[battlefieldo] Blackout Battlefield - Page 22

post #211 of 247
All I know is that I bought it, and in my opinion I don't like it. I also feel I fell for the hype and bought it too early. The only thing I see pulling me back in is if it gets modded at some point in its life. Until then it will sit in my drawer. It was my own fault to think this would be a true successor to BF2. Would I like it to be patched? Yes. Do I like the direction it is going? No. Is there much I can do? Other then not buy EA, not really. I am glad to say that BF3 was the first and last EA game I bought in a long time.

Holy crap. Are you guys kidding me???? The expectations some people have are outrages. EA/Dice, give you a game thats pretty, realistic and fun as hell to play and everyone still complains! I play with three different platoons and not one of us has ever complained. Dont look for problems. Just enjoy the damn game. Dont like it, play something else. This "blackout" sounds like a 13 year old complaining.

I think you're mixing up prioritizing what people put effort into caring about, with not caring about anything full stop.

Ironically, DICE are standing upto multiple problems to improve the game for us by telling us what problems they've acknowledges and what they're fixing/tweaking.

I don't really get where this whole "raaah screw you DICE you dont care at all" thing is coming from? How many other devs have given their games this much support post sale (not including subscription based services)? They were still patching BC2 even when BF3 was just about to launch.

Are they perfect? No way, but imo the (attempted) level of outrage doesn't seem to match the reality of the situation.

I'm not actually trolling so I don't think I understand. I'm not seeing the point you're trying to make, I guess.

I doez not understand either. There's a specific meme out there that expresses how I felt when I first saw news about this blackout.

I must just writing about it the wrong way then or something... Oh well

I think you, along with quite a few other people, may be blinded by nostalgia.

I completely agree with you. If this was released with a different name, I bet my view would be different. Its not a horrible game. Its just not what I expected. I may reinstall it at some point and try it again, it just still was a letdown for me. I had it in my head it would be BF2 with updated graphics I guess.

No wonder lol tongue.gif.

I'm guessing you didn't keep up with the news/discussions too much during development as there was many an argument in regards to the game not just being Battlefield 2 with updated visuals.

Its not just about fixes. Its about personal wants and other things that aren't necessary.

If you haven't tried the karkand maps, reinstall and try them; the game is actually much better. The biggest problem I have with BF3 are the poor stock maps, when BTK came out I pretty much exclusively played on them. DICE just needs to release more maps that have the same quality as BTK. Sure BF3 removed some key things such as the commander which was a bad move, but they also added in cool stuff such as the soflam which is very useful. I am not really impacted by voip because I play with friends and we use TS, but most servers have their own ts.

I share this opinion. Played the crap out of it for a couple weeks and haven't touched it since. It's a decent game, but it definitely lost its charm very quickly. I can't be bothered to join a match when invited anymore.... I'd just as soon play something else (like BC2).
