Ok, here it is, nice and simple.
1. There is NO, repeat NO Commander / Commnder mode in BF3.
2. Some 'commander' like abilities have been given to the squad leader afaik (arty strikes, uav?)
That is it though. No waypoints, no command structure, no commo rose.
They have turned BF form being the ultimate team based FPS into a camp fest everyone on their own CoD copy.
The fact that there's 'death match' modes at all should tell people that DICE are being ridden up the chocolate highway for cash from EA.
BF as we know it / want it is gone forever.
I owned battlefield 1942 (lent it to a friend at school and never got it back though) and played the crap out of that, I also own battlefield 2 and bad company 2, although the one ive played the most is definately 1942, I think that battlefield 3 is going to be friggen sweet. They know how to do vehicle combat very well, and judging by operation metro they are getting close to nailing infantry combat too which was lacking in the previous games...
So this ones got damn amazing visuals, all of the tank warfare and 64 player count that we are fond of from battlefield, and ive heard many times that the caspian border truly recreates the battlefield "feeling" that we all know and love from the older titles like 1942.
I have a feeling this is gonna be one of their greatest ones yet.
