Great for the C4 to support I am happy now. Still I find the suppression changes unneeded. I never had any issues with suppression in CQ. Come to think of it I never had any issues with suppression at all. The random bullet spread was the right thing to do in my opinion since scope sway can so easily be neglected by simply having better gear (i.e. mouse) than the casual gamer. I hate that. There is no skill in just using a better system.
The armour perk I did not really like, but I guess anyone will have it, since it is basic. But it will increase the TTK even more. Even if it is just one point of damage per round you will need a minimum of six bullets to kill. If you hit 25% of your shots (which is incredibly high in BF3) you will need at least 24 shots for one kill. On a happy sidenote, unless they bring back that chest multiplier which they better not do, bolt-actions probably won't be OHKs to the chest, which was my biggest gripe with the Recon kit.

What is an MP-APS by the way?

Edit: Perks for every kind of explosive is a bit overdoing it...Even if they work squadwide...

I would like to remember that DICE did mention the nature of the lower damage overall was because of the Alpha state, or something along the lines of having higher damage values on release.

[Speculation] What if, DICE adds an universal chest multiplier along with the lowered damage values, so that Armour reduces that multiplier?

It wouldn't make much sense to have rounds to the chest deal 22.5% to the chest but 25% to the lower body, as far as 'balance' goes.

As far as my view goes, I like that the specialisation trees actually focus on a role 'boost', rather than being straight out upgrades, as BF3. So if I want to play a more healing orientated role as assault, I can choose an specialisation tree that improves those abilities.

Although, as an ending point, ammo upgrades for gadgets area bit meh IMO. I assume that specialised AT will start with more AT Rockets, AT mines, increased RTool damage and something else.

So, what do the new gadgets and field upgrades mean for class and vehicle balance?

I just hope they don't go overboard with the effectiveness of the specializations. They're introducing a LOT of new variables, and while that's great on one hand, it makes balancing that much harder. If they really are doing play testing on as big of a scale that I hope they are, then I believe they have a good shot at getting it right, but it would be VERY easy to get it wrong. I just hope they're doing all their homework is all. I applaud them for introducing new concepts, they just need to be careful.

Sorry, I was on my phone for a while, so I couldn't write extensive responses. I think that a few of the new CoD kids will be using the defense field upgrade extensively, but their heads will provide my SV98 a good accuracy. Also, flanks won't be affected by it. So I see my AN94 still blowing heads off.

I don't think being a "CoD" kid has anything to do with picking the defense path.

Q.F.T.

I think that the article describes well the use it could have, not really sure on how increased protection has an appeal on CoD players. I'd be more inclined to link them to more offensive specs considering the arcade nature of the game, and the in-built hatred for anyone who 'camps'.

Definitions of camping may vary.
