While camps from both sides of the war zone that is 'Battlefield v.s. Call of Duty' continue to duke it out in forums and blogs all over the internet, Ars Technica has a different perspective that balances the argument.
"Battlefield 3 needs to steal Modern Warfare 3's availability on Steam" If BF3 was on steam then there maybe no battlelog. People need to accept Origin. It isn't as bad as it seems. The guys who played the closed BF3 Alpha loved it.
we never said we loved it. We only defended it when people were up in arms about there being no server browser menu. it worked which is the only thing that mattered. I'd still take it over steam any day of the week.
YOU never said you loved it.
"What Battlefield 3 needs to steal from Modern Warfare 3" nothing.
Split screen would be nice.
I agree hands down. Splitscreen online on battlefield 3 would complete my life.
That stuffs unfair online.
@bwazy For starters, there's co-op. Nothing unfair when there are only two people playing to begin with. And what's unfair about split-screen online play? If both players are in the same squad, or even just on the same team, I don't see how that could possibly be unfair.
I'm actually suprised he didn't mention that. Local multiplayer is a fairly big seller for call of duty.
@Hufandpuf Absolutely correct. I had the honor of being one of those guys and I absolutely loved Battlelog. Far better than any in-game server browser I've used. @Wizziokid And what should Modern Warfare 3 take from Battlefield 3? Don't be so one-sided, man. There is always plenty that ANY competitor can learn from one another in this industry. I can't even think of an exception to that. I'm with the Battlefield 3 camp myself - ALL THE WAY. But you know that we'll find something down the line that we see in MW3 that we'd like to see in BF3 and vice versa. You know the phrase... "There's ALWAYS something." @Septic Nice. Below the belt... But nice. Hehehe...
I don't think they need to steal anything from anyone, BF3 is an almost perfect shooter (on pc) and well COD can do with an upgrade.
Only thing I think BF3 needs is a way everyone can chat with each other. Because I think is good for the game when teams can "add fuel to the fire" for better competition. IMO
That would be insane. Everyone would just talk over each other, espicially because each squad is doing their own thing.
In between matches, not during.
I hated inbetween matches on cod. It seemed like a kids rage outlet every time. I talk to my squad only over skype as they are always friends and I prefer it that way. On PC we can talk to whole team anyway via text which has alot less talking over each other during and after games.
MW3 needs to steal BF's PC preorders. Your around 20 places down on most pc preorder charts.
BF3 needs dedicated servers (that aren't provided by a sole company, but the players) and LAN play. It's a no sell for me now due to them choosing not to do this. This is the core capability that is needed to make an FPS game a long lasting online game that builds a community and stays alive.
