I fly helicopters about 60% of my playtime. Mostly little Birds and transports but occasionally one of the attack choppers. When on foot I like to go sniper with a spawn point and harass the “back” flags. cuts down on the need for twitchy skills but can still be effective at capturing a point. Everyone loves a well places spawn point as well. Healing gun is also fun. I’ve gone whole matches without shooting a bullet but I’m prolly not playing right :)
We are all-in on Battlefield. We are committed to unlocking its potential as one of the best first-person shooter franchises in the world. To make that vision a reality, we’ve launched a global effort, coordinating multiple studios under a leadership team of industry veterans to build a connected Battlefield universe.
Many of you know that Marcus Lehto joined the team earlier in the year. Today we announced the name of his new Seattle-based studio, Ridgeline Games. Marcus will bring his long legacy of creating fascinating worlds and gripping narratives to Battlefield. Backed by a world-class team, he’ll be leading the charge to develop a narrative campaign set in the Battlefield universe that will engage fans in new and exciting ways while remaining true to the classic elements of the series.
Creative Director Lars Gustavsson is out.
Creative Director Lars Gustavsson, who has been with the franchise since the beginning and is affectionately known as Mr Battlefield, has decided he is ready for a new adventure. We would like to thank him for his invaluable experience, expertise, and friendship for all these years.
Lars has dedicated a substantial portion of his life to Battlefield and is proud to have helped shape the franchise into what it is today. He is excited to pass the baton to the next generation of Battlefield creators at DICE, Ripple Effect, Industrial Toys, and Ridgeline Games.
Still playing a few hours a week here and there. Mostly 64 player conquest on all new and old maps or something in Portal if it looks fun. There is vehicle heavy mode going on now that is a lot of fun if you like those. Limited or no planes but lots of choppers! It’s pretty awesome because the attack copters actually seem to get co pilots for a change. I played two whole matches as a gunner in the Apache, we died once. Good time.
Side note… I think the newest map sucks. Need more old maps in Portal please. Something from Dragon Pass dlc from BF4.
New map is too symmetrical. Big rectangle in middle with two evenly spaced points in middle. 4 capture points the exact distance away from each corner of giant rectangle. Bleh! Maybe just need to play it more.
Agreed on one map is a joke. Would settle for one new map and one old map added per season. Do community polls on future ones to add, etc. You know drum up some excitement or something.
Yeah, I did that as well. I usually would get some use out of it, but didn’t really play much of anything else either so it was a waste of money in the end. I will probably pick up BF2042 at some point in one of these sales, but haven’t really felt the urge yet.
Yeah, the revamped Renewal map is just more cargo containers, sandbag berms, and concrete barricades scattered around. Yawn. It’s still a lame map. I don’t understand how these revamps take so long to make.
The 1911 pistol is whatever. The P90 is good. The GOL sniper rifle is fine.
