This game is a major downgrade in a lot of ways. Lack of scoreboard, squad voice, server chat, weapons, maps, gamemodes, you name it. I was waiting so long for a good battlefield to help rekindle my passion for videogames, and then this comes out to disappoint. I hadn't played the series since a year after BF1 came out and was really excited to get back to it, especially because of Portal. We all know how that went. I miss BF4's customization and simplicity. It was a lot easier to wrap one's head around, though granted, the "+" system was a good idea for swapping attachments on the fly like in Crysis. I refunded my top tier edition recently and I don't plan to come back until the game is fixed, has a healthy amount of content like it should have had at launch, and a hefty price cut.

I've been a battlefield fan for years . Paid £53.99 for bf 2042 only to find out I've got a xbox one and my mates got a new xbox series x and we can't get in the same squad like in bf4 . Who do I contact to get a refund

The reason people like bf is because it's eveything cod is not. It offered better ui, better sound, a plethora of unique was to play and work together as a team. The developers literally removed those entire features! What do you think would happen if you removed everything that made battlefield battlefield?

Loadouts don't save. Have to spend the first 3 minutes of every match completely rebuilding my loadouts. And that's when I can get into a match without being stuck in an infinite load prematch screen.

Driving a tank, only to go over some terrain and just...fall through the terrain, looking up at the tank that I was just operating as I fall forever into nothingness. Only option is to redeploy. Hit detection is abysmal at best, and down right non existent at worst. Can literally have a guy standing still not moving, fire a shot on his head, and watch the round sail casually through like he's not even there. No hit, no anything.

Watching a tank drive up the side of a wall was literally the most WTF inducing moment I've had with this dumpster fire of a game.

In my over 3 decades of gaming, this is the first time I've EVER requested a refund for a game.
