    Yeah its a good line, I never seen one of his videos but he got a sub from me.

    I can guarantee you there is exec meetings at EA wondering do they please the shareholders and release, or delay and release better product that will hold player base.

    Dice revealed the last 5 specialists. One of which is a character with a wallhack. If we thought a server full of Webster clones was bad, her wallhack skills are so much more useful than literally all of the other skills in the game.

    How to negate cheating 101, build the hacks into your game and turn them into features. Genius level IQ moves here.

    Wow built in wallhacks, this game is going to be DOA.

    It looks like BF4 will have some life left in it yet.

    Shows how useless stingers are. You needed at least three hits to take out a helicopter and you don't have the ammo because they just flare away at least one of them. You can't even one-shot them with the anti-tank launcher.

    Only way that could be countered is a well played AA tank or maybe a lucky tank shot. Which on that map has having to try and deal with I think 8 enemy aircraft (IIRC it was 2 each of the scout helo, attack helo, transport vtol and jets). Which is impossible. That video they didn't even show up as far as I could see, either no-one bothered to use it or they used it as anti-infantry or kept getting killed too quickly.

    I've always been an AA vehicle user all the way back to BF2 and EA have always been bad at balancing ground to air, as they listen to pilots non stop complaining to nerf AA because they all want to go 100-0 and think getting killed from the ground is "cheap" unless it's a bullshit lucky shot from an anti-tank launcher. Plus they have a total aversion to adding two of them to a map. The beta AA tank was so bad, you had to be perfect with your gun shots because it overheated so quickly, and the missiles were terrible and as usual, suffered from low range.

    When I played BF2 pretty seriously in a clan back in the golden era of 16v16 clan wars on Gamearena, my two main non-infantry roles were attack chopper gunner and AA tank user. Not in a clan match but my high kill count was 126 in the MEC attack chopper with it's explosive cannon on Sharqi after we took out the US cobra with the old school clicky TV missile, capped their spawn flag and then spent the rest of the game mowing down defenceless infantry. And even then we had to fly back to home to rearm, occasionally repaired from machine guns or cannons and lock-on missiles were limited to extremely vulnerable fixed dual stinger points.

    Now you can just autoheal after 15 seconds without damage (or have a rep guy who heals the whole thing in 5 seconds), have infinite gun ammo with an overheat mechanic and infinitely reloading rockets, and the crash hitboxes are so lenient you can smash into buildings or trees or the ground and just fly away.

    Latest pseudo trailer being well received :lol:




    So much so they unlisted it.. Surprised they didn't delete it completely.

    About the only thing that gives me some relief from the huge feeling of disappointment (instead of hype) leading up to release are the comments. Sad but slowly accepting the fact BF is probably officially, and irreversibly dead, regardless of the fact it's still BF by name.

    Every new blog post , new video, twitter post just seems to make it worse. I will try to keep an open mind though. I do want to play it, just to give it at least a short chance, but i'm not handing them 80 bucks to do so.

    Wow that was a bad trailer. They need to fire their marketing team.. Again.. (after bfv reveal debacle)

    Even the new nvidia trailer copping some flak.. Noticeable frame drops on something advertising DLSS..
