A1 Server Tracker fixed up - Battlefield tracker updated all server ID numbers after yesterday's maintenance - I've added some extra error handling so should look a little better in the future when it goes down.

The Black Window / No Data in the Server View is due to Battlefield Tracker currently being offline.. Out of my control.

I'll work on the error handling so we can display a message to the effect when i get time.

Battlefield 5 Release Delayed by 1 Month
« on: Aug 31, 2018, 19:52 »
It was scheduled for release October 19 but is now being released on November 20. The open beta is still on schedule for September 4 (pre-orders) and September 6 (non pre-orders).

If you watch the latest Jack Frags video the reason for the delay is controversial. One of the reasons is the delay in the development of key features like soldier cosmetics. Other reasons are bugs like headshots not registering and ragdoll issues. The October 19 release date was also very close to the release of the new Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption 2 so by delaying the BFV release EA are shielding themselves from the massive hype those two games are going to generate. Also, pre-orders are down massively compared to previous Battlefields and this is a result of the whole 'no pre-orders movement' and what happened with Star Wars Battlefront 2.

So if we can take anything away from this it's that a delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.

Here's some videos and articles for further reading/watching.

Thanks Chriis , id heard the delay was also due to co op and single player , so if its all true that means the whole game isnt ready hehe so think a delay is called for ;)...PEACE

Don't forget that preorders are down because of lack of faith from that announcement trailer

At least with pre-order you don't pay until release though. I think it is a good move by DICE so to get as much done on the game before the release, even though there will probably be a day 1 patch anyway
