    Must question the console certification process given the recent issues over there

    Trello board? Finaly! I work as a developer myself and we use Leankit wich is also a canban board like software where our customers can follow the development and fixes for our softwares. Our customers can also join meetings to help us prioritize each card on the board.

    Is this something you have in mind with this? Involve the community and let us help you guys prioritize wich bugs we think is more critical and most annoying? Will all the community have acces to the board, like only look at it of course and not move andy cards around and change stuff?

    This would be an awesome move toward transparency towards the community and I think for a better understanding how much work you guys are doing.

    No, it is weekly challenges that change every Thursday, you complete certain tasks to unlock a new weapon or skin, whatever is on offer that week. Completing the tasks also gives you XP towards the 40 level Tides Of War that runs for 3 months and also unlocks various items.

    Just give up already, this game is not going to be good anytime soon. Just start making new content to older titles when devs were still sane and could produce playable content. BFV is such a big mess it cannot be fixed, so why even bother?

    So you're going to go ahead with this 5 vs 5 garbage. I hope You Tubers ND your game changers destroy you in Videos.

    @Braddock512 So what is that ominous communique? Is this half a page of marketing talk "directly from the dev-team", or is it a substantial insight on each department, what they are working on specifically to improve the game experience in a significant way (complete UI/UX overhaul, crunch time on bugfixes, deep insight on the development of new mechanics, assets and modes for the pacific, changes to visuals and map design to make each map more playable). And when is the release date of that communique? Will it include proper release dates of anything?
    Also is there something else that is presented at gamescom, apart from Metro that the community has no access to? Or is this really all for the second-biggest gaming convention there is?

    Squad Conquest and Team Deathmatch will have more maps than any other game mode.
