They better come out with mod tools, I want BF3 Project Reality.
One major reason why they may scrap commander is to bring down that aspect to a squad level. Too many times teams failed because the commander was fighting or simply awful and failed to provide squads who did want to teamwork with anything useful. By moving commander apps down to a squad level, those squads with players who do want to teamwork aren't negatively affected by someone higher up. It's about reducing those horrible walk overs where you're camped in your uncap because people can't work together.

Also, mod tools as said before... why bother? There is no commercial interest. 99.5% of mod players will already have the game, very few folk come into the game simply because of mods. It's about working out development of tools cost vs potential revenue.

I don't see how no leadership can result in more teamwork.

Instead of relying on your commander for leadership, you rely on the squad leader. Means if you're playing with mates, you don't rely on some fighting commander to provide you with supplies, UAV etc...

Essentially, de-centralising commander powers.

Similar. It's a way of making sure effective teamwork isn't dependent on a single commander.

True, but rarely did it happen. I mean, kick votes rarely happened as well because your average player doesn't vote, doesn't care or is just blind as to what exactly is going on.
