  • BF2 "Classic" Mode coming to CTE

    Classic mode coming to Battlefield 4 (CTE) : battlefield_4


    Looks like they game is moving in the right direction. Whatever happened to the custom settings we ran initially on the server? Maybe with the new mode we can tweak the settings to make it more TG without being a custom server.

    Re: BF2 "Classic" Mode coming to CTE

    The custom settings were great, took a lot of work and contributions from everyone to get to the definite sweetspot we arrived at. Sadly it pushed the server into the custom bracket as you have mentioned which made us damn near invisible, hence we took the decision to try hardcore which has led to a full server most nights. I would love for 'Classic' to enable us to deliver those settings in a visible environment that attracted people to the community but I am not holding my breath. Traditionally there has been little flexibility available to server admins under official modes because of DICE/EA desire to provide a consistent experience and uniformity, we've been fighting those constraints from day one. Ironically the constraints and restrictions themselves have been inconsistent and changed from server update to update. That too has made it hard. We can but hope though to be honest on a personal level I have adapted quite nicely to Hardcore now and really enjoy it.

      Hardcore seems more "TG" than Classic, esp. considering hit markers are on in Classic. In any case, who's to say switching to Classic won't make our server as obscure as Custom did?

            Should I Faint Now? Or wait?

            There are also a lot of changes to the icon clutter.

              The de-cluttering attempt has been amazing so far. I've been playing with all the settings, quite a bit.

                So am I missing something else, or is the only difference between Classic and HC is hit markers?

                  Minimap/hud comes back too.

                  I'm also gonna assume that they either mistakenly got the health wrong or will change it after feedback. I think everyone that wanted classic mode wants health more like normal.

                    i never played BF2 or 2142, all the worship here is making me consider buying them. I guess thats what i get for holding on to 1942/DCFinal/Forgotton Hope for so freakin long.

                      Do we really want the minimap back? I have been so accustomed to hitting the M button to see my surroundings...

                        that is a good question. i know my K/D ratio would improve with it on, but i think it makes it too easy to lone wolf. with minimap you dont need the kind of communication that we espouse. im not a huge fan of regular health either, putting 6 shots in someone just to watch them turn around and noob-tube you is the worst.

                          Large map is useless in a lot of cases, without having the ability to zoom in/out with it.

                            The lack of a compass is the worst part about hardcore/no minimap. By the time you open your map, figure out which way youre facing (which is hard in the unzoomed map), tell your squadmates, wait for them to do the same, you are either dead or the threat you were describing is no longer there.

                              I know that problem. I realized that the easiest way to know your way around a map is to simply memorize it. This is definitely easier on some maps than on others though. For some maps it's a matter of left, right, up, and down, like Propaganda and Flood Zone. On other maps though, like Altai Range, Guilin Peaks (just about all the China Rising maps...) it's a bit more complicated and in that case it's easier to say the flag name like "Contact, Bravo side"

                              I feel like it would be easy enough for them to add a compass in game, they just haven't bothered to.
