Really enjoyed the world being fleshed out, outside of purely the battles.

I always used to enjoy the little map descriptors in the early games, for the historical settings in BF1942 and BFVietnam, to the fictional ones in BF2 and BF2142, so this kind of thing is really cool.

Will need to listen to it again to really give feedback, but I really liked someone elses comment regarding news reports. Maybe the same stories regarding events that cause, or result from, the players to be on a map, but from different sources with their own bias (not outright propaganda, but leaning toward their nation) where the truth is hidden within.

Especially if you then split up who could access them so the community would have to come together to work out the truth. For example, those in the EU get a source in that area, NA would of course be the USA etc while everyone gets to hear the message from the Big Bad.

What you described is what we have in the game at launch.

It’s weird how they put so much effort in the lore/setting but then don’t show any of that in the actual gameplay. It’s hard to take it too seriously when you have a backstory for the maps but then everyone is in every faction.

I just wish they had different specialists based on what nation they chose to side with.

There's a lot of our 'lore' within our maps and you'll encounter it in various ways while running around doing normal Battlefield type things.

Vehicle radios have more than just music for example.

If you have any feedback on this or want to indulge me with your speculation and thoughts I'm all ears.

Hey, I'm not sorry if this has already been answered, but will we be getting something akin to community transmissions for this game? The communication between the players and the devs was amazing when it came to SWBF2, but we had none of that with BF5.

I have no doubt that it would be reassuring for many if you could give us an idea of what to expect on that front :)

Briefings would be the equivalent. You'd have to ask the Community team for their plans though. I don't want to sign them up to something or miss inform.

Well it is reassuring to know that there are eyes from the team in this sub. Wether or not anything being said will be taken onboard is another thing entirely. Either way I’m interested to see what the game is like is at launch, I’ve had mixed experiences with the beta but I’m overall hopeful. (I’m in agreement with the opinions that the class system should never have left though)

A lot of eyes (hey folks o7). You may not always see the "DICE Replied" flair, but if we could have a "DICE seen" everything would be covered.

Anecdotally, and back from my days in Community I can tell you that everything being discussed, created, watched, streamed and everything in-between is more than likely being tracked. Game companies will know conversation volume, sentiment and all those other buzz words for every part of a game's lifespan.

u/F8RGE thoughts on a post like this gaining lots of traction in the subreddit

There's nothing I can realistically say here that won't end up as a headline on a website or used as YouTube clickbait. So not sure what is expected, it's also not really my place. I'm aware that everything I say reflects on my team members, and even if it's just a throw away comment, it can quickly turn into "DICE says..." as if it's some sort of studio mandate.

Yes, I'm a part of the team but that does not mean I should be speaking publicly about anything and everything. Let alone speaking about something related to finance, because it's not my area of expertise at all.

Important thing to note is that this sub has more eyes on it from the game team than perhaps you'd expect. I know for a fact that there are even a few dedicated souls scouring new. So when a post like this appears, or anything that gets even remotely 'hot' (in Reddit terms), it's almost certainly been seen by countless people.

Again, not the answer you're probably looking for, but wanted to...

Thanks for the reply regardless.

Dozer is Mexican, not US Army. Although he used to be.

Thank you for clearing it up <3 do you also get points for assisted kills or anything else in transport aircraft?

Yes to gaining assists (and the XP that comes with it) while you're transporting people around.

This is improved at launch. You'll get XP if you're piloting a vehicle and a teammate spawns on you. Similar for events such as resupplying ammo, spotting etc.

I used a library growing up, which had a PC that could be used. Libraries have only gotten better over the years. But it is a fair point you bring up.

That one where hosts talked about the idea of "connecting the world again" being a "huge pile of bs". Unfortunately, I didn't get to hear more because I got blown up by a tank:(

There are multiple out there. Hopefully next time the tank goes easy on you and can finish your listening. Thank you for the pleasant conversation.

Ah, good to hear. Worth keeping an ear out for more of that, especially as you travel across maps.

Which one did you hear?
