I would like to suggest some changes to the spotting system with in BFV. I've come from BF3, Bad Company, BF4 and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one; never really felt annoyed or irritated by anything that was a part of the franchise until now.
I feel there needs to be, at the very least, 2D spotting for all players on the minimap and a red dot on the map when you are in close proximity to an enemy firing their weapon. I am irritated to no end that I cannot spot an enemy for my friends. "I'm down, they're over there by that (bunker, house, tree, hill, etc). Which (bunker, house, tree, hill, etc)?" A simple 2D spot and a red dot on the map would alleviate this, not having it makes teamwork based on simple verbal communication near impossible. I cannot enjoy the game with friends as much as I used to and that saddens me. The game is ok if you're playing solo but this inability know what's going on around you makes team play very difficult. I am not suggesting BF4 style 3D dorito spotting but something that will meet half way.
GAME FLOW FEATURES
I am referring to the automated entering and exiting vehicles animation. I head shot an enemy climbing out of his tank a few days back and I thought that sucked. Yes you could argue that it's realistic to have these animations but this is a game, there was never a need for these animations in the past so why do we need them now? I feel they break the flow of the game completely; fast paced action to a nonchalant animation I cannot control. There does appear to be some inconsistencies within the game regarding this feature, almost every vehicle has an enter, exit or change seat animation apart from the rhib boat and change standing position in the landing craft on Pacific Islands. It actually feels good to enter a vehicle immediately, game pace continued and for a split second it felt like an old school BF game. Maybe I want to get into those close quarters fights with a tank as an engineer and steal it from them when they jump out. It's not realistic at all but it was great quick thinking fun. What's happened to the famous Jeep Stuff? All of that has been removed with the addition of these animations.
Having the option to do these things is what made the BF franchise fun for me. I feel as though between BF4 and BF1/V a deliberate effort was made to remove all of the features that made previous titles fun, it's all work and no play. Maybe there's a small amount of pining for the old days here, I do miss watching the likes of PonyLion, StunGravy, Chaboy, Azzy, Neebs Gaming, JackFragz, Matimi0, LevelCap, etc all collaborating, having fun but also PTFOing. Maybe the world of gaming has changed and it's not what it used to be but I feel that changing a tried and tested formula isn't always a good thing for the majority. Perhaps I am in the minority group that dislikes the changes, I really don't know. All I know is the game feels different and I miss the fun I used to have.
