    Looks fun. The loot on dead bodies does need refining.

    Gear magically flies out of boxes and chests on to the ground when you open them too, with the shiny green/purple icons on them etc. Trying to copy Fortnite I guess..
    At least with the larger map and lots of vehicles, including choppers, it might have more "original BF" style gameplay you can't do in the base game anymore.

    edit: lol jack said the same thing ^^

    Watched some more footage and looks fun but I think the armor system may need tweaking.. It's possible a headshot with sniper on enemy only destroys armor if they have 100 armor.. It better do HP damage too!

    Dead enemies never seem to have armor on them as it's always destroyed.. If that's the case it also needs tweaking like pubg or something as you deserve more armor it you kill 3 dudes..

    It's just clumsy. I can't say I was impressed with anything about the few matches I watched.

    I also liked how one of the squadmates is designated in a red colour for identification, which is the same colour and icon as spotted enemies. Like how does that not get pulled up in early testing?

    Early testing in BF lol? No such thing.

    Chances are the bugs and things that need changing will make it into full release and will be slowly patched over the next few months. All whilst breaking other things in between.

    no open beta = no early testing

    the days of devs testing their games properly are dead, can't remember the last time I played a game without bugs in it at launch that would have been found if they tested it.

    my favorite to this day is division 1s starting area where people couldn't walk through each other so you had people intentionally stand in the exit preventing new users from starting.

    Anyone know the exact time? Looking forward to giving Firestorm a crack. Division 2 is becoming a bit too repetitive...

    Been watching this on twitch, can't say I'm terribly impressed. Shame, was looking forward to it.

    Fortunately/Unfortunately Apex has come out and kind of redefined peoples expectations of how a BR should work how they can be fun and still have some kind of skill curve. This BFV firestorm looks uber clunky, very 'hardcore' and very little room for error as far as drops are concerns. Doesn't seem to be very generous on the loot side either.

    I don't mind more hardcore games at all, but this seems to be a very unrefined design, I don't see how any kind of legit playtesting was done as every streamer I see play it has almost verbatim the same gripes with it?

    Finally finished work and trying to solo queue. After 3 mins of waiting I stopped. Surely should be games on release night..

    I am all for it being hardcore. Got apex to satisfy other type of BR itch. But yes apex has set the bar high, they literally thought of everything.

    Played several squads as well and kinda enjoy the experiences.

    Only thing worries me is the player base for OCE will be dead within a month unless DICE makes this mode F2p. There are way too many competitors.
