We want to be able to choose a team at least at the start of the round ... after that remove the option... and have it at the start of the next round again ...

    You may have noticed that faction switiching in Firestorm is only cosmetic.

    Not sure why, but something tells.me that someone only wants to play as Germans.

    I may be wrong but.....

    The good news for now is that on the breakthrough/conquest mix servers named Bombastic fantastic something you can sort of chose your faction:
    It will keep you in the same faction you originally join for all maps outside of Arras, so if you want to play B109 G2 like me you want to join as axis on either Panzerstorm, Hamada or Twisted steel or as Allies on Arras

    Because there is basically no faction in BR. You simply pick cosmetics' variations to wear.

    Agreed! But I still can't see the problem with letting me choose a side at the start of ANY match/round. Why is this unbalance ??? Were is the problem? And NO No team switching in the middle of the round ... ok agreed ! Next round we choose again .. and so on.. ALL HAPPY CAMPERS !

    I was prepared to disagree, but I can see where you're coming from. I'm not sure if that would be the best option though - at the moment some sort of team shuffle is definitely needed, but whether team switching at the end of rounds would make that better or worse I'm not sure. I get it if you want to play as a specific faction, but I think a decent amount of the time it would be more for getting on the team which is doing better.

    Tbf, at least IMO the German customisation is a lot cooler. Maybe it's less accurate, but damn does my Assault look cool with the Fjell camo Valkyrie set and Silver Dagger helmet, and the Hades helmet is arguably my favourite helmet item in the game (idk why lol, it just looks cool).

    I like to play germans win/loos so if I can't , then I will not spend money on cosmetics that I will be using only half of the times... If I don't enjoy playing as a specific faction I will no't play ... and I really want to play the game.. I enjoy it some times ....

    Well unfortunately unless you're on Xbox or have a friend on the German side you will have to either play the faction you're assigned or quit the server to try another.

    On the linear modes, certain maps will get a reputation as being easier for either attackers or defenders. If you allow picking a side, a lot of players who know the maps will pick the side that gives them an easy win or a chance to buff their stats. It would make match making even worse than it is now.

    Yeah it when vehicles are released I can see it now one side would show up to fight and the other side would be ready when they release the the vehicle for their side a week later. You shouldn't really look at sides being choose at that screen but the fact that you have 8 different looks you can choose for a every man for them selves game mode.

    To be honest, I prefer things when campers are unhappy.

    out of all characters from the books you chose Julius Heide...you should've gone with Porta.

    When it comes to the op: nope. bad idea. would raise even more complaints methinks.

    The problem is DICE seems to 'balance' the round before you load into it, hence why will still get an imbalance of numbers even at the start of the game. To swap sides you would need to do it before you have loaded into the next round to allow the 'balancer' to do its thing -whatever that is.

    This is the extension of my thought process. I wouldn't have put it so eloquently though.

    Then maybe invest 5 seconds into thinking about it again. Imagine all players had the option to choose sides at the start. What could be the problem?

    Why would you care about something as irrelevant as that in an arcade action shooter?
