1 and 5 were fine at launch surprisingly
Because of the backlash of past games"Females on the front line? Totally unrealistic. What next, soldiers who magically recover from bullet wounds by crouching for 5 seconds?"
Flame me all you want, but the BFV backlash was completely ridiculous.
It was also something about DICE calling their fan base uneducated etc. Crazy outfits, with swords and robot arms, etc.The problem with the backlash against women characters was that it took away from what shouldve been the real backlash.... bizarre gameplay changes. I remember reading about them forcing attrition down everyones throat and thinking wtf. thats gonna make the game boring, and it did. BFV is easily the most boring shooter ive ever played. A big step down from BF1 which was a lot of fun but might have come at the expense of realism. But you know what? Thats ok. the game was fun. it was successful. by far the most successful BF game and they removed everything that made it great.
The changes to operations just werent needed. One of the most beloved BF modes ever made and they completely fucked it. Why am I doing Conquest in the middle of an offensive?
But no, gamers who have never touched BF had to get their panties in a twist about female characters in world war 2 as if they are being forced to use them. I almost never ran into a female character when playing the game because no one wanted to use them. Its such a bizarre controversy.
yeah, but it was a backlash to a backlash. I cant expect nerd developers to be good with PR. These people are mostly anti-social. EA shouldve handled the PR on that, but IIRC EA had their hands full after the debacle with Battlefront 2 just a few months earlier.It was also something about DICE calling their fan base uneducated etc. Crazy outfits, with swords and robot arms, etc.
The whole thing was a shit show.
4 was a fucking great BF. Put hundreds of hours into that beautiful game. 1 (WW1) and 5 sucked hard, so I don't have a lot of faith 6 will be good, but I'll keep my tabs on this since I love BF games so much. The female characters ruins a bit of the suspension of disbelief for me, which is a big part of why I did not like BF5, but if the game takes place in modern times I don't think I'd have a problem with it since women serving combat roles now
The greater majority of people simply don’t like woke shit despite how is looks like sometimes. It’s usually tolerated by most because it’s difficult to refute political correctness to a point, but sometimes when you go full retard - a backlash is inevitable.yeah, but it was a backlash to a backlash.

Come to think of it, DICE really fucked up two of EA's biggest franchises this gen. Lets hope a single focus on Battlefield and a 3 year dev cycle pays off. I dont like what CoD has become and as much as I liked Warzone, I would just like something casual where I can respawn after dying.
