    I only play conquest and a bit of breakthrough myself personally:

    Maps I play the most:

    Panzerstrom
    Al Sundan
    Arras
    Twisted Steel
    Devastation
    Aerodrome
    Rotterdam

    Maps I dont mind

    Hamada
    Mercury
    Narvik

    Maps I tend to skip

    Fjell 652
    Marita

    I may buy this. I love what EA has been doing with Star Wars recently. Big battles+fantastic graphics? Sign me up.

    I assume everyone is in agreement that Battlefield V is getting better and better.

    Its really good.

    I would highly recommend it as what you get with the game in terms of maps/weapons/vehicles, destructible environment, quality of play etc far exceeds the monetary value that you will pay.

    I’m also mainly a conquest player.. but I also gravitate towards squad conquest. It can get pretty intense. Otherwise, I lean Mostly towards the same maps:

    Arras. Twisted steel. Devastation. Mercury. Navik.

    everything else I like fine depending on my mood and how well my squad plays.

    some maps like hamada and especially aerodrome could use some reworking to make them excellent maps in my opinion.

    haven’t played the latest three maps to make judgement.

    Conquest is a PITA with how large the maps are. Seeing smaller venues which get unlocked later, like Breakthrough, is my new interest now. Everyone just swarming B during the 2nd stage of Operation Underground, trying to get to the overlook, that's good fun

    i feel ya- that’s why I lean on squad conquest when I’m looking for something a little more focused and competitive. My problem with game modes like breakthrough is that there are too many players on each team. It feels like it takes too long to make any progress and that no one individual is making any kind of meaningful difference. Rush mitigated my complaints a bit, but it’s limited time only.

    Pc player here. REchris96


    Battlefield is Renown for it’s wide open 32v32 conquest game mode. Capture and hold strategic points on map. Destructible environments. Vehicles. Squad focused gameplay. It’s a beautiful thing.

    Word. I've played battlefield 4. Is that one set inWW1? Regardless, I used to rock conquest all the time. I wasnt sure if they had a new game mode.

    My wife just had a kid, and I have a month of paid family leave, so I'm going to be rocking this game a lot.

    I actually got the game when I bought my graphics card, so I got it for free. Finally installed it. Going to try it. Is it better in terms of being able to jump in and play compared to BF1? Honestly, I really was not a fan of the feel of BF1, but I loved BF2, BC2, BF3 and BF4.

    It's hard to say.. I think if you've played the past BF game and then immediate go into BFV, you'll notice that they've increased the movement spend significantly. It's almost to the point that i'm so use to it now that when I switch back, the older games feel.. slow. But to me, movement is a highlight of BFV. The core mechanics haven't changed much.. but they've added things like being able to build your own cover and being able to revive your squamates regardless of your class. All good stuff.

    I'm trying to like this game but there's a lot of camping. Not a fan of that at all. It is beautiful tho. Damn

    Which mode?

    Camping/defending is pretty relevant to certain game modes. In breakthrough the defenders will find the most advantageous spot to halt your advance to flag capturing. It makes more sense to be in a position of superior firepower to dwindle down the other teams ticker. Conquest usually a few players will stay behind to try to defend captured objectives. I would say this is probably the least campiest bf I have played so far but its definitely not like COD where people just run around wildly

    I haven't played the team deathmatch so I'm unsure of how players play in that mode.

    I'm starting to enjoy the game more. I'm terrible at it, tho. What guns do you all prefer for each class? I'm using assault right now.

    Is the EA server breaking down a common issue? Mine is down, so I checked online to see if anyone else was having the issue, and plenty of people are. I then noticed this seems to happen about once a week, though I dont know the severity. They've been down for about 2 hours so far.

    Hasn't really been an issue since I bought the game. (I never buy big titles till at least 4-5 months + after release). But today's I think is significant. Hopefully it's up and running tonight.

    Alot depends on the map and what role you want to play for your team or on the battlefield. Large maps with lots of vehicles I usually run an assualt class with a scoped semi-auto rifle like the gewehr 43 and then c4 and a anti tank RPG. Gives you a decent range of accurate fire on open maps where there isn't a ton of close quarter fighting. I use the other stuff to take down tanks/vehicles.

    Close quarter maps like the subway one for assualt class I run a shotgun (support class) or the stg44. The nice thing about the stg44 is it can go from full auto for those close combat situations and then you can switch it to semi auto for more controlled shots.

    On the engineer/support class I use the Bren gun and not much else.

    Sniper class the zh-29 is a work horse. Guaranteed 2 shot kills and it cYcles very fast with little kick.

    Medic I have just been using whatever. Not a huge fan of the smgs

    Frustrated at this game because I truly suck. I rarely ever play first person shooters. That, plus the fact I dont know the maps well, and I just get murdered all the time. Most of the time I dont even see it coming. It sucks, because the game itself seems cool, but the learning curve for someone like me may turn me off from it completely.

    Play medic and be the support guy while you learn the maps. It's fun!

    Played some Rush yesterday, and did much better. It's a bit more...straightforward.

    I'm getting better. I usually finish in the top-20 now! How do people finish with a k/d of 10-1? ****s crazy.

    Also, any advice on how to escape other pilots? Do I need to upgrade my plane before I have a chance? Seems I get shot down every time someone gets behind me. I use the third unlockable plane, which is pretty quick and maneuverable. I'd love to use the bomber, but it's just too damn slow.
