There are certain maps I just outright avoid in BF4 (or at least wait a few minutes to see how a round plays out in the early stages) because they attract the worst of the best jet/helicopter pilots. Since the maps have no or extremely limited AA options those pilots get to feel like a big player as no one except another jet/helicopter can do anything to them and they’re good enough to kill anything except another 1% jet/helicopter player.

Basically any Naval Strike conquest maps, Siege of Shanghai, the China map with the wrecked casino boat, Flood Zone, Rogue Transmission, and Paracel Storm (and others I’m probably forgetting) are maps that get me immediately looking to the sky.

good news none of those maps are in BF1

War pigeons was probably a response to obliteration being tied to the MCOMs

War Pigeons was great and you can still randomly find a single game every now and then. God's chosen mode was the limited time, Pistols Only War Pigeons

There is one naval strike map in bf1, and it's the best map in the game.

Does the med crate in your equipment slot also let you revive team mates? How does reviving work in this title?

They mentioned that squad revives are back in. So it might well be that simply taking a med crate would expand your ability to revive to players outside your squad. Also, one of the revealed specialists has the trait of fully healing people she revives, which implies that by default revives bring you back at reduced health.

Same system as BFV: Squaddies can revive each other with half health but can't revive non-squaddies. There is a trait attached to the medic-syringe-gun-operator that makes her revive people at full health. I'd guess defibs (or whatever incarnation they are in this one) are still a gadget you equip to you can res anyone not in your squad.

On first read my brain somehow morphed this into "defibs you equip on your gun" and now I need that to be a thing so badly.

I'm okay with everything that OHK's snipers across the map, even if it OHK's everything else as collateral.

I'm sure the equivalent of quadbikes won't be too harmful to "gift" the enemy team alongside a dead sniper.

counterpoint:

Sneak up to the sniper, drop a tank on the sniper, and then use the tank to shoot his sniper buddies.

Conquest would be fixed

To me, conquest was at its most fun with it balanced teamwork with player agency, Aline that was straddled in the BC2/BF3 era.

Fixing conquest and itís player number creep would take extremely careful map design, so lol.

I'm back on a Battlefield kick, BF4 mostly. Is there an active goon community playing the BF games together? I seem to remember at one point there was. Is there a SA Gaming discord? I thought I remembered one but I can't find it in my server list.

There are several discords and it's becoming convoluted. As far as I can see I'm one of the most active itt but I'm working through the Max Payne games atm as well. Same name on origin though

I've been busy lately but most nights at least somebody is playing BF1 and it would be cool to have more! The BF4 meta is kinda weird and ossified around weird hitbox stuff with jumping. It's still fun but can feel very stiff (in contrast to the jumping and sprinting) and stupid.

Discordís promise was that it would unify all the different gaming comm services I used. Iíd be able to seamlessly talk to my RL friends and internet friends and play games with everyone.

Instead I have thirty plus discord servers with notifications that either donít work at all or are a complete deluge of poo poo I donít want, and every single community has its own discord that YOU JUST HAVE TO JOIN TO PLAY THIS GAME and each one has forty five loving channels, all of which are throwing notifications unless you go in and mute them one by loving one, after which you can never get notifications to actually work for the channel(s) you care about.

I mean, I guess you can still DM people.

No, this is bang on and the list of servers I'm on has become quite daunting and needless at the same time. Such that its been largely ineffective at helping me find anyone for BF4

The most players I have ever seen at one time has been on the main Battlefield Discord at http://www.discord.gg/battlefield - it is filled with people playing BF4 on PC at all times, and some BFV, all squadded up in the voice channels. It's not goon run however, and I've not seen anyone playing BF1.

The best thing to do with ďserver rulesĒ is to immediately use the the weapon that they have banned. No stinger/igla? gently caress you duder Iím using that thing.
