I know this may be a little early but for the love of God do not follow in EA's footsteps with the more u play and better the scorewhore you are the better kits you get crap,thats the one reason I will not play on EA's rank server list and if I can't find any servers with this BS disabled the game will be sitting on my shelf after I get boared with the SP side of it, or on Ebay. So pls do not rune FH2 with it,pls,pls,pls,this is the only MP game I like out there. CrimeScene
I agree. And the whole pts thing still won't weed out the good from the bad, it just will mean the bad players take a little longer to get good kits. Just leave the ranking and the unlockable weapons out, plz. FH is good as is, BF2 will make the gameplay better. We don't need the special pointwhore stuff.
nothing promotes camping and whoreing as much as a "More Points, more stuph" system
It's probably impossible for people to "mod" the ranking system anyway........
exactly. bf2 has bigass servers dedicated to keeping track of stats. we couldnt do a ranking system even if we wanted to.
the closest we can maybe get is a per-game system, where for example: support class is an mg34, with an mg42 in the unlock slot. a player plays a game and gets a certain number of points (say 25 or something) then they have the choice of using the mg42. when the game ends, the stats are reset.
the alternate class loadout is an interesting option, and we have a few ideas for it. I dont think we'll end up using a score-reward-unlock system, but rather just have them all unlocked to add more choice for classes (so players can choose which of two loadouts they want per class. some classes will only have one loadout) this requires a little more balanceing to make sure that both the loadouts are relitivly equal. So a british SMG class might have the choice of: sten, and 4 grenades, or alternatly, a thompson and 2 grenades.
I don't think I'll ever have to post again, McGibs reads my mind every time. Hopefully we can have weapon choice per class like he said. As it is now, only the primary weapon changes. Lets hope that BF2 is moddable enough that more can be changed than just the primary.
And so that the weapons aren't universal and are team based.
Once again, a problem. Who in their right mind choses a Sten over a Thompson? In FH, the Thompson is much better, more accurate, harder hitting, faster firing. You will have the problem where instead of taking the MP-40, all Germans will take STG. Just DON'T have the system in FH. It WILL ruin the gameplay.
The unlocked weapons are universal in the demo for BF2, but I think they are supposed to be side-specific for the full game, no?
