I can assure you it is happening right now. Like the previous poster alluded to, anytime someone can consistantly go 70-80 kills without reply then that is something that is very, very wrong and has little to no counter.

People did used to have similar stats in tanks because A) People didn't know how to deal with them and B) people had to co-ordinate to take them down. But now tanks aren't the problem they used to be as people have learnt that just 2 Assault players can easily take a tank down or at least cause it to retreat. Every class in BF1 has access to tools/grenades that can damage a tank.

But planes? Nope, sorry. Not one class has access to one tool or gadget that allows any damage to planes other than shooting them with their gun, which is comparable to shooting a pea-shooter at it. Even if you do damage it, the plane can fly off and repair (in the fucking air), turn 180 degrees and press one button/key and get a insta-kill and a highly likely multi-kill. The only counter on the battlefield that a infantry soldier can use to damage a plane is the AA, which handily enough for 70-80 to nil plane players, can be completely blown off the map and thus be rendered un-usable. You can't even repair the station with the useless repair spanner.

I've never had a problem finding matches on XB1. I have had the search crash on me and get stuck on "Finding Similar Players" or something. Exiting out of the game and reloading it fixed the problem and I would get right into a match.

I have started using the Anti-aircraft Artillery truck. It annoys them because I've had moments where I kill the plane and a minute later that same person is rushing me with an Assault kit. Problem can be is if no teammates are around to give you any support and you are bumrushed by six players but you know. Great vehicle though and one I often use if the planes are problematic.

Maps in BF1 range from good to serviceable. There is not a single vanilla BF1 maps that I strongly dislike.

This DLC on the other hand have some of the worst maps in BF history IMO.

The game is not dead, this has been an issue since DICE/EA implemented Season Passes. No one plays new game modes, and the new maps only get played for a brief period. Outside of that the community is still healthy on all platforms.

4 months later they are still investigating this spawn point lag issue, happens for a couple people on my friendslist but not all, only happens on suez/sinai/giants and only if there are more than 40-ish people in the server, so that rules out this being a misconfiguration at my end i think.

Still tried tons of things with no effect. Sigh.

Can't find a populated game at 10-11am on a saturday (DLC playlist on PC). Something is definitely messed up with their matchmaker and just getting players into lobbies as the stats show there is still over 32k+ people online. Literally waited in a conq game for 20 minutes with less than 10 on each team so the game couldn't start.

I really think they are running into the issue of having too many playlists that split up the playerbase into little segments and that will only get worse as more DLC comes out.

Oh my god this bullshit. You can't whine about it having no counter when literally every primary weapon in the game can destroy one. Just shoot the fucking thing, it's not difficult, tell your squad to concentrate fire on it and it's destroyed within seconds.

...Don't use the playlist? Use the server browser man, I have no idea why you'd sit in an empty lobby for 20 minutes rather than just finding a full server.

I checked the server browser too, filtered DLC maps and conquest and it was full of 0 player servers. Coulda been something screwed up during that time, I will check again later.

The problem with making planes less vulnerable to infantry and vice versa is that it cages off plane gameplay even more. When planes have little to contribute to the ground game, their use becomes boring.

Do the DLC maps show up in a normal Conquest rotation, or are they walled off behind a separate playlist entirely?

Also, I think the DLC gave us a "nighttime" version of Argonne Forest, unless my TV is miscalibrated. 🤔

I don't think so. There are some non-official servers where the rotation includes all maps though.

I guess it's not really nighttime, but everything gets super desaturated, and the spawn screen gets really dark.

I only noticed it after the They Shall Not Pass DLC, so it's probably something they introduced during that patch.

So will it only ever be available to premium or will non-premium be able to buy it later? It sucks that you have to choose between playing original maps and DLC maps and not having them all in the rotation on a single server, no idea how this will fit in a map rotation.

Hit level 99 the other day. Estimated time to level up is over 3000 minutes. I have 15 squad boosts left but I doubt that will even be enough. Need more double XP weekends. The ribbons and increase in medal XP rewards is good though.

Should just refund season pass holders and release maps for free. DLC seems to have killed this game for many people, those without stop playing because no new content, those with stop because their friends don't have it.

Least Battlefront II making it right. Wonder if the BF1 drops in player count caused it.

EA have walked back the statement that there would be no season pass though. Now it's just 'we'll see'. Still looking forward to it though.

I do wish there were quickmatch servers with all maps mixed in. They should make all maps free and just the new weapons/vehicles/level cap/medals etc as DLC so everyone can at least keep playing together.

Any word about DICE finally fixing Giant's Shadow on Rush mode? It's pretty fucked at the moment. You either get held at the first point or you steamroll to whole thing in 5 minutes. I've never played a match on it that was a decent fight. The first point is so badly designed that all the defenders can hide in the buildings and the small hills and just pick off the attackers as they have to come down the hill with no cover.

They should ignore point 1, start the map at point 2 and put an extra point after the zeplin in the rail yard.

Also, in defence of Fao Fortress and Suez, they suck as conquest maps, but I like them as rush maps, they're actually quite fun.

If maps are free, you can count on it. People arent gonna buy premium for Battlefield1 if Battlefront2 has free maps.

I don't get it, get a far more powerful heavy tank while also carrying teammates. If you don't get that initial push on Suez your team is screwed.

Suez should have vehicle spawns at the very least a little more often. Every time I play Amiens whenever I spawn at main spawn point I'm greeted with a vehicle to help break enemy line if we're pushed back
