BF3 Devs Tease a “Rewarding Week” Ahead, Reveal Most Popular Map and Weapon Balance Secrets15


Developers over at Digital Illusions CE reveal the most played and most popular map in Battlefield 3, give some insight to weapon and vehicle balance and teases an interesting week for Battlefield 3 fans.

When asked which Battlefield 3 map has been most played so far, Senior Gameplay Designer, Alan Kertz, revealed, “Op Metro.” This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise given the controversy that surrounds this unique map. Unique, because it oddly doesn’t quite seem to fit what Battlefield 3 has become known for, given it’s extreme linearity and numerous choke points. For every player that despises it’s limited space of movement and the utter chaos that it can often encourage, other players will take any chance they can get to roam the underground halls, light machine gun in hand, racking up the kills.

Kertz was also recently asked about weapon balance and how the DICE team went about its construction. Kertz answered surprisingly, “with 1 gun. The game was built around the M16 as a base.” The M16 assault rifle seems to be quite popular among assault class aficionados given the all-round, work horse that it is. Kertz’s statement seems to explain this. “Vehicle balance generally starts with the speed and handling of the vehicle, and then builds in a rock paper scissors way,” he added.

Meanwhile, other members of DICE tease some upcoming surprises for Battlefield 3 fans. Daniel Matros, Global Community Manager, mentioned that there are some “good playtests going on in the Studio today,” while Senior Designer, Tim Kjell has “a ‘slight feeling’ next week will be a very, very… shall we say, rewarding, week?” Could he be referring to the recently announced Inside DICE feature? Or something completely different?

I would believe that OP Metro was the most populated map a few weeks ago, But since RPG,M320 has been banned on almost all of them in my area they are always empty now.
Which is quite funny, Thats the only reason to play Metro. To spam the RPG's and M320s.

Re: [MP1ST]BF3 Devs Tease a

Funny, the only Metro servers i really play, are ones that ban m320s and Rpgs. Can't stand losing my health blazingly fast, when I don't see a single enemy. Just some punk spamming from the bottom of the escalator with his 320, for an hour straight.

Sent from my SAMSUNG Galaxy S.
