The team at DICE are asking the Battlefield 4 community what they should balance next!? I know a lot of you will be saying fix the game and so forth but if you are interested in what they are going to balance then read on!
[DICE] H Brun had this to say:
We have a wide range of tweaks planned to further balance the core gameplay of Battlefield 4 in upcoming patches. But we need your help in identifying next steps. Let us know what we should focus on next by voting in our balancing poll.
We have a lot of balancing items in the pipeline for our upcoming Battlefield 4 patches, and we will be able to share them and the rationale behind them soon. In the meantime, we would love to hear your opinions on some of the additional balancing ideas that we could add to the mix. Let us know what you think in the poll below, and on the behalf of the entire team here at DICE: Thanks for your dedication!
Here are the balancing requests
1. ATTACK BOATS AIR DEFENSE
Players have suggested that the Attack Boats could have superior anti-aircraft abilities. Possible suggestions include improving the Anti-Aircraft ability of the BURST CANNON, adding a MAA style 20MM CANNON, or additional types secondary missiles with Anti-Aircraft intentions. Is the air defense ability of the ATTACK BOAT considered a problem?
2. FGM-148 DAMAGE INCREASE AGAINST TANKS
The FGM-148 seems to be considered the weakest of the Anti-Tank missiles for Engineer. We have considered increasing the damage it does from 25% to 34% against tanks.
3. STEALTH JET CANNON TWEAKS
After the most recent update players are reporting the STEALTH JET 20mm cannons are now slightly over powered. Is this a universal feeling? There has also been concern about the 25mm and 30mm not receiving any changes. Are changes here desirable?
4. FAST ATTACK CRAFT CANNON TWEAKS
We are considering some minor changes to Fast Attack Craft cannons: Reducing the splash damage area against infantry, requiring the player to hit closer to targets to get quick kills. And increasing the speed and the direct damage of the Burst cannon to aid hitting aircraft. No changes are being considered for the 30mm cannon.
5. MBT AND IFV CANISTER SHELL BUFF
Canister Shells on MBT and IFV seem less popular than BF3, and could possibly use a buff. For the MBT Canister round, an increase in accuracy and damage, while for the IFV a slight increase in damage are both being considered. Finally, an increase in the projectile speed to enable them to more easily hit moving targets.
