I see. Kinda sucks, but I don't think that's much of a deal breaker for me.

Just chilling out and playing a few games without having to focus 100% is pretty appealing, especially after a long day at work. But I do get what you're saying.
They're appealing to the Fartnite populace.

I learnt with BF3 and BF4, that "Premium" is an absolute waste of time. The DLC maps get played for a week after release and then (the servers) just die out completely. There are some times a few cool guns in the DLC's but nothing that I'd regret not having.

EA fell off the rails a long time ago, and some thing I'll never understand is that they'll have YouTube'ers play their game and review it, giving it constructive criticism, but they never really seem to take the advice.

BFBC3 would reignite the scene, as its pretty much died over the last few years.
The need to incorporate ESports properly, give a single player, and ditch the whole premium BS. Instead have micro-transactions for skins and aesthetics.
There is no premium pass in BFV, they got rid of it completely. Instead, additional maps, weapons, game modes and vehicles will be released periodically. There are two in game currencies. One you earn through playing the game, the other can be bought with real money. The one you earn in game is used to unlock weapons, weapon skills/specializations, player skins and vehicles. The paid for currency can only be used to purchase skins, nothing else. Cosmetics only, in other words. Loot crates have also been removed from the game.

I think it has the potential to be the next BF that I sink a lot of hours into. A lot of people are basing their decision to skip the game on a very bad reveal trailer and a beta that we had 2 months ago. They have release a 200+ page document with all the fixes they made since that beta. Note, that's 200 pages, not 200 items fixed.

To those diving in 24 hours from now, see you on the battlefield!

Will see you gents on the battlefield tomorrow... couldn't agree more that this game even from the beta seemed like the best fps I have played in a long time.. coming from a huge fps fan.. R199 a month and zero loot boxes is an awesome deal and I think a lot of the nay sayers will be joining us soon enough.

For any one who has Origin Premier. The server are up.
Having problem getting in to SA servers, EU servers are fine and you can get in to the game. Have to say the game looks good :)

Agreed Nivek, there's just something about it. Hard to pin down to one thing but it just feels right. I played CS for many years and moved on when CS:Source came out to COD and then eventually BF4 and was converted ever since. BF1 was an odd game. I had fun but it wasn't consistent fun. There were so many white wash matches and random deaths from above - it was like having an AC130 on every map. I guess that was the "behemoth" feature.

Anyway, for people wondering if you have to pay R199 per month to play BFV, you don't. EA did what EA does best and made the impatient of us part with R199 to play the game early. If you buy the game, even standard edition (deluxe is the only other option), then you have the game + all future content releases such as maps, weapons, vehicles, etc. This would normally have been restricted to "premium" players but this game it ain't! No more community division or wasted premium purchase because none of the SA servers put premium maps on rotation until they are free anyway.

Get it. Got it? Good! See you out there

Ahhh! That's awesome.
Think my ignorance got the better of me, haven't made much of an effort to see how the game works etc.

Either way, I am still looking forward to it.
AFAIK the actual release day is the 20th of this month?
Are there SA servers yet?

Last night there were 3 SA servers up

From about 5 pm on we averaged about 60 players on the conquest map. I was up jamming till about 12.

Comments so far.

Twisted steel is one insane map. It looks amazing.
Fjell 652 is probably the most intense infantry map in the pack. Loving the action on it
Arras (fields of yellow) good map, with something for everyone. Also, don’t hide in the churches tower :)



I Did not get to play all the new maps. What I will say is, this is the most fun I had in BF sins BF3.
