    Tried it and can confirm my suspicion that tanks make it a joke mode. It will fail unless they drop tanks.

    when playing with organised teams tanks are a null-factor. to put it in perspective: in a comp match the tankers normally get less than 10 kills while the infys get in average about 20 each. mortar support, at assault, tank hunter tank... its not an easy life for the tankers... and these tankers are for sure not bad. it goes so far that certain ones already distance themselves from the mode again. what a tank is good for is to attract enemy attention... but that's about it.

    of course a tank is very powerfull if u let it free roam. but as good players know that they won't let it do just thst and its really not hard to hold a tank back. it's comparable to the heavy bomber in the base game. of course if everyone is just complaining but not actually doing anything about it, it's gonna take advantage. but it's rally not thst big of an effort to take it down. the only one to blame when a tank is dominating is yourself or rather your team as a whole. if u want to blame yourself or your team mate is up to you. regardless the tank in incursions is for sure not op...

    It's a distraction that completely takes away from the infantry focused skill-based gameplay that you would expect in a competitive mode. It's a bad gimmick. Serves no purpose other than for DICE to remind everyone that Battlefield is a game with vehicles. Adds nothing positive to a competitive mode such as this.

    Reminds me of elite kits in Domination and TDM. Yawn.

    with the difference that elite kits actually dominate these modes rather than just being a distraction. an elite kit in incursions wouldn't get sub 10 kills and die equal amount of times. it would get like 30 kills in one half time being in the right hands.... not even close to be comparable.

    It's pretty comparable. If you had a competent team in TDM/Dom you could run gas and keep the kits to the outside of objectives (or in the case of TDM, keep them from running amok at least). Vs teams that can't coordinate both the elite and tank can run free and destroy, so basically it all boils down to having to waste energy on keeping the cheese elements irrelevant. Not a fan at all, I would have a lot more fun if it was strictly infantry and I know a lot of other people would too.

    Just dropped a 50+ kill round and 90% of my energy was still focused on keeping the enemy tank away. Not a fan.

    Had my first wee game on the PS4 last night. Are there limited lobbies for the games? I imagine 4 minute waiting times will put a lot of players off. Also, is Incursions available on PC through the main game or is still a separate client? I honestly think this game mode will bring a good few players back. I loved the pace and teamwork involved despite John Rambo'ing it with 4 randoms!

    Somehow won a game where my team had 3 players vs 5 enemies and we were down 4-1 in points at one point too. Guess the enemies got lazy and thought they had it in the bag. Nope, we won 8-4 lol.

    Yep lol. I was pretty mad when my teammates left too but I started to believe it was possible to win after a couple squad wipes in a row. I think the other team did the old Overwatch scrub thing where they just trickled in one at a time instead of working as a squad making their numbers advantage pretty meaningless. I ended with 51 kills. Their entire team had 49 total lol. I won 9 out of my 10 placement matches.

    Wow were you playing solo?

    Yeah trickling in was the most aggravating thing in Overwatch. Its so logical too that 1 v 5 = death but people keep trickling in without thinking.

    Yeah I played every match solo. I'm sure I had some decent luck on my side, though at minimum I earned that 5 on 3 win lol.

    Good! I got the same rank, but I won 8/10. But I was playing with someone. You have been lucky by playing solo. For me solo was one of the most BF infuriating experiences I ever had. Also you have a lot of try hards and clans on this mode, so better play it with another good player instead of expecting something from randoms.

    Yeah it's all tryhards. Makes sense given it's a ranked competitive mode. Probably half the players on each team in my games have been 2+ K/D players. Goes with the territory. I'll play regular BF1 when I want to stomp everyone. I just wish when people would pick a class that can revive that they'd actually revive. They've been mostly competent otherwise.

    the fun is gonna start now, good luck winning when your up against 4 comp players :no_mouth:

    In theory if there were enough players playing and the matchmaking worked well it would be a battle to win every match. 50-55% win % would be the norm at all skill levels. So far though I haven't seen many players that can keep up. A couple pretty high KD and KPM players have been in my matches but I still won those matches. The match I lost was vs a bunch of average players really, I just had a team that was out of sync which is gonna happen.

    As long as the matchmaking is kind enough to give me a couple decent players when it puts me against 4 comp players it should at least resemble something that is fun. 4 vs 1 though and I'll probably start shouting at my monitor with my mic off.

    Okay so i just played my first three games of incursions and found it to be fun-ish, but hardly competitve in any sense of the word.

    I didnt even understand the game mode properly and our team steam rolled through 3 games without ever losing a sector.

    Did the better players just stop playing after not liking the experience. I think also limiting the number of players jn a party to two was a huge mistake. Im sure its temporary but why have it at all.

    It could be the fact that I was using the mp18 experimental and then my first love, the Sweeper, but I was absolutely mopping the floor with people using either. Went 61 - 10 in three games which shouldnt happen. Is the level of competition that low?

    I think I only ever got resupplied twice in three games, in one game the guy with the spawn beacon didnt put it down . But my buddy was reviving and healing as trench surgeon.

    Overall, Id say it's meh. Not un-fun but limiting two players per party saps a lot of fun out of it

    that would be nice of course but I doubt its gonna happen.

    there's a ranking system.. ur not gonna be matched against the best in your first games. there are very good players playing the game... no worries.
    also the party limit is not two... its three (for now). and will be increased soon.

    The more "meh" reactions i see, the more I know Incursions is one of their biggest wastes of time and resources.

    it was alright but not really any more fun than just slapping down 5v5 players onto a small slice of a retail conquest map with the retail kits along with SL-only spawn would have been.

    And ...it feels like its been in the "not really being worked on too fast" stage for a long time.

    It was developed with BF2018 in mind. Its in an alpha stage. Why is it that 99% of people are capable of comprehending this but youre not... Don't answer its a rhetorical.

    Yea, because that justifies wasting so much time and resources on it...

    Here or the Bfront forums, all you see are mental gymnasts telling themselves what they want to hear.

    Carry On.
