    Guess those Stingers canīt lock on what you consider OP choppers. Go cry someplace else you NOOOOOOOB... I sugest CoDīs and/or BattleFlop1 arenas.

    Numbers on Battlefrontīs beta are pretty much representative of what you can conclude over BF1... Comparing it to Battlefield4 is just sad.

    Yesterday I was playing Giants of Karelia, Operation Whiteout and Dragon Valley and couldnīt help to stop and just look around - the vast maps, the action going on air and land, the veihcleīs setpieces... just wonderful. No way Iīm letting that go over to the crumpled arenas, the simpleton gameplay, the lack of hardware and gadgets.

    Have fun with your cheese burguer. Iīll stick to fillet mignon.

    Indeed a nice looking game - 4K with all setting maxed out except for sampled AA = 55 FPS on a GTX 1080. Regarding gameplay and story is kinda meeehh. All the shooting setpieces are a bit out of place. The game is filled with clichés and brings notheing new to the scene. Had more fun with Mad Max. Reply -3

  • Agente_Silva 31/08/2016

    @krOnicLTD

    What I meant is you can have a lock 60 FPS in 4K with Very High to Ultra settings today (considering you disable any sampled AA and instead use the post processing). Recently in BF4 I framecapped my FPS and itīs locked at 60...

    @krOnicLTD

    Dude, you do not have a 4K monitor and you donīt know what you are talking about. Your arguments are based on benchmarks you see on youtube, all of them with sampled anti-aliasing. Try to find a comparison vídeo between post process and sampled AA 4K gaming and youīll see fps going above 60 fps no problem. There are absolutely no visual diferences.

    The immediate difference you see playing in 4K are the textures (materials such as wood, metal, cloth, stone just seem to... I canīt explain, they seem to pop out of the monitor), lightning/reflections are super soft... AC unity is impressive(specially when you get in palaces such as Versailles, the wooden floors, the ceiling lamps, the ceiling paintings).

    @nuttyjawa

    Exactly what I wanted to say, again... @4K (or in any other resolution in fact) youīll be extremly fine with any post processing(FXAA, SMAA). Some folks here talk a lot without having the daily experience of 4K on a 40" monitor on Ultra/Very High settings like I have played every game since I purchased my Phillips+1080 Strix. AC Unity never ever dipped below 55 FPS on crowded areas, Battlefield4 all Ultra; HBAO never dips below 70 in Dragon Valley (long drawdistances) and can easily go above 100 fps in a lot of maps, Mad Max with max settings never dips below 70, Battlefield1 (wich is an ABSOLUTE FLOP) with auto settings goes all ultra, with TAA and does between 73 and 55 (from what I managed to see since the FPS numbers are very small :P).

    Itīs a FLOP... Battlefront in WW1 skin. Prepare for circle jerk... map scale as been reduced again, clocked matches are simpply pathetic. There were other issues but maybe itīs a beta thing... no toggle ADS, stealing enemy veihcles results in them dissapearing while youīre driving away.

    Not buying...

  • Battlefield 4 just got a huge makeover on console

  • Agente_Silva 29/08/2016

    @Bush_Killa-73

    Very nicely pointed but, in my opinion, very relative as well. Comparing pre BFBC titles (leaving pratically BF2 to the reference) will leave a huge contrast or gap on the table. After BF2 and itīs expansions none was even similar. BF3 clearly changed the tide with smaller maps and frenetic skirmishes. Of course you would have that in BF2 sometimes, in more contested flags with important hardware (AAīs; choppers) but the majority of the game had a much more "relaxed" scope... I think there is a neglected fact in your valuable post - the game isnīt developed just by developers and gaming enthusiasts. Electronic Arts is in the stockmarket and profit is weighting in new BFs decisions (donīt want to sound as a "corporate hater") but that is a fact - and itīs playing a bigger role in game development, more than we imagine I think. It is most obviuos that DICE is nerfing Battlefield to make it more simple and easier to pickup than previous titles. More, the amount of technical support they had to put on BF4 (in the game itself and on servers) wasnīt free of charge - that mustīve taken a big big tole on EA/DICE. This time they probably wonīt afford that amount of resources and therefore they are making the game with less gadgets, less veihcles and simpler server interaction (no locks, no tugs, no levolution). The WorldWar1 theme seems strongly like the perfect solution coming out of a board reunion up in the glass tower (now I sound like na anti-corporate freak x)) that blends all convenient aspects - changing a worn theme (modern warfare), reducing gadgets and veihcles (because thatīs how it was at that time) and claiming boldness by going "back to basics".

    I really want to try the Beta to either change my opinion or consolidate my fears.

    @Bush_Killa-73

    You realize what youīre saying doesnīt make any sense at all... I mean, BF1 will be the absolute opposite of BF4 (or else it would be called BF5 - wich was exactly what I wanted).

    edit: people bringing the "disastrous BF4 launch" argument is well representative of how volatile casual players are. They will never stay long enough to see the game improving. I know they are buyers in the same way and probably thatīs all that matters. Donīt know how important for company value is to have logged in players every day but casuals are not contributing in any way for that - still DICE is turning BF into a shallow puddle so that babies donīt drown.

    @Eaton_Corvinus

    Amen... BF3 was clearly the melting pot for BFBC and BF2. I do really miss the game pace of BF2. I loved those "pause" moments when you drove to the next flag like in Fushee Pass, Dragon Valley, Kubra Dam... picking people up to help you cap the flag... the frenetic honking before a jet run would come by... aigh...

    I also have a 40" 60 hz display - Phillips. Despite the screen size, edges are pretty soft. Much much better than my former Eyefinity display setup.

    With gaming preset it ramps to 1890 MHz :) I had a really bad experience with ASUS R9280X DCUII with MASSIVE artifacts and freakin rainbows :P this time I went for a not so OCīed ASUS card.

    @VEGA

    Itīs sad to see a true factual opinion being negged. Thing is VEGA is right - Aftermarketīs are just offering a better cooling solution. Overclock wise, Founder Edition is pulling more MHz than most partner cards (quoting JayTwoCents :P). I waited for the ASUS Strix (non OC please) because I feel more comfortable running at 63šc during 8 hours than rather tahn 80šc.

    In my opinion overclocking is overrated - last benchmark I saw was from the massive ZOTAC card, triple slot and all the beef = +5 to 8 FPS. Really?! for almost double the power draw?

    In the end of the day I rather look at beatiful graphics silk smooth, instead of looking at any benchmark tool.

    I wonder how many of you illuminatis are actually running a 1080@4K. I know I am and I can tell for sure GTX1080 is TOTALLY capable of running 4K with Ultra settings. I always felt including SMAA/TXAA/MSAA or any other kinf of AA (execept post processing)in benchmarks was somehow misleading gamers. As expected, when I installed my card, set everything Ultra and no SMAAA/SSAA/MSAA, ran BF4 between 70 and 120 FPS. Visually if you turn on any of those AA techniques at 4K is BARELY visible, so yeah... you can keep counting posts and ratings, because itīs the only purpose for most people here.

    Iīm living the 4K dream.

    I just installed my ASUS Strix GTX1080 yesterday :)

    Just a quick performance comparison:

    With R9280X Crossfire in BF4 @ 3840x2160 (4K) with High Settings; no AA; Ambient Oclusion SSAO, I was doing 38 FPS (Caspian Border-dense vegetation).

    GTX1080 does 160 o_0 LOL.

    Ramped everything Ultra; no AA; Ambient Occlusion SSAO and Iīm at 120 FPS :)

  • Let's look at some of the history behind Battlefield 1

  • Agente_Silva 29/06/2016

    @VibratingDonkey

    Balancing... DICE are so obssessed with it that turns some BF moments into RIDICULOUS circus acting. Example: AA shooting at infantry - in normal circumstances a couple of shots should pulverize any human body, I think... in BF4 itīs not quite like that (a chance of running away is given, even after taking some good hits even at the right distance). Tanks shells to infantry - same as AA. Sub-machine guns at distance - will kill you, itīs just a matter of how many bullets enemy shots. Stinger lock distance - a whole map. All for the sake of rock-paper-scissor.

    Itīs perfectly clear DICE doesnīt want leets to dominate noobs, scaring them away from their game, steering like dumb sheeps to CoD but... skill matters, how well you know the map and its dinamic matters (a lot) and people need to LEARN THE GAME.

    My main concern about BF1 is itīs slowly turning into that circle jerk we all love to hate.
