In Topic: EA Expects Lower Revenue Partly Due to Battlefield V

15 January 2019 - 01:32 PM

Overall I think that BFV sucks (as politely as I can put it).  I'm a huge BF fan and have every version of the franchise through V now.  The pattern is predictable for me after all these years.  I'll start the latest version and think to myself "man I hate this latest version", but I keep playing and by the sixth or seventh session I'm all in and almost completely forget about the previous release that had occupied hundreds of hours of my time.


Not the same with BFV.  I keep playing it hoping to learn to like it, but after about ten hours of game play I'm still under-whelmed and totally frustrated.  Snipers that can seemingly kill you with one shot from a mile away, tanks and other armored vehicles that feel like they move at a snails pace, people that have a KD of 500/5 and my list of gripes goes on.  Don't get me wrong, the PQ is beautiful if you have the right video card and can run high/ultra or some combination of the two.  But everything else feels like a change in the wrong direction.

In Topic: Case [Rant]

I will keep my eyes open wev. Selecting a case is hard. And we being who we are makes it that much harder because what is cool with the industry isn't always the answer. Hate to say it. But when we see it its either hated, liked or we fall in love with the dang thing and we get it.

However the ethoon line has always been, and likely will be, something to Marvel and contend with. I just got really lucky when I layer eyes on the 011 dynamic. Lucky. But I expect full tower cooling capability....... Challenge accepted.





Hey Wevspot!!




Got that one on my short list too  :)

The first and simplest thing to do is try to use the internet with a different browser.  If you're using IE or Edge, try Chrome or Firefox, visa versa whatever.  As Slick pointed out it could be an issue with hardware acceleration.  You Tube dropped Flash and started using HTML5 back in early 2015, so this could be an issue with the video engine included with whatever browser you're running.


Also, as IR noted, it's never a bad idea to check for subsystem stability (i.e. RAM, CPU, hard drives) using the commonly available tools.
