BF5 has more of a chance of reuniting members into the same game than Squad and Infallasleepency :P

This is clearly an each to their own decision and i get both arguements and respect members views. I think having an open mind is key but you guys making judgement on a game not released with very little information available closing the door already doesnt help the "game that reunites' cause.

Gaming is a pastime and should be enjoyed win, lose or draw, if people are bothered about KDR they should join a gaming clan where stats rule, EBS is a relaxed community with the intent of accomodating everyone though i see the Squad server rules are not relaxed its do this or else. I purchased Insurgency and gave it a try and got pissed off waiting to join games then when i got in was bored shitless, thats just me i'm an in for a penny in for a pound gamer and because of that i realise Insurgency and Squad are not for me personally but at least i tried it.

I believe BF5 will be purchased and played by EBS members more than any other game out soon and with Bill setting up the server and Stu as head of recruitment just watch :Blah: ;)

The same could be said for people making judgements on a game without actually playing it.

You are partly right though, but I know from personal experience that Battlefield is no longer the sort of game I want to play. It started with BF3 and then 4. Actually if I'm honest I was even feeling disheartened as far back as BFBC2. They've changed the gameplay style to cater to kids and bloody run and gun, spray and pray n00bs. There's no skill anymore and the classes which took time to master are ruined - medic, sniper and chopper pilot.

I don't see them back-peddling on their design tbh. It sells well. They've adopted the COD style of game design and that sells a shit load. I fell out of love with COD with MW2, I'll only play the single players now and that's only after they've been heavily discounted. I LOVED both genres, but they've either milked them to death or butchered them to sell more units. Which makes me sad.

I have always been fearful of BF4 dying and that killing the community. And I'm glad Insurgency has bolstered it, I hope Squad will too and I certainly won't stop BF5 becoming part of it if people want it. But what about Battlefield Hardline???

:roll:

I want EBS to survive and thrive. We used to have a lot of different games running, it was before your time Satan I think - COD, BF, TF2, L4D servers all running at the same time and well populated. So I've got no issue with multiple games or even with BF surviving, quite the opposite. My gripe is with EA/DICE and the gameplay style.

Having said that, I also don't like playing games the way Spawnsy leads the Insurgency server. I get bored very quickly with being ordered around for exactly the reasons @Stujb stated - it's a much more clan based style. You don't have to play the game that way, but most EBS players do seem to want to (those playing it). I find that dull and (frankly) I don't like to be told what to do while I'm playing games, if I did I'd let me wife watch me...

Long rant, but the point is I see both sides of the story and I wish there was a game to reunite us all. But as long as EBS keeps going I'm happy as fuck.

Add me to that list. BF3, BF4, BF Hard line made me so despondent towards the Battlefield series. It would take something special to get me back, Battlefield 2142 special!

I've just bought Squad. If anybody's got an hour free in the next few days to jump on a server and show me the basics I'd appreciate it.
