I think the real mistake is thinking that a game has to be similar to a modern shooter to be fun, like Theta said.  I see that argument a lot about battlefield 1.

This, basically.  In general, yes, they will always be successful with a AAA shooter.  But to claim that they couldn't have been successful with something more accurate to the history of WW1 is ludicrous.  Personally, I WOULD put down money for a COD1/2 style of historical accuracy WW1 shooter.

Today I saw a guy on YouTube playing with a Gewehr 95+iron sights and bayonet. I find this extremely fun and entertaining, and also the feeling of hiting an enemy at huge distance is so pleasing. Yes, it puts you in a bit of a disadvantage but it is still better than playing with those weird SMGs and MGs with scopes. I don't know why everyone should play with those automatic weapons and say "Bolt-action is stupid because I am stupid". Don't the players have some imagination? This is why I am not really into AAA games because the players only care about how to gain some advantage over the others (shouldn't they actually?) in any possible way. No one cares how idiotic their weapon looks.

Another thing I noticed is the map layout and object placement and it kinda reminds me FH2, just a little bit but it does. I was hoping that the gameplay will resamble FH2 too, at least a bit. Let's hope for something like Historical Mod or something altough I don't believe this will hapen. Heck, look at the World of Tanks historical mod-it existed for a very short time and you had to wait sometimes for 10-15 mins. to join a match. As far as I remember Wargaiming screw this idea because there weren't enough players. IMO such thing can drag many peole to play the game and it doesn't cost much. Just create a server with limitation for rifles only without much fancy gadgets and a few MGs-just like in FH2.

You know, atleast DICE listened for once. For example in BF1 beta, you could reload the Steyr M.95 one bullet at a time. Someone on youtube demonstrated this with his own steyr that this is impossible. DICE redesigned it before release. I guess the touch for historical accuracy is in the game...but EA is the one who decides how this game actually will be.

For example, WW1 had many wacky experimental weapons who looked odd and even steampunk like. One of the reason why EA wanted them in is to show to the world " HEY WE GOT A GAME WITH NEW GUNS"

And then you realise they barely scratched the surface of WW1 era weapons.

I played BF1 on my mates account today. And yeah, i just took a Steyr M95 with bayonet and pure iron sights. I really enjoyed playing like this, especially when you gun down sprayer and prayers.

Instead of the usual ZOMG RUSH RUSH JUMP GUN GUN tactic, i actually advanced carefully, aimed and fired. And well it kinda works to a certain degree. But its nice to see that alot of people in BF1 follow this path. Just a bolt action rifle, bayonet and iron sights.

Its an improvement over the past decade of AAA shooters. But it still is one

I think it is very hard to do what Ivanic listed above. Just look at it: 3 tanks, 1 gun, 1 armored car and those  jihadist pick up trucks ;D, a few planes, a single train and some Naval vessels. And they (DICE) said they've been working on BF1 since BF4. Battlefield has never had a big variety of vehicles but the amount of vehicles in BF1 is just small. Considering this, I think it is helluva lot of work to make even a single vehicle.

Yes,I was just applying that the game engine has code in it that would allow you to intergrade that kind of stuff in game. Its like: FH2 works because it is using bf2 engine and code-you cant make anything more in FH2 and PR that bf2 engine doesnt allow (it doesnt allow enter vehlichle animation,so you cant ever to make one in FH2).

However this engine has everything that I said plus it has some naval gameplay so I asume it could be usable for recreation everything that bf1942 had and more.

Just one observation.

Game looks very good, but I'm not gonna pay over 100 euros for the game with premium. I'll wait a year and pick it up half priced.

I got the game for 37€, and then I'll pick up premium from a good offer if there'll be.

Bought the game on saturday for my weekend fun since I'm exploring germany right from monday to friday doing my duty for the country. ;D

I thought it's going to be a complete teenager fun shooter with no real facts about the first World War and all kind of prototype weapons and science fiction guns, typical meatgrinder maps and horrific fast-living gameplay. And kind of, it is.
Still, I really have to say that I haven't had so much fun with videogame for a very long time, MGS V was great but way too commercial and killed the best videogame series in my opinion, Far Cry 4 had it's nice story and countryside but was over way too fast and Battlefront II, well, it was Batllefront II....

Battlefield 1 has a huge potential to be an awesome game, the graphics are a blast, the destruction is driving me insane, the vehicle spawn system is perfect and the self-repair makes tanks and planes much more valuable for the player. They even were able to put a blasting atmosphere in the game, I mean, the distance sounds, the effects and the screaming soldiers really get you into the feeling of war.
The balancing also works out great, every team has the same guns, vehicles and the behemoths are game-changing. Plus there are many things to play around with and do foolish things (flare gun, flamethrowers, horses...), the typical battlefield feeling I missed for quite some long time.
It sure is disappointing that the historical facts are missing, I mean, MP18s with what appears to be a reddot sight, axis tanks for the entente and the over way around and many other things. If you are just looking at the game though, it sure is worth is money, games nowadays are sadly fixed on making money and not teaching you history but that's how it is and I accept that.

Don't want to miss the next battle in amiens, lurking around the ruins with my sniper rifle, putting down booby traps and hunting for enemies in the narrow roads, filled with gas, blood and screaming soldiers. 8)

Maybe in 30 years, there will be a Forgotten Hope mod for BF1 ;D ;D

In 30 years, video gaming will probably change very much from what it is now and BF1's graphics + features will look "old". ;)

Exactly, but it might still be great and I can only imagine how FH2 would look in the BF1 engine.

Good to see french added to the game, altho one could argue that they should have been there in the first place...

Not that I care all that much since I dont play the game, but I can at least appreciate their effort to include more nations. Darn good looking game thought.

Believe it or not, I'm actually having a blast with BF1. Frostbite is just beautiful..

I haven't had this much fun with DICE titles since BF1942.
