Seems like you hear a lot of people say they are glad being able to spot enemies is gone because it was "easy mode". Yet we also hear (on these forums) that it is almost impossible to see enemies on BF V maps. I think DICE attempted to fix that issue, but wasn't spotting better?
Someone (JFrags) and watched (without engaging the enemy) while enemy players ran right past him without seeing him. This wouldn't be such an issue if spotting were brought back.
Note: I know in a perfect world, everyone would wear a headset and communicate with voice (ie: "there is a scout/recon on top of the shed at Flag C") but we know this isn't the case, and with console, comms are limited to your squad only, whereas on PC, one can communicate via text, to the whole TEAM (I think even enemies can see everything typed). Plus, on console, the time it would take to type something would be useless. This is why spotting, in my opinion, is necessary in future BF games.
What are your thoughts on these conflicting ideas? "I can't see anyone in BF V!!"
or "Spotting was easy-mode, glad it's gone."
