    Tried it for a few hours with gamepass and what a trainwreck. Movement feels floaty, netcode is still bad, too many vehicles on a map with most of them being way too strong. Why can't we go back to Bad Company 2 ?

    The people who made those have left Dice, years ago.
    The people that are there don't know how to make a good Battlefield game.
    Just consider that the director for Battlefield, previously worked at king, making Candy Crush.

    Does anyone think they can bring it back from the BRINK or is it too late for that?

    Add the recent first detections for cheats on top and we'll have <20% remaining.

    Honestly kinda doubt it. They need to fix one insane amount of stuff, rebalance most stuff. Adjust maps, add more modes. It could happen but not anytime soon. Seems like a CP2077 deal to me.
    Check back after one year and see if it changed.

    fyi. Haven't touched CP2077 since the day it first released and probably won't for another half a year when they fixed all stuff and bring the first DLC.

    You guys are talking about a large corp. They don't care about creating a fun game, they are not concerned about a quality product. So long as it turns a sizeable profit that is all that matters. So if they can spend little resources creating garbage, fool consumers with marketing and sell it to enough folks that's all that matters. And since this is top 10 on steam I am assuming they succeeded.

    Why would you expect any different?

    People have passion and morals. Corporations do not at this point.

    THis is what happen when games are released when mangment want it released and not when dev's say it ready. did no learn from CDprojket?
    No nothing was learned and but devs will be one blamed


    All games now are pretty much released before they ready and then PATCH later which is habit the industry needs to break.

    If you look at purely steam the engagement has dropped to nearly 80% loss.
    i've switched back to older bf's now, the servers for bf4 have started to repopulate as well

    This is incorrect, NW took close to 2 months, to lose about 90% of its active player base. Which is expected as the game has no real end game content.

    BF2042 on the other hand...less than 2 weeks.

    i played two maps and got a refund on steam, i think this is even worse than cyberpunk. game was doa without a br, they really nailed it to be honest, couldnt have been worse, no classic mode like tdm, bad graphics, bad performance, bad gameplay

    As expected , it is the flop of the year. Cheaters already took over the game lol , i guess they will instakill themselfs at the same time all of them as soon as they pop in the maps :D

    Multiplayer games seem to be really flopping latly.

    EDIT: Looks at Cyberpunk.

    I can't really understand cheating in multiplayer game , don't see fun in that. Its against whole idea of gaming . Probably 8-12yo raging kids or something ....

    I refuse to buy EA/Acitvision/Ubisoft games anymore the trailers for this looked "ok" and they had a 10 hour trial for $6.99 with ea play on steam so i gave it a shot i played 15 mins of the intro game alt f4'd the game i left a negative review then requested a refund for my $6.99 through steam which was granted

    Seeing EA games fail makes me happy they butchered all my childhood favourite games
