Anybody heard/read anything on Friendly Fire? Personally I prefer FF on by default. I feel it adds to both realism and the skill ceiling.

    They'd never dare have FF on on regular servers.

    One of the best mine memories of BF1, was laying mines behind our advance into the zeppelin on Giants Shadow and witout having jiggled once prior the full tank ahead of me pulls a straight reverse. My most up close 5 man kill ever, well 6 really.

    Oh yeah, I started in hardcore.

    Probably won't see FF coming back to Battlefield outside of Hardcore ever again.

    Its just too huge of a tool for trollers and people that get great amusement out of actively trying to ruin the game for other players.

    Add in a punish system. 3 TK's and kick ... OR ... longer spawn times that accumulate over time. FF on by default was the original BF setup and we had punish system with longer spawn times.

    Just sad that a game has to be gimped because players want to mag dump.

    Hardcore in BF1 have 5 TKs and kick.

    Hard Core also wasn't in at release in BF1 and when it did come out was totally effed up. So that doesn't bode well for BFV.

    really hoping for a good version of hardcore in this game, along the lines of bf3 and 4 - friendly fire is one of the best features of HC for me, it just adds that extra level

    It's also a good way to cut down on grenade spam.

    People will deliberately kill you if you are trying to enter a jeep/vehicle they want. Do you really want that?

    Hope it won't be on by default, i don't mind having it as a server option but not on by default, will ruin the game for casual gamers

    The skill player should always win. Not give the noobs weapons to fight skill players. Skill players like a challenge, not fight people that play likes noobs. BF4
    It seems the more BF advances the farther back I'm going to go. Like reinstalling BF2. Something is missing from the games. So yeah FF on and anything else that makes the game more challenging vs run and gun with head cut off.

    No because you can but punished for teamkill, there are a lot of possibilities.

    It was always a hallmark of battlefield games, teamwork and cooperation.
    Choosing not to shoot your buddy in the back of the head was usually a good idea, so people wouldnt do it.

    Now people just run around spewing out dynamite and blowing it up without hesitation, or spraying an alleyway with full auto fire... A real step backwards.

    Part of me wishes it was in. I just don’t trust trolls though.

    I do think it should be on for the squad call ins though. I think these are used without thought and it’s lame. Trolling is avoidable if a warning is given for the area to friendlies.

    So what would prevent someone from TKing you over an over again, and once they're kicked or hit a long respawn timer, from quitting and hopping back in to continue? There are no admins or even true dedicated servers, they're all cloud servers that generate when needed and shut down when empty.

    Also, how would that effect squad reinforcements like Artillery Barrages and V1 Rockets? Basically they're be useless, because they'd stop your own team's advance as much as the enemy's. Secondly, AP mines planted on every single resupply station. Now you have to worry about your teammate's mines killing you too?

    It's always easy to say you want whatever feature, but if you think about the consequences of those features they might not be such a good idea.
