You guys all jumping ship to BF1 or still plan on playing 4? I'm thinking about passing on BF1, but we'll see how extra funds are.

I'll be on BF1 from day 1. I will likely just buy the Origin package including Premium.

I have to say, I haven't been this excited about a BF game for a while. Something about the "fresh" theme, hearing the official soundtrack and seeing the gameplay... damn i'm hyped.

I liked BF4, but it got a bit too... confusing. All gadgets, auto locking weapons, mobile anti air etc... I felt distracted from the original rock, paper, scissors concept of Battlefield. I feel BF1 has a much greater potential to repeat the game mechanics that made people fall in love with 1942, Vietnam and BF2.

I've been playing since the LAN days of 1942, Desert Combat mod, Battlegroup etc... and I feel as excited as I was then

I really liked all the gadgets and weaponry in Battlefield 4. I know a lot of the guns struggled to be different than others, but they did a good job considering. If you haven't played Battlefield 1 yet I'd recommend trying it out before you pull the trigger on the purchase. I'm not saying you won't love it, but my time with the alpha made me a little less excited. It could be just me, but there are so many things I feel like the game took a step back in fun factor at the cost of going back in time. My quick examples would be the tanks, and the air planes in the gunner seats. The extremely limited view really ruined those experiences for me personal, and I'm not sure the repair system is as good for team play as previous Battlefield games.

I'll see how the beta is but at this point I'm not super thrilled, game looks and plays great over all, but I think I might find myself wishing I was playing BF4 in the end.

I kinda wish I was playing a game with similar mechanics to that of BF2 and earlier than BF4!

So it'll be interesting to see what I make of it. I pre-ordered anyway, so we'll see what happens in the beta.

I am interested to see what the Beta looks like, I believe I did everything needed to get access to it, but that's still a few days away if I recall correctly.

I have never played a BF game from launch, but might give this one a go since I don't have anything else really lined up to try first. It will be good to get in from the beginning I think instead of joining much later after everyone already knows the maps and weapons so well.

I do have a soft spot for TV missiles (especially from 2142) and other gadgets that will be hard to play without, but I also welcome the freshness of going back in time a bit.

I'll try the beta when it opens on the 31st. If it's good enough I'll probably pre-order it as much as I hate to put money in EAs pocket. HC BF4 servers are already lacking though, it's going to be a ghost town when 1 hits.

Also today I finally got a 1k+ headshot but I forgot to screenshot it. frown.gif
Previous was 697, 1030 today on Silk Road. I had 5 or 6 1k+ kills on Nansha Strike yesterday but never managed a headshot.

Those were the days that's for sure.

I'm still not a fan of the color in BF1 but you can't really deny the graphics are incredible. Between Squad, BF1 Beta, and Star Citizen my weekend is looking a wee bit full. Red Bull stocked up. Check.

The most important thing not talked about yet is the higher tick rate. How does 60hz feel now compared to 30hz? Has anyone done a network recording of the improvement in bf1 yet?

Tick rate was increased in BF4 also.

There are some issues i've noticed in BF1 where hits don't register, but it seems like a bug as it's always after spawn, rather than being something that occurs all round.

I realize that. I often play on 40hz servers finding the 60hz ones to laggy. The difference I want to believe is that bf1 is built for 60hz and not patched up to it like bf4 was.
