopefully, the gameplay, maps, and weapons make up for all their other shitty decisions.

NO PRE-ORDERS!

Those are some points that I had definitely not thought about. Considering you see the admin side of things more than the average user i could only imagine. I am keeping my fingers crossed, because a WWII game on modern frostbite is going to be sick. 

I would like to believe they learned from the lootbox ass-blasting they received on Reddit (create a sense of pride and accomplishment) and took notice regarding the large population fall BF1 received. Community is everything, so like I said, fingers crossed. I never really enjoyed BF1's server browser and the lack of hardcore kinda made the decision to uninstall easy.

This is our chance! Hopefully they don't cock up the release as they did with BF4.

We'll see. Looking forward to a fresh Battlefield that "isn't" like BF1! I think I got 6 hours total play with BF1. Some stuff was good.
Wishfully the next BF4 is closely tuned to BF4's strong points.

4 player squads might be a bit more balanced then the current 5 player job - the way i see it, it's just too easy to dominate the game with one or two competent squads. functional private servers and playable hardcore is the bare minimum.

Hopefully they don't snowflake the shit out of it like COD did with their WW2 game. I about spit water all over my monitor when I saw a black female German soldier. Nonsense PC crap like that just completely ruins the game.

The private servers need a lot of control as well, if it's all matchmaking and little control from private servers it's going to basically suck ass and there's no way you can get around that. I'm sure this is how it will go and I'll still try it out of course, but if piss poor I'm going back to BF4.

Hardcore is a must as well. No hardcore, no play.

Like you however, I am very excited about this game. WW2 to me has always been the best genre for FPS games, and I will certainly at least give this a try unlike BF1 which I skipped with much disfavor.

Cuban said it correctly as well, NO PRE ORDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I promise you, they will NOT run out of digital copies EVER.

I think it's a fresh take from what I've seen. I've apparently not fallen for the trap of taking the reveal trailer too seriously but I see some people have.

Yes there were female infantry soldier whether it be actual soldiers or resistance fighters. Even pilots and tank crews.
That "robot arm" is a very close design to prosthetics used during the time period.

That V1 rocket was stellar. They even got the sound right.

I've been hearing a lot of people complaining about realism and historical accuracy.
BF has and will likely never be a credible source for history or realism. That's why we play it. It's fun.

Hoopy, please just stop. What we saw was in no way realistic to anything from WW2. Yes it's a game, no it doesn't really matter, but please stop arguing a point which is quite frankly ridiculous.

Please find a historical photo from WW2 that looks anything like this, lmfao.

Anybody who didn't know this is from BF V would think it's from a Far Cry game or something, this is so bad in regards to WW2 authenticity it's hilarious. I mean, wtf is Kratos doing in the game hahaha.

LoL, just read the Youtube comments. I can't remember seeing a game panned this badly. GOOD, they deserve it. Even the fanboys are keeping their mouths shut at this point lol.

that's not how you make porridge, errr i mean battlefield.
it looks a bit cartoon-ish - could be easy on the hardware?
it might play well and we may get more then 64 player servers?
no word on the important stuff.
better try open beta before settling (still lub you dice), also pre-order perks lol - http://variety.com/2018/g ... d-v-beta-1202820014/

I see re-tooling the weapons damages from this short video. Taking down a Me109E with a short burst from a .50 cal is most unrealistic.
But as it is goes, don't expect historical accuracy. Yes it's a game. The female soldier is hot!

I posted this in the sidebar, but JackFrags has a video out discussing some of the new features in BFV that were not discussed in the livestream.

I tried to embed it but i could not get it to work, so here is the link.

Yep thanks, those all sound like good ideas. With any luck, that trailer will just be for the over the top Michael Bay type style single player and the multiplayer will be better. I'll likely be getting the game anyway after some reviews come out, private servers are confirmed, etc. I'd like to have something new to play, but BF4 is still worlds of fun to me so I don't really care either way.
