Ugh so frustrating. Just reinstituting the class system would do so much to improve this game.

LordoftheCritics45d ago

Wow that was some laggy gameplay.

for battlefield yes, for ea no... therein lies the problem.

So long as it doesn't change the fairness of the game at all I don't mind. Once you have to start paying to win though I'm out.
Let's see how it plays out 1st.

Gj Dice you just made a Rainbow Six clone and ruined BF one more time. Definitely canceling pre-order.

I don't get why every shooter now needs these "specialists".

gamer945d ago (Edited 45d ago )

Because skins = $$$, blame anyone you know who has purchased and obnoxious outfit for their character. If nobody bought them, they'd be gone.

I don’t get why we just can’t all start out with the same crappy guns and scavenge the map to find better ones, let new different weapons randomly spawn in a number of locations

Least then it’s fair and more about skill

You must be joking! There's enough camping on vehicle spawns stopping general players from getting in them. Don't need that for weapons too

Sorry you must have totally missed the "RANDOMLY SPAWN in a number of locations" part of my comment

Always different, always changing, you cant predict it and if you cant predict it then you cant camp

Do people even read peoples full comments on here anymore or just the first few words

because that's not Battlefield and it never was. Maybe have basic knowledge on how a game has been traditionally before chiming in? Also, none of that has anything to do with specialists.

They tried to pull this stunt in Gears 5, by assigning specific abilities, traits, etc to each character in horde mode. Literally nobody liked it, they ended up changing it back some seasons later to how it was in Gears 4. Their reasoning for it was because they wanted players to attach better to specific characters, and make them stand out more, because as some have said, you are more likely to buy skins if you main a character. But they forget people will do that already without forcing it on them.

Because a lot of games like this are designed largely based on the opinions of corporate management drones who have zero imagination and just copy what the analytics say successful games have.

DICE never seems to learn. Over and over and over and over…

Battlefield? More like BAD-lefield. Amirite?

frostypants45d ago

The series used to be great. They are actively unlearning.

PhillyDillyDee44d ago

It definitely seems that way.

annoyedgamer45d ago

We are witnessing the death of Battlefield right here.

Sad. Used to be one of the best franchises in videogame.
