I have premium, should be up for some Naval strike but am not, unlikely to put any time in at all, am pretty much done with Bf4 at this point unless jumping on with friends for a while.

Replace BF4 with gaming in general minus Hearthstone and that is exactly how I feel lately. rolleyes.gif

Had a few good games of BF4 the other day. I'm really looking forward to Naval Strike.

That said... I also played a few rounds of Red Orchestra 2.
OMG the difference in hit detection and firefights is huge... massively huge. RO2 uses server side, but man oh man it was so refreshing to play a game where you can actually dodge bullets. I forgot how much fun RO2 is.

Not got to that point yet lol, had an absolute blast trying to learn CS.GO, I dont like to call BF because I have had 1300hrs which have mainly been happy in both 3 and 4 but just can not enjoy it atm, too many cheap deaths, too many issues not related to my performance so maybe just a break is in order. It has quite a shelf life left so no doubt return at some point just at the moment is more fun playing versus bots in another environment than the Bf scenario.

Don't be too disheartened.
In the grand scheme of things a PC isn't expensive. Life is more important anyways. It just means you get to build a new rig later with all new hardware thumb.gif

I dunno...if you think it's helping you in some way, have fun and good luck but some of the best gamers I know are still playing on 60 Hz monitors. Although I don't see how it can hurt having it at 120. I think latency has a LOT more to do with how soon you're seeing your enemies than boosting your framerate but if you really believe it's making that much of a difference, I'm happy for you. thumb.gif

I think refresh rates are like wine, cigars, audiophile equipment etc. Some people are set up to be able to perceive the difference, some people are not. The other day I had my monitor set to 60Hz (I usually have it set to 96Hz or 120Hz) and started BF4 and it was more jerky and less smooth than it normally is. Then I set it back to 96Hz and it was so much smoother.

I've also get the video hardware to make sure I stay at 96+ FPS to take advantage of the higher refresh rate. I've been spoiled and won't go back to 60Hz.

None of this has helped me get my arms around BF4 though. I was good at BF2, 2142, BF3...just can't get the hang of BF4, though I don't play as much as I did the other games.

Well I need one for school so I would be sacrificing Qingu(pun much intended if you are mythology buff) for a very budget system. This is by far the most powerful computer I have ever owned and I feel like I literally never got to use it for anything. I play Hearthstone and nothing else. Still backsliding feels terrible mad.gif

Not important in the scheme of life, sometimes a step back is needed to move forward. Your not in an exclusive club there. Every day is a new one.

Hmm... sounds like a good opportunity for a good laptop thumb.gif

I love my desktop but there are so many opportunities where a laptop would be wonderful to have. Tech is pretty good now, you wouldn't need to backslide that much.

That's a nice way of saying someone's eyes or "brain tracking speed" blows. thumb.gif

I totally see what you're saying though. I've had folks put on my headphones and go, "Yeah...and?" Then I've had folks put them on and the next day they're asking me about which headphones and which amp. I've got one friend that cannot tell the difference between her ~128 Kbps MP3's downloaded from who knows where and my ripped FLAC collection!

I'm not surprised by your troubles w/ BF4 though. I was OK in BF2, OK in 2142, terrible in BC2, horrible in BF3, and am doing pretty well in 4. I don't know what it is, but the game is VERY different than 3. Now if only we could get:

1. SERVER SIDE HIT DETECTION
2. 128 TICK RATE
