Short answer is because the game is s***. Better off grabbing Rainbow Six: Siege or PUBG. Both have had increases in player base over the past year. R6 goes on sale fairly often as well so it can be had for cheap. There is additional content, but everything other than a few specific cosmetic items can be purchased with in game currency.

Season pass just unlocks things quicker so isn't required at all. New operators can be unlocked from in game currency, usually within 1-2 weeks of regular play. All new maps are free for everyone. Don't have PUBG so I can't comment on that game. Just my 2¢ though.

hackers


Funny enough,I said the same thing here a month ago,to the vehement and zealous denial of some dudes on this board who insisted that their game has no hackers and instead to "git gud"

Like,really who the hell do they think they're kidding when you can so easily find a hack just by googling it.

1. I don't know about the popularity of TDM, but in reality, Operations and Conquest are still probably the most played game modes (TDM might be in third place).
2. Depending on your region, quickmatching will almost always populate you into a dead server for many game modes.
3. To get around that, just use the server browser. I also thought the other game modes were dead, but then I adjusted my filter to show servers up to 150 ping and in North America, South America and Europe. I ALWAYS find populated servers (some with queues) that are just at the 100 ping point in Europe. And that latency has never caused me any noticeable issues. I'm not a super badass Battlefield player but I find myself performing just as well as when I play on 20-30 ms US servers.

They extended a middle finger to the existing community and the existing community extended one right back.

Well I don’t have BF1

I have bought PVZ2 and TFall 2 through Origin and both of them are dead for me.

Perhaps people aren’t fans of Origin?

Hmm...There are zero servers playing war pigeons, supply drop, frontlines and one populated server playing rush

Because nobody wants to play s***ty modes?

Because it's worse than BF4 in just about every way possible, just like Hardline was

The game is very poorly optimized and I’m sure people are tired of the game crashing all the time.
