Yeah to the people complaining that the two classes look similar expect for their heads, you do understand that militaries use uniforms right?

Edit: also y'all colorblind. The uniforms are different color variants too. Not saying it's the craziest customization ever made but it seems fine

I hope I can deck out my soldiers as WWI Tommies with Brodie helmets and shovels.

Only skins I ever care about in battlefield games are for vehicles.

Remember in 2142 where they had billboards in-game that could show real ads but you could get it to show whatever you wanted by redirecting the IP it used to your local address? They should do that again.

I'm really excited about 2042. Looks like everything I wanted given 1 and V didn't do it for me at ALL.

2042 is also approximately when I should be able to find a video card in stock which is capable of running this the way I want.

I'm all about 64v64 as long as we get 24/7 Future-Metro

it also took like 6 panzerfausts up the rear end to kill a tank so you could just park the fucker somewhere completely exposed and lock down half a map and never die

Tanks in BFV could be simultaneously completely useless and at the same time be nigh-unkillable by infantry and most other tanks (I am not saying these are mutually exclusive). They were basically Schrodinger's tank

While BF has always had clone wars, up to now they were at least faction exclusive, even when it got to its worst with BF5 and the Elites, Misaki was at least only spamming the Axis teams, and in earlier games everyone was at least designed as generic and uniform it didn't matter.

Now that everyone is going to be a specific character with undoubtedly exclusive uniforms and customization options thanks to the battlepass, while also making them open to both factions apparently, it just makes people think of how CoD is nowadays (Warzone especially) when you have whole squads of Captain Price and Sergeant Woods running around shooting other squads of Prices and Woods. It's inevitable that people are going to gravitate to whoever the "coolest" or most meta specialist will be, but then you throw in a total of 128 players on top of and you had a problem with vans full of Ghosts before, you ain't seen nothing yet.

To be fair we should all just wait for the beta and see just how much of a selection customization has, if specialists mean you're just locked to a face and a voice and you can mix and match from other uniforms a la 5, then I definitely don't see a problem with the system, and I doubt much people will complain.


(Still, not being able to design your own character especially when the game's setting is the best thing for it is still a bummer)

I don't really care as long as the cosmetics don't affect gameplay or get too outlandish a la Warzone. I can't tell non-wook teammates apart at a glance anyway, nor do I need to.

Which makes that preorder skin with the black apron concerning.

I'm ready to settle for "better than BFV"

So far they seem to be avoiding the paint chips that lead to BFV, but time will tell if the devs manage to keep their hands out of the Sherwin Williams flavored Doritos in the cupboard.

The Roze skin is a straight up plague. One thing that people donít realize as quickly about it is that not only is it a little harder to see, you canít tell how many people youíre actually fighting as theyíre all identical.

Verdansk is in the toilet. Every game mode on that map is awful. Thereís still fun to be had in resurgence on Alcatraz island, but itís still extremely sweaty. You just donít get as much shitlording like hiding in bathrooms because there arenít as many opportunities to do that poo poo.

Thatís why Iím pumped for a new BF (and Halo), Warzone is very stale.
