Videos of the test version looked like crap. Why are people still interested in this.

Because as you probably figured out, we're all idiots unworthy of your respect or friendship. We deserve to be crushed under a cement truck and used as the mortar to build your pyramid so you can look down on us with scorn.

So 9 maps. And all 9 of those maps work with Rush mode... It's possible they are able to open up the maps a lot more and spread the flags out in 64 player matches but conquest using the rush capture points never felt like much fun. The maps were designed to follow a path so the farther down that path you go the more enemies you're likely to find in conquest...

It was never like the big open maps from bf2 that had you traveling all over the map.

Have they released any mini map images of how the conquest 64 player maps will look compared to the smaller map modes? (ie where the captures points will be?


Shit, give me El Alamein any day of the week

Hopefully EA sends me a 25% off code for my birthday next week so I can grab this on Origin (though I'd rather have it on Steam

Good to know there are 32 player versions of the conquest maps. That way server operators can mix rush and conquest maps in the rotation if they want to.

Seeing how the engagements in BC2 go with Rush, and the new "destruction via cap only" rule for m-com points this is imo mainly a balance thing. Since rush, unlike Conquest, is a game-mode where you have to destroy all to win the round, with 64 players you'd have situations where squads of 4 trickle in and get pwned by the concentrated defenders of 32 (if there'd be 64 players).

While in Conquest those 64 players spread out over all capture points in rush all 64 would be concentrated in 1 point, and that one point is the spawn of the defenders, it'd be total chaos.. not really fun

Which I'm plenty fine with. Conquest was the only mode worth a damn in BF2 and previous and Rush(the only other decent mode for a public server) is far too hectic and cramped already to double the user count
