I’ve been thinking about playing in tanks and vehicles in old BF games. Up until BF1 repairing meant risking death. An engineer had to get out and fix your vehicle. If you where solo, that meant you.
I understand that people got annoyed when a random would take their vehicle or whatnot if they didn’t have a buddy to sit in the drivers seat during a repair, we’ve all been there.
So now it’s done in the drivers seat, but what is the risk to the player? Maybe increase damage taken in repair state?
Has the gameplay changed so much that something similar to risking death for a repair is no longer acceptable?
Are repairs handled like this in BFV because of a balance issue relating to increased game pace or are players just too soft for those harsher mechanics now?
