Quoteworthy: DICE on Lack of Annual Battlefields

"I think the core Battlefield idea that we're working on at DICE is... We can't build a game at DICE every year," Battlefield 4 executive producer Patrick Bach said during Gamescom according to Videogamer. "You saw with Battlefield 3, for instance, it's not that there's not an urge for more Battlefield. You mentioned Premium we [had] 18 months worth of Battlefield and people want more things during that time. Now it's been almost two years and people feel like they are continuously playing we still have huge amounts of players playing Battlefield 3. So I think in general, people apparently want Battlefield all year round."

I play this game way too much, I know...

But to reply to that spray and pray argument, currently my favorite weapon is the ACW-R and I never use 1 shot mode. There is no point, even on hardcore, unless you are really really close, getting a first shot head-shot is extremely unlikely, you want 3 to 4 shot bursts. The ACW-R puts out 4 rounds in the time you fire 1. Which means you are suppressed, and I survive. Of course, there is a strong urge to just hold the click for a bit longer, by that time the ACW-R has put out 16 bullets and most of them in the scenery.... so burst fire ftw...

Either way, I am impartial to either modes. I can play good in HC and good in Normal, but the play styles differ drastically. Hardcore requires deep thought as to where I move in what posture and at what speed, in HC I also am usually running a full silenced engineer build, where as in normal I often play Assault or Support...

Silenced ACW-R that is. Sadly engineers don't have smoke grenades..

dude i have twice your time played and I feel like i don't play very often. I pretty much stopped, just waiting for BF4 now.

Well often in -my- scale of course Compared to you I am playing "rarely" ;p Still I don't suck at it, I just get very quickly bored of 1 game. And in case of BF3 there are sometimes weeks in between phases where I want to play again. 400 hours is the magical barrier that I barely reach when a MP Game I really want to play has been out for 2 years. And as you can see, I only recently got above 400 hours, just in time for BF4

I scratched 380 hours in BC2, and now 400 in BF3... when you think about it I guess 400 hours played over 2 years is not particularly much ;p But it's what seems to be my "level of playing" when it comes to MP shooters... although with Shooters, what I really mean is Battlefield.
