    At least it's a 8 (9?) day beta though. Starts Wednesday for EA Insiders.

    Tactical Brit mainly talks about Levelcap's critique on the new conquest flag points system...
    He largely leans towards Cheese's POV that Levelcap is off the mark here...

    The first thing I would like to point out is that Tactical Brit is making a couple of questionable assumptions, imo...
    (1) The game play in the Alpha (and presumably later the Beta<my extrapolation>) would be typical in the actual game.
    (2) Overwhelmingly most ppl (presumably in the pubs <my inference>) are interested in winning the game rather than playing for personal glory...

    And here is an extra one at no charge ;)
    (3) That people want more CoD style <my interpretation> gaming in conquest...

    I could go into further detail if the OP is interested...

    Interestingly he seems to disagree and agree with Levelcap's prophesy of "bunch balling"...

    Tactical Brit also mentions Levelcap advocating lone wolfing...
    I saw no evidence of this in Levelcap's video...
    I did constantly hear Levelcap's concern about the potential loss of strategic game play in aiding their team mates, however...

    Tactical Brit heavily agrees (in the sense he repeated his agreement a number of times) with Levelcap's concern about not enough incentive/reward for defense...

    BTW,I have a mild suspicion that Dice may be involving itself in psychological manipulation...I.E. covertly/deliberately introducing/not-introducing self evident necessities such as point compensation for defenders, simply to encourage greater community involvement and by doing so, creating an emotional investment/connection/ownership in the game...
    "They really do listen to us!"
    This may be a long bow to draw...<shrug>

    Tactical Brit wants conquest to be more action packed, more like CoD game play imo...
    What confuses me is that there are other modes of game play which can accommodate those who need to be entertained/involved a la ADHD (or CoD) style...

    Levelcap is advocating a more strategic orientation where as *Tactical* Brit seems to be more concerned with tactical/CoD/twitch-reflex/running-around considerations, imo...

    Tactical Brit has indicated/suggests the new Conquest has revitalised game numbers judging by the internet "noise" <my wording choice>

    I have been saying for some time now that the direction Dice/EA seems to be heading towards is the simplification of some aspects of the game...
    There are numerous references to this from others also...
    This may encourage simple raw recruits...
    Or it may be, as I have suggested/speculated several times now, the enticing/seducing of former CoD players...
    I hope that Dice/EA doesn't "kill the Goose that lays the golden egg" as a result of their desire for an increased profit margin...

    To my way of thinking, the conquest mode of the BF franchise has made BF what it is today...
    Should they really be intrusively/invasively messing with a proven recipe which has worked so well?
    Is their experimental incursion "a bridge too far"?
    Have the marketing men in the organisation performed a coup d'état, overriding good sense a la the marketing managers of Woolworths/Masters?

    It is interesting to me that I seem to display quite a bias/predilection...

    However... ;)
    To invoke an autistic motto:
    "Give me a better argument and I will listen..." ;)

    Rush First Impressions

    It does look like too many tanks for this player count. However, Levelcap throws in the usual ridiculous complaints -- "every Rush map should be catered to close quarter classes". Always pushing that COD, "run and gun" style and complains if DICE don't provide it.

    Only took 9 minutes to download...
    Big change from BF4...

    Question: Does the Beta support a joystick?
    I'm not sure if I am having a conflict issue or it just isn't supported...
