Morning folks -

For those loading up Firestorm today, a note that we have removed Duo from the rotation.

Why is Duo leaving?

Duo received an overwhelmingly positive reaction at launch. It debuted during a weekend, and was initially done so only as an early first look at the mode. Duo was originally designed as a limited time offering similar to Grind and Rush, and featured as limited time content in Chapter 3.

When Duo was first removed, you told us that you wanted to see it come back and we were happy to support.

Since then, we’ve seen more folks jump back into Squads mode, with less preferring to Firestorm it up in Duo - so we’re going to get back to the original plan today and we’ve disabled it’s matchmaking.

Will Duo return?

As with other limited time modes, we never say never. We're confident that we'll see it again!

Limited Time Gamemodes

Similar to Firestorm, the core Battlefield experience receives plenty of rotation of temporary modes like Grind, Rush, Squad Conquest, and soon - Outpost.

We’re going to look at ways to ensure that you all have the opportunity to enjoy these modes after their initial availability, without compromising the matchmaking experiences for players who’d prefer to stay with the base game modes.

This is something we’re exploring as part of the development of Private Games which you can read more about here. We’ll keep you updated on that as we build out the feature via Community Broadcasts like this.

Please do let us know what you think below,

Freeman

    I hear a lot of players complaining that it takes forever (5+ mins) to get matched into a FireStorm game. Perhaps this is due to a low player count and DICE needs to limit Firestorm to just two game modes in order to speed up matchmaking.

    Duo's was the only game mode I played. I only play with my cousin on ps4. We'll definitely not be playing solo or squads. I hate squads because 90% of the time the other two guys go off on their own and get killed and we eventually get ambushed by a full squad. Duos was perfect.

    I've tried to to stick with this game but all these limited time game modes and various bugs still in the game make me want uninstall it. That's why the player counts are low. Not because duos wasn't good. But because you rushed out an unfinished game. 

          Amen.

    Very bad decision. Duos was great when you have 1 friend who play BFV.

    I do not know what you think but in the battlefield community NO.

    - Now we understand why every time they are less in this community, due to your mistakes .... ERROR + ERROR + ERROR

    (IN THE COMMUNITY WE WANT BATTLEFIELD MODE DUO, FOREVER)

    NOT TO ACTIVATE MODE DUO, NEVER PURCHASE A BATTLEFIELD AND ... We are many, more than you imagine, who think the same.

    ** YOU SHOULD KNOW MORE ABOUT PEOPLE AND LISTEN MORE TO THE COMMUNITY, DO NOT TAKE US MORE THE HAIR ... AS ALWAYS **

    -I hope that with this I will recap you that the money is put by the community, we are the client and the one who pays the games, and the money makes you 

    keep working ... DUO MODE ACTIVATED NOW, and stop reraising us.A GREETING .

    You give it to us and then you take it away. The community voice their opinion and they almost universally love it and it is widely regarded as the most enjoyable game mode for Firestorm. Then you decide to take it away again.

    I must say I'm gobsmacked - I don't know what is going on at DICE but you're dropping the ball so frequently that it is alarming. Are the player numbers that low so soon after FS release that 3 modes can't be supported? That's alarming too.

    Are you trying to kill the game early on purpose because you're doing a brilliant job so far?

    Stop with this BS just leave it. Correlation doesn’t mean causation, just because there are more people who drown when people eat more ice cream doesn’t mean that ice cream is causing more people to drown.  Just like it doesn’t mean that people don’t like duo and want squads because you see more traffic there. Ask yourself could it be that people may only be going to squads more because they have more of their friends going online to play in bigger groups than in the past where they only maybe had one friend on a the time, and did want to play with randos who don’t have mics to chat. Start adding new content instead of taking it away. Make a new map already. PUBG has 4 maps. Get your **** together DICE
