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.
sorry, i tend to agree with dice. the commander role was ok. But now its done with the UAV. You have to be tactical and sneaky with the UAV, using it to spot, just like the commander spots enemies, He also calls in a hellfire missle, like a missle barrage. The only thing the UAV cant do is call in a vehicle. He does the same basic support functions as the commander, but its open to more people, and much more active in participation.

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.

If by airplanes you mean jets, then yes. Or at least their 'trailer' had one.

I just hope the medic class doesn't get a machine gun like in bc2, that was just stupid I thought.

They way I am hoping this works out is that you can still sneak up on people (of course not everyone has a headset ) but it may just be harder. Hopefully when sneaking in some house if a window is shot out you would be able to hear sounds from outside louder from that window then you would if it wasn't shot.

Lets just hope the sniper class doesn't get a claymore or a motion mine now to make it even easier for them. I am really hoping the class' are basically the same as in BF2 since to me it made a lot more sense than the ones in BC2 where a medic can revive/heal and gets an automatic weapon.

Stop complaining about things you guys dont understand, Bad COmpany 2 has by far the best audio right now in gaming, There not gonna make it worse. In-fact Dice is one of the rare companies that strives to make their game better by taking their time and creating a masterpiece not rehashing the same crap that black ops/modern warfare has been doing for years now. Im so pissed I bought Black Ops it looks/sounds exactly like the previous game. Complete crap.

The commander did more than that, and it was a pretty awesome game when there'd be a good one who use all his abilities and give orders and stuff. Those days will be gone I fear.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on the game, I'm criticizing some of its features. I'm going to preorder it (because EA is forcing me to) and as long as it's better than BC2 I'll probably love it.
But unlike some of you, even when I'm hyped about a game, I don't necessarily agree with every feature that's added to the game and praise it as the perfect messiah of gaming.

If you turn on wartapes in BC2 it gives you little taste of what sound modification might look like. The sound quality is crappy as hell (which is why I disabled it even though it made me un-knifable) and BF3 will improve it by miles (I certainly hope so).

Also machine guns for medics and the other BC2 classes are very probably going to make a comeback since Dice said it they preferred it to BF2142's classes (they said this in a video about BF4F) and it's why they're used in BF4F too.

What exactly do you think I don't understand? I've probably played BC2 more than you did.

What are you talking about? The whole point of war tapes is to give you that gritty, in-the-heat-of-battle feel. Having a highly processed sound output is probably the worst thing they could do. By adding that noise in the background and dirtying it a bit, they achieved a sound of war no other shooter has. Just not liking it personally doesn't make the quality crap.

im ok with medics having lmgs, its better than medics having a voss, or baur.

The lmgs are god awful at moving combat. they are great medium, long range, but no better than an assault rifle or submachine guns.

Any sort of movement while firing the lmgs make them innaccurate as hell, while the assault rifles and smgs can fire while moving sighted, or unsighted and keep reasonable accuracy, making them all better choices for close range combat. Long range combat, they are slightly worse than other weapon options, or equal. Keep in mind the difference between most weapons to get a kill is 1 bullet.


war tapes was actually a designed to provide the old ww2 footage sound and feel. All the different sound selections provide different feel also, i expect to see multiple options again.

Umm turn wartapes off, because I don't think you realize how bad it makes the game sound.
