You mean just as a spectator? It would be really handy for admins so they can more easily judge hackers. Watching matches play out is more exciting than most sports, too, at least IMO. It will be nice for content creation too (Battlerecorder, that is). Battlefield montages are always so epic.
It's nice to see they didn't forget about the e-sports crowd. That was one small disappointment for me, but at least they're trying. I really hope to see it soon. I can only assume they're going to try to have it ready before or around the time Close Quarters comes out. For those who will jump to conclusions.. I very highly doubt they would make us pay for it, either.
Also, someone mentioned artillery. I believe DICE has said they're working on bringing artillery to Armored Kill.

Gamers can be very absusive, which sucks. I would hope a few bad eggs wouldn't ruin it for us all, though.
DICE has hinted at a recorder before and has been working on it. At the moment, though, all that they have is what they use for making trailers which the developers say is useless junk and wouldn't be fit for use in the community. They're working on making it usable by the community, however.Edited by moocowman - 4/2/12 at 11:26am
