I ask this just to make sure people voiced their opinions. because I feel like it's once again a big waste of development time and resources as this "competitive mode" will die as fast as Firestorm did. Mostly because I feel like majority of BF playerbase wants BF experience they used to enjoy in previous games. While these "alien" modes aren't interesting and do not relate to your regular experince in any prior title. These do not seem to work with BF formula where all types of combat is involved on huge maps with many objectives.
Yet Dice once again wants to push something on us. So show us your opinion or idea. It's not like Dice is going to listen but at least people around will hear and count some points of view.

    To be fair, there are/has been quite a few people who want a 'competitive mode' or at least think BF is/should be competitive.

    Just look at all the 'casual' comments, it's at least inferred.

    I'll play it for Tow but unless it is ground breaking (doubt it), I'll never play it again, bit like TDM really......

    Stil,l those that want it will no doubt enjoy playing a niche game that BF is in danger of becoming.

    hi, I completely disagree with you!!! I play a lot and I am missing competitive mode, modes like domination and squad conquest could give me taste of it but not exactly. I am waiting for 5v5 and rental servers so we can see who is good! I dont think many people will play it but all those who love cometition will play. It is a good idea to have mode like this, plus I dont think it takes that much resources.

    Didn't care about Squad Conquest but I really like it now.

    Didn't care about Firestorm but I think it's a great mode now.

    Bring on the 5v5, the small squad modes  SC 8v8, Firestorm 4 vs everyone play a bit better with V's mechanics than the main large team multiplayer modes. 

    I'm definitely intrigued.

    Yeah I think EA/DICE wants Battlefield to have an eSports game mode. They better crank the server tickrate up to 120hz and fix the positional/directional audio if they don't want to be laughed off stage.

    if i wanted a competitive 5v5 game i'd play R6s or any game that was designed for this kind of gameplay.
    but in BF? i participated in incursion for a bit and then lost interest very fast and indefinitely simply because  for that there are better and cheaper alternatives then BF

    Little reminder about their last 5vs5 attempt:

    Been playable for maybe 3 week, retired with shame one year after 'official' release.

    Let's see how long this new, highly requested, 5vs5 will stand :trollface:

    never asked for it, but if the map design actually works for it, I'll try it out... 

    I remember that I actually REALLY enjoyed Squad Rush back in BC2, every life counts and it was tactical. 

    my nickname used to be just "WizzzeR", but if it wasn't for Squad Rush I wouldn't have stuck with this utterly ridiculously cheesy cringeworthy nickname that I have "Tactical_WizzzeR", and I'll never change it.

    I'll give it a try but 5v5 isn't something I'd normally go for.

    They've done it for marketing and to say "Look, we're releasing 6 new maps for FREE", even though some of those maps are useless maps for a dead mode.

    5v5 would be fine but not at the obvious expense of the core game

    I like 5v5, 8v8 and other more "competitive" but what I think of simply as more classic tactical FPS modes.

    But I'd personally be more interested in it, in a game where the automatic guns didn't feel like crap to shoot.

    Battlefield 1 main game focused on a gameplay type that is basically the opposite of esports. Battlefield 1 Incursions was the attempt to get the esports crowd into the game. Sure, I'm no gaming industry marketing expert, but expecting the esports players to buy BF1 only to play Incursions is like expecting PUBG/Apex/whatever BR players to buy BF V only to play Firestorm.
    This time around Battlefield (V) is a more sweaty game at its core so maybe it will get a chance to be somewhat popular, maybe even to get some new players into the franchise... If DICE team manages to fix most bugs, makes netcode to work properly and consistently and optimizes the game to the level it could be played without stutters even on modern microwaves...

    Enjoyed close quarters in BF3. I'll probably enjoy 5v5 if done right.

    So.... 5 snipers vs 5 snipers?

    No.
    I did not ask for this, nor Operation Supply Drop in BF1.
    But what I have seen ONE THOUSAND requests for is to address the people being able to snipe/tank from their safe-zone (Spawn area) where there is always an Ammo/Med depot as well as Vehicle Ammo/Repair depot.
    The fix is an easy one, take your pick:
    • Give a timer (just like a player has when he/she enters the other team's safe-zone) just extend it to 1 minute (and once you leave there is no going back in).
    • Put all spawns behind hills or use buildings/houses (Map/Terrain dependent)
    It's too easy to fix.
    Point being: There are a ton of things implemented/removed that no one asked for, while there are things that have been requested for several titles and have been ignored.

    It's  marketing.  The suits read the trends.  There is this current buzz around esports and games being aspirational aka being the same game the "PRos" play.  And that's why there is 5v5 and that's why BFV went to this "tactical" gameplay.  Also one can't say I'm not buying BFV because it doesn't have a small squad competitive type mode in it.  

    Plus there is the suit's desire to find a bigger audience for the game because of the high cost of making a AAA game these days. The logic there says if we includes more "features" or "trends" in the game then we will attract a bigger audience.  

    The problem with that logic is ...it's not just  quantity thing.  IT's  quality thing.   just because you release more crap doesn't mean it isn't crap.  That's roughly how I see BF  nowadays.  They trying to do too much and they don't really know where to be.  And they aren't playing to their strengths.  The big combined arms sandbox gameplay.  

    To me they should be making that more fun and fair than ever.  Instead of trying to chase trends and other games so much.  
    Hashtag Firestorm; Hashtag TrendChasers; Hashtag re-hash.
