    Bombers are a bit OP at the moment. You spawn in just before the infantry so some players are flying direct to enemy spawn at match start and carpet bombing for epic kills. They're going to delay the bombers spawn to fix amongst a few other balancing tweaks.

    Still, even with the issues, it's the smoothest Battlefield launch so far. This game is VERY good as it is now and has the potential to be the best to date.

    My favorite at the moment is the Arras map

    I too like Arras. My favourite is probably Twisted Steel for conquest and large scale, although I love Rotterdam for TDM. So many corners, angles and a lot of height to play with.

    My least favourite is probably Aerodrome and those murder corridors either side of the hangar. They're just deathtraps and it's far too easy for the attackers and nigh on impossible to defend. I don't know how they could tweak them to balance a bit more, but it needs looking at IMO.

    So after about a week of playing on-and-off:
    The game feels great. There's some moments there that make you feel like you're in a war movie. I think the biggest element playing into that is the sound design (which is nuts good).

    Arras and Twisted Steel are favourites.
    Devastation is up there as well, provided you don't get bogged down on C D or E. Those can be deathtraps.
    Least favourite is most definitely Aerodrome, but Hamada is up there too.

    Squad play gets rewarded really well, though it seems half the players haven't latched on to that yet (or ever will). Join a squad that plays the objectives, though, and the game will reward you. Even Defending a point can be great fun with the Defences that can be built and such.

    Weapon customization (the visual part) is a gimmick, of course.
    The "power up" customisations DO work, though I struggle convincing myself to play with one weapon for long enough to get it to Level 4. Not sure that the first weapon being levelled up was a good idea.
    Vehicles are hard to fight against on foot, compared to BF1.

    Grand Operations is rubbish, as has been mentioned in about 1934085701 videos on the internet.

    So the patch with the KE7 nerf, the Medic buff, bomber nerf, as well as the tides of war Overture has been delayed at the 11th hour... oh well... I suppose we farm with the KE-7 some more, then.

    Have they delayed the entire patch or just those elements of it?

    Training range was supposed to come online today, which is where I always hone my piloting 'skills' without noobing a live game... Really need the training range online!!! I'm so bad with some of the a/c at the moment...

    So the map is 5.5km at it's widest point, or roughly Caspian Border 9 times.

    That makes me sad we can't have a 120v120 game of conquest on that map :(

    It's pretty good, but looting still needs some work. Specifically how the loot pops out when you kill another player. Solo is quite campy, squads is a lot more fun but I do find matchmaking to be a bit hit & miss. For example, If I create a squad and add one of my mates joins, it can take a few minutes to match-make but quite often one of us will get booted before we hit the lobby. I little frustrating at times, but I'm sure it'll get fixed.

    EDIT: We're getting duos for the weekend!

    I played solo firestorm and absolutely sucked running around like errr! which way. Running from the ever closing ring of fire virtually on my back and getting shot from behind didn't make sense but aye ho. :eyebrow:.
