Huh, so this does line-up with the DLC rumors that were attached to the Battlefield 4 rumors then.

Oh my. You're a smart cookie! :D

Terbinator 01-29-2013 03:36 PM

I've not even seen them but i love the dropships already.

Air Superiority was great on 1943 too!

RoKKeR 01-29-2013 03:36 PM

FUUUUUUCKKK YEEEAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Air Superiority is [I]awesome.[/I] One of my favorite aspects of Battlefield. Can't wait!

Can we use the vehicles in CTF mode?

So there is a chance the 60fps rumours are also true! YES!

Here's what was revealed:

[QUOTE]In addition, the staff also revealed "Battlefield 3" last DLC "finality (End Game)" Some new details:
1. Added four new maps, actually may just be the old map revision.
[B]2 new air war mode, similar to the Armored Fury Battle City / armor advantage mode.
[/B]3 new Double prevention and control vehicles and two-wheeled motorcycles and other vehicles.
4. Increase in new jobs and new achievements.[/QUOTE]

I think we need the pimp that OP, Reiko. Organize all the detail! :D

TimeEffect 01-29-2013 03:41 PM

Will this mode be junk with heat seekers?

Hopefully Nirolak is on it. Needs a new thread title update.

Kingbrave 01-29-2013 03:46 PM

Nice! Loved this mode in 1943.

And at first I thought Premium was stupid but am so glad i got it now!

Metalmurphy 01-29-2013 03:52 PM

Thank you based dice!!



I hope one of the new vehicles is a new jet too.

Lakitu 01-29-2013 03:54 PM

Now I just need to start killing things in jets.

H3XAntiStyle 01-29-2013 03:55 PM

I feel like an air superiority mode might actually be useful for learning how to fly well, given that then you don't have to wait 20 minutes every time you die, and with more pilots you'll 1) have more crappy enemy pilots and 2) you'll have someone to cover you.

OTOH, that's potentially more super destroyo pilots to blow you up when you first spawn and haven't taken off.

AndyD 01-29-2013 04:01 PM

Nice! Can't wait.

waypoetic 01-29-2013 04:09 PM

Dropship? CTF? Nice. Don't care for the air-only-combat (i suck at flying jets).

Neverfade 01-29-2013 04:14 PM

Horrible at Jets, only ok at choppers. Don't think I can get excited about this.

I am pretty great at shooting them down though...

Seanspeed 01-29-2013 04:19 PM

So another vehicle-based map pack? Not interested. Especially if jets are gonna be a big part of it.

Sounds better than flight training servers to me. Seems like jerks, who are actually good at flying, love to join these servers and shoot people out of the sky who are trying to learn how to even control the planes.

You should be learning to fly in empty servers, and not during a live match.

Seanspeed 01-29-2013 04:35 PM

[QUOTE=Lakitu;47037757]Vehicles are essential in Battlefield.[/QUOTE]
I never said I didn't want any vehicles. I just dont like maps that are primarily focused on them. I prefer spending most of my time on foot.

phosphor112 01-29-2013 04:37 PM

I need more MBT kills with Helicopter... That is the one of 3 assignments I don't have done.

Only for the Dedicated (almost there)
Rambo (lol 5 multikills, fucking DICE)
Get to da Choppa.

EDIT: Are they finally going to add the second damn seat for the Jet? They've had Jet gunner unlocks but NO jets to use them with.

WHY.jpg

Vehicles are a part of Battlefield. Close Shitters just showed DICE can't do infantry only maps to save their lives.

But yeah, jet only mode = ignoring outside of the inevitable troll achievement DICE will put in to make my life hell. Just like I ignored that airplane only map in 1943.

[quote]OTOH, that's potentially more super destroy pilots to blow you up when you first spawn and haven't taken off.[/quote]

This is going to be the reality unless DICE hasn't implemented an out of bounds on the spawn area for the other team. Then someone (me) is going to fly a jet as fast as they can to the spawn, lay C4 on the runway and TROLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

waypoetic 01-29-2013 06:28 PM

DICE will never recognize baseraping. They only see it as a bad team got pwned by a good one. It's not that simple...

EvilKatarn 01-29-2013 06:30 PM

I played so much Air Superiority on 1943. The other maps took a serious backseat to that.

I won't however redownload the whole 20GB of Battlefield 3 and I sure as hell won't pay them for (admittedly pretty nice) maps.

animlboogy 01-29-2013 06:32 PM

It took this long to get Air Superiority? I played a bunch of that in 1943. Bowed out of BF3 after Karkand, but I thought it would have been added before now. Seems crucial for giving people an opportunity to work on their piloting skills.

What do you mean "another"? Theres too many infantry focused maps already. Time for Battlefield to get back to being Battlefield again.

1 - You didn't read my post above obviously. I DID NOT SAY I dont want vehicles in the maps. Instead of jumping to conclusions and getting overdefensive, read what I'm saying. I prefer a better balance between vehicles and infantry. My least favorite maps were the most vehicle-based ones. I think the game shines best when both playstyles are viable. The B2K maps are probably my favorites because of that.

2 - We all know you hate Close Quarters. You take every opportunity to bash it when you can. But a [I]lot [/I]of people liked it, including myself. They weren't the best, but it was surprisingly good fun and shows that they CAN actually make good infantry-only maps. I do miss the vehicles after a while, so I never play it too long, but its a nice bit of variety there for when you want it.

SapientWolf 01-29-2013 06:42 PM

Maybe I can compete against people that are more terrible than I am now.

patapuf 01-29-2013 06:47 PM

I hope we can use light vehicles for the flag, it would be fun to chase a buggy with a chopper or another vehicle

These air mode won't be very fun with all the lock-on crap. Seanspeed, you're better off on the ground these days.

Agreed. I was a huge doubter of CQ, but IMO, it (along with Scavenger mode <3) shows that DICE actually CAN do infantry/close-quarters combat very well.

It's a nice change of pace.

SniperHunter 01-29-2013 07:12 PM

I am hoping for a coral sea type map, where the engineers repair the carrier, infantry man the aa, snipers get to snipe the soldiers on deck. That was a good map

what can they really do man? just make it completely out of bounds? then the war will start at the inbounds line.

BF1943 didn't even give points if you killed people in their base and people did it anyway!

H3XAntiStyle 01-29-2013 08:58 PM

[QUOTE=Evolved1;47037867]You should be learning to fly in empty servers, and not during a live match.[/QUOTE]

I can fly. I can't dogfight. I have the jet mastery tag, I just still can't compete for crap.

Also I really like Close Quarters. At least, I like it a whole lot more than CoD, which is what it's compared to I guess.


ALL THEY NEED TO DO is have jets with like 30 seconds invulnerability to help. Won't solve it, but it'll help, because then at least they just have to hang behind you instead of just not even trying.
