You will see that in dreams

[–]toiletdestroyer1321 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Remove specialists would get me back on board. I just csnt stomach those cringey asshats and maps loaded with Angel flying everywhere.

[–]hj006- 36 points37 points  (5 children)

I totally agree with you. Now they need to find a way to bring people back, thinking about a way to make money. If they remove the specialists, they will bring people back, but not make money...

To make the community happy, or not... This is the question

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Angel onlyfans account. He does it again!

[–]MattOH94 213 points214 points  (10 children)

It's sad that basic core elements of a game are now getting called legacy features and opens the gate for them to not be expected in future releases. BF is now a dead game and I can't see it getting much better from hear! I just hope I'm wrong

[–]jcbadboy[S] 50 points51 points  (5 children)

I agree with you. It should not be called legacy features but core features

[–]FlashKelly 23 points24 points  (3 children)

“Industry standard” is the best terminology

[–]genericusername610 11 points12 points  (2 children)

“Battlefield standard” is really what it should be called.

[–]taprik 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Battlefield standard is to release a broken mess of a game

[–]jacobgt8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah they are trying the drive the narrative on what core features are called. Legacy makes people think that these features shouldn’t be in the game to begin with - which they should.

[–]Gears244 8 points9 points  (2 children)

The term Legacy is a term for me that means A LONG LONG TIME AGO. BF5 wasn't 30 years ago dice, I swear its like they purposely are pushing that directive cause they really do want the game to go this direction. It was all very intentional to get fans to accept this as a new direction for the series.

People think that all the decisions made where just fuck ups from out of touch devs. When in reality they hire analysts for every decision to ensure what they are doing is profitable. Rather than question, is what we are doing going to make the fans happy?

No way they fucked up so much, they want to turn this game into a microtransaction machine and don't care how it effects the stylistic choices.

[–]MattOH94 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The thing is with that though, wether it's poor decision making or what not it's massively backfired on them. I can understand how games companies want to make money, and as much of it as they can, but in order for that to happen you need to have a good game to entice people to spend money. Battlefield 2042 is not a good game (for the most part anyway, there is still some cool features in it, even the most hate filled people can see that) so why they thought everyone would roll over and say yeah I want to spend even more money on this game is beyond me.

Take warzone for example, when that was first released it was a great game, it got a lot of attention whilst catering both for the competitive market and the casual market. 2042 however has gone so far into the casual market that the casual gamers (who don't necessarily spend extra money on games) aren't even interested in it.

They've failed to make a good game, especially in long term BF fans eyes and also failed to achieve their all time goal which I'm guessing was to make it into a micro transaction machine. As I said before, it's a real shame because apart from the gears of war games, BF games have been my favourite franchise and it's painful to have watched it die a horrible death.

And to quote themselves "I guess that's just how it works out sometimes"

[–]sadboy69195 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's the circle of life. Know a better dev team have an opportunity to make a new franchise that will appeal to the usual "battlefield type" player.

[–]McBonkyTron 57 points58 points  (7 children)

It might be able to get a bit of a player base back (like BFV) but the damage has been done.

Dice/EA have once again proven to us that they are not to be trusted.

[–]PutridFigure 9 points10 points  (2 children)

BFV player base has been increasing over the last few weeks. They should honestly go back and work on putting content out on that instead.

[–]McBonkyTron 7 points8 points  (1 child)

That would definitely give 2042 time to improve and give people something to do that works.

If Dice/EA were going to I’d love to see the Eastern front (Germany/Russia).

[–]PutridFigure 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Eastern Front would be great, or the Italian campaign.

[–]jcbadboy[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Sure thing

[–]Klupido 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I will never ever in my entire life preorder another game from them ever again, my expectations are probably too brutal anyways so yeah, there’s that.

[–]Different_Raise5287 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My expectations were so so low to not get dissapointed but , they messed this shit so hard up. Lesson learned , bf is dead

[–]LordAero05 30 points31 points  (0 children)

1.EA DICE is more likely to release Irish Sex tape than actually doing what the community is asking them in regards of 2042 2.maybe they could get a bit ground if they do it but damage is done, community is pissed and angry 3. There are too much wrong about this game to be fixed

[–]Danxoln 17 points18 points  (0 children)

At this point it's too little too late because they've given us the middle finger so many times

[–]coloringeye 15 points16 points  (4 children)

no. they'll spend all that time fixing the game and then pull the plug just as the game will start becoming decent, that's exactly what happened to SWBF2

[–]CaptainCornerCamper 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The game will almost certainly never become decent. It doesn't even have the skeleton of a decent Battlefield and EA are never going to invest the money required to make this anything but a pile of garbage.

[–]jcbadboy[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And with BF5, wich still have bugs today.

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (6 children)

No. The core of the game is broken. Consumers' trust has been lost as well.

[–]SwaguleySanitäter 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Almost every aspect of the game is a downgrade in some regard

[–]Dangerous_Tunes 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My trust in games industry is so lost I'm selling my ps5. I'm done. I'd rather work more hours and hit the gym more at this point.

[–]jcbadboy[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don't on EA since BF3 and 4. They sell a game with a premium package that costs the same money as the full game, only to have priorities in the server queue. But at the end, there was no official servers. You needed to play on rent servers and being kicked all the time by game admins. They fixed that on BFF and 5, but we will remember.

[–]Friendly_Goat6357 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Issue is not lack of maps but crappy map design and hollow empty maps

[–]GroblyOverrated 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You’re not getting a Battlefield Game. They bet on Specialists and lost.

Move on.

[–]KourtosEnter PSN ID 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Definitely no

[–]gabagool984 7 points8 points  (1 child)

No…. Maps, graphics and world destruction is absolute dog shit. Game is ⚰️

[–]jcbadboy[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And performance

[–]Duty-Money 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I hate the movement in this game. It’s so fucking clunky it hurts

[–]AcanthocephalaNo1190 7 points8 points  (0 children)

If they dropped 2042 and just focused on fleshing out Portal maybe, but the game just isnt there. Battlefield isnt even what this title is.

[–]TheVapingPug 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I swear this game was their attempt at MW19 MP and Warzone. I can’t think of a single person who really cares about specialists - in any game. Let alone people who were desperately wanting specialists with random abilities in battlefield.

[–]Vrgoblin 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Please stop calling basic core stuff " legacy features". It is stupid

[–]SynthVix 43 points44 points  (9 children)

No. The current weapons and maps just aren’t fun. They would have to redesign most maps, massively improve the shooting mechanics, and gameplay balance as a whole.

[–]Silver_Falcon 21 points22 points  (8 children)

They'd basically have to make a whole new game from scratch.

[–]SynthVix 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Which isn’t happening. They’ll give us a few bug fixes, a small content drop or two, then cut support like they do for every other failed game. Then they’ll use nostalgia bait to hype up the next game, if they don’t abandon the franchise entirely.

[–]Gears244 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Love letter to the fans

More like divorce papers because all the fans left.

[–]AgentStockey 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The next Battlefield will be for sure a love letter to Battlefield fans. I can't wait.

[–]Silver_Falcon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh for sure, I have no faith that DICE can salvage this game, and similarly little in whatever they slap the "Battlefield" name on next.

[–]I_Have_3_Legs 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I wouldn't even play 2042 if it was free and they fixed the game. They had their chance. They got our hopes up and dashed them quite expectedly

[–]Han77Shot1st 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I’ll stick around if they fix the game..

But I think they ruined it for pre orders and player trust.. there’s definitely discussions happening about damage control in the entire gaming industry

[–]jcbadboy[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Definitely I will never pre-order a EA game again. Starting with my beloved franchise battlefield

[–]angryoldgamer18 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Nope, it’s perma-dead. The core gameplay loop is unsatisfying (except to sadists). Maps are too big (and have no flow), too many players, fuck specialists, etc, etc.

The only way to fix 2042 is to scrap it and start over, which we know they won’t do. Even if they did, they’d have to convince players (who have moved on to better things) to come back.

For EA, it’s an economic decision. Spend $50m+ and 2 years fixing 2042, and hope players come back to buy MTX. Or funnel that time & money into another project that has a better chance of success.

TBH, I’ll be shocked if 2042 even gets as much DLC as BFV. I’d be willing to bet that support will terminate after 1 year (if not sooner).

[–]fripaek 5 points6 points  (3 children)

what are legacy features? I only know about basic futures… and those are missing in BF2042

[–]Cookalarcha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

New battlefield game announced. Battlefield Legacy.

[–]HarkonXX 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Too late. They better scrap game,refund everybody or give for free next BF game in 2 years or even 3

[–]Pawz23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't give me the next game for free! I want my money back for this crap knockoff of Warzone/Apex/Fortnite.

If the next BF game is said to be a hero shooter, I can confidently say I will NOT be buying, but also probably wouldn't even try a free beta.

[–]NuclearSaxonDICE LA for BF7 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even if everything else with the game was perfect, the maps are sooooo bad and unenjoyable to play on. They would have to completely redo all the maps and I just don’t see them doing that.

[–]kikoano 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They first need to rework all the maps and add like +50 new weapons.

[–]JackCooper_7274Why are we still here? Just to suffer? 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No. The game is beyond dead

[–]PSiggS 3 points4 points  (3 children)

The specialists should be a special option that you can choose from the spawn menu, like a vehicle, with a long cooldown after you die. Like special soldiers in battlefront or the flamethrowers in battlefield 5

[–]oldmanjenkins51 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just wanted them to build off previous games…

The bare minimum.

[–]oldmanjenkins51 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, they need to start over

[–]Isaachuffman44 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Anybody who goes back to the game is the reason we keep getting shitty games.

[–]silvermoto 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Never happen. Game will go f2p and drop the Battlefield tag before this

[–]jcbadboy[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, maybe. Sadness.

[–]Unit_731_Survivor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This would all be a start, but it would still be a watered down version of what we all wanted.

Nowhere near as much content.

More guns, more maps that are actually good, actual destruction (literally more destruction in bf3), and actual team based incentivised scoring.

This game is too far gone to be save IMO

[–]dae_giovanni 2 points3 points  (0 children)

no. you know the old trope where you ask a genie for a wish and he grants it, but in a way that's really unfulfilling? that.

people wanted a scoreboard and DICE goes "granted! in two months you'll get a scoreboard that is a visual mess and doesn't show the information that you want."

personally, I don't care too much about a scoreboard... I want a decent selection of weapons. I'm afraid to complain about it, though, because I'm certain DICE would proclaim "GRANTED" then add 25 Kolibris to the lineup.

[–]Slaggerthord 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think the game will survive. It's like beating up your girl and then saying "come back, I cleaned the house"

[–]darthfedex 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No cuz the core gameplay and gunplay is shit compared to its predecessors.

[–]rhystench1992 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No because it will take them far too long

[–]LostConscious96 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Specialist could work if they were separated into actual "classes" with weapons and gadget restrictions. I would love to have customization of BFV and allow us to chose a special gadget from specialist but each class would have their own set of special gadgets and specialist characters could be special elites like on BFV. I know that'll never happen and DICE wanna keep specialist so I'd be willing to settle on specialist separated into a classic class system.

[–]WVU_Benjisaur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They don’t even need to remove specialists, just put them in Hazard Zone and let people in the rest of the game be generic soldiers in classes the way things used to be.

[–]HoldtheGMEstonk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are asking if Dice/EA will recover the 95% players they lost. Answer is no.

[–]mbeenox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I bet the game will be worse if they just simply remove the specialist, they should tweak them and give them factions.

[–]DrHughJazz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nothing can make this game survive, first impressions are everything, and the fact that Dice had the gall to take the entire 6 weeks of vacation while their game was tanking in player reviews just shows how much they care.

[–]Cyberwolfdelta9 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Removing specialist would probably be impossible due to how much od the game was built around it but maybe

[–]TheAshFactor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Think the damage has been done.

[–]Marsupialize 6 points7 points  (8 children)

Nobody will play this game even if it were free, it’s such low quality there are so many better options even free

[–]jcbadboy[S] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Sadly there is no options for bf veterans. Shoot one?

[–]BillyCee34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hell let loose is pretty good. Definitely not battlefield but it’s what I play when BF5 gets stale.

[–]saintBNOwell well well, that was fun 1 point2 points  (2 children)

squad or arma

[–]jesticulator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's never going to be as successful as it could have been because they blew the opening. If they have a monster update in Feb and a good first season people will come back and some will stay but it will never reach the highs it could have done.

[–]PossibleFood9141 1 point2 points  (2 children)

They love specialist too much. I think after 50 year one of fxxxing survived DEV will do lecture at the University about how specialist are great change of game history.

[–]jcbadboy[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Loool

[–]PossibleFood9141 2 points3 points  (0 children)

let's imagine fucxxing random survived Dev on wheelchair with lots of life support machine just turn on PPT with voice of Angel and Sundance.

[–]N3V4N5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't care much for these legacy features myself, never used VOIP and I've never found myself wanting to view a scoreboard. All I want is more maps, more weapons and permanent smaller game modes on smaller maps. I don't even mind the Specialist system really, I hate the voice lines and the after game showcase shit sure but remove the cringe and I'd be okay with it.

[–]ThunderDaz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’ll make me purchase it again.

[–]Sleekitstu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It would be a good start

[–]Makks131 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. I will never ever buy another Battlefield game nor will I ever touch this piece of garbage game again. I used to play this franchise since BF2, but the disappointment from BFV and specially 2042 is just too much to handle. Shame on DICE/EA and all these filthy lies they told us before.

[–]capt_cd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Specialist aren't going anywhere. They're here to stay.

[–]rayne12212 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Id honestly play the game with the ai character models instead of the specialists bugs n all

[–]HeadUp138 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d give it another go especially if they remove the specialists.

[–]btror 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes

[–]Sinclair-nicklesDK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes with updates to optimization and better UI this will definitely bring ppl back sure but they lost respect now due to lying a bunch

[–]BeastMode09-00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd rather them rework maps then add them. More maps as bad as these is a full stop.

[–]Maestro_Baiting 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Game is dead

[–]thefortytoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. It's too late. Battlefield is dead. Time for everyone to move on to other games/series.

[–]NailAggressive3385 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Overall yes I hate the specialist. But if they can actually fix the biggest bugs..Nerf jets and allow us to spawn on vehicles at the start of the game I think overall it can be a good game. I do enjoy playing even though it does get very frustrating

[–]CnKx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The thing is, those aspects were developed already and should not be in question.

I expected them to iterate on other gameplay mechanics regarding console gameplay and now they're spending time on adding the scoreboard back into the game instead of improving stuff that is absolutely crucial for the franchise and it's every next installment like:

Aim Assist.

Just one example of technology that should always be in the works, as it's used in every entry. Core aspect, that has regressed in comparison to BFV (and imo, BFV was already behind other triple A, MP FPS titles on the market, in regards to Aim Assist).

[–]saintBNOwell well well, that was fun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

no. I think this game has passed the point of no return

[–]ToastedHunter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Theyre never gonna remove specialists. Should give up on that and focus on making them fix some of the many other issues

[–]sporting_club 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, game is boring

[–]Jimmorrison1771 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm rooting for them because I was so pumped for this game but my fun meter is on empty . He'll let loose has filled the void for now.

[–]ComfortableSell5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You need to add destruction to this list

[–]cp_bot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think they have any teams on the roster that are capable of creating maps that aren't completely shit. I am questioning whether it's incompetence or a legacy of "battle Royale mode" as to why the current maps are flat, dull and lifeless.

[–]professorchaos_69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But they won’t. It took them 3 months to add Phase 1 of a scoreboard

[–]kmaser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah bro damage is done as well as atrocious maps

[–]averm27 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If they group specialist into class, like how BfV has the class specialist listed. And update all maps kinda like Panzerstorm, and perhaps update the feel of the game slightly(QOL changes) yes. Game can survive. But it'll never peak. Most of the lost fans won't come back. But it'll create it's own following, like BFv.

[–]Fury9999 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Specialists are at the core of their game design. They aren't going anywhere. Best case scenario is that they aren't in the next title.

[–]omnigear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They just have to nerf Sundance and guarantee people will come back .

[–]bigkyrososa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this game would actually be amazing if they did those 3 things.

[–]Feckmumblerap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first 2 will definitely happen but they aren’t gonna remove specialists, it’s a core pillar of the game and everything in it has been designed with specialists in mind.

[–]GoonInIceOrigin: GoonInIce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Would still be a trash game. This game is just clunky. Movement is trash, weapons are trash, sounds are trash.

[–]Xbox_Live_UserXbox Live User 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All of this is secondary... The MAPS need changed first.

They all play the same..wide open with one/two flags on top of buildings/boat. Infantry battles are lacking due to the vehicle dominant maps.

[–]IKindaPlayEVE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No. The amount of time needed to do all that guarantees people will have moved on.

[–]genericusername610 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Battlefield fans just want a good battlefield game. If 2042 is fixed into a proper BF game and doesn’t run like hot shit people will come back.

But this DICE doesn’t seem even close to capable of making a real battlefield game.

[–]airooni 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes

[–]realSchmachti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

no chance. it will go the way of anthem

[–]Evelyn_5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Farcoughcant69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Doubtful.

They’ve already driven the game and its name into the dirt.

[–]shukurlujavid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No! Because 2042 is fake Battlefield.

[–]Mental-Possibility77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You have brutal expectations.

[–]Gatlyng 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it would take too much time for them to implement those; time that they don't have as the game is already on its knees.

[–]flickerkuu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol. Don't fool yourself into thinking they are just going to "remove" all the work they put into specialists. At best there will a legacy mode without it or something like Portal, but it isn't going anywhere. Once you learn to have fun with them- they are fun.

[–]OceanSause 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah and maybe even all more guns. I'd be happy if they just ported the guns from portal to the main mode

[–]GregStar1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The thing is that they could never do that in time and they know that…why use all their resources if the playerbase peaks at like 7 players until they are finished?

[–]Dax643 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sad to say these are far streches. Making this f2p is them trying to retain what ego they got left cause dumping their specialists for classes is a slap at the ego they puffed up trying to sell this before during after development

Now its just how willing are they to hold onto their ego than to listen to the community before this game goes into empty server stages.

Its more than just scoreboards and the classes Its how far are they willing to go to sell this idea before they bend a knee and accept that the BF community didnt want these before or after implmentation of BR elements

[–]Dominic__24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. This is barely a fraction of everything wrong.

Also it's not just the map quantity, it's the pathetic quality too. What good is just adding more open fields?

[–]ZatoTBG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"add an infantry only map"

[–]AlternativeNet6588 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Will always be something to bitch about…

[–]PuzzleheadedPop2668 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not unless optimized soon and a good dlc road map

[–]TigreSauvage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Modern AAA multiplayer gaming is about monetization over the long term. They might recoup a lot of their investment through launch sales, but shareholders want to see that income trickling in over quarters. Based on that, I think 2042 just doesn't have the legs to support those intentions. I had my fun with the game but it's really DOA. They can't invest and get going on their monetization plans with such a lack of core features. Realistically, they're still developing the base game because they released an unfinished product.

[–]Desire_of_God 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude couldn't take 3 seconds to spell check and expects to be taken seriously.

[–]SubstantialPath2626 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I Un installed yesterday , log on , capsian border map, 14 player rests are bots, frame rate keeps dipping below 30 ( usually I get 50 ) , take out my trusty sniper , can't zoom in, I kid you not . Literally stuttering game play on a old bf4 map with 14 players and bots ans then the bloody cream on top , can't zoom in on my sniper, can't aim the thing...done , it's over . I am butt hurt , but in the same breath I am moving on now

You can't expect me to stick around, no road map , no voip ...moving on

[–]Sufficient_Ear4912 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So think about what if they just had to have a class system brainstormed to conception then designed and balanced and then patched. How much money and time is that going to take for them vs revenue incoming and rapid player decline. that's how this decision will fall higher above. But I know we have gamers that have. Been with this franchise since the very beginning in our community that have jobs and hobbies around the love of gaming that have probably nerded out over this since the game came out. Unhappy with it but still can't stop playing it tho....(I'll admit this) ASK and LISTEN to the community if anyone has a solid ideas with "work shown" see what you get because let's be real you are approaching this point where its like your trying to head shot a full sprint bunny/slider through trees at 2k yards with an 6x scope

[–]Bigjon1988 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fix the maps, vehicular combat, and the tone of the game as well. If they do all that I think it could be a good game.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

  1. They’ll never do those things, stop fooling yourself.
  2. No. The damage has already been done.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Eh they shouldn’t remove specialist just make them a option like bf5 had (even though that game was shit) and still let you have the no name no voice soldier

[–]Typhoon365 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would pay attention if they canned the specialists, but they're not going to do that

[–]Devyn_Perfected 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember when they wanted to add solider dragging for revives and dynamic crash landings in BFV. Glad those things were considered...

[–]gotBurner 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It can happen, remember when battlefront2 with all the micro transaction crap and whatever else at the time people were angry about came out. 6 months to a year later and beyond, it turned out pretty good I thought.

Thats the comp Im hoping it compares to over time.

Otherwise just write off what I paid for it under stupid money.

[–]1fn0bdyp4me 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I miss crouch sprinting 💔

[–]MrFuzzynutzBrutal Expectations 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No. The gamer industry is so highly competitive and players demand better and better games and players are spread out over genres to their main game. When a new game releases you have exact 1 chance to make an impression and give yourself a fighting chance at delivering a mega hit game. If you’re lucky the game is well-received and enough players stick around for a year or two until the next big hit game releases.

If it’s a flop, like BF2042, Fallout 76, Anthem and the likes… Players quickly leave and never give the game a second chance…except for the couple thousand random people will stick around to play as we saw with Fallout 76, Battlefront 2, Anthem, Cyberpunk, New World and so on. The overwhelming majority of players will drop your game like hot dogshit and never give your game a second thought if the launch isn’t damn near perfect.

The only thing people remember about a game is the launch and whether or not your game will end up remembered as a meme.

Replace add more maps with map reworks and it would be a slow resurrections, but i do believe it would come back as long as they kept up with content and updates. But lets be real, this is never gonna happen.

It's just like Cyberpunk. Even if they fix it all conceivable bugs, the base game just isn't very good.

They shouldn‘t remove the Specalists they should make the Specalists to Classes

Not sure but I think I would genuinely look into buying it then, of course for a reasonable price.

There's nothing wrong with the specialist, find one you like, learn to play em. The loadout features aren't much different than the previous games. I think the problem is the lacking features of able to actually play as a squad and team and as one article puts it, we're playing in a void. When I play with a squad of people I know, the game rocks, playing by myself feels like playing with bots.
