Hey Tom, just a suggestion for the next BF game. Communication realism:
I was an Air Force pilot for 14 years and I enjoy the flying in BF. One thing that might help the next iteration...when I am in the air in BF, I can’t communicate with the other pilots. I know we can communicate in clan /party/squad, however, would it be possible to have a “common frequency” that could be turned on or off to talk to other pilots (we had ‘guard’ frequency 121.5 in the Air Force as well as now in civil aviation)?
This could also be extended to tanks or overall battlefield comms. We could able to mute some people in the overall scoreboard if they are being idiots...and that could carry over to the frequency selected. Maybe a few different frequency selections for the game we could toggle on/off Air, Ground, Tank, Objective Selected (based on all the squads with that objective selected), etc...
Anyway, just though that this is one of the things that might separate BF from COD...tactical, strategic communications like, “AA is active on D objective” or “Tank approaching Alpha from Charlie”. We used to filter out frequencies in the Air Force when chatter got high, but we always monitored “Guard” just in case it was emergency traffic.
Love the games, I play exclusively BF because of the tactical nature and immersive experience...keep innovating! Cheers, John Schaeffer
