    It's all garbage, why not have the requirements be something that happens during game play of that class(some do). Who's bright idea was it to have one classes unlock be dependant on playing a different class.

    Same goes for weapon assignments, you guys have your head up your you know whats. I refuse to bend to your will and play your dumb forced playstyles in my limited weekly play time.

    Unfortunately this means I can't use guns that I bought the dlc for, at this point you might as well lock maps out too and create challenges for that.

    You guys don't listen anyway because we're still waiting on a battle pack progression revamp(among other things), but you want us to buy them now so I get why you pretend you're working on it. You guys make the right move implementing things, then drop the ball on how they work.


    Thanks for ruining a great franchise one step at a time, see you on the battlefield...

    Honestly my mind boggles how they sign off on this insanity interanally.

    Actually, that explains a lot...

    Pure comedy gold.

    Two challanges in Dependable Veteran and Healing Hands Basic are either severely bugged or make sense what so ever. It says to only Heal 10 different Squadmates but progression will only count from a single game making it nearly impossible to complete. In one life, kill 5 enemies with an elite class (Dependable Veteran). I've used all elite classes except the trench raider and went above and beyond what was required and my progress was not counted.

    I think the elite 5 kills one life is just a visual thing cause i got the perk after doing 4/6 with the 5 kill staying as not done.

    I have never posted here before, but after playing last night, I felt like I should throw my two cents in. I am a consistent BF1 player, and was a consistent BF4 player before that. I have a dedicated squad that I play with each week (on Tuesday nights), and I do not play outside of that. The nature of these unlock requirements means that in order to get the assignments and weapons I want (not even considering unlocking the ones I don't care about), I have to play about a month's worth of games purposefully poorly, using some of my least favorite gear and not helping the team. These past two weeks have not been fun, and it'll be 2 more weeks before I can play to win again, since I am only about halfway to unlocking the things I want to use. Please help me out. I am a Premium member. Can't I just have the content? I'll still play consistently. Grinding unlocks like this feel like my time is not being respected.

    For this dlc they've finally changed the in a round bs. If you complete the requirement in a round it will stay completed (though sometime it will bug and say you haven't later but that's just visual error; you have done it)

    Challenge #1 Destroy 10 Tanks on Amiens
    Challenge #2 Perform 25 Melee kills on Argonne Forest
    Challenge #3 Perform 100 Shotgun Kills on Ballroom Blitz
    Challenge #4 Perform 5 Multi-kills on Monte Grappa
    Challenge #5 Perform 50 Headshots on Nivelle Nights
    Challenge #6 Kill 25 enemies with debris

    What do any of these challenges have to do with playing for a Medic specialization? Why couldn't these challenges be more directed towards how you play as a, oh I don't know, A MEDIC? You know maybe getting revives, healing teammates, using self-loading rifles, etc. I know you wanted to add longevity to your game, but good god. Mine as well just not even do the 50 headshots challenge because every single server with Nivelle Nights on it has 0 people playing.

    Edit: Checked for Nivelle Nights again. There's one dude playing on one of like 30 or 40 servers. Cool.

    I am doing this challenge. I honestly wish I had never started as its been one of the most painful experiences of my gaming life. Nivelle is a non starter as no one ever plays it when I check the server browser.

    Its 5 kills with debris not 25 as you states. I have 2 more and thats challenge completed. I will not be attempting another until they seriously reduce the effort required. The amount of hours I have put into this one specialisation is disgusting. My KD is a total mess for the last few days as I have given up on any real expectation of actually ptfo and trying to win as I attempt to achieve these arbitrary challenges that as you have said have literally nothing to do with being a medic.

    Homestly my mind boggles how the devs management team signed off on this.

    Got the 2 plane kills with the MG15na Low Weight on Galicia. It does useful damage actually.

    Galicia is usually foggy so the planes has to fly low, on the other maps like Sinai the pilots fly too high up to hit.

    So basically all feedback was ignored and service assighment was released as they were in their first interation? Good job.
    Just move all of these assighments to dogtag and codex sections and change them to simply:
    first class-restricted perk - play X hours of that class, 10 seems okay to me
    second class-restricted perk - get X points for this class, 50000 seems okay to me
    all other all-class perks - get X kills for X class, like:
    bayonet training - 200-300 kills as assault
    hasty retreat - 200-300 kills as medic
    inconspicuous - 200-300 kills as support
    quick unspot - 200-300 kills as scout
    Everyone happy and who are really want some grinding would still receive it.

    Yes, this right here. No more gimmicks DICE. Reward players for playing correctly, Not dragging their team down trying to power through some stupid perk.

    Btw I can also confirm that "Destroy 2 vehicles with Anti Tank Grenades" can be done by killing two horses. :open_mouth:

    2 hours trying to get one dbris kill. If I could swear on this forum these morons who have implemented this would be getting some choice words. I have not played this game correctly in 5 days trying to unlock a medic specialisation

    I say don’t have the unlocks or don’t make us do things that take us away from the objective. So it’s TDM and I’m trying to get kills with a syringe??

    "headshot 5 cavalry riders with single-action rifle". For some reason its still 0/5 and im pretty sure that i've manager to shoot couple riders with headshot. 1 with Martini Henry and 2 with Russian 1895 sniper. Have i understood single-action rifle wrong or is this assignment just bugged? Would really appreciate if someone has tried to do this and how did you do it and does it count kills?

    You have to kill the rider with headshot, not sure if you can kill ride off horse and it counts.

    They were rider both time. Thats why i'm confused. Have i understood single-action rifle wrong or this assignment is bugged? Interest to hear if someone managed to do this and how?

    Game could have been great but dice just on ruining it. Perks are crap. Why make a casual more casual. Inconspicous is ridiculous. If it isn't easy enough to camp in rooms or bushes now when I do the right thing by sending a flare up for my team, my position is exposed but some chump with that bs perk is invisible. May as well give the guy a jet pack. As a medic what the hell dobi have to do with mill bf1 does by having debris fall on them, 50 headshots on Neville nights, no one even plays that map anymore. That's a scout thing. And at that make them do 50 headshots at other punk scout snipers 300 plus Meters away

    If your gonna copy everything from cod you should have the infastructure to support your game like cod does. Cod almost no server drops, lag, general bs. Bf1 not so much. I'm lucky if I go 2 hrs without them issues. Btw I'm 25 miles from nyc. If the service sucks here I feel really bad for the guys in Asia and india.

    Personally I'm not going to change my game for nothing. If i happen to need that class at the time so be it with the 'unlocks' My friends on the other hand are hating it. They are so focus and determine to unlock them that it killed my platoon. Everyone doing their own thing no matter if we win or lose. Took the fun out of it for them and me cause i see it in my team and i could just imagine how many more are doing these side missions. For example He wants to do 10 mortar kills on TDM. Really? (You never go full ****-Tropical Thunder) I have more but for me it killed my platoon. Bayonet charge mission? When all you have to do is do a MK side step move. Please, I could hear the raging.
