Yes, the Battlefield One servers are packed with people.
Especially since Dice made dyck move of releasing the woke and political correct Battlefield V aka. "Genderfield
", so many players have shifted to BF One simply because its is probably the best game Swedish Dice ever made. The new Battlefield 2042
also flopped and is a new embarrassment for Dice
. So for that reason people also go back to play Battlefield One.
You also have loads of different game modes to choose from in online mode which makes it even more dynamic and fun.
You need some patience though as a new player because the game is really skill based and you need to understand and learn each weapon which all have unique properties just the the real weapons.
All weapons in the game are mostly real existing weapon from that time era during WWI, so they do mimic the real weapons properties too. So in the start get used to that you will whacked quite a few times and don't get upset about it.
But as it is based on exactly that, the game is actually very fair as there is no inbuilt "game balance/auto balance" which evens it out.
Many people which never played BF has a hard time to understand that as it that is quite common in other vanilla games these days, (You also often see newer players complaining about "where is the balance?" in the game chat because they are not used to this
). Instead the game balance itself depending on how many new vs experienced players there are on each team side (The British vs the Germans for example).
Also Dice have a habit of never nerfing weapons but again it all "balance" on how skilled players/people are. You can have a really nasty powerful gun but a more experienced player can still easily take you out with a lighter weapon for example...
Anyway - if you have time for it try it. You won't regret it.
