When playing Beta I was getting 10-20ping so there are definitely local servers
10-20ms ping is quite good on official servers as EA has stopped the Rental Server Program. Can't beat the 5ms ping I enjoyed on BF4 SG hosted 3rd party servers. But still better than connecting to EA Japan or Australian servers.

Me too. Used to operate a bf4 server for the longest time called Asia/SG.

Just doesn't feel the same without the scrips and votemap and all that. also the quick option to kick cheaters :(

Tried one game 2042 in Manifest, one game in 1942 Battle of the Bulge and lastly one game in BF3 Caspian Border.

First impression

Cons:
- Game performance is really bad... I'm getting 50-70 fps on average with 3700X + RTX3080, using seems like it is very CPU intensive as setting med to ultra have little performance difference.
- Menu/loadout navigation is a bit unintuitive.
- 2042 loadouts are very limited, would have appreciated if they spent more time making more weapons instead of specialists.

Pros:
+ BATTLEFIELD IS BACK BABY!!
+ UI improvement over beta.
+ Ping system improved from beta
+ Guns have proper recoil now, no longer laser beams like COD

Most reviews out now seem to point out the dogcrap performance on PC compared to Series X / PS5. Seems that Dice spent most of their time optimizing for the consoles and neglected PC. Hope they fix it soon.

Encountered a bug that's causing my kills to not properly track for vehicle unlocks.

Watching streamers play this game it looks really really fun to play with friends because there is so much that u can do in a single game.

I guess only one problem is that u need a good pc to handle it but if u play on the console then u are fine.
