Fall Update for Battlefield 1 Now Available on PC




/ 3 years ago

Battlefield 1

It’s only been about three weeks since DICE issued patch V1.02 for Battlefield 1, and it appears that the game’s major update for Fall is already here. This update provides fixes for annoying crashes related to the DX12 API, as well as a few client crashes, but perhaps one of the most important additions comes in the form of a Quit button that’s now available at all times during End of Round. Moreover, the update brings a series of DX12 and CPU optimizations, and it also includes balance tweaks for Operations and Conquest modes. DICE issued statements regarding changes for both, starting off with Operations:

“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 flag 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.”

When it comes to Conquest mode, it looks like we should expect to see more flags:

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.”

In order to get this update, all you have to do is fire up Origin, and the client will take it from there. If you want to see the full changelog for the Battlefield 1 Fall Update, just scroll down a bit. This game is definitely getting better and better, wouldn’t you agree?

Operations Changes:

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:

  • 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.

General Changes:

  • 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.
  • Equal weather in Rush. Now uses same weather sequence and trigger conditions for both rounds in a match
