    As long you guys indicate somewhere that you intend to keep Duos Mode permanent, then take your time locking down the release date!

    Why is there so little information being released? We've had more news from some guys rummaging through the game files than we've had from any official source.

    This week in Battlefield V should actually read:

    Monday - we're going to tell you what we're going to tell you!
    Tuesday - nothing of substance - this is just padding. You can go to Youtube and see the same stuff every day of the week.
    Wednesday - We're going to list a bunch of issues on the periphery and completely ignore the primary issues because we don't have a solution to them and have no intention of actually addressing them.
    Thursday - Jump through some hoops and you'll get a cosmetic of some sort. Actually, I don't have a major issue with this. Unless it involves Firestorm. Then it sucks.
    Friday - we're going to recap what we told you throughout the week - which was nothing of any real value.

    Copy, paste, repeat each week.

    Personally I'd rather see genuine discussion and engagement, honesty and empathy with the community, and if we can't get that, I'd rather see nothing at all.

    Just a thought on this part. 
    This is a calendar of the week's events. There are daily things that happen every week.
    • Monday - If there's not much going on for the week, yeah, it just says the TWIB. However, when we have blogs, etc., they get included if they're released on Monday. 
    • Tuesday - A good amount of people look forward to stuff like the OIB moments because they like to share their clips, videos, and get the chance to get some BCIW emblem codes for themselves and their friends. 
    • Wednesday - Some of the top issues aren't listed because they're either still in the discovery phase, they are getting a backend fix to address them, or they may require more dev time. We're doing our best to not put stuff on there that isn't solved within 2-4 weeks but is a big pain point within the community. 
    • Thursday - It's been the day for updates or the Community Feedback threads I've been driving. (We currently have 8 or so, and I want to let those marinate before we open new ones). 
    • Friday - For those that missed the beginning of the week because of work, life, whatever and want to catch up on what we've talked about, we created the Debrief. This also, as time and bandwidth allows, includes a Q&A session, and a sneak peek/preview of some of the items for the next week. 

    Additionally, I update this daily with the links to the relevant posts, new items that come up during the week, etc. It's a one-stop place to get the roadmap of the week. 
    You have to think about it this way - if these posts/threads aren't for you for whatever reason, it doesn't mean that others don't find them helpful, informative, etc. 
    I hope my reply gave a better perspective on why we make these threads and the bigger picture that others may benefit from them. 
    Take care and have a great rest of your day!

    Hi,
    there is one community thread which seem to be completely ignored by EA / Dev team:
    https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/comment/1520399#Comment_1520399

    yeah, over 200 pages of it ...
    any thoughts?

    @Braddock512 i do have to say the weekly and Chapter TOW rewards are really not appealing to the community. They seem really plain and boring. I know there's more than enough weapons, tank, planes and gear that can be released sooner than you guys probably planned out to fill these TOW rewards. I'm just saying if we had more authentic uniforms and weapons to work for during the week/ chapter i would feel a little more excited to play but as of now most of us don't feel excited at all.  Just sayin.... 

    Hope you guys try to release good content soon!

    They have 5 new maps coming this summer! Exclusively of 5 vs 5 games...?  But, by the end of summer it look like they'll manage 2 more full size maps. So... by the end of summer the main game will have map parity with BF1 + 1/2 of it's first DLC. Isn't live service great with it's constant steam of new content...

    I wouldn't even count those 5v5 maps as new maps if you can't play them in regular conquest.

    It just really feels like the format is dated and every week is a copy paste job. I'm not saying it is, but it is how it feels. Morale in the community seems to be at an all time low. We have a split between here and reddit. The actual engagement on the hot topics seems to only happen on Reddit if at all. It feels the comms while slightly improving are still fundamentally broken. Things like the 5v5 stuff. Is the demand for that even real? My inner sceptic sees a repeat of co-op coming. 

    In short the divide between the community and yourselves is massive and seems to be ever widening.

    I appreciate that honest feedback and truly take it to heart. 
    I wish I could comment on individual comments, instead of having to comment and quote someone 3 pages ago on these forums. I would love it if the forums had similar functionality to the way the Reddit comment system goes. But that's just how it is. We'll deal with it. 
    And I will work to increase my time here, answering questions and providing information.

    This is the first TOW event that I simply don't care about. I have no interest in Firestorm, and the non-Firestorm path requires 50 freaking kills with each weapon. On top of that, the weekly rewards suck beyond belief! I have no interest in any of them except the weapons, which are still another week off.
    Every single reward for the overall TOW path is lackluster at best. A bunch of burnt skins for weapons hardly anyone uses any more, more gas masks, when there's no gas in the game (that was a cool part of BF1), face paint, etc...
    It's obvious by now that this game will never be satisfying. It's more like a few cool moments wrapped up in a constant barrage of frustration.
