    Same thing last night, it was one after the other after just getting into the game. Sunday night gaming was crash free.

    So I did the anticheat fix and set it to below low and get it to reset the service if it fails. Was ok after that.

    Wonder whats going to go wrong night.

    I am not. PUBG and BFV died. It's only game people playing.

    I want another map.

    Another class or two.

    And few more fun type weapons. Like a spear gun that pins people to walls.

    I think my wants are more realistically going to occur before yours.....

    Yes, but mine are better.

    So if rating "wants" by Awesomeness x Timeliness, I'd think we'd have the same rating.

    You assume the battlepass wont add any of your wants.
    Also an extra map dilutes the player pool as its split between the two (see PUBG).
    Also extra weapons and characters come with balance issues.
    Yours are definitely not objectively better, it could not be determined which is better until you saw stats of characters and contents of battlepass.

    :) nah, PUBG is dead, it was just walking around not yet knowing it. Needed a gentle tap on the shoulder and a kind hand pointing toward the door.

    BFV seems to have players in grand operations, played some last night.. took a while to find form but got there in the end.

    Mudfish $1.25 a month and u can have 80-120ms pings on SEA FPP instant matches.

    Heaven forbid I expect the company to give me a playable game without paying an extra monthly fee for an extra service.
    It is fine, I got my 30 bucks worth out of PUBG, I have accepted I will not get to have a good game of FPP on OCE servers ever again so probably wont play the game ever again.

    Having 2 maps does not split players... You simply let the server choose the map, you don't need a player selectable one. It would all be done on the queue level.

    This doesn't often work very well because a lot of players might dislike the new map, or the old map. This is what happened with pubg.

    If there are enough players, it should just be player selectable.

    Bad luck then. Can't keep everyone happy. I don't like the current map :p

    I know what you mean, but being a free game I wouldn't care one bit.

    Ahh yes, then we can have the days of people quitting lobbies over and over until they get the map they want, like when PUBG dropped their second map......

    Easy, they drop from lobbies they can't play for XX amount of time. Kids can go away

    And they'd wanna be sure they have resolved their copious amounts of game crashing issues before they implement this.
    Don't get me wrong, I'd love a new map, but we have to look at the pros and cons of getting a new map. Compared to say, Fortnite who instead continually changes their map but never dilutes the player pool across several.

    This is a really poor way to solve it. If the map is bad, then everyone will be forced to play it, and people will likely just stop playing completely.

    If you look at all maps in the history of games, its impossible to simply make additional maps that are 100% the same in terms of player enjoyment.

    Most likely the new map will be bad, or the new map will be good, making the old map "bad" in comparison.

    Oh yes 100% I agree, get the current game 100% before adding more but at the same time don't take too long!

    As for map, I'd love more/different maps and the split base issues are null IMO, just need to approach it better - there are many ways to skin that cat and everything will have a pro and con. Like you said, add /edit current areas - period areas (eg whole map shifts north by 50% or west by 50% etc) things of that nature. Anyway I'm certainly getting my moneys worth with this game, already spent more time in it than BF5 (I dont think I'll ever go back to that game)

    All I am suggesting is that there are many ways to solve things, people love throwing up a problems, I'm just demonstrating that there are always solutions.

    You will never please everybody so don't try.
