Because modifying sound levels is so realistic right?
In fact of all the changes compared to BF2, I don't like a single one, except destruction.
edit: lol a bit harsh here. Like the extra unlocks, extra character progression (as long as it doesn't force you to make several soldiers or log out to switch soldiers), obviously better graphics, better sounds (but not modifying their intensity so that noobs don't get knifed) etc.
What I don't like is no commander, maybe no on-map assets, 4 classes (depends on character skills though I guess so we'll see), etc.
Having squad captains or any individuals with some of the commander's powers does not replace the commander. I don't trust snipers to use artillery like in BC2 (herp derp gonna mortar that sniper because I can't snipe him myself) or the UAV (game over if it's like in BC2), and with all the people who are going to play this game I feel the commander's role is even more important.
The game doesnt have less classes. It has more if you take the various unlocks and combine them in different ways. Its all about giving you more options rather than restrictions. I support the choice of 4 classes.
They have something interesting to do with squads that they wont tell us, so things could be pretty cool when we find out.
Hate on the game all you want, thats fine, everyone can have judgements, but so far DICE is delivering everything we want and more. If you dont like it, well thats your choice, but nothing you said makes the game a bad game. They are continually evolving the series. If you want the same game released 4-5 times, you have call of duty. IF i want battlefield 2, i have it installed, if i want battlefield 3, i will have it installed.
as i said before, when has dice let us down.
