Hardcore is noobcore IMO, it is a sniper haven

Normal is noobcore...

You guys play Team Deathmatch too much. Now that is sniper haven on hardcore...

I'm conflicted with HC mode.

 

On one hand, the lack of screen clutter and no 3D spotting is great. Makes flanking much, much easier. A lot of people complain about the general weapon balance in HC, but I don't mind it for the most part (bolt actions are another story entirely...). I find it allows some of the slower ROF weapons to be somewhat useful.

 

On the other hand, there are some rather serious issues... Let's start with the basics. Mines, claymores, and slams all do damage against friendly units. Is it more 'realistic'? Sure. Does it add anything to the game? Apart from endless frustration, hell no. It's basically made them unusable in HC.

 

What about recon in HC? The only time HC is fun is when there is a sniper limit imposed (both DMR and bolt action), regardless of what game mode you are playing (before you say CQ is immune from sniper spam, it just isn't...). I don't think there really is any other way of fixing this unless they nerf the damage output of all sniper weapons (which I doubt will happen).

 

Finally team mates. I think I've lost count of how many times I've been TK'ed by panic fire... It just happens way to often in most games I play. Conversely, the amount of times I've 'accidentally' TK'ed someone else is pretty damn high as well. It seems to happen most often when I'm already engaging a target then a team mate just happens to run directly through my line of fire... Then I get punished for it...

 

I don't know if the above is different for other regions or platforms (I'm on PC and play EU servers only), but I just can't seem to enjoy HC enough to really invest serious time into it.

All your concerns are legit. The print in bold, however, far outweighs the rest of the flaws you pointed out (to me, atleast).

 

Mines, claymores, and slams, I don't use... and am wise enough to steer from when in a vehicle (both enemy and friendly).

 

Snipers? Yes, Hardcore is flooded with them... but not as much as Conquest. I never said CQ is immune to snipers, its just not flooded with them like the other hardcore game modes. Keep moving from objective to objective, and the amount of snipers in hardcore CQ will seem like any old normal CQ mode. So, please don't act like CQ is just flooded with snipers... because it's not...

 

As for teamkilling? There's just no way around it. Comes with the territory, my friend...

I pretty much play conquest, that's about it. HC could be ok if it weren't for snipers and all the noob teammates that kill you. In general, BF4 is noobcore. MBT law, airburst, ucav, active radar, I don't have to go on. They made a shooter where you don't have to aim :rolleyes:

Sounds like people are not playing enough Rush... Its the only game type I loved. The others were kinda boring to me.

post #159 of 258
Loved rush in BC2, not so much in BF3/4. Excited to try Titan mode though

Sounds like a ballistic shield is coming in the Dragon's Teeth expansion...

So, what cans are you guys using to annihilate your foes with! My main ones are the K612s...

how's the sound position in Bf 4 compare to BF 3? I find that in BF 3, it sucks and i couldn't even tell how far away the sound is. Even if a enemy is shooting right behind me, i wouldn't  know.

Positioning is the same as 3, but sounds are better. I think it's good with Dolby headphone. Using the th600 for the game. Thanks for the vids Martin, plan on watching them tonight.

Those new maps look pretty good, can't wait to rack up some road kills with the hovercraft.
