    I like the attrition system. Even though bad players die faster....statistically they also have bad accuracy so this does punish bad players and challenges good players as well.

    I commented on his video as well. No offense to Level or anyone that shares his views but it all just sounds like whining. The entire perspective is someone wanting to run solo and still be amazing, taking out entire flanks like Rambo or whatever nonsense. The thing is, players can still do that.
    Resource management isn't exactly complicated, especially with the prevalence of ammo on the maps, but everyone is acting like it's the end of the world. If these people are so awesome then pick up someone else's weapon and keep going. It should be no big deal if you're good at the game, right? Or maybe plan for the inevitable ammo issue and change your routes, be more careful with your shots, etc.

    The skills required for prolonged solo play have changed. Adapt and overcome.

    Battlefield has never been "just a shooter" but even if it was... one thing almost every shooter has in common is resource management via ammunition, grenades, and/or consumables.

    Back to Levelcap specifically. BFV is a perfect opportunity to revive his Squad Up series.
    Personal preference maybe but those were much better than any of his solo vids.

    DICE needs to get rid of the arm animation popping up every time ammo is picked up. Just play a resupply sound. No need to hold up ammo pouches in front of our face every 5 seconds.

    I wholeheartedly agree, the animation is not my cup of tea and why do loose rounds pop out all over the place every time that you resupply?

    DICE has recently announced that they have dialed back the attrition system, so you can all chill out now. You'll start with more ammo, be able to carry more max ammo, and you start with a medical pouch right away. Sounds like worthy changes to me.

    Dice's statements serve only to reassure themselves that they haven't destroyed Battlefield. They know it's a train wreck but to admit it would make them look like idiots.. so they'll go down with the ship and blame it all on the players.

    Dice.. delay the game another 3 months and fix it.. and while you're at it, fix that nightmare of a UI that somebody thought is "new and innovative". You know.. just go copy BF4. Everyone will be happier.

    How about they don't copy BF4.
    I'd rather the game work at launch instead of waiting a year for it to be fixed. I'd also like the weapons to actually be different instead of all being variants of the same thing.
    And of course, I'd like to not have premium split the community.

    He was talking about DICE copying the BF4 UI not copying BF4' buggy launch which DICE hasn't repeated in any game after BF4 since they learned from that mistake.

    Actually I only just noticed the random shells appearing in BF1 after a pouch resupply. Never noticed that before in 1000hrs of play.

    Animation might have to be there to make sure you really are resupplied, I tend to get noise bugs ever so often where I hear the resupply sound among others, think I've gotten ammo though it never happened. Call it PTSD and it's a feature.

    While that's great and all... Is the word attrition still being used to describe the mechanic? Get it outta here!

    I enjoy carrying less ammo and I never ran out during the alphas.

    Ultimate troll from DICE - make a first person SHOOTER and not give you bullets.

    I know right?

    I guess we should be thankful we're not spawning with melee only lol

    They've got Battle Royale for that rubbish.

    Some guys have to be the clay pigeons. Sort of like the extras in war movies where their only screen time is getting blown up or shot. It makes it feel more like total war.
