Yeah, and about as fruitful as the Playstation vs Xbox debate.

Battlefield is becoming more like cod with every release and always decided to chase the trends of other shooters. Not to say cod doesn’t do the same thing, but while I admire battlefields attempts, call of duty has a polish and presentation that I’m sure Dice wishes they had. Cod has multiple iterations every year but I won’t lie, I really enjoy the more tactical and realistic approach they attempt to make with the modern warfare series as of late. I honestly wish bf would stop chasing trends though and give us another incredible high desctruction classic like bad company 2 was. If we have to use portal to live out those incredible games however, so be it. But 2042s new mode and hazard zone kinda fall flat on their face with no real pull to keep players playing
