Bring back the hilariously broken Battlefield Vietnam helicopters that could single handedly win a match.
Ah the good old days of the BF2 Blackhawk squads with an anti-tank pilot, ammoman and medic gunners, and 2 engineers and a spec ops in the back constantly repairing and dropping mines and c4, nothing could stop it... except a whammychopper.

LOL then.

Westie's overview went out of the way to specify that DICE had said there was no BR at launch and Hazard Zone is not a BR mode.

Game ships with 10 classes/specialists and plans for more as DLC. Are they masochists when it comes to gameplay balance? That sounds insane unless itís just lazy ďthese two supports are identical except one has health kits and the other has ammo.Ē

So if they do it one way they are "insane and masochists" but if they do it another way they are "lazy"? I guess you can't win these days.

If this is a return to poorly balanced vehicles and weapons that create fun and creative ways to play the game it could actually own.

I want more games to abandon the idea of a shooter having to be perfectly balanced in all ways such that it feels sterile. Battlefield is never going to be an e-sport, let me do some dumb poo poo and laugh when I actually pull it off one out of every 20 tries.

Your good vision is your fatal weakness!

I dunno, they way they describe it makes it really sound like something other than a Titan mode.

"A new way to play Battlefield is coming. Discover unexpected battles with this experience"

"Created as a love letter to our core fans, a new way to play Battlefield is coming. Discover unexpected battles and enter the wide universe of Battlefield with this experience,"

It sounds more like a battlelog 2.0, with some sort of random pick up game matchmaking across the "universe" (maybe a unified battlefield client or some crazy poo poo?). Or maybe this is that base-building Renegade mode that people were speculating about. That could make sense if in this near-apocalyptic world you have these No-Pats setting up new settlements and bases.

I dunno, still hope we get titan mode though.

Balancing gameplay around 10+ unique classes sounds difficult. Splitting the traditional load out choices into rigid classes under the guise of more options would be lazy. Iím sorry if my comment during this afternoon of speculation and shitposting upset you.

After watching that JackFrags video it sounds like the classes will actually be unique and there are some neat ideas, although Iím not thrilled about snipers having a proximity warning system. My concern is the additional complexity to a series that has really struggled with gameplay balance. But hey, you donít know until you try. Another poster pointed out Apex Legends has handled it well, so maybe itíll work out and be fun.

it sounds more like each "class" is just two semi-unique perks so it's probably not too crazy

pretty sure they said all weapons are available to all classes so you could have assault with proximity warning and snipers with grappling hooks

Iím glad they seem to have some kind of vision this time around and not wasting their resources on bull poo poo like campaigns or a battle royale.

Bot lobbies might be pretty cool, thatís a neat idea. Not really excited for 128 player servers though. That has the possibility to be a complete meat grinder.

Yeah I feel like Specialists are just the scrapped class archetype ideas from pre-release BFV which had anti-tank weapons as primary weapons so we'll see if that carries over.

If the objectives are placed well it shouldn't be an issue. The largest map, Breakway in Antarctica, is roughly the size of Vikendi in PUBG

I hope they change vehicle balance significantly from BFV, where it always felt wrong to me. It was one of the primary reasons I quit playing.

I know opinions differ, but my take is that the tanks were way too easy to kill and the airplanes way too hard. If someone eats a team vehicle slot by rolling out in a dedicated AA vehicle, by gum they should be able to shoot down a drat airplane instead of being merely a bit annoying.

Yeah planes have almost always been way too OP in battlefield, when someone good is flying one (ie not me I die instantly). Battlefield 2 had the best AA with the linebacker/tunguska, you could just blitz unsuspecting jets with the cannons by hiding behind buildings etc. The flak cannons in 1942 were good too.

I think Battlefield 2 was the best one for vehicles and balance overall, with the exception of the blackhawk but that required a squad all workin together.
