While a 1919 Thompson prototype may be "close enough" (especially with ITNOTT bumping the game up to 1919), and the Fedorov-Degtyarev is perhaps passable, it'd be pretty stupid to actually go through with adding the M1918A2 BAR and Mosin-Nagant M38 into Battlefield 1. The game already features some anachronistic items, but that's generally been developer oversights. Deliberately adding guns that DICE knows are from WW2 would be silly. That being said, I wouldn't mind a period-correct Mosin-Nagant carbine.

Also, people are saying that these guns basically confirm that the next game is set during WW2. I've been saying that ever since I've first seen this art piece from Battlefield 1's lead weapon artist, which he posted over a year ago.

So there was an update today. Anything hiding in the backend for us to pick apart?

I also heard updates will stop in June. So if they're gonna get added it's gonna have to be soon.

A bigger youtuber discussing the scope glint change.

Skip to 1:00 for facepalm.

"[The sweetspot] would, in theory, reduce the numbers of Scouts sitting on the edge of battles and not directly engaging or helping their team in a meaningful way. Now the other side to it is that while the intent might have been to improve gameplay by getting a class to integrate into the battle, the overall skill ceiling of the class was dropped down massively. And players quickly learned that the power the class held was almost worth abusing." - Westie

Skill ceilings and skill floors are not the same thing.

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

And if it would be possible to disable this by simple commands in user.cfg - that's a legal cheat.

Still, I expect more from a so-called gamechanger.

@NoctyrneSAGA

Definitely, it is strange how many of the Bf youtubers are not more interested in game design or even just what applies to Battlefield. This game series is a huge part of their life, but they don't seem that interested. Like, how are they not reading symthic? (atleast previously)


On topic, all the glint changes are great!

Same reason politicians are not all that interested in deeply learning about the topics they are legislating: it's not actually necessary when pandering to the masses. So why bother?

They want money/prestige/power, those are the huge parts of their life. BF Youtube videos are just a vehicle for that. Better to drive a Ferrari to work than a rusty old Lada right?

As an example: calling BF casual became popular and fashionable so that's basically all they do. I still have no idea what that even means in the context, or what a non-casual BF title looks like. Nobody bothered to sit down and really define these things, they just resorted to memes.

Yes, the community is very much meme-driven. Just look at all the meme guns and the really terrible "quit/teamswitch if you are losing" meme.

I imagine in their heads, accessibility and low barriers to entry = casual.

Therefore a game that has a high barrier to entry is good. Just like sniping in previous Battlefields. A kool kids' klub if you will.



My greatest fear will be a switch from rational designs to meme-driven design.

Symthic Game Science might just die out and be replaced with Le Reddit Memes.
