This may have been compounded by the fact I am now learning csgo for the first time ever and you make a valid point. I completely disagree about overlooking the netcode though as is the main mechanic of everything you do in the game and it is simply atrocious. Is more fun playing versus bots for me atm.

i did the pause on december and since january been playing non stop bf4 biggrin.gif like 2-3 hours a day... and i enjoy the game more thatn ever...

I was under the impression everyone received double xp. Hmmm

On that note doesn't EA give us prior warning on when XP events happen?

Seems like JackFrags was ON IT:

"well hidden”
“A Phantom near the camera, can show you the way”
“A Phantom has a background to unravel a mystery, only to discover the cause of death and his misery”
“A Clues lies within a ship, a ship with no sails. And another lies beneath the cave”
“and full of sharks of a mythical tale”
“1942”
“the phantom holds two mystery keys, with one of which unlocks a treasure and a … bigger than you and me”
“to unravel the mystery find the phantom and his tale will be discovered for us to see”
“Find a CCTV camera under a cave, wait until a phantom speaks”
“the phantom knows all”
“the Ship has a message”

There's a premium page where there's sort of a calendar that tells when the events happens.

I agree, but I had felt that way with BC2 and the PC effort they didn't go to-along with the hype etc, then it got worse with Bf3, so I didn't expect much from Bf4 at all.

When they killed the official forums off, it really showed how much they just wanted to move on, for them the vets only represented a small percentage of the possible market share they could achieve, we were expendable.

Repetitive feels refreshing, not once have I been frustrated even though having my ass handed to me on a regular basis for the reason on 10 out of 10 occasions my need to respawn is caused by being outplayed or making mistakes and never because of the game. Think I am just at that point where frustration with bf is superceding fun and at that point it is time to log off. I have had over 900hrs in bf3 though and over 400 in bf4 so not as if has come around quickly, and at some point I may return over the life of the game but right now give me that repetitive any day of the week.
I was in the same boat wink.gif Back then,when I used to care about my stats. I had to stay till the end of a round even If I don't enjoy it and play the game on my highest potential all the time. After my break,I said to myself this thing: "It's a game,do whatever you want" . And so I did - as said before, the results are simply staggering. The game is definetely not on "hardcore" level and you shouldn't try to force it into it. It's a casual game for casual players - and isn't that the main goal of gaming? Atleast for me it is. Why should we always try-hard and push a game into a competitive stage when it's obviously not? Playing a game based on its strenghts is better than trying to make it into something else.
Surely,they are moments when I simply detest the game, but what do I do then? Log off and wait for tomorrow. A new day = new experience thumb.gif I have 140 hours ,only a small portion of them are made using this mindset. MY best hours so far tongue.gif You die few times because of the game, but why do you remember only this moments? Remember the ones where you're beasting, playing with your mates and having a blast. Why do you all remember only the bad things and never emphasize enough on the other moments, those which left a smile on your face?

It's been going on since the 1942 demo. I miss wing riding, plane tossing, and jeep surfing myself. That made for intense ctf matches. Grabbing a flag then having a pilot swoop down and bail out mid flight and catching the plane before it crashes and entering the pilot seat without it slowing down allowed for much more dramatic escapes than hitching a helo ride. Or riding by full tilt on the hood of the jeep or on the wing of the plane as well..but yes det packs in jeeps since forever and a day in the bf series.

If you want a good look at the good old days check out the nbrigade stunt videos from 1942.

Nope.
I got the Veteran pack.
I own BF2, BFBC2, MOH, and BF4.

I read that in a Rambo voice for some reason.

You might as well don't pay attention to it and get used ,because it's not going to change any time soon. rolleyes.gif
And yes,going CS:GO to BF4 makes BF4 feel like a garbage.Competitive GO has 128 tickrate ,compare that to BF4. I need atleast an hour to get used to BF4 after playing CS, but in the great scheme of things, BF4 is a funnier and more entertaining title. CS:GO is awesome indeed, but it's too repetitive,always doing the same thing makes me stay away from it.
To each its own,but that's my 2cents.gif

It isn't really fair to compare BF4 to CS:GO though. Its like comparing apples and oranges. 1 is a competitive shooter and 1 isn't, comp CS:GO is 5 vs.5 only. Not to mention CS:GO being on the source engine and a few other things that make it really an unfair comparison. It takes me a few games of DM in CS:GO to get my aim back but only because you have to be so much more precise in CS. On the netcode thing though I totally agree with you. It isn't going to change much as BF netcode has always been a bit lacking.
