What was the reasoning for adding planes to Fjell?

Just to farm infantry or what? Would have been a better map without any kind of bombers, or planes of any kind, just a pure infantry map would have been better.

    Probably to avoid the claim of being too infantry-focused as a game. I understand the need of adding planes, and I agree, but I question the need of giving out 11 planes on that map. They said somewhere that the new Greek location (which, as I learned, supposedly only consists of one map) will focus on aerial combat, which means it will be Crete and which means that we get another map with likely 11 planes.

    It was pretty good dogfight map good for level up fighters. For infantry farming, Breakthrough mode is better but with the AA buff, good luck.

    Not when the enemy has a stuka with cannons and you're dead in 2 seconds, and most other idiot teammates grab bombers as well and not fighters to help take out the enemy planes, that's about how every match goes.

    I think it would be OK with just fighters, but the bombers are annoying as they can easily just carpet bomb objectives and corridors with ease, especially as the AA positions on the map are quite restricted in terms of where they can shoot.

    How bad are you as a fighter pilot? Just fly up high, dive down and strafe the bomber to death in a single pass. It's called boom and zoom. Works every time.

    My point is, yes, people can jump into bombers, but they can also jump into fighters. Dogfighting exists.

    If however air travel makes you throw up for some reason, you can always just panzerfaust bombers out of the sky....

    Because you have plenty of ”players” who love just to sit in their stukas and ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ spawns. That gives them much XP and since almost all players in planes give *** about other planes that is why.

    Tried that, got squished as it fell out of the air. I was... not sure what to say actually.

    You aren't going to out evade a fighter in a stuka or bomber, or shoot them down unless you have the cannons unlocked on the stuka, so you're saying you can easily take on 2 fighters? Doubt it.

    Planes on Fjell are freaking fantastic! It's the map design for infantry that sucks. It really needs to be redesigned.
    One of the best things on Fjell is flying around the 3D terrain/mountains/hills/dips/etc... Fjell and Hamada are excellent for flying because they offer a much better chance for using defensive tactics. I love it when I have a fighter on my six, and I do some fancy flying around the mountains and then I hear that satisfying sound of an explosion as my pursuer crashes into the ground.

    I love the number of planes on Fjell, the whole round is full of flying action and it is my favourite dogfight map with all the terrain.

    Feels a bit like Monte Grappa, but that map was a lot better with the bunkers and better open layout.

    And it is not that easy to bomb on Fjell with the Terrain, current flying mechanics, AA and all the planes in the air.

    Historically my least favorite map on any bf title is the infantry only one. Im completely biased so personally i love the addition of planes on fjell. It's actually the only map i have fun using the fighter planes on.

    Good times trying to maintain air supremacy on that map.

    Would have been better if there was a flag or two that could be captured by planes because otherwise it's just two separate games taking place on the same map.

    Fjell is a low effort, thoughtless map. DICE added the planes in an effort to spice up an awful map.

    My guess.. to empty servers fast. Take the planes out entirely and the map would probably be not too bad. Getting farmed by some no skill crud just spamming the pin and getting 70+ kills a round is just DICE's way of sticking it's thumbs further into your eye sockets.

    Fjell with no planes and Devastation with no tanks would be great infantry only maps.

    I don't understand why people that dislike planes an tanks play Battlefield while there is CoD and lots of other infantry only games ...

    Not every maps needs planes and tanks 1 or 2 just need infantry quite simple really not rocket science
