    I'd love a no scope, bolt action rifles only mode. That would be my favourite.

    It's a total mess at the moment but I love it. I might wait to see how launch goes as I've only just got into bf1. Definitely preferred V though..

    Gunplay, brilliant. Changes to Conquest scoring, brilliant. Maps, brilliant. No spotting, brilliant. Infantry focused Beta, brilliant. Class options, great. Variety of weapons on offer, for a beta, surprisingly rich. No premium pass and split player base, brilliant. Attrition, great, but maybe one more magazine? TTK could do with being 1 bullet /15Č slower IMO.

    Players not reviving, still shit. Janky spawns/revives, crap. Weapon unlock system is disappointing - would prefer attachments that you need to balance to 'tune' your gun, as opposed to what is just a linear 'improve gun' path. Sounds still need work - several occasions l had other players firing their gun right next to me and couldn't hear a thing. Could do with some real time feedback about his low your health is - attrition and the med pack system is great, but I've forgotten to self heal countless times because l didn't realise my health was so low.

    That's just about all l can recall. Overall, I've really enjoyed it. I struggled to find the fun and joy in BF1, but the gunplay alone in this has me hooked into the gameplay loop. More please.

    I liked it. I'm glad I don't have to waste time chasing other support class players trying to get them to drop ammo boxes (this has pissed me off since I started playing Bad Company on PS3 in 2008 - 10 fucking years).

    One thing I liked in BF Hardline was that you can take ammo from any support team mate, although you still had to chase when they were on the move. Having ammo caches around the place is a good idea.

    Sniping is also improving with every game. Sniping in BF4 was shit, pretty good in Hardline (although I have videos in the shooting range where bullets from a particular sniper rifle fail to register) and better in BF1. I was relatively happy with it in this beta, although ranging seems to be an unlockable perk. I don't remember if it is per weapon or at class level.

    Battlefield 1.5 generally. Nice and polished gfx, engine and mobility, better use of vehicles and pacing but a generally a similar game. UI still modern and awful with that minimal feel, too many icons and didn't like the general style of it, felt a bit sterile, kind of like a new build house.

    Doesn't warrant a full price purchase from me, may pick it up once a couple of expansions are out, preowned for a bit of a saving.

    @Derblington still at dice? If so please feedback that please please please can the V maps nerf the small dick snipers? Just went back to 1 after playing V beta and I'd almost forgotten the scout class fucking mess that bf1 is. Everyone who isn't a scout thinks they are c**ts so why make them so good at pissing the majority off????

    God I hope it's not as bad. Last night was so annoying. Most snipers are a fucking waste of space for the team. The maps on bf1 as well often were perfect for them and then add to that the lack of counter options you have against them. Was never an issue in BF4.

    I think Attrition will negate some of the inherent issues with Recon. You don't spawn with much ammo, so you're going to have to move around the map to keep killing. I played quite a bit of Recon during the Beta and you just can't sit in one spot. You miss more shots than you hit and even when you do hit a shot, you're not making headshots every time, so you're going to go through your limited ammo. Also, you only get a single flare per ammo restock, and the flares don't last that long either, so be effective and get some kills, you simply HAVE to resupply/move around the map. Hopefully that'll be enough to stop the traditional, find high ground 500 meters from the objective and become the shadows, mentality of most snipers.

    Don't understand the hate for a BF BR. If the mode's good, plays well, it's free and there's no reason to play it unless you want to, where's the issue?

    You call it insightful commentary, I call it the amazing exploits of a war hero relayed to us mere mortals through the Ps4 Share button.

    If you like history and specifically Ww2 history, the fellow who did the EXCELLENT Great War series is now doing a new series for WW2 in "real time".

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP1AejCL4DA7jYkZAELRhHQ

    For those who don't know, the Great War channel follows the events of the current week 100 years ago of the entire first world war. It's absolutely brilliant and really popular. There's shows about the uniforms, tactics, weaponry, bio-specials, visits to old battlefields in the Alps and loads more.

    The reason I bring it up is that the presenter Indy Neidell had worked as an advisor with DICE on BF1 and provided all the facts on the load screens (e.g. soy sausages invented by the future German chancellor etc. etc.) He also gets a credit for voice over announcers on Battlefront 2!

    I've been watching the Great War in tandem with my obsession with BF1 and found it very interesting so have high hopes for this channel also.

    Hope someone here likes it as much as I have :)
