Battlefield 3 – DICE Hasn’t Forgotten About Esports, More on Battlerecorder and Spectator Mode

MP1st - Some fans feel that DICE has been ignoring the competitive community as it’s been some time that Esport goers, and even casual gamers alike, have requested a spectator mode or Battlerecorder in order to monitor competitive matches.

Remember this/was a pc game. so long term support might seem strange to some.. No BF4 next year.

"Matros explains that “that is why it is very important to stick with what you say.” He’d also like fans to know, “things we say are never with worst intentions. Some things get left behind in a long dev process and get re-evaluated. That is why information can be pretty scarce at times.”


lol sorry but somebody had to.

BF3 unlike COD has a two year lifespan so 7 months isn't bad at al. and it's been 7 months not a year.

Man everything exciting already happened. Can't re-do those.

How many wrong decisions can 1 developer make? No one cares about battlerecorder or spectator mode!!

I understand that you cant please everyone but why wont they just listen to the majority instead of the minority!

Skate-AK2112d ago

Idk what you're taking about. There is obvious demand for it if the question is always coming up. It's not like this was the first time the question was addressed.

I still want a final killcam like Max Payne 3 and Crysis 2

ExCest2112d ago

Final killcam is for the games that are oriented to the killing aspect of the game. Like COD, and apparently, Crysis and Max Payne. BF has been about the objective and not about the last kill but more of the result of a "team's" effort.

i think it would be nice to have a killcam while the scores are being shown~

Pandamobile2112d ago

I like the TF2 style kill cam just fine. I don't need to see exactly how I was killed by an enemy. It gets a bit stale.

scrambles2112d ago

Killcams ruin any stealth aspect of a game with a thunderous crack! A guy is sneaking around trying to find go kill an enemy sniper or trying to get to an mcom but theres a guy in the way so he kills him. That guy now knows his exact position due to killcam and the directional hit markers. Now that BF3 has CoD skulls everyone player on the entire map knows exactly when and where that player dies.

Killcams and skulls are there for noobs who cant pay attention. Lord how casual BF has become. If it showed a screen of all the info about the guy who killed you like what did what % of damage that would be fine but just showing you where the guy is is bad.

Spectator Mode and Battlerecorder would be much loved additions, but really, I cannot wait until they balance the game completely. It usually takes them a long time, but Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2 as my proof, they eventually work out to be completely balanced.

ExCest2112d ago (Edited 2112d ago )

I don't know. It took a long time to make BC2 great but I think it was far from balanced. Throughout the game, I felt that there were guns that outshined the others.

SeekDev2112d ago

Technically, there has to be guns that are better than the others, otherwise there's no point to having multiple guns. It's just that some were more powerful than others while sacrificing accuracy, or other things like that.

chobit_A5HL3Y2112d ago

i can't wait for spectator mode or game recorder so i can see exactly what a "bad luck" death is. running and collapsing for no reason is no fun...

SeekDev2112d ago

Try flying up, up, and a *boom*... "The phuck."

BraveToaster2112d ago

Yeah, it only took DICE up until a month before BF3 came out to fix the hit detection in Bad Company 2.
