I hardly ever see people mention this game. Seems somewhat forgotten.

2142 was really enjoyable, I still have it I think. It's a shame very little people play it, I loved the titan game mode.
User avatar #46 to #9 - Kainim (06/26/2013) [-]
and I'm loving it, I missed the chain of command and importance of keeping your squadleader alive (and him making good descissions). bf3 is just a free for all ******** with no decent group action

I'd just like to say I felt like 2142 could have been really fantastic, but it was really a bit bland

i realy hope they plan to make battlefield 2143, that'd be so ******* awesome .

I've got a way to solve this problem.

The commander only gets points or EXP (or whatever is awarded) if the command causes a positive outcome or victory.

Other players get EXP for executing the order whether or not it does good.

Worried about troll commanders? Not anymore, you have to be a relatively high level to be a commander.
User avatar #20 to #16 - ronyx (06/26/2013) [-]
That could backfire as high level players tend to get bored and just play for ***** and jiggles.
User avatar #22 to #20 - doodogger (06/26/2013) [-]
You can't completely eliminate trolling, but you can minimize it to a big degree.
User avatar #21 to #20 - doodogger (06/26/2013) [-]
Yeah that could happen, maybe lower the commander requirements, but not too low. An intermediate level player is less likely to **** around than a low or a high.
#36 to #16 - Rascal (06/26/2013) [-]
i apologize for answering as an anon but by that logic couldnt troll commanders just make troll orders to level up troll players that follow blindly to get troll experience so they may in turn become that very troll commander?


p.s. i love the idea but it seemed like a flaw that needed to be addressed sorry....Q_Q please dont kill me
User avatar #37 to #36 - doodogger (06/26/2013) [-]
Yes that is possible, but how often would that actually happen? Only time will tell. Like I said, you can't completely eliminate trolling, but you can minimize it to a degree.
#45 to #16 - mattymc (06/26/2013) [-]
BF3 is pretty similar with regards to issuing and following orders to take or defend objectives, but whether or not orders will be followed or even issued is a crapshoot
User avatar #47 to #16 - perseeus (06/26/2013) [-]
All this commander mode reminds me of that old natural selection mod from half life

Thank you good sir I've never played BF3 before. Ok, once

I wasn't sure if anyone would like my idea because I might be ignorant of what causes the problems and how they actually work.

I play COD often, but I want to get BF3 because it sounds like a more mature game. Plus the gigantic maps, more realistic recoil, aircraft, vehicles, destructible structures, projectiles instead of "scans", and a team emphasis. Like I said I've played it once so I understand why you like it so much. I think I'm growing out of COD.
User avatar #44 to #29 - vicsix (06/26/2013) [-]
Beware of the weapon sway. 2 things in the game that pissed me off and ruined it quite a bit is the way over done weapon sway and the sun glare.

You're probably right, but I bet the players are at least a little bit more mature than COD, on average.

I feared that.

Yeah they should, consoles should just share the same online system.
User avatar #54 to #33 - snowshark (06/26/2013) [-]
Can you imagine the massive DJ 4DM1Nistration issues that would come whenever Microsoft/SONY wanted to make a change to the system that would benefit their own consoles more than the other's? Or how much chatter there would be if you got all the people crying about which console is best in the same game?

What would be better isn't all consoles working on the same online system, rather different online systems being able to connect to the same servers. That way, no matter which console you bought, you could play cross-platfiorm. It would still bring a swathe of mindless fanboy babbling but it would at least connect people.

However that won't happen. One of the biggest factors in video games are the players and if you've got a ton of friends on one console, you're less likely to switch to the other... unless you can still play with them on that other console.

It also brings up issues in terms of communication as people cross-console may have issues sending messages if the consoles use different systems and party chats and the whole shebang.

Very rarely is something as black and white as the consumers want it to be. The XBoner's policies were pretty fair considering what they could have been. Granted, they were bloody awful and I'm glad they're gone but still, they were decent considering what Microsoft were trying to do.

As much as we gamers like to separate things into good and bad, it just doesn't slide that way.
User avatar #114 to #54 - doodogger (06/27/2013) [-]
I don't like it when people try to separate everything into good and bad, wrong and right.
User avatar #115 to #114 - snowshark (06/27/2013) [-]
Yeah. It's naive. Yes, there are two sides to the debate of ethics, wrong and right, but they're contextually guided and it's not binary on-off, right-wrong. It's a spectrum where the decision you make lands somewhere between the two. No decision is going to be the perfectly right one nor the wrong one.

The same is true with most of the world. It's why I dislike a lot of Superheroes. Not all, mind, but a lot of them. Superheroes are built on the concept that there are two sides to the battle, good and bad. But it's the heroes who tread the line like Batman or The Punisher that are interesting.

Batman doesn't actively do bad things but it is arguable that what he does do causes bad things to happen. It causes people to become villains and criminals to become more serious and professional in their conduct, making them harder for the police to catch.

It's those kinds of dilemmas that make good superheroes.

Speaking of Batman, check this out.

It's also those dilemmas that give a plot to a superhero movie lol.

Yeah also some issues could seem good or bad either way depending on how you frame the issue. Abortion for example. Liberals tend to frame abortion as a civil liberties issue, so therefore abortion is okay because it's all the women's body and she should be able to do what she wants with it. Then there is the conservative view which frames it as a human rights issue, where the baby is a human being and as a human deserves the right to be born and live and the mother should take responsibility for their existence and not try to get rid of the embryo/fetus because it is not convenient.
User avatar #117 to #116 - snowshark (06/28/2013) [-]
I stand on the liberal side. It's the same as dealing with a period. Until the foetus gains consciousness it's just a mass of cells.

If it truly was as the conservatives say then every period is breaking that rule.

#81 to #59 - Rascal (06/26/2013) [-]
Did so. A lot.

uhh



yes
User avatar #61 to #60 - sadaros (06/26/2013) [-]
Seriously doubt that the majority playing BF3 and "soon" BF4 will have
User avatar #62 to #61 - alleksi (06/26/2013) [-]
well it really doesn't matter.


It's not like everyone who played BF2 was a gentleman and a scholar.

Being a commander is pretty lame. it's not a position that everyone's going to rush for. not to mention the commander can be kicked out if he's doing a ****** job.

it worked just fine in BF2, it's going to work just fine in BF4
#82 to #62 - Rascal (06/26/2013) [-]
Whenever you had a good commander that would assist the whole team and respond to the squad leaders requests, it was just so extremely fun.
User avatar #83 to #82 - alleksi (06/26/2013) [-]
it's easy to have a good commander


The difficult part is to have squads who follow the commanders orders.
If that happens then it's really ******* fun
User avatar #63 to #62 - sadaros (06/26/2013) [-]
I guess you are right, will probably be a lot of "hurr durr, im a troll" in the beginning, but it will get better over time.

And yes, was a lot of asshats in BF2 as well

majority, i know of several who has played them all as well, but since the series went "mainstream" a lot more people play it, and i don't think that is a bad thing in it self

we know how it going to end.....commander is pretty forward and easy job, main problem s to watch 5 of you guys ignore that you spoted the ****** around the corner and all dies and you get the blame if the team do bad

I just wish they could remove the "scan" ********

playing a commander is like playing a tank in mmo, you get all the blame when **** hits the fan, "troll" commanders will bring friends so they can't be mutiny or players who don't care that you're own team get artilery strike in the face and lose all you're tanks
#99 - MrOblivious (06/26/2013) [-]
For those who never played BF2, you're in for a treat with this ******** troll mode.

Back in Battlefield 2 we had Commander.

What usually ended up happening was the Commander sending artillery fire to his own team and dropping a vehicle on the aircraft carrier so he could drive around doing donuts. Oh and when they really felt like it, having a supply crate or vehicle dropped on your head.

I find that most of the battlefield community are nothing like call of duty players....so more organization would happen
User avatar #15 - I Am Monkey (06/26/2013) [-]
BF3 already has a function for giving orders and absolutely nobody follows them. You get points for having people "follow" your orders, so people just spam orders to attack/defend places that people are already in the process of attacking/defending.

There's no way in hell anyone's actually going to willingly follow the orders of their "commander" knowing that they're likely some 12 year old on their parents' tablet.

They had commander mode in Battlefield 2....
#40 to #39 - themurp (06/26/2013) [-]
I meant in terms of visuals. Though looking back at End War, it seems the difference is greater than I thought.
#43 to #40 - lordmoldywart (06/26/2013) [-]
< Battlefield 2 commander mode screenshot

I'd say Endwar looks as much like BF2, as BF4 looks like Endwar, so it's extremely unlikely BF4 ripped off Endwar. Chances are Endwar ripped off BF2, a game 4 years its elder
User avatar #104 to #43 - themurp (06/26/2013) [-]
No, all the symbols look different, colors too.
User avatar #112 to #104 - lordmoldywart (06/27/2013) [-]
My point was BF4 commander mode looked nothing like Endwar, and as such, Endwar looked nothing like BF2

I forgive you though, you just didn't know about BF2
User avatar #113 to #112 - themurp (06/27/2013) [-]
Well I don't have a picture but they are pretty similar (the previous picture was an angled version of the map). Although; I think I've dug myself a deep enough hole so I'll stop here. Anyways, End War was fun and B4 will probably be good too.
User avatar #101 - walkingdisaster (06/26/2013) [-]
BF4 looks like a copy and paste of BF3.
#98 - vedgetable (06/26/2013) [-]

User avatar #97 - PenguinsOfMars (06/26/2013) [-]
I really hope that there aren't commanders in every game type because I don't want to lose a game when my team is actually more skilled but our only noob is the commander.
#100 to #97 - MrOblivious (06/26/2013) [-]
In BF2 there was commander.

Your team won't lose if your commander is an idiot. Not sure how it's gonna work in BF4 but in BF2 they can order you to do stuff but you can simply ignore it.

Worst they could do was artillery you for fun. But you had a warning of incoming artillery so you could run before it hits.

It also had a mutiny feature, so you could throw the knob out of Commander mode.

BF4 would probably also have this feature, but then again EA turned into assholes, so who knows.
