Check out this Battlefield 2042 community survey results on where some members of the playerbase stands in response to the beta.
"Judging by the beta, are you going to buy Battlefield 2042?" = 37.4% (Yes) Perhaps wait for a progress report on launch week on how well It's transitioned from beta product to live service (Bugs Gone-Edition)
80% said the new operator system is a downgrade. There are some other results as well that are not favorable for dice. This will be star wars BF2 all over again with a ton of patches and systems needing to be fixed before the game is playable as it should be. The game should be delayed but it's EA and no way they miss holiday window.
Well, it is a downgrade in terms of playability. It's better on a design perspective, but overall, it makes teamwork less important, and just shuffles up the core gameplay inecessantly.
Even with a delay I dont see EA removing a system that was made for microtransactions.
Lol they just need to slot the BF3 class system in. We know it is already functioning in the game's engine from the leak of the Portal stuff last week. Just put that in and used the operator skins as cosmetics (I mean it would be better to remove them completely but that's wishful thinking).
Those results are a big oof for EA.
Hilarious. Glad BFVs lifespan was cut short for this. That game was well on the way to being pretty great.
Cut short? BFV got new maps for almost two years. That's quite typical for BF games, and actually longer than most of the older ones were supported. BF has never been a F2P style game with unending "seasons." It's always been the launch content and a few sets of map packs.
I wasn't talking about seasons specifically but its funny you mention it because BFV was attempting to do just that. So either you have an impressively short memory or you’re just rambling on and hoping what you say lines up with the facts. BFV had 18 maps in total compared to BF1s 29. The last map released was in April of 2020; thats just a little over a year of support and short of the marketed/promised 2 years. They ended its life-cycle early so they could take those devs and put them on 2042. It is well documented on both official dice/ea sites as well as virtually every gaming news site.
PSN Games Under $20 I'll wait 😜
That's my plan as well.
Game will probably be half off at black Friday a couple weeks after launch.
20?, barely 10 to even consider buying a MP only game, ughhh.
"How would you rate the class/operator system for 2042 as it compares to previous titles?" - A significant downgrade, 62.5 percent. oof
A big reason for me to not the game. I rather have 2 clear Factions with distinxt classes then this operator system. Will wait till that changes or not buy at all.
dice hasn't made a good battlefield game since 4 and it's just getting worse.
oh, are you new to EA? Look at madden...
I’ve completely lost all hope for this franchise.
I just canceled my preorder today…
I canceled my pre-order after that mess. I played two matches and probably saw 50 bugs at least. It needs a lot of work. The operator thing confused me and I just want the old classes back.
Just give us the mechanics of BF4 with bigger maps and more players what is so hard about that.
They were trying to jump onto the hero shooter trend.
I wait til its on gamepass tbh
