A player has started a petition for the upcoming Battlefield 4, urging developers to add bots.
With the next gen AI hopefully taking a few steps forward I'd love to see a bot mode in any game where it made sense.
This is certainly something that should be added. Playing with some friends against bots is great practice, when typically human players will try and abuse any unfairness possible. Though this does mean developers will actually have to put in some sort of effort to make AI more intelligent than a brain dead toaster that alerts when you enter it's bubble of detection.
"Next gen AI". Oh boy, these fanboys.
having bots in bf1942 was stupid, i dont see why a multiplayer game should have bots unless its a tutorial. go play against real peoples ffs.
After the rounds I played this morning I swear I'd have been better off with AI team mates whatever the scenario, how is it possible, in a 500% ticket TDM for 9 of the people on your team to have less than ten kills apiece and less than ten deaths?
how about a free rome map where u can learn to fly jets and choppers.
Just find an empty Armoured Kill server and play around with the jets, the best way to learn to fly choppers is to play the co-op mission "Fire From The Sky" until you get the hang of it.
And don't forget dinosaur ai and laser guided dildos flying around. jk I'm retarded.
Nice that someones thinking a head
It's spelled ''ahead'', and there is always someone thinking about ideas to make a game better. The most important though is getting it out, so that it might get executed in the final product. And I hope this will be a good enough message to Dice, to have it executed in the final game. Though it's probably EA's call, god knows how they will respond to this.
Been asking for bots and LAN mode for BF3 loooooong before its release. Best reply from community manager at the time was, that no one plays LAN anymore. Its like yeah, no one plays LAN with bots anymore because you don't add those features in your games anymore.
That's like telling someone "You don't have real friends"
Pretty much. It really sucks, because it would be nice to play newer Battlefield games with my buddies, but we still stick with 1942, or Desert combat for now. Sometime we can get up to 8 or 10 people playing LAN under one roof, its good times.
1942... XD. I downloaded the demo from origins which was actually the whole game. I started playing it and I don't know... I guess it's how badly the later generation games have spoiled me with all their eye candy and what not but it was not what I remembered it being when I first played it how ever many years ago.
Great idea. Why didn't I think of it?
And what difference would it make, if you had thought of it? Sorry, just your comment is pointless, and so is mine, but there wouldn't be mine if there wouldn't have been yours.
*there wouldn't be mine if there hadn't been yours*.
So we went from single player games to online multi-player games during the current gen. If this happens we will go from online multi-player to online single player games by replacing the other players with bots. I guess if there is another "gen" after that we can replace the bots with NPCs and go back to regular old games. I, for one, can't wait!
Throw in the return of 6 man squads.
Yep. And commander.
would be awesome!! I always tought having a mode with all the online players as a team, defending a base with waves of soldiers coming in, like MW3 tried to do, but would be so much better in battlefield with vehicle coming in.
I want theater mode, what fun is it if you can't share good gameplay with friends or study your mistakes?
Love to see it, hope it happens..
Give us private matches as well with no minimum number of players. Sometimes I just want to mess around with friends.
I remember when psn was down for like a month. I had more fun with bots on kz3 than I did online.
