Let me first start off by saying that I did not want Commander to return to Battlefield 4 and I did not miss it in BF3. I also wrote about that and what I thought Commander Mode would be like. I was pretty spot on with my hunches.

So Battlefield 4 has a commander mode and I have played it a bit and figured out the system and all that and I found it to be wanting. Now why would a guy that didn’t care for Commander Mode and didn’t miss it be playing it? Well, the easiest answer is that it’s part of the game and I play the entire game. I didn’t care if it returned or not, but that did not mean that I didn’t like it in the past or don’t like it now. I always feel that something in the game that is alright could be made better and that if you have some ideas, you should share them.

So, here we are.

First, let me say that I do not mind a persons opinion on a game. It is their opinion and most the time it doesn’t really matter, much like my own 😀 . For those that know me on forums or in-game know that I don’t really care if someone has a different opinion from me. What does get me though is when people try to state their opinion as a fact and/or state something with nothing to back it up with.

What is a Battlefield 2.5er? – This is a person who loved the Battlefield 2 game, or in most cases only played BF2, and after that only wanted every Battlefield game after that to be Battlefield 2.5. These people usually did not like 2142 and hated and despised the Bad Company Series and Battlefield 3. The reasoning they give for hating those games is because “they are not truly Battlefield”. Features are gone that were in BF2, such as VoIP, squad numbers, commander, smaller maps, different weapon customizations, etc… They are fanatical that Battlefield 2 was the best game in the entire series and any deviation from that is not Battlefield.

One of the most talked about feature for Battlefield 4 is the return of Commander. I mentioned in my last commander article how I thought we would see the return of that position as well as changes to it. It looks like we were not disappointed. DICE has made a number of changes that will affect the entire position of commander and how it will play. Though the premise is the same, it is different from both Battlefield 2 and 2142.

I have been wanting to write an update on the new commander mode for some time, but have not really had enough information. Since E3 and the release of the Battlelog 2.0 updates, I think we have a pretty good understanding of the mode now.

So I was thinking about the lost blog writings at TGN and decided to see if Google still had them cached. Sure enough they have a few of them! So I decided to move these here. This was originally posted on June 10th, 2013. One day before the announcement of Commander Mode in BF4. Enjoy!

Ah Yes! The great Commander of Battlefield. The one thing missing in BF3 that would have made it a TRUE Battlefield sequel and not some other exact copy of Call of Duty. Yes, Yes, never mind all the extra game modes and the vehicles and the air power, without Commander, Battlefield is just a CoD wannabe.

We all know that BF3 died quickly in the gaming community because of this one feature. Four months within release the game was a ghost town. You can’t even find servers anymore so DICE is quickly making BF4.

Now, back to reality; BF3 did not have commander. It was one of the features that the community LOUDLY wanted to help make BF3 better (making it BF2.5 for many) and giving those that have not experienced a true Battlefield game something to REALLY get into. Alas, it was not meant to be, but BF3 has still survived and doing well.

As many of you may know, I did not care if BF3 had commander or not. After my years in BF2 and 2142 I had my share of it and the way DICE set up BF3, it really wasn’t something needed. Recon and Support covered most the roles of commander with the artillery, supplies, MAVs, and TUGs. Squad leaders still had the ability to give orders, though for those that read my teamwork post and play Battlefield know how well that goes. (more…)
