yep. BF1 is so beautiful with its action packed graphics that you dont see the enemy before its too late. But its a very good response time training simulator :-)
The net code in Bf1 is also very tight. I have not experienced any server crash, stutter, lag or what so ever. Everything just runs like a hot knife on top of cold butter (Much better than Mac+console)
Dunno if net code its a part of frostbite engine or something else ?
I hope to see a 100+ player trench fight server in the future if possible :-)
Often when game engines are discussed in forrums I find it mostly always about the fancy graphics and not about how clients and master work out the net. Maybe net code cant get any better than <100 players and We are all just waiting for 5G around 2022 +/-  -:)

Actually most BF games are good, except BF4, that's just a dumbed down BF3. Anyway, less nitpicking aside, BF1 does interest me a lot. I saw some Indonesian guy play it without lagging. Well, I might give it a try.

I just have some fit with Origin. Hundreds of Gigabytes of games just went missing, despite clearly being there and the stupid software just asked me to re-download the whole thing. Nope thanks, uninstalled it altogether.

I have to admit, getting the Ultimate Edition for BF1 was the way to go (early access to the new DLC, extra benefits for examples).

It's actually on sale with Origin now, so you can get it for $77.98 (in U.S.) instead of the whopping $129.98. :)

BF1 had a price tag of $129.98???  :o

Call me old-fashioned but I will never go above $49.99.

Well to be specific, the Ultimate Edition was that price. ;)

Really CPS? $50? That was like 15 years ago. Today, an AAA title will set you back at least $60.
My pre-order of Simcity cost me $72 with 10% discount (with 2 "free DLCs" and 1 exclusive DLC), so it is $80 at full retail price. That was 2013, and now I never even touched that game. They throw in BF3 standard for free, because of the launch problems. Then they got me hooked, costing me another $24 (at a discount) for the packs and expansions.

I bought BF4 deluxe at $55, that is a 50% discount. Then I bought another map packs and other packs for another $18. So if BF1 asks for $80, that's a fair game. But $130? Bloody hole, that's a rip off. Another reason I abandoned The Sims altogether. Also, another reason why Indie game publishers / developers are booming.

"Old-fashioned!"

Oops, I did it ;)

Nah, I agree. I'm very happy that most games I like I try out first (demos, friends accounts, other ways), and then after some years of playing FH2 for ree I buy them on Steam sale for a few Euros.

My most expensove game was BF2 because I bought it when it came out. All my other games were on a  discount. I think it's something like this (only games I paid for):

1) BF2: 50 Euros
2) Half-life 1: 30 Euros
3) Company of Heroes 2 plus all expansions: 25 Euros
4) Battlefield 1942: 20 Euros
5) Company of Heroes 1 plus all expansions: 18 Euros
6) Verdun: 10 Euros
7) Civilization IV plus all expansions: 7 Euros
8 ) Red Orchestra 2 plus Rising Storm: 5 Euros

So all that for just a bit more than only BF1 ultimate edition ;)

BF1 PC Is still only € 31.49 on cdkeys.com without expansions

Many modern Games feels like many more working hours were put into them like the big hollywood moviee. Gaming industry was not like it is today 10-20 years ago.

I hope they will make BF1 playable with VR and/or UHD HDR monitors before its lifecycle ends :-)

Fair point. God knows how much I've spent on Crusader Kings 2 DLC's, let alone games I hardly play anymore. Still, must have some principles!

You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.
