Yeah I hope battlefield becomes an e-sports game.
Just make sure that sun stays nerfed

Battlefield doesn't belong as an esport game. At it's heart, Battlefield is a large scale battle and the required number of players just isn't viable for esports.

I feel EA's cold, dead presence was in the room when this interview was conducted.

I bet they think they can squeeze just little bit more sales out of the game if they advertise it as an esport title. Somehow I believe EA wouldn't even care how it actually plays as an actual esport game.

I like this Esports concept for the next battlefield game. I feel that battlefield is what a team work type of game is all about. With there being talk of up to 64 players on the next gen consoles squads of 8 plus players seems realistic.

CoD is more of a run and gun type of game even on the MLG tournaments much like Halo has been. Battlefield is more of a thinking gamers modern combat FPS game!

nah, BF isn't esport material. Too large-scale. It would make a pretty uninteresting show.

In Starcraft you can admire outstanding micro/macromanagement.

In Quake/UT you can admire extreme fast-paced reflexes and strategic use of very varied weapons.

But BF, with all weapons bieng almost the same with different stats, and with its slower-paced gameplay, has very little to offer competitive-wise.

Esports I assume that was designed for only Sports games right?

I know this is kinda sideline this but I thought when playing BF3 that the driving mechanics would make a great racing game. Would be interesting if they had a racing game mode. I know hardcore BF fans would probably hate the idea but it wouldn't be a hard idea to implement into the maps just a game mode with way points and barriers put up. You cannot tell me you don't enjoy that jump in the jeeps or the new bikes.
