Map Gap.

Catchy tile FTW.

Anyway, does anyone else feel there is a section or class of maps missing from this game?. At the moment we basically have Locker (i.e Metro) Infantry only -> not much -> big vehicle maps.

There to me seems to be a gap of Infantry maps that have a few ground vehicles like Bazaar, Siene, Davmand, Tehran, Karkand etc. closest I suppose would be Flood Zone and maybe Zavod.

These were my favourite maps in BF3.

Which is why I think it's odd that Firestorm, Gulf and Caspian made it into second Assault as they are all large vehicle maps and I hardly thought Gulf and Firestorm were that popular?


I pity the wool

Dice is trying to push everyone to sit in the spawnscreen for 5 minutes to get into a vehicle. There's not much logic behind it. They gave us an extra infantry mode (domination), and made conquest 99% based around vehicles.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

The World Champion went to China once.

They called me a Gweilo.

So I kicked a big fucking hole in their wall and let all the Mongolians in.

just thought I'd share.

The thought of Assaults running out of ACE 23 rounds mid firefight, Engineers facing the rear of an unaware MBT with no rockets left, Recons unable to...Whatever the fuck they do. These are the things that keep me up at night ;(

About hunturk:
I don't know what's funnier, the video itself of the fact that an unlisted video has more views than most of your normal videos :P


You just live to hit people upside the noggin with a Math Bomb, don't you?

Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"

I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

*pinches cheeks*
So cute!

But but but

There's no way he doesn't know what he's talking about

I've thought exactly the same thing. Hopefully the Urban DLC (Dragon's teeth?) will have some maps in this style.

The game is in desperate need of maps with two roads max.

I absolutely agree. There is Locker (yuck), true clusterfuck, and then large open maps. I am not having much fun playing either of that. Seine was just about perfect for me. In fact, Bazaar with reasonably low amount of players as well.

...and what does China rising bring us? Even bigger and more open maps. For fucks sake!!
That's why I am playing mostly TDM and domination (which make me puke, but beats getting sniped and "helicoptered" 15 times in a row on Rogue transmission).


I'll be there... around every corner... in every empty room...

I wouldn't mind seeing Bazaar return. As long as they fixed it to make it so spawn trapping wasn't so goddamned easy... US dominance, anyone? I'd also like to see Noshahr Canals TDM return, as long as the goddamned cranes and the shipping containers could be affected by Levolution.

I'm completely serious. Well, seriously insane actually :P

If only more people left the wheel chair, adjustable hospital bed, and crutches behind and played HC. (aka Regen, Minimap, Killcam)

Such as? I didn't think the new maps were known yet.

And c'mon, you had fun with us on Rogue Transmissions! Nobody could of hated my endless jokes about every enemy vehicle, player and that evil quad bike "Emitting some form of transmission; possibly rogue" :D

Large vehicle based maps in a BF game ... who would've thought of that?

I don't get the point that there are too much "large" maps since the only maps that could be considered large are Paracel, Golmud and maybe Lancang and Transmision. And even on those maps you can stick to A, B, C on Golmud, A-B on Paracal and under the dish and E on Transmission to get your fix of Inf based combat. All other maps are highly Infantry focused, Shanghai with the tower and later rubble which is not the best place for vehicles, the rooftops which applies also to Dawnbreaker and extends it to tunnels and indoor areas where no one has to wet their pants scared of vehicles.
The only truely bad map for Inf is Lancang imo. But that's cause the map as a whole is utterly shit.

Zavod is mostly inf based and you can spent a whole round running and gunning underneath C and D. Same goes for Hainan, cap C and defend it either from the roof or ground level/1st floor. Locker is just the warm up for everyone not able or willing to fight against vehicles and rather sit in a corner spamming LVG, airburst whatever. With metro comes to next map for everyone without a drivers license, and I'm pretty sure at least one other DLC will deliver Inf only maps.

So don't get your jimmies rustled too early, we only know 18 of the 30 maps for BF4 (given that every DLC brings 4 new maps).

About the 2nd Assault maps, there was a vote a while back on BL which maps players want to see again in BF4, guess the community has spoken.


Such as? I didn't think the new maps were known yet.
Gamespot leaked 4 map previews of China Rising on the 26th on Youtube, they got taken down rather quick but others already had them downloaded and posted again.
