video game blues
BF1 isn't as fun anymore

6 posts in this topic

To be fair, i've been suffering from some, what i like to call, "video game depression" (i do have severe depression btw, i'm not trying to sound overly-dramatic or anything) with BF 1, when I played the Beta I was entralled, I finished the 10 ranks in 10 hours EA Access achievement and my entire EA Access gametime allowance in like 2 days, then when the game out I played it to death for like 6 months straight, i'm level 91 now and these past few months the game has felt like a bit of a slog to play, the lag and latency issues have gotten worse, to the point where i suffer from latency issues and lag literally every single match i play, despite having a strong BT Infinity signal, which obviously doesn't help my mood, but also the game just doesn't seem to have the same brilliance then when i first played it, though this is probably because of having played it to death for months, also it seems i'm always paired with the lemons whilst the enemy seems  to have some of the best players in the game, nowadays i rarely play the game, in fact i don't play on my xbox one that much anymore, and most of that time is spent playing skyrim, which i still enjoy very much, i check in every week or so to see if they've introduced some new content and play a few matches, but after a few matches i struggle to keep entertained and turn it off again, i've completed all of the war stories on hard and have got every collectible and codex entry in single player, as well as practically every single codex entry in the game, i also have every single achievement in the game, which obviously i'm pleased about, but still, it feels like everything is done, there are a few more codex entries that are still locked i.e. the 500 kill "Elite" weapon entries, but i don't think i have the patience or the will to get those, every one feels like climing Mount Everest to fill even a quarter of the completion bar, i really want to enjoy this game as much as when i first got it, the game is amazing, it's set in a time period i'm highly interested in, and the graphics are amazing.

 

Sorry for this lengthy post, but i had to get this off my chest, you could say this post has been like a "talking therapy".

Can't you just be bored of it after playing it that long? I rarely play games for more than a few weeks, or I take frequent breaks from them for other games if I do.

That's part of the problem, and there's the frustrating latency issues taking the fun out of the game as well, sometimes it's so bad i'm rubber banding all over the room, and it throws my shots off as well.

If theres one thing I like to do in BF1 is to play with friends (Luckily I have by the 50s of them) and having fun. That's what I keep coming back for. Plus realizing that 3 others major DLCs hasn't come out yet, makes me more hyped about playing them after a short break in between them.

I don't think I have never experienced terrible lag or rubber banding before at least on PC.The only time that has happened is when im playing on EU servers. My framerate's dropping is an issue for me though.

the battlefield series seems to reach its fun close to the end of its DLC lifecycle (excluding freebies they throw in) when you have ALL gamemodes to play and all guns are out to give a try. you dont seem to feel like a grind and are not limited to that 1 or 2 gamemodes you like like in the start.

Seems a lengthy absence has worked wonders, because I really quite enjoy the game again, I like making montages, and I have unlocked several of the 500-kill "Elite" codex entries, I'm level 109 now. The latency issues have also settled down considerably, making the game much, much more fun to play!
