I was thinking what with Battlefront 2 not having Premium and all DLC's free with just cosmetic purchases, BF1 should change now to avoid the inevitable split that will continue to happen with premium only DLC. Personally it wouldn't both me too much if they did give all DLC's free and to compensate all Premium players with Extra Battlepacks per week and other cosmetic changes. Just my opinion and I'm pretty certain the DLC plan is changing for BF1.
Competitive. Everybody is competitive (except Battlefield players aka digital skin collectors) so a comp/ranked/ladder/Matchmaking would bring thousands of players over from other games.
You give the kill to both. It is the only fair and tactically just thing to do. Kill trades SHOULD happen often in situations where you find yourself face-to-face with another enemy and you both have good aim and both have hit the trigger. The fact that it may be perceived as bad netcode or may be upsetting to competitive KD-oriented players ought to be beside the point when it comes to making a game mechanic fun, fair and more tactical.About killtrades, I explained it several times now, but i will give it another shot. Killtrades are naturally existing in war, particularly with high range encounters. However, the natural delay of playing a game on the internet raises an interesting problem: every player thinks that the game he plays is the only reality. But the truth is that the only reality takes place on the server. So what happens if 2 players kill first on their respective screen?
