they need to make is the removal of heroes
Well...not really, you can do this without that. Make them optional, have everyone animated to have those same abilities if they select the class (as that is what BFV did, like you can be medic and have any avatar) It can be done while keeping the characters, keeping the abilities, simply locking those abilities to a class.
But talking about it earlier to a friend, its much more difficult to even do as you'd need to re-animate all characters, even the default ones in the game in Portal to have a wingsuit and do other abilities and stuff. So it can be done where they are just avatars. Like still in the game, simply not forced and an optional cosmetic thing.
They removed the scoreboard because there was no way to fill 128 servers without massive bot injections.
huh? Lol Thats....thats not really true though. It sounds like a funny theory, but its not true even remotely lol So I agree if you press the tab button on PC you can see like the list of players and what platforms they are on and if they are AI or not.
Did you not know that exist on all the platforms? I'm playing on Playstation and I can see all that information too lol So you can play in Portal with no bots as that is an option, but for the most part, when playing Conquest or Breakthrough, I've more so played with 95% HUMANS and 5% bots if that.
So Bots imho is a positive, it is something that has been asked for generations to return, them existing isn't an conspiracy and you can see if you are playing with AI on PC, PS and XB, no platform hides that info for some conspiracy or something lol
As far as I can tell from the rumors, it was a design thing for some feel good type thing, like they wanted everyone not to feel bad about dying a lot or other people getting more kills or having a better K-D o some shit lol Nothing to do with bots, nothing to do with platforms.
As shit, did you even think this shit thru? Why even fucking add AI next to the name using such a odd theory? if it was suppose to be some secret to get away with something, just not have that shit listed at all lol
BF5 killed the franchise.
Nah, this game should have never even become one of the fastest BF using that logic.
This IP looks like it will get hype on a game to game basis, if BFV wasn't enough to kill this IP at launch, as in sell WORSE Then BFV, then I don't even know how bad one even needs to bomb at this point if 2042 even after such a horrid beta is moving 4.2 million units.
What battlefield players want is, traditional warfare and realistic visuals to deck it out with, with a engaging gameplay loop.
Some do, some don't. I used to believe majority wanted modern, but looking at BF1 being the best selling BF in history....I'm not sure.
I think overall the community wants a quality game and I agree with you, engaging gameplay loop, but I don't really know 100% if the time frame really matters as long as its a good game.
For all we know the best BF game in history will be some Civil War game that comes out in 30 years lol
What EA wants, is a milk cow that competes against warzone/fortnite
Sure, but they could have did that shit by just making that 2042 Conquest and Breakthrough portion Free To Play and making Portal deeper, as in 100% of BF3, BFBC2 etc.
So this is one of those situations where they can have their cake and eat it too. I can't ask a company not to make money where they see it being made, but my biggest issue is the quality of this title, the leadership ignoring the feedback given to DICE by fans and rolling out a game they already knew had design issues.
