    Thanks for the update @Braddock512! But is there any new updates on vehicle body customization? Is there a general date or month they might drop?

    Why is the specilization three of the light tanks broken. I'm talking about the amored piercing round in combination with the autocannon. When combining the autocannon with the APCR round or AP round you do 0 zero damage when you shoot with the autocannon against tanks.
    Why is this even an option in the specilization tree nobody want to choice this option or be at a disadvantage when equiping a combination of specilizations. DICE repair the broken tree because this is just dismissing the gameplay of the light tank! 
    For the Staghoud DICE needs to swap the tulip dumbfire rockets with the AP round now the littlejohn adapter still has the penetrating ability but the staghound can now fight back with the tulip dumbfire rockets when go down the 20MM autocannon. 
    For the Panzer 38T DICE can swap the deploy AT mines with the APCR round. Now the Panzer 38T can defend against infanty but also lay mine traps or go down the right tree and have a more fast tank figher with the KWK 38T L/47.9 cannon and the APCR rounds.

    Yes you read that correct, but I have a hard feeling this was just copied pasted and placed there by accident you know how DICE gets the little details wrong with the game updates...

    It's got to be a mistake, I would expect it to be announced with a bit more fanfare than just a subtle mention in a post.

    Al Soondan removed. Thought it was weird, we haven't even had an announcement about the announcement for it yet.
     
    I'm guessing these Tides of War were written and programmed a long time ago because they're still calling Mercury, "Crete" and one of last weeks assignments didn't count ammo crate passive resupply.

    My apologies, y'all. 
    The Confluence page for this week wasn't updated - and I directly copied the map list from the page. 

    The OP is now correct.

    Oh damn, got my hopes up for Al Sundan there!

    Couldn't care less about the vehicle skin and Bombastic Fantastic. Really poor reward once again.

    I guess Marita Domination is going this week too. Oh damn again, I really enjoyed it!

    Please excuse the repost, but just after posting a new ToW seem's to be the best time to catch you @Braddock512. And considering this weeks reward is a skin it seems relevant. 


    It is interesting that Anthem and Battlefront 2, both EA owned Live Services funded by MTX have all skins available to players through grind. 

    But the Battlefield community has Boins only. I get that the Elite skins have had extra effort with voice lines etc put into them, but why are Epic weapons, clothing etc locked behind a paywall? What makes this community the exception?

    Could you help explain the reasoning behind this difference please? I'm genuinely curious.

    You can get Epic items via Progression (grind), Chapter Rewards, etc. as they come up.
    You just can't buy them with Company Coin.

    Thank you for replying @Braddock512 and I can appreciate that certain items are classed as 'Epic'. 

    However it doesn't explain that in Battlefront 2 and Anthem ALL skins are available via Grind.

    It's no secret that V still has quite severe issues regarding performance and unlike the other titles which reward their communities ongoing loyalty by allowing them to pick and choose what they spend their accrued in game credit on.

    In V we don't get any choice, Dice decide what to give us and they choose when to give it. This is obviously not treating the Battlefield community the same as Dice's other titles.

    I think it would generate some good will from the player base toward Dice which given how rocky V has been so far is no small thing.

    Also given the declining player base and the lack of content giving us something to work towards of our own choosing may give many players a reason to stick with V while Dice try to get the game to a satisfactory condition in terms of content and performance.

    Again I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me about this. It just irked me a little when I found out this isn't standard practice for other EA titles.

    Thank you for your time.

    So any news when Al-Sundan is finally coming to the game? Will it happen with the next big update?

    in the recent weeks the gameplay got from bad to worse.
    camping and MMG BS has skyrocketed and the weapon-balance is still an absolute joke. are these issues even on the devs-team radar anymore?
    the classes are so badly balanced i am surprised if the guys developing them were not allowed to see what the others are doing. how come two classes are so hard-locked into their engagement "zones" and the other two can do as they please with next to no drawbacks? can you please explain this to us mere mortals

    Hahahahaha. The Al Soondan release mistake. Who is running Dice?? One bad thing after another but these are amateur mistakes. If this was my credit score it would have been downgraded from AAA a longggggg time ago. You’re amateurs. Admit it. All your talented staff hit the road and you’re left with a skeleton crew of amateurs and the boss went on vacation for a year. Really, come on community manager, just tell us what the hell is going on over there without all the CYA bs. I think the community has made it very clear that all this amateur work is getting very old and patience with this franchise is wearing extremely thin. Pretty words can’t hide it anymore. What IS the deal??

    i know this is getting stale by now but Braddock is at least trying to communicate with the community. most other DICE employees can't even be bothered anymore. and at the end of the day its not like anyone is really thinking Al Sundan will be available anytime soon.
