Looks even more amazing with the HUD turned off.
Soooo good. The rain shader applied to the weapons is sex!
Holy balls, that looks amazing.
That's how hardcore should be, just give me the ability to pull up a handheld compass and map and I'm golden.
Well also give me the ability to limit classes per team and squad and then I'm golden-golden
Looks fantastic. Sandstorm during MP will be insane
I'll live with it as long as it adds to game.
The hurricane on the windmill island was great, the snowstorm was ok. I guess it's just the brown of the sandstorm that always bums me out
Do bolt actions not exist in this game except for sniper rifles? I swear I saw one bolt action rifle in the trailer and it was going rapid fire (semi auto maybe).
It feels like they (DICE) are caving to CoD gameplay and it's just going to be a run and gun fest. Why not bring back the old days of a scout spotting for artillery and artillery able to blast an area? I feel like this could end up being a let down.
I doubt it'll be run and gun as COD, but will still be close to BF4. If you're really looking for a semi-realistic portrayal of WWI, check out Verdun.
If y'all signed up for the Battlefield Insider, beta starts tomorrow instead of Wednesday. Word got out beta is only open till September 8th as well.
Just got my e-mail invite...this will compete with my MBA schoolwork and college football, which is no beuno...for school.
I'm super slammed but am gonna be on PS4 tonight if anyone wants to play.
Played for a few hours tonight...so far I have no complaints. They seem to have fixed or improved on some of my last major gripes. It's beautiful and fun, the two things a game should be.
For those who didn't get teir invites yet, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. Today was for EA Insider's (i.e. people who signed up for the newsletter) only.

Played tonight for a bit myself. The graphics are awesome and the game flow feels pretty damn good even though it's just one map. It's gonna take a bit to get used to coming from BF4 that's for sure, and getting a hang of driving those slow ass planes and tanks. So far I've enjoyed playing it but one map can get pretty monotonous. I'm definitely buying the preorder.
Played a bit this morning. The game looks fantastic and the weapons are better than what I thought they'd be. That being said, the map is a sniper's dream as so much open space you have to cross.
Riding the death train is great, highly recommend at least one death on it.
$#@!ing snipers! Went into a Rush match last night and out of 16 players on my team, 12 of them were snipers. These guys aren't even sniping either, just running around and shooting people like it's an assault rifle with a scope. Other than that, I was enjoying the game, but man was I getting my ass handed to me unless I was in a vehicle. Seems like you spawn in Conquest and you have about 5 seconds to get your bearings and get behind something because there's at least 3 or 4 snipers waiting for people to spawn since they spawn you right in the middle of no where with no cover. Definitely need to get used to using iron sights again as well.
Oh, btw, if you guys are trying to login and are getting the "failed to connect to EA online" message, it's because some wannabe hacker group DDOS'd the EA servers.
I'm telling you, the day they put caps on classes will be a joyous day.
I just got my first session in and I like the map a lot more than most. Started out 14-1 in my first game without sniping. Did they already patch horses? I was seeing people go on rampages with them yesterday but it was instant death every time I got on one.

Surgical with that bitch
Watching that video, I didn't realize you could kill people inside tanks with the syringe...lol...I wonder if they patched it yet?
Yeah I saw that syringe vehicle glitch. Pretty funny.
Servers are back up...kind of. Matchmaking is not working, but joining by game browser works
Not in a party it doesn't. Servers still getting hammered, after trying about 40 different servers, we finally got in one with a queue....82 in line!
Feel free to add gpb42 if you want to squad up!
Little bastards just took down the servers again...for a few there were like 6 servers available with queue lines of like 60+ people, but now I'm getting the "failed to connect to ea online" message again. Don't leave the server if you don't have to, and don't restart the game or you can't get back in.
$#@! was all messed up, spawning without weapons unless you had unlocked one, so it was pretty dumb.
Gonna take a break on this until maybe tomorrow hopefully things stabilize.
Yea, things came up around 9-9:30 last night. Finally got a full game in. Tanks and snipers are OP on that conquest map. I think they will tone down that secondary shot on the tank, range seems a touch long for one shot kills on people.
EA makes some wonderful games but their servers/connections/matchmaking always seems to make me hate EA games.
It's a simple fix:
# Get up-to-date list (in .htaccess format) from http://www.wizcrafts.net/chinese-blocklist.html
# China IP Address Blocks
deny from ...
There are currently 7589 IP blocks that originate in China. Just block all of that and most of the DDOS will go away. Not all of it, but most.

Had another great play session last night with some friends. Apparently some 13 year old wannabe hackers (ddosing is not hacking) were claiming responsibility on twitter. This isn't EA's first rodeo, you'd think they would expect and account for this earlier.
Anyone else just lose connection to EA servers? Damned lizard squad.
Playstation Network was down, EA servers got DDOS'd. Not a good rollout.
Interesting that so many of you are having issues with sniping... Is that on PC?
I've played close to 30 rounds on PS4 and have yet to encounter a sniper dominated match.
Those of you thinking the planes are slow should check out the attack/assault plane... Thing is nimble as $#@!!
Pain Train = God Tier
^Not having an issue with snipers either. Always be moving and PTFO and they won't get you. I'm having a lot more fun and success flying compared to BF3 and 4. It's a lot easier to line up gun runs when you're not flying 700mph. Overall this game is already running smoother than BF4 was at launch.
