Re: Specialist and freeclass system is Better than the OLD Class system VIDEO in

@Stew360 just got to ask, did you play those BF's on pc or console?
In the good old days we rented a server and drove it as a clan server. Then we could easily fit 30 guys for practice. You can't be sad that 30 guys can't fit in a public server.
Persistent server could also let your gang slowly join a full public server.
I don't get your reasoning.
Seems like you haven't gotten the full experience in BF, people did more teamwork than in 2042. Ask any of us.
If players played bad one round, they had to change strategy (e.g. not camp) the next round, only possible with persistent server though.

Agree, we had a community and clans. Played on the same rental servers with many of the same players. BF has over time become a game with anonymous players on anonymous servers.

I played enough . I played BF1 Beta for about 30+ hours then the released game for about 8 hours lol .. I played BFV for about 30+ hours also BETA and release .. Even played recently

The only things i liked about BFV was crouch sprint moove , the Slide wich is a bit better than BF2042 wich was similar to BFV in the beta yet DICE " listen " to the so call community and nerf it heavily .. Same goes for what they did to the weapons it was this so call " community feedback " who made them make these totally broken innacurate weapons at launch ... The problem is there is no homogenous BF community .. Everyones are asking totally vastly different things and have worlld appart vision so DICE simply cannot listen " to the so call community " because no matter what they do they will be reprimended for it by a portion of this so call community ..

I played BF4 barely few months ago .. i played BFV few months ago as well lol and i played more combine arms games like Delta force black hawk down , Operation falshpoint , BF2 project reality mod , BF2 , Planetside 1 , Planetside 2 , Frontline fuel war , Original battlefront , and so on and on than most peoples could ever dream off lol

Thats said its not about me here .. i played so far over 400 hours of BF2042 .. I have mastery 40+ to 70+ with 4 specialist .. Mastery 40+ on more than 10 weapons and 5 vehicles Night bird etc.. I play Air , ground and infantry all very well so was i in past games .. And so was i in Planetside 2 wich was heavily inspired by battlefield in terms of gameplay gunplay vehicles control etc.. And we left BF3/4 because of one main issue , it was almost impossible to play as a clan and it was a pain to be in a squad and remain into that squad and this problem still exist today in BF2042 ...

 



Here me playing BF4 in june 2021


 

Here is me playing BFV Recently as well

@Zoikon I’m glad you mentioned this I forgot to write it in my reply that I used to play with a group of 15 players on playstation after BF1 was released. We all used to get into the same server regardless of there being 15 players with the help of the platoon system and the server browser. Sure it would take atleast 5 mins for everyone to get into the game but we did play together on the same team for hours. We had like 3 different squads of 5 on the same team. And I have seen other platoons do the same thing on other battlefield’s too. So @Stew360 point about 20-30 people not able to join the same server is not valid.

I have played " scrim " on private servers but these momments were scarse and rare and was complicated and time consuming to pull off ..

While games like MAG or planetside wich had proper matchmaking/ Platoon forming system where in MAG we could fill a Lobby of 4 squads of 8 up to 32 players and start a matchmaking just like starting a regular matchmaking in any games like Halo BF or COD or whatever games that have matchmaking .. It made things easy hassle free and fun ..

Planetside 2 has a faction system where no matter what your clanmates are in the same faction as you .. So we could be up to 48 players in a platoon with squads of 12 .. So there was no issues at all for us to play toghueter ..

Our experience in BF games with players own servers have been as follow .. Being banned for being to good , Being banned or kick for taking the vehicles the admin or his friends wanted . Being switched from one side to the other for being good , Being auto balanced and our squad of 4 /5 were splitted .. And so on and on ..

I already mentioned we did some Scrim in private servers against other clans but these match were laborious and time consuming just to set up the team , gets everyones in and ready ..

In planetside 2 peoples can jump in and out at any momments

In MAG peoples could join at least up to 32 players to start a matchmaking so it was more than enough and BF need something like this and fast

@Stew360 Battlefield 1 I´ve had many people repairing as support. 5 not so much but it happens. In 2042 it´s just not happening.

@MrJimBFAnecdotes are not representative of anything because from my experience across around 10 BF games ive been " repaired " maybe a dozen time by random players across thousands of hours played ...

 

IF ANYTHING most randoms usually saw me repairing my vehicle and see it as an opportunity to stole my vehicles or pick my gunner friend seat and refused to get out while we were repairing our own tanks or helicopters .Its why planetside 2 is so great for this you can lock your vehicles and kick out undesirable from it 

 

Also in BF2042 i almost always get pick up when an Angel or Falk are around while in past BF medic would run over my death body looking for their next kills and would let me die there .. Support were never giving amo when asked 100 times and with Zero timer on amo trow unlike BF2042 wich suffer from a timer for amo and med crate trow

@dougieeeAgreed, classes created to force player to play it as intended. But what I see is Angel staying far far away at the backline snipping just looking for kill, thx to freeclass system that allowed support specialist to pick sniper rifle.

@Stew360 You missed the whole point of Classes, it was to promote team play and introduce rock-paper-scissors player choices. And every Class had a 'sweet' weapon.

@Stew360 I don´t know man..... My experience is a lot different then yours.. But that is ok! But what do you think about the fact that there are 4 angels next to each other? Kinda ruins the experience for me.
