Q & A
We hit up some of our devs with questions regarding Firestorm and Chapter 3. (We asked a lot more questions, but you'll have to wait until next week for those answers!) John Stanley, Mattias Hansson, Robert Wyle answered some of the questions below.
  • When will we see an update to the Looting System?
    • JS: 3.1 (Next Update) – There will be an increase in loot spread so that its easier to pick up (improve the issue of stacking). We will continue to investigate other designs to make the looting the best it can be.
  • As the Tides of War Weekly Challenges are tied to Firestorm, what if someone doesn’t want to play Firestorm? Why isn’t there another path/option to get ToW XP?
    • JS: This is our brand new royale mode and the challenges serve as a great way to introduce you to the mechanics of Firestorm. To complete the Week's Challenges, there is a track which allows for minimal Firestorm play:
      • Earn 1,500
      • Earn 30,000 score in any game mode
      • Kill 30 enemies in any game mode
      • Heal yourself or your squad mates for 1000 health
  • Why is the XP so low for Firestorm?
    • MH: We've heard your feedback and agree with you. We're looking at balancing this in one of the upcoming updates.
  • Would you ever make Firestorm a night map?
    • MH: No plans right now, but that sounds like an awesome idea!
  • Will you be adding scopes/attachments to the weapons?
    • MH: This is something that we’re looking into right now, but we’re not ready to share timeline at the moment.

    This game mode is infested with hacking. What's with the Blackout style of hit marker latency? Bullet sponging to the max, yet it only takes 2 hits to die. A tank can only kill a player with 5 direct shots, yet everyone has anti tank weapons and they only take 2 to 3 hits to take a tank down?

    You play the regular modes like DM, Conquest... ect, and you can kill a guy no problem..... Firestorm is no better then COD's Blackout. 8 shots to kill a guy? Really? A tank takes 6 direct shots to kill a man...... LOL!!!!!!

    this game is so flawed what happened to the ribbons and other in game stuff. also why is it, that when i play dice and other gamers just can't play without cheating? start banning the ones who edit the game just to be an ****.
    not happy with this game :(

    Hoping the currency comes sooner rather than later. Might actually start getting new customisation in the game.
     
    EDIT: Also good to see some Q&A going on. I hope it is a continued trend.

    So i wrote a super long comment in one of the other firestorm threads with a lot of feedback and what i dislike about firestorm but now that thread is gone. Did it get absorbed into this thread or did it just get deleted?

    Is there anyway to complete firestorm with out getting killed so fast in this game? EA really is bad with these games, thinking oh people want this and they do it, but don't think on other players that can't measured up with others, I love this game but really hard for someone that is hearing impaired, can't hear anything in the game with good players. I'm upset with this game but trying really hard. Of all other missions they came out, I can't get them completed only two out of them all.
