Battlefield 1 Alpha invitations have gone out.

This morning emails were sent out for the Battlefield 1 Alpha. Testers are randomly selected so there is a chance that you have been invited! Check whatever email is tied to your Origin account that you have previously played a Battlefield title on, or if are opted into the early testing program. Some codes may indicate that they are for Playstation 4, but the codes work for Origin. Congratulations if you got in! The email looks like this:

There's a good bunch of closed alpha players it seems. Hope it lasts for a while so I can try RX 480 with it + can't play during weekend.

Looks promising tho. "Explosive" HMG bullets are kind of fun to use, especially with the zeppelin thingy ^^
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:
  • 3VerstsNorth - Analysis of game mechanics in BF4 (tickrates, effects of tickrate, etc)
  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

That's kinda clever actually.
*Museum hat on*
Fun Fact: The first confirmed Zeppelin kill was a guy called Leefe Robinson VC (he won the VC/Victoria Cross for his actions in downing the airship), and he downed it by using new-fangled tracer ammo called "New Brock and Pomeroy" ammunition (alternating rounds of incendiary and highly volatile glycerine-based ammunition, respectively) fired from his bi-plane, obviously this did quite a number on the blimp, which was essentially a wood and cloth box filled with hydrogen!
Unfortunately Leefe was captured a year later and died shortly after being released from Spanish Flu (which was rapidly becoming a thing at the time)...



--------------------

On topic: I WOULD check for an alpha key, but the inbox connected to my Origin account is kind of a bitch to get to (being on the old PC in the garage now). Great design feature that, not letting you change the bastard :pinch:

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.


intel best ethernet controllers


ammo regen pls


TL;DR: all vehicles in BF4 are screwed up in some way or another.



I know I shouldn't be surprised that something like that even exists but.... 8|

this reminds me, my pc has so much dust that half of my cpu heat sink is completely blocked of by dust, and my gpu geats to 85C with mere indie games...

i really need to clean this thing if i want to ever play over 40 fps.
