    Yeah, it's available. I found it a little while ago. If you don't already have your file saved then the fix is basically downloading a generic file that allows you to login and access single player, however iirc it's basic kits only and no unlocks etc.

    Yeah 7pm. They're turning off early access at 5pm to do maintenance on the servers for 2 hours and, I'd assume, launch more in preparation for the onslaught.

    It has been in early access, open to people who have pre-orders for the game. Everyone else gets in tonight.

    Thats strange, I've been playing for two days and have not preordered the game... as far as I know :Paranoid:

    I'm playing via Steam.

    Are you an EA play member? I think they had access too. Otherwise, lucky you :Pirate:

    Ah this makes sense, I'm an Xbox Pass subscriber which does give me EA play access.

    Its interesting though since I'm playing via Steam which then opens Origin to play.

    Seems like everyone should have purchased xbox pass for $1 to play the beta then.

    Youve gotta be the only person in the world wanting the fucking choppers buffed, their movement is dogshit feels like a phonegame with autohover but the dmg needs no buffing.

    You are sad you dont get 80-1 KDR while soloing a chopper and doing 2 positions? imo 3seconds to switch position in any vehicle is completely fine for balance and this insta position swap shit needs to go.

    B site is literally endless choppers strafing runs while being unkillable with the trash AA and sitting out of range of the M5.

    Sounds like a normal BF game where the airtards ruin it for everyone else. The last time DICE got it right was back in BF1942 with fixed and powerful AA which pilots had to respect.....everything since then has been a shit sandwich.

    ok, it sounds like you're a little bit butt hurt, where did the chopper touch you?

    to answer your question, no - ordenance from an airship should have much much more damage, the miniguns are 8/10 tracer rounds.

    spawn in a jet and fly, or load up in the little transport chopper and mince them with the gatling gun.

    seriously man, i pointed out 12 things and your only comment is about choppers........ go for a spin in BF4 HC and get a feel for what they should be.

    Absolute garbage that some are still enjoying. Visually step backwards to previous games, buggy, poorly designed.

    Couple cool things. Has potential, but would need a delay.

    This is great fun, y’all are crazy. It does need a UX pass but that’s on the cards apparently.

    BF4 HC is a pile of shit as well, nothing dice has ever touched has a semblance of balance.

    Heres an easy balance for this shit, player/squad or team credits for the vehicles that starts low AF and builds from offence cap points only with a reasonable max balance so its not airforce vs infantry in the first 15seconds.

    No offence intended either doc. Just enough games of BF to know the vehicles are needed but need to be balanced to need 2-3 people to operate not just 1 guy with a macro on his keyboard hopping gunner to pilot, best solo BF4 HC chopper I saw got 159-3 on shanghai in viper, kill him and hes back in 30 seconds.
