Should there be an option in Battlefield V to disable character cosmetics from the user's end, for the sake of immersion?
Vote "Yes": Simply put, it would be a client-side option somewhere in the gameplay section of the Options menu to disable multiplayer cosmetic customizations. All player models will be reverted to a default design that would reflect the most historically accurate uniform designs for the factions and classes. This would not only increase immersion, but give players more freedom of choice over their gameplay experiences AND theoretically improve netcode due to a lesser load of items that need to be constantly monitored by your system and the servers.
Vote "No": Keep it the way it is.
Edit: Here is an excellent suggestion from JZRJDC: "I think this option could be improved by designating certain cosmetics as "Historical" and "Non-Historical", so if someone puts kratos facepaint on, it would be"Non-Historical", but if someone wrote something on their knife handle, its "Historical" and would not be blocked by the filter. Also, certain circumstances could change it from Historical to Non-Historical and back, such as a female soldier, which would be non-historical in most cases but historical if the player playing as her also picks a resistance uniform."
