As the title said, lets talk about westie and jackfrags. If my memories serves me right then these two were all fanboy of the TTK 2.0 in BF1 (we all know the fact that the TTK 2.0 brought us OP smg08/RSC and many other hand designs).
So I just keep thinking what gun does these "pro/core community members" play, then I jumped into the tracker website and managed to did a quick search and you know what? Westie's profile shows he did not managed to get lvl 150, and the TOP 3 guns he was using are "1. Hellriegel 2. Automatico M1918 Trench!!!!! 3.BAR Storm"
For Jackfrags, hmmm, looks pretty much the same.... TOP 3 guns are "1.MP 18 Trench 2.Model 10-A Hunter 3.Automatico M1918 Trench" (Hellriegel the 4th...)
Lmao, so they were crying for TTK and gun balance and they play the most braindead automatico themselves? what a joke.
Now this time, they have claimed that the "majority of community", but what community? most of the community member DOES NOT living on making youtube videos and their voice were barely heard before.
To wrap this up, I think DICE should not strike the final decision simply based on a few youtubers' opinion (and they are not even close to good players tbh), in stead, using the data the collected from the game and maybe do something like in-game questionaire like other suggested is the right way to keep the game in the right direction.
