Why a Battlefield 4 commander feature is important

"A commander in the game would add a whole new tactical layer to the gameplay" - BF4Central (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I have no idea why you got disagrees for that but if it is like MAG It would be awesome

Probably because a Battlefield Commander, as in BF2, is nothing like a Squad Leader in MAG. Both are leadership positions, but the BF Commander is much more strategic and you have a lot more stuff you can do besides just tell people where to go.

adding a commander feature would be more like an older Battlefield game not like mag. Like BF2142

This is actually really a great addition. Lots of times it's hard to organize your team. So from a tactical standpoint this will really give the game a lift in mulltiplayer cooperation with team members.

Looking forward to organizing a strong clan from this mode.

Commander will be pointless if BF4 goes the BF3 route, with the run-and-gun COD style gameplay. Theres no room for that old BF2 type strategic gameplay there.

That would be a sad thing if they tried and go after the COD market...

If they tried and go?

Have you been playing last couple battlefield games? Because we are sooo deep in CoDland right now, its sad.

It would be great if they would stop making CoD out of Battlefield, and go back to more tactical and skill based rout.

That was my biggest complaint for BF3. The commander was awesome but just needs to do more. I would love it if there was something similar to Natural Selection 2 where the commander could give orders and help in multiple ways but also upgrade things and abilities for his team. How well the team does helps the commander do his job. It's a symbiotic relationship. I would love that in a BF game.

I would love for them to implement something similar to MAG in the next one. That was very strategic with the 3 levels of commanders per side, and different abilities to each class. It also encouraged people to work together more and volunteer to step up as leaders.

I know everyone is saying BF2 commander was something different, and I am sure I would enjoy that as well. I just never played it before. I have only played BF3, and the maps on ps3 are too big with not enough playersand there is no real encouragement for squad work other than a few extra points.

Just from my experience MAG did it right. Lots of players on maps of the right size. Commander skills and bonuses made you want to work with your squad. Most of your strategic options as commanders could be done during gameplay, although it usually was better to jump to the map view for a lot of them, you didnt have to. MAG is definitely my favorite tactical team shooter I ever played online.
