How did this company screw up and amazing franchise? Why did this company have to try and reinvent the wheel?
I know DICE is owned by EA and for this reason BF games are going to be forever broken and rushed. If EA stepped away and let DICE make a game which fixed the bugs, gun balance, maps, before release then maybe their wouldn't be so much backlash and maybe their sales would be higher, but due to EA's push and demand a new BF game coming out every 2 years has become a broken piece of crap.
The bugs are just limitless, and the way you die from a stray pistol bullet is a joke, the classes are disgusting, why can support have lmg, mmg, and shotguns, when the medics get bb guns, what the hell? how is that a balanced system. why do medics get ripped off? cause that is how it was back in the day? IT'S A VIDEO GAME - doesn't need to be historically correct. Why can snipers shot you in the foot and kill you in one hit? And ...(sigh) i could go on but you get my meaning.
The maps are campers heaven, no need to cap flags when you can stand in one spot and snipe people trying to cap - PTFO doesn't work, people are one men armies, it is very rare you get a team working to cap a flag. If there was a punishment for not capping or defending a flag that would make it a better game. how i mean this is if you haven't tried to cap or defend a flag from being capped in the round, you lose your health for not being a team player.
Players don't care about winning or losing, they only care about K/D so why not award more points to players PTFOing. Say there is 4 people in a squad and they are working as a team, capping and defending, they get the normal amount of points, say there is a 3 man squad, you get the 1.5 x points, 2 man squads you get double the points, and one man squads - try and move them to a squad. if you gave people more points, they would use the reinforcements faster and not have to wait til the end of the round to use a rocket. Also maybe reduce the amount of points you get for reinforcements.
I know that DICE is working hard to fix the issues, but if they held on for 3 months and released the game in the new year, about now, then maybe there wouldn't be such a big backlash. Maybe they were worried about Fortnite, COD, and the other big games and that's why they released their game, but if you worry and rush you just end up hurting yourself.
