EA DICE Team

No-Pats,

 

We hope you all had a good holiday break! Now that the team is back, we've since been hard at work preparing the next updates for you.

 

Update #3.2 will be available on January 20, and contains further bug fixes and stability improvements to resolve occurrences of game crashing. 

 

You’ll find fixes for hit registration issues related to Sundance and vehicle passenger weapons. We’re also resolving several soldier gameplay-related issues, such as rubberbanding when running behind friendlies, or being stuck in a downed and alive loop.

 

We’ve also got more Battlefield Portal changes set to go live alongside this update that will enable more servers and game types to progress on Mastery and Weekly Missions. Read more on those changes, here

 

These updates are part of our continued commitment to address your feedback related to resolving bugs and improving gameplay. Currently scheduled for February, we’ll follow-up with another update focused on Quality of Life improvements. This will also include enhancements to the Scoreboard, which you can learn more about here.

 

We’ll continue to keep you informed on the roll out of Update #3.2 via the @BattlefieldComm Twitter account. You can also follow along with our tracking of Known Issues and game changes that we’re able to make in real time on our Battlefield forums.

 

The Battlefield team

Fixes, Changes, and Improvements

 

General

  • Fixed an issue where leaving a party during matchmaking could make the game unresponsive
  • Fixed an issue where connecting to EA servers after signing up with a new account would not work on the first attempt
  • Updated behavior of the quit button during gameplay so it now returns you to the correct screen
  • Fixed an issue where the loading music would stop playing during level load

Soldier

  • Fixed a rare occurrence where after landing with the Wingsuit, hits wouldn’t always register on some parts of Sundance’s hitbox
  • Fixed occurrences of rubberbanding when running behind friendly players
  • Fixed a rare issue that could cause you to be stuck in both an alive, and downed loop
  • Fixed a variety of issues with attaching to ladders that could cause you to get stuck in a state where you could fly away or lose control of your Specialist
  • Fixed an issue where soldier movement speed was impaired by nearby explosions that spawned craters
  • Fixed an issue where camera shake and audio for landing would unintentionally trigger when dropping from very small heights
  • Fixed an issue where weapons from a Loadout Crate would sometimes inherit ammo from the previously selected weapon
  • Fixed an issue where being spotted when firing a weapon would spot you for too long

Stability

  • Added multiple fixes to improve overall game stability 
  • Fixed a rendering related crash that could occur for AMD Radeon VII users while Sundance was visible on screen

Weapons

  • Sniper and SOFLAM scope glints now show from a further distance

Vehicles

  • Fixed an issue where passenger weapons would no longer be in sync whenever the driver’s turret would rotate, causing bullets to not register when firing at enemies
  • M1A5, T28 - improved the effective range and reduced spread on Canister Weapon Pod
    • Reduced Bullet Spread from 1.6 -> 1.1
    • Increased Damage Fall Off Distance from 35 -> 40

Sorry Dear new DICE but we (especially we, squad of 7 friends) aren't going to get back to battlefield, not now not ever, not until we see the same old features which we had in every battlefield games earlier. How can you not have them in BF42? And what takes so long to just add such basic functionalities that have always been there.

 

bring back:

- Able to change squad, lock squad,

- UI customization (mini map changes)

- Server browser for full game. Its impossible for two friends from two different regions to find a game with current system. 

- VOIP in every game mode. (did you guys just assume we read minds in Hazard zone of other users in squad? its impossible to play)

- Whats the drama with removing and bringing the Rush mode? Rush was classic since bad company 2. Add it. 

No continuous lobbies, need to do matchmaking again after every match wthell? i want to be able to play with same enemies another time. 

 

^ these points are basic points. These aren't something extra. these are something that have been there in every battlefield earlier. 

I never write a comment, but you guys stole my 80 euros and gave me nothing that I expected as a base game. 


Delete this comment and I'll accept this is what DICE is, improve the game and all of us, especially 7 of us will return to the game. 

- A veteran

Dear DICE,

 

The game is dead in the Middle East. We can barely find a Conquest Large match. We never ever played things like Rush, Breakthrough 64, and Conquest 64. The only thing that can fix this is the addition of a server browser. Our ping in ME servers is roughly the same as Europe servers. So, why stick with ME servers then?

 

On the subject of Scoreboard: Make it two-column, remove the clutter on the left side, add death counter, add ping, add player ranks.

 

On the subject of this update: The patch note for an update after 1.5 months is very thin, and the fact that you announced the next patch is coming in mid to late February only makes things worse.

 

On the subject of Portal: Just enable full XP and remove all XP from killing BOTs. It's not that hard

Our community has supported Battlefield since 2003. Personally myself I own every Battlefield and always gotten the ultimate edition except for hardline (can check my origin account), This is the first time I feel like getting a refund.

1st thing - I get these fixes are needed but I’m not playing 2042 until the game becomes more enjoyable than BFV.

2nd thing - I’m not buying another Battlefield until you can show that you really listen to the community, we don’t care for specs ops in AOW, create a 2nd AOW using front line regular solders and then people can choose (like choosing more vehicle maps or INF maps in CQ for BFV). You can see the list of changes the community wants, work on this list, I don’t care if it will take a year I’m willing to wait just tell us you will do this and set reasonable dates and try your best to meet them.

 

Why would I invest any more time and money into this series when you clearly are making this game for kids who enjoy apex, if you can’t fix this one the way we want except low sales on your next title we won’t be fooled again by good trailers and lies.

Hello,

 

- You are able to change the squad while you're in the game from the ESC menu - Scoreboard - Change Squad.

- You're able to lock the squad by setting it as Private in Social menu

- There are some levels of degree where you can customize the Minimap - I've already zoomed it out per infantry, vehicles and air vehicles. You can change the opacity, to be static or to rotate etc.

- If you have a friend from a different region why won't you squad up with him and join any AoW / Featured or Portal server through Server Browser?! 

- They already announced that VoIP will be added in mid to late February with additional improvements.

 

Thank you!

 

A rookie who put more than 8500 hours played into this franchise.

Will the performance on 128 players mode be improved in cpu intensive cases?

 My 3600X is not enough for a solid experience, frame drops from 100 to 67 fps on cpu demanding cases on 128 players modes.

 

 Will you improve it with this update?

 Will you fix it a bit in the next update?

 

 Do you still care about us? :-)

@FilthySOAD I have had every PC version of this franchise since the OG 1942. I cannot believe that it is impossible to join my friends / browse servers.
