    At times it looks legit like a mobile game, so bad after the stunning game that was BF1.. and of course BF5

    I played a round of BFV after BF2042 and it felt like a 2 generation newer game, the destruction/sounds/graphics and movement just poop on it.

    I do miss some BF3, BF4 was good but I didnt like the changes to the SMG's and few other things.

    I'm not sure if steam is the best place to compare Origin games concurrent players tbh. I guess it's at least a metric, but i'm sure many didn't buy on Steam (I think it wasn't even available for ages)

    Apparently they acknowledged its overly CPU bound and would work on it.

    Who knows if they will though.

    My initial thoughts were they optimised for the 8 core consoles so anything less had issues. But then its bf2042 so really its just a mess.

    I think he had a 3600 and a RTX3070,

    I have the same and wanted to see if the 5800X gained him a decent FPS boost,

    I just bought a 3900x off the FS forums so hopefully this will see me through for the next few years,

    Considering they removed XP from portal cause of farming, then released Zombie mode which was an official XP farm, I would not be surprised if the made it worse.

    Never got around to buying this ... and I'm glad I didn't commit with the pre-order.

    I've found it difficult to find a match. Then i found one the other day and got 71 kills and 1 death - The player base just seems to have no idea about killing snipers lol. It's a far cry from the people you get on BF4

    I played a game at 7am and it was a full server..

    Console players are dead meat vs snipers so it was probably them.
