I nearly died of disappointment when I saw 2042 and My brain interpreted it as 2142 and then I had to remember that was a different game lol.

it seems cool, it definitely seems like there arent going to be warring 'countries' anymore more like a bunch of Mercenary factions, I dunno, I'm cautiously optimistic but I guess we'll have to wait for yet another arbitrary reveal date for more.

Also LOL the idea that soldiers would be so close together in their hundreds like it's a watergun fight is supremely hilarious to me.

I keep looking again and again at the trailer and for the life of me I cant find any form of 'countries' or alliances, but I did see a bunch of corporate looking logos so my suspicion that this is a mercenaries game might be true.

In 2042, extreme weather events and resource conflicts have shifted the balance of global power. The United States and Russia stand at the brink of war, while a mix of non-patriated combat veterans form independent groups known as Task Forces. Fight to define the future in this never-before-seen theatre of war

Is what they say on the website. So US v Russia maybe, but definitely left open for ambiguous mercs.

nope it's written in the website that 1.2 billion people become climate refugees and those are the people that US and Russia arm recruit as mercenaries and proxy armies.

The only reason why the A-10 hasnt been decomissioned is that there literally is no enemy that america has fought since they came out with the plane that has a reliable enough anti-air system to shoot them down, so if your task is to destroy a bunch of third world APC's and Tanks it's an amazing plane.

The whole on-the-fly weapon modification looks pretty neat, but I'm not sure how much use you'd realistically get out of it for anything except the optics. I mean, what situation could there be where a player would decide "Boy, I sure wish I could throw away my drum mag and exchange it for a smaller stick mag right now".

Smaller Stick Mags will mean greater weapon stability, more accuracy, which is important when you're dealing with more open terrain. Drum mags are for indoor assaults.

Iím not a huge fan of non-standard magazine sizes in shooters because it inherently becomes the best choice no matter what most of the time. Granted that comes mostly from RPGs like The Division where your choices are between ď100% more ammoĒ or ď10% less recoilĒ but I think itís still better to have the guns balanced around an amount of ammo you know everyone has.

not necessarily in modern warfare a larger magazine makes the gun much much less accurate.

The Commander in BF4 didn't have that anyway. You sometimes plonked down supply crates (if so preferred, on snipers, them being enemy ones being optional) or Cruise Missile'd a roof.

The orders and such were completely pretty much entirely ignorable.

Yeah so why even have it? All it will do is annoy the players who have to listen to some bozo bark orders and not supply correctly and the Ďcommanderí will just experience the heartache and stress of being completely ignored 90% of the time.

Itís almost like Bf1 was an inspired design for a setting and they went all out to make it wide, expansive and captivating while Bf5 was supremely boring in itís choices for locations and setting.
