Battlefield 2 takes the next logical step in team-based gaming with the introduction of squads and the commander chair. Together these two concepts provide the opportunity to execute a more cohesive strategy & squad-based tactics to complete the map objectives. The game, however, caters more towards the action gamer and offers up some features that detract from the immersive experience we're looking for.
This is where the Tactical Mod steps in to create a framework and environment to enhance the overall game-play and player experience. The mod attempts to create an immersive environment and place an emphasis on the execution of the team strategy and squad-based tactics. We also adjust the player classes, kit make-up, weapon & vehicle settings to balance the game-play for a more enjoyable experience.
