  • Mobile Commander App Phased Out

    From Battlelog News:

    This is not an easy choice, but we believe the time is right to retire the mobile app as we’re seeing more of our Commanders playing on PC and console. This change means that you’ll no longer be able to download the app from Apple Store or Google Play starting today, April 28th. However, if you have the app downloaded already, you can continue to play it on mobile devices until August 11th. Additionally, this change does not affect in any way the in-game Commander mode experience. You will still be able to take the command and lead your team to victory on your PC and consoles!

    I suppose the cost to continue updating the app wasn't worth it for EA.

    I'll miss the app. Great way to entertain myself on long travel soccer weekends with 6 hour waits between games.

      agreed... I played as Commander a lot on my iPad... while at work... hell if I'm home on PC or Console, I'd rather just play the game. I will miss it. But I also understand why.

        The commander App was something they promoted a fair amount when BF4 launched so it never feels great when they
        start to turn the lights off on features, hopefully they invest some time into the in-game version of commander because of it.

        "Please note that the Battle report history slider feature below will be discontinued soon (2015-05-28 at the earliest)"
        (This is the main page slider on battlelog that you can see historical skill data for your soldier.)

        I wonder if anything else is being trimmed out.

          I think there should be a distinctive beep when the commander comes on to talk to you, other wise you might think it is one of your squad mates talking.

            they are trimming features to upset us enough to give up on Bf4 and switch to hardline to recoup their losses because the game didn't do well.

              Just like the Great Disconnect of 2009 that EA perpetrated to make us switch to a different BF title.

                Wow. Here I was about to try the app and now they've discontinued it before I even got the chance. :(

                Why? You don't get that in other games with a command element (I'm thinking of Arma). I often do something like "Alpha One, Command, new orders...blah...blah...blah." when I talk to SLs in BF. They know what squad they are (if they don't know already) and who is talking to them.

                      He has a tablet and internet. What more does he need to keep in touch with us? Oh right, a real gaming PC/laptop and a mic! :/
