Major changes come to Battlefield 1.

Right on schedule, DICE today launched Battlefield 1's massive Fall Update, which makes a long list of changes and improvements to the popular World War I shooter.

One of the major changes has to do with the Operations mode, which is new for Battlefield 1. The attacking side loses too often, DICE said, so it's boosting the number of tickets for that side. Additionally, it should now be easier to capture sections as an attacker, as the time to capture flags has been reduced.

Another significant change is for Battlefield 1's Conquest mode, specifically the Suez map. It's one of the game's smallest Conquest maps, featuring only three capture points. With the update applied, two more flags are added. "This should result in one team not being able to capture and lock down all flags as easy as before," DICE said.

"In addition, we also noticed that it was very difficult to re-capture flags within the capture areas located in the village areas. To solve this we've reduced the capture size of these areas to include less buildings," the developer added. "The result of this should make the flags somewhat easier to capture and make sure that a team that has lost and been pushed out of the villages can easier re-capture them and get back into the fight."

Additionally, DICE has added an armored car that should help a losing side overpower their enemies. Here is how the Suez map now looks for Conquest matches:

Today's update also introduces the ability to customize your solider from within the UI. This is a welcome change, as the previous setup was something of a pain if you wanted to switch things up mid-match. The patch also introduces rent-a-server support, while the ability to buy Battlepacks with real money is "coming soon."

Additionally, the Battlefield 1 update makes a series of changes to weapon balance. For example, light machine guns have been given "various forms of adjustment" to make them more viable as mid-range weapons. Additionally, tweaks have been made to gadgets and vehicles, while the update also includes a long list of bug fixes. The full patch notes are below, as posted in the game's official forums.

Battlefield 1's servers were offline for all platforms today as the update was applied. The game should now be back up and running. Today's update is around 2.2 GB.

Released in October, Battlefield 1 became the biggest launch in developer DICE's history based on the number of daily active players. The exact number was not disclosed, but we do know that players spent a collective 59 million hours in-game. You can see more statistics here.

Battlefield 1 November 15 Patch Notes

General:

Operations Changes:

Going forward we are addressing the balance issues with the Operations game mode. It’s clear that attackers need a boost. To increase the effectiveness of the attacking team, we are increasing the overall tickets for both Operations & Grand Operations. In addition, we are also making it somewhat easier to capture sectors as an attacker by reducing the amount of time it takes to capture a flags in Operations & Grand Operations. We’ve also increased the minimum tickets regained in grand operations to from 30 to 50, as well as increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders. This will give more of a fighting chance to capture the next sector after previously capturing a sector while having very few tickets left.

64 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets from 150 to 250
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Increased the amount of minimum ticket regained when capturing a sector in 64p Operations from 30 to 50.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

40 player

  • Increase attacker maximum tickets to 200 from 150
  • Increased the amount of tickets regained from killing retreating defenders after capturing a sector from 2 to 3.
  • Slightly reduced the time it takes to capture flags.

CONQUEST CHANGES:

We’ve listened to your feedback in regards to the Suez Conquest layout in regards to balance. We will be adding two more flags to the layout, this should result in one team not being able to capture and lock down all flags as easy as before. In addition, we also noticed that it was very difficult to re-capture flags within the capture areas located in the village areas. To solve this we’ve reduced the capture size of these areas to include less buildings. The result of this should make the flags somewhat easier to capture and make sure that a team that has lost and been pushed out of the villages can easier re-capture them and get back into the fight. In addition, to help a team that has been pushed back all the way to their HQ, we’ve added an armored car that players can use to break out of the HQ and flank the opposing team.

  • Added two additional flags on the Suez map, giving it a total of 5 flags.
  • Added 1 armored car for either team to spawn in their HQ.
  • Reduced the size of the capture volumes on the flags located in the villages, old A & B flag. This is to reduce the amount of building interiors located within the capture area. The change should result in the flags being easier to capture.
  • You can customize your soldier from within the UI by selecting either the icon on Home or on Soldier
  • If the squad leader ignores requests for orders the leadership is transferred to another member of the squad.
  • When a squad member requests an order (and there is no active squad order), the requesting player is added to the want-to-be-leader queue for that squad and a 60 seconds timer starts (the timer is not reset if there are other squad members waiting in the queue already).
  • When the 60 seconds pass, the first member in the squad queue (the one who requested order earliest) is promoted as a squad leader. If there are other members in the queue after him, the timer is automatically reset to 60 seconds and if the new leader doesn't give orders over that period either, then the next waiting in line is promoted and so on.
  • If the current squad leader issues an order, then the queue for the squad is cleared.

Personally, if you're like me and want to use a non scoped bolt action, this game is unplayable. You won't survive for more than 4 seconds without getting killed by a sniper, a tank, a blimp, a machine gun of maybe 20 different sorts (i thought this was WW1), and before you know it, a homing pigeon. Ridiculous.

Campaign? Worst BF campaign i've played (it's almost all stealth solo crap like SE3)

And i'm not getting the "great graphics" argument from folks at all. They must be playing on a computer monitor or small screen tv. On my 50 inch, this game is butt ugly. What a waste of money.

@jagdedge124: You MUST be trolling lol. I use a non scoped bolt action all the time. I actually prefer to use sniper rifles that way. My K/D on PC is 1.8 and 1.4 on Xbone so I'm not dying all the time like you're saying. It's extremely playable and it's a ton of fun. Did you ever think that maybe, just MAYBE you suck at the game?

I stopped taking you seriously when you said the campaign and the graphics were bad. I play on both a 1440p 24" BenQ monitor and my Samsung 40" 4k set. Game looks gorgeous.

You are a terrible troll.

@Rushaoz:

Personally i don't buy this troll sh**. You're a PC player, and a butt hurt fanboy, and my comments have nothing to do with a PC. This game is awful, and what are the player counts now on PC, now that you mentioned it?

This game is dying a slow death, as it should. Now take a walk.

@jagdedge124: Can you read? I play on the Xbox One as well you, jamoke.

52,000 players on right now with the 24 peak hitting 86k on PC. A total of 218k players across all platforms at the moment at 10 am on a Thursday. 24h peak for all platforms was 418,000 players.

Yea, the game sure is dying a slow death! -_- Do you hate the game that much? Because you sound like a proper imbecile right now.

@Rushaoz:

So what's this?

https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/59060/what-happened-with-the-graphics

Look, don't pee down my leg, and tell me it's raining. The graphics suck even on damn PC. And what the hell is a "jamoke"?

You're obviously a kid with your feelings hurt in that i don't like your game. Well that's just tough sh**. Deal with it, and i can't read your link for whatever reason.

@jagdedge124: I don't know what those guys are talking about. Game looks exactly the same to me. I'm playing on a 1070 with everything set to ultra at 1440p. And I'm a graphics whore. I would have noticed a difference yesterday as soon as I loaded into a game. Besides, don't you think if there was some sort of downgrade that it would be a much bigger deal? People would be going ape shit everywhere if that was the case. A simple google search brings up nothing as far as a graphics downgrade goes.

We get it. You don't like the game. Seems like your biased more than anything but hey you can't make everyone happy. I'm loving the game and so are hundreds of thousands of other people. Carry on.

You're not very convincing. Anyhow, they gave me my money back going back on my card, and they took this garbage out of my library. Problem solved. I'm not going to back and forth over this nonsense. Plenty of much more important issues.

@jagdedge124: Wait a minute... I thought you were talking about the PC version. So let me get this straight lol you're complaining about the games graphics on the weakest worst platform of them all??! It runs at 720p on the XB1 ffs!! What were you expecting?! To be honest a graphical downgrade would be welcome IMO. The framerate during 64 player matches is absolutely atrocious. I hope they did downgrade the graphics. Maybe I'll enjoy playing it more with a smoother framerate. I'm gonna have to check it out later. Anyways yea I'm done with you lol can't believe you trolled me over this games visuals on a fucking console. Fool me once..

Hopefully they fixed the crash for GTX 770 users (and other GPUs) which have made the game unplayable since launch.

Why increase the strength of plane armour to the flak cannon?

Apparently pilots who use them a lot say the following when people say they do too much damage "Well they're dropping bombs onto meat sacks, they should be doing a lot of damage" but they conveniently ignore the fact that planes back then were made out of wood and cheap metal those flak guns should be doing massive damage to them.

To be honest I'd have been happier seeing a plane combat mode only I don't think planes have much of a reason to be in many of the maps they're very pointless and contribute nothing towards the objective and it makes no sense why a regular attack plane can bomb too the bomber plane should be the exclusive class to bombing I'm afraid Dice are compensating to bad players who just want to get easy kills oppose to going on the ground and earning them, very sad.

@Keitha313: They may have increase the armor but the planes still go down in a matter of seconds lol. And the flak guns fire for a very long time before they over heat. Personally I think that in order to balance it out the flak guns should over heat quicker, not increase plane armor. If there is a plane that needs to get armor nerfed it's the bomber. That thing takes way too much damage to take down. Getting behind it with an attack or fighter plane when there's someone on the rear gun is suicide.

@Rushaoz: This slight improvement for pilots make very good pilots near impossible to take down If you're the only one putting shots onto him i.e. they will use tactics of swooping down very low and because of the extra buff onto the armour they can get away with taking a few extra shots before they make a move onto getting out of range.

I would have liked to have seen the attack planes front machine guns get a major buff to combat what you said about getting behind on a bomber with their rear gunner.

@jfhdnxcc: Battlefield 1 was FAR from broken on release you jamoke. No multiplayer game is going to be perfect on release. If that's what you're expecting, you need a reality check.

I just had a few games, has anyone noticed that there are WAY more tanks, almost everywhere i went there were tanks dominating......unless your assault....you have absolutely no chance of even damaging a tank, i hope this was just a couple bad games, otherwise things are absolutely out of balance, meaning to even have a chance of playing you need to play assault, i couldnt stop playing this game, but if its going to be world of tanks with infantry im done, its just not any fun, they had the balance with vehicles correct why do this.

@wretch1d: The problem is that enough people play the assault class but they don't focus on their main job. People running around with automatic weapons just trying to get kills instead of taking down tanks. Console gamers are just terrible for the most part at objective based games. On the PC this happens much less. And if it does all it takes is a simple "BLOW THE FUCKING TANK UP AT C" in the chat and people come running.

God I wish consoles had global chat support.

@k41m: Pilots ruin the game they have no skill because I seen plenty of good pilots before the patch you just aren't that good and you've whinged enough for Dice to break the game to accommodate the untalented portion of the game the guys who do nothing for their team.

The patch does not fix this glaring hitreg issues with the game. People who've played BF longer than I said that DICE's calling card is their horriible hitreg and how they have not been able to fix it from BF3 forward.

Sadly, I have to give up expecting proper damage application, and just accept that people will always one shot kill me, around corners and other such B.S.

I literally mid day started using the mortars and was shocked by how in effective they were. I heard they were going to nerf, I think they went a little too far with it but I dont really care because this is a videogame and Im adult.

How did all this slip through during quality testing of the product? Not wasting anymore harddrive space on this game. They can damn well reissue it and do a recall of the original disc. Sick of this crap.

@MugenTheKing: It wasn't fixed you're right and they're dumb to not fix it the AA guns didn't need any nerf they were fine the way they were they're firing explosive rounds at a wooden plane what do you expect guys?

It's sad that these portion of gamers want to ruin the game for others as per usual with the BF4.

I kinda wish they'd have something that allows everyones games to load at the exact same time regardless of hard drive so people with SSD can't get the unfair advantage of first dibs let it go to the fastest person who selects it.

@ltjohnnyrico: Close range is no problem but 1 shot kills at 20 meters is over exagerated. If you play a lot of TDM and Domination like I do, you will notice a lot of people complaining of this. It definitely is OP.

Has anyone had issues connection to 64 player Operations matches? 40 plyaers seem to work 100% of the time, but when I try 64 player it only seems to work half the time resulting in a Server Disconnect message.
