MP1st - "One issue that has confused many Battlefield fans is squad spawning, and how it will work in the final version of Battlefield 3."
Definitely going to play hardcore
Never really got into HC mode in BFBC2, but I think I will in BF3. Don't know why but I feel it will be more interesting. Especially with all the new gadgets.
Neither did I; it didn't do it for me in BC2. But, with the Hardcore spawn system, I will give it a go.
almost everything i read on this game make me want it even more
10 more days my friend, just 10 more.
OMG!!!!!!!! so clooooooooooooseeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeee eeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! ! Skyrim and this!!!!! im dreaming?
Okay so can we spawn on anyone on the team or just in the squad because he said anyone can spawn on anyone.
Squad 100%. I'll add it to the article to avoid confusion. ;)
Cool thanks. Although that might break the game a little bit because if you can get one dude behind enemy lines then all 12 people can spawn behind the enemies. Seems a little unbalanced but I guess we will have to wait and see.
I like that spawning on the leader should keep the squad together more often.
Yeah, I was really hoping this would be the case for the entire game to sort of "force" some of the more unruly players to at least be with the rest of the squad after spawning if they were going to be up front, but I guess I can hang out in hardcore mode more. Should be a good incentive to play on hardcore since there wasn't much reason to in BC2.
I hate squad spawning. It takes away from the tactical nature of the game in my opinion. I was hoping they'd say Hardcore mode wouldn't have it.
Why? The maps in Battlefield are big. Some sort of organization of players beyond Team A and Team B is a good idea.
I dont know which way i would prefer to be honest. Squad spawn is so useful, especially for a squad working close together and also to get straight back into the action. But on the other-hand, if you spot an enemy and you think he is all alone, he runs into a building, run in after him and then bam! 3 more guys are sitting waiting for you. There loads more ways in which this can happen. Spawning on the squad leader gives the leader more importance and also encourages the squad to help each other out. But on the otherhand, the leader could be an annoying eejit who keeps dying or a sniper who sits on a mountain the far side of the map. Thats if i even play hardcore, didnt like it in BC2 but will definitely see what its like on BF3. 28th c'mon already ya bastard. Slowest.month.ever.
Ahhh, are you over in Europe? We'll send you some pictures :)
Damn you Americans! You always get everything earlier.
In bf2 the squad leaders role was to STAY ALIVE at all costs. They would either have a medic near them or stay near the objective so that squad members could get to the action quicker. Effective squad leaders determine the battle.
