One of the thousands of campers you find in this game. Even in Devastation. One of the many today in this map was the typical medic camping with the usual Thompson/Suomi behind corners. Prone. This one used Thompson. I admit this game makes me extremely nervous and toxic especially in chat. In every EU conquest servers i play, 98% of people camp, no matter the map or side. I had an argument with one of those Thompson campers in Devastation, prone behind sandbags in a corner. Cannot repeat here what i told him, but he replied "yes im camping, what should i do? Go out there and get instantly killed?"
This game is a camping abomination. It doesnt even feel like a WW2 game AT ALL!. But an early WW1 game where people were entrenched in their positions all day long. Without ever moving. For the fear to get killed when they peak out. People like the guy above now represents the battlefield community seeing the astronomical amount of campers in this game using extremely high rof guns to have easy kills while they camp. Neither in BF1 campers were this huge and i have more than 800 hours in it.
Why is this happening? Partially is also because of the different audience DICE wanted to attract into this game. they wanted to keep the former Battlefield veterans who love hard stuff, but at the same time they wanted also the new wave of Battlefield players who love easy kills and want easy gunplay, Call of Duty audience, all the Batlle Royale audience et cetera. Remember when they modified TTK was modified because kids started to whine game was too hard? Now we are flooded with people like this. People who never played a shooter in their lives. Or people who played easy shooters where u only have to press the trigger and guns dont even have recoil so easy to use they are. People who dont know what team work is. People who camp because otherwise they get killed. In a map of 64, u have 64 solo players chasing the same flag.
And then extreme camperism is one of the consequences or the nonsensical choices of DICE in the gameplay.
Now to end my post, i ask Dice to give us the custom servers immediately so we can balance the game ourselves. For example by removing MGs, 3x scopes just to mention two of the many things wrong in this game.
