Default Battlefield 5

So it looks like we're getting a teaser trailer a week from now ( May 23rd)

Rumors are that it's set during WWII because of the name BFV)

What's people's opinion on here about yet another battlefield game ? Personally I hope they go back to their roots ( 1942/BF2) and bring back some of vehicle mechanics/spawn systems. They also need to rethink their custom game servers and give back more powers to the admins. Customs servers are what kept the old battlefield games going for so long. 32 to 48 player conquest maps was my go to for many years and unfortunately BF1 lacked big time when it came to that.

My predictions ? I hope I'm wrong but I feel like it'll be a reskinned BF1 game with a BR mode attached to it. Time will tell.

I remember playing the original BF1942. I also played BF2 a lot ... too much. I enjoyed the first better. I have collected almost all the BF series on various platforms. I am looking forward to this

But they're bad for sales. I actually played BF 1942 less than a year ago.

But it's Battlefield V, not the number 5 on the leaked screenshot. V for Vietnam (I hope, I hope)? I guess we'll find out on the 23rd.

I got back into BF1 a few months ago and still play it regularly. Key for me was finding a couple of clan servers that actually have admins that boot trolls and racists. I've enjoyed it a lot more this time around.

What's the size of the servers ? I havent really touched that game since last summer so I'm not sure if they tweaked things on the custom server side of things. imo 64 player is just too much . It's the ol' call of of duty feeling, spawn die spawn die

I'm trying to see what parallel there is between V and WWII and how that hints it's going to have a WWII setting.

what have I missed?

I'm excited, but I'm not. Nothing can beat bf1942, unless dice remastered bf1942 in frostbite.

Absolutely and I doubt it would ever feel the same. I miss the simplicity of the older battlefield games and I've really lost interest in the franchise. The eye candy is nice but I feel like the core gameplay has become pretty stale.

Battlefield went full COD after 3 and I've given up on it since. I really miss BC2.

I used to play enemy territory and return to castle wolf online when battle field came out I tried it didn't like it because of all the hacking going on plus all the sites I played on the admins were kids and would just kick anyone that they didn't like . when i used to play ET the admins on clan sites I played always watched what was going on and what was said they mostly watched ( I knew a admin that was a judge for the et competitions) for clipping hacks. never tried BF since back then I watched a few people play and with all the spawn camping and the like makes the game no fun for anyone.
