  • EA has teased that it will show off Battlefield 4 within "about 90 days"

    Its set to be launched in 2014, Modern setting

    Nothing else to say yet.



    Anything you want in the game this time around you better tell them now instead of 6 months after release, They can't add the features if they don't know you want them.

      A return to BF2-style mechanics would be much appreciated. :P

        Optimize the dang graphics; I could run BFBC2 with everything on max and get 50+ FPS, yet in BF3 with everything turned all the way down and with my resolution lowered, it still only had ~20 FPS. BF3 ended up looking way worse on low settings then BC2 on high yet it still ran like crap.

        In other words, add an extra-low setting or the option to lower more dynamic shaders if the optimization isn't great.

          I'd ask for a return to BF2/2142 squad mechanics and VOIP, but that ship has sailed... sadly.

            There is another better source but I forgot where I had found it.


            Im all for bringing back the tactical squad and commander mechanics from BF2, The combat and vehicle mechanics? They can stay with BF2.

              The issue you are describing is the resource floor implemented in the game. Without knowing your setup I'd say the most likely culprit is the large amount of calculations put on the CPU that are not as heavily reduced by the game settings as the load placed on the graphics unit. This is usual but in the specific case of BF3 the floor for CPU resources is higher in comparison to the floor for the GPU resources. Most games call for more GPU>CPU, where as BF3 is more GPU<=CPU(of this is assigning abstruse values to the components, but it should hopefully be understandable). I imagine changing the demands on these resources would require a lot of work to the core components of the game engine. Possible I suppose if they incorporate something like "Physx" to handle some of the calculations the CPU does currently, but considering that the game already eats up all the GPU it can get at higher settings I'm not sure that is an avenue they would pursue.

                  Actually I would like to see vehicles hard to master like they were in BF2......It took a level of skill to be a good chopper pilot. Now any 6 year old is capable of being good.

                  Oh and add a beeper warning system for armor so they know when anyone is within 100 yds of them and have it show their location through walls....wouldn't want the armor to be under powered.

                    I'm with you there Ven. A tank should not take 5 or 6 RPG shots to take it out. And the proximity scan should not be available unless that time period has the capability. Only what the machine gunner and the tank driver sees should make the enemy show up on the mini map!

                      The vehicles in BF3 are overpowered, But its not because they are easy, or require less skill.

                      They are overpowered because unlike in BF2 they are not garbage, which is what is "wrong" with them, they are too good. but instead of nerfing them into cardboard boxes with a lawnmower engine and a paintball gun, how about Dice add some real complexity to them, Some things that take real skill to overcome and master instead of just making them weak.


                      Add more depth to the disable mechanics, Give tank turrets a turning speed limit, Ammo, fuel, and so on.

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_M1_Abrams

                      They are very hard to take out completely, and they can take multiple rounds from heavy ordinance to even damage them enough to take out the crew,

                      "During an early attack on Baghdad, one M1A1 was disabled by a recoilless rifle round that had penetrated the rear engine housing, and punctured a hole in the right rear fuel cell, causing fuel to leak onto the hot turbine engine. After repeated attempts to extinguish the fire, the decision was made to destroy or remove any sensitive equipment. Oil and .50 caliber rounds were scattered in the interior, the ammunition doors were opened and several thermite grenades ignited inside. Another M1 then fired a HEAT round in order to ensure the destruction of the disabled tank. The tank was completely disabled but still intact. Later, an AGM-65 Maverick and two AGM-114 Hellfire missiles were fired into the tank to finish its destruction. Remarkably, the tank still appeared to be intact from the exterior."

                      "Although the RPG-7 is unable to penetrate the front and sides, the rear and top are vulnerable to this weapon"


                      No it doesn't have to be completely realistic, but to make it that weak is silly.

                      Don't just nerf it, make them have real downsides and real skill to use.

                        To a certain extent, balance must take place over realism in a non-simulation FPS. I personally think that making the armor on the tanks weaker (like in previous BF titles) is a better balancing alternative than, for example, requiring a full crew of four players to run the tank. Either that or slow down repair speeds by a lot.

                          I felt in previous titles ground armor was next to useless in most cases.

                          Unless you had someone with a few hundred hours and a dedicated support crew who liked sitting back from any fighting because of how weak it was.

                          It had its place, but a pure infantry squad was better in everyway.


                          It is OP in BF3, but I don't think making it weaker is anywhere close to the answer.

                            Hey now, BF 2142 had excellent vehicles, but the roller mines and EMP grenades were two successful counters to it in addition to the Pilum AT rifle. I still think they should focus their efforts of BF 2143, if that is still a confirmed project.
