Stats roll up as well, again like for like no Microsoft to Sony or vice versa.

But there wouldn't be that classic voice saying "Oddball" to start the match...

@ Spyder
Elimination Rainbow Six style, hmm, I'm sure the Devs would have something planned.
The sweet taste of revenge seemed to keep most people on the server in Rainbow Six back when I played that in 2003.
That heart thumping immersion when I was being hunted as the last guy is unmatched.

By the time Zath gets next-gen, it will be 2015 and time for BF5. I'm sure he'll want a PS4 by then, given that all of his AVS brethren will be playing there. Besides, everyone likes having a wingman, even if they aren't very good. You won't be much help to him on the ground with your nerf-o-riffic MK3A1 and no perks, as you promised. wink.gif

Considering I just got a ton of PC games for super cheap (including another copy of BF3 - anyone want the code?), I may have to push it back to 2016!

Zath do you seriously have that much willpower to resist conquering the skies of BF4 on any next gen console while knowing your fellow AVS war buddies are in harms way, giving it their all pouring sweat, blood and guts out on the battlefield?

No doubt about that. Circle strafe is the last thing I needed to learn and I've never figured it out until today.* smile.gif

Ask Dice time again



Quote:
We’ve been seeing questions pouring in from fans who are excited for the launch of Battlefield 4 – now just months away!

In the spirit of keeping our fans informed and Prepared 4 Battle we’re continuing a new series called “Ask DICE,” featuring questions that we’ve received from Battlefield players with answers straight from the development team at DICE. Check back here at the Battlefield blog every other Friday for answers, exclusive info, and more.

Battlefield 4 Multiplayer Q&A
This week we’ll be answering your questions on Multiplayer. From the beginning, victory in Battlefield means working as a team to take down the enemy. Battlefield 4 continues this proud tradition with renewed focus on teamwork and squads.

So without further ado…

Manu_lanza97 asked, “Are there going to be jets in Battlefield 4? What types of jets?”

Battlefield 4 will definitely have jets! We’ll be giving you more information about jets soon, so stay tuned. For now, we’re happy to reveal the Chinese J-20 Stealth Jet – a totally new addition to jets in Battlefield.



R3NAI55ANCEMAN asked, “Is the tower in Siege of Shanghai destroyed by the players themselves or is it set off by the score of the match, like the red-and-white tower in Caspian Border, in BF3?”

Battlefield 4 will feature game-changing destruction on a whole new scale with a concept we call Levolution – this is what you’re seeing when the skyscraper in Siege of Shanghai is destroyed.

The skyscraper in Siege of Shanghai is brought down when players destroy the four main pillars of the building. This means that it can happen at any time in the match.

Levolution happens on all levels from the big like the skyscraper moment to the small like shooting fire extinguishers to distract your enemies so you can easily take them out or cutting the power of a building to blind your opponents so you have the advantage on the battlefield.

These game changing events not only affect the player’s tactics but also the visual identity of the map. And what’s most important, it’s you triggering these things to happen.

R3NAI55ANCEMAN also asked, “How many players can one match have on the Xbox 360 and the PS3?”

Battlefield 4 will support 24 players on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with two additional commanders depending on the game mode. We will support 64 players on PC as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a first for the Battlefield series on console. Battlefield 4 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will also run at 60fps, another first for the series on console. The Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, with also support 2 additional players taking on the role of Commanders, depending on the game mode.

Additionally, squads now consist of five teammates.



Reconer asked, “Can we play as the Russian forces in multiplayer?”

The playable factions in multiplayer are Russia, China, and the U.S.

Gary D asked, “Will there be mortars in BF4?”

Yes, there will definitely be mortars in Battlefield 4! A redesigned, remote-controlled Mortar will allow Support players to give indirect fire support while staying with the squad.

PatchRowcester asked, “What changes are being made to BF4 to encourage teamplay over individual stats?”

One of the ways Battlefield 4 will encourage teamplay is Field Upgrades. The idea behind Field Upgrades is to give individual rewards for squad based team play performance. You earn them through squad scoring such as squad healing, completing objectives with your squad members, squad resupplies, squad repairs, and other squad actions.

Instead of one single specialization in Battlefield 3, you can now pick from different upgrades paths, each containing four specializations. Keep the squad alive, and you will move through the accumulative upgrade path. However, if your entire squad is eliminated, you will lose some of your progress.

We’ve also seen some questions floating around about suppression, so we’ve decided to shed some light on it.

Suppression has been refined in Battlefield 4. There will be no more suppression in close-quarters combat, and LMGs will have beefed-up suppressive fire abilities allowing you to pin down your enemies.

Suppression also causes visual impairment, while being suppressed no longer impacts the accuracy of your weapon. Instead, a sway effect makes aiming more difficult, but with some skill you will find it possible to counteract.

Thank goodness no, IMO, it can be funny when the kids make characters do gay stuff, but I would begin to loathe the amount of sexual crassness and the ensuing youtube vids. This isn't GTA.

Snipers get a bad rap when the issue is how DICE created the recon class for BF3.

There's no reason that snipers can't be in the fray. Run with a pack of other guys and throw TUGS down, take objectives, help the team. Doesn't seem so hard. Unfortunately, most snipers are content to sit up on Brokeback Mountain with a "special friend" and get 3 kills in an entire match, thus never helping the team in any way...but hey, their KDR looks great. rolleyes.gif

That's the only I've ever hated about the whole BF series. Most people use the class in a way which accomplishes nothing.

Again, it's the way DICE created the class and weapons systems. Seems everything needed to hangs that for bf4 is exactly what they did.
Running down damavand peak providing spotting and suppression is great, but I could actually add frags to that with scope adjust. Play a rush level a few times and have the range dialed right in for every advancement move.
Haters on recon upset me. Did you just clear a room single handedly? Yes? Was it because 3 Doritos magically popped on your map? Yes?That was me. Move forward and take the mcom.
There are many maps where play aggressive recon is unenjoyable: getting stuck in a spot with no ammo/med pack/anti-tank/c4/claymore like Nebadon Flats.

It's been my experience that typical Recon class VERY, VERY, VERY RARELY spots anything, afraid that someone will take "their kill." When I went through the excruciatingly laborious and painfully mind-numbing assignments that included the sniper rifles, I'd have fellow snipers right next to me, and yet, not a single Dorito would ever pop up if it wasn't me that did the spotting. Besides, I don't need anyone sitting 500 meters back and not helping us win. Even in the incredibly rare event that they are actually spotting...that's what Proximity Scan and TUGS is for. Also, if you choose sniper class (particularly on Armored kill) then you should either do the honorable thing and have your character commit suicide or just play something else, imo.*

*But only if you're on my team. If you're on the enemy team, then by all means go with sniper class...I love road killing and tank-sniping silly snipers that can't do anything other than stare at my tank like a deer in headlights. biggrin.gif

In order to spot a guy, I regularly have to spam the spot button 3 or 4 times for it to work, if it does work. Whether it works or not, I have to wait 3 seconds because of the cool-down to spot another player. I noticed that spotting works much better in vehicles. Looking forward to the new mechanic in BF4 where it is a one time spot that spots many players at once.

I don't mind so much when the other classes don't spot, since they're likely engaged in close quarters fighting already. Typical snipers that camp in the mountains and on cranes have all day to hit the Back button, yet rarely do since they don't want "their kill taken from them." It's just an incredibly selfish way to play. Plus, being on a team with 6 snipers on it is about as threatening as having Liberace walk onto an all-female nude beach. rolleyes.gif If I see multiple snipers on my team, I know the game is over and I'll just worry about "getting mine" since that's what they're doing. But if I see my team is chock full of engineers and support putting down vehicles and assault guys that are playing aggressive and taking flags, I'm all in.

Simply put, snipers are typically little more than a nuisance...but they sure are fun to kill. biggrin.gif

This guy is the absolute best at humiliating camptastic snipers:

Hahaha, you crack me up man.

I was about to razz you saying "I use my tugs to put behind me so I don't get knifed while prone."
Guess I should start complaining about dry humping support players just to get their attention for ammo, which I do most the time I end up on a squad that I'm Engi on and need to replenish my swag and boy do I need to replenish when I start rage revenging with anti-air on an invincible chopper.

spyderwholikes69? come November I'll show you a recon who respects the role, you will be amazed what it's like to take corners with what feels like a sixth sense.
I wear this pretty proudly:

and

over 4000 kills teammates got that I helped with.
I have played 50 minutes of a losing conquest game (say Metro 200% tix) and angrily switch to recon, find a hiding spot to camp, pull out the MAV, and see my team takeover and win in the last 10 min. I have done it enough I know it's not a coincidence. I'm a prankster at heart, the slow patient kind, probably not too many players like me that will hide and use a MAV to spot for hours on end, I really do get kicks seeing a greyscale a squad of players frantically shoot at my MAV buzzing around their face and wait 5 seconds for my squad to roll around the corner and clean the floor.

There are times when it's better to have a 4-squadmate moving with you, and there are times it's just better to have doritos popping like crazy because of an eye in the sky.
Kind of like a helpers high, if you can't respect that, then... :-/

Nice work Cravit, Spyder doesn't play recon much but he pretty efficient at getting mav kills though. Its pretty hilarious to watch no matter if you're on opposite teams or not.
