#Battlefield1 #DICE – Battlefield 1 Fall update fixes various DX12 crashes – DICE has just released the November/Fall update for Battlefield 1 on the PC. According to the release notes, this Fall update fixes various DX12 crashes as well as several client crashes, and makes the Quit button available at any given time when in the End of Round.
In addition, this update comes with a number of DX12 and CPU optimizations.
Naturally, this update also comes with various balance tweaks for Operations and Conquest.
Regarding the Operations mode, DICE had this to say:
“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.”
As for the Conquest mode, DICE said this:
“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.”
This update will be auto-downloaded from Origin, and you can view its complete changelog below.
