Battlefield didn't have SP until BC. It fit with the whole "Who cares about SP if lack of SP means that much more awesome of a MP?" mentality. Bf2 had great multi, personally it not get boring fast. It was also great for modding and to this day I play BF2 in mod form (PR).

What is wrong with a restricted class system? Nothing. It simply makes teamwork more of a requirement. Instead of being able to fulfill multiple roles with one class, it further specializes. This specialization not only allows for more ways to deal with situations, but also more teamwork. Instead of going rambo with a tank as engineer in BC2 and being able to effectively destroy other tanks with your rockets and repair your own tank, you had to use 2 players to fulfill that one role (Engineer and AT).

I'm hoping they mean to set their sights on Call of Duty as the dominant FPS game, rather than play-style. Given the amount of hype riding on this game from pre-Bad Company vets (like myself) that want a proper Battlefield 2 sequel, i am hoping they stay true to their roots.

You know I was always a huge fan of CoD and hated BF. After BFBC2 I am hooked!!! I really hope they keep the game mechanics the same. If they try and make a knock off CoD I will really be disappointed
I hope you are disappointed then. Bad Company was the console battlefield made to appeal to CoD fans, and i don't think any BF vet wants BF3 to appeal to CoD fans.

i am a bf vet and i want it to appeal to cod fans. Because even the mouth breathers deserve to bask in the light. Better sales means they will continue to create battlefield games, rather than switch to a cod knockoff.

I miss roaming the destroyed and abandoned enemy city and planning sneak attacks, also epic air fights that made you feel so accomplished. I like BFBC2 but I just wish it had at least some maps with the same feel as the original.

But much of the COD population these days is 10-15 year old boys on their consoles. I don't want BF3 to appeal to this type of player base.

The majority of CoD players are lonewolf/one man army types. Having medics who don't use their defibs/pills or assault who don't throw ammo make me want to punt kittens into blenders.

I think they mean they just aim to take them down as one of the most popular current PC FPS's. I sure hope they don't mean to beat CoD at their own game by making the same thing but "better".

What do you mean the single player was awesome? BF2 had no single player. If you mean Bad Company/Bad Company 2, then that's different, and is kinda considered a completely different series to a lot of people (including myself).

And the bashing single player is because people played Battlefield 2 for multiplayer only. People want the developers to 150% focus on the multiplayer and not even consider a campaign. Don't devote resources to a part of the game that nobody cares at all about.

I agree, but I pray that they can make it appeal to CoD fans without being anything like CoD. If they have to resort to doing that to appeal to them, then forget it. Screw the CoD fans. (not saying screw CoD, I don't dislike it, although I am growing tired of it now)
