I disagree that there aren't tactics and strategy, but I will say that the maps do seem to be, on average, a bit smaller.
The only CoD thing from it, in my opinion, are the squad rewards, and I very much wish that they had stuck with callable deployables, not the V2. The V2 should be something that is a reward for map control, and should likely only be on the german side. Other sides should have other rewards. Not behemoths, but something else.
This is the most battlefield a game has been since BF2, or Bad Company 2 in my opinion. My biggest complaint would be map size, and the lack of a commander, which results in a lack of team cohesion. Sure, very few people listened to the commander, but a good commander and some squads that listened could make all of the difference in the world previously. I'd love to see them bring commander mode back.
