The Battlefield V closed alpha ends today, below is a video from JackFrags where he highlights the most important changes. Matchmaking and squad joining are now "as it should be", there have been some notable weapon balance tweaks; he gives a detailed breakdown of each of these.

According to JackFrags, the Time To Kill mechanic is still an issue; at the moment it is longer than what it should be. The revive delay is also a problem, but as he points out, the alpha build is probably already an old version of the game as DICE specifically said that the Gamescom multiplayer trailer is far ahead of the current alpha.

One of the things he highlights is that "tanks are currently just sitting ducks" and that DICE still needs to do a lot of work to balance this. Another issue is the bleed out feature for downed players; it takes way too long causing most to skip waiting for a Medic. The visual effects that have been an issue from the first alpha are also still not where it should be; causing visibility issues, especially in snow maps.

Battlefield V releases worldwide on October 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out your South African price list as well as all the pre-order details. If you want to get into the action before the street date, then you should take a look mat what Origin Access Premier is offering.
