I'm thinking of getting it.

Do you like it?

Many local servers?

I read the server browser is crap but game is good?

Mac from WAB says spawns are in the middle of the action like in SWBF?

Where's the local AU/NZ BF community now? Wasn't it this: anzacgamers? The link won't open for me. OR maybe it was here on Ausgamers? Ausbattlefield or something?


PS: I played 1942, BF2, and BF3 in team ladders etc.. don't think I played BF4.

The graphics are good but the gameplay is abit whatever. You kind of just zerg to cap points and try to do it faster than the other team. No real strategy involved.
DICE Games have fallen a long way since BF1942 where there used to be a decent competitive scene, if you're into organised team gameplay that is.

Yah I like organised ladder matches, but I can't see much evidence of it, and can't find my old BF 1942, 2 and 3 team.

Due for a new FPS, so I'm going to get it. Then if I like it, I'll get the gaming rig a new graphics card, and a reformat for xmas.

I started playing it again the other night. It's good to see the new maps. I play conquest and there were about 2-3 full servers last night. There used to be more but I guess people have gone on to play other newer games.

Been playing. Level 8.

My first online match I rode up on a horse and picked up a flame thrower and toasted some guy who wanted to report me for hacking.

Also, I'm getting my arse handed to me in K:D ratio but seem to be getting 1/2 way up scoreboard from just doing stuff.

And, how to screenshot? I have to study up on this game, looks worth it.

Cheers for the recommendation to get game. I like it. It's hard.

I am not sure if Bf1 has the ability to take screenshots natively. You could use FRAPS or some other screenshot program to take screenshots and/or video.

MSI Afterburner is used for overlocking but has screenshot and video capture features too. is something I never heard of but you could try it.

I'm going to read up console commands and see if key binds can be done in cfg files etc. I got something like Fraps. I'll need the console commands for show_fps etc. Got some research to do. Also, going to hook up joystick for the planes, they are fun. Was bailing from passenger seat, and chuting in to capture flags last night. Vehicles are fun too, but external view on them would help me go more radical. The horses are good. Level 16 now.

I'll be reading this:

Using this thread as my little resource for BF1.

There is some talk about.. if you alter a cfg, when joining multiplayer server it wipes changes. More at 11.

Can we just agree that 'Battlefield 1' is a dumb as hell name for this game? When someone says 'Battlefield 1', I think Battlefield 1942. Because that's what "Battlefield 1" is to me.

Yeah, DICE need to get their s*** sorted out. Should have been called Battlefield 1917 or Battlefield The Great War.

I have been playing BF1 a lot the past week. It's good but I don't like relying on the loot boxes just to get a nice skin for my weapons. The new DLC is out tomorrow I think too.

It's BF 5 eh? We don't really include that futuristic one between 2 and 3?

Great game. Looking at a new card... this guy has convinced me to do it:

"Teste Battlefield 1 Multiplayer - GTX 1070 Ti Founders 8 GB / Full HD e 2.5K / Ultra 60 - PT-BR"
