Like one of you guys said, I also prefer the Vanguard open beta. I tested out AMD FSR, it's amazing

I'm not enjoying the game for some reason. I still play Bf4 on Ps4, so this feels different. Maybe that's why., lol

I dnt game on pc, only have a 60hz 1080p monitor but gave it a shot on 5950x and 2060 and it was surprisingly not very resource heavy.

Edit. I see it's using 10 to 12 gig of ram. 😁

saw one of those 4 wheeler bikes come up from underground...and 2 guys just spawn like terminators...and then get killed by the friendlies in the squad i was in.

Managed to kill somebody with a pistol....thats probably the only kill i got in that chaos i played for about an hour.

can see this is BETA as everyone wants to do their own thing

so when I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get ammo, best bet is to just suicide I guess

one thing I don't understand:

you have your 4 operators, yet each can still choose the loadout of any other, so what was the point?

yes, I know each operator has 1 unique ability, but that is about it

could just as easily made those into selectable options like any other gear

Played a few matches and i am not convinced. Yes it's a beta so no issues for me regarding the glitch here and there BUT i am happy to say that i wont regret that i cant buy this one. Will stay on MW and cold war.

To be fair, your GPU is less powerful than the new iPhone. They sent men to the moon in 1969 on half-baked potatoes. And those were still more powerful than the GTX 1060 3GB.

Why are you saying that my GPU is bad? Some people don't even have GPU's.
Not everyone is rich enough to upgrade everytime a new part comes out

Also super unimpressed by this beta. The gunplay is weak, the sound design is some of the worst I have ever heard and the graphics struggle to keep up with last-gen games from 4 years ago - I got more enjoyment out of watching the trailer 🤷‍♂️

It's not meant as an insult. I'm merely saying you are experiencing poor performance because your card was slow when it was released 5 years ago and you're trying to play a AAA game.

There might be some videos on Youtube which cover the various graphics settings and which ones affect performance, there might be some tuning you can do to get extra performance.

Aight, thanks for clearing that up. I do know that my GPU is weak.

Trying to play a game on mouse and keyboard, after 5 years makes me feel old. Feel like I got nerve damage after holding that shift key down.

Maps are too big, hoping for more smaller maps with infantry game play. I hate the grapple I tend to use it too much, cos it's there.

And I guess from now on it's console gaming for me. Hate to say it I enjoy it more. So will grab a PS4 copy, until I get a PS5.

felt too bad to alt+F4 so just waited out the game. so underwhelming.
Maybe I'm too old for this die respawn die respawn kak. seems so pointless.
A re-skinned BF4 would've been cheaper and more fun.

This game is a huge scam, i can see priority is for consoles and those operators are just there to rape our wallets.

My fibre is in! Ek is 1ste Vox fibre install in Upington gewees. Nou kan ek ook vannaand bietjie Beta.
VOX are dodgy with their prices. They wont tell you when they lower their prices and will keep on charging you an older higher price unless you request that they move you over to the new cheaper price. Happened to me about 2 months ago.

PSA: It is possible to redeem a cheap Nvidia bundle code to your Origin account via VPN ;)

Awe, price and link?? :D
It's almost the same procedure as this was: MW

Purchase link: Nvidia key (I personally payed with BTC)
Use at own risk.

However this time you have to redeem the code via Geforce experience while on Asia/Pacific VPN with a RTX 3070 or up.

So if you have a RTX 3070+ this is straight forward.

If you don't you'll have to ask someone with a supported card to activate it on your account (both geforce experience and origin)

This is a hassle but much better than spending 1k on steam.

Wow that's real cheap, I'm going to try this method!
