    I guess I'll need to try out the new BF4 menus. Though I've been playing only bf1 since it came out...

    I've been playing a lot of the new Frontline mode and it's incredibly frustrating but also somehow fun. The matches can go on far too long, I lost one tonight that was 86 minutes, and there really needs to be a 60 minute max overall time that rewards the team holding the most objective points the win. However, the push pull of capturing and losing points working your way to the opponent base or defending the from reaching yourBFs can be fun. On all of the maps there are points that will get traded back and forth with no progress past them 5-10 times on longer matches. I'm probably not going to play it much after it launches for non-premium members because the matches are just too damn long and I'm honestly not having as much fun as I do in Conquest. I'm really only playing it now because of stacking XP bonuses that can lead to some insane scores at the end. I've had matches where I earned well over 200,000 points for a win, and longer matches (45-90 minutes) are usually 125,000-150,000 points when losing.

    FYI, the Soissons maps has 5 objective points where I think all of the others are 3, and all of the insanely long matches have been on that map. Matches on the other maps are typically in the 20-60 minute range, but averaging about 30-40 minutes. Basically, if you're not in the mood for a 90 minute match back out of any matches on Soissons.

    My one and only try of Frontlines was on Soissons. The back and forth over the middle 3 points for over an hour seemed so appropriate for a ww1 based game.

    Spent the weekend playing front lines and I haven't had a single super long match, which is lame because I was kinda hoping to get a few after reading everything here about then. Even on Soissons, the games didn't go past 40 minutes or so which is pretty standard for Conquest and much shorter than Operations.

    Speaking of operations, I've only done the infantry focused one that starts in Verdun Heights but I love it so far. The fires, pitted landscape and mud just feel so perfectly WW1. If anyone wants to add me on PC my origin name is the same as here.

    It could be that people are finally figuring out that you need to play very aggressively in Frontlines for the matches to go quickly. Pushing forward as a group and making smart use of vehicles (on maps that have them) can really create some momentum that can be very hard to defend against if the other team isn't as aggressive.

    Also maybe a link to the general PA discord that has bunches of active people before someone makes yet another game specific discord for this game that dies in a day like all the others. Lots of people in the current general PA discord play BF1 regularly, too.

    So I did not care for the frontlines game mode. It's an odd mix of rush/conquest and the games or really far too long. Just as you make progress, the timer resets for you to go recapture the point again. Was not a fan.

    I am happy, however, that they added ribbons back in because medals are still jacked for me. (one set shows on the loading screen only to be overlaid by another set after a few seconds)

    I do like this game, but man I just don't play enough to be competitive against some of the people already at rank 100. I still like it though. Support/Assault fo-evah.

    Anyone know if the "Kill 15 in one round with the 1909 Telescopic" to get the Chauchat Telescopic is bugged? I absolutely killed fifteen dudes in a round, which was frustrating and tedious given how awful that gun is, but it didn't check it off on my list.

    Medal tracking progress is often bugged. Annoyingly so. Sometimes if you just restart the game it'll update with the correct progress, and sometimes the game just bugs out and you have to try doing the step all over again.

    A few months I was pretty missed when it didn't correctly track a 20 kills in a round final step that I finished just before medals reset. Now I regularly get 20+ kills per round but that medal has yet to cycle through again for me.

    Not the medal, the unlock challenge for the Chauchat Telescopic.

    I'd avoid it, nothing but a buggy mess so far and it's a 3gb update for a whole bunch of nothing....it actually takes longer to switch from BF4 to BF1 using the new UI (toted as a feature that it would be faster) than it does using the old battlelog way.

    My advise is to enable plugin free game launching on origin battlelog and manually open origin and launch through the usual battlelog way, the only thing that's useful is the prelobby join thing but any ranked server with balancing breaks that right away.

    I had the same problem. You have to do the mortar kills first... CAUSE REASONS. IMPORTANT REASONS. /iwasmad

    Yeah, the thing about the weapon unlocks is you have to do the non-"in a round" objective first or it will reset the "in a round" objective. It's stupid, but it's been around since at least BF3. I was bitching about this on discord just last night, in fact. At this point I'm probably going to recruit someone to cheese it with me because if Dice can't fix their bugs, I see no reason to try to obtain the weapons in a broken system.

    Has anyone ever had an audio bug where the music plays for a second or few, cuts out for a few seconds, then loads an entirely new track and rinse repeat? The voice overs when loading a map did the same thing, too.

    You can also force an audio bug where vehicles have no sound output to other players, different process from BF4 but you can still force both sound bugs so it wouldn't surprise me one bit if you had other things such as what you're talking about happening.

    I feel like on Xbox at least the new maps have worse performance which can make it harder to aim. Also I kind of like the ridiculously long frontline maps cos I always get sad when a map ends

    Also the update seems to have rescrewed the record function, now whenever you record a clip quickly it doesn't get back into the action for like 60 seconds, which used to happen at launch but they fixed it

    I was finally doing well in fort de vaux and then when I tried to quickly get back into the action after quickly recording a clip my frantic button mashing accidently resulted in me quitting grrr

    Normally my win loss ratio is pretty even but here I'm losing almost every game, the maps definitely feel less balanced

    Jesus I lost a game 250-1000, that's like the 3rd time as well, that never happened in 80 levels on the regular maps. There's not enough air defence so planes can just pound you when you're stuck in your base.

  • ToyDToyD Registered User regular
    I had my first round the other day where I just could never catch a break in that round. I went like 2-10 in that game. I could just NOT make things happen. It was awful. I also kept getting killed by a guy with like 50 service stars in the attack plane. That guy was insanely good at targeting infantry chokepoints.

    In three out of four games last night my team stomped the opposing team. One of them we won 1000-390 in just under 17 minutes. As much fun as those matches were for me, just continuously running from point to point defending and recapturing, it must have been hell for the other team who just could not keep more than 1-2 points under their control. Even if their skill levels were equivalent to my team's they just couldn't work together to make anything happen for them. There are nights where I get put onto teams that just cant get their shit together and we lose by massive amounts.
