BF4 and COD gaming discussions

COD

Ever since TU 01/28/2014 Ghost has been giving me errors (connection, friends list, skipping, etc) and I downloaded Battlefield 4 to try another game ( I had played 1943 and liked it).

Well to be very honest the game is fun, I say that not bashing Ghost ( I find Ghost fun when its working) but the differences between the two are what makes it fun.

BF4 offers very large maps, various gun attachments and set ups and vehicles (which are hard to use) now when I compare the two I find that they both provide me with my necessary indulgence in amusement.

Pros:

1- Variety in almost everything

2- Building destruction / vehicles

3- very large groups of players making for fun large battles

4- Less "child" like rewards (ribbons, unlocks, etc).

Cons:

1- Hiding is more prevalent because of the size of the maps

2- Takes many bullets to kill

Ghost offers speed and better (detail) in graphics it does. It is significantly smaller than BF and is really focused on gun fights.

Generally both games are great, but lately BF4 has been (because of the Ghost issues) my game to play, and as a noob I am taking a beating as all NoObs should when new to a game.

Your opinions?

They are two completely different animals. I enjoyed BF3, not buying BF4 because I have little time to play any more.

I always say, play what you enjoy.

I didn't like Battlefield 3 because I rarely found myself winning. I don't recall ever winning a match honestly. I played solo and kept finding myself on a server dedicated to an entire clan or so. There are still kids that whine.

What I found incredibly interesting, so much so I almost did my research paper on it in college, was that all the kids that whined and complained about all the faults of CoD went to BF and started making stupid rules and threatening to kick anyone who violated them.

What happened in BF?

People didn't follow these rules and I found the same complaints on the DICE forums. These kids throw huge hissy fits in the lobby complaining about "this camping #$%^ and "that [insert valid tactic here]". It was quite hilarious to see all the irrational children giving their two cents on how to properly fight a war.

I was amazed at how many of these same people who left CoD of BF came back to Call of Duty after they couldn't find what they wanted with DICE and EA. I went to the forum simply to survey the attitudes and it was the same ole' bitching and complaining that we see here. Only BF has all the whiners who left CoD so they were more than willing to share their expertise on how to properly play a video game.

I didnt like it either but I am enjoying this current one,

Crying, whining, complaining has no boundaries and is in every game, EVERY GAME I play tekken and people complain if you grab them.

Like COD, BF has a learning curve and it takes playing to get use to it.

Msg me next time you play. Teamwork is much more useful in bf than in cod. A good 4 man squad can control the game, particularly in the modes with vehicles. The mode "rush" has been my favorite, I like conquest but I feel its a little too vehicle heavy. Rush has a great mix of everything. If you want to snipe for a minute then switch to a pdw and get in the face of your opponent, this mode is perfect.

Basically Battlefield plays better when it comes to network stability and an even playing field. While Call of Duty players better when it comes to more gun fights, smoother gameplay, and smoother controls. If the games combined it would be the perfect FPS because it would play better in all aspects.

I don't think they games are any more even on bf. I have noticed with the last couple that people aren't using teamwork and tactics as much as they used to. And my theory on that is  quite a few selfish cod players migrated to bf.

Well Call of Duty players have been switching to Battlefield while Battlefield players have been switching to Call of Duty for awhile now.

Fun factor..

If you play with friends -

BF takes it by a long shot. I've been playing BF on PC since launch and I still don't think we've done everything you could do (if you count all the trolling or funny things). Cod is the same exact thing over and over.

If you're into lone-wolfing -

COD is slightly more fun, you just miss a ton in BF when you play solo. But in Cod you still never have those 'HOLY SH*T' or 'LOL' moments like you do in BF, so it's almost a tie.
