Cool and all, but the video smells bit like premium advertising (picture of "Premium" logo + some stress on "Premium" word)... Fukken EA marketing ;_;

Ewww, with that community and that much traction YouTubers get for their bad ideas, this is going to fail pretty hard.

There is no doubt that in the past a lot of good community maps have been created and I dont even have ideas for better maps, but I see it very very sceptical.

I am pretty sure an infantry map will be the result, with many corridors and a lot of baserape, basically the opposite of the sense of "Battlefield".

Dice might know this is going to fail too; they are just starting the campaign because they cant hear the rant on their maps any more and use the inevitable failure of the map to teach the community, that their maps arent bad as most players state.

TLDR -
Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

Noshahr or Grand Bazar ?

Whatever it is - neither of them worked out for anything else than TDM.

LOL, what if the community map would be a straight TDM Map. So much for PTFO :D

No: Counter-Strike's de_dust2


Anyways, I really like one of the ideas someone came up with: Hashima Island (a.k.a. Battleship Island) off the coast of Japan. If any of you have watched the last Bond movie, well: this was the inspiration for the villain's hideout. Seems like it'd be an awesome place to be mapped out for BF4.

Memorable Quotes

I once tried to burn a bridge, but due to the half-assed levolution implementation it kept standing up just fine.

Compared to the MTAR, the PDR has the TTK of your average pack of cigarettes.

What can't be changed can be banned.

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)

I swear to god if you reply with a picture of the AEK I'll mail you a buttplug shaped like one.

How do you guys control your FAMAS burst length since it fires its mag in just 1,5 seconds))
I consider each magazine a burst. :/

This is Symthic, we don't do "feels" around here ;)

can we also just take this as an opportunity to suggest that, idk, maybe making different maps for different game modes?

but oh wait, rush is the only game mode with restrictive boundaries unlike cq, and i wonder why it never occurred to DICE that this one fact about rush literally gives them no excuse to make such shitty maps which try to satisfy the two game modes
G3A3 or bust

Gunners and passengers are just for show.

No, it's not Noshahr or Grand Bazaar but this:

Data Browser

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.
