Awesome stuff, I'm stoked!
Right now I only have 2 issues:
1: Specialists. 10 at launch, so far we know of 4 (which are named after the typical Battlefield classes):
- Recon (Drone gadget + local motion sensor passive perk). He is Casper from South Africa
- Assault (Grapple gadget + Nimble perk). He is Webster from Canada
- Engineer (Turret gadget + turret buff perk). He is Boris from Russia
- Support (Health dart gun gadget + defibs for insta revive @ full hp). She is Maria from Germany
I really don't like this because I HAVE to be Casper to get that specific "Recon Specialist" gadget/perk combo. Likewise for medic, I HAVE to play as Maria if I want the HP Darts + Defibs. 64 players on a team, we're going to have 20 Maria's running around PER TEAM O_o (just want to say, I have zero problem with women on the battlefield, especially one set in 2042).
A big concern here is also that customization (helmets, etc) will be tied to specialist type.
Why in the sweet hell can't I just pick for myself? I just want a generic solder I can customize - I want to be Canadian (cool if they let us rep that on Dog Tags like BF4), I want to pick any Specialist class, and then I'll do up my clothing/armor and weapons.
Issue #2 is I'm just hoping and praying for good netcode with 128 players on higher tickrate servers
Also reallyyy hoping for community servers with full admin control at launch... anyway still really pumped and can't wait for more info & gameplay!
