    I was happy to see Marira Frontlines this week but after playing it I can safely state that this is the worst Frontlines map of all. Terrible visibility, unbalanced capture areas, too many choke points with no flanking opportunities & only 3 capture areas. Whoever wins the centre cap point at the beginning and it's all over.

    I'd say that Marita is a terrible map overall, in my opinion. YouTubers were hyping it up massively, but I should have remembered that these are the same YouTubers that loved the temporary Grind mode, as well as maps like Metro and Lockers back in the day. Linear infantry chokepoint-filled maps are incredibly popular, and it's quite fair that many people like such maps ... but I'm the sort of person who'd pick Armoured Kill over Close Quarters any day of the week. 

    So, the wait for Al Sundan continues ... and then I'll ignore the Metro remake and hope that the Pacific maps have more of that combined arms warfare that I've always loved from this series, even if the vehicles mechanics in BFV are the worst of the series.


    I agree.

    I will admit to enjoying Metro, however, that was playing on a clan server that had active admin's that did it right.

    When can we expect Duos to return? Every time I find a squad, someone leaves and we're left outnumbered 9 times out of 10

    I'm hoping we'll have an update on the progress of fixing the visual artificating that is preventing Al-Sundan on Conquest from coming to BFV this week. Or even an ETA.

    Would be neat to have an Al Sundan, Hamada, and Aerodrome playlist for conquest a week after it drops(so we can get the standard Al Sundan only playlist). Just saying, could be fun. Like a Grand Operation, only you don't have to play 40+ minutes to get to the best game mode. Plus dessert tank skins can be useful.
