Request To Symthic Developers

Dear Symthic team,

I find your website to be a quintessential extension to the overall BF4 gaming experience. It far surpasses anything else in the domain.

With that said, I wanted to place a request to the Symthic developer team: Is there ANY way you could increase the number of weapons we can compare on the Multi-Comparison page to 8 from the current 5. It would be an invaluable addition that would allow for quicker comparison across a whole range of weapons, rather than doing it piecemeal.

I appreciate your input and time.

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"

UCAV:
"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

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.

Aww!
*pinches cheeks*
So cute!

Moved topic to feedback, fits better here.

First of all: Thanks for the kind words! It's a surprisingly big donation for devs like me :)

Hmmm interesting suggestions. It indeed is limiting to only have max 5 weapons at once but on the other hand too many would make page look cluttered and extra-wide with too many weapons for selection. You wouldn't believe how much it burns inside to have site that varies in width from page to page.

But there's a valid point there, especially with number of weapons in class in BF4. Mmaaaybe some kind of a "report" that has all weapons per class compared to each other in similar way? It needs some designing and adjusting but shouldn't be impossible, but not sure if that would be useful.

THAT would be beyond BRILLIANT!

Believe me, there is a lot of room, and it would make the available space seem very utilized. If not 8, then the addition of just 2 more in the available space would make the whole page very balanced. Attached is a very childish illustration - there is room sire!

Yeah that part is okey and would even make it more balanced, however the actual "data table" is borderline-ish on how it would fit with eight colums. I gotta test it around but I might just be lazy and go with the "full weapons report" thing :v

Was about to dig this thread up as Sym responed to the question. Apparently according to statistics vast majority only compare max 2-3 weapons with the system so adding more is not really an option.
Aaaand no, haven't been doing any "data table" things :v. Been busy with Battlefront and studies + work.
