    The gaming industry as a whole work very different from other industries and the problem isn't specific to developers or countries but rather to how their parent companies operate (EA in this case). Rants about a studio in town x or y is useless, if anything its an American trend forced on Dice.
    Keep in mind that thanks to EA releasing BF4 before it was ready that game had a disastrous launch, being clearly unfinished and massively broken. EA directed DICE Sweden to drop everything but repairs to BF4. But eventually (when the repair process wasn't moving fast enough) they brought in DICE LA and took advantage of Visceral's work on BF Hardline to complete the repairs--the two American studios finished the job the studio in Sweden could not. So it does seem that some studios are better at certain things that others. In the case of DICE Sweden it seems that a lot of the old, more experienced devs have moved on in the past couple of years, and the current staff are having difficulties (reportedly with Frostbite) which is why we've seen old problems that were fixed in previous titles resurrected in BFV.

    Much of the problem with BFV is EA keeping DICE on a tight budget, and EA not knowing how to handle Live Service. But there also seems to be a lack of vision at DICE lately, the poorly-designed UI being a good example.

    Again, a lot of this should properly be blamed on EA, not DICE. But that doesn't mean that DICE has no responsibility.

    I remember this as well, i stopped playing bf4 for a whole year until it was working (even forgot it completely). However, the reason things got fixed that time surly can be contributed to more developers and a higher budget rather than town x or studio y. Two studios work faster than one.

    They aren't used tactically, they are either used to farm supply boxes or dropped into dark corners and rubble where they are impossible to see.

    Drunkkze has confirmed that the stealth buff was an unintended change and will be fixed. Prepare to have your cheese taken away.

    I use them tactically. I don't always just drop them somewhere where I think an enemy might run through.

    Oftentimes I'll use them to cover a retreat or my flank.

    Enemy player rushing me? No problem. I'll just run around this corner and leave a present or two on the ground along the way. Even if they notice the mines, it'll at least slow them down so I can make my retreat when needed.

    How are those not tactical applications?

    Of course there are exceptions. Though your usage will not suffer when they are restored/nerfed. I tried them yesterday, got a dozen kills in a short Rush match. Absolutely wrong.

    Is there a way not to let scum bags place them in front of the ammo and health stations? Put some kind of radius around them or something?

    That’s what I did all the long and am annoyed everyone has jumped on the AP mine bandwagon due to the recent buff.

    if thats what you did, then the change should not effect you. I dont' see how you can get so annoyed by them if it never affected your playstyle?
