Battlefield 1 Patch Notes: May Update (5/30/17)

Battlefield 1 Patch Notes: May Update (5/30/17)
OPERATIONS We’ve received a lot of feedback from gamers regarding matchmaking into Operations servers, and we’ve made some adjustments – the first of many – to help mitigate getting matched to an empty server. With this change, a completed match of Operations will loop back to the same Operation rather than exiting the mode. However, you’ll be on the opposite side of the battlefield. For example, if you started as the French Army in the first Operation, you’ll be on the German side when it loops back after the “End of Operation” screen. By remaining on the same server with other players, instead of returning to the globe screen, we believe this will reduce the occurrence of being matched into an empty server. In the coming updates, we plan to continue to expand this feature to cycle through a complete Operation playlist. PREMIUM FRIENDS We’ve tested Premium Friends twice in the last ...

Battlefield 1 DUH DUH DUH DUN DAH DAH! The king of multiplayer shooters is back. And instead jumping even further to the future (2143? Perhaps down the line? My personal favorite) they took a step back and instead of “rebooting” WWII genre, they went one step further, WWI. I’ll be completely honest, when the rumors back when started that the next Battlefield game was going to take place in WWI, I instantly thought “that can’t be” because to the modern gamer, WWI was slow, stressful, and a lot of sitting around waiting for a whistle to jump over the top of a trench just to get killed. So I figured, because a year or so before this, they asked the community “Why did you like Bad Company 2?” so I figured like BC2’s starting campaign in WWII, this new game’s story would start out in ...

Battlefield 1 11-15-2016 Patch Notes
General: OPERATIONS CHANGES: Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. It’s clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. We’ve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left. 64 player -Increase attacker maximum tickets from 150 to 250 -Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector ...
